We are finally here, the first weekend of the new year! We are still in a haze over here; Lincoln got diagonised with influenza so I worked the first half of the week while Mike was home, but then I have been home since New Years doing as much work from home as I can manage. Even though we are out of sorts, having Mike back to work and Jackson back in school has provided a tiny bit more structure, which I am craving after two weeks of NO structure. Now we just need to stay healthy! To start off the new year, I have my weekly roundup of favorites below!
Top Sellers of 2019
One of the most rewarding parts of this gig is seeing what you all love most. It is no fun sharing content if the people reading it don’t enjoy it! 😉 I shared my top ten sellers, but because there were a few ties, it ended up being a few more than that. No surprise, the majority of the top sellers were from Amazon! You can head here to see them all!
Top Ten Blog Posts of 2019
I had so much fun pulling together this post. Some of these posts were actually published back in 2018, but thanks to Pinterest, they continue to be some of my most visited posts! The number one post of the year was the Rose All Day bridal shower that I threw my sister-if you like pink and sparkles, this post is for you!
Over On Instagram
Yesterday on Instagram I shared one of my goals for 2020. I LOVE sharing fashion finds with you all, and part of this ‘job’ is to shop for the latest trends and hot items. However, I am fully aware that what I share can feel excessive. For the sake of transparency, I DO receive a good amount of gifted items. Often, when I am sharing multiple boutique items in one try on, the items were provided to me. I share this because not only do I want you all to think I actually shop that much, and also to help put into perspective that I do this as a job and part of that job is sharing products from brands I love and choose to work with!
Still, I know that the pressure to keep up can be overwhelming, and not everyone can purchase dozens of new items every single month. So, yesterday I shared that my goal this year is to show you MORE with LESS. That means repurposing items for different looks, and showing you current options of items that may not be from this season. This is a challenge for myself to reign it in, and also to show you all how to shop your own closet! All of the items below are ones I wear repeatedly, and can be styled so many ways!
This look is one of my favorites lately-this sweater is cashmere and SO soft. It is one size fits all so if you are petite it will fit more like a dress. My boots are SO good and are made to withstand temperatures as low as -4 degrees Fahrenheit. I wore them sledding the other weekend and my feet were warm the entire time!
To celebrate the New Year, Fabletics is offering 65% off of everything! This is the best deal I have seen next to the Black Friday sale! I shared some of my favorite new styles over on stories-if you snag a set, the discounts are even greater than 65% off!
Restock of This Bag
I have gotten so many questions on my checkered tote, and it has been out of stock for the past few months. There are similar designs out there, but I cannot speak to their quality or design. This one is fantastic though, and has held up so well through LOTS of wear and tear. You can FINALLY snag it here, and in three colors! In honor, I am sharing some of my favorite looks with this bag (and mostly just taking a trip down memory lane to when we had greenery instead of snow).
