the find // summer sale gems

summer uniform: a jumpsuit and a cognac clutch – via tumblr

this weekend was awash in World Cup fever and glorious summer weather. all i want to do is slouch around in flat sandals and breezy linen, cotton, and silk from now until labor day weekend.

almost 4th of July also means the best summer sales are here! my picks below– [updated 7/1]

i'll take all the jumpsuits, please.
next – a few great shoes...

1. file this under best shoe find that is no longer in production – these Repetto-esque ballet flats by Maria Sharapova x Cole Haan may just be the most well-cushioned and good-looking ballets ever made (that don't veer into orthopedic territory). a friend who swears by them finally turned me on to these. and not a moment too soon, as the last of the inventory is what's online. (i find the fit TTS, though if you have a wider foot you may want to go half size up.)

2. the classic-with-an-edge sandal-heels by Emerson Fry – on my wishlist last year, but completely sold out. i really like the reasonable heel and the ankle-wrap details.

have you dipped into the summer sales? 


  1. i got a few things from zara, h&m and nasty gal (for the first time!). canada has two huge sales period: after canada day (july 1st) and boxing day (dec 26th).

  2. I ordered a jumpsuit from Swildens! I am anxious to see how it fits! But very cute b/w pattern- was not in any shops in Paris, but I hope it works!
    Have eyed a few black or white lace tops from Stella Forrest, and will probably cave to the Eric Bompard sale once the second markdown happens.. and about to pull the trigger on a dress from Ba&sh that hasnt left my mind in weeks.

    Its a good thing I have been on a business trip since Soldes started! I have made myself think about all my purchases!
