2018 has been quite a year for Sheaffer Told Me To. Thanks to you ladies and the fact that you’re so willing to share this space with your friends and family, the blog continues to grow. You recommending the blog to others is the highest compliment I can receive, and I’m incredibly grateful to all of you for your love, your loyalty, and your support. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! I know it sounds cliche, but your feedback and constant support is what makes this blog so rewarding for me.
I thought naming the TOP 10 ITEMS FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR was a fun post to do right now for several reasons: 1) As 2018 comes to a close, what better way to wrap up the year than recall our favorites? 2) I’ve never done a Top 10 list, and it was so interesting to me to look back and see what y’alls favorites were! I would have guessed 6 of them, but 4 of them really surprised me…even though all of the Top 10 items are obviously favorites of mine! 3) I know lots of you have Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket, and these items are obviously tried and true (and I would highly recommend them all).
#10 was a tie…..and in previous years, both of these items have made the Top 5 list. In fact, 1 year one of them was #1. They are still going strong several years after I first introduced them to you, although they have both dropped down to #10 this year. Can you guess what they are?
I’ll give you a hint, I wear at least 1 of them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Click HERE for #10a in a 3 pack (you can buy them individually HERE, although you really should go ahead and buy 3).
Click HERE for #10b. (I also love this one a lot and I hear that this one is awesome for smaller chested girls).
You can click HERE to see a post where I talk more about both the bra and the undies. (Scroll to almost of the bottom of the post to see all of my thoughts. You’ll see a picture of the bra and the undies together, and I share my thoughts about both of them right above the picture.)
And although this bra didn’t make the top 10 list, it should have. I mean, it’s a strapless bra that I wear when I don’t even have to wear a strapless. Yes, it’s that good.
Also, although they didn’t make the Top 10 list, these undies are new favorites for me for sure. I found them this year, and I like them even more than the above when a panty line is a concern. We’re talking NO VISIBLE PANTY LINES. AT ALL. Click HERE to get to two different posts I wrote this year about my favorite items from Soma! It’s a brand that I now love. My favorite Soma items are the no show undies, the wireless enbliss bralette, and their cool nights pajamas.
Two pairs of jeans made the Top 10 list this year, and they are both from the same maker! Any guesses?
#9 is a pair that I included in a post called 8 Fall Staples as well as a post a post entitled “Why You need a Pair of xxxxx xxxxx That You Love!”
So what do you think? Click HERE to see #9! I have received so many e-mails from readers about #9 that all say pretty much the same thing. None of y’all can believe how much these jeans stretch your wardrobe, and you all love how you can dress them up and down. Everybody says “I don’t know how I didn’t have these in my closet until now!”
We’ve got another tie y’all. These two items were neck and neck (I could hardly believe it!), so I went ahead and just assigned them both the Number 8 spot.
These items were both named after me, so I’m incredibly thankful to y’all for supporting me in this manner! Y’all are THE BEST. I really mean that.
Click HERE for #8a. Click HERE to see where I introduced it to y’all. I had such an amazing time in L.A. hanging with the other girls in the Gibson Glam Squad, getting to work with professional photographers, and being a part of such a fun collaboration.
Click HERE for #8b, an accessory named after me. Click HERE to see the post where I showed all of the colors and styled all of them. And great news, they’ve agreed to reinstate the code….so the code STONESTEAL will get you the necklace for ONLY $20 (regular price $42!)! That’s a heck of a deal, y’all! My favorite colors: turquoise, ivory, and black are the only ones that are still available.
I named #7 THE GATEWAY JEANS and claimed they make you look taller and skinnier than you already are. Do you remember? Did you get them?
Click HERE for the post where I sing their praises, give sizing info, and showed them in several different outfits. I absolutely love and adore them.
This item has been in my Top 10 since the beginning. It’s been in my Top 3 for several years, but I’m guessing that after so many years that most of y’all already have at least 1. And let’s be honest, I’m guessing that many of y’all have more than 2. #nojudgement #ihave4
First there was the original, then there was the baby, then there was the hooded.
I have 1 original, 2 baby (just got the new purple color this year and love it), and 1 hooded. I love them all for different reasons.
If you don’t have one, I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to spend Christmas money on one of the above blardigans. Like, even if you have just $100, GIFT YOURSELF A BLARDIGAN.
Yes, they’re expensive, BUT YOU WON’T REGRET IT. I wear one pretty much every day.
Click HERE to see my side by side review of the different styles if you’re having a hard time deciding which style to go with. Click HERE to see me in my new purple one.
Initially, I was super surprised to see that THESE BABIES made the Top 5.
But after I thought about it, it made sense. I pretty much wore these 80% (or more) of the days this past summer. They are so comfy, they are so flattering, and I just love them. Looking back, it seems obvious that I should have definitely named them a MUST HAVE.
If you want to see them on, you can head to pretty much any post this summer. More specifically, you can click HERE (where I styled them with a tee from Cassie’s collection) or HERE (where I styled them with lots of different outfits for July 4th). In all seriousness, you could pretty much just head to any post from like April-August, and you’ll see them.
These were Top 5 last year as well and I still wear mine ALL THE TIME. They are cozy, all sorts of comfy, and they are a revamped version of something that have been around for a long time. Click HERE to see the STMT #4 item. Click HERE to see me talk about them at length. Click HERE to see me wearing them on my girl’s trip to New York this year.
So #3 was a new item to the blog this year. It’s a pair of shoes, and the moment I saw them, I knew they were going to be a huge hit. After having them in cognac for a bit, I also purchased them in black.
They weren’t too high, they weren’t too low, they were comfy, and the style could easily be dressed up or down.
Any ideas, y’all?
Click HERE for #3!
Not only did we love how they looked and functioned, but the price was right at just under $80. In fact, they were so popular that Treasure and Bond recently released new colors, and it looks like they will be available this year too!
If you want to know more about them, head to the post where I named them a MUST HAVE! They were the only official MUST HAVE of 2018!
Click HERE to see me wearing them casually with white jeans and a denim jacket, and click HERE to see me wearing them all dressed up!
Y’all. This one shocked me.
I mean, NUMBER TWO isn’t even something that you wear.
WHAT? HOW COULD THAT BE?
I bought ONE OF THESE for my family in July during the anniversary sale, and we are now all obsessed. They make perfect gifts and come in 20 colors! And they are on sale right now! The fact that y’all were buying multiples really helped catapult it towards the top of the list. Click HERE to see where I first showed it (it’s a super cute picture of the kid) and hear what he declared about the blanket. #blasphemy
Before we get to #1, I feel like there needs to be some fanfare.
Check this out.
This is an item that I really only posted 1 day.
And it’s the NUMBER 1 item on the blog.
The item came in several colors, and it was a STUPID GOOD DEAL because of a code that I posted. And I know tons of you bought them as gifts, so the fact that you were buying several at a time definitely helped to shoot them up to #1 status. Click HERE to get to the STMT #1 item.
And you can HEAD TO THE POST to see all of the colors styled, The code TOTE2018 takes the price from $58 all the way down to $25! When I first posted the totes, they were a 3 week pre-order (which is why they were able to do such an incredible deal), but there are now just 50 left. And once they’re gone, they’re gone. However, stay tuned for some awesome totes for Spring!!!
FYI, if you are somebody who is trying to buy the necklace and the tote, you will have to place two separate orders because you can only use one code per order.
UPDATE: The Accessory Concierge girls just contacted me and let me know they just launched their NEW YEARS SALE! With the code CELEBRATE, you can shop the entire site for 40% OFF! Now, the necklace and the totes aren’t eligible for an additional 40% OFF, but the deals are already better than 40% OFF. Also, if you want to get the necklace and shop the site for 40% OFF, you will have to check out two separate times because you can’t use more than 1 code per order. Some of my favorites follow: this colorful tassel necklace (loved it this past Spring and Summer), the Sheaffer suede tassel necklace (great colors for game day necklaces), this watercolor agate necklace is gorgeous (I think I’ll snag it for myself at 40% OFF!), I’m loving so many of their bracelets right now, and they’ve got tons of fun earrings!
And now, just for fun, even though I’ve only posted Amazon finds 1 time, I thought I would count down the Top 3 Amazon items. The Amazon Haul post got more link clicks than my Black Friday post, so it was hugely popular and y’all were very interested in what I had found that I loved!
Click HERE for Amazon item #3.
Click HERE for Amazon item #2.
Click HERE for Amazon item #1.
Click HERE to get to my Amazon Haul post where I talk about all of the above items, plus 10 other items I review and recommend!
So, now I’m interested in what y’all think. Please sound off in the comments! If you have one of these items, please leave your thoughts! If you have several of these items, please tell me HOW MANY you have and/or name your items.
I would also be interested in knowing if you have a different STMT favorite from this year that didn’t make the list. If you do, please tell us what that item is in the comments.
END OF YEAR GIVEAWAY:
And here’s the fun part…each comment will be an entry into a fun End of The Year Giveaway! I’m not sure what the prizes will be just yet, but 3 commenters from today’s post will be chosen at random, and the winners (and the prizes) will be announced on next Wednesday’s post!
THANK Y’ALL FOR AN AMAZING YEAR. 2018 was AWESOME, and I’m ready to make 2019 even better! Love you, ladies!
My two favorites are the sannibel wedge and the itty bitty boot cut jeans. Both affordable too!
Heather Stanton says
It was the blanket for me! We are a cozy blanket family and everyone fussed over who gets what blanket….so I ordered 4 in all different colors so everyone has their own. I just ordered another bright cherry yellow one for my step daughter to be cozy in when she goes back to college! I’m thinking of ordering a few more after the holiday season just to replace old blankets we’ve had for years.
Shannon Hall says
I own four of these top 10 items from this list!!!
I got a Trouve sweater you recommended and I absolutely love it. I also have a pair of AG jeans that I wear regularly. Thank you for all the recommendations. Happy Holidays!
Katie T says
Such a great top 10 list!! The necklace is one of my favs that I wear all the time. I got it one of the first posts you made about it and have It in a pretty green with blue stone.
Tammy Knoll says
What a fun post for the end of the year. I want everything!!!
Kassy McIlrath says
The blardigan (all 3 of them) is still my favorite. I can wear it around the house or out and about and it is so soft and cozy.
