Best Purchases of 2018: A Recap

AirPods

You can read my full blog post on my AirPod purchase, but these were hands down my best buy of 2018; they are amazing.

Backpack

I also did a blog post on my Lululemon backpack, but this was another amazing purchase of 2018. I picked it up soon after the new year and use it religiously. It’s great for work, going to the gym, and for travel. This year I traveled a decent amount and my Lulu backpack was always with me.

Here are some great backpacks if you are on the go.

Longchamp Traveler

I’ve wanted a Longchamp travel bag for a couple of years now and finally got my hands on a Le Pilage this fall. It is a perfect size and fits so much, but isn’t too big or difficult to carry. There is also a zipper in the middle that makes the bag larger if you need more space. I am obsessed with my traveler and can’t wait to use it in the future!

Vans

2018 was definitely the year of sneakers. My commute to work involves a decent amount of walking, so I often found myself choosing to wear sneakers over a fancier shoe. I bought a pair last winter and have worn them every season. Once you break them in, they are comfortable and extremely durable. I wear mine at least twice a week and they barely look worn at all. I have the classic black and white vans but have been itching to get another pair.

Black Cropped Jeans

Madewell is my go-to place to find jeans and this fall I snagged a pair of cropped frayed ones. I typically stick with skinny jeans, but was feeling adventurous and bought the Cali Demi Boot Cut. They are the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever worn. They are pretty high waisted, stretchy, and super flattering. I love pairing mine with booties and a blouse half tucked in.

Hoops

My last favorite purchase of 2018 was my gold hoop earrings. I used to hate hoops, I thought they were trashy and always stuck to simple earrings like pearls. My main feeling about earrings is that they can’t be too heavy. I don’t want them to pull on my ears which is why I stuck to studs for so long. I also have pretty sensitive ears, so many earrings bother them. Lately, though, I can’t get enough of my hoops. My favorites are from Madewell. They are dainty, simple, and go with just about everything. All of my hoops are incredibly comfortable to wear and don’t bother my ears at all.

Here are some of my favorite hoops from Madewell:
