You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.

Mother’s Day gifts (from a robe to an apron to a knife set to binoculars), as well as lots of goodies for, well, you.

These are a fun pair of slides if we’ve ever seen ’em.
Free People Patti Pants
A good price right here for some Free People high-waisted, cropped white pants.
Lululemon Energy Bra Longline
sports bra is a little longer than their usual sports bras (for a little extra coverage for those who may want to wear this sans T-shirt). Said one happy reviewer: “I haven’t at any moment found myself worrying about any nip slips!”

This GoWeave wrap dress can be worn as pictured here or with a
white T-shirt underneath.
Eider & Ivory Coolidge Duvet Cover Set, Full/Queen
Wayday’s come and gone, but there are still some excellent deals to be had at Wayfair. This gray cotton duvet cover is very calming. And has a zipper which makes it much less maddening to work with.

On the other end of the spectrum, our favorite splurgy
linen bedding is a little more affordable at the moment at Huckberry, where all Matteo bedding is 30 percent off.
J. Crew Garment Dyed Pocket T-Shirt
At press time, there were only sizes medium and large left, but this is such a nice tee (for such a nice price) that we had to include.

A strapless dress from Eloquii (as its description aptly says) “made for boomerangs.”
Eloquii Long Sleeve Wrap Dress
A slightly more everyday dress from Eloquii (with subtle white piping).

This amethyst ring from Coach features a delicate chain, for a “layered look.”
See by Chloe Eyelet-Embellished Leather Sandals
Joie Raheda Shirred Striped Linen Top
We can’t resist a tie-strap tank, we just can’t.
Solid & Striped Harlow Button-Embellished Swimsuit
We’re including the back view of this Solid & Striped bathing suit because of the buttons! (And because the front is quite straightforward.)
Bungalow Rose Wyaconda Throw Pillow
A shibori pillow that’ll make your couch feel a bit more “with it.”
Sur La Table Baker Signature Apron
Sur La Table’s clearance section is an extra 20 percent off, and there are some real goodies (that would be good gifts for
the mom who likes to cook) in there, like this baker’s apron.

Or this three-piece J.A. Henckles
knife set that features a chef’s, paring, and prep knife.
