Summer never ends. Or at least that is what I am trying to convince myself of. But as I revel in the time I have left, I realize: Why not keep a “summer forever” mindset going all year round? Everyone is far more relaxed in the summer. The days are longer, the kids are aimlessly roaming around, OOO emails are at their peak, and it is appropriate to eat ice cream for breakfast (you have to cool off somehow).
And while I am sad to see this season come to an end, I am overjoyed at all of the end-of-summer sales that are coming our way. Shopbop is currently having a “Sale on Sale,” which means that some of our favorite designers are up to 75 percent off. Use code TAKE25 at checkout to get an additional 25 percent off sale items. You have until the end of today, so act fast.
There are hundreds of items on sale, but to save you time, here is a roundup of our favorite pieces — See by Chloe espadrilles, Susan Alexandra beaded bags and a Eugenia Kim floppy hat. In the warmer states, heat makes it possible to wear these pieces year-round, but if you live in a city that abides by traditional weather patterns, you have a good month or two to cram in some floppy hat-centric outfits. Then, you can stockpile your purchases until next year when summer rears its beautiful head again.
