If you have the money, I feel like Rag & Bone has reigned supreme for THE boot to have for several seasons now. (OK, the Rag & Bone Harrow bootie may tie with the Weitzman 5050 over-the-knee boot — both for the weekend only.) These Margot booties look just as nice to me as the Harrow — I love that flattering notch in the front of the boot, the architectural, chunky heel, and the fact that they’re on sale. At full price they’re $525, but as part of the Nordstrom sale they’re marked down to $349.90. Nice. Rag & Bone ‘Margot’ Bootie
These Ivanka Trump booties look amazing for wearing with all kinds of denim (skinny, boyfriend, even flare), as well as even with tights and skirts (for some reason I’m seeing short, flippy skirts and dresses, but that’s me). They’re only $109.90 during the sale, but they go back up to $168 after the sale ends; they’re available in gray and black in sizes 5-11. Ivanka Trump Taren Booties
This is totally boring… but kind of perfect. I love the sleek look to this simple V-necked t-shirt from Halogen. I like the steep V, the tuck detailing at the neck and shoulder, and the fact that it’s slightly longer in the back. I’ve ordered the black, but this burgundy is gorgeous, as is the teal and the gray. It’s $35.90 (will be $48 after the sale). Halogen® Tucked V-Neck Long Sleeve Top
(See all of our workwear picks from the sale here…pieces are already selling out, amazingly…)
Liberty of London prints are classics, and while they can be a bit girly/twee for me in a lot of their iterations, these ballet flats with just a few colorful details look perfect, either for the weekend or the workweek. They’re part of a big “pop-in” shop at Nordstrom, and are $200. London Sole Liberty Print Ballet Flat

As someone who logged many miles in my Reefs with arch support, I was intrigued to see readers singing the praises of the OluKai flip flops recently, as I hadn’t heard of the brand. They look great for that commute to or from work (with your heels either in your bag or at the office), or out and about with friends on the weekends. What are your favorite brands of “fancy” flip flops, ladies? These OluKai Unahi are $70 at Zappos. OluKai Unahi Sandals
Aiiiyeee. Love this dress. It feels classic and cool and gamine-like yet sophisticated. It’s $350 at Bergdorf Goodman. Aaaah, and it also comes in royal blue. I’m in love. Milly Open Bar Inset Flare Dress
Update: Three sales of note, ladies. First: Nordstrom seems to have a bit of a “summer clearance sale” going on — I’ve gotten numerous price drop alerts lately for things I recently bought, including this lovely scarf (now $48) — will try to do a roundup of anything noteworthy. Second: Anthropologie is having their big summer tag sale, with prices up to 50% off. Finally: Ferragamo is having a sale; flats are as low as $270, Vara pumps around $400, etc.
