Hello from Arizona! I’m currently spending time with family and enjoying the desert landscape. I’m also trying not to sweat my life away in these hot temperatures. Dry heat or not, it’s pretty toasty!
How beautiful are those red flowers in some of the photos? I’ve got a fun little tidbit for you about them: they’re called the Pride of Barbados and were included in the veil for Mrs. Meghan Markle at her wedding. She wanted to have all the UK commonwealths represented with her on that special day, so a flower from each one was stitched into her veil. Since the Pride of Barbados is, you guessed it, the national flower of Barbados, it was chosen for them. Pretty interesting, huh?
Now back to our regularly scheduled fashion programming…
While I was going through the summer sale racks I couldn’t stop thinking how many great options there were for fall that were ALREADY ON SALE! Cute sweaters and sweatshirts, pants in nice autumn colors, and long sleeve dresses.
I’m pretty sure a lot of you feel like I do right now: you’re still shopping for summer heat, but also want to get a jump start on next season. So I thought I would round up a few sale options from H&M (all under $28) that will take you right into those lower temperatures.
And I had this same feeling about items that were SO FALL on sale in another one of my favorite stores: Banana Republic! Can’t you just see that floral top looking absolutely perfect with jeans, brown boots, a cozy scarf, and wool hat? And BR sale items are an extra 50% off through Saturday, so it’s an even better deal.
Part of me wants to be able to wear some of these transitional pieces ASAP, and another part of me wants more summer. I’m DEFINITELY feeling that summer heat in Arizona, and I’ll be back to that East Coast humidity in Richmond next week. Who knows when it will start to feel cool enough for fall clothes, but it’s never too early to start shopping for them 😉
