As a working mom I’ve talked a lot about how my life is all a balancing act. Some days I feel like I’ve got it all together and some days I feel like a total #hotmess. And while there is nothing better than good morning snuggles, I love to treat myself to a glass of wine and some retail therapy at night. Yes I know a dangerous mix, but again… motherhood is all a balancing act. So when I heard about Saks Designer Sale I poured myself an ice cold glass of rosé and settled in to search through all of my favorite designers with one mission: timeless staples.
The best part about the sale is that is includes a lot of designers that rarely go on sale….hello Tory Burch. I have a select few of designers that I love to “window shop” that for me are the epitome of classic style like Joie and See by Chloe. But when I decide to splurge on a designer piece I always want to make sure it passes the “ten year test”. Translation: Can I picture myself wearing this years later without saying, “What was I thinking?!” And as a self proclaimed jean queen which I justify on a cost per wear analysis, these are my go to denims brands that are worth a peak: AG, Mother, Paige and Frame.
I’ve style two outfits with pieces that fit all of the criteria above and linked my favorite timeless staples (most under $250) in the boutique below.

This outfit is more about everyday “elevated” style. Denim is the way to my heart and I’ve been dying to splurge on a pair of Mother jeans. The fit is just MWAH…. and it’s really all about the fabric. Mother is the cashmere of denim – the brand prides themselves on the technology they use to weave more fibers into the fabric which makes them totally worth the hype. I paired them with a timeless eyelet top (silk, lined, and beautifully made) and the perfect summer mule.

One thing that will most definitely never go out of style is a black dress. I love the tie shoulder detail and of course the super lux fabric. No surprise this dress is selling out fast so I linked a few other classic dresses on sale below as well. I dressed this down with a pair of flat sandals (so seriously comfy and effortlessly chic).
