The Dress Every Woman Needs + Sales

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  Let the (unofficial) kickoff to summer begin!  Does everyone have fun plans?  I'm spending the weekend in Burlington, Vermont with the whole family.  We have some family members running in the Vermont City Marathon, so we're headed there to cheer them on!  I'm excited for a weekend filled with family, BBQs, and roaming around Burlington.  However, I'll be making sure to take a little time for online shopping, because there are a lot great sales going on! I rounded up my favorite stores having sales, along with the items that I have my eye on.  I already bought this top in white, and this top is next on my list.  I'm thinking it will be perfect for those cooler nights by the lake.

Now lets talk about this dress.  If you don't own it, I'm serious when I say you should!  Not only is the cotton material comfortable and a perfect for a hot summer day, but this dress is super flattering.  I've seen it look good on so many different body shapes, and I love how the ruching hits in the right spot, concealing the leftover twin pouch (okay, I can't blame them anymore, I need to blame the Hershey Kisses I eat daily).  I also love that I can throw it on with sneakers or sandals for a cute daytime look, or dress it up with heels and a pair of statement earrings.  Although this dress is not on sale, it is under $60 and comes in nine colors.  (It does come in a denim and coral color, which is on sale, but I believe there is only size XL available).  You can bet I'll be adding another color to my wardrobe real soon, I'm thinking the black is a must!
