Hello My Beautiful Friends!
I cannot believe that January is over. I am sure for some of you it seemed to drag, but for me, the month was gone in a blink.
This year I am really trying to be aware of my purchases. I recently received my first Louis Vuitton (thank you Hubby), and it made me realize the importance of quality over quantity. Add in the fact that I recently “Marie-Kondo’d” my closet and I just no longer want excess. I think that it is very easy to get caught up in wanting more “stuff” but the reality is that we all need to simplify our lives. To keep myself more accountable, I am going to start sharing all of my favorite purchases from the month with you. I think that it will really help to keep me more aware of what I am buying, plus it will be a way to share all of my awesome finds with you. I recently did a poll over on my Instagram in my Instastories and that was something that received almost 100% votes for wanting to see on my blog. I know that I personally enjoy those kind of posts so I hope you do as well.
So without further ado, I bring you my January Favorites!
As you can tell from the photos, these are not perfectly style outfit pictures. These are pictures that were taken on my phone as I wore them. I tried to pick pieces that I am using in my wardrobe and not just styling for a post. I feel like that makes these favorites real and authentic and I hope you will consider adding them to your closet.
Goodnight Macaroon Boots & Free People Turtleneck Bodysuit
I just happened to wear these two items together one day so I figured that it was good way to share their versatility. I have wanted these boots from Goodnight Macaroon for so long and when they were having a 30% off sale, I finally broke down and bought them. I have to tell you that they are worth every penny and I am so glad that I finally was able to add them to my wardrobe. The fit was exactly what I have been looking for and the colors goes with everything. The boots do not slouch fall down and stay fitted to your calves. They have a great heel height and I was able to wear them all day in the classroom without any problems. I would recommend sizing up one size.
The turtleneck bodysuit was something that I had seen multiple people share and I am always looking for good layering pieces. I love the fact that this is a bodysuit because it stays tucked into my pants. The lace detail is so pretty and looks great under dresses, with overalls, or with sweaters. I ordered my normal size and it fits fine but if it you want it to fit tight, I would recommend sizing down one size.
Snakeskin has become a huge trend recently and I have to say that I am not mad about that all. When I saw my friend Riley of Yes, Please Daily post these boots, I knew I had to have them. If you have not already guessed, I am definitely a shoe girl so I am constantly looking for fun pairs to add to my wardrobe. This pair did not disappoint and I have loved styling them. The heel is a great height and this was another pair that I was able to wear all day in the classroom without any problems. The fun print was also a big hit with my students. In this pair of boots I ordered my normal size and they fit great!
This month I have also been loving my skirt extender from Peekaboo Chic. This is the Classy vs. Sassy Slip Dress Extender and it has serious been a life saver. So man of my cute dresses are not long enough to wear to work and that can be disappointing. I love this slip because it adds an extra layer to my dresses, giving them a little extra length, so they are more appropriate for my workplace. I also got one in black so that I would be able to match all of my dresses. If you are a teacher, or really anyone who is looking for a way to add some modesty to some of your skirts or dresses, I strongly encourage you to check out all that they have available.
My final favorite of this month would definitely have to be the Besse Bag from LOÉIL. This beauty of a bag is clear with clear, plastic handles. I love this bag because I am able to change it so much by adding a clutch to the inside. In this outfit, I inserted one of my clutches from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch this Subscription and it gave both bags a completely new look. I feel like together, they have class and elegance, with a touch a whimsy. I was inspired to get this bag by my friend Kelsey of Pardon My French. She uses this bag to hold her Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch and it looks so chic. I know this will be a piece that I will continue to use for years and will be able to use it with so many different outfits and clutches.
I hope that you enjoyed these favorites as much as I did in January. They will all become staples in my wardrobe so I am sure that you will see them again. Let me know what your favorites were in January! I always love to hear from you!
