June 2020: Reader’s Top Five Favs

The Well Dressed Life Top 5 for June

Our Reader Favorites Series rounds up the Top Five picks from the month. It’s based on our analytics and feedback from you.

Think of this round-up as a “must have” list generated by our readership. It’s always fun to see what ended up being popular from the contented I lined up a the end of May. 

June was all over the place. Opened! Closed! Opened! Closed!

Who knows what is going on anymore. 

From chatting with many readers, it sounds like we are all just taking it day by day. What else can we do?

Personally, I’m trying to savor every second of warm, beautiful weather because it feels like the summer is flying by despite being the longest year ever.

So as we get ready for whatever July is about to throw at us, we may as well do it looking good! 

June 2020: Reader’s Top Five Favs

 

The Well Dressed Life Top 5 for June

 

Once again, you picked some great pieces that can easily be worn now or later, whether you’re working from home, headed back into the office, or having dinner outside. 

Let’s break them down. 

Classic Striped Top

 

Boden Striped TeeStriped Top, $38

This striped top from Boden will end up being a reader favorite for all of 2020 – that’s how popular it is. 

Boden actually makes two options. This one is a slimmer fit. They call this a “slash-neck” top, which is the same as a boatneck. It’s available in sizes 2 -22. 

Your other option is their traditional Breton top, with a slightly more relaxed fit, also in sizes 2 – 22. 

Either is fantastic, it just depends on the fit you like best. 

Amazon Romper

 

Olive green romperRomper, $31

So much of the clothing I buy on Amazon gets returned. I try out all the popular picks that the Instagram influencers are pushing, to see if any of it is worth it. Remember, most of these influencers are getting paid by Amazon to peddle their merchandise. 

And most of it is crap. 

But I discovered this romper on my own (thank you very much) and it’s so great. It’s soft and cozy, just thing to throw on after the beach or pool, or if you’re simply hanging at home. 

You can’t beat the price, and it washes well. I take it out of the dryer when it’s still damp and lay it flat to finish. 

You can see it on me here:

 

Poplin Top

Striped Puffed Sleeve Blouse from Banana RepublicPuff-Sleeved Blouse, $63 (ON SALE FOR $25)

This blouse is on sale for $25 so if you need something for Zoom calls or you’re headed back to the office, grab it while there are still sizes. You can pair it with navy summer trousers, or simple white shorts. It’s available in “regular” and tall sizes. 

Banana Republic has been incredibly dependable during this shut down. There shipping is still fast, and their inventory is one of the few in retail that is still offering a solid size range. 

Linen Pants

 

Old Navy Black Linen PlantsLinen Pants, $30

Need a lightweight alternative to shorts? Give these linen pants from Old Navy a try. I live in these bottoms. They are currently under $30 and available in a range of colors in “regular,” tall and petite up to an XXL.

Skip the color “feather” it’s see through. 

To style them, you can keep it stay-at-home simple with a cotton tee, or pair it with a silk cami and heels for dinner outside. 

Tinted Moisturizer

Bare Minerals Tinted MoisturizerTinted Moisturizer, $33

There are a lot of reasons I don’t regularly feature beauty products. First, I’m not an expert, second, I’m loyal to what I use so I don’t have a lot of “new” recommendations, and finally, beauty brands are notoriously limited in shade offerings. 

But bareMinerals has always done a great job including the fairest (me) to the deepest shades. I love this tinted moisturizer for days you need light coverage with a smoothing effect. It feels good on your skin and doesn’t clog your pores. A little goes a long way.

Basics Building: White Jeans

Basics Building: White Jeans

If you could only buy one item to update you summer wardrobe,  I would tell you to pick  up a pair of white jeans. I wear mine all the time. You can pair them with just about anything, and instantly create a crisp, summer look that is always classic and always appropriate. 

Today, I’m continuing our Basics Building Series, with great fitting white jeans in straight or skinny legs in all sizes. 

Basics Building: White Jeans

Basics Building: White Jeans

My favorite white jeans, not only for me but for clients, are by NYDJ. Their fit is on point, they are comfortable, NOT see-through, and reasonably priced.

Let’s talk about price for a minute. White jeans range in price from $25 for Old Navy, to multiple hundreds of dollars.

I see no reason to spend an exorbitant amount here, but you might want to spend a bit more to get a quality pair.

NYDJ averages $119.  You can find them on sale throughout the season so keep an eye out. 

