Top Ten Favorite Items from 2021:
1. Vuori Peformance Jogger:
Vuori that both my husband and I swear by. We’ve both had some of their tops and shorts, but last year all we heard was how comfortable their joggers were. So, I finally invested in their performance joggers and oh my goodness, they are insanely comfortable! They are most definitely my most comfortable joggers, and possibly the most comfortable pants I own. They fit really well and wash really well, too! I recommend them for both women and men.
2. Agolde “Parker Long” jean shorts:
Agolde is one of my favorite brands for jean shorts. I’ve had their Parker shorts for several summers now and love those; they get more comfortable with each wear! Then this summer I discovered their Parker Long short and love them just as much as my original pair. What I like about the Parker Long short is that as a mother, they are a bit more appropriate when it comes to length and rips. I highly recommend these!
3. The “Ellie” Nap Dress:
I waited a long time to purchase this dress because I didn’t know if it would be worth the cost. Y’all, it’s worth it. This is the most comfortable day dress. I wore mine so much and ended up buying it in several other colors/patterns, too! It’s a really easy dress to wear in the summer and can be styled casually or nice enough for date night! I highly recommend this dress. And if you end up purchasing the white color, I recommend wearing this slip skirt with it.
4. Toiletry Travel Bag:
This toiletry bag is incredible, y’all! I have used it every single time we traveled since purchasing it last spring. The best part about this hanging toiletry bag is that the compartments are large enough to hold full-sized products.
5. Tory Burch Slide Sandal and the “Eleanor Mule”:
Tory Burch is one of those brands that continually pumps out quality products. I have been wearing Tory Burch sandals and shoes for years and have always been happy. This summer they came out with the Slide Sandal and not only loved the new design, but the color, too! I tried them on in-store and when I realized how comfortable they were, I bought them on the spot. I wore them always every day this past summer and still slide them on to run errands even in the colder months!
6. Janessa Leon “Sherman” hat:
My go-to summer hats have always been Brixton hats. I still wear them a lot! But, this past summer I saw this hat on another mom and couldn’t resist asking her where it was from. I love the way this hat fits, the color, and it’s very well-made.
7. Spanx Ponte Ankle Leggings:
I’ve owned the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings for several years and am a big fan – much like you I’m sure! This past year though I invested in their ponte ankle leggings. I love them because they’re thick enough to wear as pants and they don’t have the shimmer of the faux leather leggings. Naturally, they are also very flattering and slimming given that they are Spanx.
8. Amazon Wireless Bra:
I honestly never thought I’d want to wear a wireless bra during the day. Heck, I never thought I’d be able to even find a wireless bra supportive enough to wear in public. I found this one though and oh my word, it’s all I want to wear. It’s so comfortable and it’s actually very supportive! Trust me, once you wear this once, you’ll want to wear it daily!
9. Dime Beauty Co TBT Serum:
One of my goals this past year was to learn more and try more clean beauty brands. About halfway through the year I started using Dime Beauty Co. products. Not, almost half a year later, I am using their toners, eyelash boost, and night creams religiously. The one product that’s stood out more than any has been the TBT Serum. It’s an anti-aging serum and it has really helped to tighten my skin and reduce the appearance of my dark spots from melasma.
They were also king enough to give me a code to share with you guys, so if you want to try it, just use code: “AnnaC20” and you’ll get 20% off your order.
10. Everlane Short-Sleeve Crew Neck Bodysuit:
This short-sleeve bodysuit was one of my most worn tops in 2021. I got it in the spring, wore it all throughout the summer, and I’m still wearing it to layer with this winter. It fits true-to-size and is very comfortable. It’s also double lined in the front so it’s not see through at all.
