November bestsellers!

November was a complete blur of gift guides, winter content and all the amazing sales during Cyber Week. Whew! Thank you to everyone who supported my content this past month. It was a very fun month with some great content. December is usually a much slower month for the blog and I’m ready to start winding down the year over the next few weeks. I plan to take some time off from posting later in December and I am already looking forward to that. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. There is still plenty of holiday and winter content left to get to this month! 

Today I’m pulling together the bestsellers from November. Each month when I pull together these posts there are usually a handful of items that were VERY popular (the cream rises to the top!) but with November being such a big shopping month there were SO MANY items that you all loved that I couldn’t narrow it down to the usual 5 or 6 items… I definitely had to throw in some extras. These are the items YOU all loved the most over the past month… and per the usual, you all have FABULOUS taste if I do say so myself. I truly love all of these pieces myself so I can see why you all love them as well.

half zip sweater – runs true to size, maybe a touch oversized, SUPER soft and cozy!
puff sleeve top – I went up a size because it runs a little small, fun and festive for the holidays!
grey cardigan, so soft and warm, true to size, I went with my usual size small.
stovepipe jeans, the perfect not-skinny-but-not-too-wide-leg jeans with plenty of stretch. I went down a size, they run big.
ring necklace, so pretty for a gift!
always pan, SUPER popular this holiday season, it’s a GREAT gift and seriously the best non-stick pan I’ve ever used. I’m ordering another one!
funnel neck sweatshirt – I love this one so much I own two! True to size.
Daphne coat – another item I love so much I own multiples, it’s perfect over dressier clothes or even over athleisure looks to elevate them. I wear a size 2.

October bestsellers!

 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.

(above) joggers
Sizing: These run a little big. I went down a size to XS.
These joggers are just the BEST. So comfortable but also nice thick fabric that still sucks you in (sometimes joggers can be too loose) and never bag out at the knees (super rare). Plus, they are under $50. You really can’t beat them!
Shown with: sweater, top, sneakers, bag is Polene

Sizing: True to size, I am in my usual size small.
The half zip sweater or sweatershirt is so on trend right now and I love that this option is super classic. It’s super warm and layers well.
Sizing: True to size. I am in my usual size small. This piece is a bit more fitted.
Classic, classic, classic! This sweater is nice and refined so while it works for everyday it also could work really well for the office or zoom meetings.
Shown with: jeans, loafers

Sizing: True to size, I am in a size 2, fits like a small.
This coat is a standby in my closet for fall and winter. It’s instantly refined and pulled together looking. I love it with jeans for dinner out or over leggings for errands. 
Shown with: sweater, mulesjeans, bag

(above) agolde jeans
Sizing: I always go with my bigger size with this brand. 
I just love agolde jeans lately, the few pairs I own are my GO-TO right now. This pair has the perfect amount of stretch to be flattering and comfortable. 
(above) ankle boots
Sizing: True to size.
These are SO beautiful and really comfortable. You can see a few ways to style them here

September bestsellers!

 I hope your October is off to a great start… it’s definitely felt more like fall where I live and I’m loving it. September was all about fall clothes on the blog and today I am rounding up the pieces that were YOUR favorite this month. It’s time for another bestsellers round up… 

These were the pieces you loved the most and I must say, you all have the best taste! Some of my favorite jeans, coats and fall pieces were some of your favorites too! Let’s take a look at the pieces…

(above) quilted jacket 
For the second month in a row, this jacket is a best seller! It’s SO cute and I’ve only worn it once so far (I have a feeling that will change later this month) and loved how comfortable and warm it was. I went down one size to an XS. You can see more jackets for fall in this post!

(above) cocoon blazer 
This gorgeous sweater blazer was a big favorite this past month. It’s super cozy and works great as a jacket too. I went down one size to an XS since this blazer does run quite big. You can see more blazers for fall in this post

This pair of jeans is so fun for fall with a slight flare at the hem. They have great stretch that is very comfortable while being flattering too. Because of the stretch I go with my smaller size for this pair of jeans. You can see more Madewell favorites in this post.

(above) cozy joggers 
This is an old post, but these joggers have been featured a few times here on the blog recently and also in my October Capsule which you can find here. They never stretch out and are the most flattering joggers I own, my husband calls them my ‘cute pants’. I went down a size in these joggers to an XS.

(above) Chloe tote 
You all went gaga for this tote and it’s on my wishlist too (I’m thinking maybe a Christmas gift to me, from me!) It’s just gorgeous! It was featured in this post originally. 
(above) cream cardigan 
Everyone loves a cardigan for fall! Me included! This one was super popular this month and I can see why. It’s very soft and the buttons are so pretty. I went with my usual size small for this piece. You can see more of my Madewell favorites in this post.

jillgg’s good life (for less)

It’s that time again! Time to round up last month’s bestsellers. August was the longest month EVER and seemed to just drag on… it was truly the dog days of summer in our house. I’m so thankful for the fresh start of September and all it brings with it. For August you all had fall on the mind too! Sweaters and a jacket and accessories show me you all were thinking fall and getting back to ‘regular’ life to some extent. Here are the items YOU ALL loved the most last month…

These Amazon finds are such gems. I’m really loving adding jewelry to my outfits again these days. It just feels a little extra special and fancy. You all loved these pieces too! You can find more Amazon jewelry favorites here

This $20 favorite was a fan favorite this past month for good reason. It’s beautiful fabric and such a good price. This piece runs big, I went down a size. This cardigan is featured in an H&M try on here!

This sweater was a super random find on Amazon since it’s a mens sweater. It’s incredibly soft and perfectly oversized. I highly recommend it. Since it’s mens sizing, it runs long and big. I went with a small for an oversized fit. You can find more Amazon favorites from August here

This cocoon coat was an instant favorite with you all. It was originally shown here and then I sneak peeked it on Instagram Stories and it was a bestseller right away. If you find J.Crew outerwear on sale and in stock and like it, definitely snag it. It’s such a rarity. This coat is 40% off right now so it’s a great time to shop! This jacket runs big, I went down one size.

This sweater is so classic and soft. I’ve used it a few times as a layer over tees and tanks and I can’t wait to wear it more this fall and winter.  You can find more recent J.Crew finds here and here.

 August is in full swing and I almost forgot to round up the bestsellers for July! These items are the ones YOU ALL loved the most for the month of July. Many of them are NSale finds and sold out so I will link directly to them if you want to check for restocks (I will keep an eye on them too) and then also try to link similar items.

(above) By far the bestseller for the month was these jeans which are sadly out of stock now or on some days very limited stock, I’ll watch for restocks but THIS pair is very similar. I went with my bigger size since this brand tends to run a little small for me.

(above) This sweater was another huge fan favorite – also for very good reason! It’s super soft and I love the boxy fit and funnel neck. I originally bought it in an XS (shown here) but ended up returning it for a small which is just slightly roomier. I can NOT wait for cool weather to wear this cozy piece!

(above) This sweater was another favorite during the NSale and it’s another one I personally love and can’t wait to wear. It’s affordable, super soft and such a classic. I went with down a size in this sweater since it does run a little big.
(above) These True & Co bras are always making the bestseller list! You all love them and I do too… so comfortable, thrown them in the wash (no delicate cycle necessary) and you can buy the original (on the left) OR the less expensive Target version (on the right), so there is one for every budget! I also have my eye on this one and will be snagging it soon – I’m patiently waiting for it to restock in my size.
(above) This cashmere scarf is from the NSale 3 or 4 years ago. It’s such a classic and so beautiful for fall and winter. I also like to travel with a cashmere scarf any time of year for cold cars or planes. I get cold so easy and this keeps me the perfect temperature.

June Bestsellers!

 It’s that TIME again… the month of June just flew by and I have a feeling July is about to be the same. Slow down summer, please! Let’s take a look at all YOUR favorites for the month of June from the blog and social… and I know I say this every month, but you all have the best taste!

(above) True & co bra
Shop at Nordstrom, shop at Amazon or shop the budget version here
I’ve been wearing these bras for about a year now and really they are the ONLY bra I wear. They are super comfortable and look great under tees, tanks, sweaters, you name it. You can shop from either Nordstrom or Amazon  depending on your preference. There is a budget version too! The only difference is that the straps aren’t convertible on the budget version (meaning they don’t switch from tank style to racerback). I have both versions, but slightly prefer the original over the budget version. I highly, highly recommend these… they were a huge seller last month for Amazon Prime Day and sadly aren’t on sale at the moment, but I will sound the alarm when they go back on sale!
Sizing: True to size, I followed the sizing guide to order.
(above) denim shorts
These denim shorts have now made the bestseller list like 3 or 4 months out of this year! They are FOR SURE a hit. I love the light wash and oversized fit and they are even on sale right now – yay! You really can’t go wrong with these and I see why everyone loves them! You can see them featured in my denim short review post HERE.
Sizing: I usually take a 26/27 in this brand and went with the 26. They are a bit oversized so they still are perfectly slouchy even in my smaller size.
I am obsessed with button front tops these days and this one is no exception… it’s super soft and oversized and you can see it styled HERE six ways. Spoiler alert: this top is super versatile. I’ll be sad when linen season ends this fall. 
Sizing: This top runs quite large, I’m in a size 0 and it’s still perfectly oversized. I recommend going down one size or maybe two.
These are one of my favorites for sure this month… I was glad to see you all loved them too! They are SUPER comfortable and the braided rope is so summery and fun. I’ve worn them A LOT to say the least and they still look great. They are perfect with jeans, shorts or dresses all summer. And they are affordable too. They were first featured in THIS post!
Sizing: I went with my usual size, but they are maybe a touch big. If you are between sizes or worried about them being too big, maybe go down a size.
This was a bestseller last month too! And it was also featured in my “what I packed for vacation” post HERE. I’m sad I didn’t end up wearing it on vacation, I just ran out of time! It’s incredibly pretty in person and is such a great summer piece.
Sizing: True to size, I am in my usual size small.

It’s already time for another bestsellers round up! I’m THRILLED June is finally here, but let’s take a look at the favorites from May… these are the favorites as voted by you all. And I must say you all have the BEST taste! 😉

bracelet set (above)

Originally featured in this Amazon Finds post!

These bracelets are SO on trend right now and so pretty in person. They are super affordable and I was afraid they would get tangled easily, but they really don’t! I highly recommend them!

black button front dress

Originally featured in this Target try-on post!

This gauze dress is SO cute and soft in person. I’m so glad you all loved it as much as I do. It’s equally perfect as a swim cover up, date night dress or for lounging around the house. I went up a size to medium (because it was all that was left in store) and it fits fine with the adjustable straps and elastic ruching in the back, but I would say it’s true to size. 

Shown with: hat, sandals

stripe muscle tank (above)

Originally featured in this Nordstrom try-on post!

These tanks are SO versatile. I have one from last year too and they always get lots of wear. They are super affordable with TONS of color available. They run big, I go down a size to XS.

pink sandals (above)

Originally featured in this Nordstrom try-on post!

These are so pretty in person. I originally saw them earlier this spring and they sold out super fast. They are back in stock and while they are quite stiff the first few wears, they break in nicely. I wear these A LOT these days. So cute with dresses or jeans.

blue print tank dress (above)

Originally featured in this New Arrivals post!

This dress is SO good you guys! Lightweight, beautiful pattern and I love the subtle high/low hem with a ruffle. 10/10!!!! It runs true to size, I am in my usual size small and there are lots of color combos. It’s perfect for date night, as a swim cover up or just around the house!

Shown with: sandals

April Bestsellers!

It’s officially MAY tomorrow! This spring is just scooting along and I’m really excited for May with hopefully lots of warmer days and the un-official start to the summer later in the month with Memorial Day! It’s going to be a great month. To wrap up April I am rounding up the bestsellers from this past month. These are the items YOU all loved the most… and you all have great taste 😉 since these are some of my personal favorite items that I purchased this month as well.  Let’s take a look…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Somehow THREE of the bestsellers this week also ended up being in one outfit at one point this month too. I love that you all loved these pieces because they were some of my favorites this past month as well. And they got A LOT of wear – both together and on their own mixed with other pieces. These are perfect spring staples. This cotton-cashmere sweatshirt is perfectly oversized (I went up a size to medium), these demi boot jeans are a great spring wash and perfectly stretchy (I went with my bigger size, but I could’ve gone down a size too since they are super stretchy) and these slide sandals keep selling out they are so popular, so if you see them in your size be sure to snag them!

(above) white jeans
These are my most worn white jeans and they were also the fan favorite from my recent white denim review post (here). They run a little big so I go with my smaller size on these. Mine are from last year and it looks like this years version is a sewn hem instead of a raw hem, just fyi.

This half zip is another no-brainer this month! I’ve been loving it for lounging around the house, walks with the dog and over my workout clothes. It’s cloud soft and has dolman sleeves for an extra cozy fit. It’s true to size. Shown with: leggings in ‘grey folkstone’

This is a fun trend for the summer that is also very flattering on the arms. This top is true to size, but it is a little cropped so you could go up a size if you prefer. It’s a simple and affordable top for summer!

jillgg’s good life (for less)

 Wow! March was a super fast month! With the longer days and the hustle and bustle of life somewhat returning, this month just flew by. I’m excited for April and warmer days and getting my kids back in sports full time – it’s going to be a great month. I can feel it!

Let’s take a look of the most popular pieces you all loved from the month of March! You all were in the mood for spring this past month… as was I. Sandals, denim shorts, summer blouses and swim cover ups made the list for March. Here is what YOU all loved the most last month!

These sandals are 100% the IT sandal for this season. They are so chic and fun and also a fun alternative to sneakers with athleisure for spring and summer. They run true to size.

tiered long sleeve swim cover up (here or here)
You all LOVED this tiered swim cover up! And I can see why… it’s just darling and so fun for lounging at the pool or beach this spring or summer. It’s nice and lightweight and super soft. This runs a little big, but I am in my true size small. You can see the full Nordstrom try on session here.

These shorts are a bestseller for the second month in a row! They are just great, I can see why you all love them. They run a little big. I’m between size 26/27 and went with the 26 for these. You can see my full round up of denim shorts for spring and summer here.

This gauzey striped blouse from Target is SUCH a classic. I love it for spring and summer and you all loved it too. It runs true to size. You can see the full Target try on session for spring here.

This bag was featured in this post and you all LOVED it. The quilted handbag is big for spring and summer and this bag is so cute!

I’ve been looking for that PERFECT white shirt for a while now and this one is it! It’s soft but still a little crispy and perfectly oversized. It runs big, I went down one size to XS. You can see the post where this is featured here.
