Today’s midweek sweep through the internet’s sale bins unearthed lots of mid-summer-ready deals for making the outdoors and the indoors a bit more tolerable, including a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses for your afternoon strolls, ergonomic wool socks for your newfound hiking hobby, and some well-rated noise-cancelling headphones (so you can finally find a moment of peace).

Lots of Ray-Bans are on sale at Amazon, up to 50 percent of, including these lightweight frames.

In case you missed it, Everlane’s first-ever Summer Sale is still going strong. There are lots of in-season and fall-ready styles up to 5o percent off, including this picnic-approved cotton dress that’s still available in sizes 00 to 16.

For some cheap-but-expensive-looking WFH desk décor, our favorite design-y stapler from Milan-based brand Ellepi is now under $20.

If you’re already looking forward to cooler weather, we think these wool Birkenstocks (paired with fuzzy socks) would make for a cozy addition to any fall wardrobe.

Anthropologie is taking 25 percent off select bedding and bath, like this gauzy cotton blanket that multiple reviewers describe as “perfect for summer.”

Madewell’s summer sale-on-sale just keeps getting better and better: We found this high-neck cutaway tank for under $20 with code GIANT.

If you’ve been spending summer in quarantine by taking walks and hikes, these breathable wool socks feature cushioned welts to help protect ankle bones and extra flexible fabric at the ankle joints for maximum comfort.

These polished-yet-relaxed pants in a workwear-esque ochre are both lounging- and Zoom meeting-approved.

To minimize work-from-home distractions, these noise-canceling headphones connect to your phone or laptop via Bluetooth for hands-free, uninterrupted meetings and phone calls.
