Tough Pastels

It has been so warm here this weekend that it felt right to dress like spring. (You are correct — it did snow last week and this week it will be in the 70s. Everything is weird here.) Spring is my favorite season, I get giddy just thinking about it. Mainly because spring means color and you know this girl loves color.

Just a PSA for my girls out there: if you want high-quality pieces for cheap, go to the sale racks right this moment. Sure you are at work or you have other responsibilities like babies or school, but this is dire. Go right this moment. I mean, I got this cashmere sweater for $25 and it was originally like a million dollars. I didn’t do the math, but I’m pretty sure it was more than 80% off. (Side note: maybe this is just in Texas because we never have a long winter here. I’ve always wondered that. Do you guys up north have great summer sales and we get the winter sales?)

You are welcome for spreading this message of hope. Friends don’t let friends take sales lightly.

    I frequently wonder about this too. Miami summer sales are not as great as winter sales. I got a fabulous pink blazer at LOFT this weekend for less than $30! It was 65% off! 

    I love the necklace you’re wearing here. I think I agree with you on spring being my favorite season, but I sort of say that about every season. E.g., I really liked fall this year (last year). The thing is, I love color, period. I sort of wear it all the time. But there’s something about soft spring pastels that really make me happy.

    We have great sales going on right now in the Midwest. It’s still cold as hell here, but all of the stores are dumping the winter stuff for the new spring merch. So, we’re able to get great deals on winter clothes and still wear them – win/win!

    It’s so funny you should write a post about this…for the first time this year, I decided to take advantage of these “winter sales” because we too (OC, Southern Ca) have it weird here…raining and cold one day and 80 degrees the next! I may or may not have scored a sweet vintage style leopard coat from Forever for $15.00. Down from $65.00! Love today’s look (as ALWAYS.) Xo

    I live in Louisiana, which is basically the same crazy “winter” that y’all get in Texas except with even less snow…just a shit load of rain.  Every store around here has bathing suits, neons and short shorts out right now and every single winter item is on super sale.  It’s pretty awesome, because while this week it may be sunny and 78*,  in a few days it very well may be wet, overcast and frigidly cold (and by frigid, of course I mean below 55*…no dramatics here.)  It makes padding my wardrobe with quality pieces pretty easy! :)

    PS – I’m seriously adoring this combo.

    I’d comment about sales, but to be honest, where I’m from, we tend to not pay attention to that kind of stuff around this time of year! Half the people are just happy to get their cars started and get to work on time – this past weekend it was -40+ degrees in my hometown. That’s with windchill factor. Actual temps are -17, I think, but it’s so dangerous, you can’t be outside more than a few minutes, for fear of your health. Makes clothing become a necessity rather than fashion. Sad, but true. We wear shorts when it gets above zero, I remember seeing the college kids do that. And flip flops. We are hearty folk :)

    I thought it was just the stores around here, but holy cow – I’ve never seen sales this good. I bought a shirt for $4 the other day – $4!! But it’s crazy, because I live in AZ. Our weather calls for t-shirts and flip-flops all year long (at least that’s how it’s been this past year I’ve lived here). I don’t get why everyone is having a huge “winter” sale…. all of the “winter” clothes have been pretty much the same as the spring/summer clothes they’ve been bringing out. Ha. But hey – I’ll take it. I bought a cute skirt, a gorgeous silk shirt, and a pair of shoes for about $30. I’m not complaining.

        No, I actually bought it at JC Penney. I literally haven’t shopped there in years (not really my style), but they had some stellar sales going on so I figured I’d check it out. They surprisingly had some really good picks in my size.

        I’ve had the same problem with J. Crew, though – all of their sale items are either ridiculously small or ridiculously large! And thanks – I’m always a sucker for a good tie neck blouse.

  100. Love this spring-like outfit. Purple looks great on you and how fabulous is that necklace! Here in the northeast, winter goes well into March and April, so we probably won't see any winter sales until the end of Feb!

    I frequently wonder about this too. Miami summer sales are not as great as winter sales. I got a fabulous pink blazer at LOFT this weekend for less than $30! It was 65% off! 

    I love the necklace you're wearing here. I think I agree with you on spring being my favorite season, but I sort of say that about every season. E.g., I really liked fall this year (last year). The thing is, I love color, period. I sort of wear it all the time. But there's something about soft spring pastels that really make me happy.

