How are we already half way through the year?! Time is seriously flying and I can’t believe I am coming up on my one year “non-workiversary”. September will make an entire year that I have been blogging full time and it still blows my mind that I get to do something that I love every day.

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”. Several of May’s top selling items were top sellers for previous months as well such as the Gucci belt dupe, Abercrombie overalls, and my tried and true Levi jeans that just so happen to be 50% off!

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!

Now presenting… May Top Ten!

This jumpsuit was by far the number one seller! Perfect for any Spring/Summer events, especially for a more casual wedding attire. It has a detachable halter strap and pockets! Fits true to size but if you have a bigger chest I would size up.

This criss cross back tank and jeans both made the monthly top ten! The tank is now marked down to just $16 and makes the perfect Summer date night look. It runs true to size (wearing an XS). The jeans are currently 50% off making them just $45 and they also run true to size (wearing a 25).

This little top and shorts combo also made the top ten and probably got the most wear from my closet! I found myself reaching for this tank more than I thought that I would! I’ve worn it with jean shorts, white pants and even tied up with a skirt. It’s also under $25 and runs true to size (wearing a 25). The linen shorts come in 7 colors, are SO comfortable and are currently on sale for just $23.

Y’all must be buying entire outfits this month because again these overalls and watermelon tee were in the top ten! The watermelon tee is one of my favorite Summer staples from last year and is just $10! Make sure to size up. The overalls run true to size (wearing an XS) + come in 4 colors.

Y’all loved this swimsuit that is a designer dupe for this $300 one! I suggest sizing up as it does run a little small length wise.

This little tank has been on repeat! I own it in 5 out of the 7 colors and wear it almost daily. I love tucking or tying it up with shorts or wearing it under overalls. If you plan on drying it, size up!

These matching swimsuits were a HUGE hit and for good reason! They are relatively cheap and super cute. I love the knot detail. They run true to size (wearing an XS in both) but if you have boobs or a butt at all I would suggest sizing up.

And last but not least is the Gucci belt dupe that has been a top seller for 6 months now and is constantly going in and out of stock. Click here for the small Gucci belt dupe and here for the large one!
