GG Reader Buys: The Bestsellers of 2021

Happy Monday! 

How was your weekend? The snow is coming down like crazy here in Chicago! (I’m listening to Neal shovel like crazy downstairs as we speak, haha!) It’s a winter wonderland! While I’m not a big fan of winter I have to admit, it is really beautiful and extra cozy

Each January, I go through all of my analytics and round up the most popular products from the past year–and today is that day once again! Below you’ll find the most popular top-sellers (that are still in stock!) from 2021. There is a little bit of everything on this list–from warm weather dresses to warm parkas, the comfiest underwear, and of course, plenty of comfy staples.

Thank you for all of your support in 2021–each time you purchase through my affiliate links, it helps me as a small woman-owned business, at no cost to you! It all adds up over time, and I am so grateful! ♥️

2021 Bestsellers: 

Amazon Coat:

I bought this coat this year because it’s expandable, so the perfect parka to wear with June in her carrier–what I was not prepared for was how truly WARM It is. It’s as warm as my expensive coats for $159!

Of course, it’s not made for baby wearing, or pregnancy, it just happens to work great for both–but the expandable sides come in handy for accommodating extra chunky layers, too! If you’re looking for a warm, inexpensive coat, can’t say enough good things. Plus–it has so many pockets, I rarely even need a purse, haha!

Sizing: I would say stick to your normal size–I got a small and since it has expandable zippers at the sides, it’s perfect to wear with June, but when the sides are zipped closed it fits me nicely when wearing it alone. If you have a much larger/older baby you’d like to wear it with though, you could consider sizing up!

 

ABLE Abera Backpack Purse:

My favorite all-purpose, do-it-all bag! From travel, to work to diaper bag, I’m always grabbing for this bag! The leather is so beautiful, it holds a lot of stuff, it’s very comfortable and it’s ethically made!  It’s also an incredible price for the quality! Use code JESSKEYS10 for 10% off your ABLE order!

True & Co Wireless Bralette:

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again — if I could afford to buy every one of you this bra, I would. It’s that great — I have it in four colors! It’s a totally wireless bralette that feels like a second skin. It also has removable cups AND adjustable straps so you can criss-cross them or wear them regularly.

Sizing: Runs TTS.

Blondo OTK Boots:

You all know what a fan I am of Blondo boots! Probably my #1 bestseller in my CAREER history. They come out with a new version every year, and this is this year’s iteration. The most practical boots you’ll ever buy–they go with everything, keep you so warm, and you can walk through deep puddles, slush, and snow, and they’ll still look beautiful. Sizes are almost gone but check both Nordstrom and Bloomingdales!

Sizing: TTS

Lululemon Align Bike Shorts: 

Just like the famed align leggings (which I love) but shorts–great for low-impact activities like yoga, pilates, and lounge. They are so soft and strechy, I lived in them postpartum and love all of the colors they come in!

Sizing: Lulu runs SUPER small as a general rule but the Align shorts run like the Align leggings–they’re SO stretchy that they can accommodate a wide range of sizes. I wear size 6 in the leggings but also bought 8’s when I was super pregnant and the 8’s still fit me great!

For details of all my favorite bike shorts, check out this post!

Madewell Straight Leg Jeans:

These are the quintessential perfect vintage jean–I love the slim, straight leg cut, the high waist, and the soft denim! They make your butt look great, too!! Note: They look much lighter on the website, but this is the exact wash called the ‘Fitzgerald’ wash!

Sizing: These will feel like they run VERY VERY small at first. But they will stretch and mold to your body! I am wearing my normal “pandemic” size which is a 26 and they stretched out to be the perfect fit for “out in public” jeans or “wearing for a few hours” jeans. But if I wanted them to be like, roomy pandemic jeans, I would’ve gone up a size! (I’m 5’6 for height reference).

See how I styled them a few ways for fall in this post!

Amazon Tunic Sweater:

I like to call this my Diane Keaton sweater as it has quite a lot of volume and material but still makes me feel very chic. The long length makes it the perfect thing to wear with leggings (it’s even longer in the back!) and it comes in several colors!

Sizing: TTS- Order your normal size- it’s an oversized fit!

See how I styled it in black and pink in this post!

 

 

Freda Salvador D’Orsay Sneaker:

My investment pair of white sneakers! I lusted over these sneakers for over a year before pulling the trigger. I know that these sneakers are expensive (granted, they’re under $300–they’re no Golden Goose). But I love this small women-owned brand. And am more inclined to spend money on their shoes than anywhere else.

These shoes are so well made. And I know I’ll have them for years and years. The unique cutouts are so fun without being too trendy and elongate the leg. The leather is super soft, so they’re incredibly comfortable right out of the box, and they wipe off easily!

Sizing: TTS!

Check out four favorite pair of white sneakers (including these) in this post!

Extra-long iPhone Charger Cable: 

The exact charger cord I bought to bring to the hospital with me (one of your most popular reccos!) This is a really reputable brand and not a cheap one that will stop working after a few months. It also comes in several colors!