I got my 3rd AND 4th baby blardigan for Christmas…..the navy and plum now live happily along side my black and gray ones 🙂
Sarah Thomas says
I just got the slim-profile uggs for Christmas and I love them already!
Love your BLOG and this top 10 list. So cool to see everyone’s favorites and I must admit have several off the list myself. Happy New Yesr:)
I loved the camo Moto jacket from Anthropologie that you wore so much, I bought one, using your advice about getting a medium instead of a small, and I absolutely LOVE the jacket. I’d wanted something camo for a long time and seeing you in the jacket, I knew it was what I’d been waiting for. The perfect piece. Thank you, I love your style and seeing all of your finds. You’ve helped me up my style game!
Cindy ML says
Sheaffer those bras and undies changed my life!!
Gena Justice says
I do not own the Sannibel Platform Wedge but after reading this post I’m going to order a pair. This past summer I saw many bloggers wearing the shoe and I liked how you paired it with many outfits. When I clicked on the link and saw so many positive reviews, I thought what I am waiting for!
Laura Crenshaw says
I am happy to say that out of your top 10, I took advantage of your opinion and have 5 of the 10! The super soft throw, the pendant necklace and the #1 tote were amazing surprises that my daughters loved! And me too! Thank you for being right one with your suggestions and also for choosing affordable items! I invite my friends to follow you all of the time! Happy New Year!
I have 7 of the top 10 thanks to your blog! ?. Love everything you post!
I have loved everything I’ve ordered based on your recommendations!! Thank you so much for introducing me to the Wit & Wisdom Absolution jeans! Love them!
I have two Barefoot dreams cardigans. Thanks to you? 😎
Congratulations on a great year, Sheaffer. Many blessings to you and your family!
Brenda L says
Your blog is my favorite! I am always excited to see it pop up in my email. I super enjoy your favorites and frequently purchase them… : )
Finally bought a blardigan this year after seeing you, Cassie, and Shay recommend it for so many years, and I am convinced it has changed my life! 🙂 Thank you!
Hi Sheaffer! I bought the blankets for myself and my boys (to avoid fighting HAHA) and we love them! So cuddly and warm!
I already have a couple of blardigans and I would LOVE to catch the baby blardigan on sale sometime. I love the newest color!
And I have several pairs of the Natori undies (thank you, Anniversary Sale) and LOVE THEM!
Thanks for “telling me to” and Happy New Year to you!
Robin C says
Love the Barefoot Dreams blardigans. I’ve been looking for a comfy Bralette and will definitely check out the Enbliss. Thanks!
You’ve brought so much fun into daily life. I’ve read you for years and your blog is always consistently well done. I’m so happy about your part in the Gibson line. You deserved that!
Happy New Year and I’m looking forward to following you in 2019.
kathy olson says
Also, the Lush tunic tops from Nordstrom have been a great purchase.
Julie Connelly says
I have to admit, I am really surprised at the #1 item!!!! My 2 absolute favorites are the Amie Uggs & the blardigan of course. I believe I have 4 blardigans myself & have gifted at least 2 🙂
I have been reading your blog for years and I finally caved during the anniversary sale and purchased the hooded Blardigan. Why did it take me this long to pull the trigger?! It is amazing and one of my favorite items in my closet!
Tracey Cobb says
Those throws are everything. Congratulations on an amazing year!
Thanks for the roundup. Will check them out!
Audrey W says
Wit & Wisdom jeans changed my life! Thanks for the recommendation. They woukd
Lindsay Walter says
I love the throw blanket! It’s a family favorite!
Michele Gordon says
I have all three styles of the Blardigan and for me, the hooded is my favorite. I also gifted one to my 10 year old granddaughter and she loves to snuggle in it.
The Wit & Wisdom jeans FOR SURE are one of my faves! I bought them way back when you initially suggested them and I have not been disappointed!
Michele Gordon says
I have the blanket/throw and the grandkids fight over it because it is so, so soft. We all love it.
Kasey White says
I wear my blardigan pretty much every single day! I love it!
Jenn Gray says
What a fun post! I loved looking back at these! Definitely appreciated your time on the Amazon post. I ordered those leggings for three people for Christmas. I’m one of them and I think I like them just as well as my Zella’s!
Erika Slaughter says
I LOVED this post!! New tradition started today!! And #8’s are my FAVES!!
Kristin Smith says
I loved the blanket this year, bought several at the Anniversary sale. Also bought 5 totes to give as gifts, have 2 left that I am saving for part of my teacher gifts for next year!
Michele Gordon says
I have two of the totes (one wine and one cognac) and I carry them all the time. They are the perfect size for me. The code makes them such a great value. These were definitely number 1 for me.
Amanda H says
The amazon leggings are the best!
Michele Gordon says
I have the UGG boots and absolutely love the slim profile. Was never a fan of UGGs because they looked so bulky. Not these!! They are now a favorite boot in my growing collection.
Michele Gordon says
I am 60 years old and always had difficulty finding jeans I liked. Thanks to your reviews, I now own several pairs of the Wit & Wisdom…the itty bitty bootcut and the skinny are both flattering and fit well.
Dana Douthit says
Loved the amazon haul! And the the throw
Let’s see.. I have the Natori undies, two blardigans (the original and the baby), the jean shorts, and the slim fit UGGs. I buy pretty much everything online based on somebody’s advice but I have to say your items are my most worn/best purchases. I definitely splurged on a couple of those, but I wear them ALL THE TIME and don’t regret it for a second. Thank you for all you do!!
Katie Jansen says
Love the list!! I currently don’t own any of the items but I just filled my Nordstrom cart:)
I love reading your blog. I have the Wit & Wisdom jeans and blanket that I ordered this year. I’m also waiting for the blardigan in the new purple color to go on sale. I love that color.
maureen c waugerman says
I really like your Amazon Haul posts. It just gives me different options plus prime free shipping.
Love love love the blardigans. You are so right – I wear one nearly every day!
Gentry Adams says
I couldn’t live without my Wit and Wisdom Jeans- life changing! Can’t wait to see what fun finds the new year brings!
I love that the blanket made it into the top 10! Great price, great gift for any age and any occasion!
Rachel Martin says
I love the idea of this post! I’m always buying the stuff that is rated so high, and I spent the extra on myself for a blardigan! It’s so dreamy!
Betty Jo R says
I ended up ordering two of the blankets to give to friends and now I’m wishing I had ordered one for myself!
Rachel LaPointe says
I have the black wit & wisdom jeans, the sims stone necklace (which I wore a ton all summer long because I bought the hot pink), I have 3 blardigans (although I didn’t purchase any this year), and last year I bought 3 of those blankets for people for Christmas…. when I started reading this post I thought I might have one of the things!
Thanks to you, my college daughter now raids my closest because I now have cool clothes and shoes! On the top 10 list, I love my blardigan!
I have a Sims Stone Necklace and LOVE it! 🙂 Thanks for recommending it!
I’m pretty sure I have 8 out of the top 10 items! And love every one of them…. Because #scheaffertoldmeto!!!!!
I’m surprised Colleen Rothchild’s skincare products didn’t make the list! You turned me on to her products and my skin can’t thank you enough!
Amber LaRussa says
What a great year! My favorites were the “blardigan”-I am in love with mine! I had to have one of those blankets and oh how I love it! and last, the tote! I bought one for myself and one for my girlfriend! Such a great gift!
Wore those shorts all summer!!! Need a blanket now!
Kristin Justus says
I love the baby blardigan and the UGG boots! Pretty much will be wearing them everyday this weekend because of the cold!
Love all of these! I own 4 and can’t choose a favorite 🙂
Love this review. The blardigan is my all time favorite item. My favorite post this year was definitely the Amazon haul. I love the 100% cotton mock turtleneck sweater!
Ugg boots! I was desperate for a new pair and got the ones you recommend. Also, now love Wit and Wisdom jeans.
I have 8 out of 10 of these items!! You are clearly the best, Sheaffer 🙂
Happy New Year!
Tara Fitzpatrick says
I found your blog this year and already have 7 of the 10+ things (plus many more)! Looking forward to some spring items since I live in Florida and it’s already 80 here. Congrats on a great 2018 and a successful 2019!
I love the throw! I ordered my 5 year old one for Christmas so I could have mine back!
I have 7 of these top 10 items! Love your recommendations and looking forward to more shopping in 2019!!
I need some new jeans, so definitely going to get a pair or two!!
Happy New Year!
April Parrish says
My favorites are without a doubt the blardigans and the wedge sandals. I love both! I have several on your top 10 list, but those 2 rank at the very top for me!?
I have several of your recos… the blardigan which I got during a sale! I also don’t wear any other bras than the natori now… and even got my mom on board .. also have always been able to pick one up during a sale! Ok I LOVE my Zella live in leggings and are surprised they aren’t still a top ten! Great recommendation on those! Love your blog ❤️
Jennifer Kogod says
The Wit & Wisdom jeans are fabulous! Also, I agree about the strapless bra. Perfect to wear! So comfortable!
kate holman says
I love the wit & wisdom jeans……just ordered a new pair in the nordstrom sale yesterday
Great list! I love No 2! It’s perfect year ’round!!
Christine R. says
I gifted the faux suede tote – and love it so much I’m ordering myself one!!
niki mb says
Love the shorts and uggs!!
Great list to have all these in one place. I love my sims stone necklace, blardigans (yes plural) and wit and wisdom jeans. Thanks for all the great finds!
Amanda Sullivan says
Love this post!!! Keep em coming in ’19!
Alison Althouse says
I really loved flipping through your top posts from this year… as a new subscriber, it’s fun to see what things won out from the entire year! Your comments and suggestions are also terrific – just wish you’d include photos with each item so my phone didn’t jump around from point to point when I’m looking at things to buy #iwanteverything
ALL the Wit and Wisdom jeans, for sure, and I also introduced my sisters to them. Now we need to do a wardrobe consult when we are going out or we end up looking like triplets. I will also admit that I bought a DOZEN of the Kennebunk throws and gave one to each household at our annual Christmas party. Thanks for all the recommendations.
Love the Amazon items – keep ’em coming! Got the tortoise shell earrings for Christmas (under $10?!) and love them!!
