Happy Wednesday, friends! There’s a few good sales going on right now that include several of my longtime wardrobe staples! If you’re short on time, I’ve highlighted a “TOP pick” for each retailer that is versatile, practical, and stylish … so be sure to check those out!

1. SHOPBOP

The deal: 20% off your order under $500, or 25% off your order over $500 w/ code EVENT19
TOP pick: Sam Edelman Linnie mules – see them on me in white! 

  • Bristol 6 adhesive nippies – a must have for any undergarment drawer.
  • Sam Edelman Linnie mules (in black, white, or leopard on extra sale) or their Loraine loafers if you prefer closed back shoes. These both fit true to size on me and did not require any breaking in. They’ve been great for travel and the airport, especially with easy on/off through security and also when your feet get bloated on the plane.
  • Gorjana delicate jewelry – just got this mini circle necklace for layering.
  • Sam Edelman Odila scalloped sandals. See on me here, here, and here.
  • Madewell transport bag with removable crossbody strap, in black or cognac brown

2. ANN TAYLOR

The deal: 40% off shoes & accessories w/ code STEPITUP, and jumpsuits and dresses are on slae. Ends 4/11.
TOP pick: Block heel sandals (more pics here) – these have been my wardrobe staples for YEARS

I hope some of you were able to grab this flattering jumpsuit from my Instagram post last month, when all sizes were in stock! I bought it for my Boston fundraiser meet-up and it got so many compliments and questions. Fit is true to size, and the sash belt helps add waist definition. The length is good on me with 3″ heels, and the sleeves are more of a half flutter sleeve unlike the stock photos. I do wish the green was more emerald instead of a grassy green!

This classic navy eyelet flare dress with good reviews is the current version of my older one, pictured below. Their spring shoe collection is also gorgeous with a variety of flats, pumps, mules, and slingbacks!

3. NORDSTROM

The deal: Lots of new markdowns and sale price matching!
TOP pick: Zella midi leggings (more petite-friendly inseam) – love love love

  • My staple Zella midi leggings (petite-friendly inseam) are 40% off and still available in all sizes! I wear XXS and the length hits below my ankles. Looks like they are replacing this style with a lower-rise design, so get the originals while you can!
  • My Cara velvet headband is 40% off in black (easy to style, professional color). This one is lightweight, comfy, and has little comb teeth inside to help it stay in place.
  • Select colors of Madewell whisper tees (another staple!) are 40% off!
  • Gibson cozy ribbed cardigan is 25% to 50% off (depending on color) starting in xxs petite

Madewell bag, Madewell whisper tee xxs, Nordstrom cardigan (similar), Zella midi leggings xxs, Nike free sneakers 5.5 – everything is on on sale!

4. J.CREW FACTORY

The deal: 40 to 60% off sitewide.
TOP picks: J.Crew Basketweave Flats + Ruby pants (00p fits perfectly with no waist gap!)

I went through a phase last year during which I became obsessed with Mexican-style huarache woven sandals, but could not find a single pair in my size. Needless to say, I pounced on these! Note they run at least half size big (a sz 5 just fits me and I’m usually between 5 and 5.5) and the soles are thin, but they are rubber with traction and feel super pliable, lightweight, and comfortable for running around in. Since these are completely breathable yet have coverage on the toes, they are also perfect for when you’re running out the door on a hot day and realize you could really use a pedicure!

    The Ann Taylor jumpsuit is fantastic.

    Think I’m biased about the green color though due to being Irish!

    Super cute sale items, how amazing are those J.Crew flats! Seriously considering picking up the San Edelman mules in white – I am obsessed with that look!

    How did you get those beautiful loose waves in the first picture?

    Meant to tell you… bought the Nippies and they’re GREAT! I wore them the other day under a blouse I’d usually wear a tank under, but felt so comfortable wearing the Nippies instead of having on too many layers of clothing. Great tip Jean. Thank you. Love, Val

      Hi Jean. Love your posts!!! I didn’t jump on the Zella leggings and now the xxs is not available 🙁 Any other recommendations for classic black leggings? I’m 4’11.
