We love a good product roundup around here. But we love seeing what our dear readers are actually buying even more. In this monthly recap, we share the bestselling finds across beauty, home and fashion—in case you missed them the first time around.
July was a big month for deals and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale was no exception. Our readers got their hands on this high-tech sensor mirror from Simplehuman—and for good reason. The tru-lux technology simulates natural sunlight so you’ll know exactly how your makeup will look once you step outside—no more foundation shade fails! Plus, its 5x magnification power is excellent for when you want to get rid of those pesky stray brow hairs.
The love for minimalistic gold jewellery continues, and this triple-strand Jenny Bird chain delivers everything you need to complete your That Girl look this summer (minus the matcha latte!). The combo round chain, triangular link chain and lean herringbone chain strikes the perfect balance of intricate and effortless. Bonus: You’ll be supporting a Canadian female-led business when you shop any of Jenny Bird’s essential pieces. Makes sense that this necklace was another one of our top picks from the Nordstrom sale this month!
We live for style around here, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. These cute Merrell sandals are perfect for getting around this summer with their high abrasion EVA midsole. Every step you take will be ultra-cushioned, so you can stroll endlessly without fear of blisters. Plus, they’re made of mostly recycled materials. Win-win!
Hot summer nights paired with margaritas doesn’t have to result in an awful hangover. The growing popularity of zero-proof spirits means there are so many options for non-alcoholic libations. Try mixing this tequila alternative from Ritual into your next mocktail. The tasty notes of grassy green pepper and that familiar burn to finish will have you reaching for this guilt-free option next time you want to treat yourself to a mixed bevvy.
Summer is notorious for being the season of weddings, so give your feet a break by swapping into some stylish sneakers instead of your typical heels. Step up your white sneaker game with these floral print kicks from Aldo for an easy way to get into the street-style bridal trend . But you don’t have to get hitched to try them out!
Linen isn’t just for chic cottagecore dresses. Take the light breathability to bed with this linen duvet set from Flax Home that’s naturally temperature-regulating. It’s no-fuss, sophisticated look will have you itching to stay in bed all day. Our editor-in-chief even selected the brand’s heirloom quilt on her summer shopping list , so you know it’s good. Safe to say the cotton to linen migration is definitely here to stay.
Your feet deserve comfort, and our readers loved these Ecco 2nd Cozmo sandals featured in one of July’s Ask The Kit columns . The full-grain leather and anatomically shaped footbed will make these sandals your next go-to when you’re in a dash to get to those summer sales!
Amazon Prime Day fell on July 12 and 13 this year and our readers managed to snag some serious bling for an equally irresistible price. These lightweight hoops from Swarovski were one of this month’s best deals, but you don’t need an excuse to gift yourself some gems. The white crystals deliver maximum sparkle and work with a variety of outfits.
If you’re working from home this summer, be sure to elevate your space with a signature scent to keep the good vibes going. This Nest candle was another selection from our Amazon Prime Day roundup and it’s the perfect addition to a home office, living area or bathroom. Light it up during your next Zoom call, when you’re soaking in the tub (or both!). Its blend of bamboo, hyacinth and white lotus will mentally transport you to a tropical oasis. Bliss!
