What Pretties Loved in August

We had such a great response to the What the Pretties Loved in July post that I decided to make it a monthly feature! It seems, that like me, you are fascinated to discover what other Pretties are buying and loving. Plus, I’ll take any opportunity to dive into the numbers and spreadsheets (which I totally love) and pull the top items for you all! Plus if you missed them the first time around, here’s your chance to snag them up before they are gone. By special request, I’ve also included the top three Alison + Aubrey items from the month too!

In descending order, here are the top ten most popular clicked on and purchased pieces featured on Get Your Pretty On in August plus the top three Alison + Aubrey items.

#10 – Kut from the Kloth Crop Straight Leg Jeans

Since all climates are NOT created equal, fall doesn’t automatically mean cooler weather. That’s why I thought it important to update and reshare one of my blog posts from last year to help those of us in warmer parts of the world make the fall transition. These crop straight leg jeans are the perfect item to help in that transition!

#9 – Black Studded Bootie

This is a trend and classic combo as you Pretties scooped these up in both black and the trendy snake print versions! These are perfect for fall and I can’t wait to see how you all styled them in our Facebook community Pretties Group! (Sizing tip – These booties run small; order up a half size.)

#8 – Chambray Button Down Shirt

A true classic, this chambray shirt was featured in the Five Ways to Wear Leopard Pieces and it seems like a few of our Pretties were eager to add it to their closet staples.

#7 – Utility Shirtdress

This shirtdress resurfaced in my back to school post for teachers and it’s still as popular and well-loved as ever! Easy, stylish, and versatile it can be paired with sandals or booties, styled solo, or add your favorite denim jacket! (Sizing tip – I got this dress in my regular size but overall reviews say it runs small. Size up if between sizes.)

#6 – Crewneck Pullover Sweater

Also from Summer to Fall Transition Outfits for Southerners, this pullover sweater is just the right thickness for this time of year whether you wear it by itself or if you find yourself somewhere that actually gets cold, you can easily layer on a jacket.

#5 – New Balance Sneakers

No reason you can’t be stylish in your sneakers! These pair perfectly with your shorts and your crop jeans and were featured in this blog post.

#4 – White Raw Hem Denim Shorts

Okay, last favorite item from my summer to fall transition pieces are these amazing white raw hem shorts. These have been one of my go-to favorites. They are comfortable, have some length to them, and they aren’t see-through. What more could you ask for in a pair of white shorts?

#3 – Soft Tie-Waisted Shorts

Summer may be coming to an end but these shorts were just too comfy to pass up and apparently you all thought so too! My partnership with Walmart over the last few months has yielded some amazing additions to my wardrobe and these are no exception! Easy to wear, cute print, and did I mention comfortable?

#2 – Leopard Cotton Crewneck Sweatshirt

If you haven’t already figured it out, I love to find pieces that are both stylish and comfortable and this totally fits the bill. Also appearing in the Five Ways to Wear Leopard, this item looks amazing and with all the comforts of your favorite sweatshirt. I first posted this item through Nordstrom but sadly they only have one size left but don’t fear, I found it directly through the J.Crew site and they have all sizes available, score!

#1 – J.Crew Factory Pull-On Printed Bias Midi Skirt

And your top shopped item was this leopard skirt which appeared in the Five Ways to Wear Leopard post where I expressed my complete and utter joy that leopard was still a huge trend for fall. Although it’s never really gone out of style, it’s just bolder this season. (Sizing tip – runs large; size down if between sizes.)

Alison + Aubrey

Recently I featured a sneak behind the scenes at Alison + Aubrey and shared what we learned over the past year. I also introduced some of our new pieces that I’m very excited about! For our Pretties it was all about adding a little something to our wrists and taking our Apple Watches up a notch! Here are the top three loved items from Alison + Aubrey.