Karen Stoltenberg says
What a great list! I have the undies, the Wit and Wisdim black jeans, the white and black Sheaffer tops, the Ugg wedge boots, the Treasure and Bond wedges, two Blardigans, (plus multiple bought for gifts), and 3 blankets bought for gifts. All because you told me to! Seriously, great recommendations! ?
Maggie B says
Your blog is my favorite to read! I have so many of the things you’ve recommended. From this list I have the necklace, undies, Uggs, jeans (and the skinny version), leggings from Amazon, and just ordered a blanket. I also have several sweaters, must have denim jackets, maxi dress, boots, and more. Here’s to a wonderful New Year for you!
Jennifer Davis says
I purchased 8 out of your top 10! I might have a problem!
Shelly Pritchard says
I own 3 of your top 10! I love the blardagain! I have 4?.
I have 7 of the 10! Does it count for more that I have multiple blardigans and just bought 8 blankets as family Christmas presents? I guess when Sheaffer tells me to, I do!
Jen Haney says
I love my blardigan!! And I’m seriously thinking about getting the throw blanket. It looks so soft!!
Bought the Wit & Wisdom jeans and love the fit!
Stephanie S says
Loved the post!! I have 4 of the top 10 and just filled my cart with a few others. The Blardigan would make the top of my list! I have all three styles of the Blardigan and gave several as Christmas gifts this year.
Thanks for the great ideas!
Michelle Brasil says
Yes, I certainly bought more blankets in the anniversary sale! Other favorites this year were the Natori undies, the camo jacket from Nordstrom, and your newest must have denim jacket!
Savannah Dove says
The Blardigan will forever be my favorite item!!! My mom, grandma and aunt all got one for Christmas this year ❤️
Holly Coyle says
Blardigans are my favorite! I own three of them & have given several as gifts over the years!
Love love love my blardigan!!
I have a blardigan and skim wedge uggs from your recommendations! Congrats on a successful year.
Liane R says
I bought the Accessory Concierge tote and then got the tote insert from the Amazon Haul. I loved the tote so much I had to order in another color. Now I’m revisiting the sweaters in the Amazon haul 🙂
Chrissy Bryant says
Hands down Wit & Wisdom jeans have changes my life!!!!?
Suzanne D says
I just loaded my Nordstrom cart with most of the things on the post. I can’t wait to use my Christmas cash! I can’t remember exactly how I found your Instagram account— but I LOVE your posts! Your style is very similar to mine so it makes shopping easy ?
Kris Dillard says
I love all of these but the blardigan is still my favorite! I have actually stopped someone wearing one and said “Don’t you love the blardigan!?” Hahaha!
I have both of #2 and 3 of the #5 and about to order the #2… thanks for a great year of suggestions!
Love the AG jeans you’ve shown, and didn’t check out the bags when you first posted, but will now.
I wore the Sheaffer top to a holiday party and received lots of compliments!!
Lacey Salmon says
I’ve been a follower for many years & I have most of your top 10! I love the wit and wisdom jeans and my new tote at the moment the most!
Ashley Peacock says
Thanks to you, I have all 10 of your top 10 because #youtoldmeto. And they’re all my favorite things too! I will say I prefer the Soma undies over the Bliss ones. I love and have gifted the Sims Stone necklace so many times throughout the year and this Christmas. Thank you for all the tried and true recommendations!
ASHLEY! ALL 10!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!! Thank you so much for trusting me!!!!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I own 4 of these 10. Wit & Wisdom jeans, necklace, tote and the blanket. Thanks for always sharing great things! Happy New Year to you and your family!
Becky Huddleston says
Your recommendations are always spot on! My seven-year old son loves the blardigan too!!
Is it bad that I have over half of your top 10? The amazon leggings are on order now, can’t wait to get them!
Beth Kaiser says
I have the following:
I always try whatever you suggest, and I did try to like the others, but being a different size than small, sometimes it just doesn’t work. 🙂
Eileen P says
I now own too many (is that even possible) pairs of Wit and Wisdom jeans. They are the prefect stretch for my curvy bottom, and the petites are perfect for my short frame (no hemming!!). And I, my sister, and my mom (as of this Christmas) all have blardigans now.
Great top 10!!!!! I got 2 blardigans and the Uggs thanks to your recommendations!!!! Love them! I definitely need to the rest! Especially the tote, blanket and necklace!
OMGosh.. I can’t beleive I forgot…in addition to my two new blardigans, I own a Sims necklace and two pairs of the slim Uggs! LOL
Beth Kaiser says
I have 10b, 9, 8b, 6, 4, 3, 2 and I just ordered 1.
I always try what you recommend, but sometimes it just doesn’t work because I’m not size small. 🙂
Keep the suggestions coming. Maybe feature a friend who wears size large wearing the clothes too!
This is an amazing list! I have the majority of these items and I just threw the Shaeffer top in my cart to buy today. Thank you for having a great blog as a resource for gifts and outfit ideas!!
Alexis deZayas says
I bought 2 Sims necklaces for me and 2 for gifts (both were well received!), own 10 blardigan/blardigan products (not an exaggeration) and love that blanket!! What a fun year!
Addie LaBonte says
Congratulations on a fantastic year, Sheaffer!!! I just love reading your blog!
My favorites were those wedges and I’m thinking I need those Uggs! Happy New Year!
Jan Fisher says
Hands down the wit and wisdom itty bitty bootcut jeans! LOVE them so much. I also have the skinny jeans, and a blardigan (original!). I have to give those soma panties a try! I switched to Hanky Panky years ago when those were your choice….I have to keep up!
Thanks for all the work you do throughout the year to keep us looking and feeling our best!
Happy New Year Sheaffer!
What a great recap! Having seen the undies make multiple top lists this year, they’re in my cart now!
Dana Fulcher says
I’ve got both of your Wit and Wisdom jeans from the Top 10, all three colors of the Sims Stone necklaces…I nearly got the tote-might take this second chance today…Happy New Year and thanks for all of the enabling throughout the year!
The blardigan and blanket are favs for sure! I have multiples in both! Thank you for the suggestions!
Kris K. says
Love my Blardigans!
Diana Camden says
I’m in love with the lace top. Would be perfect for date night or just a holiday party. Red is my favorite. Happy New year! Love the fashions on your blog.
Ragan Gallagher says
Love your Top 10 list! I have the wit and wisdom jeans, strapless bra and necklace. I am finally taking your advice and investing in a blardigan!! I can always count on your recommendations!! Thanks for all the tips, ideas and codes. I’ve been following for years and love your style!!
Kauti Nicholls says
I bought two blardigans for myself this year…. And I love the wit and wisdom jeans! I need them in Black. I also want to try out the denim shorts this summer. Thank you for all your recommendations!!!?
Great list! I swear by the jeans and the blardigans for sure! I think all my favorites made the Top 10-yay!
Katie Dambach says
What a great top 10! I’ve bought so many of these for myself and for gifts because YOU told me to!
I love the Top 10- such a fun post!! I have and love several on the list, but the blarigan may be my #1 for ever. I am wearing my 3rd (navy baby) and have been trying to justify buying a 4th in black!
Happy New Year to you and your family!

I bought the Sims stone necklace, boot cut jeans, low profile Uggs and the earrings from the Amazon post. LOVE all of them!
Other purchases in the past couple of months that I LOVE have been the Gorjana earrings, the long (adjustable) arrow necklace by Madewell in two tone, the choker station necklace from Nordstrom, the $14.95 (on sale) plaid poncho from Nordstrom, Rhett earrings from astella & Dot, and the blush poncho from Stella & Dot! I’m probably leaving out a couple of things!
LOVE THRM ALL!
Thanks Sheaffer for amazing choices and honest insight!
Happy New Year!
Kellyann Rohr says
I do love the blanket and ordered two. Have a wonderful New Year! How exciting was 2018 for you? A necklace and a blouse named after you! Congratulations, you are one hard working blogger and you deserve every ounce of success!!!
Nancy A says
Happy New Year, Sheaffer! I love the top 10 and have gifted so many of your suggestions. My favorite is still the blardigan!
Whitney Fuller says
I have the blardigan and blanket. I guess it is all about cozy for me.
I own all of these except #10 and #5 (although I have contemplated #5, the denim shorts, a bazillion times….I was hoping to catch them on sale but never did so i’ll probably grab them this summer) I did not have #1 either but decided to order that today! Thanks for all of your style tips, i’m clearly a huge fan!
Amy pool says
You got me hooked on the WW jeans. Of course my favorite is the Sheaffer top. Love love all your post.
I’m pretty new to STMT, but I’m definitely interested in the W&W jeans. Thank you!
Becky Tompkins says
Hello Vanessa! I’m pretty new as well but I’m hooked already! Look back up at my post to see what all I’ve purchased in just a few months! Go ahead and try the jeans. I think you’ll love them. I’ve found that I can trust Sheaffer’s opinion. Happy New Year!
Sheaffer – thanks so much for helping style us!! Thanks for all you do for us. Looking forward to your styling expertise in 2019! ?
Tracy Abraham says
I have the bras, the Uggs and the blardigan sweaters. I have 2 of them, I might have to try the jeans. I have a wit and wisdom pair already that I love from your recommendation. Love your picks. Keep ‘em coming.
#1 is shocking! I follow you for the clothes recommendations, but I have to admit the blanket is my favorite find this year!
Jessica R Tribbett says
I have many but the original and baby blardigans are definitely up there. I also love the Trouve sweater!
Betsy Husen says
I have 2 barefoot dream cardigans thanks to you! Have you tried their socks? They are heavenly! They were my go to stocking stuffers this year ?
I bought two of the plush throws for Christmas presents and one for myself too. Love it!!
The only item listed that I have is the blardigan but I have two! The original and the baby.
I also love the BP cozy v-neck sweater (I have two) and Zella live-in leggings (I may have just purchased my third pair). Thanks for all the recommendations!
Loved this post!! I definitely need the jean shorts! I love the blanket, blardigan, bra, and so many more of your items. You are so awesome and fun to follow!!
Erin Young says
I just love that the same items keep pooping up – that means they really are that great!!!
I’ve been following your blog for years now! So happy for your success! My favorites are the necklace (in white) and the jeans. : )
The Wit and Wisdom Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans will forever be my faves. Not sure what I will do if they ever stop making them, ha!!
