Most worn items + favorite purchases of 2018


We have that one pair of shoes that we always gravitate towards. How about that one top that you wear all the time because it looks great with anything? Perhaps you have a dress that you fall in love with every single time you wear it or see it in your closet. I certainly have my go-to pieces. That is why we are taking a look (one last time) at some of my favorite looks and pieces from 2018.

I used them a lot last year and I anticipate that my wool berets will still be my go-to hat in 2019. They have been a lifesaver for me when I had a bad hair day. Plus they are great when you need an extra pop of color!

TOMS slip-on shoes


I wear my TOMS as often as I can because they are just so darn comfortable! I love that they pair well with almost any outfit. Plus, your purchase does a lot of good for someone in need. For every pair of shoes sold, TOMS gives a pair to someone in need overseas!

Jack by BB Dakota Floral Eyelet dress

How can anyone say no to eyelet detailing? This dress was by far one of my favorite purchases this year because of how darling it is! The romantic bell sleeves may it an elegant choice for baby showers, going out with friends or to wear on a warm summer’s day when you want to dress up! It also comes in red.


Solgaard Original Lifepack backpack

This is a piece I got later in the year but it has already become my go-to bag for everything! I carry my laptops (one from work and a personal one) plus the essentials like my business cards, notebooks and more. You can learn more about the backpack and Solgaard here.

Cece ruffle sleeve top

I am so glad that my favorite top for layer got re-stocked! I bought this top during Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale last year and it continues to be one of my favorite pieces. I have worn it over a pullover sweater for a chic and cozy look.
