March Reader Favorites

Thank goodness it’s April!

We made it out of March, my least favorite month. The seasonal depression is lifting, the days are longer, the birds are chirping, and before we know it, it will be patio season.

Patio season: when the air is crisp, the vibes are chill, and you can sit outside with friends while the kids run around. There is nothing better.

One thing March did bring was tons of early spring finds.

So, let’s recap the best sellers from last month.

What did you scoop up?

15 March Reader Favorites

March Reader Favorites

So many fun finds, let jump right in.

Waist-Defined V-Neck Top

I didn’t think I was going to like this top but I’m thrilled I have it a try. It’s bright, cheerful and a welcomed departure from my fall and winter neutrals. It was earned top seller of the month.

Available in three prints, and solid white, black and orange, in regular, tall and petite sizes XXS – 4X for $25.99.

You can see me in it here.

Old Navy


Faux-Leather Shoulder Bag

I don’t buy much from Mango but when I saw their Faux-Leather Shoulder Bag as I was midnight scrolling a few weeks ago immediately ordered it.

It’ s sold out in the tan, but still available in black.

You can slide it comfortably on you shoulder, and it fits all your essentials, including a large phone, keys, a few lipsticks, and a medium sized wallet or card case.

 Two-Band Buckle Footbed Sandals

A fun and affordable trendy find from Target are these Two-Band Buckle Sandals for under $35.

Available in cream (below) or black, pair with wide leg linen or summer fabric bottoms, flowy maxi dresses, or simple shorts.

Long-Sleeve Split-Neck Top

Another Old Navy option that everyone loves is their Long-Sleeve Split-Neck Top. I showed you this last month in the blue and white stripe.

It’s also available in white (below), black, and a floral print in sizes regular, tall and petite in XS – 4X for only $20.

Wear this with your favorite jeans and later in the summer to add balance to a pair of shorts.

100% Organic Cotton Denim Jacket

This beautiful, classic denim jacket is made of 100% organic cotton and costs only $49. I say “only” because it’s about half the price of mainstream retail for arguably better quality.

Available in XS – XL, I took the medium.

Catalina Deluxe Tote

Going on a quick weekend trip? Upgrade your luggage with the Catalina Deluxe Tote from Reader Favorite Brand Lo & Sons.

This easy to carry, roomy tote will fit all of your essentials. And, honestly, I never realized what a game-changer a separate compartment for your shoes could be until I use it this past weekend for a quick trip to the shore.

On sale for $168 – a fabulous price for the quality and functionality you get.

Pointed-Toe Knot Sandals

Sometimes, when I review our best sellers, I think to myself, “Yes, I KNEW they would love those.” And that’s just what I did when these gorgeous pointed-toe know sandals from VIVAIA showed up on my report.

With rave reviews for comfort and beauty and just under $100 there’s a lot to love.

Available in 15 colors, I like the almond (below), the denim stripe (featured in our 2024 Trend Report) and the yellow as an unexpected pop of color.

Wear these with any pant or trouser, a dress, to a baby or bridal shower or a graduation.

Knotted Puff Sleeve V-Neck Dress

This simple yet updated tee shirt dress was featured in a Sunday Sales post in March and is quickly selling out.

It’s just an easy to throw on piece that feels a bit more elevated. Nice for a day of travel with sneakers or dress it up with your favorite flat sandals.

Sizes are limited but available in regular and petite at LOFT on sale for $42.00.

100% Organic Cotton Knit Blazer

Of all the items we featured last month, the Quince 100% Organic Cotton Knit Blazer is the one I get the most notes on, praising the quality, fit, and versatility.

It sits somewhere between a cardigan and a blazer, and looks best with pants or jeans.

Available in 11 colors in sizes XS- XL with plus size options in 1X – 3X here.

Modern Trench Coat

Admittedly, I have several trench coats, but this one from Gap Factory is the one I’ve been turning to the last few weeks, mainly because it’s lightweight and not fussy.

Other options in my closet have a lot going on, and while I like them, this one fits into my overly casual life a bit easier.

And it’s well priced at $84 in sizes XS – XXL, I took the medium and it has plenty of room to layer over bulky sweaters and sweatshirts.

PAVOI 14K Gold Plated Sterling Silver Post Small Chunky Hoops Earrings

Amazon earrings are our favorite around here, and my latest find was bought buy hundreds of readers.

Not surprising since they are comfortable, with an updated classic design and $14. Available in white or yellow plated gold.

100% Cotton Soft Knit Pullover Sweater

Available in a range of colors, this Amazon sweater is 100% cotton for $27.

I have been wearing this on repeat since I bought it, with jeans, white pants, and these popular wide leg pull-on pants also from Amazon.

You can wear this on it’s own but it’s lightweight enough that you can wear it under a blazer.

Go up one size when ordering.

Heron Long Line Jacket

I wasn’t the only one who pulled the trigger on a classic Barbour Jacket this season.

Their Heron Long Line Jacket was at the top of our reader favorites last month. It’s such a stunning coat, perfect for rainy spring days.

Retailing for $350 it could be a considered purchase, but one that you will have forever – there is no expiration date on coats like this.

Pay close attention to sizing Barbour runs small.

Sculpted Straight Pant

A black trouser for under $50 these days in unheard of, but Banana Republic Factory deliveres a pant beloved by all.

Sizes are limited to the point that I would say this is a last call, but still available in regular and petite in 0 – 20, with options in black, navy and khaki.
