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.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Lightweight Cardigans

*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?*

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.

Old Navy Lightweight Cardigan - was $19.94, now $15.95-$9.60
with code FASHION

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.)

Insomniac Sale Picks: Plus Size Shorts

*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?*

Kristin requested a few picks for plus size shorts, so here we go:

lands end chino shorts

Land’s End 7″ Stretch Chino Short - was $45, now $22.50

Love this pair with my whole heart. Top-entry pockets, clean front design, and a length that’s not too revealing but also not Bermuda. I wish there were more color options besides this white - you can get the 7″ length in seersucker or floral prints – but at that price, they could be overdyed! Available in sizes 14W – 26W. Most of LE’s shorts are currently on sale, including regular, petite, and tall sizes.

nydj debby

NYDJ Debby Short - was $80, now $65.99

Still spendy even on sale, but NYDJ means quality so these will last forever, fit beautifully, and be incredibly comfortable. My denim shorts get the most wear of all my pairs, so I wanted to include a dark-wash option. These will look great with everything from graphic tees and flat sandals to blouses and heels. Available in 14W – 24W. Also in 0, 2, 4, 8, and 18 here.

lee bermudas

Lee Platinum Ventura Bermuda – was $64, now $40.99

With a 9.5″ inseam, this is a pretty short Bermuda, which is great, in my opinion. Lee is my go-to brand for shorts and I have several pairs that are very similar to these: High rise, straight fit, plain front, super versatile. Available in this khaki as well as black in sizes 14W – 22W. Size availability varies by color. Also in regular sizes 2 – 16 in blue, black, or dark coral.

st johns bay bermuda short
St. John’s Bay Bermuda
 - was $34, now $19.99

A true Bermuda with an 11.5″ inseam, these are great for those who prefer a more modest short but could also be cuffed or hemmed to a shorter length. These have a slimming panel built in – which some folks love and others loathe. Available in this cobalt as well as tan, brown, and black in sizes 16W – 24W. St. John’s Bay offers this style in regular, petite, and tall sizes, too.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for plus size shorts:

  1. eBay – Mostly used, of course, but with over 23,000 options you’re bound to find a pair or two that appeal. (Narrow the search by size, color, material, and other criteria in the left rail.)
  2. Land’s End – All but two of LE’s plus shorts are now on sale. Selection includes knits and wovens, and a couple of petite plus options, too.
  3. Lee – My only shorts are Lee and I love their plus offerings like this classic denim pair. Kohl’s has some Lee options, too.
  4. JC Penney - Everything from shorter lengths to Bermudas. Love this simple twill pair.
