Well, April flew by like songbirds flocking north for the summer! With the end of each month I like to look at my analytics and see what resonated most with my readers and viewers. I’d love for you to tell me in the comments, in fact, if there were particular blog posts, videos or other content you enjoyed this past month. But today I’m going to share with you what was hot at DFMD in April, according to my affiliate link analytics.

Once again, I didn’t know what was HOT at DFMD until I pulled the above graphic from my assistant Holly’s Dropbox folder. But I’m not at all surprised to see these fun spring fashions, accessories and a great beauty product here.
Let’s start with number twelve. The Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette is the one I use almost daily right now, and I love the mixture of matte and shimmer shadows. Plus, Tarte eyeshadows all just go on so beautifully and blend very nicely without becoming muddy.
I shared the Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette in one of my recent Afternoon Coffee with Kay Instagram Lives. So be sure to check those out. I usually go live on Thursday afternoons at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, but I didn’t get to do it this past week due to travel. I’m not sure about this Thursday yet because I’m still visiting my mom, but I’ll do my best!
10. Linen Blazer
I purchased this flax colored Linen Blazer either last year or the year before. I also have the twilight blue one from last year. I LOVE wearing my linen blazers all spring and summer. Evidently a lot of my readers and viewers will be enjoying theirs this year, too.
My favorite way to wear a blazer these days is to put it over a top in the same color. So chic! And adding a pretty scarf ties it all together without interrupting that layering of color.
As much as I love my other linen blazers, I do wear my White Linen Blazer the most often. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that this White Linen Blazer is my favorite go-to piece in my summer wardrobe. Mine is from a couple of years ago. I did try this year’s White Linen Blazer from Talbots on and it may be an inch or so longer, but it’s still basically the same blazer.
Also, I’ve tried on lots of white linen blazers, and the Talbots White Linen Blazer is definitely my favorite. The review comments on the website complain that it’s thin, but that’s how I want a linen summer blazer to be. I wouldn’t say it’s thin, but it is lightweight and perfect for warmer climates.
The number 8 top seller at DFMD in April was this simple but nice-fitting Croft & Barrow V-Neck T-Shirt. I shared one in navy and white stripe and it’s only available in medium now. But the tee comes in several other nice prints and solids, too.
The Free Assembly Faux Wrap V-Neck Top was the number seven selling item here at Dressed for My Day last month. This sweet cotton blend seersucker top is from Walmart, so of course it was a great price. Unfortunately it is currently out of stock.
For the full scoop on the outfit above check out the original post HERE.
The tiered maxi skirt features an elasticized pull-on waistband with a flat front. It’s so comfortable true to size. And this silhouette is beautiful on most body types. See more about this outfit HERE.
5. Sheec Socks
While I have shared links to specific Sheec Socks, I’m grouping these as the number five best seller at DFMD for April since they were a “new to me” brand. I’m so glad that I found these socks!
As you can see in the illustrations above and below, Sheec Socks are best known for their wide variety of no-show socks. They sent me a large assortment of their socks, including the ones shown here, and I can testify to their effectiveness and comfort. They really do stay put with wear. And they truly do make many of my shoes more comfortable and wearable.
But if you need no-show socks for any shoe type – from slingbacks to sandals to pumps to sneakers, I suggest you check out the full line of Sheec Socks.
4. Calia Sandal
The Marc Fisher Calia Sandal is the number 4 top seller at DFMD in April. I find this pretty sandal to run true to size and to be very comfortable, especially for the type of shoe it is.
The Calia Sandal is still available in this pretty light natural shade that is perfect for my skin tone. But I also purchased the Calia Sandal in black to wear with black pants and crops this summer. And the Calia Sandal comes in a beautiful gold (selling fast) and a fun green.
The number 3 DFMD top seller for April is the Effortless Jersey Ballet Neck Top from Talbots.
The Effortless Jersey Ballet Neck Top is practically sold out, but Talbots has a similar short sleeve top with a square neck in that same fabric. This one comes in navy and white stripe and orange and white stripe, and I purchased the navy and white one. I can attest that it has that same silky fabrication and looks so chic and polished. It runs true to size.
I have thoroughly enjoyed wearing both my white and my black Talbots Bristol Pants this spring. And I hope many of you have, too, since they are the number two top seller here at Dressed for My Day.
And honestly, I don’t feel like any of my photos have done these pants justice. They are such a modern pant, but also comfortable and flattering for most body types. These lightweight “elevated chinos” feature a small pleat at the waist band and a little give in the back of the waist band. They hit at the ankle and have a slightly tapered leg.
I just got in my white linen Bristol pants (fully lined) and I’m already in love. If it’s possible, these linen Bristols are even more flattering and comfortable. My mom ordered the navy linen Bristols and loves them, too.
And I’m surprised…but not surprised…to see the 180° Two-Way Tank in Belleville Stripe come in as our number 1 best seller at DFMD in April. After all, tanks like these are essential for great spring and summer outfits. And since you can wear this 180° Two-Way Tank in Belleville Stripe as a very modest v-neck or scoop neck, it’s a great option.
So that’s a wrap! What fun! I love seeing what is resonating with you. I’d say my assessment of this analysis for April is that we’ve all been busy building functional, versatile and very wearable wardrobes for spring. And I also see that many of you are choosing to invest a little more where it really matters – like great shoes (nude sandals) and beautiful blazers (this blazer and this White Linen Blazer), but you’re choosing to shop more economically for the more trendy pieces that you may not wear as frequently. Bravo!

Blessed for My Day
In a time when everyone seems to be uncertain about most everything, I want you to know that there are still, in fact, certainties. Indeed, we do live in a time when it’s even risky to say such things, but I’m telling you that 2 + 2 still equals 4, that two molecules of hydrogen and one of oxygen still yields water and that God created man and woman. I’ll take flack for saying so, but someone has to.
We need to be reminded sometimes that there are indeed certainties we can cling to. Your soul is meant to be tethered to truth, not whimsy. Let’s begin each day by reminding ourselves of what we do know so that we can resist the pull into a world of uncertainties and conjecture. I know this, my Redeemer lives. And at the last, He will take His stand on the earth.
Yet as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last, He will take His stand on the earth. ~ Job 19:25
