Moving on to the next set of favorites, today we’re discussing my 2017 Best of Fashion, or Fashion Favorites as I like to call them. I’ve lumped in everything that I wore the most in 2017 on my body-whether that was a handbag, jewelry, shoes, or actual clothes. Just like the Best of Beauty post, I’ve broken down all my picks into categories for you. Let’s start with one of my favorites…handbags!
If you’re a long time reader, then you’ll know my love for GiGi New York. I’ve been carrying their bags for about 4-5 years now, and I even got to be their ambassador to launch a special limited collection this fall. I love the simplicity of their bags, the color options, the price point…they just tick a lot of boxes for me. So it should not be a surprise that my most worn bag for 2017 was their Zip Taylor Tote. It’s a smaller sized tote, that completely zips. It’s the perfect bag for everyday wear or travel, and I adore it.

I have quite a few favorites, and again, I tend to gravitate to the same brands. Kendra Scott, Gorjana, Argento Vivo and BaubleBar are perennial picks, but I also discovered a brand that’s new to me-Nickel & Suede. If you’re familiar with the blogger One Little Momma, then you’ll know all about the line of leather-based jewelry she and her husband sell. She’s a great woman and it’s a great brand-especially if you want to wear larger earrings but your lobes can’t support the weight.

I have come to realize in my advanced age that what makes me most happy are shoes that come in taupe/nude and grey, and I like to buy multiple pairs of the same shoe in both colors. Also, after reflecting on my most worn shoes from 2017, I have realized that I tend to wear a lot of booties-open toed in the warmer months and close toed in the colder months. I am clearly a creature of habit. And if I’m not wearing my booties, I’m either in slip-on sneakers or slippers. That doesn’t mean I don’t love a nice heel or pump, but I definitely have a shoe uniform!

Keeping with the “uniform” theme, I’d say my go-to outfit is a t-shirt and jeans, with some added layers when it’s cold. Check out some of my most worn outfits and I’ll think you’ll see a theme (and see a lot of the same shoes)!

This blazer is a must-have for your spring/summer wardrobe. It’s the perfect layering piece for warm weather.
Natori Underwire T-Shirt BrasI need to also mention the most worn item of clothing from 2017 that you’ll never see: my bra. I now own 4-5 . A well-fitted bra makes all the difference in how your clothes fit, and how you feel. If you live anywhere near a Nordstrom, I highly recommend going to their Lingerie department and getting properly measured. It’s a free service and for me, it was a big eye-opener!
