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

Beam of Light DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m liking this “Beam of Light” dress from ModCloth for weekend/evening wear. I would wear it now in the winter (out to a nice dinner with the hubs, perhaps) with a black boyfriend cardigan and colorful, jewel-toned tights. In the summer (for an evening cocktail party?), I’d pair it with statement jewelry like a long, opera-length necklace and some nude-for-me heels, perhaps with a bright clutch for a pop of color. It’s $147.99 at Modcloth. Beam of Light Dress

Kate Spade Get SandalsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Piperlime has one of the best collections of “blush”-colored shoes that I’ve seen in a while (although it is a bit heavy on the shooties — really, who wears blush shooties?). In any event — I am drooling over this pair of Kate Spade sandals. They will probably be a bit too much of a sandal to qualify as “work appropriate” at most conservative offices, but they look absolutely perfect for the weekend. Love the platform, love the straps, love the color. They’re $325 at Piperlime. Kate Spade Get Sandals
