Happy Monday, y’all! And since this is the first post of November, happy November!
I’m spending this week in Abu Dhabi which, as you can probably imagine, I’m very very excited about. John and I are both going and I’m looking forward to exploring a new-to-us place and just spending quality time together. If it’s a bit quieter than usual on Instagram, know that I’ll definitely be sharing lots of details after the time. I want to be present as much as possible, and we all know Instagram kinda ruins the moment sometimes … ha!
Today, I wanted to start a fun new series rounding up the top sellers from the month prior. While I share my looks on LTK and in the Weekly IG Roundups, I thought y’all would be interested to see what everyone around the community is loving most. Not surprisingly, the ten from October are some of my favorites and are highly raved about among y’all. They are definitely some of the pieces I’ve been reaching for over and over and will continue to throughout Fall and Winter season. I’ll share a few quick details about each piece and a photo so you can see how I’ve styled them.
Madewell Ayres Wide Sleeve Pullover Sweater
Another Madewell beauty. I knew I needed this wide-sleeve sweater the second I saw it online, with the bell sleeve details catching my eye. It hasn’t disappointed and I’ve already styled it several ways – and plan on continuing the trend throughout Fall, Winter, and Spring. I think I need it in black, too … don’t you. I mean, it is 20%…
Topshop Faux Leather Miniskirt
It’s getting colder but just throw some stockings under this faux leather mini skirt and you can still wear it in the winter with some over-the-knee boots! Or if you’re a fellow Florida girl, you know that we can wear this type of thing pretty much year-round. It’s totally worth the $35 investment. Cute for date night or a sassy Fall look.
’47 Clean Up NY Yankees Baseball Cap
There’s been a resurgence of interest in this hat by … myself and by you guys! I’ve had it for a couple of years now and rediscovered it just in time for a trip and wore it on a travel day. Great for when you just can’t be bothered doing your hair!
The Billie Razor
I jumped on the Billie bandwagon in September and I’m happy to see that y’all trust my approval on this nifty razor. I mean, it has a cult following for a reason! Dang, it’s good. I actually didn’t think I could be so obsessed with something like a razor, but it’s true love over here, friends. It’s honestly the best $9 you can spend! Yep, for $9 you get their Starter Kit, which includes a handle, a magnetic holder, and two five-blade cartridges. After that, they deliver you new cartridges based on how often you shave [they’re a subscription service]. Oh, and their blades are surrounded by hydrating aloe which makes for a hydrating and close shave. I have the charcoal handle but the neon and blush are super fun. For the record, John approves, too.
Madewell Mock Neck Side-Button Pullover Sweater
I feel like Madewell was created for Fall, don’t you? This mock neck sweater proves my point. If you’re starting to think about Thanksgiving [like me], definitely have this on your radar. I’m eyeing the pearl ivory color for a neutral snag and I just love the button detail on the side hem. As always with Madewell, size down.
Halogen Oversized Turtleneck Tunic Sweater
This is such a good classic turtleneck tunic that you can have for years to come. I find that it tucks well, which is a plus, since not all sweaters are created equally in that regard. The gray is sold out but there are some pretty, warm hues in stock. It runs big so order one size down [it’ll still be a bit oversized]. You’ll definitely see me in this a ton – fair warning 🙂 If you’re curious about my lip color in this photo, head to this post where I highlighted my favorite bold lip colors for the Fall season!
All in Favor Surplice Midi Dress
This is a great dress for a Fall or Winter weddings and I always find a wrap detail extremely flattering on all body types [probably why we all love this one!]. I might snag the black option for some holiday parties. It’d be cute with heavy gold jewelry and a bold lip color, don’t you think? The sizing reference on the product page is accurate; I’m in an XXS in this photo.

Vince Camuto Gigietta Bootie
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve worn these booties … or even wanted to wear these booties but told myself I wear them too much … I’d have quite a hefty pot to spend. These are so cute and so comfortable. Not too high but they give you a little boost, and they come in every finish from neutrals to snakeskins. It says to go a half size up if you’re between size; however, I went with my normal 6.5 and they fit fine.
J. Crew Petite Cocoon Coat
Not surprised by this one! This Cocoon Coat might be the best ‘everyday’ coat that I own. I’m wearing the neutral sandstone color here but it comes in a BUNCH of options [gray, pink, black, forest green, etc.] It’s an investment so if you’re not wanting to spend the $$, stay tuned to my IG stories throughout the holiday season for sale alerts. Sizing wise, always purchase for your height [I’m 5’3 so I purchase Petite] and go one size down from normal. For reference, my size is XXS Petite.
Marc Fisher Unique Bootie
I snagged these booties [TTS] in multiple colors during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale earlier this year and I’m sure glad I did. Sadly, they aren’t available in many colors, though the black is a must and the snakeskin are super cute – both are still in stock. If you’re looking for something similar, Marc Fisher does make this style in a variety of colors and finishes. I also rounded up other go-to booties in my Fall Shoe Review. Tons of beauties there!
Alright, I won’t keep you any longer, but I hope you’re into this series. I would love for you to let me know in the comments below! Y’all know I value your feedback SO much and I want to make sure I’m bringing what you want to the table. As always, thank you for being here. Your support means everything! I’m wishing you an amazing month. xo.
