As summer winds down and fall becomes more and more eminent, I’m taking a look back at my favorite summer outfits. Below I chose my favorite casual, elegant, and sexy looks from the past few months. This has definitely been a summer of great style, and now I feel like I can successfully move on to a new season.
With summer style put to bed on a good conscience, I’m ready to start shopping for fall clothes. There’s nothing better than a little back-to-school spree (whether you’re in school or not). This year I’m partnering with Raise.com to help you get ready for fall on a budget.
Raise is a website that lets you buy and sell gift cards at a discounted price. It works great both ways, so you can sell that Talbots gift card your great aunt gave you (because it’s just not time for sweater sets yet) and buy a TJ Maxx card instead. They have an incredible amount of companies and cards available, so you can also stock up on everything you need for the new season. I know I’m headed straight for the Barnes and Noble and Starbucks cards.
I’ve seen cards for sale at up to 90% off, so we’re basically talking free clothes here. They also have cards for places like Home Depot, and Redbox, as well as for restaurants and other venues. I’m not exactly strolling into Home Depot on a regular basis but it can save you some cash on a great gift. The only tricky part is choosing which cards to buy!
