Today I’m sneaking in the October bestsellers a little early… Monday is officially NOVEMBER (wha?) and I will be launching my gift guides next week Monday so this post is launching a little early to leave space for those. The bestsellers are all about what YOU all loved the most this past month. It was a cozy month for shopping… joggers, coats and lots of sweaters. Fall is in full swing and I’m really enjoying wearing all my cozy pieces and looks like you all are enjoying shopping for all the cozy pieces too! Let’s take a look at what you all loved the most this month.
J.Crew is my go-to for winter coats. I find their coats to be perfectly warm and classic. Some of these are over 5 or 6 years old and still favorites. Today I will outline their warmth and sizing information for you all if you are in need/want of a new winter coat for this season. Living in Michigan I consider myself a somewhat pro at winter coats, they get A LOT of wear and I never feel too guilty adding a new style or two to my closet each year because I know they will last forever and serve me for many seasons to come!
I wear these coats all winter long, but some are warmer than others. I ordered them from least to most warm – I’ll chat more about warmth for each coat below too.
What is better than window shopping? (okay, maybe real shopping! But still…) I love shopping for fall and winter… give me ALL the cozy! Today I found some really gorgeous new arrivals for you all. This fair isle sweater is on my wishlist. How about these black shearling clogs – so so cute and cozy! If you are shopping for gifts these fingerless gloves or this monogrammed tote would make great gifts. I have this quilted jacket in my cart right now and your and my favorite cut of jeans is now available in black! There are so many good picks here, I hope you enjoy them…
Today I’m answering some of YOUR questions recently… from sneakers, to jeans, to warm sherpa options for fall… let’s dig into your questions!
Q. I’m looking for simple white sneakers that go with jeans and leggings/joggers?
A. There are SO many fun options… here are some that I love for both casual with jeans and more athleisure looks with leggings and joggers. I included all price points so there is truly something here for everyone!
Q. I’m feeling hesitant about making the jump from skinny jeans to straight leg jeans. Which styles should I try?
A. I have three recommendations that won’t feel like a huge jump in styles but that are also still right on trend. The stovepipe jeans are a very slim straight jean with lots of stretch, they are basically the perfect baby step from skinny jeans. The demi boot crop are another great option. They fit like a skinny jean on the top with a small little flare at the ankle which is so cute with flats and sneakers. Finally, if you want to try a true straight leg jean that is still really easy to wear I recommend the perfect vintage. They are super flattering and comfortable and perfectly modern.
Q. I’m looking for a new sherpa for fall? What cute styles have you seen around?
A. There are SO many and boy, do I love a sherpa. Here are my favorites!
Q. After having babies I need to start my closet over from scratch. I’ve gotten rid of lots of items but what should I add back in?
A. This is so common and you aren’t alone! I had the same experience after I had my kids. I had been pregnant off and on for three years and then transitioned from working full time to staying at home full time. I highly recommend starting a Pinterest board and seeing what styles you are drawn to and use those cues to start. I also highly recommend checking out my Capsule Collections for pieces that mix and match well and also lots of ideas on how to style those pieces. You can see the September capsule here and the October capsule here.
These joggers have been a bestseller all month. I just LOVE them and wear them a lot and they were featured in the October Capsule as well. I’ve gotten lots of inquiries on more ways to style them. Today I’ve got some really fun and easy outfit ideas with joggers for fall. Todays outfits are some simple ways to dress up your joggers a little. I’m all for making pulled together looks very comfortable, so these looks are the perfect balance.
I love these joggers because they are super flattering, they fit a little more like a legging up top with some compression. And then they are nice and slim through the leg and the fabric doesn’t easily bag out in the knees which I really appreciate. I went down a size in these joggers. I’m in the size x-small.
I’ve said it a bunch, but nothing beats Madewell for fall and winter. I just LOVE their cozy sweaters and gorgeous fall hues. They do this season SO well. Right now you can get 20% off your order of $100 or 30% off your order of $200 or more on select items. I always love to shop a sale from Madewell – it’s definitely the best time to buy!
I found some really beautiful fall pieces that I can’t wait to share with you… sweater weather has definitely arrived in my neck of the woods so I’m excited to dig in with some of these new arrivals.

After a few false starts, sweater season is officially, officially here in the Midwest! It’s cozy season and I’m loving wearing all the sweaters right now. Warm drinks, cozy sweaters, the fireplace going and crunching leaves are just a few of the reasons I adore this season. Today I’m partnering with Walmart to chat about all the hottest trends for sweaters this fall. From statement knits to on trend styles Walmart is your go-to source for a fall refresh.
The polo-style sweater is a really fun trend this fall. It’s such a fun nod to the 90’s while being modern and easy to wear at the same time. This one works with jeans for everyday wear or could be dressed up with trousers for the office or a zoom call. You know I can’t resist stripes any time of year and they are perfectly classic for fall. I love this brown and white striped sweater. It’s so soft and has a tiny little puff sleeve that is right on trend this fall. And of course I just love a chunky knit this time of year. This collared cardigan is so pretty in person and the color is just beautiful for fall. All three of these sweaters are under $30 making them so affordable too!
This fall, make Walmart your go-to for all your fashion and household needs. I love the convenience of their FREE 2-day shipping (and free returns) on orders over $35 or the FREE curbside pick up which is especially handy for groceries and household goods.
Let’s take a look at these beautiful sweaters…
Today’s post is a super fun one… we are talking COLD weather. And while I am one that doesn’t love cold weather, I do have to say… I’m here for cold weather fashion. Haha! Scarves and hats and boots and coats are some of my favorite pieces to shop for and when the cold weather strikes you really want to make sure you have the right clothing for it. After living in the midwest for my whole life and snowy Michigan for over half my life I’ve gotten pretty good at layers and keeping warm.
I thought it would be fun today pull together some cold weather inspiration a little early for those of you that might be booking cold weather travel. Wine tasting, leaf peeping, trips to the mountains or even a little early start on ski season is popular this time of year and I’ve got three looks perfect for those activities. Or if you just want to get an early start on winter shopping… that works too!
Stay tuned later this week for some travel inspiration for warm weather climates as well. Since that is also a very popular way to escape in the fall too…
I am in LOVE with these boots! This look is perfect for a road trip to see leaves and stop at some of your favorite sights. I would wear this for a leaf peeping trip in Northern Michigan with a stop at our favorite brewery or lunch spot!
Wine tasting in the fall is so fun here in Michigan and I’m sure in other popular wine localities around the country. Or if you even brewery tours/stops. I love that this look is a little more dressed up but perfect for staying comfortable and warm.
Layers are key when the cold weather strikes! This look is perfect for antiquing and brunching with friends in the mountains.
