10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

You know I love to support other woman-owned small businesses, and this week I’m going to be keeping this post up to date with sales from my favorites so you won’t miss out on these limited-time offers. I’ve also included my top picks under each brand! Especially when shopping from small businesses, I encourage you to shop directly from them whenever possible — this means more of your money supports the brand directly and allows them to invest in their products, their team and their community.

That being said, I also want to make a quick note about this week of sales. This time of year it’s easy to feel a lot of pressure to buy, buy, buy, but I want to encourage you to take a deep breath and not let that pressure seep in. Yes, there are some amazing deals happening, but they’re not a great deal if they’re not something you know you’d happily welcome into your wardrobe and get a lot of use out of. So use this post as a guide to investing in some really incredible brands and quality products at a discount, but know that you don’t need any of it unless you actually are in the market for one of these products.

I’ll keep this post updated over the coming week, so bookmark it and check back for easy reference. Also, I’m happy to answer product, fit/sizing and styling questions in the comments section so don’t hesitate to ask!

ABBY ALLEY: “Perfectly imperfect” sling bags available at a discount. All sales final.

CLARE V: 20% off sitewide — no code needed!

  • Midi Sac (The most versatile bag — use it with a crossbody strap, a shoulder strap, a shortie strap, or no strap as a clutch. Or put it inside a larger tote to organize things!)
  • Moyen Messenger (A very practical and cool bag! I wear the cream one all the time.)
  • Grande Fanny (My favorite for hands-free days.)
  • Poche (Holds the essentials — phone, car key, a few cards, lip balm, and sunnies.)
  • Pot de Miel (My go-to all summer long.)
  • Turnlock Louis (On its way to me!)
  • Chou Chou (A cute alternative to a clutch)
  • Belle (The perfect clutch in a gorgeous, subtle checkerboard pattern)
  • Shortie Strap (I have the tortoise and am going to try the gold, too.)
  • Chain Straps (I have the thick one and the Box Chain one and they’re gorgeous — they dress up any bag with D-Rings)
  • Braided Shoulder Strap (I love the texture this adds to bags — works on any bag with D-Rings)
  • Checkered Crossbody Strap (Pairs especially well with a simple bag to add pattern to an outfit)
  • Ciao Collar (I use this as a bag strap — same size as the “Shortie” strap — on a black tote and love the vintage vibe it adds.)
  • Oscar Sweater (On its way to me!)
  • Oversized Sweatshirt (I have an old version of the Ciao black sweatshirt, and love the new green one as well!)

FREDA SALVADOR: 25% off almost everything — code CYBERFUN automatically applied at checkout and can be used as many times as you’d like! See something not included in the sale? If it’s your first purchase, you can use 15BORTON for 15% off.

HEIDI MERRICK: 25% off sitewide with code GIVETHANKS

  • Tia Dress (Love the shape)
  • Rosie Dress (Shown above & recently added to my wardrobe. Classic and cool and comfortable.)

JACLYN JAMES CO: Free gift with any $125+ purchase. Add your choice of artisanal sipping glasses to the cart and use code CHEERS23 at checkout.

JENNA BEE HANDMADE: 25% off everything with code HOLIDAY25

  • Cosmetic Bag (I have a checkered one and love it so much!!)
  • Sling Bag (Really large and holds more than you’d think! Great bag to bring with you on a walk.)

MERIT: 20% off sitewide, no code needed

    Hi Natalie! For the Na Nin Lena pants in silk herringbone, do you think cream or black will be more versatile?

  2. Kay says:

    Hi Natalie considering ordering the EDA Freda Salvador sneakers. I’m between an 81/2 and 9 typically a 9. Do they run small or big? Also, afraid of them flopping around on my foot. Do you have that problem? Thanks so so much

  3. Albiona says:

    How would you style the bubble skirt from Nan Nin? I live in Michigan, would you go with the Lean pant in silk canvas or the winnie?

  4. Rachel says:

    Thinking about a Clare V. fanny pack. Would you choose the larger Grande shape or smaller rectangle shape? I was thinking black. Thanks!

  5. Rebecca says:

    For the Na Nin Lena pant in cream, how would you decide between silk herringbone and silk canvas? I live in Los Angeles if that helps. Thanks!

  6. claudia says:

    Do you think the Esme silk blouse will be too big on a petite XS frame? Love but not sure if it would swallow me whole?!
