It’s beautiful tropical days like these that make me question why I live in such an unpredictable climate like in NYC. Flash floods and monsoon-like weather? No thank you.

The one thing I am looking forward to when I get back is the Barney’s biannual Warehouse Sale! (You thought I was going to say the forecast of 10 days straight of rain?). If you’re lucky enough to be in town during those dates, I’m telling you, it’s worth waiting on the block long lines to get in. I’ve scored some of my favorite wardrobe staples from there (3.1 Phillip Lim denim jacket, Lanvin & Acne Jeans dress, Marc Jacobs boots…).

If you can’t make it, you MUST check out my fav store at the moment, ALLSAINTS, which is having a maaaajor sale right now (up to 70% off). Just a warning, it took me 30 minutes to figure out how literally wear this dress when it first arrived! (I suspect it can be worn multiple ways).

If you do scour the end of summer sales going on, make sure you don’t get suckered into buying trendy pieces that may not work for next summer and look for items that can transition into fall (or Noah’s Ark like rainfall).
