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.
We dug up a bunch of on-sale stuff to get you excited for spring, including sandals, lightweight jackets, knee-baring dresses, as well as a few Mother’s Day gift ideas, because, well, it’s coming.
Could it be?! More Rodin Olio Lusso face oil on sale? The culty rejuvenating face oil is on sale in a lovely geranium and orange blossom blend that’s ideal for oily skin.
As well as in a “sensual” lavender that works for all skin types.
A little floral (and machine-washable!) number from Sanctuary.
A pretty blue-and-white-striped shower curtain to give the bathroom a little pep in its step.
This lovely $6 bowl from Mikasa would be great to serve your guests nuts or a coupla’ kumquats.
A baby blue delight from kicky plus-sized line Eloquii.
Plus, some high-waisted party pants.
And now’s as good a time as ever to get your food storage situation in order with this 18-piece set from Rubbermaid.
Get your shoes in order, too.
And this Silent Down jacket, which we saw a lot of this past winter.
And some Silent Down for the fellows.
Meanwhile, around these parts, any little guy or gal worth the Uppababy she’s riding in owns this nubby Patagonia fleece jacket.
Some high-waisted (and butt-flattering) carpenter shorts from Dickies.
It’s a little bit Nadia Comaneci circa 1976, but this Adidas bodysuit is pretty cool.
An adidas ringer tee in a very on-trend light purple.
A truly excellent ’70s-y denim jacket from Wrangler.
And a sweet, scalloped bralette from Cosabella.
If your little lady needs some party shoes.
This is a very good price for a striped bikini from Brazilian bathing-suit line Haight. (Plus, if it’s your first order on Matches, you can get an extra 15 percent off.)
It’s hard to see here, but this cream-colored Marysia one-piece (with a tie back) is adorned with light beige stripes.
Just the sweetest pink and green gingham pouch there ever was.
In our scramble to find the best things at Nordstrom’s spring sale yesterday, we missed these Madewell Emmett wide-leg pants in “Americana Red.”
And this colorful Topo Designs backpack.
And for today (Friday) only, some of the best-reviewed hypoallergenic pillows on Amazon are on sale, too.
This pale pink side table would make a nice nightstand.
And while this chevron jute rug is not from Jonathan Adler, it’s very elegant and does not look like it costs $57.
