Shopbop’s 20% off sitewide sale just launched! Use code SPRING20. It includes lots of my wardrobe staples, plus some fun new finds for warmer weather ahead, including the Alix of Bohemia pants with matching top seen here — sets are big for the season ahead, and this one is gorgeous breathable, lightweight, with just enough of a pattern (not too much to overwhelm!). I’m wearing with my beloved Altuzarra Watermill bag (included in the sale — goes with everything!) and my Ancient Greek Eleftheria Sandals (also included in the sale!) — these are my most-worn summer sandals. More on them below.

The promotion includes several of my absolute most-worn closet staples — items that tend to be difficult to find on sale, including:

+My favorite sunglasses (seen above)! Already well-priced at $75, but snag with an even better discount. I own these in three colors.

+Ancient Greek Eleftheria Sandals. These are my go-to summer sandal. I wore them more than my Hermes Orans last summer. They are the kind of thing you could pack to wear with everything on a trip — they work with shorts, swimwear, casual dresses, cocktail dresses. They have this fabulous barely-there quality to them, and I find them very well-made. Adore. A must!

+Hunza G suits! The square-neck is the classic and I love mine so much I gave one to my best friend for her 40th birthday — so flattering and easy to wear (OSFA). The fiery red-orange color is very on-trend for the season. Pair with ice blue pareo? I also own and love the Pamela style with thinner straps. (Review here!)

+SLVRLAKE London jeans. I own in the cropped length. This is a serious denim brand for serious denim lovers — exceptionally well-made. I think it was the ever chic Nicole Cassidy who drew me onto this bandwagon and now I own three pairs by the label. The London is their classic everyday not-too-skinny-not-too-relaxed fit. Run TTS — I’m 5’0 and they’re a tad long but have not yet had them hemmed; just wearing them as is.

+Frank & Eileen Patrick popover tee. I own this in white and it’s the perfect “throw on in lieu of a white tee” situation — a nice midweight cotton that feels fitted from elbow to wrist but has a slouchy lived-in fit elsewhere. Love the dropped shoulder seam.

+Naghedi St. Barths Medium tote. The best bag for mom life in the summer. The straps do stretch to fit over your arm, and the neoprene weave means you don’t need to be too precious about it. Pick a fun color, like this cheering tangerine hue (I own and have loved in yellow!), and don’t worry about being matchy-matchy! Fun little exclamation point that will zhush anything in your summer wardrobe, even jean shorts and a tee.

+Speaking of tees: a few of my favorites from Leset are included. I’m obsessed with all of their tees — the Margo is a great, mid-weight boxy fit, and the Kelly is a super-snug, ribbed must-have great for pairing with skirts or trousers — any time I’m wanting to balance out a fuller/more dramatic bottom (like the Zimmermann skirt below, also on sale and an extra 20% off!) with something fitted on top. (I think of the Kelly as my Jennifer Aniston tee — feels like something she’d wear on “Friends.”)

+Citizens Charlotte crop. Another fabulous everyday jean that I have heavy in my weekly rotation. I love the wash on this pair. Work without being hemmed for us petites. Full review here!

+Frank & Eileen Catherine sweatpants. My favorite cropped sweatpants! These are so easy to wear with a cool sneaker.

On the “new discoveries” end of the house:

+An easy polo dress for everyday wear – I imagine tossing this on with leather sandals or sneakers to run errands, pick up the kids, ferry them around, etc.

+Gorgeous toile from Cara Cara.

+Anything from Alix of Bohemia! The patterns, the breezy lightweight cotton — absolute dreams for warm weather. Matching sets are big for the season ahead — I love these pants with matching top (seen at top). A splurge but you can wear them separately to great effect. Imagine the pants with a white button-down or tee and sandals for museum-hopping, and then worn with the matching top and heels for an evening out. This top is spectacular, too.

+Anine Bing sweatshirt! A reader recently solicited my advice on how to wear athletic wear without looking like a mess. My big suggestion was matching sets from Beyond Yoga (some pieces included in the sale!) and then fun/unexpected sweatshirt on top, like these trendy Anine Bing ones.

+My Cami NYC polka dot dress I wore last weekend in Charlottesville! So fun and easy to wear – sexy but playful/elegant at the same time.
