What to Buy at Labor Day Sales (& a link up!)

What to Buy at Labor Day Sales 2016

I have a little secret.  I buy most of my Fall clothing at end of summer sales.  I very rarely buy clothes in season (i.e. pay full price like a sucker).  Many of the Labor Day sales include items that came out as part of this new invented season of pre-Fall and items that just transition nicely into Fall and Winter.  So, here's a list of items that I intend to snag cheap this weekend!

1. Cardigans.  Somehow sweaters always make it into summer collections.  Maybe it's the proliferation of male-controlled office air conditioners that has led to the cardigan becoming a summer style staple?  I'll be snagging a few of these $20 cardigans at J. Crew Factory this weekend.
2. Denim.  Jeans have no season.  Get them while they're cheap.  These Madewell jeans are almost 50% off!
3. Pencil Skirts.  Pencil skirts are timeless and season-less.  I think I might add a green one to my collection.
4. Boho-Style Items.  Boho-style was everywhere this summer.  However, I've always thought the boho look wa sa little more conducive to Fall.  I think it's the color scheme.  Free People dresses are especially great for Fall if you just add some leggings and booties.
5. Work Dresses.   I tend to stock up on work dresses, which tend to be in the suiting section of the store, at the end of the summer.  A black dress is a black dress no matter what time of year you purchase it!  
6. Neutral Shoes.  A pair of black pumps always makes it's way into a Labor Day sale.  Take advantage.
