Is it just me or did the end of summer just catch you off guard too?
Today is a chilly fall-esque morning that is supposed to roll into a sunny hot afternoon. Talk about the type of day that makes your change your clothes multiple times! Thankfully, this is an outfit that works for that weather change. So going back to the tried and trues like this black tee dress and denim jacket is always a good idea.
I have had multiple black tee dresses throughout the years and its most likely due to how comfortable they are. This current one I have is made of the same material as all my jogger sets so its like walking around in pajamas in an acceptable post-covid way.
A few years ago, I also purchased this classic style denim jacket and it quickly became one of my favorite jacket layers in the closet. So pairing these two together for an off the clock look just felt right.
When styling the two, I like to throw on the denim jacket then roll the sleeves up about 3/4 of the way for a sporty look. Another way to style is to tie the denim jacket around your waist. Not only is it a great way to add some texture to a look, but its also practical for moments when you want to have it with you and not carry it. I rocked both looks here with a pair of slip-on sneakers but it can also look great with sandals too!!
Whether you roll the sleeves up or tie the jacket around your waist, its a classic pairing that always works well. What is your favorite pairing? (Keep scrolling for a listing of the Best Labor Day Sales for 2021!)

Best Labor Day Weekend Sales:
Banana Republic Factory // 50-70% off everything (no code needed!) I might get this vegan leather skirt for the fall!
Express // 40% off Everything like last year, but theres an additional 50% off clearance ( which is already marked down up to 70% off) Imagine getting this dress for $35 even though its originally $88. Black or red?
LOFT // This year they are doing the ‘more you buy, the more you get off’ approach. Its 40% off of one item, but if you buy 2+ items, its 50% off your order. PLUS all of clearance/sale is an extra 60% off. CODE IS YIPPEE! If you’re ready for Fall, here is a beautiful suede “shacket” that would be great to get now.
Sephora // Gotta get that beauty fix! Last year the site was ok for sales, but this year, if you spend $50 by Tuesday 9/14, you get 500 points which you can redeem for $10 off your next purchase. (Make sure that you’re a Sephora Insider to take advantage of this one.) Might be time for a new lipstick – maybe a neutral like this one for the fall?
Everlane // Ok – so this never happens because they rarely have sales. Currently, 50% off warm weather items if you’re up for stocking up on that! You can never have too many joggers right? Love this black one or this dusty lavender color!
Lo&Sons // Stop right there! If you have read my review on the Lo&Sons Rowledge Backpack and are interested – now is the time to strike! They are having a summer sale and its 50% off!!! My bag is the Black with gold but I also love the backpack with the lavender surprise lining. The smaller version – The Beacon – is also part of the sale. I also own the weekender bag and use it all the time too. (clearly I’m a fan!) The Waverley 2 in gray might be in my cart soon!
There are a few new brands that I am considering shopping this year, here are a few of the ones that I have my eyes on. ❤
Rothy’s // I don’t see a LBD weekend sale here, but there is an offer for first time purchasers for $20 with code WELCOME20. I am close to making a decision, it might be this pair in black. Do you own any? I love that they are washable!
Sarah Flint // Ok – these are a jump in price point, but I have seen people rave about how comfortable these shoes are. I don’t see a sale on their site, but again, being a first time purchaser – there give you a coupon code if you sign up. It’s currently going for $25 off your first order. Would love a pair of these (PP 85) – also in black to start.
Birdies // I am clearly in need of new shoes that are more sustainable based on this list – so this one came highly recommended to me. Their LBD is only on their SWAN style, but it looks to be one of their best sellers. It takes it from $140 to $95 and the discount is applied in your checkout. This pair is stunning and the perfect dupes to the Jimmy Choos Mule and I would love this pair in Navy blue.
Let me know if you have any questions! Happy shopping. ❤
