Depending on where you live in the country, chances are the weather has you in a deliriously good mood this week -- after a long few months of blizzards, monsoons and whipping winds, it's finally sunny and light and almost spring.
And it's finally time to start shopping for warmer weather. A great jumping off point? Ann Taylor's fashion-forward selection of airy, versatile, high-quality blouses. The store is currently unbeatable for shapely silhouettes in perfect neutrals and with eye-catching details.
The best part about it? This weekend, all full-price items at AnnTaylor.com are 25% if you buy two, 40% off if you buy three or more (with the code ANNSTYLE at checkout). I can tell inventories are already flying out the door, so log on as soon as your boss isn't looking and click your way to spring wardrobe bliss. A few scenarios:
Score three great tops for a steal
I'm honestly in love with all three of these shirts. There's the cut-in ruffle shell -- its divinely draped neck is effortlessly glamorous, meaning you don't have to bother with a bunch of accessories. Then there's the shimmering ruched top, universally flattering and rendered in three lovely hues (I love the peach color -- and I don't say that too often, but it's perfect). Finally, the piece that I promise you'll wear forever -- the silk T-shirt, usually the property of higher-end designers, makes a welcome appearance at an accessible store. Total: $98.40 before shipping, $109.35 after.
One gorgeous top, two fun add-ons
Some of AT's tops can run you over $100. So if you've got your eye on one of the luscious ones at the higher end of the price range, no problem -- go ahead and put it in your cart, and then browse AT's generous selection of bottoms, accessories and jewelry to find some coordinating elements.
One suggestion: pair the delightful silk contrast button top with cropped black chinos and this double-strand pearl bracelet finished with a lilac bow. Total: $104.40 before shipping, $115.35 after.
Take the 25% off and fly solo
OK, I know I went over with those last two, so I'll try to compensate with this one. If you're just hankering for one great blouse, pick one that would be normally out of your price range -- then choose a little full-price item so that you can get the 25% off both. For instance: treat yourself to this silk petal top and a lacy bralette for $87 before shipping, $97.95 after.
