I hope you know that these β€œfavorites” posts are one of my favorite articles to share with you. I love looking through everything and figuring out what is worth the mention and what isn’t. I know it is barely January and this is the first one of 2023, but I’m already making a list of what to share next month!

Keep reading for some of favorite things recently. Everything is linked in the image and hyperlinked below. Enjoy!

  1. Round Amazon Sunglasses. I bought these on a whim and my goodness, I really like them. They are smooth, lightweight, and polarized. Did I mention they were under $20?! I have them in brown, but think I will get them in black too. The orange and the tortoise temple are really cool as well. Lots of colors to choose from!

  2. Senreve Mili Maestra. (c/o) You may have seen it back in November, but Olive now has a sweet little purse to match me! Its meant to be for adults to put in headphones or something small, but it works really well for a toddler or even a stuffed animal. I love it so much!

  3. Portable Phone Charger. I purchased this for my trip to New York and it was a lifesaver. It takes up minimal space, is lightweight, and you don’t need a cable to use it - it plugs directly into your phone. It’s 20% off right now too!

  4. Catbird Grand Mignon Ring. Nick gave me this for Christmas! I had been wanting a good stacker ring for my pointer finger and this is so dainty and classic. You can’t beat real gold for under $100.

  5. Catbird Twisted Stacker Ring. I stack this with the ring above and it is so pretty. Love!! I wear them on my right pointer finger in a size 8.

  6. Lunya Cozy Cotton Silk Henley and Ribbed Legging. (c/o) I am very into elevated, matching sets at this time in my life. They make me feel comfortable and put together at the same time. These are amazing and I love that I can wear them out with a jacket or even just wear the sweater with jeans. Use discount code LAURENMGIFT20 for $20 off. *hint hint, great discount code for valentine’s day!!

  7. V Neck Sweater Vest. This is a little bit out of my comfort zone because it is so trendy right now, but I really like it. Personally I’ve always loved houndstooth so it wasn’t too far out? Pair it with red this Valentine’s Day season for a fun pop.

  8. Travel Mirror. I bought this for my New York trip as well. You can use your phone to put on makeup, but a travel mirror is easier. I’ve used it since, but it was for sure helpful when I was sharing one bathroom with three other girls.

  9. Quince Shearling Slippers. I have been eyeing these for a couple of months now. My parents bought them for me for Christmas and boy are they comfy. I love Ugg slippers, but the last pair I got didn’t even last a year. The shearling wore away and the toe busted out. My old Uggs didn’t perform like that, so it couldn’t have been a fluke? Not sure, but these are half the price of Uggs and are real shearling!!

  10. Show Me Your Mumu Everhart Jumpsuit. I bought this at a sample sale, but would definitely pay full price for it. The jumpsuit is that good! I’m in a S, but almost wish I had M for torso length. It is casual but immediately feels elevated, which I love. Great for pretty much all seasons too.