In terms of styling, straight or skinny leg is the way to go. Skip trouser or boot cut because they end up looking sloppy, and the whole point fo white jeans is to create a clean and tailored look.

The most important sizing note, specifically for NYDJ is to SIZE DOWN. These run full and stretch out.

Straight Leg

 

Basics Building: White Jeans

Straight Leg: Petite and Regular, On Sale for $83 and Plus, $109

A straight leg white jean is a nice alternative to a skinny while still creating a long, lean line of the leg. You want these to hit around your ankle, either just at or slightly below. This way, you’ll be able wear them with a low heel or flats. 

These are available in petite and regular from a 00P to a 16 here and plus size here up to a 26W.

Skinny Leg

Basics Building: White JeansSkinny: Petite and Regular, $119 and Plus, $99

Then there is the skinny. Remember that while you’ll feel these on your body, they are not the same thing as a legging. If they are too tight, especially in white, you’ll be showing off everything. You still need to size down in these, they run a full size big. 

Here, I’m featuring the petite and regular also in 00P – 16. There are two plus options to highlight. The first is the denim plus option here, and above is a stretch cotton pull on pant that is a nice alternative to denim.

May 2020: Reader’s Top 5 Favs

The Well Dressed Life Readers' Top 5 for May

Our Reader Favorites series rounds up the Top Five picks from the previous month. It’s based on our analytics and conversations, and feedback from you.

Today’s picks look a little boring, but they pack a big punch if you’re trying to either minimize your wardrobe or build it out with versatile pieces.

May 2020: Reader Top 5

Sam Edelman White Sneaker

Think of these items like the best of the best of all the options we featured in May. 

Linen Joggers

Linen JoggersLinen Joggers, $35 

I own these in the color above (blue – narrow stripe) and navy. They are great shorts alternative. Yes, they are linen, so they do wrinkle, but, surprisingly, that doesn’t bother me. I wore the nave pair last weekend with this popular white top from J.Crew Factory, and these Tory Burch sandals

They run true to size, available up to a size 18.

Tie-Front Shirt

Banana Republic Tie Front ShirtTie Front Shirt, $35 (ON SALE FOR $17)

This simple tie front top from Banana Republic comes in sizes up to and including a XXL and petite options. As I write this it is an additional 50% off, making it about $17. Grab a few colors if you can, it’s available in white, blue, a pretty yellow and black. 

They say it’s “cropped” but it’s not. It sits at your natural waist. So if you find that top are always too long, this would be a good option for you. Wear it with your favorite summer jeans, shorts or joggers. 

Jeggings

Butter JeggingsJeggings, $39

Perhaps the best and most affordable pair of jeggings that look like skinny jeans I’ve ever seen. First of all, these are under $40 – that’s Old Navy kind of pricing. 

Second, they fit fabulously. And they still fit me after three months of barely leaving the house. They are available in black (above) and a dark blue denim (here). Sizing is decent, from a 24 – 34 waist. 

Eyelet Shirt

 

LOFT eyelet shirtEyelet Shirt, $35

I love, love, love this sweet top. You can’t go wrong with a closet full of white tops. By adding some texture and detail – like the eyelet here, you get something that feels basic but looks special. That’s how you easily elevate an outfit. 

Wear this with summer denim, shorts, or even with skirt to work. Sizes option include “regular” up to an XL and plus size. 

White Sneakers

 

Sam Edelman White SneakerWhite Sneaker, $40

Finally, if you’ve been looking for a simple pair of white sneakers to wear with everything from jeans to dresses, pick up these by Sam Edelman. They are on sale at Nordstrom Rack for $40 in almost all sizes. 

When you wear a white sneaker, you want them to look slim on your foot, and not have a ton of detail. These have just enough to look fresh, without being distracting.

The Ten List: June 2020

"Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet."

The Ten List was our most popular series in 2019. This year, it moves from being a weekly to a monthly post to make more room for style focused content.

Here I share a thoughtful quote, a little insight, and some products (that don’t require their own post), articles, and other conversation starters that I’m enjoying. As always, I hope it’s a helpful bit of inspiration for your day and love to hear from you in the comments below!

#1 Quote of the Month

"Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet."

Thank you to everyone who commented or sent me a note after yesterday’s post addressing the current crisis facing our country. What is happening right now is overwhelming, and as I said yesterday, I am not educated or eloquent enough to be a source of social or political commentary.

I know that is not why you are here. I’ve always promised to keep our space light and positive, and that is what I am going to continue to do.

