Red Striped Sundress + Labor Day Weekend Sales!

     Happy Friday! Since moving to Virginia this year, I've switched my blog posting schedule from M-F (five days a week!!), to M-Th... which I think is still pretty good considering that I also work full-time. 😊 Stepping it back up to five posts just for this week though- I won't have a new post on Monday because of Labor Day, so you get a bonus one today. I'm excited to share a really cute dress that I wore last weekend while visiting Roanoke and Virginia's Blue Ridge region, and I also wanted to highlight a few LDW sales!

     This dress from Chicwish is so darling!! I wore it to dinner last weekend with my friend Cara (see where we ate in this blog post!). Since its primary color is red, you might still be able to get away with wearing a look like this into mid-late September. I do follow traditional fashion rules, and I'll be putting away my summer whites and very summery outfits after Monday, but with a look like this you might be able to keep wearing it for a few weeks if it's warm where you live. I typically order M in Chicwish clothing, which I did with this dress. It's just a little bit big on me in the chest area, but I think the S would have been too tiny, so I'm glad I did go with the M! 

     Who else is excited for the long weekend? THIS GIRL IS! Mainly because I finally get to go back to Charlotte to visit my friends there, but I'm also excited for other reasons. Labor Day always means that my birthday is right around the corner. This year LDW is early, so my birthday is actually closer to next weekend. But still- yay birthday month! I do love the fact that Labor Day Weekend sales coincide with the birthday coupons that I get sent for some of my favorite retailers. Here are a few notable sales for the weekend:
