The Best Things I Added to My Wardrobe in 2016

Ok you guys. I planned on getting this on the blog in January... and here we are in March! Life just always has a way of happening, amIright? Regardless, here I am and I'm excited to recap my greatest wardrobe hits from last year (of course, like everyone I purchased a few disappointments as well, but I'll save that for another post).

Since most of these were purchased resale (shoutout: Clothes Mentor), I linked some similar looks below each item mentioned.

A Little Lace Dress I actually purchased this dress for my dad's wedding in May, but didn't end up rocking it until JT's birthday party in September. Confession: I am in love. The paisley pattern and see-through midi-skirt give a simple silhouette the perfect amount of edge. Bonus: it is so comfortable. (Similar: Nordstrom, PrettyLittleThing, Lulu's)

All of the Chokers I am beating a dead horse by mentioning this one, but if you have kept up with my blog, you know I am beyond obsessed. And if you work with me you know I wear the same black one at least once a week! #NoShame (Similar: Nordstrom, Zara, Forever 21

An Asymmetrical Stunner I purchased this dress for a work event, and almost didn't wear it, because it's a half size too small around my thighs (my thighs are my post-pregnancy problem area; a big adjustment for someone who's never had thighs before, LOL). But I'm so glad I rocked it, the metallic gray paired with the tiered neckline was a beautiful combination and my insecurities were assuaged after I got several compliments. (Other eye-catching asymmetric looks, dress; Nordstrom, crop top: Zara, layered party skirt: Forever 21)

Plaid Perfection I purchased a simple plaid, a-line dress to wear to Christmas gatherings this year, and my little 90s-inspired heart was content. (I also ended up buying JT a matching pull-over sweater. We looked beyond dorky and i'm sure JT will make fun of these pictures as soon as he is able, but guess what? I loved every minute of it!). (More perfect plaid looks: Forever 21, Eddie Bauer)
