Sale PSA: An easy lace up dress from Rag & Bone, now $150 (I’m highly tempted, I love a good simple white summer dress), classic navy Barbour waxed cotton jacket with corduroy trim, now 20% off, this striped Madewell dress (I own and love it, size down if you want more of a fitted look), now just under $39 with code AUTUMNUP, and great linen and cotton military green trousers from James Perse, now 40% off.
