Top Ten in June 2020

Greetings on this fine Thursday morning! Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes yesterday. I didn’t have time to reply to everybody, but please know that I read and appreciate them all.

It’s time for my Top Ten in June. This is when I round up the most popular blog posts and retail products among JLS readers during the previous month.

My monthly Top Ten is a regular feature on the blog, and I always find it interesting to see what resonated most with you all.


Based on Google Analytics, these were my top 10 posts during the month of June — but not necessarily the posts I published last month.

Sometimes older posts still get a lot of traffic from Pinterest or Google, so they continue to rank in the top 10, even through they were written earlier. I figure they deserve a mention if they’re still getting ranked.

10. Black Tank Dress + Gold Sandals

This dress is from Everlane, and I styled it early on during our 22 Days of Summer Fashion style series last month. I actually wore this out to dinner last night!

The material is lightweight and breathable, and the dress skims the body without clinging. The seaming is really nice, and the straps perfectly cover my favorite bra. It also comes in 3 other colors, and it retails for just $58. It’s TTS; I have the small.

9. Two Stylish Ways to Wear White Shorts

This post was a collab with Nordstrom, and I styled these white twill shorts two ways. Unfortunately, the white ones are selling out, but they do come in other colors.

Also, this stripe sweater is really fun for mild summer days or evenings by the pool. It’s fully stocked, and also comes in ivory and black. Both pieces run true to size.

8. Short Sleeve Sweater Outfit

I was kind of surprised this post ranked, although I’m not sure why. I do like the outfit a lot.

I kept the sweater, but I haven’t worn it yet. After looking at these pictures, I realized it’s rather boobalicious, lol! Maybe it’s the camera angle, I don’t know, but suddenly I feel a bit reticent to wear it.

At any rate, if you like it, it’s now on sale for $18!

7. What I Wore Lately + A Few Try-Ons

These posts always rank in my monthly Top Ten, and this time I combined the two regular features since my weekday slots were full with 22 Days of Summer Fashion.

This one contains a bunch of try-ons from LOFT and Boden that are still available and on sale this weekend, so it’s worth looking at if you missed it, or if you want a refresher.

6. Jeans and a Tee

Straight Ankle Jeans and a Tee

This might be my personal favorite outfit from the month. I just love the simplicity of it, and the updated version of a simple jeans and white tee outfit.

Unfortunately, all of the pieces are on the pricier side of the spectrum, although I was able to score the three key pieces — jeans, tee, and sandals — when they were on sale.

Right now, the t-shirt is 30% off, and if you are in the market for a high quality white tee, I highly recommend it. It’s also available in grey and black, and I recommend sizing up; I have the medium.

5. Summer Color Crush: Hot Pink

This outfit is another one of my favorites, plus I just love the backdrop of the photos. When Alison and I saw these flowers, we immediately wanted to photograph this outfit with them.

And I have good news! These gold sandals have been restocked, and the price is AMAZING! They come down to just $32.38 with code SPRING60.

They’re very comfortable for a slide, and I love the design of the strap across the foot. They have just a slightly molded footbed, too, so there’s a wee bit of support.

The gold is highly versatile, but they also come in a few other neutral colors as well as leopard. They run TTS; I have the 8.

Also, these jeans are on sale at Evereve. I really like the 25″ length. Definitely size down, though. I’m in the 4.

4. Try-On Haul: LOFT, Old Navy, Talbots, Ann Taylor & Nordstrom

This was my biggest try-on haul of the month, and there are so many goodies in here. Many are still available, so definitely check it out if you’re doing some shopping this weekend.

3. Do’s and Don’ts for Wearing Shorts

This post from May still gets a lot of Google and Pinterest traffic. It’s worth a re-read if you struggle with shorts.

2. Are Skinny Jeans Out of Style?

And this post was written back in March, but it’s been really popular on Pinterest, so it was actually my 2nd most popular post last month!

The answer, of course, is no. But I explain how to select skinny jeans that are on trend and how to style them in a way that keeps them fresh and modern.

1. Utility Shorts + Leopard Face Mask

It seems appropriate that the post that launched 22 Days of Summer Fashion was the most popular.

I couldn’t resist putting on a mask for my first outfit of the series, since they are definitely going to be a symbol of this crazy year when we look back on it after Covid is under control and this is all behind us. Plus, this one goes so well with my outfit!

As an aside, I don’t think I’ve ever styled so many flat shoes in a month! That’s definitely another sign of the times… flat shoes and face masks. (At least I’m not styling loungewear!)

Okay, moving on to popular products…


These were the 10 most popular products across my blog and social channels last month. They’re listed in typical Top Ten order, with the most popular one last.

10. Athleta Soho Skort

I’ve never been much of a skort girl, but I’m really loving this one. It has such a nice fit, it’s very comfortable, and it also comes in some other pretty colors if the plain black isn’t for you. It’s TTS; I’m in the 6.

