Top Ten in March
I’m not sure when or why I decided to commit myself to a daily posting schedule here on the blog, but it’s what I’m used to and it’s what you’re used to, so that’s what I keep doing!
I love the pace, to be honest with you. I always miss the comments and the feedback on the rare occasion that I do take a day off; but with such a hefty posting schedule, I’m usually so busy creating new content and thinking about what’s next that I rarely take the time to stop and dive into my analytics, assess what is working and what isn’t, and consider new ideas or strategies for the future.
I decided to do some of that this week, and it’s been interesting! By recycling some of my old content, I’ve been able to spend more time on the back end of things, and I thought it might be fun to share some of what I discovered.
First I’ll share my top 10 posts from the month of March, and then I’ll share the 10 products that were the most popular here on the blog. If you aren’t a daily reader, I hope you enjoy this recap. I you are, perhaps it will be a good refresher, or at least interesting to see what other readers like best.
Top 10 Posts in March 2018
These are in typical Top Ten order, with the month’s most popular post listed last.
#10. Must Have $22 Tee for Spring // This outfit is so simple, yet I really like the combination of colors, and while I know a lot of you detest these shoes (LOL), I think they’re a great way to give a basic look a modern update.
#9. What To Wear with Pink Jeans // Without a doubt, the softest pullover ever, and the cutest jeans I’ve worn this spring (similar for less at Gap.) The Vans keep it casual, and this shoulder bag is my new favorite.
#8. What To Wear When Spring Is Slow To Come // Haha, if we had only known then how slow it was going to be. I’m still waiting… At least I’m getting a lot of wear out of all those transition sweaters I bought! This striped whipstitched sweater is probably my favorite of all… this one or the colorful striped one from Old Navy (see #5.) I’m totally obsessed with stripes this season.
#7. Weekend Ready // This is such an easy outfit, and I love the sporty vibe. These jeans are on sale, by the way. They’ve been my favorite white distressed jeans for going on three years now. (Size up one; I wear a size 30.) And if you want more ideas for styling your white Converse, see yesterday’s post, 15 ways to wear white Converse!
#5. Striped Sweater Outfit // Because stripes make me happy… and can we just take a moment and talk about those earrings? How fun are they for spring? Statement earrings are a big trend right now, and they’re a great way to level up a basic outfit.
#4. Sunday Best // This worked perfectly as my Easter outfit, and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it a lot this spring and summer for church and other events. This dress is so flattering, super comfortable, and it doesn’t wrinkle. Plus it’s 20% off right now! Oh, and I found my go-to white pumps on sale as well. See all my Saks Sale Picks!
#3. Trunk Club Unboxing & Try-On Haul // These posts are always popular. I’ll have another one for you all next week!
#2. White T-Shirt Review & Comparison // It seems women are forever ISO the perfect white tee, can I get an amen? I actually found several good ones, and I’m sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly in this, the 2nd most popular post of the month!
#1. Pink High Waist Ankle Cigarette Leg Jeans // I’m fascinated that this is the most popular post of the month… and by a landslide. It’s definitely a look that’s a step outside my comfort zone. I guess you all like it when I change things up a bit! FYI, these pants just went on sale. If you were on the fence, now is the time to take the plunge!
Top 10 Products in March
Do you ever wonder what JLS readers are buying??? Based on clicks, these were the 10 most popular products across my blog and social channels during the month of March.
#10. Stripe Puff Sleeve Dress // This is the only product in the top 10 that I didn’t feature in a dedicated outfit post, but it got a lot of attention when I shared it in a Try On Sesh. it really is such a great little number to dress up or down this spring… so flattering and excellent quality. For reference, this is a size 6.
#9. Sannibel Wedge Sandals // I’m seeing these sandals on all the blogs, but amazingly, they’re still fully stocked! I can’t wait till the weather warms up around here so I can actually wear them.
#8. Darren Shoulder Bag // This is such a great everyday bag, and I absolutely love the quality for the price point. It looks and feels so luxe. I did manage to snag mine on sale, and it’s stocked by a variety of retailers so I expect to see it on sale again at some point. I’ll keep you posted!
#7. Varsity Stripe Tee // Love these Treasure & Bond sporty tees for wearing with jeans and kicks on the weekends or any casual day at home. For size reference, this is a small.
#6. Basic Pullover // I absolutely adore this slouchy washed jersey pullover, and I guess you guys did too, judging from the clicks; I think I wore it 3 days last week. It’s a little spendy, but sometimes I’m willing to splurge on a casual top that I know I’ll wear a ton. For size reference, this is a small.
#5. Knot Front Tee // You know how much I love a tee with a twist, and evidently you all do too! This top is such a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down. It comes in red and yellow as well. For size reference, this is a small.
#4. Kensa Peep Toe Booties // There are still a few sizes left! These shoes are so cute and comfortable, and currently selling for half of what I paid for them last spring!
#3. Vans Slip On Sneakers // I love these shoes… I’ve been wearing them a ton. So comfortable and they go with casual outfits so well.
#2. Twist Front Tee // You guys do love your tees!!! This was another super popular item, and with good reason. At $22, you really ought to get all 4 colors! In addition to the three colors that were available when I first posted this look, this tee is now available in a really pretty mint green that pairs beautifully with white! For size reference, this is a medium, and I washed and dried it before taking these pictures.
Drum roll please . . .
#1. Sylvie Tiered Hem Linen Tee // This top was by far the most popular product on my blog so far this spring. It has double the clicks of the next most popular item. It really is a great little tee, and it comes in so many pretty colors. I’m still waiting for the azalea to be restocked in my size. For size reference, this is a small.
There was some discussion about sizing, and if this was the right size or if I should have sized up. I’ve worn it again since looking at these pictures, and the small does fit just fine. I think the way I was standing in this picture makes it look like it’s pulling in the chest a bit, but it fits really well. I haven’t washed it yet, though, so I’ll keep you posted on how that goes!
I hope you found this post interesting! I always enjoy looking back at what was popular.
It seems that you guys really like cute tops and occasionally a dress, but pants hardly ever rank, even when I share a lower priced option. Shoes are popular, but bags not quite so much… although one did rank in the top 10 this month.
I also find it curious that accessories and jewelry hardly ever get the attention major wardrobe pieces do. They’re such a great way to update an outfit without breaking the bank. Maybe that’s because I tend to wear the same few pieces over and over, although I did share a couple pairs of fun statement earrings this month.
While my spring fashion series may be over, spring hasn’t even arrived yet here in Pennsylvania, so I’ll definitely be putting more spring outfits together when the weather warms up!
I’ve also got some other fun posts planned, including a white jeans review, a shorts roundup, and some of my usual features such as 5 Under $50, April Favorites, unboxing and try-on posts, and some more Fight the Frump posts! As always, I’m open to ideas and suggestions.
