Happy Friday! Are you ready for a long weekend? Of course if you’re retired a long weekend may not mean much to you. But we do have some great sales going on this weekend. So today I’m sharing four things in my closet that haven’t been on sale, but now are. And I’m giving you a rundown of some great Labor Day weekend sales I found that are worth shopping. And I’m sharing what’s in my cart. (Actually I’ve already pulled the trigger on a few of them because I think they’re going to go fast!)
I have a Labor Day question for you at the end of the post, so be sure to read all the way through. I’d love for you to participate in my question.

4 Things in My Closet On Sale Now
I perused my How I Really Dressed for My Day posts looking for items that I’ve really enjoyed a lot this summer that are now on sale for the weekend. And I found some winners!
It’s disappointed me all summer that these Caslon items haven’t been marked down. But this weekend both the Caslon Shirttail Dress and the Platform Flip Flops are 40% off. And the best news? They’re both still well stocked and available in other colors.
By the way, those Veronica Hoop Earrings I’m wearing above (and almost every day!) are also on sale at Kendra Scott. You’ll get 20% off everything at Kendra Scott, but if you sign up for texts from them you can even get 25% off everything.
Everlane Parklet Shirtdress (in blue houndstooth)
You know I have worn my black Everlane Parklet Dress like crazy this summer. I’ve even spared you from the past few weeks OOTDs because I’ve just been wearing so many repeats, but I’ve worn this great shirtdress even more than ever. Unfortunately the black dress is still not on sale. But I was so surprised to discover that they’d actually restocked the Parklet Shirtdress in the blue houndstooth.
So just to be clear, the black Everlane Parklet Shirtdress is still full price, but it is stocked in most sizes. I love, love, love this easy to wear dress. And I’ve ordered the Everlane Parklet Shirtdress in blue houndstooth just this morning. This dress has already sold out once this summer. I expect it to go fast. And the price will also eventually go back up if it doesn’t sell out. I have the size 8.
I so wish that the Women’s Vista Trekking Shorts were also discounted. But, alas, they are not. However, the Beach Cruiser Summer Shirt is still available (in limited size choices) in all three color options. It runs true to size; I’m wearing a medium. This shirt is silky soft, breathable, moisture-wicking, and quick drying. It has lovely buttons and a nice amount of stretch for easy movement.
I am beyond tickled that my Peak Lapel Boyfriend Blazer is 40% off this weekend. Wowsa! This jacket has not been on sale at all since I purchased it (that I know of). I keep an eye on the listing at Express because so many of my readers have asked about it. It actually sold out in this color last spring, but they must have restocked it for the fall.
The Peak Lapel Boyfriend Blazer runs true to size; I’m wearing a medium. It is nicely lined, has a great drape and is a nice longer length without being completely oversized. The jacket also comes in ivory, cabernet and blush mauve. But this pecan shade (which definitely reads like a true neutral toned camel) will sell out fast. If you’re at all interested in this jacket, snag it. There will not be a better price.
Oooh! And I just noticed that my cap toe slingbacks have also been restocked at Express and are marked down to just $30. These are great little shoes. Not high quality, but great for the price.

What’s in My Shopping Cart (or in the mail already!)
Now remember, I show clothes for a living. Ha! I won’t keep all of these things. And some of them are even gifts for a certain birthday girl. Shh! Oh, and some of these items are not currently discounted. But many are.
Thanks so much for dropping in for the scoop on the Labor Day weekend sales. I hope you have a great weekend. I may or may not have a new post up Monday, depending on how the weekend goes. I have company coming in starting Sunday. And I want to work ahead a little to prepare for next week.
But I hope you have a lovely weekend. You can check in here again if you decide to do any shopping through the weekend. I’ll be updating this post as the weekend progresses. I’ll probably add some shopping widgets under a few of those store listings above.

Blessed for My Day
Some days work is such a grind. Even when you do something you love like I do, work takes a toll. And of course, there’s not just our chosen profession to consider. We also have to work at keeping our homes, cars, yards and bodies maintained. And then there’s volunteer work we want to offer up to our communities, country or church.
That’s why it’s so important to keep work in the right perspective. When I remember that work was originally meant to be a blessing, I can embrace it with new vigor. And when I submit my work to the Lord and ask Him to infuse it with His anointing, I can enjoy it more. Let’s take some time this weekend to refocus our thoughts on work. And let’s ask God to give us the energy and passion for our work that will help us do it well.
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. ~ Genesis 2:15
