The 10 Favorite Items of 2019

It is so hard to believe that it's time to write the annual recap post for the blog favorites! So much happened this year that I am truly thankful for, including all of you being here! Thank you so much for your support and love for our family! I never in a million years thought that this dream would become a reality and you are such a huge part of it! I love y'all! 

So onto the favorite items of 2019! Most of them were from Amazon, which didn't surprise me! LOL I live on Prime! Also, a large part came from spring and summer looks which are my favorite pieces to share! So with out further adieu, here are the top selling items from 2019!

1. This $22 palm print kimono was hands down the most popular item purchased on my blog! I am wearing a size small. I wore it on our spring break cruise and at least once a week through out the summer! I love that it has arm holes and stays on easily! 
2. So many of us got this $22 off/on the shoulder jumpsuit! It fit me TTS and I am 5'10" for height reference. I am wearing a medium. It would be really cute belted and I have worn it with a jean jacket and sneakers for a more casual look.

3. This black one piece suit is next on the list and so incredibly flattering! Sometimes with a long torso, one pieces can be tough but this one is a winner! I am wearing a medium which is size 8/10 so a size up from my typical 4/6 size. It is $27 and worth every penny!

4. I wore this red floral maxi dress to New York city this summer and it looked so much more expensive than it is! It's only $35 and ships free with Amazon Prime! I wore the size 4 but wish I had gotten the 6 as the chest was a little tight. If you go between I would size up!
5. These gladiator studded sandals are SO comfortable and look so much like the designer versions. I wore my normal size. I love that you can dress them up or keep it casual! They are just $23.
6. The next favorite item is the bag that I probably carried the most this year. My ride or die Barrington Gifts St Anne tote bag! It is so roomy and has tons of room for all the mom essentials! Mine is basically like a Mary Poppins bag 24/7 and has held up SO well! I use this amazon prime tote bag organizer to help keep everything in its place inside it!
7. This pink striped high waisted bikini is SO cute and flattering! I love the super high waist and it comes in a bunch of colors. It is about $27 and ships free with Amazon Prime. I am wearing size 6. I think it fits TTS but if you go between I would size up.
8. This blue dress was one of my very favorites last spring! I wore it for an Easter egg hunt, church and just running around town! It is $29 and I wore the size 4/6. It is bump friendly as well! All of the other items that I am wearing in this picture are old except my monogram necklace. 
9. This striped romper is so cute and comfy! It is under $20 and ships free with prime. Plus it has a true button front making it nursing friendly. I am wearing a medium which is my normal size.
10. I still can't believe the quality of these $9 rattan earrings! They were my go to all summer and still look brand new! They also ship free with prime yay!

Gift Guide: Teachers

The next most requested gift guide by far this year was for teachers! We are all so thankful for our incredible teachers and knowing how to show that thanks can be tricky; especially when buying for several people. Over the years I have done a variety of things for our teachers. From gift cards to their favorite stores/restaurants to a little gift basket or a monogrammed item! 
{affiliate links are used in this post}

Some examples of past gifts that I have given include a cozy blanket and a gift card to Barnes and Noble for a teacher who loves to read, or a monogrammed cheese board and grocery store gift card for the entertainer, or this letter mug with a Starbucks gift card for a coffee lover.  I included a few fun ideas like a personalized lanyard, the BEST coffee mug that actually keeps coffee hot, tech gloves with AMAZING reviews (Under $15 + prime) and some affordable but chic jewelry.  I also love to include a note/card from the girls to their teacher and from Kris and I sharing our gratitude for them!

Gift Guide: Mother & Mother in Law

Good Morning! I woke up way before the rest of the crew today, so I am coffee in hand finishing up the most requested gift guide so far! Knowing what to buy for your mom or mother in law can be so tricky! Whether they have it all or don't want anything (in my mom's case!) it calls for some creativity. A lot of the gifts I included this year are sentimental and can include some personalization so ordering early is helpful.

I try to do a combination of a more thoughtful gift and then something from their favorite store or a monogrammed gift. An example is this last year I found these vintage books from one of my favorites Reefranaria and had them handstamped with all of Kris' parents grandchildren. They can be used as book ends or for decorating. Add a small gift to their favorite store and you are all set! 

This year on my gift guides all you have to do is click the image to be taken to the items! I hope this is helpful and more gift guides to come! :)
