A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post called “Hands down, the 10 best purchases of the year,” and let me tell you, it wasn’t easy to narrow it down to 10! But I did, and while I’m satisfied with the selections, I’ve found even more really good things worth sharing. It reminds me of the How I Built This podcast when Glossier founder Emily Weiss revealed that she’d learn about different beauty products, and feel it was her “civic duty” to share them with the world. That’s exactly how I feel about so many of the things I discover during this fun little journey we’re on together!
Today’s post is about favorite purchases of 2020. This time, I’m including some home favorites as well, including the John Derian book I used to decorate my walls and a bench I scored from Target. Keep reading for the latest style boards, and hopefully you’ll find a thing or two you want to try 🙂
P.S. We’ve had a little explosion of growth lately, so if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish, just subscribe here and never miss a post! Also, my daughter Emily has been hard at work creating blog posts I think you’ll like. We added Em’s Picks to the website, you can check it out here.
Favorite clothing and accessory purchases
— This Jimmy Choo boot has been my go-to for the last several months
—These sunglasses are my signature, and the initial necklace gets lots of compliments
— I tend to wear the same jewelry pieces over and over and after ten years, I STILL love this Michele watch if you can believe it
— Rag & Bone is a favorite brand, and this Slade blazer is so good. It’s cozy like a sweater and polished like a blazer – perfect for our casual lifestyles
Favorite home décor purchases
— Everyone always asks about the topiaries I have on my dining table! These are very similar, and if you mix in some fresh flowers, no one notices they aren’t real 😉 I also have these placemats on the same table, and they add a nice texture to casual plates and even fancier china
— I scored this bench from Target last spring when I was supposed to be buying toilet paper lol
— These cashmere blankets are a splurge, but they add a really nice splash of color
— The Anthropologie mirror was the first thing I added to my newly renovated Instagram office last year
— Can’t say enough about this makeup organizer. It’s so nice having everything tidy, and it holds a lot too
— The Italy book will make you feel like you’re on the Amalfi coast
— I used the Dash egg cooker again today. For $20, you’ll wonder how you lived without it
— I love having jars around the house and always buy them in pairs. This one by Pottery Barn is large and makes a statement. I also like mixing these remote controlled candles among regular candles. You really can’t tell they aren’t real when they’re up on a mantle.
— This fluffy rug is a favorite, I’ve moved it around from room to room and it looks good everywhere!
