Top Ten in February

Good morning on this first day of March! Today I’ve got my Top Ten in February, which is a roundup of your favorite items from the past month. Let me know if you snagged any of these items and how they worked out for you!

Top 10 Reader Favorites in February 2023

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.

also wearing: stripe sweater // MOTHER denim // flats // earrings // similar bag // sunnies (option)

#10. Sam Edelman Water Repellent Cotton Blend Trench Coat // Bright colors are trending this spring, and this orange trench coat is a great way to participate in a way that is classic and sophisticated. It runs true to size, or size up if you have a larger chest.


also wearing: AGOLDE shorts // Rails button-up // sunnies (option) //necklace set // bracelets one & two

#9. Michael Stars Maya V-Neck Tank // File this in the spendy but #worthit category, this tank is such good quality. It’s nice and thick and soft and stretchy, with a flattering neckline and bra-friendly straps. It runs true to size, or size up for a less body-con fit.


also wearing: bracelet // watch (option) // purse

#8. CeCe Ruffle V-Neck Blouse // Such a pretty little blouse for work or church or date night, and it comes in a bunch of colors. Wear it with jeans or pants, or even a skirt. It’s true to size!


also wearing: jeans // sandals (also at Zappos) // sunnies (option)

#7. Rails Charli Stripe Linen Blend Button-Up Blouse (also at Bloomingdale’s) // This splurge-worthy linen blend button-up in a pastel stripe is fresh and fun for spring. It pairs perfectly with white or blue jeans. It’s true to size, or size up for a more relaxed fit.


also wearing: necklace set // denim jacket

#6. Joella Sleeveless Dress (also at Saks & Nordstrom) // This dress is the perfect easy-breezy one-and-done answer to casual dinners out, lunch with friends, or you can even wear it as a swimsuit coverup. It runs true to size.


also wearing: MOTHER denim // earrings // similar bag

#5. LOFT Stripe Crochet Textured Sweater // This cotton sweater in nautical stripes with a subtle blouson sleeve is a must-have for spring. I love how it pairs with blue jeans and white jeans, and I can even see wearing it with white shorts for a mild summer evening by the pool.


also wearing: Gap Factory sweater // Dolce Vita booties (more sizes here) // earrings // necklace // similar bag

#4. Gap Factory Mid Rise Bootcut Jeans with Washwell // These budget-friendly bootcut jeans were a happy surprise for this self-proclaimed denim snob. Seriously, the fit and feel is spot-on, and the light wash is right on trend for spring. These are a really nice alternative to my favorite MOTHER Weekenders.


also wearing: sandals // similar necklace

#3. LOFT Tie Waist Jumpsuit (petite sizes) // Jumpsuits are a nice alternative to dresses, and this one is soft and stretchy and comfortable in a black jersey knit that you can dress up or down. It runs true to size, but a little short in the body. I am in the small, but you could try sizing up if in between.


also wearing: sweater // boots // sunnies (option) // similar necklace // earrings

#2. AG Farrah High Waist Bootcut Jeans in 2 Years Dropout // These are my go-to black bootcut jeans, very flattering and a really nice wash with just a hint of distressing that keeps them from being too dressy. They’re on sale, so sizes are limited, and they run small, so definitely size up if in between, and you may even want to size up one from your regular size.


And the winner is! Drumroll please . . . 🥁

 also wearing: cargo pants // sandals // hat // bracelet

#1. Faherty Dream Desmond Top (also at Bloomingdale’s & Zappos) // This top is a really nice quality piece, and it comes in several nice neutral colors. I love how it pairs with these olive cargo pants, but it also looks great with blue jeans or shorts. It’s a bit spendy, but I feel like the quality is worth it. Evidently a lot of you do too, since it’s in first place this month.

And that’s it for February! Let’s hope March is kind to us… it is typically my least favorite month of the year, but I’m choosing to remain positive. Maybe we’ll get an early spring this year!

  1. It’s always fun to see what others are buying. It looks like Evereve just temporarily lowered prices on lots of spring items. Of course, some items in the order I’m waiting for have been marked down.

  2. Didn’t order any of the Feb. items this go around, but not because I didn’t like them. I guess it takes me longer to get to buying Spring clothes. LOL I’m trying to think about my purchases and make wiser choices this go around. I did lots of purging of my closet in the last months. I’m like you, March is one of my least favorite months. I think because when it turns March, our mind says Spring, but i live on the West Coast and the weather can be like Feb. here in March. Our Springs can be long with lots of rainy days. I’m so ready to just wear Spring clothes and mules or sandals. I still plan to wear my clogs too, even if they aren’t trending as big as last year. I love clogs with a cropped straight or a little wider. Looking forward to your Spring blog content to come. PS So glad you found the new gluten free bakery. Happy b’day to Paul. He sounds like a great support for you and your blog.

    1. That is wise, and I am right there with ya! If it wasn’t for this blog, I would not be tempting myself with spring shopping just yet. Spring is long and unpredictable here too.

  3. Happy Birthday 🎂 to your hubby! It’s wonderful that he supports your interests.

    I am unable to think about spring fashions until later due to location too. I’d be happy just to wear jeans again, after having hip surgery.

  4. Happy Birthday to Paul! I hope that his special day is perfect for him. I did not purchase any of the top ten.

  5. I got a pair of the Gap Factory Mid-Rise Boot Cut Jeans with Washwell based on your recommendation and LOVE.THEM. You are so right about the fit and feel being spot-on and at a perfect price point! I can’t wait to wear them! Thank you!

  6. Love several things on your list and have a few in my cart. Can you give your thoughts on the Tory Burch slides you are wearing with the olive pants. I want to purchase them, but want to know if they are comfortable and easy to walk in. Also, do you think they will stretch out thus making your foot slide. Thanks!

  7. These Top 10 posts are always fun to read! I’m ready to buy the Loft sweater, and actually just ordered the striped sweater from Gap that was in your post from yesterday. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to wear it, though. We have already hit 80° here this week! 🥴 Happy Birthday To Your Paul!!!
