Alicia Wood Lifestyle- Top 25 Reader Favorites For August 2020

Today, I’m sharing the Top 25 Reader Favorites for August. These are the items that YOU clicked on, purchased the most, and loved! It has been so fun to see what you are all most interested in & shopping for!

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan / White T / Commando Faux Leggings / Camo Golden Goose (new version)

The most popular item of the month was…this pair of Golden Goose sneakers! While the ones that I have are sold out, you are loving the similar ones that I linked. Another reader favorite this month is pictured above with the sneakers: the famous Barefoot Dreams Sweater! You can’t go wrong in ordering this! I have it in multiple colors, and it has become a staple in my wardrobe.

BeautyBio’s GloPro Set

I wanted to share that if you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet, now is your chance! The sale ends on Sunday, August 30, and there are still some really good pieces left. This high/low red fit & flare dress is still available and beautiful on! I can’t believe that the GloPro set from BeautyBio is still in stock. It’s such a good deal and something I use regularly.

You can access all of my edits Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tab on my website menu bar above.  You can shop the categories individually on these pages on my site: Coats and JacketsDressesDenimShoes and BootsSweaters and Tops, Handbags and AccessoriesBeauty Exclusives, Home and GiftsMen, and Active Wear.

Other favorites this month include this top from Tuckernuck currently on sale for only $48, this terry tunic from my collection with Cabana Life, and this cute quilt from my daughter’s blue & white bedroom.

To see the full list of top 25 reader favorites for August, I’ve rounded them up in a boutique below!

There are a few great sales and promotions going on this weekend that I wanted to be sure and share with you!  Don’t forget the Draper James Now & Later Sale that I shared yesterday.  Soma is having their Embraceable Event offering special values on their most popular bras and panties, Frontgate is offering up to 30% off and Free Shipping, White House Black Market’s Denim Event is happening now, Shopbop added new items to sale, Banana Republic has 50% off Wear Now Must Haves and J.Crew has 35% off with code FALLISH.  Talbots is donating 10% of their net proceeds this weekend to Dress for Success and also donating one top for every top purchased through Sunday.  I love a brand that gives back!
