Happy Labor Day Weekend! This weekend marks the “unofficial” end of summer and the beginning of fall! Y’all know summer is my very favorite season, but I must say that the idea of all the fun fall brings has me pretty excited! Bring on the football, family time, and pumpkin everything! The day after Labor Day, you’d better believe I’ll be bringing out all the fall decor in a big way! (Need a little help creating your fall display? I shared so many cute new finds in THIS post!)

Our Labor Day Weekend Plans

Ellie Nap Dress – Emerald Gingham | Pearl Embellished Sandals | Pearl Drop Earrings | Pearl Initial Pendant Necklace | Pearl Apple Watch Band | BU Baylor Flag
(BTW, this dress is precious, but it is not my gameday 🏈look! Check out my Instagram on Saturday to see what I’m wearing! And for more gameday outfit ideas for your school, check out THIS post.)

Do you have special plans this weekend? We’re heading down to Waco for the first Baylor 🏈 game of the season, and we’re so excited! You know we’re big college football fans! Is your team playing this weekend?

Another thing I’m going to be doing this weekend is shopping! As I shared with you in last weekend’s post, so many brands are reporting a surplus in inventory, and they’re desperately trying to move merchandise. That means the deals are good! Not only can you find bargains on wear now and summer items, but in the case of many brands, they’ve also put fall items on sale too!

Suzy’s Pro Tip: Look for the brands offering sitewide discounts! That’s code for new arrivals on sale, and it also probably means they’ve taken an additional discount on already reduced merchandise! Talbots is a great example they’re offering 25% sitewide + 70% off markdowns (final sale). The sale goes through Monday, 9/5.
