Enjoying Columbus Day weekend a little bit longer…

Ann Taylor is among several stores with extended Columbus Day weekend sales in the USA.

Thank you everyone for all of your continued well-wishes and prayers! My Dad is fighting back against all odds and we couldn’t be more pleased, but is still heavily sedated and in the ICU. I’m not checking emails or comments regularly, but please know I am reading them and they are very much helping to keep me strong. Thank you.

Columbus Day weekend is a shopping haven of sorts, especially for those of us that love fall clothing! Several stores have extended their weekend promos (or kicked off new ones) that allow this discount weekend to extend ever longer.

A few of my favorite basics/casual stores are having amazing deals today. Among them, Ann Taylor is offering 50% off your purchase + free shipping with the code SHOP50, an offer that’s pretty hard to beat. Ann Taylor isn’t one of my go-to stores the way it used to be but I’ve had luck finding a couple of key closet pieces there this Fall. My favorite purchase so far is the Light Wool Blend Topper ($198 + 50% off), a cocoon coat that works best on taller bodies. It looks great with a pair of jeans and a turtleneck underneath, like the Turtleneck Tunic ($90 + 50% off), I also wear the coat over the Ponte Seamed Sheath Dress ($120 + 50% off), a surprise work win.

Another Ann Taylor winner for me is the Autumn Wrap Floral Dress ($98 + 50% off), which a fantastic wrap dress option for under $100 — and much less than that right now! I also really like the Silk V-Neck Shell ($90 + 50% off) which has a beautiful work-or-play-friendly neckline.

That’s just one deal though. Ready to add some classics to your closet? Inside, some of the other great deals and what I’d get…

This comfy, soft Banana Republic sweatercoat does work and play.

Banana Republic is another store offering a great deal — take 40% off select items, and take an extra 50% off sale. My favorite picks in this sale, aside from the sweatercoat above, are all dresses: the Lightweight Wool Fit-and-Flare Dress (now $97 + 40% off), the Pleated Lace Dress (now $97 + 40% off) and the Floral Tie-Neck Dress (now $110 + an extra 50% off).

Of course you’ll need shoes with those looks, and I recommend heading over to J.Crew which is offering 30% off select items with the code YESPLEASE. Pairs I love include the Dulcie Suede Kitten Heels ($180-$190 + 30% off), the Colette Suede D’Orsay Pumps ($248 + 30% off) and the especially yummy Gemma Leopard Flats ($108 + 30% off).

Shopbop’s doing one of their great promos right now — you can get 20% off orders of to $500 and 30% off orders over $500 with the code MAINEVENT16. It’s promos like these that lean me towards designer purchases I’ve been wanting, like the Loeffler Randall Large Industry Hobo Bag ($550 + 30% off), the J Brand Maria High Rise Leather Pants ($998 + 30% off) — or in photo-ready denim ($189 + 20% off), dove grey denim ($230 + 20% off) or medium denim ($218 + 20% off) or a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, like the 5050 Stretch Suede Boots ($655 + 30% off), Midland Over the Knee Boots ($798 + 30% off), Lowland Over the Knee Boots ($798 + 30% off) or Reserve Stretch Suede Boots ($655 + 30% off).

Here are some quick shots on other deals today:
