I am in shock that it’s October 1st! Mostly because I’m sitting here looking at all of my New Year’s Resolutions and realizing we are way closer to 2019 than I realized and I have yet to start so many things that I wanted to. I’ve been slacking on the blog the last couple of months with all of my travels but I plan on finishing out the year strong so if there is something you would like to see before the year is over, please let me know!
Now, continuing on with the monthly top favorites, or the most purchased items by all of YOU, it is no surprise that we have some “repeat offenders” but I was surprised to see that almost all of the top sellers were sweaters and cold weather items. It’s safe to say we are all ready for the fall weather! Several of September’s top selling items were top sellers for previous months as well such as the Gucci belt dupe (going strong for almost a year now!) and the Abercrombie off the shoulder sweater. If you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!
Now presenting… September Top Ten!
These high waisted ankle pants sky rocketed to the top of the leader board this month. It’s safe to say that Work Wear Wednesdays are not dead and I will be bringing you ladies lot’s more before the year is over! While these pants come in 8 colors, unfortunately there is very limited sizing left. I suggest sizing down if in between sizes as I tend to think Express runs on the bigger side.
Not only do I love love love these boots, I’ve received an overwhelming amount of good feedback on these. AND they are somehow still 40% off with code COZY40! The best way for me to describe them is almost like a stretchy scuba material. They are the only pair of boots that actually stay up on my legs because they are so stretchy, but do not stretch out. I can wear them with leggings, pants and even bare legged- they always stay up! They do run on the small side so I suggest sizing up at least a half size, full size if you plan to wear thicker socks. I got my true size (European 38 and I wear a true 7.5). They fit very snug. I’ve seen them on girls under 5″ and those over 6″ and they work for all heights! Also, I highly suggest expedited shipping if you want to receive them sooner than 4-6 weeks. I cannot sing these boots praises enough and yes I did pay for them myself and this is not sponsored:)
This oversized sweatshirt keeps coming in and out of stock of the camo print but if you can snag it, DO IT! It’s long enough to wear with leggings which makes it a crowd favorite plus it comes in 15 colors so even if you aren’t a camo fan, I highly suggest this style sweatshirt in all of the colors. It fits true to size but if in between sizes, size up!
This fan favorite sweater from last year is back! It is one size fits all but I’d say it fits like a medium. It also comes in white and is still 40% off with code COZY40%. Again I highly suggest getting expedited shipping if you want this sweater sooner than 4-6 weeks.
This sweater has been a top seller for 3 months now and for good reason! It personally one of my most worn items. It’s light weight enough to be worn with shorts which is good for us Southern girls who can’t quite rock over the knee boots just yet. It fits oversized but runs true to size. I wear an XS in this sweater. If they don’t have your size, I highly suggest checking out Abercrombie’s sweater collection because they are absolutely killing it right now!
What do you know- another sweater! This sweater is currently 50% off + free shipping with code SURPRISE. It also comes in a pretty pink as well. It runs true to size but since a lot of sizes are sold out I suggest sizing up in petite sizing. I’m wearing an XS regular but could have done a small petite!
Every time I post these sock booties, you girls go CRAZY! They are just $30 right now with code ZZGET15. They run true to size if you don’t plan to wear socks, size up a half size if you do want to! I know the retailer might shock you but I promise they are great quality!
It’s no surprise that the Gucci belt dupe stays in the top ten every single month. It is now available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. And good news because they brought the brown belts back!
This coat was a top seller last year and I’m so glad that they brought it back this year! It’s a total steal and while it might pain you to think about buying a coat this early, I promise you it will sell out ASAP! Last year, it was already sold out by now. I suggest sizing up if wanting to layer underneath. It is currently 30% off (discount applied at checkout).
I know it is hard to see in this picture, but this plush tunic was another hot commodity both last year and this year! It comes in 4 colors and is under $25 + 30% off! Perfect to wear with leggings and over the knee boots plus i’ve heard it’s a good one for teacher since it’s SO comfortable and covers your bottom. It runs true to size and if they don’t have your size stocked, you can size up in petite sizing! For ex: i’m normally an XS regular but would get a small petite.
And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…
I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram or blog- that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me. Some affiliate programs will pay the influencer for every click that they generate from their site. RewardStyle pays per purchase made. This means that if you click on one of my links and then end up purchasing that item, I will get a small commission (usually between 7-12%). Many bloggers use this same program as part of their revenue source.
Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics. This means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on them or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my Abercrombie shorts link and then purchase a swimsuit and a top in the same transaction, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the shorts link is how you got to the retailer’s site.
These analytics are incredibly important to me because it allows me to see what all of you are liking. At the end of the day, this little blog business of mine is meant to be a resource for all of you so having the ability to track and measure each product’s success is invaluable. Coming from a Finance background, I tend to geek out over the analytics side of it as I find it incredibly intriguing what all of you are liking, buying and clicking on the most! It gets my gears turning because I genuinely want to bring you products that you are going to love and want to buy (at the right price point of course)!
Like I mentioned, this little blog is a full time business for me which means I am so appreciative when you choose to click and shop through my links – whether that be on Instagram or the blog. I have poured everything I have into being a resource for all of you so that hopefully it makes your life a little bit easier. I know that shopping through my links is an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. It is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. O and it allows me to pay my bills 🙂
All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a small cut since I am the one that referred you. Please know I am so thankful when you choose to shop through my links and give me credit for helping you score a great find!
