It almost feels weird to say Happy 4th of July weekend this year – does anyone else feel that way? Regardless of where you live, it’s definitely going to be a much different weekend than we’re used to. I know we’re all sick of distancing and masks, but please please please be mindful these next few days. If you’re not sure what is considered risky and what isn’t – I found this infographic really helpful. Depending on where you live, you don’t need to stay locked in your home, but you do need to be smart about how you socialize! Avoid crowds, keep any gatherings small, hang out outside instead of indoors, and have a mask handy if you need to get close to anyone. That’s our plan at least!
Also, before we dive into sales, I just want to call out that Equilibria’s sitewide 15% off sale ends TONIGHT! The discount will be taken when you add to your cart, and if you’re a new customer, you can also use my code (LAKESHORELADY) for an additional 15% off!! I recommend starting with the Brilliance Box that has their mint flavored CBD oil, softgels, and relief cream. When you subscribe to this box, you’ll get a 20% off discount + the 15% off sitewide + the 15% off with my code. SO MANY DISCOUNTS! If you decide you don’t want to subscribe to all 3 after your first month, Equilibria makes it really easy to modify or even cancel your order, too. You can read more about my experience with CBD here if you want to learn more!
4th of July sales 2020
what you’re shopping for:
Now that summer is here, I’m not surprised that there were a few requests for running shoes – and I’d suggest looking at DSW! They are offering 20% off this weekend and they have brands I own and love like ASICS and Nike (LOVE these in pink so much!!!).
In terms of clothing, one of my favorite tanks (tie it in the back to make it petite friendly!) and my favorite lightweight pullover (seen here!) are both on sale this weekend. Athleta also has a buy more, save more sale – and you can snag these cute running shorts, these tie dye leggings, or this cropped tank!
As for biker shorts… they’re so trendy right now, there really aren’t a lot on sale! That being said, aerie has a ton of their colors/prints on sale! I haven’t tried them, so I’m not sure how great they are for working out – but even if they aren’t, they’re a great deal for lounging! Also, someone requested spin bikes – to which I’d say, just get a Joroto bike! You can read all about our experience with our bike by the same brand in this post. (Spoiler: we love it!)
Comfy jumpsuits, rompers, and dresses:
For this category, I’ve had a lot of success with Loft recently! I own this jumpsuit that is super comfy (seen here in Small Petite), and I just ordered this dress (seen here in XSP!) and this dress (pics on me coming soon!) that are super affordable and ADORABLE.
Lou & Grey makes great basics. My favorite tank is selling out really fast, but they have a bunch of other styles included in their sale this weekend. As for shorts, I’m really partial to my Everlane ones which aren’t on sale (sorry!), but Madewell has a few on sale! Also, my sister in law was wearing these tie waist shorts the other night and they are SO CUTE in real life. Just in case you are looking for shorts that aren’t denim!
There were tons of requests for sandals in particular, and I’d definitely recommend looking at DSW and Nordstrom for those! I have these sandals in nude, but I love the snake print version that’s on sale. I also think these flat sandals are so adorable – and only $29 before 20% off!
For swimwear, I’d look at J.Crew, Aerie, and L*Space this weekend! My one piece pictured here is from last year, but they have it in a bunch of new colors and prints this year. It’s already super affordable, but you can buy one/get one free this weekend! As for L*Space, this bikini top is SO FLATTERING. I ordered the leopard version with this bottom from the Everyday Pursuits collection, and I definitely recommend snagging it on sale in “Mango” if you like the color!
For an engagement shoot, I loooove this Yumi Kim maxi so much – and with the 40% discount, it comes down to $58 which is such a steal. I also think this white linen dress is darling and very bridal. Ann Taylor also has some good options for petites – this one is so pretty and classic! You an also check out my For The Brides shop page and this post with a variety of elopement dresses, too!
*Also, I got my bridesmaids Yumi Kim robes as a gift and I wish I knew I was going to postpone my wedding, because they are such a good deal right now with the extra discount! This print and this print both have a full size run, too.
Furniture and Home Decor:
Wayfair is having a big sale on tons of sections like furniture, sofas, decor and more! West Elm is also offering 20% off of their furniture and 25% off everything else. And you can get 30% off sectionals and sofas at CB2 this weekend!
Outdoor Furniture and Decor:
Crate & Barrel is having a big outdoor sale right now – from outdoor furniture to planters to tabletop entertaining! That’s where all of our plates, glasses, platters, placemats, etc are from and I can’t recommend them enough. CB2 also has some really pretty planters, too!
