Let’s officially close out January with a round-up of your favorite items from the month.
If you are new to our community, we feature the top five reader favorites from every month as a way to help us collectively build our wardrobe. It’s so fun to see what you responded to.
This month, we have a designer feeling sweater for under $40, updated leggings, an affordable way to upgrade your pajama drawer, everyday sneakers, and an over-the-top, splurge-worthy clutch.
January Reader Faves
Waffle Knit Sweater
This sweater is such a great find! I’m embarrassed to admit what I’ve spent on sweaters in the past and didn’t like any of them as much as this one. You can see, it’s slightly longer in the back so you can wear it with leggings, but it’s not overwhelming.
Available in six colors in regular, petite and tall. Featured is the color “moonstone,” a sophisticated grey-blue. You can also get a cream and a light mauve that is gorgeous. The black and grey options are on sale for under $40.

Ponte – Knit Pants
Ponte-Knit Pants, $18
Speaking of leggings, these Ponte-knit pants are at Old Navy for under $20. The Ponte-knit makes them thicker than a traditional legging, so you don’t feel so “exposed.” They get hundreds of five-star reviews, also available in regular, petite, and tall. I’m wearing them in the photo above.
Satin Pajamas, $26
We may need to have a virtual pajama party because we all bought these in multiples! For under $30, these are an affordable upgrade for your pajama drawer, which, if you’re anything like me after 2020, needed to be burned.
They come in dozens of colors and seem to fit everyone well.
Below I’m wearing pale pink, and my oldest is in a pretty green. I’m wearing a large, Maddie is in a small.

Allbirds Sneakers, $95
If you need a daily sneaker that is more polished than what you wear to the gym, pick up a pair of Allbirds. They are incredibly comfortable, stylish, machine washable, available in a dozen color combinations and under $100.
Leopard Clutch, $275
It’s been a full year since any fashion-focused, expensive, not-a-basic bag made our top seller list.
Where are you going??
It doesn’t matter; I’m thrilled for you, and considering this a silver development – maybe we’ll have fun places to go in the spring.
