After some very careful monitoring, the weather forecast finally seems to be swinging our way - this Saturday is supposed to be 85 degrees and sunny. (Although we've probably jinxed it now...) So if you've been holding your breath as clouds have snuck their way into the forecast for the past three weeks, this is your chance for a full-on beach day. To make your day the comfiest and chicest ever, here are our favorite on-sale picks:

: Up to 70 percent off. This twisted bandeau bikini halter is a great style for all shapes and sizes - its halter strap is removable and the bandeau top provides the perfect amount of support. And the bold print is perfect for summer - particularly if you're not as into the whole red-white-and-blue theme. (Was $29.90, now $14.99)

J.Crew: 20 percent off on women's knits and tees. Say hello to the most comfortable shirt you will ever wear - the Whisper Linen tunic tee. The shirt is 100 percent linen and the perfect thing to throw on over a bathing suit as it starts to get chilly at the beach. (Was $45, now $36)

JC Penney
: 30 to 60 percent off tops, dresses for $19.99. This B. Darlin strapless dress is simple but fun, and its lively print doesn't require any accessorizing. Dress it up with a ballerina bun or highlight your shoulders with a faux bob. (Was $60, now $19.99) Extra 20 percent off sale items. This sorbet cut-out strapless swimsuit is so cute we want to wear it in and out of the water - and you (probably) can! Toss on a pair of shorts and some sandals and you've got yourself an elegant summer look, on and off the beach. (Was $390, now $156)
