Labor Day Wish List

There are a few times a year when I shop...I mean REALLY hide bags in the trunk and hope Ross doesn't see our online banking statement kind of shopping. 

The deals over Labor Day weekend aren't necessarily any better than Memorial Day, President's Day, Black Friday or the day after Christmas sales, but for some reason I always seem to do most of my fall/winter shopping during this weekend. I try to stock up on basic pieces that can be remixed during the months of October through February.

There are a few new styles that I have my eyes on, a handful of trends that I am still loving from last year and a few pieces that I want more of for the upcoming seasons. 

Labor Day 2014 Sales and Wish List

I am happy to see that buffalo check/plaid is back again. I picked up a few pieces last year and am loving this dress from the Gap, this one from Old Navy and the black and white version of this scarf.

I love the relaxed feel of distressed boyfriend jeans. I have the best luck buying my denim at Old Navy and Gap. I featured this pair from the Gap above, but also really like the wash of this pair too.

Because I have gotten so much wear our of my utility cargo vest from Old Navy, I plan on grabbing the jacket version this year as well. It's a versatile piece that can be layered over just about anything. 

Last year I took the plunge and purchased a few faux leather pieces. I wore all of them more than I expected and look forward to making a few more purchases with leather detailing like this skirt and sweater from J.Crew Factory.

Most retailers started their Labor Day sales yesterday, but they all will through Monday.

If you are planning to do a little shopping during the three day weekend, here are a few of my favorite stores that are celebrating the holiday with super sales and prices that you won't want to pass up.

OLD NAVY - Up to 40% off the entire store and online.

EXPRESS - Everything is 40% off.

So much goodness! I, somehow, do not own a buffalo check scarf yet so that needs to be resolved. And I'm with you on the utility jacket, I think he needs to come home with me as well.
