First of all I can’t believe I’m running around this far into the winter and it’s 50+ degrees out! I’m usually bundled up to my eyeballs and doing my best to stay inside haha. I’m not complaining one bit, as much as I love a good snow day I actually can’t stand to be cold, so I’ll take these warmer days (wind and all haha) and enjoy wearing my new favorite sneaks!
There are so many days when I have to run out the door, especially lately, and I find myself grabbing a few of the same items over and over. With the year coming to an end I thought it would be fun to make a list of my some of my favorite purchases of 2018! These are all items I’ve used on SO many occasions and have more than justified their purchase. All of these items can be purchased at Nordstrom, which always makes my shopping a breeze! I’ll take one stop shopping any day, and I love that I can shop for Sophie there too!
Best purchases of 2018:
MZ Wallace Medium Metro Tote: Not only is this tote adorable but it’s so practical for so many different uses! It comes with a smaller zip pouch inside and has a great wide zipper. I’ve used it for travel as a carry-on and as a weekender tote as well as a handbag. The material is super soft and luxurious and it also comes in three other colors. If you’re in the market for a diaper bag this would make a great one! The material is easy to clean and I think it would look so chic. Plus it’s definitely roomy enough for everything you need!
Zella Live In High Waist Leggings: These are a must, always! I get asked all the time to compare these to other brands and I just can’t do it – these are by far my favorite athleisure leggings! They’re great for working out and running errands. I also love that I can wash and dry them and they never lose their shape. Also, Sophie’s hopped on the bandwagon with this one and is obsessed with the Girls Zella leggings! Her’s are high waisted too and so sturdy – because we all know how hard kids can be on clothes.
Converse Chuck Taylor “Shoreline” Sneaker: These are a more recent purchase but I can’t even count how many times I’ve worn them already! These are the slip-on version of the original Chuck Taylors and I have to say they are SO much more comfortable. I absolutely love the look of these cute sneakers and know I’ll be wearing them a ton! Also there may or may not be a pair heading Sophie’s way as we speak… haha! Nordstrom has this exact same style in the Kids sizes and I just couldn’t help myself. *Note that for both mine and Sophie’s CT’s we went down one full size. They run large so keep that in mind when ordering!
Quay Australia x Desi Perkins Sahara Aviator Sunglasses (gold/smoke): Even though these aren’t pictured here I don’t think any of us can deny that I have definitely over-worn these sunglasses this past year haha! I love the look of an aviator and they go so easily with everything. I also love that they are lightweight on my face and have 100% UV protection – which is great since I have really sensitive eyes.
What a fun year it’s been being able to share my style here with all of you! I can’t believe 2018 is almost behind us and a new year will be here before we know it. I’m so excited to see what 2019 brings and I’m so thankful for each and every one of you that make all of this possible!
