Best of 2017

I hope everyone had a great New Year's eve! I prefer low key NYE and this year went to a party at a friends house. The highlight was definitely the glitter confetti we popped at midnight! Talk about the best photo ops of the night!

As I start a new year I like to look back on the past year. I thought I would share the best purchases I made over the past year. I'm only including the ones that you can still purchase now, since I don't think it would be useful to share anything you can't get anymore. 

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 

This list has a mixture of splurges and deals. When making purchases over the last year I tried to focus on quality and classic items. That doesn't mean I steered away completely from trendy items, I just tried to keep them to a minimum. By far my favorite purchase of the year was the Chanel bag I bought myself for my 30th birthday! This was a special purchase and something I was thinking and saving up for awhile so I'm not including it in my list for 2017.

Travel was a big part of 2017 for me and some of my best purchases reflect that. When I was planning my trip to Italy and Croatia I knew I needed a great pair of tennis shoes that I could wear with everything. I didn't want them to look like work out tennis shoes and wanted to be able to pair them with shorts, dresses, and pants! As someone that rarely wears tennis shoes outside the gym, this was quite the task but I fell in love with this pair. They got me thru my trip to Europe and I actually find myself wearing them more often than I ever thought!

A pair of black jeans has been on my list for awhile. I just hadn't find the right pair for me, until these! These fit like a glove and dress up any look. I like pairing them with black booties, like these, to create a long lean look!

Buying lugging can be stressful, atleast it was for me, until I found Away luggage. This carryon has everything I can ask for: hard shell, divider, lock, 360 degree wheels and a usb charger! I decided to get the dark green color so I would recognize my luggage in the sea of black and red suitcases. I will probably be purchasing the medium size one in the next couple weeks!

After wearing over the knee boots for a few seasons and realizing how versatile they are I decided to invest in a high quality pair. When they were 30% off I I tried on several different styles and settled on the Stuart Weitzman Tieland Over the Knee Boots. I wear these boots all the time, with sweater dresses, leggings, jeans and skirts! They are great for both work with a sweater dress and tights or for a night out with a leather skirt!

What are some of your favorite purchases for 2017?
