Current Express Favorites Poll | On the Daily EXPRESS


Current Express Favorites Poll

As promised, I polled a few of my chronic Express-shopping friends last weekend to find out their current favorites in preparation for what we hope will be another storewide 40% off sale for Labor Day weekend. It's all speculation at this point, but I want my shopping list ready to go so I can shop early and avoid something selling out before I get to it. So read on for what my friends are loving lately and get the details on how to follow them and keep up with all of their latest looks.

Erin's Current Favorites:

Find Erin on Instagram and Snapchat: @erinerinhartman. You can check out her favorites from the Memorial Day Sale here and see what's changed!

1. Military Jacket:

2. Slim Flare Jeans:

3. French Terry Jacket:
Erin hasn't posted an #OOTD with this on Instagram yet, but I did catch her wearing this on Snapchat recently!  In the meantime here's an outfit I recently wore with this jacket. (First posted here.)

Skye's Current Favorites:

Follow Skye on Instagram and Snapchat (@skye815), and get all her outfit details via her page. For comparison to her May Favorites go here.

1. Striped One Eleven Tee:

2. Black Striped One Eleven Tee:

Just a note: One Eleven items are often excluded from Coupons and Promo codes, so it's possible they may be excluded from a Labor Day sale as well. But at least these tops are under $25 so full price is still pretty affordable.

3. Slim Flare Jeans

Rachelle's Current Favorites:

Follow Rachelle's blog PinkSole or find her on Instagram and Snapchat (@pinksole_rach). For her last round of favorites see this post.

1. Barcelona Cami (Especially loving Spiced Purple)

Carylee's Current Favorites:

1. Military Jacket:

2. Mid Rise Medium Wash Jeans:

Dark Low Rise Thick Stitch Jeans:

My Current Favorites: 

Considering I have an entire blog about my favorite products at my favorite store, it's almost impossible for me to narrow down my favorites to the 2-3 item limit I gave my friends! But I have done a few recent posts about some of my longtime favorites, so here's a quick reference list:

Favorite Jeans: This post
Barcelona Cami Collection: This Post
Portofino Shirt favorites  This Post

If you follow any of us you'll know that the Barcelona Cami and Portofino Shirt are such tried-and-true wardrobe staples they don't always get classified as a "current favorite." But I think we would all agree that you can never go wrong with those during a sale.

My two current favorite jackets are the Military Jacket and French Terry Jacket, shown on Carylee and Erin above. And another one of my staples for pairing with my Barcelona Cami is this Cascading Cover Up:
Express Cascading Cover Up, Marled Cardigan
Neutral and B/W option here / White version here

I took a little tally of some of these new favorites and here's the result:

Three Votes: Military Jacket

Two Votes: French Terry Jacket

Two Votes: Slim Flare Jeans

And as far as what all of us are planning to get during the sale, keep checking back this week because I'll have an extra post with everyone's wishlist items, including the one necklace that three of us put on our wishlist, so stay tuned to see which one it is!

  4. This is so exciting! I love that military jacket and I have to replace mine, so I have a feeling this sale could be very dangerous for my bank account :)

  5. can't wait to see the necklace you all want. that military jacket is so fetch and i think i need it, along with the striped tee. the v neck doesn't look as high as others..

  6. Isn't it fun to start thinking about fall! Love seeing this line up. I am excited about wearing my flares, and I love the sweaters and military jackets.

  7. 2 thumbs up for the military jacket!!!!


  8. Slim flared jeans are my favorite for fall. I will still wear skinnies - but I like how flares elongate the legs! Looks like a good shopping list for the "upcoming" sale.

  9. Fall is definitely in the air! I love the military jacket with the striped top. So adorable! I can't wait to see all the fall stuff popping up everyone. I'm still not ready to get rid of summer though. Ha!

  10. I am seriously crossing my fingers for a huge labor day sale! I have like 6 things on my wishlist from that email of new september arrivals they sent out yesterday ahah!

  11. That french terry jacket is so cute! I'm trying to be good and not shop as much, but I can never resist a good sale!

  12. Love seeing a round-up of favorites, I also love that terry jacket! Already making my list for their Labor Day sale ;-)


  13. Even though I just bought a few things last week, that isn't going to stop me from buying more if the sale is good. I really want to have the skinny flares work for me, but I think I am too short and too pear shaped.

  14. Love the first look and both with the stripes tops.

  15. Cool post! Love the striped tees Skye is rocking, also in love with the military jacket!

  16. You know I'm a fan of all the stripes and that military jacket! *Fingers crossed* for a fantastic Labor Day sale ;-)

  17. I have a strange obsession with those cargo jackets right now, so that's def my favorite look! All very amazing looks, though!

  18. Great round-up! I like the military jacket but already have a similar one so I can't justify another but it's a great basic! I have my eyes on the Barcelona camis (I think I already mentioned this) but I want another white, and one in navy. And I really want the draped cardigan too! I'm hoping for a sale!

  19. I really like the cascading cover up - it falls so nicely on you. I may have to check out getting a cami to try if there's a good sale.


    Would love to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  20. I love the French Terry and Military jackets! Those striped tee's are so cute too!

  21. I'm off to look everyone up on IG! I'm new to your blog and to shopping at Express, so I'm really glad I read this before the sale! I've got a loooong wish list! If the Portofino shirts are typically buy 1, get one 50% off, how does the pricing change on them? Do they go to 40% off each, no longer a buy one get one deal?

    1. Hi Teresa! I'm glad you found me! :) And yes, when the storewide 40% off hits, the BOGO offers are off the table. And I hear you on the wishlist. I'm trying to narrow mine down to a realistic level!! It's hard!

  22. I am WAITING for the sale! Tick, tock....! Can you believe I never tried on Express jeans?! OMG--the BEST! I bought the mid rise baby bootcut during their $39 sale this weekend. I have to check out the slim flares too, I'm sure they are awesome. I'm also waiting for that cascading cardi to go on sale. BTW--what size did you get? I sized up to a Small.... XOXOXO

    1. Hi Casey! I'm wearing my usual XS in the sweater.
