As we round out 2021, it’s fun to look back to see what you loved the most from what I shared this past year. And I have to say, y’all have good taste because I would have put every single item in this group too. Many of the items were from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I’m hoping they’ll bring back some of these items again. If some weren’t in stock, I did the best I could to link similar items.
For a look back at what made the most loved list in 2020, you can read that post HERE.
Wishing you and yours a very happy and healthy new year!
Your Most Loved Items from 2021
Here are your top 21 most loved items from 2021.
#21 Spanx Skinny Pants
If you’re in search of the best black workwear pants, these are it! They’re flattering, comfortable and don’t feel like workwear at all. I love the slit detail on the back of pant leg too.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a medium. If you’re between sizes, go up one.
#20 Fitted Long Sleeve Rib Dress
This rib mini dress is a great piece to wear on it’s own or under a cardigan or blazer. The material is very soft and stretchy, and would be great to wear to work or to casual events on the weekends.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a medium, but suggest sizing up one for a looser fit.
#19 Tiered Balloon Dress
This maxi dress could be worn throughout each season. Pair it with sandals in the spring and summer or booties in the fall and winter. It’s bump-friendly and comes in a few colors.
Sizing Info: Fits true to size and wearing a small.
#18 Enbliss Wireless Bra
This is my everyday bra that has zero wires and as comfy as can be. It provides great support and stays in great shape for a long time. Highly recommend!
#17 Circus Sandals
These Circus sandals (on the left) are a great look-for-less option to my beloved Tory Burch Miller sandal (on the right). The Circus sandals have been a top seller for a few years in a row now.
Sizing Info: I’d suggest sizing up a 1/2 size in either pair.
#16 Free People Active Shorts
If you’re looking for a great active pair of shorts, this Free People pair were a favorite of mine this year. The high-waist band provides great coverage and comfortable to move in. They’re especially great for postpartum mamas.
Sizing Info: I bought a size large because reviews said sizing was inconsistent, but could have done a medium.
#15 Dolce Vita Slide Sandal
These Dolce Vita braided sandals are a comfortable heel option (3 1/4 inch). They come in many different colors, and are beautiful to wear casually or for special occasions.
Sizing Info: Run true to size, and got my normal size.
#14 Body Con Tank Dress
Just like the long-sleeve rib dress, this another great dress for layering. This is a tank style, so great for wearing in the warmer months of the year. I paired it with a floral kimono for a pop of color. It’s also a bump-friendly option.
Sizing Info: Sized up to a medium.
#13 Plaid Boyfriend Shirt
Y’all surprised me when you kept scooping up this plaid shirt. I’ve never really been a big fan of plaid button-down shirts. But this year, I needed more nursing-friendly options. I tried this one out, and honestly a fan now. I guess you never know until you try. 🙂
Sizing Info: True to size, and wearing a medium.
#12 Knit Mini Dress
This dress is what I call a no-brainer styling piece. Just throw this on and pair it with knee-high boots or booties, and you’re good to go. The mock-neck isn’t too tight and the entire dress is just all around very comfortable. Also comes in two other colors.
Sizing Info: Runs true to size.
#11 Barefoot Dreams Blanket
Barefoot Dreams blanket – need I say more? Honestly you probably won’t understand the hype until you get one. But then when you get one, you know, and you’ll never go back to another blanket. They’re soft, cozy and the perfect blanket to snuggle up with.
Top 10 Most Loved Items
#10 Spanx Booty Boost Leggings
These leggings are worth their weight in gold because they make you look and feel amazing. If you haven’t tried these, may I suggest you do. You’ll understand once you put them on. The black is pretty sold through, but the cropped version is well stocked as well as the navy-ish blue. I also found the camo pattern in the 7/8 length.
Sizing Info: I wear a size medium in all Spanx leggings. If you’re between sizes, I suggest going up.
#9 Drapey Trench Coat
This drapey trench coat from Abercrombie & Fitch is a great spring and fall coat option. I have the color “In Cream” and the coat comes in three other gorgeous colors. Unfortunately, most sizes are sold out currently. But did find some similar options HERE and HERE.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a size small and runs true to size.
#8 Floppy Wool Hat
A wool hat can elevate any fall and winter outfit. This wool hat has been my go-to option for a few years now, and you all loved it this year too. Here are some other color and style options HERE, HERE and HERE .
#7 Boyfriend Blazer
A great blazer is one of my wardrobe staple items. I love the white with the gold-button detail. I’m hoping they restock this color in the spring, but I linked a few other similar style options HERE and HERE.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a small and runs true to size.
#6 Olly Knee-High Boots
These were a top seller during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and love the quality and fit of these. You can wear these with dresses, jeans and skirts. Here are some similar options HERE and HERE.
Sizing Info: I suggest sizing up a 1/2 size, so they’re easier to get into.
#5 Free Assembly Sweater Dress
This affordable sweater dress was a top seller from Walmart. It’s a great basic to style during the cooler months of the year. It comes in multiple colors and love wearing knee-high boots or booties with this dress.
Sizing Info: I’m wearing a small and fits true to size.
#4 V-Neck Tunic
This v-neck tunic is something I wear on repeat. It’s legging-friendly and a great layering piece to wear under vests too. It comes in a variety of colors, and it’s made of a supersoft fabric.
#3 Free People Turtleneck Sweater
I’m sure you could have guessed that this cozy sweater would make the list. I love wearing it with denim, leggings and over dresses. With dresses, I style a belt at my natural waistline to give the look structure. Unfortunately it’s been in and out of stock most of this year. But did find a burgundy color HERE and similar gray color HERE.
Sizing info: I sized up to a medium for a slightly oversized look.
#2 Vince Camuto Bootie
If I could choose one bootie to wear forever, these would be it. I love the slit-detail and can wear these with just about any outfit. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth with these boots season after season.
Sizing Info: I suggest sizing up a 1/2 size.
#1 BB Dakota Trench Knit Coat
Y’all went crazy for this waterfall jacket during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and for good reason. It’s the perfect mix of a cardigan and jacket to wear with jeans and dresses. Like the Free People sweater, this has also been in and out of stock. I found similar options HERE, HERE and HERE.
Sizing Info: I bought a small but could have sized down to an XS.
