BB's Weekly Link Round-Up: My Recent Buys & Weekend Sales

Things I'm loving this month

I can't believe it's February already. Today I'm sharing some recent buys and more finds I'm loving at the moment - from a stylish new nursing top to Free People looks for less!

1. BP Ankle Boots: I am so in love with these boots. They look like designer pairs that cost hundreds! The stacked heel is super comfy. I did go up a half size after reading the sizing recommendation - from a 9.5 to a 10 - and they fit perfectly. I kinda want all the colors but for now I got the black.

2. If you're ready to splurge on jewelry that won't tarnish after a couple wears, check out Au Rate (or direct your sig-o there in time for Valentine's Day). All of their stunning yet simple jewelry is made in NYC.

3. Leith Easy Circle Cardigan: Now 40% off! I am slowly collecting this cardigan in all colors. What can I say, it's just that good! I feel like you really notice the quality difference with cardigans just by spending a little bit more (than say, you would at Target or Old Navy). And I live in cardigans all winter long. This time I bought the grey pearl. I also have the olive and can't wait to scoop up the pink once they restock! I wear size Small in these.

4. Topshop Leopard Cardigan: I pounced on this leopard cardigan because it's the perfect print has that chunky, oversized look I've been wanting. It's really warm, too. I got the size 6 US (fits like 2-4) because reviewers said it runs large, and I'm glad I did.

5. Nom Maternity Top: Now 20% off! This is a well-made top that I think looks great third trimester and should be perfect for nursing. With my first, I wasted money on a lot of cheap nursing tops that did not function at all. I ended up just wearing long stretchy or loose tees and tops that could be pulled up - which totally works! But I'm looking forward to having this top for nursing when I'm out and about. I got the size small (4-6) and it's snug but I think the medium would have been too big in the shoulders. Great for layering. Also I bought the "burgundy color" which looks pink on the website but it is not pink at all in real life. Just a tiny burgundy microstripe.

6. Goodnight Macaroon: Everything is 30% off with code CLASSIC, including this Chloe dupe and this chunky scarf.

7 & 9. Looking for that Free People look for less? I got a reader request for Free People thermal dupes, and I have two recommendations. First, search Target for Knox Rose tops like this one. Even has the little thumb holes. Or browse Zulily for thermal tops and tunics. This waffle knit top is a great dupe for this Free People top (and half the price!).

8. Kohl's: Take an extra 15% off with code COLD15. I'm eying this faux leather backpack to replace my current bag (falling apart).

10. (Not shown above) I ordered this Ingrid & Isabel Maternity Plaid Top and it is such a cute top! It's super soft and versatile. The small (4-6) fits me well.

Plus, don't miss these links & sales:

If you buy select Better Homes & Gardens products from Walmart, you can get a free subscription to their magazine. I recently ordered this headboard which I absolutely love (I need to buy nice pillows and stuff and take photos for you guys because it looks so good in real life!) so I'm going to get the free magazine, too. Thanks for this reader tip!

Abercrombie & Fitch: All jeans are 50% off for a limited time.

In case you missed it, check out my round-up of Valentine's Day gift ideas from just $7.

College Fashion styles a metallic puffer for day and night. Don't forget this metallic puffer at Target, too!

Sydne Style is crushing on pink and red (one of my favorite combos).

Fountain of 30 shows us how to get this Keri Russell look for less. I will need to feature her more - her style is so good!
