Insomniac Sale Picks: Pull-on Summer Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Laura requested a few picks for casual, pull-on summer skirts, so here we go:

lands end sport knit skirt

Land’s End Sport Knit Skirt - was $35, now $14.97 (select colors)

As always, Land’s End wins for size diversity: This comfy pull-on knit skirt comes in six colors in regular, plus, petite, and tall sizes. The regular sizes are 27″ long which will be below the knee for many, but it would be a cinch to hem if that’s longer than you’d like. Available in this pink, cobalt blue, and eggplant on sale and  charcoal, navy, and black at full price. White is available in petite, tall, and plus sizes. Size availability varies by color.

life is good skirt

Life is Good Scout Skirt - was $52, now $36.99

If you prefer something shorter and sportier, this little nylon knit skirt is a great option. Machine washable, of course, and would pair perfectly with a cheeky graphic tee or Available in sizes XS – XXL (equivalent to size 20). This skirt lacks the pockets and drawstring, but is a similar cut and shape and available in petite, tall, and plus sizes.

cn7761269

Gap Tulip Skirt - was $49.95, now $29.99 (select colors)

I adore the shape of this skirt: Breezy and light, but covered and comfy. Plus pockets! Would work equally well at the beach, playground with the kiddos, or a casual night out. Available in this navy and black as well as royal blue at full price in sizes XS – XXL. Including some petite and tall sizes. Size availability varies by color. This similar skirt is available in sizes 0X – 3X.

allen allen tiered skirt

Allen Allen Slub Tiered Skirt - was $58, now $16.99

Still a great casual option, but fun and eye-catching. I could see this with a floral button-front and cowboy boots as well as simple knit tops and sandals. Available in this gray as well as black and oatmeal heather in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar skirt is available in sizes 1X – 3X.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for casual, pull-on summer skirts:

  1. Land’s End - As evidenced above! Lots of durable, versatile pull-on options.
  2. Athleta – Most of the upscale athleticwear brands will offer some pull-on skirts. Love this jersey high-low one from Athleta.
  3. Old Navy - Some are mighty short, but longer options are available like this fold-over skirt in five colors.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! A great resource since most mall brands are zip-up. I’ve got several cute pull-on, elasticized skirts that I’ve thrifted over the years. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)

Insomniac Sale Picks: Non-black Flats

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Erin requested a few picks for work-appropriate flats that aren’t black, so here we go:

born stowaway II flat

Born Stowaway II - was $129.95, now $84.90

My bronze flats are a go-to, especially during the summer, and this pair has a similar look and color. Metallic flats are a great neutral alternative to black, although you’ll want to go with a nice muted metallic like this. These also come in a lovely light gold textured metallic. Available in US sizes 6 -11. Also over on Zappos in the two metallics, black, and two snakeskin prints. Size availability varies by color. (I also own and love these Earth flats in the distressed pewter, which is MUCH less shiny in person. More of a subtly sparkly charcoal gray.)

clarks concert choir

Clarks Concert Choir - was $135, now $74.99

They’re navy, I SWEAR! And I wanted to include these because I own and adore them, and because they’re available in widths. They’re comfy and supportive as all get-out. These guys are dressy enough for office or evening, but also work great with flippy sundresses on the weekend. Available in this navy, metallic brown, black leather, and black patent in US sizes 5 – 12, including some wide and narrow widths. Size availability varies by color.

fitzwell avery

Fitzwell Avery - was $59, now $26.99

Bargain! And they’re real leather. That sweep detail across the toebox looks a little odd from this angle but great from above which is where everyone will be seeing them anyway. And they’ve got a built-in gel comfort heel pad. Available in this red, navy, camel, and black in US sizes 6 – 13, including some wide and extra wide sizes. Size availability varies by color. (By the way, if you’re looking for vegan options, Nine West has loads of colorful flats in manmade materials.)

miz mooz bindi flat

Miz Mooz Bindi - was $89.95, now $64.90

Miz Mooz shoes are comfortable and sturdy, and this elegant pointed-toe flat will undoubtedly be no exception. A bright blue flat in embellished patent might be more quirky than dressy, but these could be paired with any print that includes cobalt and look sleek and chic and perfectly office-appropriate. And they come in loads of other colors, too! Available in this blue, red, cognac, and light gold in US sizes 6 – 10. Size availability varies by color. Also over on Zappos in mint green, black, orange, and turquoise.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for work-appropriate flats that aren’t black:

  1. Born - Between the Julianne and the Stowaway, you’ve got more than a dozen non-black, office-friendly options.
  2. Frye - They won’t be cheap, but they will be quality. And colorful! Check Nordstrom and 6pm, too, for styles like the Carson and Regina.
  3. Nine West - Some fun colors, but mostly a great source for non-black neutrals including cognac and animal print.

Mayre requested a few picks for lightweight cardigans, so here we go:

 LOFT V-neck Cotton Cardigan – was $49.50, now $20

You all know that V-neck cardigans are my faves, so I was thrilled to find this one. It’s 100% cotton so breathable and washable, and all of the rave reviews say it’s lightweight and perfect for summer wear. Available in this teal as well as white, peach, red, black, navy, and orange in sizes XXS – XXL, including some petite sizes.

Another great V-neck with lightweight right in the product name! Also gets rave reviews pretty much across the board. Available in this heather pink as well as heather blue, coral, white, heather gray, black, French navy, cobalt, and ivory in sizes XS – XXL, including some petite and tall sizes. Size availability and price vary by color. This V-neck cardigan longer but otherwise similar and available in sizes 0x – 3X in five colors.

ribbed waterfall cardigan

Open Front Ribbed Knit Cardigan - was $49, now $35.99
with code DEALS

For a longer, more open look try this sheer rib-knit waterfall cardigan. Less formal and preppy than the V-necks, but still elegant and ageless. Available in this oatmeal as well as teal, navy, black, and white in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also love this draped asymmetric cardigan. This similar style is available in sizes 1X – 3X in three colors.

Ann Taylor Linen V-neck Cardigan – was $69, now $29.99
Extra 50% off taken in cart

Linen wovens wrinkle, but linen knits are a little less wrinkle-prone and wonderfully breathable. This longer-length cardigan will pair beautifully with slacks and jeans. Available in this white as well as navy, peach, taupe, teal, and olive in sizes XXS – XXL, including some petite sizes. Size availability varies by color. This linen drape cardi is available in sizes 0X – 3X.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for lightweight cardigans:

  1. Old Navy – Nothing but sheers and short sleeves right now. This longer length cardi looks wonderfully summery.
  2. Anthropologie - Lots of linen and airy knits. Love this back detail drape-front cardigan and this crochet shrug.
  3. LOFT - Mainly lightweight knits, including this mesh stitch cardi.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Some of the secondhand shops will be rolling out fall items soon, but you can still snag some summer bargains. Cruise through long-sleeved tops if “sweaters” aren’t in their own section yet. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
