the best of 2022!

 Happy New Year friends! It's been great to take an extended break here on the blog for the holidays but now I am rejuvenated and ready to jump back into posting here and all that 2023 has to offer! It's going to be a good year, I can feel it! We have some big changes and transitions coming up for our family this year and I'm excited for all the possibility in the New Year. 

Today I'm rounding up alllllll the favorites from the previous year... from the most popular Amazon items I've featured to my favorite denim for the year, to your favorites (the bestsellers!) and finally some of my top picks for athleisure from the past year (which was a #1 reader request).

If you are looking to start the new year with adding some really great basics to your shopping cart, this will be a great post for inspiration. Since all of these are tried and true and vetted favorites!

(above) The best of Amazon... These were the top sellers from Amazon for 2022. You all LOVED these awesome finds and so do I! I'm SUPER picky when it comes to Amazon finds. So consider these the BEST of the BEST. I promise!
simple t-shirt (I love these in black and white, they run small, size up!), coin necklace (this is perfectly oversized like many designer options, but a great price!) cable knit sweater (slightly cropped, so I went up a size, 100% cotton!), button front top (I went with my usual size small, it runs slightly oversized, so chic!), racerback tank (these are a great staple and true to size), leggings (the hype is real, these are SO soft, wash great and are perfect for low impact or lounging, true to size), boxy beige sweater (100% cotton, perfectly draped, I went up a size for a roomier fit), stripe sweater (runs small, I went up a size for a roomier fit, it's a bestseller for 2 years now! It's SO good.)

(above) This round up features all the bestsellers from the year across multiple retailers. These were the items YOU all shopped the most. Since this list spans over an entire year, I had to sadly leave out items that are now sold out. So all these items are still stoppable for you.
black jeans (runs small, I go with my bigger size for this brand), cable knit sweater (true to size), leather loafers, distressed denim (runs small, I go with my bigger size for this brand), suede loafers, blue jeans (runs small, I go with my bigger size for this brand), Ugg boots, crossbody bag, white jeans (I go with my smaller size for this style), quilted jacket (runs big, I went down a size)


(above) Next up... let's chat denim! I'm in denim about 99% of the time and these were my favorite pairs from 2022. There is really something for everyone here, especially if you are looking to make the jump to newer styles from skinny jeans, all of these styles are super approachable.
