Happy 2018 loves! I cannot believe how fast the end of 2017 went. The holidays were here and gone before I was even able to process them BUT I am so ready for a fresh start and to bring more content to the blog this year. Today I wanted to share a big Instagram round up of some of my favorite posts from the end of 2017 + some of my best and worst purchases from the year. I have a bit of a impulse spending problem (just a bit) and I love trendy things but sometimes that leads to bad purchases. Below are my best and worst purchases from 2017!

Best Purchases from 2017

Gucci Marmont Matelasse bag – This cross body is literally the perfect everyday bag! It fits everything you need and I love + alway will love this color!

Ray-Ban Icons black sunglasses – I think I wore these sunnies 350/365 days last year. I even bought them in the pink color recently and love those as well!

Levi 721 Skinny Jeans – These jeans are so comfortable and are really an everyday go to! I plan to order them in the darker color this year!

Saint Laurent Medium Shoulder Bag – Honestly I was unsure about this bag when I first got it but now I am carrying it just as much as my pink Gucci Marmont! I LOVE this bag + it goes with everything!

Leith Bell Sleeve Sweater – I have worn this pink sweater so many times since I got it (twice just this week). It is a really good staple sweater and it comes in a ton of colors + it’s soft and cozy.

Gucci Slides – These slides are definitely a splurge item but I’ve worn them so many times already they were worth the splurge. They were definetly a repeat for me in 2017 and I know I will still wear them in the years to come as they’re such a classic style!

All of my Zella leggings – I would be nothing without my collection of Zella leggings. They are affordable and I have a ton of colors from solid black to cute pink ones + I wear them weekly if not daily. I am so glad I found this brand last year!

Adidas Tubular Sneakers – These are definitely the most comfortable and cute sneakers I own. They feel like you’re walking on clouds and the pink color is so adorable! I might need them in the grey color as well.

Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan – This cardigan has come in handy so many times. It’s perfect for travel and to throw on for plane rides. It’s also comfy to throw on in the mornings while drinking coffee + It’s cute with lounge wear or even with a skirt and booties. I love it!

Leopard Golden Goose Sneakers – These were another splurge item but I just love a cool pair of shoes and these ones are so comfortable and cute! I recently got these at the end of 2017 but I know I will wear them all year long. I wore them today with a pair of jeans and a sweater. They go with everything!

Worst Purchases of 2017

Gucci GG Belt – I’m not saying I hate this belt or the style I think the look just got too trendy for my liking last year. I am hoping it will be a classic style that I can bring back out eventually but right now it’s not a favorite of mine. Onto of that – I ordered it too small where it’s hard to wear it around my waist which could be another reason it is on my worsts list.

Old Skool Vans – I think these sneakers also got a little too trendy for my liking and looking at these in my closet right now, I probably won’t wear them into 2018 but we will see!

Looking back at my picks from 2017 I honestly didn’t have a whole lot of bad purchases. I definitely thought I would have a lot more worsts but I guess thats a good thing! I hope you guys liked this post and I can’t wait to bring a ton of new content to the blog this year. Happy 2018 and chat soon!

 

Dress – Lush | Boots – Marc Fisher

Holy moly! How is it already December 15th and I have not put a post up in over 20 days? I think I know why. Our business FurryFreshness has had the busiest two months we’ve ever had, which is a great reason to be absent in my opinion! We also went to Cabo last week for Bryson’s brothers wedding which was amazing! We have been so busy these last few weeks I didn’t even have time to do any Christmas shopping and did all of our shopping online this week within a 24 hour period. Needless to say things have been nuts for us.

I am finally starting to feel caught up and ready for the holiday! We are leaving for Michigan next week to spend Christmas with my family and we cannot wait to see them + the snow! With the holidays quickly approaching I wanted to share some holiday dresses which are perfect for those last minute Christmas parties, events, church or even NYE parties. This gold one is from Lush and it is under $56 and so adorable with over the knee boots or heels! I’m sharing a few more of my favorite holiday dresses below.

As you can tell I am a little bit excited about Christmas this year. If you follow me on Instagram (@jenniferxlauren) then you know my tree has been up for over a week and I’m already talking about Christmas. That doesn’t mean I’m skipping over Thanksgiving because let me tell you I love my fair share of stuffing. I am just a huge Christmas junkie and I like to enjoy the season as long as possible.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and the holiday shopping season getting into gear I wanted to share my very first gift guide with you guys today. I was super excited about this one because I have always LOVED shopping at Target and this year I found so many good gift ideas for really great price points. I know there are tons of gift guides out there but I haven’t seen any for Target yet which is crazy because everyone loves Target. I’m sharing ideas for both girls and guys as well as group gifts for couples. You can shop the guide below by clicking on the X next to each item. I tried to get a good range of price points from low to high to fit all budgets + Target is doing free shipping and free returns through Christmas!

I hope this Target gift guide helps make your shopping easier! I know I love shopping at Target and honestly after doing this gift guide I’m 100% sure I could get all of my Christmas shopping done at Target. Everyone loves Target and they have a little bit of everything. Happy shopping + stay tuned for more gift guides coming soon!

This post is not sponsored or in a collaboration with Target at all. I just love Target and they have great gift options! 🙂

Dress – Topshop | Belt – Gucci | Boots – Marc Fisher | Bag – Gucci

There’s only one thing I love wearing more than sweaters this time of year and that’s sweater dresses. Sweater dresses are just as cozy as sweaters but they’re that much easier to style. Pair a sweater dress with some OTK boots like I did and you’re good to go! This look is perfect for wearing from day to night and even an upcoming holiday party. I opted to belt this dress to give it a more fitted look as I felt this style was more flattering that way. If you’re in need of a cute sweater dress for a holiday party or you just love sweater dresses – I’m sharing my favorite picks under $100 below.

As always thanks for stopping by and if you need help picking out a sweater dress send me an email to jennifer@jenniferxlauren.com. Have a great weekend! xx
