Unbelievable but true: 2022 is halfway over, which means it’s about time for me to run down the list of what y’all have been buying. As most of you know by now, the way I earn money with GOACA is through affiliate links—you snag a dress from Madewell, say, and I earn a commission. And because of this, I am able to see a lot of what you all purchase—and what you don’t return—which I always find fascinating. Usually the pieces that make this list are pretty classic—like these J. Crew patch pocket chinos.
Others items are harder to predict, like this bright Iro jacket.
This oversized cocoon cardigan from Jenni Kayne isn’t exactly in season at the moment, but it’s pretty much exactly perfect.
This knit blazer from Kule is such an easy way to look put-together, and even though I don’t usually like piping, I do like it here.
I was kind of surprised this cream-colored trench from Barbour made the list because it’s not the most practical, but it is so chic.
These sandals come in a number of good colors, but I do like this metallic, because it is both cool and deeply versatile.
These jeans have made this list more than once, and it’s easy to see why: they’re the perfect amount of slouchy—any more would be sloppy—and the darker wash is so good.
I don’t think I’ve ever done this post without an Emerson Fry caftan making the list. I’m particularly enchanted with this newish pink print.
A versatile, easy linen blend dress for throwing on whenever all summer long (also, just FYI, it comes in black too).
And finally, I dig the oversized cut on this perfect white button-down.
I always enjoy this post! I feel like if I bought every item, I’d have a great capsule wardrobe, which speaks to why I’m faithful to this blog.
Also, Kim, I appreciate how open you are about earning money from the links you post. Your transparency is another reason I love GOACA. Thanks, Kim, and everyone!
I don’t know if it will end up working out but I struggle with dresses and yet have been wanting an easy summer dress, so that linen one is on the way to my house to see if it works. I love the sandals too but they are a bit beyond my sandal budget. Thanks for this good list!
Debating the same dress for a 10 day trip (in black). Can’t see a reason why it wouldn’t be great to own so may be gearing up for a (rare) purchase! Kim has the best eye.
I have the Kule knit blazer (in cream) and it is perfect. I do look like I’m heading out to play cricket when I wear it with cream jeans, but I can live with that. Ta.
I have been very happy with the Treasure & Bond items I’ve bought from Nordstrom, including the plaid shirt featured a few months ago. High quality and very reasonable prices, in my opinion — downright cheap when on sale. And Nordstrom is just the best regarding service.
You’ve trained us to have a good eye, Kim!
The best thing about that EF caftan (other than the lovely hue) is that it’s a few inches shorter than most of their long caftans, but still longer than their short caftans. It could even work for those of us who are vertically challenged. I might have to go for it.
Is the EF caftan something that can be worn other than a beach cover up? It is hot in Miami and this looks so nice and cool.
The Iro jacket is an unexpected find. Can anybody speak to the sizing on it? Runs small? Runs large? French sizing always intimidates me.
with iro i have found that the 38 is comparable to an american size 6. that being said, i find that iro runs slim in the arms so depending on body type and work out habits some might want to size up one. If you’re super muscly you may need even more. (this one might not be for the elite tennis players out there, hahaha) hope this helps a little!
Agree with Tamara regarding arms. Size up if you can.
