Well August seems like a foggy memory by now. Ha! We’re already four days into September. But it’s not too late to look back and see what was hot at Dressed for My Day in August, 2023. These are the products purchased most often here and at my YouTube channel by the same name. Let’s see if any of these items made their way to your closet.

I don’t just share these top sellers to give you FOMO. Ha! I check these analytics so that I can see what resonates with my viewers and readers. It’s important to me that I provide content and share styles that align with a wide base of my followers. I truly try to share shoppable items in a wide range of price points and a reasonably wide range of style aesthetics. But looking through these analytics helps me to find the sweet spot for the majority of my content.
Several of the items in the August HOT at DFMD list are among my favorites, too. But there are a couple of items I’ve not even shown here at the blog or on the YouTube channel. Ha! And we have a few repeat winners, too. Let’s check them out!
The Bristol Pants run true to size for a very roomy fit. They’re marked down now and you’ll get an extra 70% off. Great 3-season pant.
I went with my smaller size in these cargo pants for a really nice fit.
I have not shown this beautiful coat on the blog or YouTube channel, nor do I own it. But I did list it among my favorites in this blog post on Talbots newest arrivals.
It is a lovely coat from the looks of it in this photo. And I do know that Talbots generally has nice ones. Let us know if you purchased on and what you think about it.
9 – High Rise Wide Leg Jeans in Vintage Dark Wash
I picked up these full length wide leg jeans recently and knew readers would love to hear about them. If you’re wanting to test the waters on the wide leg trend, but don’t want to spend too much money on the experiment, these are the jeans for you.
These jeans run true to size and also come in curvy fit, which is, in fact, what I’m wearing. They’re on sale right now for 30% off.
I’m definitely seeing more tailored blazers in the marketplace this year, but slightly oversized jackets are still very on trend. And a plaid or houndstooth blazer is always fun to style for fall. I wore this one with a graphic tee and black cropped pants here.
I’ve only shown the cognac colored perforated Italian leather belt on the blog and YouTube videos. But I’ve actually purchased the black one now, too.
Come to think of it, I did show I wore the black one in last Friday’s blog post on what I wore in London. The belt runs true to size for long length belt. As you can tell, I have mine doubled over a bit. But that’s really no problem since it is so nice and thin. I’m wearing the medium/large. The belt is 40% off today with code SHOPNOW.
I love this cheerful blue color, but I also have it in black and ivory. That’s what I wore for my travel days to and from London.
I found this top to run a little large, so I sized down to a small. It’s available for 25% off just through today.
The utility pants run true to size; I’m wearing a 10 very comfortably.
You ladies beat me to the punch on this one. I have indeed purchased the denim popover shirtdress from Talbots, but I haven’t had a chance to photograph it for a blog post or include it in a video yet.
I was about to write that the dress runs true to size when I read the reader comments on it and decided to try it on again. Reviews are mixed. I would say that it runs on the smaller size. I got the size 10 and it just fits. I often wear an 8 in Talbots dresses, but there’s no way I could have in this one. I am keeping it and will definitely wear it…probably with these booties or these flats (both marked down!) at first and then knee high boots later.
I’m pretty sure my friend Candy was wearing these ankle length travel pants in navy for our voyages to and from London. I love mine. They run true to size for a roomy fit and are perfect for travel with their zipper pockets.
The indigo are sold out, but the black travel pants are still available in limited sizes. They’re final sale (I sure hope they come out with a similar replacement). But originally at $149, you’ll get these pants for less than $40. Amazing deal.
I’m so glad that many of our readers have purchased this cotton blend polo shirtdress. And I hope you like it as much as I do. I always love the look of these casual dresses, but so often they are cut too short for me at 5’8″. Not this one! It’s the perfect length for me.
The dress is still available in navy peacoat and green dune, but sizes are going fast. It runs true to size; I’m wearing a medium comfortably.
1 – Utility Vest
I think this sporty utility vest is such a good layering piece for early fall. And if you live in a warmer climate that never really has a true fall, this vest could work nicely in your wardrobe for months.
I noticed the utility vest is still available in this blue and a dune green for half price. And they’ve added two new colors at full price.
So those were the top 12 purchased items through Dressed for My Day in August. I’d love to hear if you purchased any of these and what you thought of them. So please share.

Blessed for My Day
This week I begin working on a presentation for a large women’s night out event in eastern Ohio in a couple of weeks. I’m so excited about this presentation because it’s the first time I’ll actually speak on fashion to a live audience. Well, I did a few Zoom presentations during Covid, but this is a larger event and I’m excited about dressing my three dress forms for the audience while sharing tips with them.
I’ve had quite a ministry as a public speaker before I started this blog five and a half years ago, so speaking to large groups of women is nothing new to me. But those were all church or ministry groups and my messages were always biblical. This time I’ll be presenting a completely secular message, but I still want to share the love of God. And I want to make sure that He receives glory from everything I do and say. Will you join me in praying about this presentation? I would truly appreciate it.
If I speak with the tongues of mankind and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:1
