Happy Friday! It’s an absolute heat wave here in Philly, which calls for an escape down the shore. I’m still on the hunt for a solid and reliable one-piece swimsuit, and J.Crew’s end-of-season sale might be the time to take the plunge — literally. Scotti has been raving about this plunge one-piece J.Crew suit for years. It’s comfortable, flattering and made to last. Just throw on denim shorts (under $30) and beachy slides, and you’re boardwalk-ready.
End-Of-Summer Deals At Anthro, Nordstrom, Gap + More: Top Editor Sales Picks
If weekend plans look more like chilling by the AC, Amy’s eyeing up these wide-leg cotton-blend pants at Nordstrom, and just looking at them puts me in a laid-back mood. Ooh, and Laura found those cozy knit SKIMS pants on sale for an extra 25% off! If you like to lounge in luxury, Kat found this gauzy maxi dress, similar to Shana’s white Farm Rio dress, for under $100. Speaking of Farm Rio…my jaw dropped when Julieta first shared this stunning cover-up (on sale at Anthro). The print is so good.
More sale finds below. Happy shopping!

Hey, hey, Friday. I’ll keep this short and sweet because I’m headed to the Oregon coast today for a girls’ weekend! Hooray! It’s gonna be 70 degrees and super chill, and I could not be more excited. This is what I am so needing right now. OH, but I do want to throw a mention in for the hubs…he created a really rad Spotify playlist this week of current Portland artists, if you’d like to give it a follow. He’s got some fun stuff in the works to get back into the music industry he so loves, so thanks for the follow over there for him! It’s fun to listen to even if you’re not in the PNW…some really great listens.
Sales this week? There are some fun albeit slightly random finds from me. I think I’m feeling like chilling if you look at all the PJs I’ve included below, haha.
Don’t Miss These $12 (!!!) Gap Jeans: I shared a pic in them over on Facebook last week because these High-Rise ’90s Loose Jeans are so good, friends! Lighter denim with a little stretch, but the fabric isn’t too thin. TTS, but size up if you want a little more slouch. I wore my typical 28 though. SO freaking good! Use code CYBER for savings.
This $35 Blender Is Legit: I just published an article here raving about this little Ninja guy, but it’s so much lighter and easier to use than my giant version that I hate lugging out of the cabinet. If anything, go check out my date-peanut-butter caramel or watermelon frosé recipe there!
The Saks Designer Sale Has Me All Heart Eyes: Saks has a designer sale going on that gets you a gift card of varying amounts with your purchase. My top pick would be these gorgeous jeans with the cool faded front crease I’ve been wanting!
Have a great weekend, y’all! xo

Yesterday was Greenlea’s 8th birthday — I can’t believe she’s so old! We decorated the house (using this easy all-in-one kit) and invited friends and family over to celebrate. She wanted a “mint” themed party, so we all wore some sort of green (she wore this adorable dress), and I ordered a Girl Scout Thin Mints Blizzard Treat Cake from Dairy Queen (omggggg, was it good!). She’s a bit bummed that her birthday is over (it’s all we’ve heard about for the last few weeks), so we’re going to snuggle her and celebrate her as much as possible this weekend.
BEST. MONEY. SPENT: We just invested in a trampoline, and OMG, it’s the best thing we’ve done this summer. The kids LOVE it, and they can get all their energy out while Zack and I can finally have some time together. Why didn’t we do this sooner??
Goodbye, Uniboob: I recently had to borrow my mom’s sports bra when I forgot my own… and it’s SO good, you guys. I was hesitant (it looked real intense), but the underwire keeps the girls in place — like, ZERO bounce —and separated. NO uniboob! (And the white color is part of the NSale!)
Extra 25% Off: My mom has been wearing these adorable UGG platforms sandals, and she loves the extra height they give her (plus they’re super-comfy). And now they’re an extra 25% off, down to $73 from $130! (Maybe she’ll want another color??)
Happy weekend, everyone!

