Favorite Things of 2020

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite things that I purchased or received in 2020. From loungewear to skincare and home goods, and many of the products I’m sharing are on sale!

Customizable tie dye sweatshirt

The tie dye trend is here to stay, so design your own hand dyed and hand embroidered sweatshirt by Eliza! I ordered a large for an oversized look.

Wrist & ankle weights

I go for a walk most days, and I feel like I’m getting a little extra work in when wearing these ankle and wrist weights. They come in 1 and 2 pound versions.

Printed headband

Y’all know how much I love headbands, and this one is no exception. I have found that these neutral colors go with almost everything. Worn here and here.

Tula set

I don’t know much about skincare, but I do know that I LOVE Tula products! They are constantly coming out with new products that keep your skin clean, fresh and healthy.

Fresh bath towels

These towels feel like a cloud! I don’t know what kind of towels I’ve been using all of my life, but these are a game changer. You can get free monogramming on their site now!

Heart earrings

Statement earrings – another accessory I love, and these are on sale! I wore these for our engagement shoot.

Leather bag

This bag is the perfect evening bag, and it fits more than you would think! Small wallet, phone, keys, lipstick, hand sanitizer, sunglasses and the list goes on.

Barefoot Dreams blanket

I live in this cozy blanket year round, and surprisingly it’s on sale! MOVE FAST.

1 inch curling iron

Since high school I’ve always curled my hair with a 1.5 to 2 inch curling iron, but I’ve started using the 1 inch for a tighter longer lasting curl. I also use this as a wand.

Snakeskin boots

My favorite boots ever!! I am so glad I splurged on these this fall, but lucky for you, they are on sale now.

Metallic leggings

I am super particular about my leggings, and these check all the boxes. Fitted but not too tight, they don’t sag and wear really well. These are also marked down!

Suede booties

A camel suede bootie is a classic shoe you will wear season after season. These look great with jeans, skirts and dresses! Worn here.

Leopard sweatshirt & joggers

I haven’t taken this cozy set off since Henry gave it to me!

Keeping things cozy in the New Year

I’m going to keep things cozy this new years weekend, so I wanted to show you some of my go-to items to do just that. First, of course, is the matching lounge set. These make me feel pulled together while remaining oh so comfy! Next, you have to have some fuzzy slippers and a super soft blanket. Lastly, you need some clean beauty products to take care of your skin while you’re taking a day or two to slow down. Click the links below to shop!

Gift Guide for the Girls

Need gift ideas for your girls? Mamas, friends, girlfriends? I picked out everything from home decor to beauty depending on what your best gal loves!

| headband | stemless glasses | tiger coasters | pictures 1 & 2 |

| bow heels | leather bag |

Well, you know I love a headband. They are the best accessory and add such a fun pop of color and texture. They also make a great stocking stuffer! If your girl loves to host a get together, stemless wine glasses, colorful coasters and a print on the wall are perfect.

| pajamas | round brush hairdryer | face roller | beauty set | leggings |

| silk pillow case | wrist weights | hoodie & joggers | sneakers |

My new favorite thing is this set of wrist weights! I love a power walk, and these are the perfect addition. Add these leggings and funky sneakers to complete your workout look. Because many of yall are still working from home, shop this loungewear set to make working from home a little more fun and comfy.

| floral dress | eyeshadow palette | shawl | puffer jacket | sunglasses |

| jewelry case | headband | ginger jars |

I’m obsessed with this metallic bomber. How great would this be paired with jeans and a sweater or your go-to workout gear?! You could even layer it over the floral midi dress. One day I hope my home is accessorized with a few ginger gars, and maybe your girl does too.

I hope this post filled with a few of my favorite things helps you shop for your girls this holiday season! XO, MS

Pleated Cut Out Maxi Dress

| dress | heels | earrings | watch | clutch | lips | curling iron | necklace |

Can you tell these are my favorite party shoes?! They go with everything and are perfect for any time of year. I was hesitant to splurge on these heels 8 months ago, but I’ve already worn them countless times! They even look great with jeans and a top, styled here. If you have an event coming up, snag this dress too while it’s still on major sale!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Light Blue Lace Dress

| dress: 1, 2, 3 | shoes | earrings | clutch | curling iron |

| similar dress: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 |

Another beautiful couple is married! My girl, May, married her guy, William this weekend in Memphis. What a joy it was to be a part of their intimate ceremony. New and old friends gathered to celebrate them, and I walked away realizing just how loved they are and how well they love others. Cheers to the Clinkscales!

I bought this dress awhile back, so I linked similar dresses by the same designer. I also linked this exact dress on consignment sites.

I hope you are able to get dressed up soon!

XO, Mary Sanford