This was a fun post! Of course I’m still in love The Must Have Denim jacket, I have it in two colors! I still adore the Hue leggings and Lush roll-tab sleeve tunics to go with them. I have 5 of the tunics lol! I call it my fall/winter work uniform! Thank you for putting in all the hard work finding the best pieces for us. Happy 2019!
Fun post!! My favorite this year was definitely the blanket. Purchased for our home in a beautiful dark green color + 4 gifts for family members when they were on sale for Black Friday and it is sooooo cozy!!
Bummed that I didn’t get one of those totes when you first posted because now they are sold out.
I wanted to love the jeans, but they are too short for us tall girls. Hopefully W&W will figure out that they need tall sizes as well.
Lauren Green says
I decided to be a Nordstrom card holder after reading your blog so much! Best decision ever. I am a stay at home mom with two under the age of three and online shopping with your suggestions has been the best thing ever! The blardigan may be the best clothing item for a new mom who is nursing! Thanks for all of your help!
Amber doney says
I actually have several of these items that I have purchased over the years. I have no complaints on any of them. However- the one that is my favorite is the denim cut off shorts. They fit well, they are cute, they don’t make me look like I’m trying to be 25 but they don’t look like grandma shorts 🙂
Happy new year!
I love this recap! I tell my husband (and all my girlfriends) that ALL my favorite cozy things, I learned about from your blog! I now have 2 blardigans, the comfy blanket (and gifted no less than 5 at Christmas!), just got the slim profile Uggs, the Wacoal strapless (which I agree should have made the list, along with all the Soma items!). In addition to owning those items myself, I’ve gifted just about all of them! 2 items I was surprised to see didn’t make the cut: the glitter studs and the gold circle necklace (hello…$12!!!). Thanks for taking the time to do what you do, so people like me can experience some amazing staple pieces at great prices!
Own and love the blanket, blardigans, and the necklaces. I bought and returned the wit and wisdom jeans. I think I’m the only person whom the don’t flatter! Hoping you’ll do more Amazon hauls.
I need a second job to support my STMT habit. LOL I love the blardigan. I have 4. Your blog is the best! Congrats on a great year.
Hi! I have 10b, 9, 6- original, 4 and 1. I just ordered the must have denim jacket and it’s on it’s way!
I love all your recommendations!
I also LOVE the Holt necklace I ordered. I get lots of comments on it!
Sarah K says
Andrea Cline says
My favorite is #9! I love the jeans! They are a great fit. #4 is a close second….. I love my UGGs!
Jennifer Tuten says
I definitely purchased my first blardigan because of you and now am the proud owner of several in the original style and one each of the hooded and baby versions! Happy new year! Xoxo
Juli McGuire says
I love the treasure and bond sandals! I have them in two colors. I’m so glad they are back this year!!!
Ashley Lynn says
This is where it becomes embarrassing!
I have #9 (3 pairs of jeans), #8 top, #7 jeans (bought and returned, I’m 5’10 and too tall!), #6 (4!!! Bought two for mom, two for me), and #3 (Gray pair) and bought 1 pair for a friend. That’s 10 items. LOL Your recommendations over the years have been stellar, Sheaffer! Thank you so much for your taste, and dedication to this blog!
Absolutely love all your posts! I purchase many things that I see on your blog! Now my coworkers, when I have something on that they like they automatically reply, “Let me guess, Sheaffer told you to.” Congratulations on all your success! The blanket, the blardigans, great finds for everyone!
The necklaces. I have several!!
I have given 2 blardigans for gifts for new mothers and received my first one for Christmas, so far I love it! Also love the wit & wisdom jeans. I will be ordering the Platform Wedge Sandal when comes back in stock in black in my size. Hopefully it will be restocked for spring. Thanks for your blog and all the work you do. Happy New Year!
I bought three of the Kennebunk throws…originally one for me and two for gifts, but ended up keeping two and gifting one. I just love them! Super soft and warm, without being too heavy. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas throughout the year (and my daughter-in-law thanks you for the much improved birthday and Christmas gifts!) Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family!
Susan Moore says
I love your blog and read every post! I’m always telling others about it as well! I have the Natori undies, the Treasure and Bond sandals, and I just ordered the Barefoot Dreams blardigan and the Kennebunk throw! I also ordered some Nordstrom bath towels which are super soft! I have many other items you have recommended over the last several years! I wore my Sheaffer top several times in cranberry this holiday season and received many compliments! — Thank you! Susan
Susan Stancliff says
Love your list Sheaffer! I have bought several items. I am trying to buy the necklace from Accessory Concierge but they are not honoring the stealstone discount. I have tried several ways and it says it is not valid. Any ideas:
I’ve texted them and hope it will be fixed within the hour! So sorry for the error, Susan! xoxo
Mallory Bakker says
Chuckled a little when I realized how many items off this list I bought! The boyfriend shorts, the tote, the blardigan, the black jeans, and the amazon leggings. Love love them all!! 🙂
Stacey Telford says
My favorite is still the denim jacket you posted years ago. I still wear mine several times a week!
Christine Conklin Russo says
Loved this post! Reminded me of some of my faves…and one that I’m now buying!
Debra Hurley says
I’ve been reading your blog for years, and love it for so many reasons. I have purchased so many of your recommendations. You have become my “personal shopper”. Thank you!! I have three favorites from this year’s top ten. My #1 are the Wit and Wisdom jeans in black and although I bought them last year, and I’ve gained a few pounds, they still fit great, and they haven’t faded! Second, are my slim fit Uggs. They are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn! I wore them all over Seattle earlier this month in the rain. Love that they’re water resistant! I also bought the Ugg slippers for Christmas gifts and they were a huge hit! Third is my Sims “Holt” necklace. I ordered this just before our city got hit by Hurricane Michael. Because our town was so ravaged, we weren’t getting any mail, and deliveries were being sent back to the sender. My necklace showed up several weeks later, just in time for a trip that I had planned to wear it on. Whew! I love it, the tiger eye beads are beautiful, and I’m so happy it supported a good cause! Lastly, but certainly not least, an “honorable mention” goes to the “should have made the list” strapless bra. I bought it to wear for my sons wedding this summer, and I did not have to adjust it all! Love, love, love it! I know this was lengthy, but, I just wanted to share why I love your recommendations. Just a side note, did you know that if you search “blardigan” on the Norsdtom website that it’ll takes you to the Barefoot Dreams cardigan? How cool is that? I have purchased the “blardigan” for gifts, I really need to “bite the bullet” and get one for myself one day. Thank you again Sheaffer, I’m so happy for you and the success of your blog, and you can be sure that I’ll continue to be one of your biggest fans! Happy New Year!
Debra! Thank you so much for being a loyal follower and for taking the time to leave a comment!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Amy Childs says
Just got the Ugg boots for Christmas!
Rachel G says
Are we just loyal readers….or are we becoming stalkers/mini-me Sheaffers?! I realized I have 7 out of the 10 items – some in multiples (hello, blardigan- my autocorrect even recognizes the word blardigan. Haha!) Thank you for this fun post! The voice and tone of your blog is upbeat, fun and relatable. That’s what makes it a rare gem. Clearly we all like the way you “tell us to.” Thanks for a great 2018. Happy New Year, Sheaffer!
Thank you so much for the sweet words, Rachel!!!!!! xoxo
Jennifer Stillwell says
I own a majority of these, because you told me to… I also started using the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm and I’m in love! i hope you have a great 2019!
Kristen Walters says
Unfortunately I’m a momma of 4 kiddos and don’t get the chance to buy myself stuff/ splurge. However I LOVE reading your blog. If I were to splurge the blardigan would definitely be one item!!!!
Holly Sheridan says
I own 7 of the top 10 items(& probably dupes of the remaining 3?)! Love them!
Leslie S says
My husband was skeptical we needed “another” blanket, but has practically claimed it for himself! It is sooooo soft.
Emily Collins says
I got the blanket for everyone this year for Christmas! It’s sooooo cozy! I also own most items on this list thanks to your recommendations! Happy New Year!!!
The Wit & Wisdom jeans are my new favorite – oh my word. SO in love.
Kristen Walters says
I think your LV bag should be on the list EVERY year!!! I absolutely LOVE your LV bag and have wanted one FOREVER!!! It seems so versatile, goes with everything and who doesn’t love an awesome bag???!!! I get giddy when I get a new bag- lol!!! I love them!!!
Marci Barnhart says
I have 10B, 9, 8B, 7, 6, 5 and 4. What can I say…I love them all. By far my favorite bra EVER and the Witt and Wisdom jeans just plain rock! Always get compliments on them. Look forward to your selections…great advice and reading them images my day! Looking forward to see what 2019 brings…Happy New Year Sheaffer!
Nancy Granger says
Love all the colors that the blanket comes in! Who doesn’t like a cozy blanket?
I have several of your top 10 items. The blanket, undies, bra, Jean’s, blardigan, and I just added the sandals to my cart ; )
Kelsey Brandsted says
blardigan ans Jean shorts!! Love it all 🙂
Great post—as usual! ? Love the baby blardigan!!! Am also on watch for the restocking of the Amazon sweater—so great! Would love to have a new black tote and so sad that the one listed is sold out. Let that be a lesson to me! Thanks for sharing your finds!!!
I have 3 of the 10!
Kristen Walters says
I soooo want to try the Gateway jeans!!! I NEED a good pair of jeans that fit me! I have a hard time finding jeans that aren’t too long/ too short and don’t gap!
Terri P says
Love the top 10!! Your suggestion on #9 the Wit & Wisdom jeans going to order today!! I m definitely addicted to your wonderful insightful blog! Bless you & your family in the New Year!!
Meredith Russell says
I have the necklace, 2 totes a blardigan and I plan on buying the black jeans. Thanks for all you do, I love your blog!
SArah Rose says
The T&B wedges were worn ALL SUMMER LONG and now i’m loving the Caslon peplum tee this fall/winter!
Hi Sheaffer! I have the bra and panties (10) the absolution skinny jeans (9, loveeeeee), the blardigan (6, a few) and the boyfriend shorts (5). All of these purchased with your reliable recommendations!
I love wit and wisdom jeans! Thanks for helping with those on a budget with your posts.
