by | Beauty, Reader Favorites, Style | 0 comments

From swimsuits and cover-ups to cozy sweaters and great denim from home decor and gifts to fabulous handbags and beauty products here are the top 50 reader favorite purchases for 2021.

The Cuyana System Tote and oversized alpaca sweater top the list. The sweater is a perennial favorite I have yours each year and a great style staple. This gorgeous pebbled leather tote bag is so versatile and sure to become the same.

The Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Cream with Diamond Dust, the UNSUN tinted sunscreen and of course BeautyBio is GloPro top the beauty list.

Many items that top the favorites list for the year were on my holiday gift guides. Stay tuned for permanent gift boutiques to help you choose the perfect gift year-round. The free people way home shorts and anything Aviator Nation were favorite gifts for teens.  The ABC pants, Vuori Shorts and Peter Millar Drivers were top men’s gifts.

I sharedI shared photos of many of the items below as well as a full boutique below.

Navy and Silver Knit Dress / Earrings / Margaret Bracelets / similar Stuart Weitzman Sandals

I love the shade of blue and the silver shine of this shimmery off-the shoulder dress.  It runs a bit small so I would size up.

Bell Sleeve Angora Sweater Dress / Similar Black Suede Sandals / Black Louis Vuitton Clutch / Graduated Alicia Earring

I feel like a million bucks in this dress!  You know I love a great sweater dress and this one checks all the boxes.  A great knit that is not too tight but holds it’s shape and great style.  The statement sleeve is beautiful and not overpowering.  It also fits TTS.

Softest Turtleneck / Flare Denim / Similar Shoes / Hazen Tigers Eye Bangles / Hazen Molly BraceletHazen Addison Tiger’s Eye Bracelet / Hazen Tiger’s Eye Claire Earrings

These are staples with different shoes and jackets!  This is a go-to Fall/Winter combo for me paired with my favorite Hazen Tiger’s Eye pieces.

Magenta Turtleneck Sweater / Flare Denim / Booties

Another version of my go-to on trend with a pop of color!  I love this pink and get so many compliments when I wear it!

This shacket with military detailing and gold snaps was an instant hit!  It comes in other colors, too.  Many sizes and colors are still available.

Black Long Sleeved Dress / Black Woven Sandals / Similar Givenchy Mini Bag

This is a great (almost) year-round dress!  It’s still available in all sizes!

White Bishop Sleeve Top / Dark Denim / Celine Big Bag / Similar Sandals /  Hazen Tigers Eye Bangles / Hazen Molly BraceletHazen Addison Tiger’s Eye Bracelet / Similar Cross Pendant Necklace / Similar Hermes Belt

I am all about a great white shirt for any season. This Bishop Sleeve V-neck blouse in crisp white cotton is a winner!

French Terry Dress / Similar Sandals

This is a BIG Reader Favorite!  It comes in several colors.  I’m thinking the black would be a great cozy option for dressing up for the holidays, too!

White Off the Shoulder Top / Similar Cargo Pants / Similar Sandals / Similar Dior Clutch Bag / Hazen Tigers Eye Bangles / Hazen Molly BraceletHazen Addison Tiger’s Eye Bracelet / Hazen Tiger’s Eye Claire Earrings

Another white shirt that is another staple in my wardrobe.  I’ve worn it from Punta Mita to Telluride.

This Veronica Beard beauty was a HUGE favorite!  It’s back for Resort/Early Spring in an rich ecru color!

Blue Crochet Bikini / Similar Cross / Alicia Earrings / Alicia Necklace / White Garmin Vivomove Watch

This and several other bikinis were top sellers from Spring Break through the summer.

Blue Tshirt Cover Up  / Blue Bikini / Beach Tote / Sandals / Lapis Bamboo Beach Bangles / Sunglasses

This is available in several colors as well.  It’s my favorite cover up.  So light and soft!  I’ve ordered the pink!

Lattice Pillow / Floral Pillow

These pillow covers have been a big seller every month!  They are on the pricier side but the quality is so good!

I love sharing new clean beauty finds! I just found UNSUN Tinted Sunscreen.  It is a 100% mineral sunscreen and color corrector all in one.    It comes in beige and dark tan.  I am wearing the color beige.  It offers color correction and smooths out and blends in very well.

I still get questions about this swimsuit!  I’ve linked it in several colors.  As one reader suggested, it’s the perfect suit when you aren’t ready for a one-piece but don’t want to be in a bikini!

Which of these items are in your closet now?  I’d love to know!
