Summer Flag

Happy 4th of July weekend! In preparation for all the celebrating you’ll be doing, I’ve put together 8 “Nom nom n0-bake” recipes for you. In preparation for all the shopping you’ll be doing (I started on Monday and have already received a few items!), I’ve rounded up 15 stellar sales and my picks of the best items.

1. ANTHROPOLOGIE – Take an extra 20% off sale. I love this detailing on this.

2. BANANA REPUBLIC – Take 30% off regular items with code BRTHIRTY and up to 50% off sale items with code BRGOBIG. I think it’s hard to go wrong with this dress.

3. BERGDORF GOODMAN – Up to 70% off. The Oscar de la Renta item I scored at this sale (no longer available – but this is) is already on its way to me.

4. BLOOMINGDALE’S – Take an extra 20% – 75% off on select items.

5. CLUB MONACO – Take an extra 30% off sale + 40% off clearance with code THESALEONSALE. This dress is so Kate Moss 90s, and this one says minimalist haute couture.

6. CUSP – Take an extra 30% off sale items (discounts applied at checkout). You can never have too many of these.

7. GAP – Up to 50% off. This top in black and white, blue and black, and orange, and two pairs of these (my favorite denim for the past 6 months) arrived on my doorstep this morning.

8. HENRI BENDEL – 50% off Sale. This lady-like leather satchel is a classic piece, to be worn year-round. This rose gold beauty makes a polished statement and can be worn with just about anything.

9. HORCHOW – Take 20% off the entire site.

10. JOURNELLE – Take up to 70% off select items. I’ve heard good things about these and these.

11. NEIMAN MARCUS – Take an extra 35% off sale items (discounts applied at checkout). Thrilled that the two Oscar de la Renta items (I got the same thing in two different colors) I scored at this sale are already on their way to me. We received these as a gift from our wedding registry (thank you Natasha and Brian!) and are thinking about getting another set while they’re on sale.

12. POTTERY BARN – Take an extra 30% off clearance items with code EXTRA15. This beautiful embroidered bedding is a designer-favorite, and can be monogrammed. I hope they don’t discontinue it. This piece can transport an entire bathroom to the beach. And this set all about zen.

13. SERENA & LILYThese towels are everything.

14. URBAN OUTFITTERS – Take an extra 30% off sale items (discounts applied at checkout). Urban Outfitters has been one of my favorite place to shop for on trend pieces lately. How pretty is this Indian-inspired top? This little peek-a-boo number is great for layering, and if you can do a 30″ inseam (I need about 5 more inches), this one-piece is yes, please.

15. TOPSHOP – I am in need of new tops and this flirty top and this  feminine top are in my cart.

This fruit flag wins the prize for cutest dessert with least amount of effort. Cherries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt-covered pretzels, and a rectangular tray (this one is great) are all you need.
