wardrobe staples worth the investment


You guys know how much I love shopping and finding new trendy pieces to share with y’all. But even MORE than that, I love investing in wardrobe staples I know I will wear for YEARS to come, and can wear in so many different ways! So today I wanted to share some of my wardrobe staples in my closet that I’ve had for years, that I 100% believe are worth the investment (if you are looking for that type of purchase right now!)


First up, this leather jacket. I have shared with you guys dozens of times (bought in 2018) and it is worth every penny. I shopped for the perfect leather jacket for YEARS until purchasing this one! I didn’t want one that was too boxy or “moto” and I love that this one is classic and feminine and simple. Having a good quality leather jacket in your wardrobe is key. You will wear it year after year – with dresses, denim, sweatpants, and more! For size reference, I’m wearing this jacket in an XS. If you are in between sizes, I recommend going up a size!

Next, these Celine sunglasses are also a major investment but ones you will have and wear for YEARS to come. They are great quality so you don’t have to worry about them stretching out or scratching. And the style is so classic that you know you can wear them whether you are 20 or 50 (IMO). I think having a classic pair of sunglasses in your wardrobe – that you can pair with sweatpants, swimsuits, denim, date night outfits, etc…in a classic + timeless style is very much worth the investment. And this pair meets all of those requirements for me!

I’ve gotten a lot of questions from you guys about my veja sneakers…and I’m sure y’all know by now they are one of my fave pair of shoes I own! I wear mine with leggings, denim, or dresses and LOVE how they look with so many different types of outfits. They did take a few wears to break in but once I broke them in, I thought they were so comfortable and I can wear them all day long without my feet ever hurting. Finding a classic white sneaker like this for your wardrobe is such a great investment because you will get SO much use out of them!


What are some items you’ve invested in for your wardrobe that have been worth the money? I’d love to hear about some of your faves in the comments below!
