I love late summer.

The time right before fall rolls through when the days are still warm but the nights start to get cool. That's my happiest time. Throw in a family BBQ or cookout as Pete calls them and I'm about as happy as can be!

This special time of year calls for some special fashion. You need clothes that are comfy and can keep you cool during the warm days, but that can also adapt to the cooler evenings by adding a light sweater…

The only thing that can make late summer fashion better is if you are saving money on your clothing… easily!

I have been doing more and more of my shopping online and clothing is no different. Last week I bought some new dresses that are absolutely perfect for late summer and I bought them through Splender

Have you heard of Splender

It's a free site that you can use to do all your online shopping, where you get cash back on your online purchases (get up to 40% cash back)!

There are 800+ popular stores to choose from and you are even able to stack cash back, coupons, & offers to increase your savings (Example: 15% off sale + extra 30% off coupon + 5% cash back = big savings)! Awesome right?

Shopping with Splender is really easy!

I just went to their website, signed up for a new account… then I searched for my favorite clothing stores, saw the cash back being offered and any deals they are offering, clicked through their site and shopped as normal. The store then pays Splender a commission for sending you there to shop, and Splender shares that money with you in the form of cash back.

All you have to do is click through Splender every time before you shop, and you are well on your way to getting cash back.


For me, late summer fashion needs to be free flowing and comfy.

We are doing the back to school rush, but we still want to look fashionable. I bought this dress in both prints because it was screaming late summer to me. I love the way it fits and the material. It's soft and fits perfect.

Plus I got an awesome deal on it!

Having the right pair of shoes is a must too. 

I love wearing heels, but not when I'm enjoying the end of summer. That calls for sandals with a little something extra, like sparkles. These were the perfect ones for the look I was going for… and they go perfectly with both dresses. That's the other thing about summer fashion… it has to be hard working and versatile, like these shoes.

Days after I shopped… I got a box delivered right to my door!
