One of my favorite looks is on MAJOR SALE! Embellished Jacket  / Colorful Trim Jeans / Wedge Espadrilles

I’m so excited for the long weekend ahead!  My hubby and oldest are off to do some more college visits and I’m wearing one of my favorite “mom hats” all weekend: Soccer Mom!  My middle has a tournament and I love to watch her play.  I’ll also be cooling off inside between games doing some online shopping with this is of the Best Labor Day Sales!

If you are cooking out to celebrate, be sure to check out recipe section and Make This Weekend series.  So many great recipes for summer.  Don’t forget my Outdoor Entertaining Tips as well.  I know one night I’ll be relaxing poolside with one of my favorite cocktails after back to back soccer games.

One sale I want to highlight is one of my favorites: Veronica Beard  They are having final sale with up to 70% off with CODE: FINAL15 on wear now and into fall pieces.  This dress and this one, too, are perfect for now into fall.  The jacket and  the jeans from this post are available in every size and only $90!  I get stopped and asked about both pieces all the time!  This, and this, are perfect for fall and under $200. The favorite pants are $84!  Love these shoes and can’t believe they are available in all sizes!  I may need this for my upcoming cruise to Spain!  It’s also on trend with the peacock highlights.  I’ll stop now but if you are a VB fan, don’t miss this sale!
