Hi! I’m on a plane and headed to Kentucky for my best friend’s wedding this weekend! It’s on New Years Eve and so many of my best friends and family are going to be there. I’M SO EXCITED.

[Stay tuned for IG story overload]

I had the recommendation from one of you guys  (love when you send me ideas!) to post about my most worn items and favorite purchases of 2017. I thought that was such a good idea and a helpful way to narrow it down for you guys.


My Most Worn Items + Favorite Purchases of 2017

Jeans: There are two pairs of jeans I wear with everything. The two pairs below: Topshop Jamie Dark Blue Jeans and these Topshop Joni jeans.  They’re the best petite jeans out there but and also come in regular sizing.

Canada Goose Parka: If you live somewhere with really cold winters, this is a must. It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I’m wearing XXS – this this is also the absolute best parka option for petite women. It has adjustable cords on the inside and you can pull it as tight as you want. I’ll be wearing this for years!

Adidas Sneakers (new!): I’m usually a Nike girl, but my photographer wears these all the time when we shoot so I copied her and bought them (lol thanks @Aesthetiica).

White Faux Fur Peacoat: Great to wear over top of something a little more fancy (winter dresses & skirts). This is actually from two years ago, but I’ve worn it so many times this winter. I got a bunch of DM’s about this when I posted it on IG. I’m wearing an XS and it’s only $67 on sale right now.

UGG wedges: I wear these every, single, day. Inside the house as slippers and outside the house as an extra warm boot to brave the cold in. I love the little wedge on the heel – it makes them really cute with jeans!

Cashmere Burberry Scarf (new! wearing above): Mom got me this for Christmas and I love it so much! I’ve been wearing a ton of black lately and it’s the perfect way to add some color (and warmth) to an outfit. We got Nani this silk Burberry scarf for Christmas which is also beautiful and works for all seasons.

Frye Booties (wearing in pic above):I found these when I was shopping in New York a few months ago and instantly fell in love. They’re so chic. Wearing them with all my winter outfits lately.

Rebecca Minkoff Black Crossbody Bag: The all black goes with everything and fits phone, wallet, keys, mini brush, lipsticks, etc.

Stuart Weitzman Hiline Boots: Whenever it’s too cold and I can’t figure out what to wear – I put something black on with these over-the-knee boots. They dress any outfit up and I love how they look over top of jeans. A splurge, but I’ll be wearing them for years.

Spanx faux leather leggings: Wearing these in this pic – I love these for when I want to get semi-dressed up but don’t want to wear jeans.

Carson Heels: I have these in black and nude and they’re my go-to heel for pretty much any outfit.

Cuyana Overnight Bag (in picture above): I always get questions about this. It’s an overnight/travel bag that I always use to keep my computer (and other things) in when I travel. I’ll usually bring my AWAY ‘bigger carry-on’ and this with me when I fly.

Every Day Jewelry: I wear these two bracelets and rings every single day.

    Hey Olivia! Love your blog and style! However a lot of the stuff you wear seems to be a few hundred out of my price range especially having just moved from the suburbs after college to an apartment in Lincoln park off a sad but making it work first job salary. Do you think you’d be able to post about the cheaper/more affordable dups of your stuff? Ya know like balling on a budget wanna look great but don’t quite have the funds yet? Lol

    I’ve got the Spanx faux leather leggings in the moto style and absolutely LOVE them, got them a month or so ago but they’re already a pair of my most worn. Just like you said, they’re the perfect pair of leggings for when you want to feel a little dressed up. 🙂 Curious to try their velvet leggings too.
