Fall, Looks

November 2, 2018

Happy November, I’m rounding up my October Top Fives!

I’m still trying to recover from Halloween. I have a Halloween Mom Hangover. Nope, not from alcohol. It’s from children who had way too much sugar. If you need us, we’ll be over here detoxing…

Alright, short and sweet today. Thank you for stopping by!

The Sweet Edit will be on the blog tomorrow…

October Top Fives: Best Sellers

1. My parka that’s been restocked + on sale! Run.  Comes in 4 colors and the gray has been restocked! I’m wearing size 2, but would do better with a 0. Size down if you’re in between. 

Plaid cape

2. My $39 plaid cape. Because who doesn’t love a cape? It’s like you’re a superhero, but also very warm. Win, win.

Madewell tee

3. This $14 Madewell tee. I need it in all 9 colors. These are my 4 favorite colors. I think. Don’t make me choose.

Blanket Scarf

4. My $13 blanket scarf! Comes in a bunch of colors.

Mama + baby matching beanie set

5. Our $10 mama + baby matching beanie set. Because in a year or two, she won’t want to match me anymore so I’m taking advantage of it while I can.

October top fives: hits
cable knit sweater

cable knit sweater (wearing XS) | denim (sold out, similar pair here) | kicks

This cable knit sweater is a definite hit and there’s nothing it can’t do. Layer it over your favorite dress or under this blazer or wear it alone. It’s so classic and versatile and comes in 5 colors and I have it in gray, too.

striped turtleneck, Leci't jeans, flatforms

striped turtleneck (wearing XS) | Levi’s jeans (size up) | flatforms

Mildly (and by mildly I mean not at all mildly) obsessed with this striped turtleneck . There are a few sizes left in black and white, but it comes in 5 colors. 

I ordered these Levi’s jeans earlier this month and they’ll be on the blog soon. I LOVE them, but real talk: my husband isn’t a fan. They are legit mom jeans: the rise is very high and they flatten out the booty. But, I like that look, sooooo…. Just be sure to size up, because they run small.

These flatforms are SO chic. This exact pair is almost sold out, but here are a few dupes here and here.

Striped dress

striped dress

This striped dress. ALL the heart eyes. It’s sweater material, so it feels cozy, but it’s also SO flattering and not at all bulky. I’m wearing size small, so if you’re in between, size up. I’ll be sharing 3 ways to style it on the blog next week.

Tretorn sneakers

Tretorn kicks (shop more Tretorn here)

This is my first pair of Tretorn sneakers, and it’s safe to say I’m sold. Not only are they suuuuuuper cute (obvs), but they’re also very comfy. They easily make any #ootd.

Blank denim black coat

Blank Denim black coatcable knit sweater 

Number one reason I’m looking forward to the temps dropping? This faux fur black coatAnd it’s less than $150. YOU GUYS. So good. I’m wearing XS.

October top fives: misees
Polka dot skirt

I really wanted to like this polka dot skirt and after I ordered it I kept envisioning all of these different outfit ideas (it’s boring, but it’s my life). Then, it arrived and I tried it on. Oh. Right. That’s when I remember that I’m not 5’10” and I have no business wearing a long pleated skirt. I do love the pattern, but it’s just too much material for my frame. Back it goes.

Faux fur jacket

BB Dakota Faux Fur Jacket (wearing XS) | striped tee (sold out, similar here for $19) | Blank denim

I shared this miss in my October Amazon Haul post, but I needed to include it here, too. It’s my duty to let you know what doesn’t work and what NOT to wear. This faux fur jacket runs SO big. I’m wearing the XS, and I’m drowning in it.