Alicia Geiger Baker says
Hi Sheaffer! I have purchased two of the super soft and cozy blankets that you described. One is in my living room where it gets lots of use and one was gifted to my friend for her chemo bag. She is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer and so a group of us got together and got her the blanket to keep her warm and cozy during her treatments. We (her friends) feel so helpless so we make her family food and we got her the blanket. Thanks to your recommendation, she is a teeny bit more comfortable during the fight of her life.
Sounds like she has a great group of friend, Alicia! I know how hard it is to watch a friend go through something like that. I’m so very sorry. xoxo
I have 3 pairs of the W&W Itty Bitty boot jeans. I love how these fit. I even snagged the black ones for last minute Christmas outfit this year. I love the list. I think I have 7 of the 10 items. My other favorites on this list are the T&B wedges. I need the new pink suede color! Your blog is awesome!
I have 3 blardigans (wearing one right now!) and I’ve gifted my MIL 3 blardigans. They are definitely a favorite!!
Laura Stevenson says
Holy cow…I have six of these! Thanks for all the tips 🙂 I apparently value your opinion ???.
Thanks from one Texas gal to another!
I have and love several off your list! The bra, blanket, blardigan(s), jeans and slimline Uggs… I own some must haves too…denim jacket is amazing! The Free People Cowl is so cozy! Thanks for all the recommendations. I love your blog.
Love my Wit and Wisdom jeans! I now own 3 pairs!
Couldn’t live without my blardigans and Uggs but honestly have worn the jean jacket so much I just purchased 2 other colors. Bras and necklaces are also favorites. Didn’t realize how many things I own and love are because Sheaffer recommended them! Lol
Love the tote!
Susan S. says
I have gifted the Sims stone necklace several times. Everyone loves it!!
I love the tote!! I use it everyday and bought a couple for presents! They loved it!
All the things! I love all the things! My personal favorites are the Wit & Wisdom jeans and the Sims Stone necklace, which was a HUGE hit at Christmas with my daughter and soon-to-be daughter-in-law. Keep up the fun! I can’t wait to see what you show us in 2019.
I am a newer reader to STMT, so I don’t have anything on this list yet, but I loved the Work Wear post and ordered multiple things. Looking forward to trying some of the bottoms from this post in 2019.
This year I got the undies and the blanket. Love them both! You’ve yet to steer me wrong, thank you!!
I purchased the throw blankets during the Anniversary sale as Christmas gifts and they were a HUGE hit with everyone. Even though they’re not in the top 10, the Zella workout recommendations have been my favorite; not just for working out but lounging too! My absolute favorite has been the Kut from the Kloth denim jacket. It has lasted hundreds of wears over the years and still looks new.
Thank you for the work you put in!
I have 2 blardigans (purchased 2 others as gifts) and purchased 3 of the throws. Clearly I have a need for extreme comfort =) Love the blardigans so much – I was recently quite sick after dental surgery and the entire time, all I wore was my blardigan, a cami & joggers. Got me through. We have used the throws a lot as well – they are beautiful, wash well and so so soft!
Brittany Lancaster says
Love! Love! Love the jeans. I get a black pair and a denim pair at the beginning of each school year and wear them like crazy. I really need to replace both as we speak because I have worn them so much. Just waiting for them to go back on sale!
Kimberly P. says
I love the Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans and the Amie Uggs! I held off on buying Uggs until they came out with the sleeker ones! Thanks for sharing these!
Amanda Davis says
Your Amazon #3 arrived yesterday and your Amazon #1 is arriving today! I’m starring out the window now waiting for UPS, can’t wait!
Kelsey Gillaspy says
I have the blardigan and the blanket and love them both!!
Amanda D says
Your Amazon #3 arrived yesterday and your Amazon #1 arrived today! I can’t wait!
Diana Smith says
I got four of your #1 totes for Christmas presents this year, and they were a big hit! I also bought your Sheaffer top in (gulp) ALL THREE colors. Loved the style in case that wasn’t obvious. My daughter has asked for one now that it is on sale, too!
We have 4 blankets at our house (1 for each of us) and my mom and sister each have one. They are definitely a favorite for us!
I have 8!!! of your top ten items. Love them all!!!! Have also gifted four of your items! Think your Gorjana hoops and your must have denim jacket are also wonderful! I’m a fan!
Have two of the Baby Blardigans and love them.
Jennifer w says
I have basically everything on your list and I agree with all of your favorites.
I have the blanket and I just absolutely love it! I have to fight my kids for it!!
Megan Plecker says
Love the blardigan and necklaces…and in general I love everything you post about as I know it’s something you truly back and support! I have been following your blog for years…keep up the great work!
I love the strapless bra! It is the best one I have ever worn! I recommend it to all my friends who are looking for one.
Gail Wilson says
I love seeing what everyone’s favorites were and if they matched up with mine!
I don’t doubt for a minute that the AC tote was # 1 – I bought FIVE!! One I use daily and two I gave as gifts; the others are on reserve for when I need a new springtime bag! I gave one to my sister on her B-day and she just about flipped! She proceeded to dump all the stuff from her swanky Brahmin bag into her new red tote. Both her and my Mom were ooh-ing and aah-ing over the color and quality!! This bag is the steal of the century!! Accessory Concierge should call this the Goldilocks Bag because the size is JUST right!!
Happy New Year – We can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2019!!! 🙂
I LOVE #1 the Tote! I got three and kept one for myself. We all love them 🙂 Thanks for recapping the top 10!
I bought two blardigans the year…one for and one for my mom. Now I think I’ll get the shoes.
Julie Thrapp says
1 pair of Wit and Wisdom Jeans so far! and 7 throws, make that 8, I bought 1 for my sister. They are so soft and wash well, not pilling or fading.
We love soft throws and the #2 item is no exception. I still wear my “must have” denim jacket (I have 2) the most out of all the items I have purchased per your suggestions. Thanks for doing all the work for me – it makes shopping so much faster and easier!!!
Love recaps like this and it’s so interesting to see what readers like. Thanks for putting it together and Happy New Year!
Almost all my jeans are from Wit and Wisdom thanks to you!!
Cathy L Ellis says
Got my first blardigan this year and loved it so much I got my mama one for Christmas! 🙂
Kristen Madson says
What an awesome year. The blardigan is by far my favorite. I have 2 and then I gifted my mom and mother in law each one and I adore them so!
Elizabeth Lind says
Love your blog but not my Nordstrom credit card.
I have 4 out of the top 10: natori bra, itty bitty bootcut jeans, the sims stone necklace in 2 colors, and the uggs! In years past I’ve also bought the must have tunic, the Sam Edelman flats ( I now own in 3 colors) and the hue leggings. I recommend your blog to people all the time. How else would I know what to buy?! ?
I gave two blankets as wedding gifts this fall and both couples love them! I have the turquoise necklace and sent my sister the black one for Christmas. May have to try those jeans next!
Liane R says
Another favorite that I bought was the jacket from Macy’s which you had in green. I bought it in black and love it!
I oredered three of the blankets for gifts this year and a blardigan for myself ? Happy New Year Sheaffer! I can’t wait to see what we will all be wearing in 2019 ?
I love my baby blardigan from a few years ago. Really want the new color too. I agree with the top ten. My 2019 goal is to try the jeans.
I love the blardigans, Bliss undies, Sheaffer stone necklace. Finally bought the Kut from the Kloth jean jacket this year and love it too!
Thanks for sharing your recommendations with us!
Wow. I can’t believe I have bought so many of these items. 4 from your top ten list (uggs, blardigan, sims stone necklace and blanket) and one from the amazon list (earrings). Ordered like 10 of the sims stone necklace and blankets for gifts. They have been so great to have on hand to give away! I love these uggs. Bought in the brown but want the black too! Also hoping those wit and wisdom jeans go on sale. I have other pairs I love and would love the black! I also love my articles of society jeans recommended by you!
Farryn Bussa says
I have read your blog from the beginning! I love it !
I received the slim uggs for the birthday and love them ! I have bought several pieces that you’ve recommended over the years! Your blog is my go to before I shop online or order gifts !! Thanks so much Sheaffer !
Skylar McCormick says
Itty bitty bootcut! And the wrinkle spray!
I love everything on this list! I want it all! I have the Ugg slim profile boots and love them! Happy New Year!
Leah Crouse says
I love this post Sheaffer! I have the baby and the original blardigan. I get compliments every time I wear the black wit and wisdom jeans, AND I gifted teachers and friends with the tote this year! Thank you for your fun posts and great suggestions!??
Karlie B says
I can’t wait to start shopping again once this baby is out! All great picks!
Trish Beverlin says
Thanks for a fabulous 2018! I gifted my mom and sisters blardigans (baby) last year and this year I did the blanket (along with the amazing barefoot dreams fuzzy socks!)! You make my Christmas shopping so easy! I should note that I have 3 blardigans myself (eek!) and just can’t get enough of them! Thanks so much for all you do!
Sarah B says
What a great post! I have the Natori and Soma undies, both pairs of jeans, two blardigans, a necklace, and I gave the throws as Christmas gifts this year. Thanks for all of your recommendations. I can’t wait to see what’s to come!
Dawn Engle says
What a great round up! I own 5 items on this list (and have gifted some too!!!!)!!! All amazing! Looking forward to what 2019 brings from Sheaffer Told Me To!!
Love my Sannibel wedges!
I’m a recent follower so I’m excited to try some of these items! The only thing I have so far are the leggings. I love them and I bought my sister a pair as well and she loves them too!
Kelsie Tryon says
Love all of your choices! I got my mother in law the kennebunk throw for Christmas – now I want one for myself! I got an Amazon gift card for Christmas and I plan to order the leggings!
Kari Brown says
Great list! You have officially converted me to a Nordy gal among other things over the past 3 years. I really enjoy your blog and the weekly emails. Have a wonderful 2019!
Vela Tomba says
Thanks for the recap!! You have such a great eye!!
I bought at least 6 of the blankets. Two for friends going through chemo. And I have most of the other items. Long time reader here!! ?
LOVE this post! So fun!
Thank you for all your post, I would love to see more Amazon hauls with more affordable options and if you start eating healthy again I would love to see more of what you eat to lose weight it gives me ideas of what to cook on my weight loss journey for the New Year!
I love the Sheaffer top! I have the red and now I want the black and the white too. ?
I have 6 items! Love them all, my fav is def. the shorts. They are everything. Worth every penny.
