With Memorial Day weekend arriving, the summer sales have also kicked off. It is crazy the number of deals there are out there and so I pulled together some of my favorites below to help you update your summer wardrobe while enjoying the long holiday weekend.
When I worked at Nordstrom way back when, I developed a true appreciation for how certain designers made their clothes and the amount of time it takes to go from the design stage to holding an actual item but I have never really understood exactly what happened.
Last week I sat down with Courtney Kates the designer behind Maison Du Soir, a sleepwear line that I adore and have featured previously here on the blog, to chat about her design process. She patiently walked me through each step, from start to finish. It was incredibly fascinating. I had to share because I think we sometimes forget how hard designers work to create pieces that we love. Here is a little walk through the Maison Du Soir process…
What originally caught my eye when I first saw Maison Du Soir were the colors used and the beautiful silk selected. Courtney does an incredible job of bringing beautiful color combinations together. Can you imagine how fun it is to select from so many options?!
WAY BACK in September (feels like FOREVER ago right?) I mentioned how much I love my Everlane tees. And then I ordered more. And then more. And then I became an Everlane tee snob and refuse to wear anything else. They are hands down, my favorite tees.
Then the weather became increasingly warmer (if that is even possible, I mean, it has been summer since last Fall here) and I figured it was about time I tried out one of the Everlane tanks. If I loved the tees so much, the tanks can’t be half bad right? I placed an order for the Ryan tank and there it was again. Another favorite.
With a loose fit and extremely soft feel, the Ryan tank is the perfect summer essential. When I say essential, I mean that I probably wear mine way too much and people would like to see me in something different. I have thrown them over a bathing suit for the beach, paired with a skirt for dinner and with cut offs for a baseball game. They come in my uniform of colors (white, black, heather grey, navy and charcoal), making them a seamless addition to my wardrobe.
I could go on and on about these tanks but then it would just start to sound obnoxious so I will stop. I will simply close with, if you have thought about ordering from Everlane, the Ryan tank is the perfect way to be introduced to their pieces. You won’t be disappointed (and perhaps you should throw in a white v-neck too…just my suggestion). You can shop the entire Everlane collection here.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Birdaria site, I highly suggest perusing all their items here.
