i am SO excited about this new series we’re kicking off today: “if i could only have one.” part of my job as a content creator involves me trying out MILLIONS of different products – different running shoes, jeans, vitamin c serums, dry shampoos etc! i basically feel like a human guinea pig trying out all the things so i can share with you guys what is really WORTH IT.
so this series is going to be all about “if i could only pick ONE” and narrowing down my best of the best, top picks for different categories – from fashion to beauty to fitness and more!! starting today with fashion! most (if not all) of these items i’ve had for anywhere from 1 to 4 years and have worn a bajillion times. so they have stood the test of time and made it through a million closet clean outs!

i love the oversized fit of this madewell denim jacket. i bring it with me on beach trips to wear on the airplane, to wear over sundresses...i also love pairing it with leggings and a hoodie. it truly goes with everything and the quality if madewell denim is top notch...so this jacket has lasted me for years and years!shop now
i have raved about this bra on my instagram stories - my sister and i were actually just talking about it because she bought its after seeing my posts and is now equally as obsessed. i have been on a bra journey in the last year+ trying to find the perfect bra - one that fits well, is comfortable, gives god support, but not too much padding. and this one checks ALL THE BOXES and more. sometimes i forget i'm wearing a bra when i wear this bra because you can hardly feel it, but it still provides the perfect amount of support and fits SO WELL! you should probably buy multiple colors because it's th only bra you'll want to wear going forward.shop now
picking one pair of sunglasses was almost impossible ha i LOVE sunglasses. but since i bought this pair about a year ago, they have become my go to. if we are going on a trip and i can only bring one pair, these are always what i bring. they are chic and make a statement, while still being classic and not TOO much. i love the tortoise color and the subtle cat eye. they are oversized without being too big and i think flattering on any face shape!shop now
i have at least 4 different leather jackets now...but this madewell one is for sure my most-worn, go-to leather jacket. i bought it right after shiloh was born (so, over 4 years ago) and still wear it ALL the time. i love the fit of it because it's not too thick or boxy or ~~moto-y~~ if that makes sense. the leather is so soft and has honestly just gotten better with time! definitely a wardrobe staple if you don't have a leather jacket yet! (i wear this in a size xs but if you're going to layer thick sweaters underneath it, i suggest sizing up).shop now
y'all know how much i love my everyday gold jewelry and i switch it up constantly! BUT this electric picks necklace is always a staple in my rotation! it's thick enough so you can wear it on its own and it makes a statement but also works great with any other chains / charms layer as well! y'all can use code lauren20 for 20% off!shop now
i got these hoops lasts year and have only taken them off a few times since then! i like that they are different than just your standard gold hoop or diamond stud - kind of the best of both worlds. they are feminine and classy and go with everything (and lightweight). i sleep in these, workout in them, shower etc and never even notice i have them on! y'all can use code LKS for 10% off!shop now
i bought these jeans early 2022 and they were one of my best purchases of the whole year. you know when you go through your closet finding something to wear and think ~~i hate all of this i have nothing to wear~~? whenever i have those days...i know i can ALWAYS count on these jeans haha. i always love how they look with any top, love the fit, and i think they are so flattering, the quality of the denim is also amazing - they haven't stretched out at all and still look + feel brand new even though i've worn them hundreds of times! (these run TTS in my opinion. i'm wearing the 24 in these photos)shop now
i bought these high top sneakers in early 2022 and was a little hesitant at first because they're not cheap. but WOW have i gotten my money's worth. these are the sneakers i bring on every trip because they are SO comfy and they look SO cute with everything from leggings to denim to dresses! i wore these all over disney world and my feet felt so comfortable. they are such a classic shoe you will get so much use out of for years to come!shop now
i wasn't sure if i should include these leggings in my fitness category or fashion, but decided to go with fashion because i wear these leggings WITH EVERYTHING! they are SO smoothing and flattering and have this subtle shine material so they can really be dressed up or down! i love these leggings because i lounge in them, workout in them, but also love pairing them with an oversized sweatshirt and sneakers for a cool everyday athletic look! i've worn and washed mine hundreds of times and they don't pill or stretch out! i have these in 3 colors and still want more haha. (these run TTS - i wear the XS).shop now
i have acquired A LOT of suede booties over the years, but this specific pair tends to be the one i grab over and over again. i love the somewhat higher shaft on these and that you can really dress them up or down. i love the pointed toe and the fact that they have a heel but it's not TOO tall and they are still comfortable! i've worn these hundreds of times over the past few years and they've worn so well / still look new! these run TTS in my opinion!shop now
