The Summer Sales You Want to Shop Right Now

You guys, it’s like the world wants me to shop. I recently got a raise at work, and today’s paycheck was the first one to reflect it! Yesss. Not only that, there are so many sales out there right now.

Here’s a mixture of both stuff I have my eye on and just some general good deals you should get on.

Nordstrom J. Crew Lululemon Sale

1. Kate Spade Gramercy watch: A watch is actually originally what I told myself I’d get with a raise, and this one is super pretty and girly, but I’m not sure if it’s too big. I’m trying to move on from the omg Michael Kors watch that every girl (and myself) has, and I think this may be too similar.

2. Nike Free Flyknit 5.0 TR: I’m not usually a Nike girl, but these are pretty, right?!

3. Clarisonic Mia 2 Mod Floral Sonic Skin Cleansing System: I resisted the Clarisonic for so long. WHY?! My skin feels so much cleaner and softer since I saw the Clarisonic light. This one is just pretty.

4. Frye Melissa Tab High Knee Boot: If you’ve had your eye on a pair of Frye boots for a while, now is the time to get them! They’re more than $100 off their regular price in the Nordstrom sale.

5. Lululemon Run: Pace Setter Skirt: YOU GUYS. It’s only $34. That is a steal! I’ve run three out of my four marathons in this and highly recommend, especially at this price. If I didn’t already have four…I would get this one. This is a part of their online warehouse sale, which is having some awesome sales.

6. J. Crew Sleeveless Embroidered Sunburst Dress: There is truly nothing contemporary about my “style” (all LP, all the time), but I think this dress is a perfect mix of preppy-yet-contemporary to be worn at the beach. ALSO, J. Crew is having a 30% off sale with the code GOSHOPPING.

A Perfect Summer Day

This post was sponsored by Athleta through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about Athleta, all opinions are my own.

Who else is still a little incredulous that it’s finally summer? Like, I kind of believe a flash snowstorm is going to come out of nowhere.

What does a perfect summer day look like to you? To me, it’s going for a morning run and then spending the day at the beach. Recently, I was lucky enough to do that multiple times! We even started using the hashtag #LadiesOfAthleisure because we woke up for a workout one morning and stayed in workout clothes through brunch and late afternoon. My friends were a little uncomfortable with this, but I told them it was totally normal in my world.

Athleta Essence Energize Tank Top

I have so much love for this running outfit. I wore the top for the Brooklyn Half (13.1 approved is saying a lot!) and I rarely run in shorts, but these are my jam. The wide waistband is really flattering, and the length is flattering for a 30-something without looking frumpy. The Athleta website says the top provides “medium support” for A-B cups, but I still found it supportive with a C-cup.

Athleta Ready Set Short

Any weird tan lines from the top are completely worth it, since it’s so gorgeous.

Shelter Island Sunset Beach

You guys, it was a really hard day at the beach.

Athleta Aqua Luxe Bikini

I love me a good triangle top, and the Aqualuxe bikini top was flattering while still being tasteful. And my stomach needs to catch up to my arms in the tanning department.

What does a perfect active summer day look like to you?
