My Top Buys of 2013
I know most of you are deep in the middle of Christmas shopping, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share my favorite purchases this year. All items I swear by and love. They would be make great gifts for anyone including yourself! This year I tried to be more selective about what I bought. I am trying to edit my closet and only have things I really love. More about investment pieces and less trendy items. Here are my top 10 favorite purchases this year (although a few were gifts given to me).
I lusted after these boots forever before finally taking the plunge and buying them during a Shopbop sale. I have to say they are honestly the best booties around. They are comfortable, not too high of a heel and go with everything!! I have them in gray and my mom just recently brought this dark brown pair back for me from Chicago. They run true to size. They are on sale in a burgundy/brown color here.
I stand by the fact that these are the best leggings I have ever purchased. They offer so much support and really suck you in, super flattering. I have been wearing them everyday post baby to try and suck my stomach back in and I swear its working. Even if it is not my tummy looks flat while I am wearing them. They are totally on the expensive side for leggings but I swear they are worth every penny.
I know I rave about these often but they really are some of the best jeans around. Super flattering and comfortable.
I love the look of the D'Orsay flat this year and while I loved the Vince version I just could not bring myself to pay $300 for them. This Chinese Laundry pair is amazing, so comfortable. I wear mine practically daily. They are on sale right now at Nordstroms too for only $44!!
I recently purchased this purse and I am smitten with it. It is the perfect large size to toss all my stuff and the kids stuff in. I love that you can carry it as a tote or fold it over and have a smaller cross-body bag—the best of both worlds. A fabulous everyday purse.
I ask for these slippers every year for Christmas and for some reason never get them. Last year after Christmas I used some of my Christmas money to finally buy them and it was the best purchase ever. I wear them all the time, they feel so soft on my feet and I think as far as slippers go they are cute. Best slippers around, I tell you.
I have to admit I am not a huge jewelry person—I tend to gravitate more toward everyday pieces I can wear all the time. This was a birthday gift and one of my favorite necklaces. I love that you can layer it with longer necklaces or wear it alone. Such a simple piece that also stands out.
Ever since I saw this dress floating around on Pinterest I knew I needed it. I have worn it so much, pregnant and not pregnant. Such a great everyday dress. They don't make it with the tan pockets anymore but the black version is available and on sale for 30% off!
::JOIE MARLO BLOUSE::
This the most versatile blouse. It is longer so you can pair with leggings or skinny jeans. I have the blue color and wear it all the time but now I want the dusty pink or silver color.
::TKEES FLIP FLOPS::
By far the best flip flops ever. I own the nude color and wear them all the time. I plan to buy another pair for this spring. So comfortable and they go with everything!
