Last week, I shared a few of my favorite beauty finds from 2016 and this week, it’s all about fashion. By the looks of it, 2016 was definitely the year of shoes!

Suede OTK Boots {similar HERE}: I had these OTK boots on my list since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. Needless to say when I got them for my birthday in November, I was thrilled! The color, style and heel height are all perfect. I have a hard time saying no to suede boots and with this OTK style, it’s easy to pair with leggings or jeans. See them in a post HERE.  

Reversible Tote: Where to start with this tote. The color, the price {under $50!} or it’s multipurpose style? I love it all and have found myself carrying mine on a daily basis. It has become my “work bag” for car travel and what I carry my laptop, camera, cords and agenda in daily to work so I can work on ABM during my lunch hour. Although I love the fact that it’s reversible, I’ve never reversed mine — duh, it’s pink! Available in several colors, it doesn’t get much better than this tote. There is even a clutch on the inside! Seen on the blog HERE

Studded Sandals: I have swooned over the Valentino Rockstud Sandals for what seems like years, so when these designer dupes hit stores, I knew I had to have them. They were my go-to flat sandal this summer and with the sandal’s blush color, it can go with almost everything in your closet. While these sandals were a lot less than the designer version when I purchased them, they are even less now! I found them super marked down and still available HERE & even more colors HERE. See these designer dupes on the blog HERE.

Monogram Necklace: Oh, monograms. If you have been following along for awhile, you probably already know about my obsession with anything monogram. But if I had to pick one monogram piece that I wear the most, it would probably be THIS necklace. I wear the XXL size, but also have a variety sizes in other monogram necklaces {I know, I’m obsessed!}. See the monogram necklace on the blog HERE.

Pink Hunter Boots: While Hunter Boots are not a 2016 find, the pink color is. I love my red Hunter boots and wear them a lot in the fall, but I think that I will completely embrace the pink version this spring. Since I got them over the summer, I was only able to wear them a few times this fall. I’m definitely looking forward to all the spring outfit possibilities with these bright boots. See them styled on the blog HERE

Red Coat with Faux Fur Hood: Arguably my favorite purchase of 2016 {at the very least, my favorite purchase of the second half of the year} was this red coat. I hardly even took it off for the month of December — there were so many ways to style it during the Christmas and holiday season! I had loved the coat when I saw it at J.Crew a few years ago and could never justify the price. But, when I saw the style at J.Crew Factory, priced below $150 {when I bought it} I couldn’t pass up the deal!. At last check, a few sizes remain and it’s marked down to $134! See it styled on the blog HERE & HERE

Blush Bucket Bag: I fell in love with this blush monogram bucket bag last spring and carried it so much during the warmer months. Bucket bags are one of my favorite handbag styles — they are spacious and you can wear this particular bag either over your shoulder or crossbody. And you can’t beat the personalized touch of the monogram 🙂 See the bag style on the blog HERE & HERE.

Tassel Earrings: Tassels were a big part of my life in 2016, I bought several items {including a few pairs of earrings} that fit this trend. I love the rich blue hue of THESE long tassel earrings. I originally bought them to wear in the summer, but they act as the perfect vibrant pop of color for the winter months and as we transition into spring. See them styled on the blog HERE

Platform Espadrilles: Last, but certainly not least, are these platform espadrilles that I loved wearing all summer. Another designer dupe {see the designer and much more expensive version HERE} these are the epitome of cute and comfortable {yay for platform shoes!}. They were available in a few colors {I own the “orange suede”} and patterns earlier this year and are still available HERE. You can see how I styled these statement summer shoes HERE & HERE

Did you have a favorite fashion find of 2016? Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Pink Hunters…YES!!! I remember seeing so many of these on you Rachel, soooo cute!! Those monogram necklaces have been on my list for awhile now, I need to get one. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

  2. I just got my first pair of Hunter boots for Christmas and LOVE them! I got a matte black pair to have more options, but I'm definitely looking to add more colors to create a little collection; I love the glossy finish of the pink ones you have. I also have a pair of pink matte Coach boots, so I look forward to seeing how you style yours this spring for some inspiration! It's funny you mentioned the price on the J.Crew coat because that's why I haven't purchased it in black, which is the color I wanted. I also wanted the Lady Coat in some of the pretty bold colors, but when they all went on sale, my size was gone!!! It looks like they've been having sales on them off and on, so I'll have to keep my eye out. Thanks for sharing your faves of 2016, you have such beautiful taste, girlie!
