Y’all know my love runs deep for Abercrombie lately and their new Spring arrivals are probably my favorite to date. So many cute styles and even cuter prints! Bring on all of the dresses, mini skirts and shorts now that the warmer weather is *hopefully* here to stay.
With Easter around the corner, Abercrombie has so many colorful style options that would be perfect for the occasion. If you are new (or coming full circle) to shopping at Abercrombie, their selection mixes trendy pieces with classic styles that are appropriate for all ages and sizes. Sizing wise, I have found Abercrombie to run very true to size and they also offer petite and tall length options. I typically wear an XS in tops and dresses and a 25 in their denim which is the best affordable denim that I own I might add.
If you have anything sitting in your online cart, Abercrombie is having 25% off select items plus free shipping over $75 today! Check out some of my favorite items from their new Spring and Summer arrivals below as well as some of my all time favorite pieces.

And just like that it’s November 1st and approximately 54 days until Christmas but who’s counting;) October’s top ten purchased items by all of you were not a shock to me at all but it’s safe to say you girls love (and I mean LOVE) your designer dupes!
In addition to designer dupes, I saw a trend with cozy, affordable items as well as clothing items that you could wear with over the knee boots. Speaking of over the knee boots, these have been a top seller now for three months in a row and I’m so excited to announce that the brand finally gave me a discount code for my followers! It is CHIC40 and will get you 40% off. Grab em at this price while you can ladies! 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… OCTOBER TOP TEN!
You girls love your dupes! This Hermés bracelet dupe was the number one selling item but the famous Gucci belt dupe was a close second as well as all of the David Yurman dupes. I’m linking all of them below!
Not only do I love love love these boots, I’ve received an overwhelming amount of good feedback on these AND I just got a 40% off discount code for my followers – CHIC40! 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:)
Leopard everything is flying off of the shelves this season! This sweater is under $20 + is BOGO 50% off right now. I suggest grabbing it and the other top seller below (this sweater) before the promotion ends! I am wearing an XS (my true size) as I wanted something more fitted but if you want a loser fit, I suggest sizing up!
This knotted shirt dress has been on and off sale all month and when it is, you ladies have been grabbing it up! The unexpected knot in the front gives it a little something extra. I have paired it with over the knee boots and also with a cardigan and booties! It runs true to size and comes in a few other styles as well. All are currently 25% off. Linking all below!
This $15 basic tee is a must for layering! I own it in all 4 colors and wear them almost daily, especially the striped ones. I love pattern mixing with the striped ones. The easiest prints to mix with them are leopard and plaid! Bring in the other pattern with a scarf, belt or booties! Linking some pattern play options below.
This fuzzy pullover has been 40% off all month! It has sold out multiple times and been restocked. If they still have it in your size, I suggest grabbing it ASAP before they decide not to restock it again. I sized up to a small so I could wear it with leggings but I will say it already runs oversized to begin with! What makes this fuzzy pullover different from others ones I’ve seen is that the inside is the exact same material as the outside so talk about cozy central! Since Express keeps having good sales, going to list a few of the other top sellers from there below.
After doing my “How to Style Overalls” blog post, I’m surprised these overalls aren’t sold out yet because y’all bought the crap out of them! I obviously have a thing for overalls and these are so good. I love the slim fit and raw hem. They do run on the smaller side so if in between sizes, size up! I got a 25 but honestly could have done a 26! They are currently 25% off. I am also linking a cheaper pair if you aren’y ready to pull the trigger yet on these.
These high waisted ankle pants sky rocketed to the top of the leader board last month and placed in the top ten this month too. 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.
These cotton, $15 leggings were a huge hit! They run true to size.
This sweater dress is actually a sweater that I sized up to make a dress! I suggest sizing up two sizes. I am normally an XS and got the medium in both of these! The dress comes in 8 colors, is just $29 and is currently included in a BOGO 50% off sale. I suggest grabbing this as well as the other Target top seller (this sweater).
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 Target sweater dress 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 dress 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!
This might be the most highly requested post of the year! After being deemed “an expert of styling overalls” by Houstonia Mag, I’ve taken my love for overalls to a whole new level. I have them in all shapes and sizes so it was about time for a round up so that I can covert all of you too, especially since my two favorite pairs are 50% off right now!
Overalls are no longer just for kids. They have made their way into many bloggers’ closets and I bet into a lot yours as well. From lounge wear to city streets they are making a comeback. They are more versatile than you think and I’ve teamed up with 30 blogger babes to show you just how versatile this trend really is as well as showing you a few ways I love to style my overalls during the cooler months.
Happy Monday friends! I am so excited to be partnering with Abercrombie & Fitch today to share some of my favorite pieces from their Holiday collection and give my honest review on three of their most popular parkas (Ultra, Sherpa, and Nylon).
