When you find a good staple, it’s just so satisfying. Here are a few of my recent favorites – I am actually wearing this entire combination today as I type.
Plaid pants. I discovered these pants two weeks ago (16 days to be exact), and have worn them 7 times.
Twice out on a Saturday night – first out to dinner and then to a fancy catered house party – and the remaining 5 times to work.
I’d say 7 out of 16 is a pretty good hit rate. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
Down coat. It has finally become cold enough to break out this down puffer, and I’m in love. LL Bean kills it in this category.
Boatneck tunic sweater. I used to think it was absurd to buy a white sweater – surely they will stain so quickly and be a waste. But at this price I say go for it (on sale for $36!).
Satchel. Every. Single. Day. That’s how often I use this bag. And it still looks brand new after a full year of use – that’s a rare quality, and makes it more than worth the price.
Here’s a peak inside mine (Yes, I did tidy it before snapping this picture. And yes, I am reading Harry Potter).
Flats. Sustainable (made from recycled water bottles), practical (machine washable), comfortable (woven – by a 3D printer) and cute. I’d say they check all the boxes. I bought them to use as a commuter shoe, and have ended up wearing them all day every day (You can see a snippet in the picture above).
Polish. I typically can’t be bothered, what with all the chipping and maintenance- but this makes it so simple and it truly glows. Would make a perfect stocking stuffer.
