Readers' Favs February 2018 - The Well Dressed Life

Every month, we round up your favorite finds from the previous four weeks. I love seeing the pieces you order from some of our posts.  It helps me continue to curate practical pieces specifically for you as I organize content for the coming months.

What’s special about this site is that, rather than showcasing expensive designer pieces that only a few people can really afford, we focus on wearable, well-priced items you can buy right now, that work in your “real life.”  When I review our monthly analytics report, I look for not only the most popular styles, but also the price points and sizes. Many of our outfit inspiration posts take forever to create because we try so hard to find options for as many readers as possible.

Here’s what you loved in February:

Readers' Favs February 2018 - The Well Dressed Life

Striped Top, $50  |  Tank, $14  |  Cardigan, $25  |  Varsity Tee, $45  |  Boyfriend Jean, $68  |  Rockstar Gray Jeans, $32  |  Gray Jeans, $189  |  Toner, $24  |  Tweed Jacket, $129

Striped Top, $50:  This striped top gives me so much life.  You can wear it with dark jeans, boyfriend jeans (as seen here) and white jeans in the spring and summer.

Tank, $14: This tank was a top seller for good reason.  So many of you are looking for that perfect layering piece, that pairs with a long cardigan and jeans.  The reason this works so well is because it falls from the body, drapes and has a subtle scoop hem. These bad boys are $14, so stock up.

Cardigan, $25:  Speaking of long cardigans and jeans, this H&M option will surprise you.  It comes is black, gray and pale pink.  We featured it here with gray jeans.  But you can pair it with any bottom you like.  It’s a fantastic transition piece as we move from winter to spring.

Varsity Tee, $45: It was no surprise to see this sporty, casual tee at the top of our list. Wear it on your next family vacation or just a busy weekend with the kids.

Boyfriend Jean, $68: How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans featured these jeans by Everlane, and was one of our most popular posts last month.  If you are looking for a relaxed jean, these are the grown up version of this popular style.

Rockstar Gray Jeans, $32 and Gray Jeans, $189: As many of you know, one of my personal “spend” categories is jeans.  Paige jeans work for my body type better than any other brand.  That said, these Old Navy jeans are a fantastic lower priced alternative.

Toner, $24:  Lots of readers picked up this toner by Murad.  Adding a gentle toner into my skincare routine has helped reduce the redness on my cheeks.

Tweed Jacket, $129:  It doesn’t get better than this tweed jacket.  Wear it to work with a black skirt or slim lined pants, or layer it over a sheath.  Make it work on the weekends with your favorite tee shirt and jeans.  It’ll be a real workhorse in you wardrobe.

Our Reader Favorites has always been one of our most popular series.  So when we redesigned our site, I knew I wanted to keep it.  Once a month, we round up all the items YOU loved the most, as a way to crowd source the best of the best.  I was so excited to check out or analytics and see that you have gravitated not only toward the items we talked about in our posts, but also what we’ve featured in some of our closets.  We kick off our first Reader Favorites of the year with some classic pieces and a few affordable, cozy tops to carry you to Spring.

Readers' Favorites - January - The Well Dressed Life Blog

Mixed Striped Sweater, $23 – The quintessential weekend sweater at a price you seriously cannot beat.  I picked it up in navy, but if you have the skin tone for it, the yellow is divine.

Moto Jacket, $55 – A simple way to look cool even if you’re not 🙂  Pair this with jeans or go-to black pants for a chic and sophisticated look.

Loafer, $90 – The pearl accent on these traditionally styled loafers adds a feminine and whimsical twist to a classic.

Turtleneck sweater, $60 – A piece to stock up on, ideal for layering, or add a statement necklace or scarf with a pair of slim lined pants.

Ponte Knit Trousers, Plus, $89 – I’m always so happy to see plus size options at the top of our analytic reports.  I try so hard to find alternatives for woman sizes that still flatter and show your shape.  These trousers are a great example of classic style, modified slightly to fit you best.

Ponte Knit Trousers, Misses, $68 – These trousers are great quality and an even better price.  Buy a few of these if you end up loving them.

Tie Bell Sweater, $35 – Just cozy and perfect for chilly days when you want to look lovely but have zero time for effort.

Jeans, $198 – Expensive, yes, but so comfortable, especially after they get a little lived-in.  I particularly love the higher waistband.  My over 35, 2-C-section belly likes it even more.
