Best 2012 Purchases by Rebecca

Gap jacket (similar); J.Crew top (similar); AG Stevie jeans; Superga sneakers; Jess LC tote

Did you all have a wonderful holiday? I sure did. So with 2013 well underway, I wanted to share with you my favorite purchase of 2012 because that's so much more interesting than sharing my resolutions...which is to hug more because I am not usually a hug instigator, BUT I want to be 'cause huggers are the best.

So back to the purchases.. Here's how it all went down:
  • In March, I bought this jacket before our trip to New York because I needed a light jacket. I then proceeded to wear it in my sleep because it is the best.
  • In May, I bought this t-shirt because I have a serious lack of plain tees, and I wore this guy with everything from fancy skirts to my favorite green jeans (which didn't make the list because I bought those in 2011).
  • In June, I bought these white sneakers because they screamed summer and are so dang comfortable.
  • And in September, I bought these jeans for my birthday because I was sick and tired of uncomfortable jeans. So I splurged. And then I proceeded to throw all of my other blue jeans away. They just looked so sad and miserable hanging in my closet never to be worn again. I did them a favor and found them a new home.

Isn't it sad that all of my favorite purchases last year were so incredibly boring? Sure makes for one comfy outfit though!

Hugs to you all!! (Do virtual hugs count?)


  1. I bought a similar jacket last year and I wear it constantly too!

  2. 2012 was a great shopping year for you! The pieces are beautifully simple, fit well, and are versatile. :)

  3. Looks really good!
    I love those shoes but they become dirty all the time...

  4. Looks like great closet staples to me! I have an unhealthy amount of plain vnecks in my drawer, especially grey. Can't go wrong with staples that you can jazz up with accessories. :)
