There’s nothing better than buying something that you continue to wear or use time and time again. Looking back on last year I had a few purchases that became my staple items that continue I to turn to. I know that you would love these items as much as I do so I wanted to share them with you.
1- PINK BOOTIES
I got these fun Topshop booties from Nordstrom Rack just before I went on my girls trip to San Fransisco and I’ve been wearing them non-stop ever since. There is actually a running joke in my family about these boots- I accidentally left my sneakers at home while on the trip so I wore these booties bike riding across the golden gate bridge. My dad makes a joke about it every time I wear them. But that just shows how comfortable they are. I literally wear them everywhere and they are the perfect shade of pink so they go with absolutely everything!!

2- REBECCA MINKOFF HANDBAG
I picked up this Rebecca Minkoff Small Love Nubuck Crossbody Bag at the Nordstrom Half yearly sale and I’m obsessed. This bag comes in so many amazing colors but I’m so happy I picked this lavender one. I was unsure if this color would go with many things but it’s actually the perfect shade of purple. And the black gunmetal color hardware gives it a little bit of edge which I love. You can wear it casual or dressed up and I just can’t seem to get enough!

3- DISTRESSED HIGH-RISE CROP DENIM
You know you love a specific pair of jeans when you continue to wear them day after day. I try to mix up my denim somewhat often but I continue to find myself coming back to this specific pair or the same style. I basically only wear high rise denim now- if you don’t yet them what are you waiting for? I promise it will change your life! I’m also loving the distressed look right now because it adds a little character to the denim and really gives it a lived in look. As for the cropped fit it really lets you show off the shoes that your wearing.

4- STILA LONGWEAR LIPCOLOR IN PERLA
I first got a trial size sample of the Stila Longwear Lipcolor in my monthly birchbox(check out my birchbox post here) and I was really happy with the quality of the product. I normally get chapped lips pretty easily and so it’s difficult finding a longwear lipstick that doesn’t dry out my lips. If you’ve been looking for a good longwear lipstick then look no further-this one is the best! Stila has a lot of good color options of this lipstick but my absolute favorite is Perla. It’s a matte rosy nude color and really looks good with everything.
SHOP THE LIPSTICK
5- OFF THE SHOULDER BLACK DRESS
I bought this adorable off the shoulder dress from Abercrombie & Fitch last Spring and it has become a closet staple. I wore it all summer as an easy everyday dress, as a cover up over my bathing suit or even for a dinner date with the hubby. It went on several vacations with me including Palm Springs, Maui and Las Vegas. It’s so comfortable yet chic and I loved it so much I even did a full blog post on it which you can read here. This exact dress is sold out in black but it’s still available in two other colors which I linked below with similar styles.

6- STELLA & DOT AVEN LAYERING NECKLACE
If there was one necklace that I wore the most last year it would be the Aven. Since I’m a Stella & Dot Stylist I obviously LOVE the jewelry but if I had to pick a favorite then this necklace would be one of them. The best part of this necklace and really most of the Stella & Dot pieces is the versatility. This necklace has 3 different strands that you can wear all together, two at a time or just one. You can mix and match the pieces depending out what you’re wearing it with. My favorite combination is the one pictured above which are the soft choker and the leather strand. It has a slight bohemian vibe to it which I love. You can shop this necklace below as well as other favorites from Stella & Dot.

7- COZY STAR PJ SET
When temperatures starting cooling off I was on the hunt for a cute matching pj set. I found this gray star set and fell in love. It’s super cozy and comfortable and it’s become my go to pj’s. I love the jogger style of the pants and I can mix and match them with other cozy tops I have.
