When the weather is confusing, the sales can be too. This week, I found items on sale that you'll want to wear immediately and some you'll likely store until next year.

1. Kenneth Cole Shirtdress
Was: $138.00
Now: $54.97
You save: $83.03

Why buy? This is a really fun take on the traditional shirtdress. A zipper in front rather than buttons makes this infinitely more hip and the elastic at the waist ensures a flattering fit. I love the model wearing this with stilettos but this of course also works with flats and boots.

2. Rebecca Minkoff 'Cherish' tote
Was: $175.00
Now: $104.99
You save: $70.01

Why buy? It’s summer tote time! The coated canvas fabric gives these spring pastels a cool sheen and will also help keep your bag clean on trips to the beach. If you don’t usually buy bags this expensive, consider it’s a quality brand and you can carry this everywhere.

3. Anne Klein alligator skirt
Was: $119.00
Now: $23.46
You save: $95.54

Why buy? Out of season, yes? Classic enough to come back into season year after year? Absolutely. (Anyway, did I really have to convince you at that price?)

4. Calvin Klein jacket
Was: $129.50
Now: $64.75
You save: $64.75

Why buy? Electric blue was the favored jean color last spring and it gives the same kind of upgrade to this tailored jacket. A single button will cinch your natural waist.

5. Shoemint 'Mary' flat
Was: $79.98
Now: $31.99
You save: $47.99

Why buy? The woven pattern and bright color is a great way to transition from winter to spring and summer. Shoemint is a subscription service so you’ll have to sign up to buy, but you’ll get an extra 20 percent off your first purchase with coupon code 20LUVUS.
