Favorites of 2015

It’s almost the year end, so before it’s too late, I decided to put together my favorites of 2015. As I was writing this post, I realized that many of my picks were from the second half of the year. But I guess that makes sense, as I was pregnant for the first eight months of 2015…and sad to say, I would happy to never see most of my maternity items ever again (although one of the favorite items I wore, this Free People embroidered maxi, is now 65% off). Here we go!


1. Chanel Spring 2015 jacket . This is one of my favorite jacket purchases ever. I was hesitant at first since I thought it was more of a business style (it was also sold as a suit and skirt set). However, the zipper makes it a little younger I feel…and the slightly cropped sleeves. The material is classic Chanel, but isn’t too delicate of a tweed weave (some of the Lesage fabrics, as gorgeous as they are, look like they might fall apart if you just sneeze close to them). And, it’s quite comfortable. Chanel ready to wear is so expensive that I always am a little apprehensive…but I’m really happy with this one.

2. Free People lace trim tunic. Doesn’t look like much, but so easy to layer over leggings and to pair with a little cardigan. I will say that I only wear this as a top. I do not wear this as a dress under any circumstances…I am not shaped like a Hadid sister (unfortunately). It’s a little bit more feminine than the oversized shirts I’ve been wearing mostly over leggings, yet just as comfortable. It’s one of those items that doesn’t stand out immediately in the closet, but I’ll always find myself wearing at least once per week. Continue Reading
