2017 was a year that I feel like I really defined and refined my personal style. Previously, I was a bit more of an impulse shopper. If I saw something in the store and liked it right then, I’d buy it, put it in my closet, and there was a a good chance it would sit there for awhile before I ever used it. I would buy outside of they style that I like, feeling like I needed to mix things up or try something new. Time and time again, I’d go back to my favorite things – neutral colors, comfortable layers, easy to wear pieces. Last year, I was a lot more intentional with my purchases. I took more time to consider buying an item and, if I didn’t wear/use it within about a month, it went back! My closet is a lot more cohesive and versatile – I’m able to mix and match most things, so I get a lot more use out of everything!
I thought it would be fun and helpful to share my favorite purchases from last year. These are products/items that I’d consider “tried and true”. Things I used a ton (and continue to) that are worth the money.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I’ve shared about this in my skincare post, but I love this product. I use it every single day and it has really helped my skin.
Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara
This mascara has transformed my naturally-full and long lashes! It adds the right amount of volume and length without too much effort. I buy it in multiples whenever it goes on sale.
Bite Agave Lip Mask
I have this on me at all time – adds just the right amount of moisture!
Other Beauty Products I Love
Ugg Aira Knit Scuff Slippers
I love slipping these on every morning when I get out of bed. Super warm and the hard bottom adds extra support!
Aerie Plush Sleep Leggings
You guys have heard me rave about this plenty, but they’re that good. I have them in two colors and wear one just about every day around the house.
Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Robe
I was in the market for a robe last fall and came across this one. It seemed pretty hyped up in the reviews, so I was skeptical. I mean, can a robe really be that great? I’m here to tell you that yes, yes it can. So warm (sometimes too warm!) and cozy.
Other Loungewear Items I Love
Cuyana Classic Zip-Around Wallet
Mike gave this to me on our wedding day, personalized with my new initials! It’s special because of what it reminds me of, but it’s also a super functional wallet.
Retro Round Frame Sunglasses
I wear these all the time. I love the oversized frames and you can’t beat the price!
Madewell Medium Transport Tote
You probably recognize this bag from this post or Instagram. It’s been my go-to in the colder months. It holds a ton of stuff and I love that it’s open – easy access!
