Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope everyone is having a good week, and getting back into the swing of things after the holidays! I’ll admit, I am still struggling to get back to reality, but I’m trying my best 😉 While I’m reflecting on 2017, yesterday I shared YOUR top 10 favorite posts on G&G, I thought I would share my favorite purchases of 2017! Spoiler alert, a lot of accessories are included, and most items are still in stock!

I’d love to know your favorite purchases of 2017!

The BEST Faux Leather Leggings

Commando Leggings // Featured Here, Here, Here

Hands down, these babies are the BEST faux leather leggings I’ve ever tried. For some odd reason I haven’t gotten around to shooting them for a full on blog post, but I am wearing them weekly behind the scenes. They’re perfect in every way:: high waisted, enough stretch, they don’t get baggy, etc. I am seriously tempted to buy a back up pair.

Best Boyfriend Jeans / Affordable Printed Jacket

Amazon Jacket: It’s $8!! // Featured Here, Here, Here

The best $8 you’ll ever spend. No, it’s not the best quality, but it is absolutely worth the $8. I have worn this countless times, dressed up & down, and I cannot wait for it to warm back up so I can wear it again! The colors are amazing, and I cannot recommend this piece enough. Btw, size up as there is no give in the fabric.

Floral Pleated Midi Skirt / Fall Work Wear Ideas similar Floral Pleated Skirt // Featured Here, Here, Here

This was a piece I kept seeing in my local Anthro store, and finally decided to pick up. I am so glad I did because in the month or so I had it before it got too cold to wear, I wore is at least 4-5 times. That’s saying a lot for me y’all. I can’t wait to style it again this spring with a white tee!

Abercrombie & Fitch Camo Tee // Featured Here, Here

The camo trend is here in full force & I couldn’t get enough of it in 2017. This tee was one of my favorite budget friendly buys of last year. I think it was made for sequins, but I have worn it on it’s own, layered under sweaters, cardigans, etc!

Stella & Dot Diamond Initial Necklace // Featured Here, Here, Here

I loveee a good dainty necklace, and this one was my favorite all year long! It pairs so well with any outfit or necklace, and I rarely take it off. Plus, it adds the perfect little sparkle to any look.

Pink Palm Print Dress / Steve Madden Wedges

Gucci Mini Marmont Crossbody // Featured Here, Here, Here

Okay y’all, so I am not one to normally pull the trigger on a designer bag. I typically find them frivolous, but this one I couldn’t resist. So when Tyler offered to treat me to it for my birthday it was hard to say no. The gold & white are my absolutely favorite, and I have worn it throughout winter.

Ruffle Sweater Tank / White Jeans

White Abercrombie & Fitch Jeans // Featured Here, Here, Here

Why are good white jeans so hard to find? I refuse to pay a fortune for jeans, and these under $100 (currently on sale for under $50) pair are perfection! I wore the heck out of them all year long!

Ann Taylor Floral Pants / Summer Work Wear

Tassel Earrings: ON SALE! // Featured Here, HereHere, Here

Y’all know I love a good statement earring! This tassel earring took the cake last year. I love them so much I bought them in two colors! They’re currently on super sale & I’m temped to pick up the multicolor pair. Is that too much?!

Spring Outfit Inspiration // Ft. BlankNYC Suede Jacket, Free People Cami, Vince Camuto Lace Up Sandals, Clare V. Leopard Clutch

BlankNYC Suede Jacket // Featured Here, Here, Here

I resisted buying this jacket for all of 2016. You couldn’t get on Instagram without seeing a blogger styling this jacket. Last spring I was on the hunt for a good jacket, so I gave in. I am SO glad that I did y’all. This jacket is really something you can wear SO many different ways, and I’ve done just that!

Mini Henri Bendel Rivington Tote c/o // Featured Here, Here, Here

This gifted bag was probably my favorite gifted piece I received last year. It’s the BEST size for everyday wear, traveling, etc. I styled it so many different ways last year & this year will be no different.

Casual Summer Style / Embroidered Denim Shorts

The perfect layering piece y’all! It’s my go to when traveling, when I need a light layer, to dress down something, etc.

White Lace Blouse / Spring Outfit Idea

White Lace Top // Featured Here, HereHere

I had a thing for white tops earlier this year, but this one took the cake. The sleeve & hem detailing is so freaking cute! I was so excited when I realized it was still in stock. I’ll definitely be wearing this top come spring.

Fall Floral Dress / Suede Jacket / How to wear mules

Grey Mules // Featured Here, Here, Here

I hadn’t hopped onto the mule trend until I picked these up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I was shocked how much wear I got out of them. They were the perfect summer to fall to winter shoe!

Spring Style via Glitter & Gingham // Hermes Bracelet, Camo Jacket

Hermes Clic Clac Cuff // Featured Here, Here, Here

This was definitely a treat yo self kind of purchase. We were in Vegas last February, and stumbled into an Hermes store for the heck of it. The color combo sold me y’all. I love pairing this cuff with my two favorite David Yurman bracelets!

Velvet Blazer / Casual Holiday Outfit Inspiration

I’ve never been one to splurge on sunglasses, but I picked these up last spring and I have definitely gotten my money’s worth! They’re such a different style, and the quality is spot on!
