Happy Hump Day…we’ve made it halfway to the weekend! And really, could the week be moving any slower?! Maybe it’s just the excitement and anticipation of next week’s Spring Break, but I’m ready for Friday now!

My inbox has been flooded with end-of-season sales, which has been perfect since we’re headed to the mountains next week. I know many of you are over sweaters, scarves, and cold-weather gear, but now’s the time to grab those pieces you’ve been coveting all season. There’s still time left to wear them, not to mention, I love pulling those fairly-new pieces out when Winter rolls around again next year…and knowing I scored them for a steal!

Here are some of the super-sale pieces I’ve had my eye on…

I tried, and loved, this long cardi in a previous Dressing Room Diaries, and love it even more now that’s it’s 40% off. There are four great colors, but sizes are going quickly.

Okay, so I already have this peacoat in two colors, and have worn the heck out of them both (see here and here)! And at $28, I just had to share it again. Remember to size up!

Another classic coat is the trench…never goes out of style, and always chic. It’s actually a great option for Spring and rainy season, too! This quality option is 33% off and has near-perfect reviews.

Ah, my beloved kitten-cardi…practically one of the coziest things I own, and what I reach for when comfort is key, but I still want to look stylish (see it here and here). So many great colors on sale, and this one is $20(Sidenote: I love the fleece ones, but not so much these fuzzy fleece. There’s definitely a difference in the material and thickness.)

This long cardi is a better option for shorter girls #me because it’s not as long as the one I showed at the top of the post. This one is already washed and ready for me to pack!

This cardi-jacket had me at fringe and color block!

Did someone say stripes?? Love this high-low pullover…already on sale, and now an extra 40% off!

I’ve lived in my favorite leggings all season (see them here and here), so I’m always on the look-out for tops and sweaters long enough to cover the lady bits.

There’s no question I have a particular look and style I always seem to gravitate towards, but I’ve recently started broadening that scope for the Dressing Room Diaries posts I do for you…and that’s how I discovered how much I like these layered-look sweaters! And this one is 75% off with free shipping!! #saywhat?

They may consider this shirt end-of-season, but I’m here to tell you you’ll wear the heck out of it all Spring and early Summer!

Same is true for this drapey cardigan…it’s very thin and a great layer over tanks and tees in the getting-warmer months. It just so happens to be up to 60% off now!?

You may recall I was on the parka-hunt…for both the coldest weekend in NYC history (maybe a slight exaggeration, but didn’t feel like it to this Texan!!), and next week’s ski trip. These were my favorites, and it didn’t hurt they are all deeply discounted.

This is the one I went with, and could not be happier!! I was toasty warm and dry, the fur hood was perfect for blocking the wind, and the storm cuffs kept my sleeves from ever creeping up. It’s also got enough shape to keep me from looking like the Abominable Snowman. (See it on me here.)

My go-to brand of activewear has a ton of great pieces on sale, and this one will be my base layer for skiing and other activities that require I be outdoors.

I was recently introduced to this brand of rain boots, and I’m completely smitten!! The price point is significantly better than Hunter, but they are also far more comfortable! Especially for walking all day…they have a lot of sole and traction, and aren’t as heavy. And don’t get me started on the patterns!

So let’s move on to some great clearance-priced boots…

Stretch Back Riding Boots

UGG Cardi Classic Knit Boot (30% off!!)

Suede Bootie

And who am I kidding….I can’t spend any time online without seeing all the fun New Arrivals…and these caught my eye for Spring.

And finally, I fell in love with flowy maxi dresses last year during our cruise (see one here), but had so few to choose from because most were just too long for me. Well no longer…because tons of them are now available in Petite sizing! These are my faves so far.

So pretty, right?? I’ve also been scouting sales for the kids and found this great fleece hoodie for Little Miss that’s 40% off, and water resistant (non-puffy!) jackets for our boy. What have you spied lately? I’d love to hear what you’ve got your eye on! Do you like shopping end-of-season sales, or have you moved on to Spring?

  5. I LOVE the Ugg Cardi Boots! I just got them for my bday and wear them all the time! It's taking all my willpower not to wear them to work 🙂 I already bought two of the fleece cardis after reading your post and it's taking all my willpower not to get another one.
    Agree with Sheaffer on the bow dress!

  7. I purchased the maxi at the end from Nordstroms around Christmas time and wore it for beach photos in Maui. I wish you could see how amazing it is – even better in real life!!!! A must have. I want it in the other colour!

  9. That black and pink maxi is killer! I love shopping the winter sales, but I'm also snagging things for spring before they sell out 🙂
