Are you guys busy shopping the Shopbop sale? I AM.
At the risk of harping, I wanted to do a round of dressing-room-selfies for Shopbop’s Friends & Family sale. Last year, I used this sale to get myself ready for summer and it paid off in a big way. These purchases became the workhorses of my summer closet, and a year later, I’m still thrilled to be wearing them. So here were my all-star pieces from last year’s sale (they’re back), as well as a few recent purchases that – serendipitously! – are now part of the sale.
In case you missed it, you can see all of my top picks from Shopbop’s friends and family sale here.
Rag and Bone Destroyed Jean Shorts + Wilt Tank
These shorts came on every trip I took last Spring/Summer (including Puerto Rico) and were worn almost daily. They’re longer, but not mumsy thanks to the cool distressing.
This Wilt tank has been washed and dried dozens of times and still looks brand new.
One Teaspoon Shorts + Monrow Tee
This tee is five years old. Few tees have lasted that long. And these One Teaspoon Bandits (appropriately nicknamed “denim underwear” by a reader) are so freaking cool. I tend to wear tiny shorts with something more conservative up top and flat sandals. This is one of my (and Mike’s!) favorite looks. These daring shorts won’t be for everyone, but they do drop down in the back to avoid, uh, hanging cheeks. (The side view is slightly dangerous, though.)
Stateside Tee + AG Long Shorts
These shorts were a happy accident. A friend of mine picked them up recently and I had to have them. Perfect for those days when you don’t want to deal with mini shorts. The spot-on wash (AG always nails the wash) and slight distressing keep these firmly in the cool category. I went up a size just to get that slightly slouchy, boyfriend look. Especially works with a fitted tank, or even something slightly cropped to show a sliver of skin.
This Stateside tee is thin and pretty, and washes/dries nicely. (Just don’t let it sit forever in the dryer – wrinkle city.)
Longtime readers will recognize this dress. It’s fabulous, comfortable, and has been worn to everything from the beach (with flip flops) to brunch (with sneaks) to verrry fancy parties (with high, high heels). Truly one of my top finds. Happily, this dress is back and is available in gray or black.
(Haha – note that Shopbop’s description is a “mini” dress. Only if you’re 5’10”. Snort. )
My Black Flared Overalls
I bought these recently and I know I’ve droned on and on about how much I love them. Well, it’s true. And they look so freaking cute with a little tank for Summer. They’re already on sale at Shopbop (for 50% off!!), but now you can take an additional 25% off.
Free People Tank + Rag and Bone Summer Boyfriend Jeans
This Free People tank hides a soft stomach and shows off shoulders, making it a surprisingly sexy little top.
And these are just the latest boyfriend jeans I’m obsessing over. I tend to retire skinnies in the summer – it’s too hot. If I wear jeans, I wear destroyed boyfriend jeans. These are perfect. (Note – I’ve already chopped the bottoms off a little bit.) I went up one size from the other Rag and Bone Dre’s.
Hope this helps! And there are more everyday tees, spot-on denim shorts, pretty dresses, and flat shoe picks in yesterday’s Shopbop sale article. As well as swim. Oooo….
