I am always a fan of the little black dress, and this seriously marked down Susana Monaco dress looks perfect for most social outings. It was $246, but is now marked to $97 at Piperlime. Huzzah! Final sale only, alas. Susana Monaco V Drape Dress

So Piperlime is featuring designer Amanda Uprichard this week, and I am absolutely loving the bright, colorful dresses, full of feminine ruffles and the beautiful prints — I hope we see some more blouses from this designer for work. After some more research, I found this lovely dress on Bloomingdale’s for a better sale than I’ve seen elsewhere. Love the mixed print (floral and stripes!) as well as the ruffle and the see-through hem detail. Was $168, now $126 (sizes petite-L still available).

Lacoste and Catherine Malandrino are doing a collaboration this summer, and I love the look of this drape dress. It looks chic but breezy, perfect for summer parties. It’s already sold out in tornado blue, but it’s still available in brass yellow (pictured), black, white, and navy for $255 at Lacoste.com. Lacoste + Malandrino Drape Dress

Three cheers for long weekends! The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale continues, with discounts of up to 50% on tons of basics like jeans, lingerie, swim suits — as well as work clothes. For a lazy weekend, I like this romantic blouse from Joie — the colors and ruffles seem soft and romantic. It was $198, now marked to $118.90 as part of the sale.

Smocked Detail TeeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I like simple tees like this for the weekends — they’re a little bit different and a little bit feminine, but ultiimately really wearable with jeans or shorts or whatever. Ann Taylor Loft is having a sale on tops — buy one get 50% off, no code needed — which is always a great time to stock up. This one comes in 6 colors: taupe (pictured), navy, white, tea berry, flamingo pink, and “deep abyss,” a cornflower blue. It’s $29.50 at Loft. Smocked Detail Tee

P.S. I’ve been traveling and at a legal conference for much of this week (my last duty for my lawyer job) so no round-up of news stories this week — sorry! If you’ve seen anything interesting, please email it to me and I’ll try to do a round-up on Monday!
