BP Cocoon Cardigan


Left to Right- XS, Small, Large

FIT NOTES:  I am LOVING that BP has a cocoon cardigan this year for the sale! You may remember the Leith one from last year (which is back too.) but this one is at an even better price point. The fit is TTS. I wear an XS in this style.



FIT NOTES: Jeans are always my top purchases of the NSale. I plan on doing a full post on all my favorite Jeans, but these four pairs were instant winners. ALL pairs fit True to Size

Dreamers Cardigan



FIT NOTES: Dreamers always comes out with the most cozy pieces each and every year and this cardigan is an instant favorite. I am wearing the XS and Rachel has on the Large. Both Fit TTS.

Dreamers Sweater

FIT NOTES: Another tried and true favorite. I have this sweater in 3 colors and wear the XS. It is an oversized fit, but fits TTS.

Topshop Cable Knit Cardigan

CARDIGAN topshop

Left to Right US 2, US 4, US 8

BP T Scoop Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirts

Socialite Thermal 

THERMAL Socialite | JEANS Rag N Bone


FIT NOTES:This thermal fits a bit small They are meant to layer, but if you are looking for a loose,easy fit, size up. The camo print one I would size up 2 sizes in.  I am wearing an XS; .


Steve Madden Taupe Booties // Vince Camuto Pointed Toe Booties // Vince Camuto Grey Booties // ORDERED Steve Madden Perforated Booties

FIT NOTES: The booties this year are SO.GOOD. I couldn’t narrow them down to just one pair so I picked three different styles.  All fit TTS.

FIT NOTES: Every year Rebecca Minkoff comes out with a cross body and this year it is LEOPARD! Hello! This cutie will sell out fast, so buy not, no regrets haha. I am in love with this year round bag.

Halogen V Neck  Tunic

T SHIRT Halogen


FIT NOTES: This Tunic Tee is super slimming and perfect for layering! This is actually my favorite over the relaxed BP fit one, but both are great basics. I wear an XS in this style.

BP Plaid Top



FIT NOTES: Another popular item every year! This paid comes in multiple colors and fits TTS. I wear an XS in this style

Leith Midi Cardigan