My favorite is still the hanky panky undies! I haven’t tried the Natori ones – maybe it’s time?
I gifted the throw to my mom and mother in law – they both love them!
Reading this post made me realize how often I buy exactly what you say to get! The Wit & Wisdom jeans – a total favorite. The strapless bra – not on the top 10, but should be – yes! The wedges were a go-to this year. All the things from AC. Thanks for all the great advice!
Of course I purchased the baby Blardigan and I absolutely love it! I also got the Wit and Wisdom black jeans and the Itty Bitty Bootcut jeans. I am happy with all my purchases! You help me out SO much when it comes to styling myself. Thank you!
Sara R. Christine says
I have the tourquoise Sims Stone necklace and will order the black today! I want to order the dark gray Faux suede bag but it’s sold out/1
Happy New Year Sheaffer! I love your blog!
I have almost all of these items! The ones I don’t have, are on my wish list! Here’s hoping for a Nordstrom gift card for my January Birthday!
I’m wearing a pair of the Wit and Wisdom jeans right now, they are such a staple! Happy 2019!
Whoo! I have the blanket and looooooovvee it!
The Wit and Wisdom jeans were absolutely life changing! Bought jeans, the totes, the undies, the wedges, the blankets–your blog is just the best and I love it. You help me look good, eat well and laugh. Cheers to 2019, Sheaffer! Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!
Love this post and all your recommendations. So many of my favorites. The strapless bra is life changing! I ordered 3 of the blankets, the tote, multiple wit and wisdom jeans, the slim line uggs (which are like walking on clouds), and 2 blardigans (baby and hooded).
Julie J says
Thanks to you, I own 2 blardigans and 3 pair of wit & wisdom jeans……I love all of them!!!
Hi, Sheaffer! This year I finally bought the slim Uggs when they went on sale. I LOVE THEM! Thanks for the spot on recommendation!
I’m totally sporting the UGG Amie boots right now as well as Natori undergarments. My MIL received the blanket for Christmas and my kids’ teachers the tote bags. You’ve seen photo evidence of how much wear my Sheaffer top has had…including on stage in the Nutcracker. Basically, you are my personal stylist/shopper and I appreciate all the work and research you do so that I don’t have to. Happy New Year!
Nicole Z. says
I haven’t purchased your rec’s yet. When I do, I want tobuy the tortoiseshell earrings!
I loved my red Sheaffer top for Christmas and it will be great for Valentine’s Day too. I gave one of my guy’s girlfriend the soft and beautiful throw this Christmas and she loved it. I am going to order the W & W jeans that make you look taller and slimmer cuz who doesn’t want some of that? Happy New Year!
Elizabeth Bartlett says
I always LOVE your recommendations! Thanks for the look back on another great year on your blog! Cheers to 2019!! XO
Karla Naber says
My favorite is the blanket. So soft and cozy for MN winters. We have two now but everyone always wants them so may have to buy more!!!
Paula Smith says
I love all my STMT recommended purchases. BUT I am sad that the totes are all sold out. I had finally decided to throw caution to the wind and get one. Oh, well……gotta be quicker.
Jamie Lobdell says
I own 3 blardigans and love them all! I also have a blanket on the way that I cannot wait to snuggle up with. I purchased two things that did not make the list that I love, my green military jacket and my Holt necklace. Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy new year!
Love all of the items especially the sannibel wedge, wisdom jeans and the slim uggs. Thinking about getting one of the suede bags! Thanks for all of your insights this year!
I finally got number 6 this year and have worn it all Christmas break ?so cozy!!!
RuthAnn Hill says
Scheaffer, thanks for making this working girl’s shopping easy! I have 5 of the top 10 items, with several of the blardigans, necklaces, jeans and I love them all. Wishing you and your family a blessed new year!
Cory R says
The slim profile Uggs are the best!
Love my new slimline Uggs! Love my Wit & Wisdom jeans too, and the blardigans, undies, etc!! Sharon
Karen H says
I love so many of these items! I have #10 Bliss Panties, #7 Baby Blardigan and Hooded Blardigan, #4 Uggs Slim Profile Boots (but I have the Kara instead of the Amie – a black pair of Amie’s is on my list), and last but not least, I have ordered the 90 Degree leggings from Amazon… anxiously awaiting their arrival!!
I wear leggings so much more often than I do jeans, but it looks like I will have to order a pair of the black and a pair of the skinny Wit and Wisdom jeans… heck maybe even the boot cut!!
Sheaffer, may I ask favor? As spring fashions are released, will you please do a post on tops that are long enough to wear with leggings? Leggings are my go-to staple but I will only wear them out in public with a long top that covers my behind. I’m desperate for new tops!! 😀
Thank you so much for all your hard work finding these awesome must-haves! I have many more of the must-haves that didn’t make the top 10, but I love them just the same!! xo
Jenny G says
What a great list! Definitely have some ideas for Christmas money now….
I have both Wit and Wisdom Jeans. I LOVE them and I am hard to please with jeans. I have the necklace you posted from Accessory Concierge for the fundraiser for your cousin’s boy. I ordered four of them and they were big hits for Christmas and did something good…always a win for me. The totes will be purchased as birthday presents for some of my favorites this year! If I had one other favorite it’s the Caslon olive green cargo pants. I have worn those so much and just love them. Thanks for your suggestions. I find your choices to be modern but not so overly trendy that I only wear them a season. There is a reason many of them have stayed on your top ten for years! HaPpY NeW YeAr!!!!
It’s a tie between the blardigan and bitty bootcut jeans that I own thanks to you! They’re major staples in my closet and get so much use. I also own and gifted the Sims and Holt necklaces and the suede totes for birthday and xmas presents this year and they were hits with the recipients. Looking forward to your posts in 2019. Your newsletter is always something I look forward to in my inbox!
Lesly f says
I love everything on this list I wish I could have them all??
Marcie Naumowicz says
I own a just 2 things from this list… and I want the rest of it.
Love the blardigan and slim uggs- I’m wearing them today and already had someone stop me to ask about them.
Peggy Arend says
Your top ten list is so helpful! Happy New Year!
Nikki McDonald says
I was so excited to see that your top picks were also several of my favorites too. Guess that’s why they were top picks. I gave the blardigan and throw as Christmas gifts this year and the recipients lived them!!!
I have two blaragans… would love to buy the purple one…itsy bitsy jeans-love. Shorts on my wish list…just haven’t pulled the trigger.
One of my favorite necklaces for the season-the holt necklace. Always reminds me of the incredible Holt. ❤️
Happy New Year!
Becky Carl says
I spend so much money following your blog, lol!! The blanket went to my mother-in-law for Christmas, 3 totes for the daughter-in-laws and girlfriend, blardigan for me and my mother-in-law 4 years ago, strapless bra for me this year, and most other things I have considered or got something similar (Accessory Concierge stone necklace before it became SimStone). Love the Amazon Daily Ritual brand you talked about! Thank you for helping all of us shop!
Tracy Corrier says
I bought #5 Boyfriend jean shorts based on your post and they were a summer staple and my go to for a fall music festival. I was new to your blog at the end of 2017 and two items that I LOVE our the twist front sweaters that I ordered from your blog for Nordy’s – they are an easy and often “go to’!
Teresa Salinas says
I finally got my Ugg boot for Christmas and you were so right…I love them! The next thing on my list is the baby Blardigan and Amazon leggings. Thanks for all of the great recommendations.
Meagan Froh says
For me it was the Colleen Rothschild products! I love every single new product I try and I have slowly replaced all of my old facial products with her line. And my face could not be happier
Meagan Froh says
Oh! And the Soma Cool Nights Sleep pj’s!!! Seriously replacing everything in my pj drawer with these!
I am fairly new to the blog. I enjoy reading all your recommendations. This year I look forward to trying out new items or getting great gift ideas.
Wit and Wisdom jeans and CRothschild products. Missed out on the totes earlier and were sold old today when I tried to order! Thanks for all the product suggestions!
Tammy Lovely says
I love the Sims stone necklace. I originally bought the white one (for myself) Lol. Loved it even more in person, I bought another one for my sister in law for her birthday. Great find, great price and all because of your posts. Love reading them! Thank you!
I’m all about those baby blardigans. I have the black hooded one as well, but I wear the baby blardigan every day!
Dena Argerson says
I received your number two item…the bliss blanket from my students as part of my Christmas gifts this year. I agree with you that it is so cuddly soft and the perfect gift to receive! I think I will have to check out a few of your other top ten gifts…just wish the teacher budget stretched further.
Christine McNeal says
I just got the earrings off Amazon and think they’re great! (And I bought a blardigan last year.) I’ve also purchased sandals from Nordstrom you highlighted and a few of the tops from there as well. LOVE your blog!
I love all the things you post, but I think my favorite posts are Connor’s work wear posts because it helps me get inspiration for work.
Kim Ridge says
The Gateway Jeans (#7) were my FAVORITE 2018 STMT purchase! They really do make me look taller and thinner. I appreciate that they can easily be dressed up or casual. Love, love these jeans!!
Jordan Marie says
The Treasure & Bond wedges are my favorite! And I’ve been eyeing those blardigans for years, maybe soon I’ll make the splurge 🙂
Amy Leonard says
Sheaffer – Is Accessory Concierge still honoring your code for the tote?? I have questioned whether or not I should get myself one and think I might have missed the boat!
They are honoring the code, but they are sold out of totes. 🙁 So sorry!
#Imayhave4too! (Barefoot cardigans)…love them!
Robin W. says
Blardigan. Everybody needs at least one! Fun 2018 list! Thanks, Sheaffer!
I definitely contributed to the popularity of #2. I bought those throws anytime they went on sale. We have one at home and it is my go-to teacher gift. They are always a huge hit and can be used be teachers of all different ages!
Fun going through the list and seeing that I have more than a few of these items! The throws made great Christmas gifts. Thanks for helping us shop, Sheaffer!!!
Debbie Dunbar says
Love the earrings from Amazon and your blog!
M. McGill says
Great list. I loved the military jacket and wedge slip on sneakers.
I have two of the barefoot cardigans ? how often do you all wash them?!
I bought my first pair of Uggs thanks to you and two Sims Stone necklaces, turquoise and ivory. I especially love your heart for special need children and their families. Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!!!
