Labor Day Weekend kicks off today, and my wish for you is two-fold: I hope today is not only the first day of your long weekend, but that it’s also pay day. I’m not saying that just because you’re going to need that direct deposit to fund your weekend of binge drinking spiked seltzers, but also because you’re going to need sufficient funds to take advantage of all the incredible Labor Day Weekend sales, most of which have already started. LDW is the last big weekend for summer sales, and there are some good ones you don’t want to miss out on. Here are the best Labor Day Weekend sales to blow your hard-earned paycheck on.
1. Urban Outfitters: Extra 40% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)
To celebrate this LDW, Urban Outfitters is doing an ADDITIONAL 40% off sale, which is amazing. You can get incredible pieces at even more incredible prices, like the above pair of light wash DL1961 jeans which are normally $199 and are now $65.99. That’s a deal you can’t argue with, especially for a high quality pair of super cute jeans. I mean, you’re basically saving money by buying them.
2. Reformation: Up To 70% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)
If you’re like me and are obsessed with Reformation, but don’t have the finances to support your obsession, I have good news. Reformation is having their summer sale right now, with their sale assortment all currently up to 70% off. You can definitely snag some great deals and, considering Reformation rarely ever has sales, I’d say go all in. The “add to cart” button just became your new best friend (and your wallet’s greatest enemy).
3. South Moon Under: Additional 50% Off Final Sale (No Code Necessary)
If you’re a proud member of #BachelorNation, then you know that Show Me Your MuMu is a go-to brand for many of the women of The Bachelor franchise. And, if you’ve ever looked up their stuff, then you know it’s not exactly easy on the wallet. But don’t get discouraged, because right now South Moon Under has a bunch of Show Me Your MuMu pieces on sale with an ADDITIONAL 50% off! Even if you’re not an aspiring #BachelorNation influencer, I guarantee you’ll love their clothes, plus all the other incredible pieces you can purchase at 50% off right now.
4. Anthropologie: Additional 50% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)
Another can’t-miss sale is Anthropologie’s holiday weekend sale, where they’re doing an additional 50% off sale prices. If you’re in need of workwear pieces, then now is definitely the time to shop. Of course, they have really great weekend-worthy pieces as well, and now with the sale you can actually afford this stuff instead of just choosing from what’s left in the sad, picked-over sale room.
5. Forever21: Additional 60% Off Sale (Code: ADD2CART)
For all the “babes on a budget” (aka my fellow broke-ass bitches), brace yourselves, because Forever 21 is doing an ADDITIONAL 60% off sale. Like, you can probably get 1,579 things for a total of $100 right now. Yes, that was an exaggeration and, realistically, you might only get one wear out of each piece. But then again, who the f*ck cares when your top only costs $5 anyway? Plus, in today’s Instagram-obsessed world, you tend to really only wear your clothes a few times, so it honestly works out fine.
Friendly reminder from yours truly that Labor Day Weekend sales are the last big holiday sale we have until Black Friday. That being said, please join me in doing the financially responsible thing of maxing out all my credit cards this weekend and then rebuilding my available balance so I can blow it all again come November.

Turtlenecks are probably the best parts of cold weather, apart from the fact that it’s now socially acceptable to never leave your apartment because it’s way too cold. To be clear, I don’t like the cold, but I do like any excuse to be the lazy piece of sh*t I am inside. But anyway, back to turtlenecks. I’m so glad these came back in style from the 90s when my mom would force me to wear them to school (and I would hate it because I felt like I was being choked all day). Thankfully, I have changed. Not only are turtlenecks cute to wear, but these shirts can do it all. They can help cover up a nasty pimple on your chin or a hickey (are people still giving each other hickies past the age of 16?), and they keep you warm without requiring a scarf.
The only downside to wearing a turtleneck is that sometimes it can make you look like Steve Jobs (shouts out to that episode of Vanderpump Rules where Stassi goes to the Hamptons). To steer you away from that mishap, here are a few great turtlenecks I found that are both cheap and stylish… that won’t make you look like an Apple exec. On second thought, maybe I do want to look like an Apple exec so people at work will take me seriously? Whatever, you know what I mean. These three turtlenecks are inexpensive, cute, and they’re perfect for the winter time.
With colder weather hitting us from all sides (and Thanksgiving being over), it’s officially time to transition your wardrobe to winter. I know, right? Fall lasted like, two days. Betcha wish you could go back in time to the summer when you couldn’t stop whining about how you couldn’t wait for it to be sweater weather. Right? Right, Jenna?? I’m just a little salty about the cold, don’t worry. In any case, one of the main things you’ll need to survive the winter will be a good jacket. And not just any jacket, a puffer jacket. These trendy marshmallow coats have been worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner, which means they will keep you warm and stylish all winter long. Thank god for small miracles. I’m not going to freeze my ass off for anyone or any trend this winter. It’s just too damn cold.
Unlike the bike shorts of this past summer, the puffer jacket trend is not going anywhere anytime soon, and THANK GOD. That means you can still buy one and justify your spending that much more. Tons of celebrities are killing it with their puffer jackets, matching them with any and all outfits, and you can too. I found copies of the best celeb puffer jackets that you can recreate this coming winter. But, obviously, I found them for way less—I know you don’t all have Kendall Jenner money, and with the holidays coming up, we all need to save where we can. So read on to find my favorite affordable puffer jackets.
