Memorial Day Weekend Sales 2020

DRESS:: old from Melissa Odabash // SANDALS:: old J.Crew (pics are from last summer- everything is old!)

Memorial Day Weekend is here (almost)! And to be honest, it feels no different than any other weekend. Slowly stores and restaurants are opening up here in CT but we will still be hanging home. I ventured out for the first time yesterday to a local nursery to look at some flowers and to be honest, it felt extremely eery. I stayed outside the entire time and everyone had on masks and gloves- hard to adjust to this new normal. 

On to MDW sales! There some amazing sales happening right now and I'm starting my roundup a little early this year. Scroll down to see!


McGEE & CO:: Such great online shop for design inspo. 20% off with code TISTHESEASUN. I have had this lamp in my cart for so long and I would love it for our home office. The coloring looks off in the picture but I spoke with customer service and the lamp is the lighter color shown- so cool. I also love this console that its pictured with. They have a beautiful selection of artwork, too. We have this print in our foyer. Love these little bell cups to fill up a bowl on a console table, coffee table or shelf. Such a beautiful coffee table book!

SERENA AND LILY:: 20% of with code LIVEWELL. If you are in the need for some beautiful pieces to perk up your outdoor and indoor space then now is the time. I've always loved this coffee table and absolutely love their newest design. How beautiful is this mirror? And a bit excessive maybe, but look at this kids dining table and these chairs? They also have the BEST selection of outdoor pillows.

DEAR KEATON:: Have loved this online shop fir years! 20-25% off depending on how much you spend! My dream outdoor chairs are now backordered until mid to late August :( but I still love them! They have a great selection of beachy things!

POTTERY BARN:: Buy more, save more event up to 25% off. This beautiful block printed table cloth and napkins just got delivered and they are perfect for someone like me who loves neutrals. I love this dining set that is seriously marked down for a limited time. PB also has a great selection of planters. I ended up going with RH estate zinc planters and right now they look like large black boxes but I plan on planting boxwoods with some pretty trailing flowers/vines. Over time the planters change color and will be a really pretty, washed light grey. This blog post that I found from 2014 gave me some much needed inspo! If I didn't go with the RH ones, I probably would have done some sort of grouping of different planters. My mom has a bunch these fluted ones scattered around her terrace and they are beautiful and come in a bunch of different sizes. She also has these long ones and they look so pretty with white cascading flowers. I'm going to buy one for our outdoor dining table.


SHOPBOP:: up to 25% off with code JUST4U- check out my post for the sale here. 

JOIE:: Extra 60% off sale- yes, 60!! Discount will show up when you go to checkout. This LWD is so beautiful and I'm shocked that the price ends up coming out to $90. And this chambray one is also beautiful and is marked down to $78. This Marysia one piece is also on major sale and comes in three colors. Obsessed with these boots (marked down to $63!) and just added to my cart for the fall! You can find some seriously good deals during this sale!

ANN TAYLOR:: 60% off your purchase with code SUMMER. Love this puff sleeve black dress. Getting MAJOR Ulla Johnson vibes from this pretty dress. I always find the best petite jeans here. Love this wide leg version.  

INTERMIX:: additional 40% off sale. So many good finds! I'm sorry I couldn't post this one sooner. Some great designer pieces have already sold out. BUT I love these shoes. I know just about every event has been put on hold for the time being but this dress would be so beautiful for a special occasion- and this one, too if you are feeling a little extra jazzy :)  Love these Chloe sandals and my size is still available...I love these Oscar de la Renta hoops and bangle! This suede Moto. ah! so beautiful.

ANTHROPOLOGIE:: extra 50% off sale!

BLOOMINGDALES:: 30-50% off a large selection. So many Chloe bags on sale. I've always loved this jumpsuit and it's on major sale.  I also love this one and its an extra 50% off. Tons of Faithful the Brand goodies on sale, too!

EVERYTHING BUT WATER:: 20% off sitewide.

A little surprise sale to kick off another week of quarantine! Shopbop is having a sitewide tiered sale- 15% off orders of $300 or more and 25% off orders of $600 or more with code JUST4U. Here are my favorites:

  • Long story short- I had to stop riding the Peloton for medical reasons but I've been doing yoga on the Peloton app almost every day and I absolutely love it. You can stream so many different classes, levels, etc. I could use a few more pairs of leggings. Love this pair

Hello and happy weekend! The weather is absolutely beautiful here. We spent all of yesterday outside and started this morning off with an early family hike around one of our favorite local trails. We plan on spending today outside as well and will finish the night off with takeout from our favorite- Boxcar Cantina (margs for mom and dad!)

I figured I was past due for a May EDIT! I've rounded up some of my favorite items this month and included a few sales going on below. Hope everyone gets outside today! Xo

ANTHROPOLOGIE40% off select dresses and shoes- so many pretty summer styles AND up to 30% off home and decor. They have some pretty outdoor pieces!

H&M: 15% off for members. They have so many pretty pieces for spring. I ordered a few things the other day but just saw this dress and think it's beautiful. I ordered this kaftan which might be a little big but I was thinking it could look cool belted.

NORDSTROM: huge clearance sale!

POTTERY BARN: up to 50% off outdoor furniture sale- I still can't decide on outdoor dining furniture. Love the look of this table and chair pairing but also think these chairs are kind of cool.

I have these from over seven years ago and they've held up extremely well. I love the Caleb style as well!

REFORMATION: 30% off everything!