Dawn Crosley says
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the blardigans! I have several for myself & bought many for gifts. They are always a hit!
Cyndi Wheless says
Dear Sheaffer, I never comment on blogs but I love yours and want to let you know. During your trip to LA, you posted this awesome leather jacket. It looked great on you and I wanted my Mom to buy me for my birthday. Well, she is 80 and doesn’t purchase online without assistance. So, in order to give credit where credit is due, I went to her house and ordered from a link to your blog! I love the blardigan and plan my work and leisure clothes around it! I also give you credit when I review on Nordstrom!
Cyndi, you are SO SWEET to even think about that! And I really appreciate you mentioning me in your Nordstrom reviews as well. Thank you so so much. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I’m embarrassed to admit how many of these I own. ? But my newest faves are the slim Uggs I got for Christmas!!! I mean… Sheaffer told me to! ??♀️
Erin Sutch says
I have 4 blardigans because you introduced them to me. I’m constantly cozy! Happy New Year!
Laura H says
I bought the baby blardigan and have loved it…so cozy!
New follower here – loved this post! I’ll be checking out all these links. Loved the Amazon haul review too – would definitely love to see more of those 🙂 I got a few of the 90 degree reflex leggings and love them as well – most comfortable leggings I’ve ever tried!
I love the blardigan years later. I’m going to have to try the jeans and shoes. I love your style!! Happy New Year!
Michelle Cooper says
I love all your recommendations! The blardigan is one of my all time favorite splurges – so worth it!
Karen Hohman says
Great post Sheaffer! About to order the tote. Looking forward to 2019! Happy New Year!
Great list and spot on!
Love the wit and wisdom jeans!
Love the holt necklace- not only is it pretty but also for such a great cause.
Lynn Furr says
I have purchased at least 4 of the 10 based on your recommendations and love them. The Wit & Wisdom itty bitty bootcut jeans are to die for; I get complimented every time I wear them. I bought the sims necklace in the cream before a trip to Memphis; it was a great accessory. I bought the afaghans and the suede totes when you had them on your site and gave both as Christmas gifts to different groups of girlfriends. They all loved them.
I love your blog and appreciate the effort you put into making recommendations. They are “spot on”.
You’re right. I have 2 blardigans & I want the purple baby blardigan in the worst way. I swore I’d never buy one. Eek! I so look forward to your posts.
Julee Patterson says
This is kind of embarrassing… I have #10, #8b, #7, #6 (purchased in previous year), #4, #3 (bought and returned b/c strap too big on my ankle but I wanted to love), #2 and #3 from amazon. But you make everything look like I need it!
Me? I’m not influenced by bloggers… then the Top 10 lists come out and you’re like oh I have that… and that… yup that should’ve made the top 10 I mean I have it… and then you see you have at least 50% of the items!! Fave tho… the wedges… wait no… the blanket…
Hey, Teya! Your comment made me laugh! So happy that you trusted me to push you towards some items. 🙂 xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I love my turquoise Sims Stone necklace! I’m hoping for the ivory one for my birthday.
I love the Wit and Wisdom jeans. I have 3 pairs thanks to you! I also have 3 baby blardigans, because 1 isn’t enough:)
The favorite for me was hands down the tote! But I think I will need to order a few of those blankets and give the Ugg boots a try as well! Great list and great picks!
Happy new year!
Shelley Caldwell says
I bought 5 of the Sims Stone necklaces, kept one, & gave the other 4 away as gifts.
Gorgeous necklace. Natori Bliss, I have 15 because they are wonderful & go perfect with Natori bras which I buy 6 in January & 6 in July because when you find a bra that fits, it’s worth the investment! Wit & Wisdoms, I have 3 pair & love the fit & comfort….Kendra Scott Drusy platinum bracelet you showed with your watch on a post, I just ordered this week & cant wait to see it on. I didn’t see it as one of the favorites but it is going to be one of mine.
Blardigans & blankets …… priceless coziness is how I can describe them.
I enjoy reading your posts & want to say Thank You for updating my wardrobe with your sense of style. I would have never stepped out of my comfort zone without seeing the outfits you put together.
I got one of the blankets for me and one for brother and SIL…we all love them. 🙂
Sue M says
Reading this post made me realize how often I take your suggestions. Spot on picks!
Amy S says
I have the Uggs and I’m obsessed. I’ve also tried and loved Colleen Rothschild products and the Barrington Savannah tote because #sheaffertoldmeto. They would definitely make my top 10! Also I may or may not have the Lush tunic in 5 colors. It’s the perfect weight for Florida “winter”!
Leah B. says
The blardigan is one of my all time favorite purchases! What a fun post!!
Thanks for all the hard work you do to find the cutest things!!
Christine Morgan says
I’m on my 3rd Blardigin❤️❤️❤️
Love those blankets, they make great gifts too!!
Always interesting to see the favorites from everyone!
Shantel O says
Happy New Year! Thanks for posting this list, I need to order the blanket, the necklace (I was sad I missed the Holt) and the Amazon earrings. The Wit & Wisdom jeans are in my closet because of your recommendation. I look forward to all of your 2019 posts.
Rachel Pursley says
So I definitely was one of the many that bought multiple suede totes as gifts! I stocked up and still have a couple left I’m holding onto as emergency gifts. I always love your suggestions!
Katie Harris says
I have the sims stone necklace and love it! I also did a few for Christmas and they were big hits! I’m ordering the black pants for sure! I’ve been wanting for a while now! I can’t tell you how much I love your blog! I seriously look forward to reading it! You make it so much fun and I love your style!
I love all of your recommendations! I own the blardigan & the Wit & Wisdom jeans, love that they have petite options. I definitely want to try the Bliss throw. Thanks for all that you do, looking forward to see what you bring in the new year to us!!!
I’ve ordered the leggings, can’t wait to get them!!!
Angela Sharbono says
Oh my goodness! I have 8 of the 13 items!! I love reading your blog! You have boosted my style and made me smile every week! Wishing you many blessings in the New Year!
Hi! I definitely have #6, 9, and 10 thanks to you! I absolutely love each item and am so appreciative of you posting these things! My wardrobe wouldn’t be the same without you. Thanks! 🙂
Love your posts… You are so fabulous…. Hope you have a Healthy and Happy New Year!!!
Annaliza R says
I need to order the blankets for my family. We love throw blankets in our home!
I love my wit and wisdom jeans. It’s hard to pick just one favorite thing, but I think those are the jeans I wear the most. The blanket for me is a close second ?
I’ve always wanted a blardigan!!! Guess I’ll need to get me one! Great top 10!!
My wit and wisdom jeans are my number one by far!
Mist M says
A favorite that I have from your posts is Colleen Rothschild skincare products❤️?
Hi Sheaffer & happy new year! This was a fun post to read! I ordered two things from the Amazon post: the leggings & the earrings. I have 2 blardigans & I gifted one to my niece when she had her first baby. I own two pairs of the slim Uggs. I have a pair or two of the wit & wisdom jeans and turned one of my besties on to them as well. She was trying on $150-200 jeans at Nordstrom but when she tried on the w&w pair, they were the clear winners. My closet is full of great items thanks to you. Thank you for a fun year full of great posts and happy shopping.
PS please tell me you’ll be re-capping Colton’s season as the bachelor!
Hi, Sara! Yes, I’m recapping it. 🙂 xoxo
Love the top 10! Looking to add to my blardigan collection!
I always enjoy your posts! Thank you!
Such a fun list! The blardigan and blanket seem to be a cozy pair!
Love them all! Happy new year!
Katie Marye says
I finally ordered a blardigan this year. That one blardigan turned into three! I loved it that much. I’m also going to order the #2 blanket!
Trindin cavalier says
Love , love, love so many items on the list!
Planning to get some of the panties soon!
Thanks for always posting great ideas and sales!
Happy New Year!!!!
I still wear the original blardigan and the baby blardigan all the time. Still some of my favorites and I got the original when you first posted about it however many years ago that was! Love it!
Kim Reed says
I bought the amazon earrings as Christmas gifts! Love them!
Like so many of your readers, I’m shocked how many of your top ten I own!! Thanks for all you do!
Ashley Baxter says
My absolute favorite from this list is the Wit and Wisdom jeans!!! I bought them in dark denim and black. I love how comfy they are and that they can be dressed up or down. Also at 5’3″ I LOVE that the petite length is perfect.
Kathy Lang says
I’ve been on vacation all week in Napa and San Francisco, and your blog post is the only one I’ve read coming off my vacation high! Ha! This was a fun post, and I personally have these top 10 items—#2–so soft and I use it every evening! #4-I have them in black and love wearing my uggs in the winter. #6–I have two blardigans and constantly wear them all year long—instead of a robe. #10b- the Bliss underwear are comfortable and cute! I’m thinking I need a few more of these favorites though considering Accessory Concierge is offering such a great sale!
Kori Chambers says
I finally bought the Ugg boots this year. I already owned a blardigan and the Sims Stone necklace per your recommendation and wear them both all the time! Thank you for making my casual style more of a style and not just things from Target and Old Navy!
Lauren B says
The blardigan and the Wit & Wisdom skinny jeans are also my faves! Love this post!
I have a gift card to amazon, so your top 3 from the amazon haul is perfect timing!
D’Lora Staton says
I love my slim profile Ugg’s that I got this time last year because you put the sale in your blog… thank you! I have purchased a blardigan and the throw for gifts( someday I will get them for myself too!) and will order some panties before the day ends?
I’ve been following you for a few years now and have bought many of your recommendations. Your posts never disappoint! Thanks!
Andrea Ruiz says
What a fun end of year blog!! I am a big blardigan fan! I practically live in mine during the winter.
Sarah J says
The tote from Accessory Concierge is so cute!! So sad it’s sold out
Love the blanket!!!
Katie harris says
I got the tortoise earrings from amazon today! They’re so cute. I can’t wait to wear them!
Tammie N. says
My sweet daughter gave me the Sims stone necklace in white! It is my favorite present this year!
Sharon Finnegan says
I wear the slim amie uggs all the time, thanks for recommending them!
Just found you. Have none of these. Not sure what to get first!!
Dawn, GET THE BLARDIGAN! You will love it so much, you will wear it all the time, and you will trust my recommendation for future purchases! 🙂 xoxo
Lauren Klein says
I have 3 Blardigans thanks to you and I purchased a few pieces from you Amazon review & love them!
