I get a lot of e-mails from various retailers about the sales they’re having. I don’t typically get very excited about a sale that’s only 15 or 20 percent off, but an e-mail about a sale that’s 50 percent off is enough to tempt me to at least check out what’s available. As my inbox so kindly informed me yesterday, Kate Spade Saturday is currently having a 50 percent off sale. So fun! The sale applies to nearly everything (excludes New Balance and customized weekender bags), including sale styles and new arrivals using the code HALFOFF. Note that all sales are final. See some of my favorite items below.

I’m a sucker for a great skirt. Although I tend to gravitate toward pencil skirts, if I see a fab A-line skirt, I find it hard to say no. That was the case with this blush pleated midi skirt. The fabric is a comfy stretch knit with a subtle chevron pattern. So cute! I opted to go ladylike with it, but I think it would look great with an edgy leather jacket too.
This skirt is my first purchase from Forever 21. I can’t believe I’ve never shopped there before, but I’m so glad I checked it out. The selection and prices are great.

Most days, I try to wear at least some color, but there are definitely days when I’m OK going with all neutrals or even all of one color. While wearing all black may seem a bit odd or like something that should be reserved for funerals, I think it can totally work as a chic, work-appropriate look. And wearing all black really lets these leopard print pumps be the star of this outfit.
