Summer Deals That will Take You into Fall!

All true fashionistas and die-hard shoppers know that August is the absolute best month to shop for end-of-the-season clothes! Granted, most of your finds probably won't be able to be worn until next summer, but there are definitely pieces out there that can be layered and incorporated into your fall wardrobe.

Check out some of these end-of-summer deals that will also work during the cooler months ahead!


Michael by Michael Kors Cotton Stretch Safari Shirt $35 originally $70 available at www.vivre.com. This classic piece will look fresh and chic under a chunky knit cardigan.


Michael by Michael Kors Tank Dress $98.90 was originally $149.50 available at www.nordstrom.com. This adorable frock can be instantly updated for the fall with a tailored blazer and opaque or textured tights.


Conspicuous Mini Doll Double-Breasted Jacket $97.90 was originally $247 available at www.nordstrom.com. This light-weight jacket will suit you better than a light-weight sweater during the upcoming cooler season.


Aldo Leather Peep-toe Platforms $69.99 was $295 available at www.aldo.com. You know I love a sexy peep-toe shoe and this pair will definitely take you into the fall in style if worn with black tights; perfect for a cool night out on the town.

Have you found any great end-of-season deals lately? What's is your best sale item ever?

BGG, it's official. I don't know a thing about fashion! Is August really the best time to shop? I never knew that but I guess it does make sense. The problem is I never know what size I'll be in a year! Anyway, I love all your selections...especially the white blouse. I love the peep toe shoes too but I would never have thought to pair them with black opaque tights. Hmmmm I'd have to see that one. Oh well, we're lucky here in H-town cause we have a few more months of summer to enjoy tank tops and flip flops! BTW, don't you just love Michael Kors!

Thanks for the heads up on these sales.

I am so not an end of season shopper because I'm so focused on the upcoming season, but I'm going to switch that up this year. Thanks for the ideas.

@K-Bear - You'd be surprised how black tights can really transform looks. They're my favorite fall/winter accessories! Are tights considered an accessory? Anyway, you know what I mean! :-)

Love that crisp white shirt and the double-breasted jacket!

BGG Oh no! Fall is almost here, but I'm still enjoying my wardrobe. But I do like the mini jacket and the price is not bad.

12kyle i agree with you

@Solshine - Thank you sooooo much!!! I am going to include the "Vote For Me" Weblog Awards link with my Fabulous Photos of the Week. Again, that's so kind of you! I'm truly honored. :-)

I have a question for anyone who's still reading. What in heaven's name makes Aldo think they can sell a pair of shoes for $250. I was in there yesterday and saw that madness. You're either high end or you're not. You don't see Manolo Blahnik with $60 shoes and $300 shoes in the same store with the same label. It just doesn't make sense to me.

Tawanna said...

I wish I had time to shop! Love that Micheal Kors shirt!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@T- I had no clue that Aldo sold shoes for that high!!! I would be so upset if I had bought something for nearly $300 only to see it go down to $70!

Did u read my mind bgg? I am going shopping this weekend to search for some end of season sales... I'll be on the lookout for that jacket!

MeMe said...

Although I am not a die hard fashionista, I do know that now is the time to shop, shop, shop!!! The sales are absolutely fantastic right now. I almost feel like it's the time to spend money to save money because if you don't buy it now it'll be like throwing money up into the air if you buy something similar next summer season full price.
