I guess it appears I’ll be swinging one post a week for a little while here, as things are getting quite slammed over in my neck of the woods…and I have a big vacation in August to look forward to (thank God FINALLY). The summer months are always pretty busy with it being the time I’m preparing new product on a website at work, along with the usual fun events and DJ gigs. With the latter, I love wearing whatever the heck I want and getting creative. Shorty shorts are never out of the question when the sun is blaring! However, for the former, although my job is pretty lax when it comes to personal style, I still prefer a more modest option. When it’s REALLY sweltering I’ll opt for a skirt, but I’m not much of a skirt person. Not every gal has a thigh gap so chafing is always an issue, and I usually prefer the security that a pair of jeans or shorts gives!
Bermuda shorts are a great option for anyone who wants to wear shorts at work or out and about while staying more on the conservative side. Just about every one of my favorite denim companies offers knee-length options in the form of denim or soft twill, and there are definitely a lot of options to choose from out there. Colored, destroyed, cuffed, frayed…it’s just about all out there. Here are some cute styles I’d find myself wearing!
Looking for more options? Here are several more, in a wide assortment of price ranges.
It’s already that time of the year…where the heck did Halloween go? Screw that, where the hell did 2016 go?! Either way, it’s once again turkey day, and time for some of the best sales of the year. I’m always subscribed to my favorite brands’ and retailers’ newsletters in anticipation for such things, and just like I do every time, I figured I would share my favorites with you. There’s definitely far too many out there to include all here, but these are the first that I have seen, and I will be adding any new ones that pop up to this list as the week goes on! So whether you plan to party, to shop, or just relax and eat to your heart’s content this turkey day, here are some choice sales just in case you catch a bit of the shopping bug over the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s yet another long weekend, and yet another great round of sales! I plan to spend my next few days resting, going to a few concerts and clubs in Hollywood, and spending time with friends. I’m fortunate to live in California where it’s going to be nice and warm all weekend, but I know some parts the country have some inclement weather looming overhead…and I’m sure if I lived in those areas I’d be more inclined to stay at home shopping! Whatever you plan to do this weekend, if you are aching for a new pair of jeans, I’ve put together some of the best premium denim sales I could find. Enjoy, and be safe!

I often feel like somewhat of a hypocrite…my love for denim and finding the perfect deals and classic pieces for my wardrobe often butts heads with my strong beliefs in supporting local shops, being thankful for what you have, and cutting down on mindless spending and consumption. I’m always kind of battling it myself…but as I get older I see the value in owning less, in enjoying what you have, and just living a more simple and conscious lifestyle. This is one of the reasons why my writing direction has leaned towards independent designers and eco-friendly, ethical fashion along with denim, and thankfully the two have been holding hands more than ever and squeezing tighter and tighter with each passing year. Of course, when a great sale comes around, I can’t help but look, especially to find some new pieces to freshen up my product reviews or outfit posts. I’m more of an online shopper though, and sometimes find myself swimming in anxiety in brick & mortar stores. At least online, you get an easier chance to put an item aside and really think about it for awhile to avoid impulse purchases. In the store, it’s a lot easier to feel silly wandering around while deciding if a piece is really worth a purchase or returning to the store multiple times to check it out. But the other deal is the retail workers…I actually did work at an e-commerce company once, so I also know that behind the scenes can be super stressful too, especially during the holidays. So, when Black Friday and some of the best deals of the year comes around, I’m at an impasse. I actually thought about not posting about sales today, and instead making a post about being thankful and all of that good stuff. But I figured why not make a blend, as I don’t want to completely avoid supporting the brands I love, especially not those who I’ve seen making considerable strides towards more ethical manufacturing processes lately.
This will be my last post of the week and I’ll resume Monday (hmm, maybe even Wednesday), so I can enjoy family time and not feel too involved in this whole consumerism thing. For now though, for those (like me) who like the guilty pleasure of a little holiday deal shopping, here are some of my favorite brands and their current sales which extend through Black Friday. These will be continuing throughout the week unless they switch anything up, so they should be good until good ol’ Cyber Monday. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
