    My Favorite Purchases of 2017

    Starting the blog back in July of 2017 has been one of my favorite memories.  Over the last six months, I have shared some of my favorite outfits and purchases with you all.  It has been a while since I have shared my monthly favorites, so for January, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite purchases of 2017. I get the most compliments on this sweater.  I am obsessed with the sleeves.  They are such a fun statement!  This color is currently sold out, but it comes in five other cute colors!  Also, I wear these jeans ALL THE TIME.
