10 Favorite Things 2016

Every year, my friend Sarah hosts a virtual “Favorite Things” party with some of her blogging besties and this year I’m joining in!  I kept my list to my very favorite Top 10 things that I love and use on a regular basis.  It didn’t take me long to come up with my faves and I’m curious if any of these top your list of faves too!



























Yosi Samra Leopard Ballet Flats 
Chance Parfume Spray
Wedge Booties
Nail Polish – Shhh, It’s Top Secret  & Nail Polish – Alpine Snow White
Sugar Lip Treatment
Reversible Tote
Bootcut Jeans
Cozy Throw
Cozy Soft Pants
Strapless Bra

#1 Yosi Samra Leopard Ballet Flats 
Foldable, packable and so darned cute!  They come in lots of styles and are comfy enough for walking around in all day.  As much as a love my heels and wedges, sometimes they just aren’t practical for long work days or running around with kids.  I much prefer this brand to Tieks, which I found to be rather stiff and narrow.  Yosi Samra only comes in whole sizes, so size up if you’re between sizes.

#2  Chance Parfume Spray
Perfume is such a personal preference, but this is the one I swear by and it smells amazing.  I don’t wear it everyday, but when I do, I always get compliments.
 #3 Wedge Booties
Again, if comfort is key for you, these stylish but ultra comfy wedge booties have your name written all over them.  The website says these booties have “Elastic-Gore Inset” which must mean some kind of magic elves that massage your feet while you’re wearing these shoes.  They’re that good as far as wedge booties go.  Bonus, they also come in black and are currently 40% off!
These are my winter go to polishes.  The Top Secret is a deep brown that looks like soft black on and the White is the pretties fresh white that looks great holding your red starbucks cup or with your white sweaters!
#5 Sugar Lip Treatment
This lightly tinted lip moisturizer is amazing!  Not only does is smell nice, but it feels good on your lips too.  It’s my go-to when I don’t feel like wearing regular lipstick, but still want a hint of natural color.
#6 Reversible Tote
If you’ve read my blog for long, you know I’m crazy about this tote.  It’s faux leather, great quality, not too big and not too small and goes with everything.

#7 Bootcut Jeans
These jeans are a new fave and I swear they add 10 inches to your legs.  I’m only 5’1 and feel much taller in these, which is no easy feat.  They are comfy with a bit of stretch, but size down because they run big.  I’m in 0P.  I have them in two washes (lighter in the first pic and darker in the second).

#8 Cozy Throw
Especially when the time changes and it gets dark right after dinner, we’re all ready to cozy up on the couch with this throw blanket.  I really should buy more now that it’s 40% off so we can stop fighting over it!
#9 Cozy Soft Pants
I bet these are the most-worn thing in my closet.  I found the maternity version when I was pregnant with Jordan and literally lived in them.  Now I have the regular pair and I still live in them!  So super soft and the waistband is nice and wide.  You will love these!
Last but not least, hands down, the.best. strapless bra I’ve ever tried!  It stays put and actually keeps the girls up.  With this bra, your wardrobe options open up considerably! I’ve had mine for several years now and it’s still going strong.  I wash it in the regular washing machine and if I remember I’ll take it out and lay it flat to dry, but it’s usually 50/50 that I remember.  This is the bra I wear with anything I don’t want the possibility of straps showing, especially strapless tops and dresses.  You’ll really thank me on this one!
That was fun sharing these FAVORITE THINGS with you!  You’ll definitely want to check out more below:

    Those cozy pants are going in my cart now. At 4'10" I struggle to find comfy pants that aren't two feet too long. Those look like a good length on you.

    "Elastic gore inset" is that piece of stretchy fabric behind the buckle on the outside of the shoe, helps the shoe to move with you vs having the leather go all the way around. Great roundup! I would really like to try Yosi Samra flats one day!

    I really want to try white nail polish this season. I've never tried because I'm afraid my hands will look super dark, but after reading your post, it's time to embrace that!
