Welcome to the Valentines Day/Presidents Day long weekend, yall! While you may or may not be off on Monday, theres still lots to celebrate when a long weekend comes right on the tail of Valentines Day, amirite?

Style Alert!

Next week, Ill be getting underway with my 2020 Spring & Summer style guides! Ive been working hard on them, and Im excited about the pretty and flattering trends I see for warmer weather! I gave you a little sneak peek at some of the trends in last weekends Whats Up, Weekend post and here are a few more:

This Weeks Best-Seller

Its always fun for me to see what you all loved from the past week, and tracking that helps me know what kind of content youre enjoying here on Empty Nest Blessed! There were two this week!

These adorable snakeskin print booties were one of my favorite fall finds, and Ive worn them on repeat! They fit TTS, and the flexible sole and block heel make them oh-so walkable and wearable. (I love finding on-point styles that work for my midlife feet! ) These just went 25% off, and theyre still available in every size with free shipping and returns. Theyve already been restocked a couple of times, and I know theyll sell fast now that theyve been discounted, so Id get em now if you want em!

These pretty floral press candles were also a big hit this week, and I know why! Theyre well priced, make great gifts, and theyre unique! #lovethat

black wedge style sneakers

Black & Blue Polka Dot Sweatshirt | Jeans (similar) | Wedge-Style Black Sneakers | Tory Burch Logo Earrings | Sunglasses

How fun is this heart sweatshirt! Its a non-traditional Valentines Day look, for sure! In fact, its so non-traditional, Ill be wearing it all year round, thank you very much! It fits TTS. The wedge sneakers were a real find at Target this fall, and I love the way the little wedge inside them make me stand up straighter when I wear them. (Plus I feel kind of street! ) They fit TTS.

Best Weekend Sales

Brands love an excuse like a long weekend to put things on big-time sale, and this weekend is no different! This time of year, brands are clearing out the tail end of their winter merchandise and showcasing their spring styles in earnest. That means youll see lots of deals on wear-now winter styles. If you see sales on new, spring merchandise (i.e., sitewide sales or sales on full-price styles), those are worth checking out, so Ive highlighted them in red for you.
