It’s official: these are the hottest items of the month!

When I first started this blog a couple of years ago, the initial idea was simply to share street style inspo. NEVER did I intend to be pictured in every post! I also didn’t realize my buying skills would come in handy 😊 Fast forward to now, and it feels like I’m playing “store” every day. I love scouring the internet, doing “blog research,” and curating what I think are the hottest items for you. It’s kind of like my old Nordstrom buying days, when we would eagerly wait until the end of the day to see what sold — and we did this every single day. It’s one of the thrills of being a buyer … when you pick right, it feels really good!

So, when I started analyzing what you are loving this month, I decided the top 10 most popular items were worth sharing with you. The great news is everything is still available, and some things are even on sale. My suggestion for the hottest items is this: if anything catch your eye, grab it now. If you wait too long, the best items will be gone!

P.S. We’ve got big plans around here! I’m excited to announce that I’m starting a YouTube channel, and I can hardly wait. This week, I decided on the location which is our main floor office where the lighting is always good. I also picked the format for the first few videos, including what’s new & hot on my rolling rack, the secret to buying jeans (expanded), and of course, some fun street style inspo.

#1 The hottest item of all: Farm Rio dress

Farm Rio dress | Schutz sandals | Balenciaga bag

Farm Rio is on fire right now, and there are several pieces I just LOVE, including this dress that’s basically sold out everywhere … except here. Of all the hottest items right now, this is the best seller. I’ve shared it in several videos, including here, and now there’s a slipdress version in the prettiest shade of blue — click here and watch a video I made here. I found both dresses to run TTS. I’m wearing an XS, and I plan on having an inch hemmed on both of them.



#2 Norma Kamali LBD


J.Crew linen blazer | Black strapless dress – in stock here | Slip dress | Green sandal | Earrings | Necklace | YSL bag

Norma Kamali is another brand that’s super popular now, and I’m seeing this “Diana Gown” on everyone — and based on my experience, it looks good on many different body types. It’s available in many colors at Saks, Revolve and Nordstrom. Typically with rouching, it has a way of being very forgiving, making it extra flattering. The strapless dress I’m wearing runs a touch small, and as you’ll see in this video, I plan on always wearing something over it! It keeps selling out at $125 but I found it in stock at Revolve, and there area few sizes at Nordstrom.



#3 J.Crew linen blazer

J.Crew linen blazer | Mother denim | Schutz sandals | Heart bracelet | Cotton tank | Celine sunnies

J.Crew is another brand that’s looking really good right now. There are certain things I always gravitate towards there, including blazers, dresses and sweaters — you just can’t go wrong at J.Crew. I found that this stylish blazer runs a little roomy, and I’m wearing a size 2 for reference. It comes in extended sizes as well.



#4 L’Agence denim jacket

This denim jacket is one of the hottest items available right now. I realize it’s a little on the spendy side, but if you’re looking for the perfect denim jacket — this might be it. The wash is so good, faded but not too faded, and everyone who tries it on falls in love. It’s not bulky either, which results in a slimming fit that you’ll wear with basically every summer outfit!



#5 Rails Ellis top

The Rails Ellis top is a best-seller everywhere, and it’s also one of my personal favorites! It’s lightweight, and perfect for summer. Talk about versatile — it looks great with simple denim or even denim shorts, and I love it open almost like a jacket, or tied at the waist over a slip dress. It’s available in many colors at Nordstrom, Saks and Shopbop. It runs TTS, and I’m wearing an XS for reference.
