Weekend Update..Labor Day Sales!

Happy Long Weekend and happy end of summer..Am I the only one with Fall on the brain? Kids are back in school, Pumpkin Lattes are already being poured (in our 90 degree weather) and ladies are pinning Halloween costumes on Pinterest (sexy gum ball machine??) Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm kind of a cheapskate bargain hunter, so it's hard for to pass up a good sale. And there is no better way to prepare for Fall then the Labor Day sales EVERYWHERE. I tend to skip the long lines and cursing at people while trying to snag a parking spot. I'd rather sit with my cup of joe and shop online. While a lot of stores are trying to clear out their summer items, if you look in the right places, you can find items to stock up for fall and winter. Here are some of my favorite sites and a little sample of what they have to offer right now.

1. Target, where Security probably thinks I am a crazy lady for coming in AT LEAST twice a week, Target is having a crazy clothing sale. Buy one, get one 50% off all Men's, Women's and Children's clothing, shoes and accessories. Both my sister Nickie and I already snagged these animal print sneaks. You know, cheetah is the new neutral.

2. Stella & Dot, a soft spot in my heart, I was a stylist for years and I still covet their jewelry. Snag this gem to make a statement for Fall drama. All sale items are an extra 25% off this weekend.

3. Old Navy, Love me some Plaid. I have a ton of it in my closet and will never stop. It's timeless. Pair this Plaid flannel with a quilted vest, skinnies, riding boots and you are the epitome of Fall Savvy on the go. Old Navy has a bunch of new arrivals and most of their site is up to 40% off. Spend over $50 and get free shipping.

4. Nordstrom, being budget conscious, I don't shop here too often, but a sale like this is a great opportunity to snag a designer label like these jeans. Jeans are always a good piece to invest in. In the fall and winter I probably wear my jeans 6 out of 7 days out of the week. These are the perfect skinnies to wear tucked into those riding boots. Nordstrom has a nice Clearance section now through September 7th, up to 40% off.

5. West Elm, Okay, so maybe I don't shop here regularly, or ever even (ikea anyone?). But I drool walking by their window display. Then a great sale comes along and you see this amazing mid-century modern love-seat marked down, you just might have to order it. Alright, so I won't, but maybe some hipster, young couple with an apartment in the Marina, SF will. I can day dream right? Get up to 25% off Sofas, sectionals and chairs this weekend.

6. Gap, I love Gap for my twin kindergarten boys, but as a cheapskate, I never pay full price. Especially on outwear. Two coats or jackets can add up fast. So I have to take advantage of sales like this. Sometimes even snagging a two for one deal. Always keep your eyes peeled. I love this army inspired jacket. Trendy and timeless at the same time, bonus? No obnoxious colors or cartoon characters splashed all over it! This weekend, Gap is offering up to 40% off their entire site.

7. Sephora, during sale events Sephora usually has a lot of brand collections like this one by Bare Minerals. Being a Bay Area company combined with a quality product I don't think you can go wrong with a bag of goodies like this one. Plus, they are usually compact sizes. Great pieces to throw in your purse for touch ups, or for the traveling girl. Check out their Summer Send of Sale with items up to 75% off (online only) and at check out, they often offer awesome samples to choose from.

8. J.Crew Factory, like I said, I like a good deal. And when a Factory store has a sale, I like to jump on it. Especially to stock up on work wear for the Mister. Like this plaid work shirt. I will pair it with (yes, he will put on what I suggest) tan or brown slim fit cords, a worn weather belt and an awesome pair of worn, brown wingtips. And while I'm there, I mind as well throw in a sweater or two for myself. I really love J.Crew Factory for basics and have had good luck with quality for the price. J.Crew Factory is offering up to 40-60% off their whole site for the Holiday weekend.

Have a great last weekend of summer. Wear sunblock, stay hydrated, and soak up those last rays of sunshine. Oh, and happy shopping!! Cheers, Jessica
