What Would You Like to See in August?

What Would You Like to See in August?

Hi Friends!

In the best of circumstances, by the end of July, I feel like I’ve covered summer style, am ready for fall, and struggle with what-the-heck-to post.

This year, with the added layer of COVID, the varying levels of state restrictions, and low retail inventory, it’s even more challenging to create valuable posts for you.

I never want to take advantage of your inbox, so, as I finalize our August schedule,  I’m checking in to see what would be most helpful in the next few weeks during this lull before the start of Fall. 

My Best Tips for Shopping Online

I plan on wrapping up July with a fun roundup of affordable and pretty pajamas (tomorrow), and some more recent Amazon finds. 

The Nordstrom Sale starts on August 13th, I’ll have a variety of posts organized highlighting recommendations for replenishing basics, some wardrobe builders, a traditional must have list of fall pieces, and a post on pieces for those of us starting the fall working from home and homeschooling – insert sobbing emoji :(. 

We’ll start our Free Fall Wardrobe Challenge on Friday, September 4th. Like years past, I’ve added more to it, so if it’s your first or fifth time going through the process you’ll have many take aways. 

There are lots of helpful posts to look forward to as we get into the new season. 

So for the next few weeks, what is on your mind?

What are your most immediate style/beauty questions, or challenges? 

What posts do you find most helpful? 

What would you like to see more of?

I guarantee if you have a question, thousands of other women do too. 

Add your comment below and thank you. All of your thoughts and questions really do fuel the content you see here. 

XX,

Meg

What would you recommend to buy now at enf of the season sales that could work next year. I agree with everyone who said how to transition into fall. How to know what colors flayter you and which ones don't. Then maybe where you can find them off season. I hardly buy clothes in the fall and winter because I don't look good in warm colors or pastels but it's really hard to find cool color clothes in the fall and winter. Thank you for all the research, time, and effort you spend. I know it's not easy with 3 kids, especially when one of them is a toddler.

I wouldn't be opposed to a "wishful thinking" post, that is, IF/WHEN things return to "normal", what would you wear to a nice restaurant? An outdoor BBQ? A fall apple picking hayride? A winter wedding? Sometimes things that keep us sane are not just practical ways to get through, but dreaming/thinking/planning ahead for a "better time."

Love this blog! I've only been on since March but in a few short months have really appreciated the tips, suggestions, etc. It's made online shopping a much better experience. Thank you Megan!

I would love a post on how to wear boyfriend jeans. All seasons. I just bought a pair. Now I’m not sure what to do.

As another mentioned, please address other choices in neutrals. I love the crispness of black and white but it isn't flattering to me. I too have a the challenge of a new post menopause shape. I would like to see some information on choosing colors, and what type to use- soft, bright etc. Thank you for all of your hard work. We appreciate it!
