Classic Everyday Pieces

I often get asked about what my wardrobe essentials are.  They are things like a great pair of white skinny jeans, a pair of light wash jeans, the perfect fitting white T, a white button down, and a chambray shirt… They are pieces that can easily be mixed and matched to create an endless amount of classic outfits. Free AssemblyThe Free Assembly collection at Walmart Fashion legit has all of the classic everyday pieces you want and need, plus they’re all so reasonably priced!  From that perfect fitting white T (seriously this one is the best – it’s a creamy white and the cut is SO good), to this chic cream cardigan with tortoise buttons, and this crisp white button down – the collection is full of effortless, classic pieces.  Plus I love that the brand is committed to sustainability. Here are the stand out pieces from my most recent order… The Perfect T-ShirtI ordered this T-shirt in both the creamy white and grey – and LOVE both.  It’s loose, but not overly boxy (I took my normal size) and drapes beautifully.  The best part is, it’s $12 and comes in several other neutral colors. Lightweight Spring JacketThis soft creamy white canvas jacket is stunning in person and will be my go-to lightweight jacket to throw over sundresses and tanks in the spring.  It’s true to size, and the tortoise buttons really elevate the overall look.  I can see myself wearing it around town or even to a casual dinner with sneakers or sandals. Cream CardiganI’ve been looking for the perfect creamy knit cardigan for a while, and this one really wow’d me.  It’s only $28.  My normal size was ideal for this style, and I can see myself wearing it over a simple slip dress, a silky tank, or alone with jeans. White Button DownYou can never have too many white button downs in your closet, and this one will be a staple year round.  It’s not too sheer so you don’t need to wear anything underneath, isn’t overly long so it can be worn tucked out, and has a slimmer fit so it’s really flattering on!  I have a feeling this will sell out in the white color quickly – so definitely snap up your size while you can!

Packing for Palm Beach

It’s currently snowing like crazyyyy as I write this post. Dreaming of warm weather, a pina colada and dipping my toes in the sand haha! I’m heading to Palm Beach in a few days and have been ordering a few things for the trip. Here’s what I’ve got my eye on… These new Dior aviators…swoon! They make the most flattering sunglasses. This personalized iphone case is the one I always use, but I’d love to get the beige with pink letters! I’ve been wanting this Loewe bag for a while, but never pulled the trigger. I think I need it before it sells out again… This Hunza G bathing suit sells out SO quickly because it’s the comfiest and most flattering. Both of these summer sandals are calling my name – the pearl detail is too good! How beautiful is this camel knit dress? And I couldn’t resist ordering this pretty white crop top!

Winter Layers in Paris

I was looking through old photos and realized I never posted this set from my birthday trip to Paris last winter. My first thought was, WOW what I would give to wander the streets of Paris right now, and then I thought, gosh, when will we ever be able to travel internationally again?! I can tell you one thing, I will never take any of it for granted again! Winter Layers in ParisGrey Winter CoatI’ve had this beautiful Soia+Kyo coat (another option) for several years now, and it’s one I never plan on giving away. It’s classic and timeless, and the best part is the collar is removable so you can wear it in the fall and winter. I love pairing it with an all black outfit, but it also looks stunning with a grey + camel look, or even head to toe creamy white look. You can see it styled other ways here and here. Over the knee bootsThese Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots have been a staple in my wardrobe for almost a decade! They’re my favorite OTK boot style, and have held up after all of these years. They’re incredibly warm, sleek and comfortable, which makes them an ideal shoe to walk around a city in for hours and hours. I love them so much I own them in 2 other colors. Chanel Flap BagI often get asked what my absolute favorite bag is or what I suggest as the one designer bag you should have in your closet…and it’s hands down my classic Chanel Flap bag. This is the medium size in black, with caviar leather. I saved up my nannying $ in college and bought it for myself for my 21st birthday. It was a huge splurge at the time, but it’s held up beautifully (it still looks brand new 11 years later), and also appreciated in value (I think it’s almost doubled in price!) There are a ton of great secondhand stores you can look at if you don’t want to buy it new. I’ve bought designer bags from Rebag in the past, and been really happy with them!
