Your Weekend Shopping Headquarters – May 9-10

May 9, 2020

Happy Mother’s Day weekend! Be sure to check out my inner beauty post for a blessing for mothers…that I wrote just for you! And now let’s get on with the weekend’s shopping scoop. I’ve got great sales for you to check out, but first let’s see what’s trending at Dressed for My Day this week.

Your Shopping Headquarters May 9-10

In my Saturday morning Weekend Shopping Headquarters posts I share…

  • What Dressed for My Day readers are buying this week â€“ top selling items at my blog
  • Noteworthy Sales â€“ all the sales worth checking out, plus I may include my top picks from any given sale occasionally
  • What’s in My Cart â€“ items I’ve purchased this week (keep in mind I don’t keep everything I order!)
  • What’s on Sale â€“ I may alert you to items I’ve shown here at Dressed for My Day that are now discounted

What Dressed for My Day 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?

#1 – marled jersey knit jumpsuit

Evidently a good number of you decided to try out the marled jersey knit jumpsuit or romper that I shared in Monday’s post, Two Ways to Wear a Black Jumpsuit. That black jumpsuit also comes in blue, which I have also. The black one I showed in the post was a medium, but I ordered the small blue and like that size for me much better.

#2 – Nic+Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants

I couldn’t figure out why in the world so many readers had bought the next item since I haven’t shown them on the blog in a while. But now I know. My favorite black pants, the Nic+Zoe Wonderstretch Straight Leg Pants are marked down 40% off, but I bet that won’t last past the weekend. They’re also fully stocked in sizes. I wear my usual size 8, but it is a slim fit, so you might want to size up if you prefer a roomier fit.

If you’ve been eyeing these pants for a while, grab them. I’ve never seen them marked down this much before.

#3 – 1901 Stretch Cotton Twill Blazer (black or pink)

Likewise my favorite black blazer is marked down 50% off. It’s also available in pink. I recently purchased the navy blazer myself, and you’ll be seeing it here next week. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a classic black blazer you can wear year round, you might want to check out the 1901 Stretch Cotton Twill Blazer (black or pink).

#4 – 1901 Palm Trees Ocean Breeze Graphic Tee

This 1901 Palm Trees Ocean Breeze Graphic Tee is trending on Dressed for My Day this week. Last I checked, however, it was only available in a size x-small. I have a medium and it’s a close fit. They have a few other cute graphic tees that should pop up on this page if that one is sold out.

#5 – 1901 One-Button Linen Blend Blazer

You gals aren’t the only ones who bought the 1901 One-Button Linen Blend Blazer. I bought one, too! I love it. When it arrives, it is indeed a wrinkly mess. Ha! But don’t be dissuaded. I steamed all the wrinkles out of mine just fine. In full disclosure, I may not keep it, but only because I already have two linen blazers. But I will style it for the blog. I bought the 8, and it fits well. But if you are larger in the chest you might want to size up. Also the sleeves are long, so you’ll probably need to turn them up or have them altered at Nordstrom.

#6 – Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pockets Capris

I styled these Relaxed Restyled Zipper Pockets Capris a couple of weeks ago in this post, Elevated Athleisure Style for Spring. I know many of my readers do like Christopher & Banks clothing, and these are truly nice athleisure pants. I have mine in a size small.

#7 – The Cotton Short-Sleeve Popover Shirt

I’m a little surprised that The Cotton Short-Sleeve Popover Shirt from Everlane is still trending on the website, only because the sizes are so picked over. But it is still available in the very largest and smallest sizes. And I will continue to say that The Cotton Short-Sleeve Popover Shirt is the best made cotton shirt I own (out of about five!).

As Simple as a Popover
The Cotton Short-Sleeve Popover Shirt

White the white shirt is marked down 30%, the blue popover is available in a few additional sizes and just as well made and smart.

#8 – Denim Skirt

Evidently a number of you also purchased the Denim Skirt I shared in Wednesday post and YouTube video. I think you’ll love this classic cut Denim Skirt. I have mine in a size 6, by the way. That’s the size I wear in some Talbots jeans, too, so size accordingly.

#9 – Soma Wireless Bralette

I guess since we’re all staying home most of the time, it’s not surprise that the Soma Wireless Bralette continues to trend with Dressed for My Day readers. I’m wearing one of mine right now! I absolutely love these bras. I’ll tell you up front, it’s a little hard to get on at times. I had to ask my husband to help me the other day. Ha! But once it’s on, it feels like a dream! And I don’t have a hard time getting it off at all.

#10 – Modern Ankle Jeans

And finally I guess a few more of you are getting on board with the straight leg ankle jeans because the Modern Ankle Jeans are the number ten best seller of the week. The link that’s trending is the dark wash, which I’ve shown below, but you might want to check out the lighter wash selection, too.

Special FASTer Way to Fat Loss offer for TEACHERS

Attention all teachers!!! I’ve got a great offer just for you. If you’re feeling like you’ve caught the COVID-10 (that’s what I’m calling the 10 pounds we’re all gaining from staying home and eating comfort food) or you just need to move a little more, gain some strength or do something special for yourself, consider joining the FASTer Way to Fat Loss for a special round just for teachers. It begins this Monday, May 11, and they’re knocking 25% off the price as a Teacher Appreciation gift. Yay!

FASTer Way to Fat Loss round for Teachers Only

I absolutely love the lifestyle skills I’ve picked up from this program and I’ve been hitting it hard again this past week. So you can do the program along with me and I’ll be glad to answer any questions or provide tips if needed. But you’ll also have a support group, a physical trainer, a nutritionist and more to get you up to speed.

The FWTFL resources are amazing. I love the app. It’s full of at home or gym workouts, including kick boxing (I did one this week), strength training, HIIT cardio workouts, barre workouts (I did my first this week and loved it), yoga stretches and even cycling HIIT workouts. Plus you get meal plans, menus, recipes, access to all the experts and more.

Be sure to use this particular link in order to access the Teachers Only program which begins Monday. Yes, this is an affiliate link and I do earn a commission from your registration. Thanks so much for shopping through all my affiliate links and supporting my work.

Okay, that’s it for today’s shopping headquarters. Thanks so much for stopping in! Have a great weekend.

Are you content? It’s not easy being content in a world that is constantly telling you that you need just one more thing to be happier. I certainly don’t want this blog to contribute to feelings of discontent for you.

But we can learn to be content even when all the messages tell us to be otherwise. And it is indeed something we must learn. Being content doesn’t start with denial. It begins with gratitude to the God who provides for all of our needs. This weekend let’s practice gratitude when we are tempted to feel discontented.

I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. ~ Philippians 4:11b-12

Spread the love

  1. I just received a beautiful boquet of flowers from my Son and Granddaughters. Can a person be more blessed than that? God is good to us. My heart goes out to those who miss their Moms.
    I am beginning to like the Hedi look in jeans. Sandra Dee wore them way back in the fifties.