Because now more than ever, we need community. As this month begins, please know that I am heartbroken and angry. But walking around heartbroken and angry does me, the people I love most, and my community no good.

The best thing I can do is use this platform’s mission to be a place of inclusion and celebrate the beauty of womanhood. We all believe in the idea that when we take care of and honor ourselves, we show up as the best versions of ourselves in the world.

I feel it’s going to be the inherent empathy and compassion of women that bring up real change.

So let’s start today.

2. Patent Leather Sandals

Sam Edelman Sandals2. Patent Leather Sandals, $100

Sam Edelman makes a great shoe. They are always high quality for a reasonable price with a style that defines “classic with a twist.” If you need to update a pair of flat sandals, considered their “Bay Flat” sandals for $100. I love them, they work with shorts, ankle pants, dresses – anything. 

3. e-Cloth Starter Set

 

e-Cloth Starter Set3. e-Cloth Starter Set, $25

I discovered these e-Cloths last month, and they are incredible. With three kids, who have been home NON STOP for three months, I feel like all I do is wipe down counters and sinks, and my windows and doors are covered in fingerprints. (And my kitchen is all white so you see everything.)

This set comes with four “general cleaning cloths” and one polishing cloth. To use them, wet a cleaning cloth with warm water, you don’t need cleaning agents or harsh chemicals, and go about your chores. Follow up with the polishing cloth, you use it dry, and it leaves faucets, glass, and stainless gleaming.

4. The Chiffon Trenches 

The Chiffon Trenches4. The Chiffon Trenches 

We’re headed to the beach this week and I am so looking forward to indulging in this juicy tell all about the career Andre Leon Talley. 

The Chiffon Trenches offers a candid look at the who’s who of the last fifty years of fashion. At once ruthless and empathetic, this engaging memoir tells with raw honesty the story of how André not only survived the brutal style landscape but thrived—despite racism, illicit rumors, and all the other challenges of this notoriously cutthroat industry—to become one of the most renowned voices and faces in fashion.”

I mean, I can’t wait. 

5. Belted Shirtdress

Ann Taylor Belted Shirtdress5. Belted Shirtdress, $159

This gorgeous, buttery dress is on sale at Ann Taylor for 40% off bringing it to $95. I’m so thrilled more retailers are finally offering size scale, this dress comes in “regular,” tall and petite up to as XXL. (Size down it runs big.)

Wear it with neutral-to-you wedge sandals and fun earrings. If it feels long a simple hem from a tailor or dry cleaner will do the trick. 

And keep in mind, as the new landscape of retail evolves, it is so much easier for a company with the size and resources, like Ann Taylor, to offer size range. The smaller brands and boutiques are incredibly limited by order minimums and budgets to offer all sizes. 

6. Slim Canvas Wallet

Dagne Dover Slim Canvas Wallet6. Slim Canvas Wallet, $75

Need a graduation gift? This under $100 wallet by Dagne Dover is perfect. It’s classic and timeless but modern enough to fit into any style. I’m featuring it in “Bleecker Blush” but it’s also available in “Graphite” which is equally gorgeous. 

7. Statement Earrings

Kendra Scott Statement Earrings7. Statement Earrings, $98

I love Kendra Scott Jewelry but sometimes the pieces look too “Kendra Scotty.” Does that make sense? Not these! These are BIG earrings, that pack a punch. They are far outside my own style preferences, but if you’re looking for something oversized, that will still go with everything, give these a try. 

8. Toiletry Travel Bag

Toiletry Travel Bag

8. Toiletry Travel Bag, $23

I picked up this toiletry bag for the summer since we are planning on taking a few road trips to keep my toiletries and make up organized. It’s nice quality for the price!

I like the idea of packing, hanging it, and then zip it back up when we’re leaving. Since we’re traveling for the first time as a family of five, I’m trying to do everything I can to minimize effort and maximize space, especially with a toddler in tow.

9. Nail File

Nail File9. Nail File, $12

While many of us continue to wait not so patiently for nail salons to reopen, I picked up this nail file and buffer. I’ve been trying to be low maintenance and let my nails breathe for a bit to get them healthy. This file is great because you can use it to shape your nails, but the real magic is how it buffs them to a glass-like shine. It looks like you have on clear nail polish!

 

Tikka Masala Sauce10. Tikka Masala Sauce, $5

If you are looking for a quick and easy dinner, pick up this Tikka Masala Sauce. I have a house of picking eaters – I can’t even begin to explain their long lists of complaints and requests – 99% of which I ignore. (We are a house where dinner is dinner, I’m not a short-order cook.) They ALL eat this. Simply cut some chicken breasts into cubes and brown them, add this sauce, and let simmer for 10 minutes. I make some brown rice and serve with naan. It’s delicious.

