This weekend is packed with great sales as 4th of July is steadily approaching. I shopped Nordstroms, Shopbop, and Bloomingdales 4th of July sales for great buys (mostly) under $100 dollars. I specifically looked for items that would make perfect additions to any summer wardrobe. I browsed each site for swimsuits, dresses, bags, and shoes. I also shopped for items that have been featured as big trends for summer 2018.
Nordstroms per usual is having a great sale, I picked only five items that I think are easily summer essentials. Number one is a great woven bag in red and tan that will make a statement with any outfit you pair it with. Woven bags have been all over the place this summer so grabbing one on sale is a win. Two and four are both summer dresses that are right on trend. Two has the button detail down the front which has been a hit this summer and four is a wrap style dress which has also made a big comeback this summer. Three is here because I love a good leopard print shoe. These Sam Edelman sandals will get a lot of wear. I treat leopard like a neutral so a good sandal like three will go a long way. All items are linked below and come in under or around $100.
I was very impressed with Shopbop’s sale. They had some great pieces on sale for amazingly low prices given some of the designers. One and two are both circular straw bags (one is Rebecca Minkoff) each with unique details that make them stand out from the rest. Bags in a circular shape have been trending heavy this summer. Two is in a neutral color can be literally worn with anything. It would be a great bag to pair with a simple outfit that just needs a little something extra. Four and six are both gorgeous mules with unique shape details that are both flattering and modern. The color in four makes it one of my favorites finds as bright bold hues are also big this summer. Five is a nice sheer dress that I see doubling as a beautiful swimsuit cover and seven and eight are both ideal dresses for the summer. Ruffles and polka dot dresses are being sold from all retailers and selling out fast. All items are linked below, many reduced even further at check out.
Bloomingdales did not disappoint with their sale either: they had some great items for reduced prices, with many items being reduced even further at check out. Bloomingdales has a large selection of swimsuits on sale but number three, four, and five were my favorites for their design details and fit. Two is an amazing jumpsuit with cutouts in the back and one is a delicate floral dress with ruffles cascading down the skirt (which I love). Six may seem random but it’s a beautifully designed raincoat. I have been caught it almost 4 rainstorms this summer between Costa Rica, NYC, and Ireland so I highly recommend buying a summer raincoat. All items are linked below the collage, happy shopping!
