The level of activity around the sales right now is a bit overwhelming! Rather than list all the discounts that stores are currently offering (because frankly, everyone’s on sale and your inboxes are probably flooded with this information), I figured I would instead round up all of the pieces in my wardrobe that are now discounted. These items have been tried and tested by me and comprise of items that I either bought myself or have been in my wardrobe for some time. So let’s get to it!
Sleeper Atlanta Dress
This is a dress that I’m soooo glad I nabbed on sale as it is quite pricey new. I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while now, it has been around for some time and remains hugely popular. I really love the muted prints that this style comes in (I was very close to buying this one) but I ultimately stuck with classic navy given it’s my tried and true. This is such a comfortable dress – the perfect dress for summer nights out and easily dressed up or down depending on your shoes.
The sleeves can be styled off the shoulder and you can also push the sleeves up to create more of a puff. You don’t need to wear a bra with this one as the shirred bodice is supportive enough of your… assets. Given the slew of colours it comes in, I’ve linked several options above for you that are currently discounted – all with hefty discounts! Size wise, I went with a size XS and it’s fitted on the shirred section and loose everywhere else.
It was around this time last year that I picked up the Reformation dresses in my collection and as expected, their dresses are discounted again! While my dress features a print from past season, I’ve linked some of the current season offerings that I’ve been really tempted to buy! I really like how the dresses are both modern and feminine and don’t feature cut-outs – which can be hard to avoid these days!
Zimmermann Polka Dot Dress
A newbie in my collection (which featured in this blog post) but so great for the upcoming silly season. This dress is at least 40% off in the colour I managed to nab and also comes in two other muted tones if polka dots aren’t your thing. It’s a midi style dress for those blessed with height but I love how it’s an almost-maxi on my 5’2″ frame (without making me look frumpy). I took a size 1 and I usually wear a size AU 8.
Frankie Shop Bea Trousers
I have this style in 3 different colours (all purchased full price mind you) and the style is currently 22% off as part of Net-A-Porter’s Singles Day sale in this light blue shade, charcoal grey and this camel pinstripe version. I take a size S (and typically wear a size UK/AU 8) and cannot recommend this style enough. I have had each of my pants taken up so they hit me at the ankle as they’re quite long (they must have used an Amazonian person as their fit model!). That said, the way they sit on the leg makes the effort to have them tailored worthwhile. These have been my go-to dressy pants for the past 3 years.
Atmos & Here Blazer
This Atmos & Here blazer is in the most uplifting pastel yellow shade and it was designed in collaboration with the delightful Tina (aka Trash to Treasured). The blazer is currently on sale and comes in a suite of happy hues that I’ve also linked above. I wear a size AU 8 and it’s a great fit. The arms are a tad long and so I simply push the sleeves up for a more relaxed look.
I’ve built up a solid activewear collection in recent months and if you watched my WFH vlog on my YouTube channel then you’d be familiar with this top that I wore throughout. It features a lovely, breathable fabric and the top has a twist detail at the hem which is a nice feature. Did I mention it’s also extremely comfortable? It has been a WFH staple and one that I wear when I’m out and about running errands and going on my daily walks. I’m in a size US 4 and it’s a flattering, fitted style.
Jane Debster Boots
My favourite pair of knee high boots in my wardrobe are 30% off! They feature a 7.5cm mid-block heel and fit my (chunky) calves perfectly! I love everything about these, they hit me perfectly under the knees (knee high boots can be challenging to buy as a petite!) and the rounded pointed toe means these are versatile enough to wear in both casual and dressy looks. I have these in both the dark brown and the black (and I’m about to get my hands on the mid-brown pair!). All 3 colours are linked above for your eyeballs to feast on.
For a trusty pair of weekend sandals that are equal parts comfortable and very much of the 90s/Dad sandal vibe – it’s hard to go past a pair of good ol’ sport sandals. These are currently half price and I have these in two colours!
Another shoe style for your weekend rotation are these old school Converse sneakers that have been tweaked with more comfort features (thanks to their recent acquisition by Nike). If you wore hi tops as a kid, you might recall a break-in period required. Well, no need with the new version. These are cushy and comfy straight out of the box!
These have been price matched recently meaning you score a nifty little discount. I’m a size AU 6.5 and I wear these in the Womens 6 size.
