Memorial Day Sales & Day Dresses Shopping Guide

May 26, 2017 - 115 Comments

Summer is right around the corner and it’s one of my favorite seasons for so many reasons, but one of the main ones is that there are so many more fun events and parties happening than the rest of the year. Graduations are around this time, there are always so many weddings, and I feel like every weekend I have a different reason to wear a cute dress. I was doing a bit of online shopping recently and found SO MANY cute summer dresses that are the perfect mixture of casual and playful yet dressy enough to wear somewhere nice if you need to. It’s also Memorial Day Weekend and there are an insane amount of great Memorial Day sales going on, so I’ll point those out as much as possible! You definitely can’t forget about Nordstrom’s Half-Year sale..I mean they have two sales per year and this is one of them. Thousands of items are up to 40% off, which to be honest might be a little dangerous for me. Net-a-Porter is up to 50% off, Topshop is having a 40% off sale and Moda Operandi is up to 50% off (plus an extra 20% off Moda Operandi with the code EXTRA20), AND up to 70% off at Shopbop — yeah, I did my research *hair flip*. There are a few things that I look for in the perfect dress — stripes or gingham, off-the-shoulder, some ruffles here and there, and mostly a shape that is flattering to me and makes me look tall. If it can have one or a few of these, I’m sold. This Caroline Constas dress was one of my favorites last summer, and she has even more amazing ones this season, like #5 and #9. Apart from these, you can get up to 30 and 40% off Caroline Constas pieces here, here, and here!aimee song of style summer dresses and memorial day sales1.

This Anna October dress did everything right for me at Cannes. Anna October is one of my favorite dress designers because the pieces are whimsical but dressy and she uses the prettiest colors. The ruffles are so much fun and seriously the perfect dress for a wedding or a party. I also love this colorful ruffle dress by Anna October, and there’s 30% off her other pieces here!

12. Anna October (30% off more Anna October pieces here!)I love wrap dresses like this star print Privacy Please dress (#3) because they let me show off my legs with the asymmetrical hem and there’s something so relaxed yet dressy about them. Lace dresses make me feel like a princess (I mean I am, but that’s not the point), and Self-Portrait literally never disappoints. I found quite a few Self-Portrait dresses that I’m pretty sure I need, and I found some super affordable versions of them that look so expensive! #8 is only $150 and #9 is only $75! aimee song of style summer dresses and memorial day sales1.
