Happy Friday! We’re rolling into March with spring on our minds, and great finds on sale to scoop up in time for warmer weather! While the temps are still brisk, I’m thinking Julieta’s knit bodysuit with a sweetheart neckline (under $50) is the perfect warm texture for this transitioning season.
Springy Tops, Cool Shoes, Our Favorite Jeans & More Editor Sale Picks
Abercrombie is kicking off their Spring Event with up to 20% off almost everything, including the denim we’re hooked on: Amy wears the ’90s high-rise relaxed jeans on repeat, and made a compelling case below for these dad shorts (currently in my cart). Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of Levi’s 501s at 40% off.
Anyone else loving the playful prints and colors rolling out for spring? Scotti found Shana’s go-to date night top in a delightful floral pattern, Linzi and Meredith are eyeing up this effortless spring dress (check out the back!) and this striped ensemble says “fun” like no other!

Linzi’s Top Sale Picks
Getting straight to the sales because that’s what I do on Fridays! The sales are GOOD, and Shana already summed up perfectly how many of us are getting through our days right now. Thanks, S.
If you’re looking for deals on designer pieces, Saks’ sales on Theory (love this cardi for work or play) and Barbour jackets are my top picks. For my fav spring sale find, this guy is under $30, super cute, and VERY similar and more budget-friendly than the Veronica Beard one I’ve been coveting. If you’re searching for summer deals, I’m thinking about this as a new summer jumper/cover-up. Also…this dress (on sale for under $60 with code YOURS) is an AWESOME budget-friendly alternative to my Michael Stars gauze dress that I wore on repeat last summer. I’m tying the straps around my neck to make it look similar to the Michael Stars one (as a halter instead of tied on the shoulders). Although it IS thin (and not lined), the black didn’t feel too see-through or lightweight for me…especially for hot days or as a cover-up. Post coming soon with photos. Happy Weekend everyone! Hug your loved-ones tight.
Laura’s Top Sale Picks
Hey, Friday. What can I say? I’ll be honest…I’ve kinda focused a lot on work this week because my heart is just overloaded. I’m trying to stay aware and involved but balanced so I can continue to be a helpful human without totally losing it. @sharonsaysso said it well yesterday “You’re not doing it wrong. Life IS bitter and sweet, both/and. Much to grieve and much to celebrate. It’s part of the human experience, not something to run from.” That sits heavy and beautiful.
I often wonder if I’m doing enough in the world…and I remember how much I love this community here, how we have a platform to be able to share creativity and hopefully helpful information, and I remember that I’m where I need to be. Thank you all for being here.
This week I found some happy sweaters at Anthropologie…styled them up a bit in a fav new way and found a new-ish (comfier!) style of MOTHER jeans, just when I thought I was over them. Top sale picks? These moto boots (recently pulled mine back out!) and this raincoat (always on my mind here in Portland obvs.) Hugs, friends. xoxo
Scotti’s Top Sale Picks
I felt Shana’s weekend post deeply this week…she was able to put the feelings I’ve been having into words much better than I ever could (a common phenomenon with my sister). I wake up to heartbreaking news stories and then go on with a day full of packing (we’re getting ready to go to North Carolina for three months) and shuttling Greenlea to school and rehearsal–-she’s in a local production of Seussical and is having SO much fun with it. It opened last night and it’s just a joy to watch those kids doing what they love. And in the same moment, I see flashes in my head of what’s happening in Ukraine and the faces of the kids there…it’s just so unfair.
And now in the worst transition ever, J.Crew’s suits are 40% off right now…I love this one that has adjustable straps…and Dermstore is having a “Spring Refresh” event with 20% off favorites like R+Co and Supergoop!. It’s a great time to stock up for spring and summer–I always take advantage of this sale to buy my favorite Revitabrow and Revitalash.
Meredith’s Top Sale Picks
We’ve spent a much-needed week away skiing with the fam. My husband and I were even able to sneak in a date night. I wore my AllSaints sweater (also available in black, here) and it is truly the perfect lazy going-out top; you look put together without much effort.
Despite hitting the slopes, my mind is firmly in springtime shopping. I’m currently working on a jean shorts article and am most excited about (and a little terrified of) these low-rise Gap shorts and these high-rise A&F dad shorts (my abdomen is going to be so confused). Anything I can wear with my washable Birkenstocks is a win. (I own them in purple, but am seriously considering the coral peach.)
Finally, if you’re looking for a way to support small businesses in Ukraine, try Etsy. I found two great shops doing digital downloads right now: Grannysbox and JuliaKrasnikART. If you search Ukraine as a location you can find a lot more. Easy way to help.
Have a safe and happy weekend everyone, xo.
Amy’s Top Sale Picks
If you need a bit of free therapy, I’ve been finding the NASA Instagram account incredibly soothing to look at. I’ve followed it for years and anytime I feel uneasy, I click over to it. I won’t even attempt to explain why in a way that sounds deep or philosophical, but I literally just stare at the images and…it’s healing.
In other news, I am currently very obsessed with Abercrombie; I just did a shorts try-on that will come later this month, but if you want to grab some now during their Spring Event, the mid-rise mom shorts are surprisingly awesome, but the classic mom shorts are high rise + full coverage + best selling (and if you like 90s dad vibes at Disneyland (which is now all I want in life) these shorts are literally the best thing to happen to my summer wardrobe). Also, all of their denim is available in Curve Love style, too (extra room in the hips) AND they started adding “extra long” and “extra short” inseams for their best-selling jeans, which is simply amazing. If Abercrombie isn’t your jam, there are a ton of Levi’s shorts on sale over at Zappos right now, too — here’s an epic 501 pair! Xx
Julieta’s Top Sale Picks
Tell me I’m not the only one. I’ve been browsing the sales and adding things I genuinely love to my cart, and the next thing I know, it’s been a week, and what I wanted is long gone. There are certainly more important things going on right now; my brain couldn’t be more divided, maybe it’s just my ADD? All of them, for sure.
I can’t get this top out of my head. The colors are so good! I only wish it came in warmer fun colors. The only one that works for me is the olive and I’m craving more. But the black one looks good.
Kat’s Top Sale Picks
It’s hard to believe another week has flown by. There have been serious lows and highs for me this week, and I have to say, feeling all the feelings so intensely has been challenging. My heart breaks for the people of Ukraine and yet life here still remains the same. I too like Shana, feel like I am existing in some sort of bizarre split state.
And to distract myself from all the heaviness that is life right now, let’s get into the sales. So, I recently discovered that Nasty Gal sells plus size and let me tell you all they are seriously amazing! And this satin pj set is EVERYTHING! It’s what dreams are made of and the fit is perfection for me. Oh, and the icing on the cake… it’s currently $22! Also, I am kind of obsessed with these, but would love to know what you think! Sending you all love and light this weekend. XX – Kat
