Top 10 New Year Must Have’s

Top 10 New Year Must Have’s

Happy New Year Everyone! 2017 is here and I couldn’t feel anymore ready for it. I feel like I have lot’s of things to look forward to in the coming year and I can’t wait to see what it brings. I have lot’s of creative ideas for the blog and hope to bring you all some really fun content over the year, and planning a wedding with my fiancé is a big one of course! and for those of you wondering we are still in the very early stages of wedding planning and we haven’t even decided on a venue yet, which by the way is actually starting to stress me out a bit! but I feel like once Andrew and I finally find a venue then all the planning can fall into place and all the fun stuff can start, like picking out flowers, decor and MY DRESS of course.

With the new year starting I thought I would put together a list of my top 10 must have items for starting 2017. So here you have it, all my essentials for starting the new year right!

1. Planner/Agenda

This is a must for me! I love to write things down when i’m making plans or even when I have an idea that I want to come back to later that i don’t want to forget about. They are also great for staying on track with any goals you have set for your self over the new year. I got the black & white striped Kate Spade 2017 agenda, but I have also linked a few other here as well:

2. The Perfect Tote

Tote bags are great for fitting everything you need to tackle the day in one great looking bag. I’ve always had one from when I was going to school or work because I needed a bag that looked great but also fit everything I need in it. My favourite that I’ve had so far is my Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Tote (HERE) which I have in black but is now one sale in the burgundy colour. It fits my laptop, agenda, makeup and wallet all perfectly. I’ve also linked some other options here:

3. Workout gear

The start of a new year is always a great time to set new goals and aim to live a healthier life. I know I always try to rethink new ways I can incorporate exercise into my life because the same old exercise routine gets boring, and what better way is there to get motivated and get moving other than looking good and having new workout gear! One of my absolute favourite places to get clothes for working out is LULULEMON. It’s not the cheapest you’ll find but to me the quality and comfort of their clothing is worth it. Below here I have linked some of my favourite pieces that I wear on repeat and a few that I have my eye on currently:

4. Warm Coat

I don’t know about the rest of you but where I live it has been so cold lately, and a warm coat is absolutely necessary!

5. The sweater you’ll wear with everything

Winter is in full swing and sweater weather is here. If you haven’t found that perfect sweater that you can wear with almost everything in your closet, now is the time! here are some great neutral ones here:

6. A coffee mug to get you started on the right foot in the morning 

I’m a big coffee drinker and sometimes on those early mornings I need that hot cup of coffee more than i’d like to admit, and having the perfect mug to have it in while at work or at home can sometimes make all the difference in the start to your day!

7. New boots


If you haven’t already gotten that pair of boots you’ve been eyeing this season, now is the time! you are most likely wearing boots most days of the week and they are what keep your feet warm, so go ahead and splurge on a new pair since you will be wearing them a ton! i’ve linked my favourites (they’re all on sale) here:

My steve madden ankle cut out booties pictured above can be found HERE

My Brown/Chestnut Over the knee heeled boots can be found HERE (recommend going a half – to a full size up as they fit small) that is what I did!

8. A watch that goes with everything 

Daniel wellington makes the some of the most versatile watches than can be worn dressed up or dressed down. I wear mine almost everyday! right now take advantage of my CODE KRISTENEIL and get 15% off your watch!

9. The Moto Jacket 

This is one of my major go to’s right now in my closet and I love how I can pair it with jeans or a dress for a more casual or dressed up look. My moto jacket that I am wearing here is still currently on sale for an amazing price under $100! I was honestly so impressed when mine showed up in the mail, for a faux leather jacket it doesn’t get any better than this one! it’s such great quality and looks like real leather. Mine is an xsmall Shop it here:

10. A Cozy Plaid Flannel