Amazon Short Mumu Dress:

My “hot-weather house dress!” I lived in this dress throughout summer! It’s super cool and breezy and so soft! Heads up: I also ordered it in navy and white and I’m returning those versions because they’re a super weird cheap-feeling material, not the same as the floral print that you see above, which is really soft! Also great for pregnancy and postpartum. Check out my full review and see how I styled it in this post!

Sizing: I sized up and went with a medium and love the way it fits!

 

Target Ultra Soft Sheets:

Is there anything better than sliding into fresh, ultra-luxurious sheets after a long day? These are the luxe sheets of your dreams! They are made with Lyocel, which is naturally cooling and moisture-wicking, making them the perfect sheets for summer in particular, but I love them year-round! I love the “natural” color, which is an off-white, light beige. It’s a nice mix-up from the standard white sheets!

Check out my full sheets review in this post!

ABLE Maha Leather Jacket:

The most wonderful leather jacket that comes in three colors (I have two of them!) I can vouch that the whiskey color and black are equally as beautiful. I brought both to Paris with me and wore both often— I can’t say enough good things about it! Use code JESSKEYS10 for 10% off your ABLE order! 

See how I’ve styled it several ways in this post!

Sizing: TTS (However, I sized up for a roomier fit!)

Blondo Sneaker Booties:

I added these to my wardrobe this season and they’ve already become a big hit. Easy on/off, so comfortable–great for travel, but the biggest plus is that they’re waterproof–I got them to throw on in the winter (easy to get on/off like UGGS, but actually waterproof and won’t get wet/soggy/salty!) They also come in black. (Note, as I get this question a lot: they’re faux sherpa lined only around the ankle, not fully lined!)

Sizing: TTS

 

Hill House Ellie Nap Dress:

Perhaps THE dress of the pandemic?! I’m such a fan of the nap dress! I think the best part about it is that the material/ruching is substantial enough that you don’t have to wear a bra. It’s SO FAST to throw on yet still makes you feel beautiful. It’s comfy enough to wear around the house, and cute enough to wear with either sneakers for a casual occasion or with cute heels for a dinner date! Depending on the color way you get, you can also layer a thin turtleneck underneath and make it a winter dress!

Sizing: Runs big, go down a size. I got XS.

 

Amazon Convertible High/Low Waist Bikini:

I loved this bikini so much last year, I ordered it in two more colors–I now have the red polka dot, leopard print and the blue and white stripe! It can be high-waisted or rolled down to sit lower on the waist! I also love the bottoms–not too cheeky, not complete coverage, the perfect in-between. The back is not adjustable (but it’s very stretchy) but the straps are! See how I styled it in this post!

Sizing: I would say it runs TTS, if a little big.

Sezane Gaspard Jumper:

THE iconic Sezane sweater, IMO! I’ve owned this sweater in light pink for a couple of years now but recently went for the red after mulling it over for about a year. I love that this sweater is reversible (you can wear the buttons in the back or in the front!) I find it very easy to dress up and down for lots of different occasions. See how I styled it in Paris in this post!

Sizing: TTS (wearing size small, which is slouchy, if you’d prefer it more form-fitting, go down as size!)

Under Armour Undies: 

The best no-show undies! I wear these seamless thongs under anything spandex- leggings, bike shorts, etc.! They’re so comfortable that I’ve amassed several pairs at this point and they’ve become my go-to underwear. And I honestly think they will convert even the most avid thong underwear haters into thong lovers. They also come in a 3-pack for under $25!

See my full review in this post!

Leather Touchscreen Gloves: 

I shared these cashmere-lined gloves as a holiday gift idea and I’m so glad so many of you loved them — for gifts and yourself! They look so luxe and are touchscreen-friendly, which is hard to find, and they’re such a great price point!

ABLE Merly Jean Jacket: 

The jean jacket I’ve been living in! If you’re looking for the perfect lived-in, super soft, oversized jean jacket, this is it! I like it because it’s different than my classic jean jacket! It’s got a more vintage feel, it’s WAY softer (SO SO SOFT) and more comfortable, and I think it adds a little more personality to your outfits! Use code JESSKEYS10 for 10% off your ABLE order! Check out my full review in this post!

Sizing: I personally found that I liked sizing up to a medium better because I wanted a more relaxed fit, but the small still looks cute! It just depends on how you want it to fit, but overall, the consensus among you guys was to go up a size!

Amazon Bra/Crop Tops: 

The comfiest bra/crop tops ever! I lived in these during pregnancy and still think they are the ultimate lounge piece! Unlined, ribbed, and incredibly stretchy, they can be used for anything — to sleep in, low-impact workouts, lounge bra, crop top for layering — anything!  Buy them alone or in a 2- or 3-pack! I have several colors! I have a full detailed review of these bras/crop tops in this post!

Sizing:

I have mediums (because I bought them during pregnancy) and they are supportive enough for me and what I use them for, without being too tight that they’re uncomfortable for long periods of time. My normal size is a small, which I would want if I wanted compression. (The site recommends going up a size if you don’t want any compression.)

 

Thanks again for all of your support in 2021! ♥️