Shopbop Spring Sale

DRESS:: Free People (on sale) // SHOES:: Nicholas Kirkwood (love this mule on sale

I don't know what this summer will look like BUT what I do know is that over the weekend when the sun was shining and the weather was beautiful, I ditched my leggings and actually got dressed. And guess what? It felt really good. I don't plan on getting dressed up every day (I'm currently in leggings and my Dudley fleece) but putting on actual clothes totally shifted my mood. Today I woke up to a fresh Shopbop sale with some beautiful summer pieces up to 40% off (and tons discounted even more!). I treated myself to this dress and this smocked top. My Free People dress that I bought way back when is also included in the sale!  

  • I love these earrings and they would be a beautiful gift for Mother's Day. 
  • This dress is so pretty! I love the color and cut!
  • I really want to try this jumpsuit- it can be worn every day casually or dressed up and it's under $100!
And now back to home schooling!

Sunday Shopping

DRESS:: Sohalia // STOOLS:: Article // CONSOLE:: Safavieh (here also!) // PAINTING:: Jenn Thatcher (similar style here) RUG:: Stanton Carpet via Redicut Westport

What a weekend weather wise! Yesterday was BEAUTIFUL. It's crazy how much a sunny day can boost your mood. We spent the entire day outside and plan to do the same today. We put together a water table for Ellie and all four kids ended up playing with it for the entire afternoon- even my seven year old! On to my Sunday Shopping post!
  • My dress above is by Sohalia- they have some really beautiful block printed pieces for the warmer months. They are offering 20% off orders with code INMYCLOSET20. 
  • I never thought I'd be writing about a vacuum cleaner but my aunt convinced me to get a cordless Dyson and it has been a game changer. I vacuum constantly- now more so than ever with a shedding dog! I ended up buying the Dyson V11 Animal Cordless- it's expensive but currently on sale- and it's amazing. It works SO well! I can actually use it for the entire house and not just for every day kitchen clean ups. They have some other models currently on sale and I think they are all really good. 
  • Lots of questions about our outdoor furniture from yesterday's post. We got our sectional from West Elm and I plan on adding another chair from the collection to the side. The entire collection is currently on sale! I still need a coffee table and two large planters for either side of the sectional, under our big lanterns- I'm having the hardest time finding large planters that can stay outside all winter long- do you have any you love?
  • I found some amazing designer deals while online browsing this week- I hope they haven't already sold out! How beautiful is this Chloe bag that is 45% off! I haven't seen this style before and think its timeless and beautiful. And this one is GORGEOUS too and also 45% off. I love that it can be a shoulder bag- perfect for every day use. Every single color is beautiful. Meira T has been a fine jewelry line that I've loved for years now. This necklace is so beautiful and on major sale with an extra 20% off with code DONTWAIT. I love this one, too!

Mother's Day with Haverhill

BIRTHSTONE NECKLACES:: Haverhill (c/o) // TOP:: Wayf 

I think Mother's Day should be celebrated for the entire month of May this year. What do you all think? Good, glad we agree!

I'm asked almost daily about my layers of necklaces. Each piece that I wear holds special meaning to me. One of my most cherished necklaces is my birthstone necklace by Haverhill which has a birthstone for each member of our family. I've had it since last summer and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I recently added a longer Birthstone Necklace in all white topaz for layering and I think it looks beautiful with my other necklaces. The Haverhill Birthstone necklace is made of solid gold and gemstones and it is completely customizable. You can choose up to nine different birthstones! Haverhill also makes birthstone bracelets as well as many other beautiful pieces. They are so kind and offering a special discount for my readers- 15% off your order with code CHRISSY15. The Birthstone Necklace and Bracelet would make the perfect, sentimental and meaningful gift this Mother's Day. I think the bracelet would be so precious for a grandmother! Order cutoff date for Mother's Day is 4/29!

Best Beauty Buys from the Sephora Spring Event

This will be my SECOND time writing this post- I had finished it and I guess never hit save and accidentally clicked out of my browser and everything was deleted. 

Anyways! Sephora launched their Beauty Insider Spring Event where members can save up to 20% off sitewide. Rogue members (the highest level) can take 20% off, VIB can take 15% off (access starts today!), and Insiders can take 10% off (you can still sign up to be an insider and shop the sale- and Insiders can start shopping Thursday!). Use code SPRINGSAVE at checkout!

I'm so bummed because my roundup was extremely thorough and detailed and I don't have the time right now to redo everything but I'm going to try my best!

  • DRUNK ELEPHANT:: Drunk Elephant as been a favorite "clean" brand of mine for a few years now. I use their Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizing Cream every day (great moisturizer for dry skin without feeling cakey and greasy) and also use their C-Firma Vitamin C Serum (gives you such a nice glow). I received a package of their samples a few months ago and was able to test out some products I hadn't tried yet. I ended up loving their under eye cream and their Protini moisturizer. If you are looking to test out the brand you can buy your own bundle of samples- it includes a ton of great products. The T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial has a cult like following. It's a mask/treatment that you are supposed to use once a week to help with texture, tone and clarity. I just added it to my cart! (PS I think pregnant and nursing mothers are supposed to avoid this product) I also always have a bottle of their Virgin Marula oil- great for those days when my skin is feeling extra dry.  
  • LIPGLOSS:: I haven't tried anything groundbreaking lately but have heard rave reviews of this one by Fenty. (Even the Sephora reviews are crazy good!) I'm going to try it in Sweetmouth.
