Today's Everyday Fashion: Macy's VIP Sale

Cobalt shirtdress with Vince Camuto booties
Leather sleeve trench with cobalt dress
Alfani cobalt shirtdress on sale

I'm not very skilled at finding deals at department stores. It seems like whenever I do find a coupon, it excludes the brand I'm hoping to buy and I wind up frustrated! That's why I was very excited to learn about Macy's VIP sale (online only, ends 9/21). With code VIP you get 20% off pretty much anything (some exclusions apply, but not many!), and that's an extra 20% if the item is already on sale. I picked up this cobalt dress in-store yesterday (did not receive an extra 20% since the promo is only good online but it was on clearance). I tried on a bunch of the options below though, which are eligible. The Sperry's are super-comfy and the Rachel Roy v-neck tunic is to die for in person. I found so many cute things it's going to be hard to narrow down what I want to order with the coupon! Check out my favorites below, and if you have secrets for saving money at department stores, please spill!

Navy striped top with navy pencil skirt for fall

I would totally wear this inspiration photo for fall. (Perhaps with a little less sock showing?) I decided to use the same color scheme to achieve the feeling of fall while it's still hot and humid here in FL. The result is two ways to wear the same "idea" - pea green, navy and stripes with cognac shoes - depending on the occasion and/or climate. Would you wear this color combo for fall?

Cobalt top with peach jeans

One of the things I'm most looking forward to about fall fashion: cobalt! I'm pairing it now with peach jeans for the end of summer. (Not sure I'd keep the python shoes, a simple nude shoe would be cute.) And this fall I'm planning to pair it with black, camel, leopard, or red!
