Sunday Sales and Can’t Miss Buys

Welcome to Sunday Sales, our weekly feature highlighting some of the best deals and savings on wardrobe basics, novelty pieces, and accessories.

And because it’s the beginning of June, we’re sharing our Reader Favorite Finds from May that are currently marked down.

Sunday Sales: Reader Faves

Open Stitch Sweater

In green, black and white for under $60 with an extra 20% off at checkout, this open stitch sweater from Banana Republic Factory is one of my favorite buys for warm weather.

I fall into such a rut with tops always falling back on a tee or a button down, so I like the variety this adds.

Available in sizes XXS -XXL, I took the medium, in black and wear it with a fitted black tank underneath.

High-Rise Slim Jean

Also from Banana Republic Factory are these High-Rise Slim Jean.

These are a great, affordable option if you are looking to move out of skinnies but still need a tailored shape.

The big difference is the leg falls way instead of tapering in and gripping the ankle.

Available in regular, tall and petite in sizes 00 – 20, for $48 with an extra 20% off at checkout.

In sizes regular and petite in XXS – XXL.

Dotted Knot Sleeve Top

Another Ann Taylor Favorite is their dotted knot sleeve top, perfect to pair with any black or white bottom.

The neckline is open, a flattering mix of a scoop and a crew neck. And I like the detail at the sleeve.

Add to your cart if you want to take advantage of their buy more save more sale.

V-Neck Soft Gauze Popover

The V-neck Soft Gauze Popover from J.Crew is not just a best seller in May, but a top seller all of last summer.

Available in range of colors, including black and white, it was originally $79.50, but is now $46.50 (I have no idea how long this discounted price will last).

It’s a fantastic tee shirt alternative, available in sizes XXS – 3X.

Ruched One-Shoulder One-Piece Bathing Suit

A classic style bathing suit that fits well for under $100 is almost unheard of.

So this one-shoulder style from J.Crew is a wonderful find.

Available in a range of colors, in sizes, either classic or long torso in sizes 00 – 24 on sale for $59.50.

Extra High-Waisted PowerChill Skort

Readers are really loving skorts these season, specifically this one from Old Navy.

Wear this with a simple white tee and your favorite sneakers.

In sizes XS – 4X with tall and petites for only $14.99

Seaside Linen Shorts

These are my favorite beachy shorts, and when they are on sale is the perfect time to pick up a few.

I love the seaside linen collection from J.Crew.

Great colors, full size range (XXXS – 3X) and $39.50.

Throw over your bathing suit or wear with a simple tee or sweatshirt for you beach vacation.

Jacks Flip Flop 

Jack Rogers sandals rarely go on sale, especially their classic flip flop, and never in gold, so this is a great little find.

These are great if you want something timeless, and a little preppy.

They retail for $128 but select colors, including gold and silver are on sale for $96.00

Ribbed Cardigan

I adore this cardigan from Talbots, so I’m thrilled it’s on our best seller list.

The color combination is both classic and fresh.

I wear it buttoned up, as a top with white jeans and shorts.

It’s now 25% off of $89.50, available in sizes regular, petite, plus and plus petite.

Looking for warm white pant recommendations


Sunday 11th of September 2022

Where would you recommend buying warm white jeans that you talk about pairing with the puff sleeve cardigan?


Sunday 11th of September 2022

My new jeans are boyfriend and straight ankle length. So can’t wear with my Caslon booties?Absolutely love the AGL booties but they are $630 in Canada😢


Tuesday 6th of September 2022

I picked up the Old Navy Jeans today, and they fit me very well; I expect to get a lot of wear from them. While I was there, I tried on the Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt and was very unimpressed - it easily added 20 lbs to my entire torso! I see now that the models online are all wearing much smaller sizes than they should be to accurately show the fit of the shirt. Their sleeves are much too short and the "drop" shoulder doesn't drop on them. The fit on the plus sized model appears to be more accurate. Have you considered doing a post on shirt jackets, plaid and/or solid colors? Thank you!


Sunday 4th of September 2022

I picked up those Madewell sneakers; they are so good. Do you think we can wear them with a dress? I'm still trying to figure out this sneakers with dress thing and would love guidance. It seems really easy to be frumpy instead of trendy with that one.

Yes, actually we're featuring them on Wednesday because so many readers picked them up and I have them paired with a sweater dress. I think you just have to find the right one for our bodytype but it would be really cute.


Sunday 4th of September 2022

Thanks so much for letting us know that the Madewell sneakers are now 30% off. I bought them two weeks ago for $110 and returned them, but I’ve been thinking I should have given them more of a chance to break in before returning them so quickly. I just ordered them again, and this time they were only $67!

Hi Megan! I hope you do a "leather blazer 3 ways" piece, showcasing one like the Anouk style, above. I have a very similar blazer and would love some ideas on how to wear it. Thank you and keep up the great posts!