I realize that I have them all! Thank you so much for the effort and work you put into your blog. It is a highlight of my Monday-Wednesday-Friday mornings and I always look forward to seeing what you recommend. I gifted blardigans, soft cozy blankets and suede totes this Christmas to to rave reviews! God bless you and may 2019 be a wonderful year for you.
Such sweet words, Kathi! Thank you so much!!! xoxo
10a & 10b are FAVORITES for sure!!
Victoria Chan says
The cozy blanket was a no-brainer and I have no regrets!
Kelly Franks says
I think it’s finally time to bite the bullet and get those uggs. Mine have seen better days. Hope y’all had a great Christmas!
Alison Hughes says
What a fun post! I love my Wit & Wisdom
Jeans. So great for sucking it all in. I own 2 blardigans, the baby ones. I have given them as gifts. I love my Uggs! I loved reading your Amazon haul post. Nordstrom and Amazon know where it’s at, with free shipping. Have a blessed New Year!
I have a blardigan but hardly ever wear it since I don’t think it is appropriate for work. My sister has the blanket and loves it!
Janet! I wear mine almost every single day at home!!!! If you aren’t going to wear it out, you for sure need to be wearing it as lounge wear!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Sarah Jarnagin says
I purchased the Bliss throw and the Ugg Amie boots. The Amie boots are my favorite thing this year!!! I love them!
Amy Leonard says
I COMBED through all the posts and ordered a few things!! That’s what Christmas gift cards are for!! Thanks for all of the posts – always enjoy looking for new things!
Betsy Tryhus says
I have 4 blardigans and my 10yo son just got one for Christmas. They are just that good! ? But seriously, thank you for all of the work that you put into your blog. I have discovered so many awesome items I would never have found on my own!
I love the totoes too! I bought one for all three of my sisters and my mother for Christmas! Love this blog!!!
Elisa moore says
I received the Barefooted Dreams Blardigan for Christmas after I told my husband it was on my Nordstrom Wish List?. I can’t imagine life without it. Since Christmas, I’ve worn it EVERY. DAY! How many days until next Christmas?!?!!!!!!
Love this post! This year, you convinced me to buy black jeans– I haven’t owned any in years, and am finding them so versatile! Mine are Articles of Society, soft and stretchy. I’ve waited two years for those jean shorts to go on sale, and they never do… thinking I can’t make another summer without them, though! Thanks for all you do, I’ve been a reader for YEARS!
Lyn F says
I have 2 sims stone necklaces, a couple blardigans, bliss undies…the only undies one needs, and wit and wisdom jeans are game changers! Thanks for always pointing me in the right direction!
I love the blanket! Purchased many of them for Christmas gifts this year. Thank you!!
Heather L says
I’ve had the Sims necklace in turquoise for a few years now (my first-ever STMT purchase!) and I recently got one of the super-soft throws in the most gorgeous shade of gray. I “need” a couple more! Looking forward to seeing what you find and share with us in 2019!
Tracy w says
Loved your top ten!! Who am I kidding, I love your blog and all the ideas you post!!!
Katie Barrett says
Thanks to you, all the girls in my family are obsessed with our Blardigans!
I love your fashion advice – Happy New Year!
I have three blardigans! Still love the Callisto wedges (yellow!) that you recommended in 2013!
Linda E says
Thanks to you, I traded in my VS bras for Natori and my Lee jeans for Wit and Wisdom. However, my #1, ABSOLUTE SHEAFFERTOLDMETO find is the plush blanket from Nordstrom. And, here’s why…A friend of mine from high school, who I recently reconnected with, has Stage IV cancer. I went to see her after Christmas and wanted to bring her a present. I wasn’t sure of her dietary restrictions so food gifts were out. Flowers seemed like they would require care to water and not last. And then, you posted this list on Instagram and I instantly knew what to get her. I ordered the blanket in the deep plum and picked it up at my local Nordstrom’s on my way to see her. Of course, it was wrapped with a beautiful ribbon. The look of sheer delight when she opened her gift is burned in my memory. And she just texted me to tell me that she has been cocooned in her blanket since our visit two days ago. THANK YOU Sheaffer for pointing me to the perfect gift. It is practical and luxurious at the same time!
Hi, Linda! I’m so sorry about your friend. I know how difficult it is to watch somebody you love go walk such a hard road. I’m so glad you have her the blanket. xoxo
I have the throw and a blardigan but got the slim UGGs and the Sims Stone for Christmas and love the. Both
Seri Roth says
Love this review and the fun giveaway! I’ve read your blog EVERY day in 2018 and plan to again in 2019! Happy new year 🙂
Thankful for your blog and the way you help us navigate fashion and encourage people at the same time! Happy New Year to you!!
Becky Tompkins says
Hi Sheaffer! I already commented a couple days ago with the TEN purchases I have made (& LOVE) in the couple months since I “discovered” you LOL! However, I wanted to add that I also got the Kendra Scott earrings and the packing cubes that you recommended!
Amy Neal says
I have 5 out of the 10 all bought based on your recommendations. I love them all also. Happy New Year!!
Erin Smith says
So fun to see this list! Thanks for keeping us all stylish!!
I came for the bachelor posts (even though I don’t watch the show) but stay for your clothing – you inspire me to rework my current clothes and step into new pieces I would t have thought of!
Melissa D. says
Clearly I like to listen to your suggestions as I have several of the items listed. The Natori bra and Bliss panties are definitely the items that I most often suggest to others. I also love my blardigan and have gifted two as well. Great suggestions! I’m loving your amazon hauls as well! Keep up the great work Sheaffer! Love the blog both for fashion & fun but also for hearing about your sweet family!
Debbie H. says
Love love love the blardigans! Have several & gave the blanket as Christmas gift! Happy New Year.
Kelly Lane Nation says
I love my necklace… but I’m surprised the peacoat wasn’t listed on this. I bought mine in the camel color and I wore it so much over the past few months. It’s light enough to layer but looks nice. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/thread-supply-double-breasted-peacoat/3738126
Lindsey Gould says
Oh my gosh… thank you for an amazing year! I have ordered SO many things and loved them, but most recently, the amazon leggings and sweatshirt! I’m literally wearing them right now!
Happy new year!! I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for you!!
I love your top ten list and I love following you! Alright, I love the Natori Pure luxe and Bliss perfection bras! Natori have become my absolute favorite bras! I agree too on the red carpet strapless bra, hands down the best strapless bra I have ever worn! I could not believe, it does not move!!!
I bought the Calypso barefoot dreams cardigan several years ago when I first started following you, the original, but I really think I need a baby blardigan!!! Their stuff is just so amazing!
Next, the Blank NYC shorts, loved them this summer!!!
Another item I have from your list, the Amie Ugg boots! They are perfect, I wish the black wasn’t sold out, because I just love this style!
I bought the treasure and bond sandal in cognac and my daughter got the exact matching pair from the girls department, so that was just fun! She’s 10 and thought the world of getting to wear a wedge!!;) They are great sandals!
The last item I have bought from your list is the plush throw!! We have 3, they are THE BEST!!! They wash up so great and with 3 kids ours get washed!!;) I got my dad one with his Christmas gifts this year and now my mom is really wanting one, so I plan on getting her one for Valentines!!:)
I love these items I bought so much!! Thanks again for all your input!!
Also, I have bought a pair of those amazon leggings, haven’t worn them yet, but plan on it! Then the jewelry!! I have never bought jewelry on amazon, but!!! I now have several pair in my cart after this post! Perfect prices for fun trendy jewelry and add on to gifts!!
Love following you Sheaffer!! Happy New Year to
I love your blog! Just started reading this year but have already made a few great purchases thanks to your rec’s. I have 2 Natori bras, several pairs of the Natori Bliss, several Soma undies, a Sims Stone necklace and the Holt one too! The wine tote, a hooded blardigan…wow, have been busy since I started following! Oh and received the slim profile Uggs for Christmas but were too big. Will hope to possibly snag a smaller size but looks like the size I need is currently sold out. Was so excited, I’ve always wanted a pair of Uggs! And on sale, too! Thanks for such a wide range of recommendations and a really fun blog to read!
Rebecca M says
I got the denim jacket and love it!
AMY STETZLER says
One of these days I’m going to get a blarnigan to see what all the hype is about!
Carrie M says
Love this post! I realized I have 5 of your top 10 and gifted both 1 & 2 this year for Christmas as well! Such great picks and making life easier for busy working moms! Thank you!
Ashley Hatfield says
Yep, the plush throws were definitely a favorite! Thanks for your work you do here! I read each morning.
I have the Sims Stone necklace in white and the Plush Throw in red. Both are so well-made and well-used. The blardigan and Uggs are 2 items on my “Wish List.”
Jamie Sypniewski says
I love everything on that list! Looking forward to all you will find in 2019!
I have purchased 6 of the 10 items you recommended and love each one. I really enjoy your posts and your style – thank you Schaeffer!
Monica Kertz says
I first purchased the Wit & Wisdom jeans and then the baby blardigan. My next purchase will be the SIms stone necklace (because I’m a Sims, too.) The shorts and sandals are on my wish list (waiting on a sale that will probably never happen). I unfortunately missed out on the lace Sheaffer top, but I did spot one from across the room at a NYE event last night – which led to a discussion about your blog with a friend. (You may have a new follower). Love your blog!
I would love to own a blardigan!!
Sarah Parsons says
Sheaffer, I love the Sims Stone necklace! Way back when you had the discount code, I bought one in every color to give as teacher gifts. I work at my kids’ school and know their teachers pretty well. Each one had a perfect color for them. Well, I had a little trouble with restraint and started wearing them. I ended up wearing EVERY SINGLE ONE!! And the teachers they were intended for told me how much they loved them. Oops! I guess the Sims Stone is my favorite of the year!
That is hysterical, Sarah! xoxo
I want a circle blardigan so bad but can’t justify the expense… No matter how much wear I would get out of it. For now I admire all of yours from afar. Happy New year!!
Blardigan!! & blanket… I guess, all things cozy 🙂
Toni Mahana says
I have so many items that you have recommended. But of the top 10 listed I have a few of the Notari bra and i have the Gateway Jean. Legs for days. HA
