I can't believe it's already Memorial Day weekend! Since the weather was so depressing here for basically a full month, I'm feeling a little bit like we missed spring. But ya know what? The amazing sales happening this weekend are making me forget all about it. As always, my favorite finds from the week are below and I've also added in an extra list of places you should be checking out for the best deals this weekend. Happy shopping and happy (unofficial) start of summer!
-This lace top is so unique and pretty, it might have to be a Memorial Day weekend splurge ;)
-Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale just started and it's gooooood. I'll be rounding up more of my picks next week, but for now this off the shoulder top (of course), these sandals and this striped chambray shirt are already in my cart.
-A basic tank is a must for summer and this one is only $10. It's lightweight and loose without being too oversized.
-This tasseled crossbody would be a bit of an investment, but it's seriously the perfect white bag! I also love this one and it's a fraction of the price.
-I had originally ordered the black pair of these gladiator sandals, but ended up swapping them out for the cognac ones. I found them for way cheaper here and they're available in a bunch of colors!
-This dress is one of my favorite cheap thrills of the moment and now that it looks like the warm weather is here to stay I can't wait to wear it!
-The perfect casual off the shoulder dress for only $25 (plus an extra 20% off with code HISUMMER). Done and done!
-Target does it again, this time with a gold pineapple candle. You know you need one.
-These Chuck Taylors are another great all-white sneaker option. And we already know how comfy Converse are!
-Topshop jeans are my absolute favorite and this new pair is next on my list!

Dress (less than $40!) | Sandals (also in tan) | Emma Work Bag c/o Jemma | Necklace | Sunglasses | Bracelet c/o The Peach Box (use code "allycog" for 15% off!)
Raise your hand if you carry more stuff with you to and from work (or wherever) on a daily basis than any normal human should? Both of mine are up, for sure. And while I try to keep things as simple as I can by buying smaller crossbodies, some days I just need a bag that's going to hold everything and then some.
Enter: the Emma Work Bag by Jemma. This bad boy is easily the most spacious handbag I own and when I say it fits everything, I mean it fits ev-uh-ry-thing. I easily had all of my daily necessities (wallet, keys, 36 different lipglosses and lipsticks) plus a laptop, a pair of flats and my camera all snugly packed into this bag with room to spare and, unless you picked it up to see how much it weighed, you'd never know I basically had my life in it. It's super spacious, has a ton of compartments for organizational purposes and not to mention it's just gorg. It gets bonus #momlife points from me as well because it's great for toting around snacks, books, toys and all things toddler while running errands ;) Basically, everyone wins.
On another note, it finally stopped raining in D.C. long enough to wear all the cute springs pieces I've purchased -- including this dress. It's been hanging in my closet for weeks while I kept my jeans, sweaters and rain boots on rotation. But now that we're out of whatever weather funk we were in (and hopefully stay out of it), I couldn't wait to wear it!

-I ended up ordering the cognac and cream versions of this bag that I mentioned last week. I keep telling myself that I'll choose my favorite when they arrive, but I'm not sure how that'll go ;)
-These are the perfect summer sandals. They come in four colors and are currently only $10. Yes, please!
-Along with little white dresses, I'm also loving little white lace blouses right now. This one and this one are my current favorites!
-Banana Republic just launched a huge sale -- 40% off everything until May 30! It's definitely the time to stock up and I have my eye on this eyelet dress, this gorgeous lace top and this bright bag.
-This set of metal baskets with wood lids is absolutely adorable! They'd definitely be an investment given the higher price tag, but they're just so cute!
-Might as well add this to the list of belts I'm obsessed with. I love the concho medallions!
-I love pieces with tropical vibes during the summer and this off the shoulder top is no exception. The colors are like a sunset on the beach.
-I'm still into grommet details, especially when they give character to a wardrobe staple like these flat sandals.
-This pair of mirrored sunglasses looks just like a $400 version that's been on my wish list for a while and at 1/4 of the price, I'm thinking I might have to snag them.
-If you're looking for a pair of super distressed jeans, these are a great option.
