Dressing for the heat is hard enough, so we're all about making it as fun as possible this week. Check out some of our favorite playful picks to spice up your wardrobe without overexciting your credit card company:

Abercrombie & Fitch
: 50 percent off redlines. This Blair dress is soft, cute, and has a universally flattering fit. Add wedges (we've recommended hundreds) for a playful daytime look or sport a ballerina bun and pumps for nighttime glam. (Was $58, now $24.95)

French Connection: Up to 50 percent off. This Summer Thistle strappy playsuit is adorable, even though we're usually terrified of rompers. The print is fun without making the look overly loud and we love the intricate strap design. Even better, the color lets you go crazy with your shoes - check out some of our favorite work-friendly options. And if your'e feeling really adventurous, why stop at just a romper? Jumpsuits await... (Was $128, now $79.99)

Gap, Banana Republic, and Old Navy: 35 percent off. This print tie-shoulder top is loose enough to keep you cool on your way to work and is stylish enough for any occasion - we love the tie-shoulder look. Besides, we hear animal prints are making a comeback. (Was $59.95, now $39.99)

Lord and Taylor: 55 to 70 percent off all clearance. We love this Magid straw tote in every color - it's the perfect shape, size, and material for the beach, boardwalk, and even a city stroll. The rope strap adds a fun nautical theme for seafarers (or, more likely, seafarer wannabes) and the zip-top offers a practical safeguard to those persistent sand piles. (Was $80, now $40)
