Recent top sellers and my honest reviews!
Nothing brings me more joy than helping you all discover new things. And, it’s even more exciting when you message me about how pleased you are with your purchases! Because of this trust, I take very seriously my mission to make sure the items I choose are really good. They’re either ones I own/would love to own, or recommendations from my most trusted friends (many of whom are stylists). My philosophy is this: If I wouldn’t buy it myself, I won’t share it on my blog. And while I think I should be gifted a lifetime supply of Vuori joggers, Mother jeans and Poppy Finch jewelry (only slightly kidding here), what you’ll see below are all favorites I’ve bought myself!
Today’s post is about recent top sellers and my honest reviews. It’s pretty thrilling for me to analyze what’s selling, and it reminds me of my Nordstrom buying days which were so much fun! I’m trying something new here by sharing these items with you and then giving you my two cents on each one. I hope you like it!
P.S. I’ve been working on updating my Pinterest boards, and I’d love to know what you think. And, if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish and the hot new items we ALL need, then subscribe here and never miss a post! You can also follow me on Instagram here.
#1 J.crew coverup and swim
This oversized shirt coverup is a top seller and a personal favorite. It’s effortless, works with every single swimsuit, and provides just the right amount of coverage — plus it’s often on sale. Grab it before it sells out! I happen to love the basic swimsuits from J.Crew, like this one shoulder that’s super stylish and elegant (I have it in two colors). You just can’t go wrong with these basics! I’m wearing an XS coverup and size 4 swimsuit for reference.
#2 Jacket favorites
This jacket is so good, I highly recommend it to everyone. It’s a very affordable price, and has just been re-stocked after months of waiting. I’m wearing an XS, which fits perfectly — it’s a little stretchy and super comfy. Make sure to roll or scrunch up the sleeves 🙂 Speaking of jackets, this pretty green jacket is another hot item — runs a little roomy — and this pink one is also super cute and well-priced. We can never have too many jackets!
#3 Sandal best sellers
These clear strap sandals by Schutz are all time favorites. I’m not sure what will happen to my outfits when they fall apart! They are comfortable, really versatile, and literally work with anything you wear, whether it’s jeans or a pretty dress. Another top seller has been this YSL sandal – it’s the PERFECT caramel color! Also these Bottega inspired sandals by Marc Fisher are super stylish and go with everything.
#4 Spring dresses
This dress has received many compliments — it’s a simple striped cotton dress, but the high/low hemline is a nice detail. It was re-stocked again this season, and new colors were added. It runs a little narrow on the top part (I’m wearing a petite small). Another well-loved dress is this one from Anthropologie – it’s still in stock, but I’m guessing not for long. I purchased the petite XS, and it’s quite roomy but I loved it so much that I had it altered several inches down each side. Now it fits perfectly!
#5 Frame striped blouse
This blouse was love at first sight … what’s not to love about a simple black striped, wear-all-the-time top! While I don’t usually spend this much on a top, I couldn’t resist — you’ll wear it so much that it’ll be worth it. It runs a little roomy – I’m wearing an XS. Love it with faded denim, black, or even a white pair of jeans and a neutral shoe. Easy!
#6 J.Crew cardigans
Left: Camille shrunken cardigan | Frame cami | Necklaces – here, here and here | Gucci bag | Right: J.Crew cardigan | ATM tee | Mother denim | Shoes, similar here | Givenchy bag | Sunglasses | Initial necklace | Poppy Finch necklace
I might be sounding like a broken record … sorry … but these cardigans are true favorites and I have to share. The Camille blazer style (above left, XS) is slightly thinner and runs true to size. The Juliette (above right in camel) runs really really big, and I’m wearing an XXS. When the weather warms up, put them aside for a few months and start wearing the Halogen one below!
#7 Halogen $69 cardigan
Recently I wrote this blog post, “The best $69 you’ll spend, trust me” so there’s not much else to say except if you’re looking for the perfect, summer weight, go-with-everything cardigan — this is the one!
#8 Paige Christy
It’s so nice to have a non-jean option sometimes, and these casual pants by Paige are so good — everyone loves them. I’m wearing a size 25 – I’m NEVER a 25. I do think the 26 might be a little looser around the waist, so if you’re in between sizes, I’m going to say they run a little roomy.
#9 ATM schoolboy tee
The ATM Schoolboy tee is a hands-down personal favorite — and all of you seem to like it too! I know it’s not inexpensive, but the arm flattering sleeve and the texture of the fabric make this a really, really good tee (I’m in an XS).
#10 Gucci sunglasses
I still love these Gucci sunglasses. I’ve been wearing them ever since I started this whole Instagram/social media journey! They’re glamorous, and I’ve even worn them on my exercise walks. A top seller loved by all of you — and they seem to fit most everyone’s faces. I recently branched out and splurged on these Tom Fords, and last year’s newest addition was these Tortoise Guccis. Find a glamorous pair of sunnies and you’ll feel like a star!
*Bonus item – Vuori Jogger!
This is THE top selling item from the blog every single month. I’ve written about it over and over — I wear my own all the time (size small) — I even tried them out for my pickleball game tonight! They were super comfy, of course. If you don’t own a pair, you’re missing out. Highly recommend — this is the best jogger out there.