* Two jars and three pounds of chicken feeds four with a bit of leftovers.

An Important Note to Our Community Before We Start June

Dear Friends,

Of all the things I am professionally and personally proud of, I am most proud of the diversity in this community. Within our readership are women of every age, religion, ethnicity, and race from almost every corner of the globe.

Nowhere is that more evident than in our Private Facebook Group, where every day I see how good women are to each other. It’s both humbling and reassuring to see, and something I take into consideration in every post I write.

I often wonder how that happened.

How did this little website, from the suburbs of Philadelphia, reach a global audience?

I think it’s because the conversations and content I share here are relatable. Despite any of our differences, we are bonded by a common thread, a universal desire found throughout womanhood to care for and feel good about ourselves.

While my content can feel frivolous, especially in times of despair, the depth and connection in this community run deep. Throughout the years, we have stood by each other: supporting, praising, and sending messages filled with kindness.

For me, these last few challenging weeks have been made better because of all of you.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I decided to take a few days away from the blog and social media to map out our summer strategy. My original plan leading into 2020 was to have an editorial team in place to help ease some of my workloads.

Unfortunately, all that is on pause until we see how quickly we can get back to “normal.”

As the week started, I was feeling a little overwhelmed, but generally optimistic. Restrictions were getting lifted; homeschooling was over; the pools are reopening!

Things were looking like they were taking a turn for the better.

And then the news of George Floyd’s murder came, and things kept getting worse, and worse, and worse.

 

 

By Friday, I was at a complete loss for words.

My deadline for writing this “Welcome June” letter had passed.

Do I say something?

Stay out of it?

Keep it light?

The worst thing I can be right now is another blogger, navel-gazing about race relations in America.

I am neither sufficiently educated on the topic or eloquent enough with words to do it any justice whatsoever. I also do not have the leverage or social platform power to make any significant impact.

And I promised you I would keep this a positive place, but if I genuinely want this to be a space and brand for all women, I need to use today’s post to say something. 

Many of you know I am the proud daughter of a now-retired police officer. I grew up in a working-class neighborhood where it seemed like everyone’s dad was either a cop or a firefighter. 

So much of who I am comes from my dad. My deep sense of right and wrong and the makeup of my moral compass are a direct result of who he is and how he raised me. He’s always been my north star for how to live with integrity, which he took with him to work every day.

He’s also why I am both heartbroken and infuriated by the video of George Floyd’s death.

It’s yet another example, in a long line of examples, that showcases an abuse of power and disregard for a person’s life based on his skin color. 

Racism, in any shape or form, is unacceptable. 

Over the years, I have been reading, listening, and trying to understand what privilege means and how I can be an ally. It’s a lot to unpack, but I get it.

I believe I can make the most impact right now, by doing this work within my home, where my husband and I speak frankly and honestly about race and racism with our kids.

As a family, we want to part of the solution, not the problem. We’re still educating ourselves, but we’re on the journey and learning together.

I understand that this not about being colorblind but rather to see and respect each of us for who we are.

It’s not enough not to be racist; we have to be actively anti-racist and stand up when we see injustice.

Since the inception of this site, inclusion has always been my priority. I started with size-inclusion, and as our business grows, other forms of inclusion and representation will follow to the best of my ability and resources. 

My goal for TWDL is and always will be to create a space for all women to feel seen and celebrated.

These are terrible times.

We are all exhausted, some of us much more than others. I’ve never considered myself a woman of faith, yet I’ve prayed more in 2020 than at any other time in my life  

I’ll be back tomorrow with The Ten List, and to dive into a lot of fun and helpful content to get us ready for the summer months. 

Right now I’m praying for everyone: for all citizens to be and feel safe in our country, for our streets to return to peace, for the men and women protecting those streets and businesses, and for understanding and empathy to prevail, so we can see and celebrate our shared humanity. 

xo,

Meg

 

 

Basics Building: Navy and White Striped Top

Basics Building: Navy and White Striped Top

We are continuing our basics building series, where I highlight one key piece from our Classic Wardrobe Checklist. Today, I’m featuring the striped top, in advance of its upcoming Wear it Three Way post.

I remember being a kid, seeing pictures of Jackie Kennedy wearing a slim pair of pants and a perfectly fitted striped top, and being instantly drawn in. How could one person be so incredibly chic? 

