Summer Style: Shopping the Memorial Day Sales

It’s supposed to rain all weekend in Boston and on the Cape. Bummer. We had planned to head to Truro for the first time since last fall. We still may go; there’s dead bug vacuuming to be done. However, like on all holiday weekends, there are sales galore. I may just be able to get some summer shopping accomplished online. I pulled together four sets of clothing and accessories I found. Everything shown is on sale. Not sure what to buy first. Oh, well actually I already picked up the stripey tote from Gap this week. What have you guys been buying for summer?

Shop Alert: Luna Leaves Newbury Street

Wow.  This is crazy.  Luna Boston closed its Newbury Street boutique on Monday.

A real loss, that is for sure.  There’s a showroom in Charlestown, and of course their excellent website, but still.

What if I want to buy a bag on a whim? Boo.

Just in: Owner Sarah tells me they’ll messenger Bostonians their bag of choice – same day service. Yay!

I want this one:

Rebecca Minkoff Linear Stud Darling, sale price $357
