Top Ten in September

September seems like a while back, but I thought it was too redundant to post this Top 10 post right after my 25 Days of Fall Fashion recap on Monday, so I wanted to wait a few days.

I always love the monthly Top 10 posts, though, so I didn’t want to skip it. It’s helpful to me as I prepare future content to see what posts and products resonated most with you all, and I think it’s fun to share with you as well, so today I’m sharing my top ten posts and products from the month of September!

I’m also adding a new feature at the end called What I Kept. Someone suggested this, and I thought it was fun.

As many of you know, I don’t keep everything I feature; I couldn’t possibly wear it all, and some things just didn’t quite work for me. So at the end of this post, I’ll share a shopping widget with the items from the month that I decided to keep in my personal closet.

TOP 10 POSTS IN September 2018

These are listed in typical Top Ten order, with the month’s most popular post last.

#10. Early Fall Weekend Look // This was definitely one of my favorite posts from the fall style series, so I’m glad it was one of yours too! This look is so me, and I’d wear it every day this fall if I could.

#9. Coffee Talk + What I Wore // This was the only non-outfit post to make the top 10, but it also has outfits in it, so maybe I can’t even say that. I am looking forward to getting back to regular “What I Wore” posts now that I don’t have to post a new outfit 6 days a week!

#8. Sweatshirt Trim Sweater // As you all know, this is one of my favorite looks of the series. It’s just so easy and casual, but modern and put together.

#7. Casual Fall Date Night with Paystub Jacket // I’m glad to see this post ranking in the top 10; it was one of my personal favorites. It makes a great look for a concert, dinner out your honey, or lunch with girlfriends.

#6. Open Cardigan + Grey Jeans // I love this color combination any time of year, but I especially like how unexpected and fresh it is for fall. This outfit is also super comfortable and practical for day to day living, plus you could swap out the grey jeans for grey pants for a work wear look.

#5. Fall Florals // I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying the florals trend this fall, and I’ve worn this outfit a couple of times since I posted it.

#4. Stripes + Ponte Moto Leggings // This was my attempt at an athleisure look; these ponte moto leggings are about as close to leggings as I get, but I still ended up returning them because I had a feeling I wouldn’t get much wear out of them. Still, they’re a nice choice for those who want to level up their leggings game. The moto details are fun, and the material is nice and thick.

#3. Straight Leg Jeans + Rust Cardigan for Fall // I’m kind of surprised to see this outfit in #3, but I’m not convinced that’s because you all liked it so much. I think it was the conversation around the straight leg silhouette that drew people to the post. Either way, it was a helpful discussion, even if not one of my favorite outfits.

#2. Completer Pieces with Kohl’s // I admit, I didn’t expect this post to be so well received, but many of you seemed to love it. I’ll definitely try to incorporate more Kohl’s pieces in future outfit posts!

#1. Styling Bootcut Jeans for 2018 // I’m sure this being the kick-off post to 25 Days of Fall Fashion had something to do with its popularity, but you all really do like your bootcut jeans! I’m glad to see they’re making a bit of a comeback, but I still don’t think they look as modern as skinny jeans or straight cropped styles. Only time will tell if the bootcut trend really takes off again or not.

Okay, moving on to popular products…


Based on clicks, these were the 10 most popular products across my blog and social channels during the month of September.

#10. Rebecca Minkoff Darren Shoulder Bag // I was thrilled to see this awesome bag making the list. It really is SO good, and it’s currently on sale at Saks. I have it in the Putty color.

#9. SONOMA Ribbed Cardigan // Both of my Kohl’s completer pieces made the list, but the camo jacket edged out the cardigan by just a few clicks. This cardigan is really soft and flattering, and it comes in a ton of pretty colors.

#8. SONOMA Utility Jacket // This utility jacket is a great fall completer piece, but the camo is almost sold out. There are a lot of other colors, though.

#7. LOFT Pocket Open Cardigan // This soft, stretchy cardigan in a gorgeous shade of pink is going to be my go-to once the weather cools down.

#6. Topshop Tortoiseshell Handle Tote // I bought this tote at Nordstrom, but the mustard color sold out quickly, so I was super excited to find it on the Topshop website!!! This is SUCH a good bag for under $50. It looks way more expensive than it really is, plus the color is so fun for fall.

#5. Leith Ribbed Cocoon Cardigan // Another great cardigan, this one is actually from the #NSale but it’s still in stock. I love the fit on this one, but it runs really big. Size down one from your smaller normal size; I have the XS.

#4. LOFT Shirttail Sweater // Another pretty sweater… you guys sure like your sweaters! This is another one that I’ve worn a few times already,; it’s soft and easy to throw on with jeans or pants.

#3. Hinge Print Pullover Blouse // I’m trying to do more blouses and not just sweaters, and I was thrilled with this find. I keep hoping it will go on sale, but not yet…

#2. Twist Front Sweatshirt // LOVE this fun “twist” on a basic sweatshirt, and it’s super soft and cozy and flattering too! What more can you ask for, really?

And in first place… Duh duh duhhhhhh…..

#1. LOFT Sweatshirt Trim Sweater // This sweater is so pretty and easy to wear. They dressed it up in the picture on the website with a leather skirt, but I like it best dressed down with jeans and booties, or even fashion sneakers.

What I Kept

For this section, I decided to use a shopping widget to share the items I kept. Please don’t feel upset or offended if I didn’t keep something you loved and/or purchased. I simply cannot keep everything; I don’t have room for it all, and that wouldn’t be good stewardship of my resources. So yes, some items I returned are great pieces, but they just aren’t what I need right now.

Also, some things were already in my closet before this series started, like from last spring or before, so I didn’t necessarily include all of those below, but some I did, if they’re still for sale and I think they’re worth recommending.

So yeah, here we go! There are two pages to this widget if you’re on a computer, so use the arrow on the right to scroll to the next one.


I hope you all found that fun! As always, I’m happy to answer any questions in the comments.