  107. Lovin' the pastels.  And yes, the sales are AMAZING right about now.  I just scored 3 pairs of shoes at J. Crew for like 80% off and saved a bajillion dollars… which I believe is more than a million, so I win! :-)

    I love it.  Seriously, that's a great deal.  I don't live in the north, but we have great summer and winter sales.  Our weather is somewhere in the middle, so maybe you're right.

    It's so funny you should write a post about this…for the first time this year, I decided to take advantage of these "winter sales" because we too (OC, Southern Ca) have it weird here…raining and cold one day and 80 degrees the next! I may or may not have scored a sweet vintage style leopard coat from Forever for $15.00. Down from $65.00! Love today's look (as ALWAYS.) Xo

    I live in Louisiana, which is basically the same crazy "winter" that y'all get in Texas except with even less snow…just a shit load of rain.  Every store around here has bathing suits, neons and short shorts out right now and every single winter item is on super sale.  It's pretty awesome, because while this week it may be sunny and 78*,  in a few days it very well may be wet, overcast and frigidly cold (and by frigid, of course I mean below 55*…no dramatics here.)  It makes padding my wardrobe with quality pieces pretty easy! :)

    PS – I'm seriously adoring this combo.

    I also heard the opposite – not to get anything at the End of Season Sales… You don’t want to be stuck with a whole bunch of last season’s clothes and be outdated. But things like monotone sweaters, boots and such are always in style. So buy classic pieces that can transfer from season to season

  160. I'd comment about sales, but to be honest, where I'm from, we tend to not pay attention to that kind of stuff around this time of year! Half the people are just happy to get their cars started and get to work on time – this past weekend it was -40+ degrees in my hometown. That's with windchill factor. Actual temps are -17, I think, but it's so dangerous, you can't be outside more than a few minutes, for fear of your health. Makes clothing become a necessity rather than fashion. Sad, but true. We wear shorts when it gets above zero, I remember seeing the college kids do that. And flip flops. We are hearty folk :)

    I thought it was just the stores around here, but holy cow – I've never seen sales this good. I bought a shirt for $4 the other day – $4!! But it's crazy, because I live in AZ. Our weather calls for t-shirts and flip-flops all year long (at least that's how it's been this past year I've lived here). I don't get why everyone is having a huge "winter" sale…. all of the "winter" clothes have been pretty much the same as the spring/summer clothes they've been bringing out. Ha. But hey – I'll take it. I bought a cute skirt, a gorgeous silk shirt, and a pair of shoes for about $30. I'm not complaining.

    you have such a knack for putting together outfits that would at first make me go "girl, whaaaaa?" like with that necklace, but the outfit makes it look less crazy and now is actually really inspiring.

    Now is the BEST time for sales and I live in Chicago, so, totally winter sales. I went to JCrew and left feeling like I stole everything (hello silk shell originally over $100 for only $25). 

    This was Saturday, I'm still bragging.

    Great outfit! Lavender and olive look soo good together! Creative necklaces are always a fun addition and can't go wrong with nude wedges. You are too cute!

    I love the pastels paired with the olive pants!  It seems like there's great sales to be had all year round.  I always wondered the same thing too.  I think the sales maybe the same but the selection are not as good for winter clothes in cold place and maybe same in warm places?

    Totally drooling over that necklace! I love the layered lavender with plaid, once again, you've inspired another outfit for me, thanks :) As for those sales… I wish, but I've got so much stuff that I think I'm going to have to work through what I already have, lol.

    I'd love to go to the sales rack right now but I think I've hit them too much already… For some reason shoes were so cheap at the sales recently? Bought at least 8 pairs!

    Hi, Rachel! Did you get your $4.00 shirt from J crew? I live in (Tucson)  AZ too. I went to our one and only J crew here in Tucson last week and not much merchandise left. A lot of the items are either XXS, XS or XL…Hardly find anything that fits me.

    No, I actually bought it at JC Penney. I literally haven't shopped there in years (not really my style), but they had some stellar sales going on so I figured I'd check it out. They surprisingly had some really good picks in my size.

    I've had the same problem with J. Crew, though – all of their sale items are either ridiculously small or ridiculously large! And thanks – I'm always a sucker for a good tie neck blouse.

  260. I’ve found the physical shopping arena in Chicago somewhat unappealing right now. Stores are completely bare! (and the new stuff? no thanks.)

    I’ve been having a lot of luck with online sale shopping. With all the free shipping offers, the only unfortunate thing is the waiting game…and I’m not the most patient of people!
