Listen, I’m not going to do this sing-songy post about how much I love fall and the leaves and how the winter snowflakes remind me of the meaning of life.


I’m a bit of a creature of habit. I like what I like, and I wear it a lot. Over and over. With interchangeable little differences.

I also don’t like to spend money. So I take TIME with these decisions and choices. Almost everything on this list has been in my wardrobe for YEARS.

5 Items.

5 Essentials.

5 Things That Aren’t Going To Go Out Of Style By Next Year.


1. The Vegan Leather Open Jacket

Listen, this jacket is the sh*t. You wear it open, it gives you cute shoulders and shape. It has STRETCHY panels on the inside of the sleeves and down the side that make you feel like you’re wearing a sweatshirt, not a jacket. I’m obsessed with this one. I have it in 3 colors, and this is my second black one.

2. Good American Jeans

UGH, I DIDN’T WANT TO GO HERE. But I did. Everyone was just so obsessed with them and singing their praises, I finally caved. AND. THEY. COST. ME. SOME. COIN.

However, I reach for them the most. If I’m bloated, they’re the ones. If I’m going out, they’re the ones. If I’m traveling, they’re the ones. They’re stretchy and flattering and I love the finer details. They were clearly well designed and have expansive sizing and an inclusive website. Sorry, they’re so expensive though. But one good pair of jeans can replace 6 “ok” ones. Right? Right. Breathe. We spent money, it’s ok.

3. Spanx Arm Tights

Ok, so these are like the weirdest thing, but yet so cool. It takes your summer wardrobe and makes it a transition into cooler months with these sheer arm sleeves. It’s amazing what you can layer them with.

4. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

Another “investment” piece with these. I myself was influenced to buy these years ago. I had been wanting faux leather leggings and kept buying cheaper versions and HATING them. They weren’t flattering, they wore hot to the skin, they were uncomfortable and honestly, I just was terrified a Ross Gellar paste pants sitch happening. So I caved. I bought these years ago. They’re the effing best. Double-layered, stay cool, aren’t too shiny, flattering AF, and high waisteddddd. Bless.

5. This Lipstick

Everyone goes all RED HOT around this time of year. But this shade of pink you’ll be shocked at how much you wear it through these months. WHY? Because it’s edgy, it’s hot, it makes your entire black on black outfit suddenly come alive. It also works on every skin tone I’ve ever seen and doesn’t make your teeth look yellow.

That is all.
