It’s time for another roundup of last month’s PMT Best Sellers! These are the items fellow PMTers shopped the most. There are some great summer items in the mix that are extremely affordable! 🙂
Check out all past best sellers HERE if you want some of the best of the best items.
SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes.
1. Target High-Rise Pull On Shorts – size XS, they run HUGE
I reviewed these recently in the Reviews of Comfy Shorts Under $18, and it makes sense they’re a top seller this month because who wouldn’t want comfy, inexpensive shorts? These are lightweight and breathable, with an elastic waistband (yessssss!) and pockets! They run a bit short with a 3″ inseam, but like with most “soft shorts,” I wear them a tad lower, so a 3″ inseam acts more like 4″.
The waistband is SO stretchy that it extended comfortably around my 32 week pregnant belly. Haha! I laughed out loud when that happened.
They come in olive and black. Find them HERE.
If they shrink in the wash, you can extend them back with a clothing steamer since the steam relaxes the fibers. Ironing does the same.
If you want longer than a 3″ rise, there’s another soft short option HERE.
2. Dear Mushka Gold Circle Pendant Necklace
This has been my most worn necklace for the last several years. It goes with basically everything and does an amazing job of pulling together an outfit, despite its simplicity. It’s actually a locket, so you can put a picture in it! See ways I’ve worn it HERE. Or just go through any post on my blog and you’ll find it. 😆 I literally wear it all the time! Get it HERE.
NOTE: I found the original chain a little fragile, so I swapped it out with a chain from an old necklace I had. You can find other chains at craft stores or on Amazon. My new chain is 34″.
3. KUT from the Kloth Helena Denim Jacket – size M, runs small
This is the denim jacket I’ve talked about before that is the comfiest denim jacket I’ve ever tried. It’s nearly twice as expensive as options from Old Navy or Target, but this is one of those things where you get what you pay for. This is super lightweight and COMFY to wear. It’s super duper soft and stretchy. So, so good! See ways I’ve worn it HERE. It comes in 4 washes HERE. I wear the color Sweet, which unfortunately is sold out at the moment but it’s been around for years so I’m hopeful it’ll be restocked again. Other washes are available though! Runs pretty small. I wear size M and it’s quite fitted.
4. Target Sleeveless Midi Dress
This comfy, sleeveless midi dress is a STEAL at $20 (and less during the recent sales!) and comes in 8 colors. I haven’t tried it personally, but it’s got 189 reviews and 4.6 stars! Definitely worth checking out for a chic but casual and comfy summer piece.
It comes in several lighter solid colors that are pretty for summer, and 4 prints like camo and tie dye. Check them out HERE.
5. Natori Feathers Strapless Bra
I got this bra a few years ago and it’s been a GAME CHANGER. The first strapless bra I haven’t absolutely hated! It stays up all day, I don’t have to fuss with it, and I actually forget I’m wearing a strapless bra. There’s another one with even better reviews by Wacoal HERE but I haven’t tried it because my size usually isn’t available.
6. Old Navy Jersey Swing Dress – I wear M
I LOVE these jersey swing dresses. I call them “pajama dresses” because they are SO soft, stretchy, and comfy that you could sleep in them. 😆 I’ve been wearing them for years and continue to love them. They always have new colors and prints, and currently there’s a FANTASTIC black/white striped version, along with a bunch of florals, a geometric diamond print one, and navy/white stripes. Check them out HERE. I wear them in size M.
Note that they are a swing silhouette, which doesn’t have a whole lot of shape or structure. There are other dresses elsewhere with this “pajama dress” material that provide more structure, like at least with an empire waist or cross front to give some more definition and shape. If you try these the swing silhouette, make sure you wear them with a long pendant necklace or statement necklace to “anchor” and “ground” the shapeless and soft garment.
7. Target Tank Dress
These are fairly similar to the Old Navy swing dresses, except sleeveless! And they come in 10 colors! These are extremely affordable starting at $15 and sometimes as low as $10 on sale! Check out the colors and see if they’re on sale right now HERE.
8. Amazon 3/4 Sleeve Crew Neck Gathered Blouse
This has made the best seller list many, MANY months in a row. Always surprised how much y’all love it, but glad that you do! Comes in 6 prints and 4 solid colors. Great for work looks and elevated casual looks. Check out 6 ways I styled this top for spring HERE. See all the colors and prints this top comes in HERE. I’m wearing Navy Vine Leaf in size 6.
In the pic above I’m wearing it with the blue paper bag waist pants. If you’re interested in those, they’re a super cheap option for spring that’s very stretchy. I wear them in size S. See them in several colors HERE.
9. Amazon Swing Dress
This is another similar dress to the Old Navy swing “pajama dresses.” I haven’t tried from this exact seller, but they have over 3,000 reviews and 4.2 stars. I have a few older tank swing dresses from another seller. My experience with Amazon versions is that they tend to be a tad thinner than Old Navy ones, which means they show my lumps and bumps a bit more easily. They also don’t hold shape and drape QUITE as well, though good enough that I still own a few! But, every seller is different, and sometimes you’ll find these types of dresses on Amazon that are really good quality and quite thick, so they’re worth a try.
One huge plus with these is they come in a whopping 28 solid colors (!!) and 12 prints, ranging from XXS to 3XL.
10. KUT from the Kloth Chloe Rolled Boyfriend Denim Shorts – I wear size 8
This is another pair from my Reviews of Comfy Shorts Under $18. Soft and stretchy denim shorts–always gotta love those! I’m usually size 6 or sometimes 4 in KUT jeans, but sized up to 8 in these shorts. If you’re worried about sizing, remember Nordstrom offers free shipping and free return shipping on all orders, so I always buy multiple sizes and send back whatever doesn’t work.
The leg openings are 11″ when laid flat, the rise is 10″ and the inseam is 4.5″ cuffed and 7.5″ uncuffed.
