I always like to take some time at the beginning of a new month and look back at the last month’s posts and see what products and posts were the most popular, so today I’m sharing my Top Ten in October!
TOP 10 POSTS IN OCTOBER 2020
Based on Google Analytics, these were the top 10 posts on my blog during the month of October — but not necessarily the posts I published last month. Sometimes older posts still get a lot of traffic from Pinterest or Google, so they continue to rank in the top 10, even through they were published a while ago.
These posts are listed in typical Top Ten order, with the most popular one last.
My try-on hauls are always popular, but this month, they barely made the Top Ten. Sometimes they get really loooooong. I probably should figure out a way to cut back on the commentary and amount of pictures, but I always feel like the different angles are helpful.
And another popular feature, this is the only What I Wore Lately that made the Top Ten this month… there are some really cute outfits in here, if I do say so myself!
Another try-on haul! That Ambercrombie sherpa looks so cozy… makes me want to go put it on right now.
This post is an oldie but goodie that I’ve updated a few times in an effort to keep it current. I actually wrote this back when everyone was asking me how to wear ankle boots with their skinny jeans. Now we think that seems obvious, and we’re trying to figure out the straighter styles. Fashion is a funny thing.
We stepped away from fashion for a minute to talk about fall nail polish trends… I was kind of surprised to see this post rank so high. I guess I need to remember that for next year.
Well, this post certainly incited a lot of varying opinions in the comments. I’m still struggling with this, truth be told. I’ve done more experimenting with different styles and lengths of jeans and both pairs of Chelsea boots, and they all look incredibly awkward to me.
I still can’t believe I am the same weight in both of those pictures. It’s amazing what good fit and wearing styles that flatter your body will do for you.
I’m not much of a skincare/makeup guru, but I’ve been trying some new products recently, and I’m really excited about my new under eye routine. It takes a little extra time, but it’s worth it.
This is another old post that is always in the top three. I can’t believe how much traffic it gets from Pinterest. It’s probably time for an update with new pictures.
Once again, by far and away the most popular post on my blog this month… the skinny jean question. I just gave it a quick update it with a few new pictures, but the content is still the same.
I’m still seeing plenty of skinnies around, especially now that the weather is getting cold and we want to tuck them into our boots. They’re also perfect for the combat boot trend. This post shares some tips for styling them in a way that looks modern.
Okay, moving on to popular products…
TOP 10 PRODUCTS IN OCTOBER 2020
These were the 10 most popular products across my blog and social channels last month. They’re listed in typical Top Ten order, with the most popular one last.
This is such a great color for fall, and this top is cute and a little different. It’s verrrry soft but thinner than a sweatshirt, more of a thick t-shirt material. I love the v-neckline, the dolman sleeves, and the banded waist. Plus, the hood is cute and sporty, and it’s not heavy or annoying at all.
also wearing: Caslon stripe tee
This product is pricey, but I feel like it’s doing wonders for my under-eye area. Not only is it a treatment lotion, it has all-mineral SPF 35, and it’s tinted so it helps with color correcting. Use it sparingly, and for best results, let it set up 15-20 minutes before applying makeup.
FYI, the same goes for your facial sunscreen; for that, I’m using UV Elements Tinted Broad-Spectrum SPF 44. The all-mineral sunscreen doesn’t irritate my skin, and it’s also tinted. I just put both products on auto-order at Dermstore, so I save 15%.
This sweatshirt is suuuuuper soft inside, and it’s very thick and cozy. I like the longer cut with the side slits. Unfortunately, this color (russet brown) is out of stock, but it comes in a bunch of other colors. I’m wearing the small.
Unfortunately this sweater is also low inventory, especially in this color. I think it’s such a pretty camel — really more of an oatmeal/beige. It’s TTS; I have the small.
And this jacket is sold out too… at least it usually is. Sometimes a random size will pop back in stock. I have the small, and it fits fine over a tank or tee, but it’s a tad snug in the shoulders, so I recommend sizing up if you tend to run between sizes.
I wanted a new quilted vest to wear over sweaters and tees for casual outdoor events, and I found this one on Amazon. It’s really flattering, and a very good price. It comes in a variety of colors, and I have the size small.
These were one of those purchases I grabbed because the sale price was so good, but I had a feeling I would end up returning them. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I absolutely love them. Unfortunately, like so many of these popular items, they’re selling out, but you might have some luck with one of the other colors. Definitely size up half, if ordering.
also wearing: Good American Good Legs skinnies, size 28
I picked up this sweater on a whim, and I’ve already worn it several times. I love the length, the cut of the neckline, and the dolman sleeves. And this one, I’m happy to tell you, is pretty well stocked! I’m wearing the olive sarma, but the other colors are good too. My only caveat is that it’s fairly lightweight, so if you’re in an area that is already getting winter weather, you might want to put this one away for spring. (It’s TTS; I have a small.)
2. Good American Good Legs High Waist Crop Skinny Jeans (more sizes at Bloomies)
also wearing: J.Crew leopard flats; size 9
These jeans probably need no introduction, I wear them about every other day. They seem to go with everything, and the fit and feel is fantastic. They don’t bag out with wear, and they don’t slide down. They run true to size, but give them an hour or two to break in. Mine felt snug in the legs at first, but it didn’t take long until they felt like I’d had them for years.
also wearing: Talbots flyaway cardigan, size S
And finally, this tee is from last year, but this year’s version was the top seller this month! It really is such a nice, elevated graphic tee for adding interest to casual looks. It looks great under cardigans, denim jackets, leather jackets, utility jackets… you name it! Unfortunately, it is low inventory, and a final sale item. If ordering, I recommend sizing up. I have the medium.
And that’s a wrap! I always like to ask, which posts from October were your favorites, and did you score any of these Top Ten products?
