Labor day is a weekend full of BBQs, spending time with friends, and sales! I took part in a few of the above, but since this is a fashion post, let’s talk sales. I was waiting for a good weekend to shop and there aren’t many better times than Labor Day! Rather than wander around a dark mall all day while it was gorgeous out, I went to the outdoor mall where I got some sun inbetween stores. I love factory stores. I think my style is pretty classic, and because I don’t wear anything super trendy, the things I buy the are from “last season” translate perfectly well into this season’s wardrobe. In addition to factory stores, there are tons of great sales going on everywhere because of the holiday, and most places are carrying fantastic fall pieces! NOW is the time to shop for Fall and Winter. I know, I know I just posted about how I’m not ready for the season switch yet, but with my new fedora, flannel, and booties, I’m starting to change my mind. Pretty soon you’ll see me using cliché words like “transitional.” For now, I’ll stare at my new pieces in my closet, at least until the temperature drops below 80.