Since then, she and other icons (like the forever beautiful Carolina Herrera) have been my style guideposts. Their perfectly pulled together, well-edited, subtle, and approachable style has been my style goal and the basis of my entire business.

Perhaps, one of the core pieces of any style is the striped top. It’s undoubtedly the holy grail of classic American style and is foundational if you love French girl style. But no matter where you land stylistically, a striped top will serve you well hanging in your closet.

The Classic Striped Top 

 

Clockwise from Left: One, $24  |  Two, $25  |  Three, $38  |  Four, $30 

For today’s post, I rounded up a few options, to  cover as many sizes as possible. 

First, this one from Old Navy. it comes in missy, petite and tall, up to a size XXL. Right now, with all of the extra at check out discounts it’s about $17. It’s a relaxed fit, with three quarter sleeves and in comfortable boatneck style. 

Next up, this crew neck, long sleeve top from Everlane. It’s as basic and classic as it gets, with a reasonable price tag. If you’ve been curious about Everlane, their better basics are a good place to start. I find they run slightly small, so if you are in-between sizes, go up one. I’m a big fan of them as a brand; my one call out is that their sizes are still limited and could benefit from a more inclusive range.

Boden is another retailer that really nails the striped top. Generally speaking, they are even too preppy for me, but their basics are well made and they have an inclusive size range up to a 20/22. 

I LOVE this option, with a split top neck (similar to a boatneck) and slim body. This is more fitted and longer so if you are tall (like me) it’s a nice option. 

Finally, I included this square neck option from Gap since a boatneck, or crew neckline isn’t flattering on everyone. If you have a fuller bust, and want to try out the look, this might be a good alternative.

A Perfectly Polished Fleece for Work From Home Days

I’ve been home-based for most of my career. As a working mom, I can tell you that, even though it comes with its own unique set of challenges, I would pick working from home over going into an office any day. 

Hopefully, as we return to normal, more companies will be generous with their work from home opportunities. Countless studies show that a flexible work environment helps attract and retain female workers, and more women in the workforce, particularly in leadership positions, are better for everyone and everything. 

So today, I want to share one piece of advice, especially if you’ve recently been thrown into a virtual work environment, that has helped me succeed in my roles at work and home over the years and that is: ignore the idea that you have to have set work hours. 

I know that goes against everything you hear and read online. But the truth is if you work from home, have kids underfoot, are managing a home, busy family life, and the new challenge of homeschooling, there is no way possible you can also work a strict 9 – 5. 

So don’t even try. 

Routine Instead of a Schedule 

Instead, find a routine that works for your internal clock and your family’s schedule while still allowing you to be mindful of your work responsibilities, knowing that every day will look a little different. 

Over the last few months, my best, most productive days are the ones where we follow a loose and unconventional schedule. 

We have two-morning routines, one for me and Bri before the kids get up, and one to get the kids moving and set up for school. 

Bri and I tag team during the day, focusing on who has the most pressing deadline. That might mean I cover the kids when he has a call, or he jumps in when I need to meet a deadline. 

One of us stops work around 5 to start dinner (or these days order something) while the other wraps up a call or project, we try to take a walk as a family, and spend time with the kids. 

Then, we have two nighttime routines. One that gets the kids either to bed or settled for the night, so we can get in a few more hours of work, and then we have a simple routine to end our night later on. 

Instead of trying to replicate your usual office hours, consider an alternative schedule that will allow you the flexibility you need right now to wear all the hats. 

And of course, try to get dressed for the day. 

It makes all the difference in your mood and outlook. 

I featured this pale pink fleece over on Instagram a few weeks ago, and I’ve received so many messages from followers that they ordered it and LOVE it – I wanted to share it here too. 

It comes in four colors: black, light grey, oatmeal and pink, up to a 3X! 

Perfectly Polished Work From Home Fleece


Charles River Tunic Pullover

I make no exaggeration when I say I wear this several times a week. It’s the ideal weight for this time of year, when the mornings have a little chill in the air. I wear it with leggings for walks, or comfy jeans and sneakers. The quality is surprisingly fantastic. 

What makes this a real winner, though, is the length. So often, these kind of pieces feel just a little short in the body and then shrink over time. Because this is cut like a tunic, it covers your bottom!

You can see it in my below. 

I ordered the large (because it’s from Amazon and I always size up), but I could easily have worn the medium. I’ve washed it several times already and it hasn’t shrunk at all. 

In Real Life
