Insomniac Sale Picks: Pastel Tops and Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Catherine requested a few picks for pastel tops and dresses, so here we go:

lands end pastel shirt

Land’s End No Iron Shirt – was $49, now select colors $24.99

I expected to find more pastel button-fronts, but LE definitely had the best options. This wrinkle-resistant shirt comes in this lovely lavender as well as pale citron, pale pink, and baby blue. Available in sizes 2 – 18. Size availability varies by color. Also in petite, tall, and plus sizes.

woolovers pastel sweater

Woolovers Silk/Cotton V-neck Sweater – was $34, now $30.60
with code REFDDY

I think of sweaters as “tops,” so I’m throwing this one in for those of you who also lump blouses, shirts, and sweaters together! Woolovers’ silk/cotton blend is lightweight and perfect for spring wear. This simple V-neck comes in 23colors, including this pale blue, pale pink, lilac, mint, pistachio, and other lovely pastels. Available in sizes S – XL. XL fits US size 16-18. Not a lot of similar options in speciality sizes, but this V-neck comes in lilac in petite and plus sizes.

pastel shift dress

LOFT Mixed Eyelet Club Dress – was $89.50, now $53.70
with code SHAREIT

Can’t get more spring-y than butter yellow eyelet, can ya? This 100% cotton shift dress is machine washable, and will look equally lovely with a cardigan for work or denim jacket for weekend. Available in this yellow as well as coral or white in sizes 00 – 18, including petite and tall sizes. Size availability varies by color. Also check out LOFT’s crop illusion dresses in yellow and coral for other options. This sheath comes in a yellow-y citron in sizes 16W – 26W.

sheer pastel blouse

Caslon Sheer Print V-neck Blouse – was $48, now $14.90

This particular color is listed as “Burgundy Purple,” but reads as a lovely dusty pink to me. Layer it over a light tank to brighten the color further. Machine washable, and great for dressy or casual looks. Available in this print as well as a navy/white version and black/white version in sizes XS – XL. Listing says this includes petite sizes, but that may be in stores only. This blouse with a similar print is available in 1X – 3X.

lavender stripe dress

Halogen Stripe Fit and Flare Dress – was $98, now $58.80

Such a fun use of striped panels in this design, and if you look closely you’ll see that the fabric has a tweedy texture. Available in this lavender as well as black/gray stripes or black/gray tweed in sizes 0  -16. Size availability varies by color. Listing says this includes petite sizes, but that may be in stores only. This lavender dress has a similar shape and comes in sizes 12 – 26W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for pastel tops and dresses:

  1. Talbots – Pretty pastels that aren’t too saccharine. This cross-dyed linen shirt is so classy.
  2. J.Crew – Sweaters, shirts, and knit tops in lovely pastels.
  3. Loft – In addition to the options above, lots of textured pastels like this lace shift dress.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Comfy, Funky Shoes

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Diane requested a few picks for some bold, funky shoes that are also comfortable, so here we go:

otbt springfield

OTBT Springfield – was $105, now $29.11 – $99

This style is an OTBT classic, so if you love the shape but don’t dig this color or the tooled leather detailing, fear not. You have 28 other choices from metallic leather to floral textile to nubby tweed. This shoe is highly rated overall, but sounds like a few styles have some quality issues that can be addressed by contacting OTBT directly. We sold these at Corset when I was working there, and I never saw any construction or materials issues myself. Available in U.S. sizes 5.5 – 11. Size availability varies by color. Want something flatter, or need a wide or narrow width? This pair of Trotters has a similar design. For closed back, try these Propets.

slip on sneaker

Comfortview Dana Slip-On Sneaker – was $75, now $39.77 – $47.62

I was thrilled to find this option, since patterned slip-on sneaks are SUPER trendy right now and Comfortview shoes include design features that the Aldo and Steve Madden versions surely lack. With this pair, you get a memory foam insole, comfort grip, and a variety of widths. And they’re vegan-friendly! Available in this snake print as well as solid black, solid silver, or solid white in U.S. sizes 7 – 12, including wide widths. For smaller sizes in snake, try this pair.

