Happy weekend, friends! It’s hard to believe the end of the school year is around the corner – I’m definitely not ready and have my hat off to parents who have summer camp & vacation schedules lined up months in advance!

I wanted to share a few sales I’m shopping this weekend and some recent buys included in the deals. First up is this chic BR Factory find that checks many boxes for being practical, forgiving, multi-purpose and easy to maintain (I machine wash + air dry)! And happens to be bump & nursing-friendly. I love that it grazes over my figure, rather than cling to the belly & rear like rib knits often do. See this video where I also threw it on unbuttoned as a pool cover up.

BR Factory

The Deal: 50-70% off sitewide + extra 25% off at checkout.

BR Factory has been worth checking out, especially after regular Banana Republic price points keep climbing. I’ve had some pretty solid factory over the years from petite blazers to work-friendly dresses (this belted dress is another popular pick!). See their new arrivals here.


The Deal: JEAN24 for 20% off sitewide + get a free Kissu Lip Mask on orders $100+ (after discount)

Restocking on their lightweight Water Cream which is my go-to summer face moisturizer, and both Nick and I have been really liking their Indigo Calming cream. This latter one is a luxuriously rich moisturizer that’s fragrance free and safer for sensitive, eczema-prone skin with redness or irritation.

Ann Taylor

The Deal: 40% off full price items + extra 15% off.

Stunning wide leg palazzo pants with gold sailor buttons. Cream color is fully stocked in petites with great reviews! See a video of the navy color on me.

Pieces I’m eying from petite new arrivals:

Tile print midi dress – such a pretty, soft blue & white palette!

Crepe wide leg ankle pant

Striped bubble top seems like a versatile option for summer work wear with short sleeves

Madewell jeans 24 petite, knit vest xs c/o, crossbody bag c/o, old J. Crew sandals (similar)


The Deal: 25% off with code B6Y9. While Boden’s petite womens sizing is a little big for me, I’ve had a few Mini Boden pieces patiently waiting in my cart for a sale! Their vibrant, fun girls designs cannot be beat. I usually size up so Nori can get an extra year of wear, and to account for shrinkage from 100% cotton.

Cross back dress. This has been getting so many compliments!

Short sleeved jersey dress + Twirly ballerina dress for comfy everyday pieces.

They also have matching mom & me or matching sibling pieces.

J. Crew

The Deal: 40% off sitewide & extra 60% off sale styles.

Linen vest – This fits a little big on me but is so cute, I wanted to share for others. I love the more feminine scoop neckline. Wear with denim or coordinating linen shorts.

Long sleeve maxi cover up – Wore this all week on vaca for a little extra coverage from the sun, and also belted as a cover up dress (see here). This is a semi-sheer looser fit long shirt, and does not have any waist definition to it.

This swimsuit remains my most comfortable and flattering bottoms for a non-flat tummy. I love the fuller coverage and can freely move around and play with the kids in this suit.

J.Crew coverup xxs, bikini top xs, bottoms xxs and wicker bag, Madewell sandals 5.5


The Deal: 25% off select summer essentials and an extra 25% off sale items with code LONGWEEKEND.

Perfect vintage jeans in “vintage canvas.” My favorite wide crop jeans in a beautiful neutral ecru are on sale! Just got mine in and it fits just like my Altoona wash pair, except these have a little stretch and are so comfortable. With frayed edges I always apply some anti-fray to the hem (some have also suggested using clear nail polish in a pinch)

See my recent post for 5 recommendations to check out, including the perfect chunky earring!


The Deal: 25% off sitewide. A few basics still in my weekly rotation:

High rise undies. Although these were not the winners of my underwear post many years ago, I’ve re-discovered these after having Rio and have repurchased many times! Compared to one-size Chantelles, these in xxs are fitted on me with a light, comfy level of shaping at the tummy.

Great basic cotton looser cut tees in a petite-friendly length. I size up to XS.

The Deal: 50% Off Tees, Shorts & Dresses.

This dress has been a runway EP reader favorite! The gauzy 100% cotton fabric feels nice quality, soft and comfy, and the same material is available in many other pieces like a little girls set for family matching. The only downside is Gap sizing starts in XS petite and up, so smaller framed ladies will find their womens items to fit big.


The Deal: 30% off sitewide. See my updated Levi’s guide – the light baked color below is fully stocked!

Gap sweater xs petite (similar in cream), Levi’s wedgie straight jeans in “fully baked” 24×26, Edited Pieces shoes (very similar), YSL Kate sunglasses


The Deal: 20% off almost everything. You can see my recent try-ons here! While I haven’t tried on many of their wedding guest styles, they have a really big selection of dressier pieces in petite!
