What DFMD readers are buying this week

These are the items my readers having been clicking through and then making purchases according to my analytics. While I have no way of knowing if these are actually the specific items you’re purchasing, these are at least the items you’re clicking through. Make sense?

Tech Stretch Ankle Pants

I’ve worn these Tech Stretch Ankle Pants almost every day this week! (I have them in navy, too.) I find them to be lightweight, comfortable and yet polished looking. So they’ll be great travel pants, whether you’re on a long car trip or traveling by air.

Tech Stretch Ankle Pants

These Tech Stretch Ankle Pants have bad reviews on the Nordstrom website, but I think that’s because the reviewers didn’t understand what they were purchasing when they ordered them. These very thin pants are made in a moisture-wicking, four-way stretch fabric akin to what you wear in most athleisure pants. But they have a very polished silhouette and appearance, making them perfect for looking chic and pulled together while traveling or just getting out and about. These Tech Stretch Ankle Pants are a great “instead-of-short” option for summer.

And right now the black pants are 60% off and the navy are 30% off at Nordstrom. Also, if you’d like to check out the other Tech Stretch pieces available at Nic+Zoe, use my link and get $20 off your first purchase (only at

Secret Stretch Casual Utility Slim Pants

I guess it’s no surprise that these Secret Stretch Casual Utility Slim Pants were the number two best seller this week at Dressed for My Day. I shared them in every single blog post and this week’s YouTube video. Ha!

But these really are great pants. They run true to size, they’re lightweight and have a nice tapered leg. The Casual Utility Slim Pants come in regular, petite and tall sizes, and they’re available in two other nice colors, too. And I have all three!

Reversible Belt

I suspect Talbots’ deep price cuts have made this Reversible Belt a popular item with Dressed for My Day readers. I have this belt in black and gold, but the black and brown version is even more practical. This weekend the Reversible Belt is 50% off.

Textured 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan

I shared this Textured 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan in chalk rose in Thursday’s post. Unfortunately it’s available only in a few sizes in this pretty shade. But the Textured 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan does come in other essential colors as well. It runs true to size; I have a medium.

Textured 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan

This weekend you’ll get the Textured 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan for 60% off, plus you’ll receive FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase. Use code ALLIN.

Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pocket Capris

I featured these Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pocket Capris in this recent post. Several readers who have purchased these have, in fact, let me know that they like them every bit as much as I promised they would. They’re great for your evening walks around the neighborhood, but also suitable for running errands or just working around home.

Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pocket Capris

The Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pocket Capris run a bit large. I have a small and they fit nicely, whereas I normally wear an 8 or medium in such pants. They’re also available in black. This weekend they’re 50% off.

Pleat Back Denim Jacket

I received this Pleat Back Denim Jacket as gifted product from Christopher & Banks, but I’ve been surprised at how many times I’ve reached for it this spring instead of my Levi’s jacket. I like that it’s a little lighter in weight, but also slightly cropped, making it a nice topper for so many things. I wear it in a small.

I shared how I styled this jacket in this How I Really Dressed for My Day post. This weekend you’ll get this jacket and everything else at Christopher & Banks for 50% off.

Supima Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt

I’m constantly seeing these Supima Cotton V-Neck T-Shirts in the top sellers list. And for good reason. These are my absolutely favorite black, white and grey cotton t-shirts. They feel great on, have a slightly tapered silhouette, feature a v-neck and hold up to wear with a polished appearance.

Banana Republic SUPIMA Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt

A little strangely, I wear a small in the white and black tops, but need a medium in the grey. This weekend you’ll get the Supima Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt for about 1/3 off. But if you use your Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy or Athleta card, you’ll get an extra 15% off, 20% off for Luxe Cardholders. Use code BRCARD.

Zip-Up Stripe Sweatshirt Jacket

I also featured this Zip-Up Stripe Sweatshirt Jacket in my post on Elevated Athleisurewear. Also gifted to me from Christopher & Banks, I find myself reaching for this Sweatshirt Jacke frequently because I love the nautical blue stripes and the hood. I wear a small, and this weekend you’ll get the Sweatshirt Jacke for 50% off.

Patch Pocket Crop Chinos

These Patch Pocket Crop Chinos continue to trend here at Dressed for My Day. And they continue to trend with me, too! I find these to become more and more comfortable with wear. I don’t think it’s that the pants actually get any more comfortable. But I’m getting more used to wearing high rise pants.

Patch Pocket Crop Chinos

This weekend bottoms are marked down to $29.99 at Talbots, so these Patch Pocket Crop Chinos are marked down significantly. I wear my true size 8. They’re available in other colors and petite, plus and petite plus sizes.

Nic + Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants

Finally, these Nic + Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants also continued to trend this week at Dressed for My Day. These are my go-to black pants and I’ve been enjoying them year-round for almost two years now. They are a slim fitting pant with a mid rise and they run true to size. I wear an 8.

My November 2018 Favorites Black Pants
Nic + Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants

Right now the Nic + Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants are still 40% off and fully stocked. But they don’t go on sale often, so if you’re interested I’d grab them before the end of the long weekend.

What’s in my cart?

Here’s what I’ve recently ordered. Remember, I don’t keep everything I’ve ordered, so it may seem like a lot. Plus, I’m always checking out new products for you gals! I’m simply putting my selections in a shopping widget for convenience.

What’s on Sale that I’ve Featured

So much of what I’ve shown here on Dressed for My Day recently is marked down significantly. And most of that is shown above in the topsellers. But there is one item that I’ve shown over and over recently which has not been on sale in a long time, but is now. My Tory Burch T-Temple Butterfly Sunglasses are 25% off with code TOGETHER.

  1. I have to chuckle as you ask about returning to the salon. Why yes, who hasn’t? Not for a color correction, but a cut correction, more than once. My current stylist calls me hair obsessed! My feeling is this, with the prices for a cut and color, it should be exactly what we want. So, return for correction!
    Enjoy your weekend.