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks yall! I’m excited to share that the episode of “Dancing With Myself” that I was on finally went live, and you can watch it on Hulu or Peacock! It was seriously one of the best experiences I have ever had, and I met some of the most incredible people. I feel so grateful to be able to be a plus-size woman representing the dance and fitness industries, and love that the show featured so many people from different walks of life. Oh, P.S. if you ever want to work out with me, I’ve got several 15-minute HIIT workouts over on my YouTube channel! Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

The kids have been at camp, and I’ve been BUSY! Reader Elena asked how I was wearing my Zella Wrap Sweatshirt Jacket (on sale for under $60!), so I showed the 9 ways I’m wearing it here. And I mentioned in last week’s Sales Report that I’ve been switching in these Levi’s jeans (on sale for under $70) for my beloved wear-on-repeat MOTHER denim, so I showed the comparison here. More sales I’ve been into below.
I’m Ordering This Today: I HATE running out of any of these: three of my favorite products on sale together.
Designer Denim For Fall: Saks is running a gift-card-with-purchase promotion — definitely worth taking a look if you’re buying jeans for fall anyway. My MOTHER The Insiders are included in addition to my MOTHER The Tomcat Flares. More denim in the promotion here — easy to filter by brand or size.
Eberjey Too! Included in Saks’ promotion event. I know I would wear the HECK out of this jumpsuit if it made it to my house. My most-worn pajamas are there too.

Hey, friends! As I sip my second cup of coffee and eat peanut butter M&M’s for breakfast (it is what it is), I can’t help but feel like I had to dig around extra deep for good sales this week. Perhaps a lull before a big turnover into fall fashion, but even so, what I did end up finding feels like a handful of truly epic scores.
My First J.Crew Purchase (…Ever): I just bought these, and they’re perfect for my “coastal grandmother” wardrobe. I noticed they’re on sale in a few colors, and the French Blue is literally stunning.
Added This To My Cart So Fast: A cashmere/cotton-blend sweater on epic sale. Can we just talk about how good Nordstrom’s extra 25% off section is?!
I Know It’s Summer, But… I just stumbled upon two gorgeous coats that I’m dreaming of styling up for fall. Should I go Grey Marl or this unique beige pattern?!
The rest of my picks are below. Happy weekend!

Hola from Colombia. We made it here on Monday night, just in time to celebrate my Abuelita’s 85th birthday. She was the main reason I rushed my trip, which usually happens only in August. Now we’re headed to the country’s Eastern Plains for warmer weather, delicious food, culture, and more important, to celebrate my mom’s birthday. Check my IG stories to see more of my beautiful homeland.
A Sale I Can’t Resist: Nordstrom has stunning pieces from Alice +Olivia, AllSaints, Theory, Cinq á Sept and Farm Rio on sale, and I’m swooning over this slip dress and this little white dress.
Never Too Early For Unique Fall Sweaters: This patterned sweater is too good, and I’m obsessed with the styling in the photos.
My Sexiest Dress On Sale: If you’re a newsletter friend, you probably saw this stunner in the My Everyday Edit email. You can get it on sale and under $100 this weekend, AND I just saw a swimsuit in the same pattern. Do I need it?
More fun colors and pieces I’m eyeing below. Happy weekend!

Happy Friday! Lana made the last-minute decision to spend a few days with the grandparents this week, so it’s been eerily quiet around here. Turns out, we miss her like crazy, but it has been a bit of a treat to have at-home date nights with Chris after the babe’s early bedtime. We ordered omakase from Sushi Sam’s last night (one of our absolute FAVES) and have been crushing shows. “The Terminal List,” “For All Mankind” (highly underrated, if you ask me), and we finally started “The Bear” last night. Not quite sure what took us so long!
Snapping Up This $5 Sheer Linen Tank: It’s been a minute since I’ve shopped at H&M, and every time I pop back, I’m always pleasantly surprised. And they’re offering an extra 15% off everything right now, including sale. The little plug-in we use won’t let me add my picks to the shopping widget below, but in addition to that (shockingly elevated) $5 tank I mentioned, I’m eyeing these wide-leg jeans for $19. And this $10 hooded rain cape (the name alone!) is alluringly practical and surprisingly chic.
Butter Me Up: I haven’t been able to escape for a real spa day yet, so I’m just indulging in all the after-shower products to keep me buttery soft at home. Just nabbed this Kopari duo in the NSale (I stalked reviews all over the web first, and it’s supposedly amazing), and I’ve been dousing myself in this body oil nightly. It truly makes your skin gorgeously soft and glowy without feeling like an oil slick, and the suuuuuper-light fragrance feels very high-end. (Note: The limited-edition set sold out in the NSale, but it’s still available directly through the retailer — not on sale but still a good value for the bundle.)
Verishop’s Sale Section Is Not To Be Missed: Remember Verishop? Huge range of designers from indie to super-high-end at a variety of price points, and its sale section is brimming with finds (sort by size to make it easy on yourself). Loving the subtly sexy, comfy ease of this dress (also in red!) with these elegant, squishy slides.
