The beginning of the year is a good time for reflection… so I thought I would start my first post of 2018 with a look back at my five favourite purchases from 2017! Unsurprisingly, most of these are classic wardrobe staples that will, no doubt, stay with me through all of 2018 and hopefully many more seasons to come.
Leather Jacket – This was a Zara find and I couldn’t be anymore in love with it! The price point was just too good to resist and I am all about that quilted sleeve detailing! Hands down my favourite purchase from 2017 and the amount of times I have worn it definitely reflects that! FYI a leather jacket would have to be my number one wardrobe staple and something EVERY wardrobe should have!!
SHOP LEATHER JACKETS:
Black Blazer: Up until I purchased this blazer, early on in 2017, I had yet to find the perfect black blazer. This was a random sale find at HM while I was holidaying in Kuala Lumpur… Talk about meant to be! I have not stopped wearing it since and love how versatile it is in my wardrobe.
SHOP BLACK BLAZERS:
Gingham Skirt: Gingham has been my favourite trend of 2017. I just can’t get enough! I actually purchased this skirt in Winter but couldn’t wait until it got warmer to wear it so ended up with a lot of Winter looks featuring this baby.. and of course it has been my number one Summer go-to too!
SHOP GINGHAM SKIRTS:
Oversized Denim Jacket: This jacket was gifted to me mid way through the year, and at first I wasn’t so sure about it, until I started styling it with anything and everything and finding that it worked so well! Now it is my favourite denim jacket and my go-to whenever I need to throw on a jacket. The extreme rips give it an edge and the oversized fit is so comfy and easy to wear!
SHOP DENIM JACKETS:
High Waisted Denim Jeans: It took me a long while to find a super high-waisted pair of jeans in blue, but when I finally found them.. I never took them off! The ultra high waist makes these a very flattering style and they are quite stretchy, which means they are comfy too… bonus! Of course I couldn’t have a pair of jeans without rips and these ‘knee windows’ add an extra level of cool to this style!
SHOP HIGH WAISTED JEANS:
As you can see, most of my favourites from 2017 are classic pieces and items that I know will last me for many seasons to come, which is exactly why my wardrobe tends to be filled with these kinds of pieces. Gone are the days when impulse purchases flooded my wardrobe, nowadays I like to consider each piece carefully before making a purchase, and ensuring it will be versatile and something that can be worn again and again!
