Top 10 Most Popular GG Reader Buys in January

Feb 9, 2021

Happy Tuesday!

Can we talk about how quickly February is flying by? Did January not feel like the longest month ever? Spring is on the horizon! Huzzah! In fact, the first week of February went by so quickly that I am just now getting January’s bestseller’s post up, haha! 

Below you’ll find the top 10 bestsellers of the month, in case you missed them the first time! Lots of warm and cozy quarantine-approved pieces to get you through the rest of a pandemic winter! (And of course, Agatha Crispy comin’ in hot. Literally. ????) 

Let’s jump in!

Top 10 January Bestsellers

Anrabess Amazon Turtleneck Sweater

Four Cozy Tunic Sweater + Leggings Outfits

LeggingsSweaterSorel snow boots (mine are the black/brown color–and 25% off!), cashmere beanie (only $39!), similar scarf 

First up —  a great pandemic staple! This sweater’s long length is perfect for pairing with leggings, and it’s nice and roomy while still being chic. See how I styled it in pink in this post.

Sizing: TTS (it is an oversized fit. I’m wearing a small. Note the black fits a bit differently than the pink color I have, and is longer–so each color might be a little different.) 

Nordstrom Cowl Neck Sweatshirt

Nordstrom Cowl Neck Sweatshirt

Sweatshirt, Leggings, (Uggs are sold out!) 

This is a great sweatshirt! It’s SO soft and definitely a staple to wear around the house, running errands, etc! I also like that it’s polished and put together enough to be suitable to wear for a zoom call. It also comes in four other colors! See how I styled it five ways in this post.

Sizing: TTS (I sized up to a medium for a looser/longer fit).

AE Mom Jeans 

The Top Bestsellers of 2020

Jeans, Sweater (one of my favorites lately!) (Love this similar turtleneck version), Old mules

My “quaranjeans!” AKA really soft, comfortable jeans that are slightly oversized so they are A. accomodating to one’s new quarantine size (if applicable) and B. comfortable to sit in while working from home all day! Perfect for feeling put together at home, but comfortable enough to actually enjoy wearing them all day at said home ???? P.S. I’m wearing the “Cool Classic” wash here–they come in lots of washes! 

Sizing: Run TTS. I wear a size 4. 

Biden/Harris Sweatshirt

Women for Biden call recap | Top 10 January Bestsellers

A lot of you must have snagged this Biden/Harris collegiate-style sweatshirt to rep for the inauguration! yay!! It’s a good one that will always remind you of this special/crazy/significant time in life. It’s also from an Etsy shop and supports a small business!

Sizing: I ordered a large because I wanted it very oversized. It runs true to size. 

Aerie Leggings

Aerie Leggings | Top 10 January Bestsellers

Sweatshirt, Leggings, Slip on slipper/sneakers 

I continue to get glowing reviews of these leggings every week from you guys! By far one of my most worn items over the past several months, these Aerie leggings feel exactly like Lululemon Align pants, come in an array of great colors, and they’re usually on sale- (right now they’re on sale for $30!) They are such a great find, and I’m so glad you guys like them as much as I do!

Sizing: True to size! (I have both smalls and mediums and both fit TTS!) 

Viv Collection Fleece Lined Faux Leather Leggings 

Viv Collection Fleece Lined Faux Leather Leggings  | Top 10 January Bestsellers

Fleece tunicLeggingsBeretBoots (hurry, they’re almost sold out!) similar wrap (on sale!) 

A necessary purchase if you live in a cold-weather climate during this pandemic: fleece-lined leggings. I found these after scouring Amazon for a really warm option. They’re lined with a brushed fleece and while the faux leather material is admittedly cheap feeling (you get what you pay for), it actually really helps block the wind and they’re much cuter than regular leggings!

Sizing: Run TTS. 

Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven 

Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven | Top 10 January Bestsellers

I know you want to know how to get my high school football coach lewk but sadly my turtleneck/sweatshirt combo is old ????

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know I’ve fallen head over heels for Agatha Crispy — my air fryer/toaster oven combo ????I’ve been testing out different ways to use it and I’m loving how many delicious things I can make with way less effort and time! More to come in an in-depth blog post, but it looks like a lot of you have already purchased one for yourselves! 

Sorel Emelie Boots

Sorel Emelie Boots

I’m always happy to share a cute AND functional winter boot when I find one — and these Sorel boots pass the test! They are fully waterproof, have sherpa detailing, and have incredible traction. See how I styled them in this post and this post!

Sizing: Run TTS. I would say they are maybe a bit narrow, so if you have wider feet you may want to consider going up a half size

Lululemon Keep Moving Pants 

On a High Note Vol.21 | Lululemon Keep Moving Pants 

(Sweater and mules are both old–can’t find alternatives I’m obsessed with–sorry!) 

These are the best “do everything” pants. They are a bit more pulled together than your average sweats, but are still super comfortable! Fancy joggers perhaps?! I love all the colors they come in, too! Wear them for a full athleisure look, lean into a cozy vibe with a sweater, or even dress them up!

Elfa Over the Door Organizing Rack 

My Favorite Organizing Racks Ever

(Top is old but similar here!) 

I posted about my favorite organizing racks at the beginning of the year (because ’tis the season to purge and organize everything you own!) and they are still on sale- 30% off! We have an Elfa over the door organizer on every one of our doors. They are the best use of space I’ve ever seen. Read more about my love for these guys in this post!

I’m so glad you guys are loving these finds as much as I am! Have a great day!
