Our 5 Summer Must-Haves

s u m m e r  s u n  &  l o t s   o f   f u n

Temperatures are rising and summer festivities are in full swing. Check out our top 5 summer must-haves to get you prepared for your upcoming parties, pool side gatherings, concerts & date-nights. :)

#1: Maxi Dress
Maxi's are your go-to throw on and go piece. You can dress them up or down. They work for a day of running errands in the summer heat or a girl's lunch outing. Our favorites are the West36 and Tulle maxi dresses. They are light weight and come in vibrant prints and colors.

Dress $69, Dress $69, Dress $69 Dress, $90

The fun and flirty peach chevron-print maxi featured at the top has been a best seller. It can be found here. This will double for other must-haves this summer such as a BBQ or pool side party dress.

#2: White Jeans

White jeans are a definite must-have for the summer. Wear them to compliment a pop of color, or tone them down for a more classic look. Our favorites are a super skinny fit, boot cut, cropped, and a pair of white shorts. These are a staple and can lighten up any outfit.

#3: Sun dress

 Dresses from left to right:
Dress, $52
Dress, $52
Dress, $68
Dress, 68

Sun dresses are perfect for BBQ cook outs and day time activities. Throw one on with cute sandals or wedges for a concert, cook out, showers, or any other casual party. 

#4: Pool Side Cover-Ups

Our scarves have multi-uses as shown in the picture above. Our favorite way is to tie up 3 corners and create a long, flowy vest. All four of these versions are perfect to jazz up your outfit or use as a swim suit cover up!

See below for our #5 pick. These one-size, seamless dresses are our top selling dresses as a basic throw on and cover up dress.

#5: Seamless & Coobie Bra's

Last but not least, our seamless items and Coobie bras are a summer must-have. These include our one-size-fits-all tanks, dresses, slipsbandeau's, half-tanks, and dresses. They are perfect for layering with over-sized tanks or open dresses and replacing your bra on hot summer days.

* B O N U S *
NuBra (sticky boobs)
& Hank Panky's

The NuBra (aka sticky boobs) are an absolute essential for your summer outfits. This bra has separate stick-on cups that you can adjust on your skin. There are no straps so you can pull off all of your backless and skinny strap summer tops/dresses.

Hanky Panky thongs are one-size and come in the original and low-rise fit. They are known as THE most comfortable thongs. The stretchy lace is great quality and the fun colors are necessary for summer time. 

Hope you enjoyed our summer must-have list. Don't forget to check out our new arrivals every Friday!

July 4th Party Planning

The 4th of July will be here before you know it! If you are like us, you can't wait to host a fabulous red, white and blue themed cookout with your closest friends and family. Hosting a party can be a little stressful so we are here to help. Check out a few of our favorite recipes, decorating and wardrobe ideas for this fun filled holiday.

When it comes to the 4th of July, nothing says summer like good 'ole American BBQ, corn on the cob and fresh sliced watermelon! We found an amazing (and super easy) recipe for BBQ chicken sliders from the Cookin Up North blog. This recipe takes only minutes to make and uses a rotisserie chicken.

You will need:
4 c. shredded chicken

1 c. BBQ sauce
2 T. honey
12 pickle slices
12 Kings Hawaiian buns 

Heat the BBQ sauce and honey. Add the chicken and heat through. Scoop onto buns and add pickle slices. Is that easy or what?? :)

When hosting a great party, it is absolutely necessary that you have a delicious cocktail ready for your guests when they arrive. We found this tasty recipe for red, white and blue sangria from Punchbowl

You will need:
Strawberries, sliced
Pineapple, cut into star shapes
2 bottles dry white wine
1 cup Triple Sec
1/2 Cup berry-flavored vodka
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup
Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refridgerator for at least four hours. Yum!


For decorations, we love how Lauren Conrad (from MTV's The Hills) went with this colorful display. Target is a great place to find cute, affordable decorations for the 4th of July. Red, white and blue paper napkins, plastic wear and plates are a simple touch to any cookout. Another store to check out is Party City. They have an overload of all things red, white and blue: beads, balloons, flags, noisemakers and more!

We have saved the best for last-what to wear. Planning a party can be stressful and picking out the perfect outfit can add more stress. We picked out a few of our favorites to help keep things simple. 

 A bright red or blue top is always a great choice and can be worn with denim shorts or white jeans. Add a simple necklace, some bangles and wedges and you are good to go.
(Tops, $39. Also available in white)

For a slightly dressier look, we are loving this blue and white chevron print maxi dress. Wear this with gold flats or a white wedge and accessorize with a touch of red jewels for a patriotic look. 
(Dress, $69. Also available in mint and white)

We hope this helps take the stress off planning your fabulous 4th of July soiree. To shop more red, white and blue looks, check out our website www.sageclothing.com. And don't forget, new arrivals every Friday! :)

Happy 4th of July from all your friends at Sage!
