And just like that, 2017 is just a few days away! I always feel like after the New Year means getting back down to business. After spending the majority of December in my sweats and favorite Christmas pajamas I feel like my wardrobe is in need of a refresher. Here are 5 pieces every wardrobe needs for the new year – all of which are on sale right now.

1. A Sweater You’ll Wear Everything. By amount the end of November I start feeling like I’ve cycled through most of my knits and sweaters a time or two. I love this cable knit sweater (on sale under $50) – the detailing is perfect for an office look or with your favorite boyfriend jeans and booties.

2. An Addition (or 2) to Your Shoe Collection. When you are wearing boots 7 days a week during the dead of winter (thank you Utah snow! but really because I love boot season 😉 can you ever really have enough options? I love this one – it’s a great heel height you can wear anywhere and it’s at a great price point right now under $100 (on sale). Also saw this amazing pair (40% off) and it was in my cart 2 seconds later – obsessed with the chunky heel and how pretty is the burgundy suede?

3. Fresh Workout Gear. Tis the season of New Year resolutions! Being healthier is a constant among most people’s resolutions and what’s better motivator than fresh workout wear? I love this graphic logo tank and colorblocked windbreaker (a must for those outdoor activities). I’m a sucker for Nike and there are so many great pieces on sale at Nordstrom right now – also love these sneakers.

4. Denim, Denim and More Denim. I always stock up on denim whenever it’s on sale. Topshop is one of my favorites for budget denim – this pair and this one are both under $50. I can’t get enough of the distressing and high-waisted combo right now.

5. An Oversized Sweatshirt. Ok I will never say no to cozy, oversized sweatshirts. I always size up for a baggier fit and the Nike ones are always so cozy that I’m always tempted to get one in every color haha. Love this one!

The Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale has tons of good finds up to 50% off through January 2nd but sizes always sell out really quick so it’s always a great time to buy. And as always it’s free shipping and returns so you can try out a few different sizes or pieces if you can’t make it in-store. You can find more of my favorites from the sale below.

This was the year of travel! It was our New Year’s resolution this year to see more and experience more as a family and we did it! Now I’m just as excited to be home and enjoying the Holidays in my cozy sweats with a nice cup of hot chocolate. We still have a couple weekend getaways this month, and it seems like with the Holidays everyone is traveling! I wanted to share some of my travel style essentials:

  1. Layers – You rarely get to control the A/C or heat while you are traveling with others, whether it’s the plane or a road-trip, so layers are the best way to travel. I swear I’m always all over the board – it goes from freezing to hot and stuffy in just a matter of minutes, especially on planes. I always bring a cozy sweatshirt that’s easy to throw around my waist when I get too warm.
  2. Good  Shoes – I have limited luggage space as it is, but especially during this season I’m packing lots of layers and bulky jackets for both me and the kids. So when it comes to travel shoes, I always try to pick something that works for the plane/car ride and my destination once I arrive so I can make the most of the shoes I’m packing. I love this SOREL pair (also obsessed with this curry color – how cute are the laces! and this white one!!). The black is a classic style that you can wear with anything and they have a sneaker effect that makes them so comfortable so I can keep up with B while he’s running around the airport. 😉
  3. Cute travel luggage – Packing (and unpacking now that I think of it) is such a headache, and I know it’s silly but pretty luggage really does make a difference! It makes packing just a little bit less painful so you can start your trip on the right foot.

What are some of your destinations this season? I’m always looking for new spots to add to my bucket list. You can find more great boot options for traveling below.
