Hello dear readers! And welcome to a rare Wednesday blog post. In the past I’ve shared My Favorites for each month along with the top sellers at DFMD. But I’ve decided to switch things up a little this year and post HOT at DFMD for each month. Honestly, this is a little easier for me. And so often your favorites are actually my favorites, too.

Truth be told, I always run out of content calendar space at the end of the month, and that’s when I like to publish these “favorites” posts. Point in case, this week we’re rolling out the spring capsule wardrobe and I didn’t want to leave that unfinished for this. But I can have one of my assistants quickly run the analytics and put together the graphic for the new HOT at DFMD posts, whereas I have to take a full day to think through my personal favorites and write up that post.
Anyhoo! That may be more than you needed or wanted to know. But sometimes changes require a little explanation. And for those of you who did enjoy the old format, I get it. I did, too. And maybe we’ll return to it later. But let’s give this a whirl. Okey dokey? Thank you. 🙂
I didn’t know what was HOT at DFMD until I pulled this graphic from my assistant Holly’s folder. But it didn’t surprise me one bit that the exact things that I’ve been crushing over…you have, too! Indeed, these are the very items I would have chosen as my February Favorites.
The floral pocket tee (shown above) along with the forest fauna graphic tee (shown below) are both so soft and fun. I love the colors these tees come in as well as the floral and fauna designs. Both tees run true to size.
The folk art graphic tees were also HOT this month at DFMD. I showed them in a graphic only. You can see more of these tees and others in this blog post. And of course you can generally have those graphics and others printed on a multitude of different color shirts.
Two cotton sweaters made the HOT list, including my white fisherman cotton sweater. I actually have purchased this cotton sweater in the cheerful summer green, too, but I accidentally shipped it to my parents. 🤦♀️ I’m anxious to get it because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the white one. It has such a nice silhouette, not too big or bunchy at all. It fits true to size.
And the pale blue soft sweatshirt sweater at J.Jill (not shown on the blog) has also been HOT at Dressed for My Day this past month. It’s been hot with me, too. I’ve been wearing it each morning over my pajamas while I have my coffee. Ha! I did size down to a small in that sweater. I think I shared that sweater in a YouTube video and LTK. And it’s in my Spring Capsule Wardrobe.
A couple of pairs of jeans also made the HOT list. And these are definitely two of my favorite recent purchases. In fact, these white slim fit boyfriend jeans may be my favorite white jeans EVER. They run a little large and I sized down to a 29 for a really nice fit. They’re a nice thick white denim, so you don’t feel exposed in them at all.
And the other pair of jeans that have been HOT, HOT, HOT in February are the Talbots relaxed fit high waist jeans with a cowboy crease down the front. Yes, that little pressed in crease (by them, not me) is actually on trend. These jeans also fit a little roomy, but I stuck with my usual size 8. I do love these jeans!
The button-up shirt runs true to size. I wear it in a medium. The fabric is really soft and such a good quality. It’s also available in a solid blue.
I’m pretty sure this chunky chain necklace has been in the top sellers at DFMD for several months now. In fact, Talbots sold out of it a while back and restocked it for a new season. Chunky chain necklaces and bracelets are very on trend right now. And wearing one is such a simple but effective way to accessorize almost any outfit.
And finally, two jackets proved to be HOT at DFMD in February. I love my new mid length trench coat. I’ve worn it several times already in real life. It fits true to size, comfortably enough to wear a sweater underneath. It’s already sold out once and is only available in a few sizes now. However, it’s also available in black. I have another black trench coat, but I highly recommend one. They’re perfect for cool weather when you’re wearing a more elevated outfit.
And then there’s this sweet gem.
I’m already imagining myself exploring the coast of Maine in this beautiful hooded London Fog active jacket. I’m not usually one for sporting logos, but I don’t mind the London Fog tape down the front or along the sleeve cuffs one bit on this one. And I love the net lining, the zipper pockets, the hood and the concealed cinch cord at the waist. Perfect jacket! And it also comes in white and pink. I would LOVE to have those, too. But I’ll hold myself back. Ha!
That’s a wrap! Thanks so much for dropping in. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing my personal Spring Wardrobe Accessories and some options for you, too.

Do you ever have moments of doubting God? Sure, you probably do. Most of us have those fleeting moments when the thought crosses our mind that, “Maybe God doesn’t really mean that…” Or “Maybe He would understand if…” Most of us have probably had times of doubting God’s faithfulness, His timing, His presence, His interest in our lives, His forgiveness or even His power. During our weakest moments we are prone to hear the enemy of our soul whisper questioning doubts into our tired and overloaded minds.
But what happens next? We all know what happened next in the Garden of Eden when this very same scenario played out. Eve listened to the serpent. She carried on a conversation with him and allowed him to cause her to act on her doubts. We don’t want to follow her example. Instead we are wise to follow the example given by Jesus in Matthew 4:1-11 where Jesus answered the enemy with brief, succinct answers straight from God’s Word. He didn’t give the sneaky snake even an inch, but extinguished his doubting lies with truth. Can you do the same?
Now the serpent was more cunning than any animal of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” ~ Genesis 3:1
