Wow, I can’t believe we’re saying bye to 2020 in just a few short hours. This year feels like one of the longest and shortest years of life, all at once. One minute it was February and I was bouncing all around the country and world from St Kitts to New York to LA [2x] to Seattle and then the next it’s March and I feel like I haven’t left the house since. To say it’s been an odd year is an understatement. Fortunately, there were still good things that came from 2020 and on a fashion level, these items are it. I thought it’d be fun to share my favorite clothing purchases of 2020, those tried & true items that I fell in love with and couldn’t stop wearing all year long. From dresses to sandals, swimsuits, and coats – introducing the “best of” 2020 fashion edition…

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 135 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can the any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!
