I haven’t been paying too much attention to new releases and recent sales since I’ve already put a dent in my fall shopping with this, this, and this, but there are a few things worth noting:

Yolonda alerted me to the Rebecca Taylor sale that has plenty of great items with an additional 40% off. I love the pleated black skirt that comes in at just $78 after the additional discount. Cheaper than J.Crew!

Photo darling Grey Malin’s prints all come with free framing this weekend. 

There’s plenty of time left to enter to win $150 to spend on jewelry at KiraKira. Enter here.

I’m rarely a fan of pre-layered clothing, but I’m definitely crushing on this top. If you’re a high roller, you could pair it with Piperlime’s exclusive clutch. The first 100 orders receive free monogramming. 

The last thing I need is a pair of smoking slippers for fall, but how cute are these? This necklace is also noteworthy with real malachite and lapis. Better yet, the price is an incredibly reasonable $68. Well done, C.Wonder.

This isn’t style-related in the slightest, but this recipe for kabobs was outstanding. I didn’t use a food processor, though. Mashing up the garlic and spices in a bowl worked just fine. I also added one teaspoon of cayenne. (I suppose if you wanted to make this sidebar more fashionable, you could consider this colorblock apron.) 

Have you entered to win $150 to spend at KiraKira yet? No? Hop to it. There are travel-inspired jewels with your name on ‘em. Good luck!

For me, this summer was all about loose, comfortable pieces. I’m anxious for a return to ladylike silhouettes this fall, starting with this dark floral skirt. It’s at the top of my fall shopping list. What’s topping your must-have list? 

I actually own the DVF clutch above and it’s one of my closet staples. It’s sophisticated and versatile, but there are other colors available if you’re not on the market for a black clutch.

Have you had a chance to shop the Tory Burch private sale? There’s not a lot left, but there are still great pieces in the regular sale section on the site. I love this pretty blue dress and this ’60s-inspired swingy top

C.Wonder is having a sale on its end-of-season wares. Would you believe this bracelet is only $34? There’s another version with an anchor for even less. I’m also smitten with the darling needlepoint key fob embellished with a sweet crab and anchor motif. 

Kate Spade released the 2015 day planners for fellow paper-loving list makers. I like the green ikat most (there’s mint on the inside, for goodness sakes!), but it’s also available in two of last year’s most popular prints: gold polka dots and black and white stripes

Congrats to Erika, the winner of the UGallery.com giveaway. I can’t wait to see what you spend your winnings on!

How cute are those polka dot flats? They’re currently 50% off ($44!) and seem like the perfect ballet flat to bring to Belgium. You can see more photos of them on Rosa Loves DC for her collaboration with Ann Taylor. She has the prettiest photography and if you’re not already following her, you should be.

A wide-brimmed hat is something I’ve wanted for as long as I can remember, but I just don’t think I’m a “hat girl.” The one above is on the pricey side, but you can find a cheaper alternative here.

Technically the round pouch is for cosmetics, but wouldn’t it make for the most darling clutch for relaxed summer days? It also comes in a punchy coral stripe.

My weekly “Currently Coveting” post usually includes splurges that I can’t afford, so I challenged myself to create a board of only items under $100 proving (to myself) that style doesn’t have to cost a fortune. 

1. Samudra, $65 | 2. NARS, $20 | 3. Pim + Larkin, $98* | 4. Shashi, $35 | 5. Gorjana, $40 | 6. Madewell, $12.50 | 7. J.Crew, $69.50** | 8. Heather Hawkins, $88 | 9. Topshop, $70 | 10. J.Crew, $55**

*The review for this dress is terrible, but I bought it and love it. Finally, a shift dress that looks good on girls with hips. I went with my regular size (medium) and it fits perfectly. The only downside is that the dress smells rancid right out of the package. Most of the smell faded after one wash and a generous spritz of Febreeze.

**Take 30% off of the J.Crew items with code HISUMMER. The discount ends tomorrow.
