You know fall is nearing when summer sales top the 50% off mark. It's a bittersweet time of the year when you can stock up on summer seersucker for a great price, but soon temperatures will be dropping and vacations will be ending. But, if like me, you prefer to look on the bright side, then your closet can also become just a little brighter with these preppy summer staples (I confess to have stocked up on a few, myself).
Seersucker: Brooks Brothers Skirt | J. Crew Dress | Sperry for J. Crew Boat Shoes | J. Crew Swimsuit
Nautical: Tommy Hilfiger Striped Shirt | Brooks Brothers Silk Scarf | Brooks Brothers Knot Link Bracelet | Brooks Brothers Espadrilles | Sperry for J. Crew Boat Shoes
Even better, J. Crew currently has free shipping (even to Canada) if you spend over $100, and if you order in-store through Brooks Brothers, they will also wave any shipping and duty costs (such a relief for us Canadians). If you're in Toronto, pop by the Flatiron store on Bloor and St. George for 50% off all of their summer items. You can stock up on crisp gingham or striped collared shirts for under $50. And by the time you add up all of the extra 40% off at J. Crew, or extra 50% off at Tommy Hilfiger, you're seriously getting more bang for your buck.
Here's hoping the late spring means a longer summer, so these staples can stay out just a little longer.