It’s no secret Abercrombie has worked it’s way back into my wardrobe over the past year and it’s been my mission to convert all of you ladies too. Well I’d say mission accomplished because I cannot tell you how many times a day I get messages thanking me for reintroducing you ladies to one of the retailers we frequented back in the day. I can tell you for the amount of Abercrombie that I own at this point, my high school self sure would be proud! If you have yet to see what all of the Abercrombie hype is about, wait until you see these outfits I put together with their Holiday collection- they are some of my favorite pieces yet!
Before we get started breaking down each piece, I want to talk about sizing. Abercrombie sizing is very true to size. I very rarely have to size up in anything! For the parkas they run on the bigger side but I suggest getting your true size so you can layer underneath. If you plan to really bundle up underneath, I might suggest sizing up but otherwise they run true to size! As for tops and skirts, I wear an XS and a 25 in their jeans.
I picked up the Ultra Parka last year before my trip to Chicago and it ended up being my favorite coat that I have ever owned. The fur vest inside is detachable so it can be worn by itself or as an extra layer inside. This coat is great for different climates since the amount of warmth can be adjusted by adding in or taking out the vest.
Without the vest, I’d say it’s great for temps between 45-65 degrees and anything colder than that I would add the vest back in! Now let’s talk about the vest because it’s probably my favorite part of the jacket! The “Green“ and “Black” color options will most certainly sell out first as the fur vest in these is *in my opinion* the best. It looks very expensive and because of the color can be worn with black, brown or grey boots. See one of the ways I’d style the vest below.
This coat has 4 pockets, a fur hood and adjustable drawstrings on the waist and bottom of the jacket. It also has a zipper and button closure.
Flannel Shirt: A staple piece for the cooler weather that can be worn so many different ways. Tied in a cute knot in the front, open with a shirt underneath or tied around your waist. It comes in 10 color options but these 4 are my personal favorite. The ones on the far left and right will also be great for the holiday season to layer under sweaters and sweatshirts so that they peak out at the collar and sleeve. I sized up to a small for a more oversized look. If you want more of a fitted look, get your true size.
Overalls: I own the left and middle pair and they are both top sellers for the blog. The black is more form fitting and stretchy while the middle and right pairs are a looser, boyfriend fit. I suggest sizing up in the black pair. The boyfriend overalls fit oversized but run true to size. I’ve styled both pairs for warm and cold weather. Check out my Instagram for more inspiration.
Here is one way to style the vest on it’s own. This look would be cute for holiday pictures or a holiday party!
Abercrombie’s mini skirt collection is amazing right now. I’ve been on a skirt kick since Houston hasn’t cooled off enough for full on Winter mode. I’ve paired all of these skirts with everything from sock booties to riding boots to over the knee boots. I have found that their skirts run on the bigger side but I usually still get my true size for length purposes. If you are in between sizes though, I suggest sizing down.
Maybe it’s because I’m sherpa obsessed or maybe because this parka comes in the 4 most beautiful colors but this Sherpa Military Parka is so good y’all! The entire inside is lined with sherpa making it extremely cozy and warm. This jacket has two pockets, a fur hood, and adjustable drawstrings on the waist and bottom. While all 4 colors are gorgeous, I anticipate the “Navy Blue“ and “Olive Green“ will sell out first as they are usually more popular colors.
Boucle Sweater: I loved this sweater so much I paid full price for it and that’s saying a lot because I rarely pay full price for anything! It fits a little oversized but I suggest getting your true size. Notice I’ve styled it with a skirt above and jeans below!
The Shiny Nylon Parka is the most heavy duty parka out of the three. This coat is definitely made for a cold climate with it’s heavy duty material, warm lining, and long length. I like that this coat his a cinching effect on the sleeves and zippers on the sleeve and bottom of the coat- added details like this give it something special! Other details include two hand pockets, a fur hood and a adjustable drawstring on the bottom of the coat. It comes in two beautiful colors!
Beanies: I own number one and two and always get so many compliments. Finding fashionable and practical beanies can be tough but these check both boxes! The two in the middle are going to be your warmest and the two on the outside are more for show since they are a knit material.
Scarves: I own several scarves from Abercrombie and I can vouch that they are top notch. They are pretty big and very warm! They have lots of colors and fabrics but these are my favorites!
Buffalo Check Poncho: I own the red and black and always get so many compliments! It is perfect for the holiday season and looks so cute paired with a striped tee like this.
I couldn’t end this post without mentioning that Abercrombie has arguably the biggest and best holiday pajama selection that alway sells out so fast. I already picked up these flannel ones and also this jogger set. Both run true to size and are beyond cozy!