bernie mev sandals

Bernie Mev Fame Sandals – was $80.95, now $56.85 – 77.95

I’ve been fascinated by stretchy woven Bernie Mev shoes for about a year now. Several comfort-focused shoe retailers stock this brand, and the shoes get high marks for comfort from a variety of customers. They’re synthetic, so vegan-friendly, and this pair has a sturdy platform with a slight incline. If this gray pair bores you, this style is also available in two bright multicolored versions, pewter, bronze, black with white flecks, and solid black. Available in Euro sizes 36 – 41. Couldn’t find similar construction in wide, but this pair has a similar shape and is available in C/D widths.

clarks claribel

Clarks Claribel Fame – was $275, now $127.49
with code VETS

Huh. Two pairs with “fame” in the name tonight. Totally unintentional. These Clarks may be the closest thing to a flatform that I’ve ever posted. There’s an incline there, but it’s very slight. This pair is quite chunky, and if you’ve got light skin that ankle strap will definitely cut off your leg line … but you’ll certainly look modern and chic. Worn with full-length pants that cover the strap, these will just look like sleek wedges. Available in this black as well as a putty gray in U.S. sizes 6 – 10, including some wide widths. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for comfy, funky shoes:

  1. Tsubo – I don’t wear mine much anymore, but the brand still gets high marks for quality, comfort, and eye-catching design.
  2. Camper – Lots of quirky, fun designs especially in the Twins line. Warning: Campers run narrow, so they won’t be comfy for anyone with wide feet.
  3. Miz Mooz – Comfy styles with a retro flair. Love these spiral-design sandals.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Longer and Midi Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Pedro requested a few picks for colorful modest, longer skirts so here we go:

lands end skirt

Land’s End Pattern Knit Matte Jersey Skirt- was $59, now $19.99 – $29.99

You can count on Land’s End to provide a few below-the-knee skirt options every single season. This style comes in three neutral prints, but I love this bold teal with navy dots. Adding more navy is a natural, but more jewel tones will look amazing with this skirt. Available in sizes XS – L as well as petite and plus sizes. Another great LE option is this knit dressing skirt in cornflower in regular and plus sizes, though it’s not currently on sale.

boden below the knee skirt

Boden Pandora Skirt - was $148, now $103.60
with code 9F2G

Definitely the splurge of the night, but this is a lined 100% silk skirt in a timeless shape and color. Such a perfect complement to springtime sweaters, blouses, and floaty scarves. Coral available in sizes 2 – 16. Also available in solid turquoise and three lovely florals. Size availability varies by color and is a bit patchy, but more options available in long lengths. Here’s a similar skirt in vibrant coral in sizes 14W – 24W. Prefer a slim skirt instead? Boden has a colorblocked below-the-knee pencil skirt in four colors, and this midi pencil comes in three colors in plus sizes.

midi pencil skirt

JC Penney Print Midi Skirt – was $36, now $24.99

Speaking of pencil skirts, how gorgeous is THIS one? I know it’s got a black background, but that vibrant print means you can pair it with just about any color in your closet and look chic and pulled-together. Plus, it’s washable! Available in sizes S – XL. Couldn’t find anything super similar, but Eloquii has some great printed midi skirts in plus sizes. Prefer a solid-colored midi pencil? Regular sizes here, plus here, and petite here.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful modest, longer skirts:

  1. eShakti – Hem lengths on skirts and dresses are customizable, but most default to below-the-knee anyway. Love the bold, colorful print on this wrap skirt. Sizes 0 – 36W!
  2. Modcloth – Mainly prints and mainly full/pleated shapes, but SO many lovely options.
  3. Land’s End – LE’s dresses are getting a little short, but most skirts remain knee-length or longer.
  4. Nordstrom – Bold midis in sleek pencil styles and floaty full styles.
