Tibi Pleated silk dressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Lately, I am in love with the bright colors and fun prints of the brand Tibi. As spring approaches, I’m loving this sunshine yellow silk dress — with intriguing pleat details down the front — for a weekend cocktail party, brunch, shopping date, et cetera. I’d wear flat sandals and carry a big bag for a more casual vibe, and switch to a heel and a clutch for something more dressed up. Was $330, now $165 at The Outnet (where they have a number of Tibi pieces, all in lucky sizes only). Tibi Pleated silk dress

Samira Bis Wrap Dress in Tropical MazeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Love love love this dress from Diane von Furstenberg.  Love the chill maxi length paired with the sharp look of the collar and cuffs.  The pattern is beautiful, too.  But where does one wear a sharp-looking maxi dress — to a business meeting on the beach?  Still, a girl can dream.  The dress is marked down from $695, at dvf.com — it’s now $486.50. Nice.  Samira Bis Wrap Dress in Tropical Maze

Free PeopleSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Every year, come spring, I want a white bohemian-inspired blouse. And I’m really liking this one from Free People — it’s reasonably priced, and I love the slub knit, the seam on the arms, and the drawstring sleeves.  It’s $78 at ShopBop in white (but note that Zappos also has it in sea-green and navy, marked down to $60.)

Frye – Dannika Campus (Black) – FootwearSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Zappos seems to have a number of sales on Frye boots right now, for some reason. Case in point: this simple, classic pair of tall black boots (also available, for full price, in brown). Whether tall boots are appropriate in your workplace or not, they are a staple of most women’s closets — and Frye boots are renowned for their comfort. These were $348, now marked to $208.80 at Zappos. Frye – Dannika Campus (Black) – Footwear

Asics ShortsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I don’t know about you, but I haaaate paying full price for work-out clothes. Fortunately, 6pm has a ton of it on sale today. Lots of it is lucky sizes only, but it’s still a great sale worth checking out — lots of items are up to 75% off. I like these simple, colorful shorts from ASICS – a bright color (or a funny t-shirt or the like) always makes a workout just that little bit more appealing.  These are marked to $15 (were $38) at 6pm.

Three Dots – Cotton Knits Cap Sleeve Scoop Neck Dress (African Violet)Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

6pm has some great deals on casual clothes this weekend, including this simple dress from Three Dots. Honestly, this is the kind of thing I live in on hot weekends and on vacations — it’s versatile (swap flip flops for heels and a swanky necklace and you can go to a nice restaurant), easily washable/packable, and just incredibly comfortable. This dress is 70% off — was $72, now $21.60 at 6pm (available in purple, black, and a tomato red).  Three Dots – Cotton Knits Cap Sleeve Scoop Neck Dress (African Violet) – Apparel