9. Paige Cindy High Waist Destroyed Hem Straight Leg Jeans

I’ve been loving these jeans lately, and it looks like some of you have too! They do go on sale from time to time, so I recommend holding out if you aren’t dying to have them right away.

8. LOFT Tie Front Sweater

This lightweight tie front sweater is such a gorgeous shade of coral. Even though it’s summer, we get some cool evenings, and I sometimes like to wear a long-sleeve sweater with shorts.

7. Madewell Tomboy V-Neck Tank

This is one of my favorite casual tops to throw on with shorts or this skort. The fabric is a little more substantial than most, and the cut is perfection.

I love the width of the straps and the shape of the v-neck, the straight split hem and the trim around the neck and armholes. It’s also the right length (24″) for wearing tucked or untucked.

6. Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific Ribbed Tank

Sorry to say, this one is selling out. It’s really cute with jeans and jean shorts. It also comes in a navy and white stripe, as well as a solid pink and solid neon yellow/green.

5. Lou & Grey Tweedknit Drawstring Dress

This popular dress keeps going in and out of stock. It’s TTS, and if you can snag your size, you should! It’s currently 40% off with HBDUSA.

4. Sanctuary 5 Pack Fashion PPE Masks

Sometimes I just wear the disposable kind, but when I want to be cute (if it is possible to be cute wearing a mask) I wear one of these. Sanctuary has recently released some new patterns that are really fun for summer, and Anthropologie carries some other patterns.

They also make masks for men and kids. See them all HERE.

also wearing: Everlane cap sleeve tee and WHBM utility shorts

3. Old Navy Loose Linen-Blend Jersey Henley Top

This linen henley is lightweight and breathable with an easy, relaxed fit, and it has some nice details. It’s true to size and comes in some other colors as well. Right now it’s marked down to $24 + an additional 20% off at checkout.

also wearing: Kut from the Kloth Catherine boyfriend shorts

2. Leith Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

This dress probably needs no introduction. It’s been one of the most popular dresses in the blogosphere for going on 4 years, now! I do recommend sizing up. I have the medium.

And in first place! Drum roll please . . .  🥁

1. Sanctuary Laura V-Neck Linen Tee

It cracks me up that this top is in first place, as it’s been almost sold out ever since I first shared it at the beginning of June. I guess y’all are buying other items once you click through, but it clearly got a lot of traction.

I have looked and looked for it on other sites — usually Sanctuary tops can be found at multiple retailers — but I haven’t had any luck.

And that’s a wrap! Which posts from June were your favorites, and did you score any of these Top 10 products?

  1. Jo-Lynne, I purchased the blue/white striped sweater from Nordstrom and I love it! I’m actually wearing it at work today with my white skinny jeans. After work, I’m going to change into my white jean shorts and relax with a glass of wine. Thanks for all that you do and for all your help in making me a bit more stylish! Have safe and happy 4th of July!

  2. Hi Jo-Lynne! 
       Glad to hear you enjoyed your birthday dinner! I have a question about the Madewell Tomboy tank. Is it a little loose? Are you wearing a small? I’m wondering if I should size down as I have narrow shoulders. Thanks for your help and for this post! 

  3. I’m still waiting on the Lou and Grey drawstring dress.  It was suppose to be here yesterday but now says running late. I’m hoping for today and that it fits.  Our weather is finally suppose to get nice from the clouds and rain we’ve been having, starting tomorrow. I just love this dress on you.  It is perfect fit and makes you look so tan.  You really should be wearing it lots. 🙂  I also love the longer boyfriend jean shorts on you.  They just seem to fit you so great.  Keep wearing them. 🙂  

  4. Lower humidity sounds so refreshing!  How nice of Allison to pay for your beverages.  I ordered the Loft tie front sweater, really like it, and can’t wait for the temps to be where I can wear it.  Today I ordered the ON linen blend Henley top in bright coral with the hopes that it will replace a tee that I’ve had several years in a bright orange.  My top two posts were what your wore and try on hauls, and how to not look frumpy in shorts.  I hope you are having a great day!  The humidity is really awful here, so staying inside with the curtains open just enough to let a little light in, is what’s in order.

  5. Hi Jolynne,
    Happy belated!!! Was glad to hear the nice story about Alison, great idea!!
    I finally happened to check on the pink Sanctuary tee, and there was one left in my size!! I’m ecstatic!!
    Hope all is well with you. Thanks for the oasis of normal in strange times. God’s peace to you.

  6. There is just too much to Love on your posts. So many Beautiful Outfits and they look so Good on You!!

  7. My favorite Top 10 Post for June is the Black Dress you wore for your birthday. Looks super cute on you and I just ordered one!!
