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.

Lightweight Dress Cardigan

Pick this up if you are looking for a simple cardigan to wear over a dress this summer or just want something a little more finished.

Available at Ann Taylor, in white, black, red, pink and brown, on a spend more save more promotion ($50 OFF $150, $100 OFF $250+! USE CODE: UPGRADE).

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.

I love the extra high-wasted power chill skort. But I really really like the T-shoes the model is wearing with the skort. Do you know the brand?

I have no idea


Thursday 1st of June 2023

I am 5’5’ and bought a pair of Spanx twill wide leg cropped pants regulars. Now I can’t figure out if I need to adjust the length for my height. Is the hem to hit just above the ankle or 1-2 inches above? What is more flattering? I can not believe how many different answers I find. Help please! It is a cute look if I only could figure out how to pull it off.

I failed to purchase the polka dot , beige and cream or white. Wish I had. Can you give me info? Thank you

I love how you find us such good deals! I think I'm going to get the Old Navy top and get some use out of my strapless bra. For heaven sake, it just sits in my drawer.

Thanks for all you do for us!

I picked up the chambray shirt at LOFT last week. So soft and comfortable. It’s set to go in my bag to Italy next month as a versatile layering piece.

Megan I cannot get the wardrobe check list to print. I have been following you for a few months now and love every post. Is there another way I can obtain a copy?

Your ideas are great. Photos and links make it easy to “recreate” from my closet. (And a few outings to Nordstrom etc.)

Thank you. I look forward to your posts.



Sunday 19th of March 2023

Thank you for your recommendations Megan! I ordered the utility jacket- love short jackets for my long waist and short legs! I have some great items in my closet thanks to you!

Such cute things at JCrew Factory!! I really appreciate how you curate the best things, makes it super easy for me to get a few spring outfits ( now that it's freezing again in DC!)


Sunday 26th of February 2023

Help me understand why designers are always showing long shirts, sweaters etc and then all the models show how to tuck in the front to make it shorter. Just please make a shorter top

Megan Kristel

Sunday 26th of February 2023

Because people have different body types, wants and needs. The front tuck is just a style option. And also there are a lot of shorter tops available in retail.


Sunday 19th of February 2023

I love loft. Great place to refresh her wardrobe and add some colorful more and trend pieces. Can you do a blog post on three different ways to wear the chambray denim top? I feel like I want to experiment with this trend of denim on denim, but not really sure how to do it other than wearing it with white pants. As always thanks for the great content.


Sunday 12th of February 2023

Love your newsletter and your common sense approach to classic style.

Megan, recently in an article you talked about a makeup artist that you follow. I cannot seem to find the article. Can you give me her name again? Thanks so much!

Hi your website and am using my Pinterest page for shopping. Question, as an older woman with a tummy, I need layering pieces such as camis that are bigger at the bottom and not so slim as to show the flaws. Perhaps like something to wear with the sweater you are showing today. Any ideas there would be great. Thanks.....

Megan - It's that time of year again when I start trying to find white jeans/pants . Yes, it might be a little early but if I don't start now I won't have them to wear in the spring. I'm in a weight gain season so I am getting frustrated that all I have been able to find so far are smaller sizes. Suggestions?


Sunday 15th of January 2023

Thanks once again for great ideas!! Can't wait to get my items!


Sunday 15th of January 2023

Love your posts! Can you do one on sundresses/cover ups etc for a winter getaway to the beach? You always find the best things! Thanks!

It looks like J Crew is offering an additional discount on sale items- it brought the necklace down to 17.50!


Sunday 15th of January 2023

I assume prices are in American dollars, Ordering from US is always a tedious process, and returns are a pain. I have a Borderfree account. Any suggestions ?

Megan Kristel

Sunday 15th of January 2023

This is an US based website and I am a one woman show, I don't have any suggestions.


Sunday 11th of December 2022

Hi Megan, So many great posts this month! Question: I have the J Crew V-Neck Soft Gauze Popover and really love the weight and quality. I struggle with the tuck - I'm short waisted so a little long to not tuck but the vent cuts on the side always seem to poke out just looking off when I do try to tuck. Any suggestions?


Sunday 11th of December 2022

I bought the green ring too - so cute and while I was there updated all my power gem bracelets from Gorjana (I wear them every day) - fun post today! Especially love your note about getting back to the spirited side of you and why you love fashion xo

This is great! I am looking at the Ann Taylor pants! Thanks!

DSW has a sale right now. 25% off with the code BFF25. It's their Friendsgiving special.

Hi! Where can we find the belt in the photo? The one with the joined circles?


Sunday 4th of December 2022

@Wendy, Hi, I think Megan has shown this one or a similar one from Amazon.


Sunday 18th of September 2022

I like this one! I like the texture. I feel like it would help hide lumps!😁


Friday 16th of September 2022

Hi Megan, I love the look turtlenecks but I don't typically wear them because they elongate my already very long torso. Would layering a shacket or vest on top help balance out a long torso or should I still steer clear ?
