Last Week’s Bestsellers:

1. V-Neck Long Sleeve Sweater Dress – Top seller TWO WEEKS in a row!!! I love it so much I debated getting another color!!! Should I!?!? I wear a Small and I would size down if in between sizes! What I love about it is that it is NOT clingy, which is a plus!!

2. Colorblock Cardigan – This cardigan came back in stock and now is almost sold out again! It’s pretty much a Madewell dupe cardigan for way less! It comes in a lot of colors, but the burgundy stripe is definitely the prettiest (in my opinion)!! Go TTS in this one!

3. Leopard Print Long Sleeve Cardigan – Y’all went crazy for this cardigan when I shared it, because all leopard cardigans that come online just always sell out so fast, even before I can share them! Well I got in my cardigan and I think it fits oversized. Size down if you want a more fitted look, TTS for an oversized look. There is also this one that has buttons, pockets and runs a bit oversized as well.

4. Heeled Scrunch Riding Boots – These were some of my FAVORITE boots last year and I am so happy they restocked them! They even come in a gorgeous Cognac color too! If between sizes, I would say size up especially if you plan to wear with socks! Here is another VERY similar boot option with a tad less scrunch. Click here for a roundup of a ton of new Target shoes!

5. Luxe Knit Cowl Neck Sweater Tunic – This one is on sale for $30 through Saturday night! It’s a tunic that covers your bootie, which is awesome and comes in some great colors!!

    To me paying rent while traveling feels more like paying for your stuff to have a place to stay while you are gone. So in that way it doesn’t seem quite so inefficient. You could always invite a house sitter to stay and look after things at which point it’s like a positive externality… I don’t know if that seems better to you.
