  1. On the more casual side I would say a favorite pair of jeans and go-to t-shirt. :)

  2. Agreed, five great pieces, the dress is lovely on you.

  3. Finding a dress that can become THE little black dress for your closet is seriously the best!

  4. The dress is totally a must! These are great pictures, you look amazing!

  5. I love this dress! I have one that looks almost the same from Target, and it's definitely my go to because it's so easy to wear and you can change up your accessories easily! Love all the beach pictures!

  6. I love that dress on you! I don't think I could narrow it down to 5, but I think a great pair of jeans has to go on the list somewhere!

  7. Love the outfit and the necklace to give it a pop of color!

  8. Since I'm in the professional world, I'd say a perfectly fitted navy blazer, a pair of black and a pair of nude pumps, and a structured leather bag that can go from work to cocktails and still hold all your essentials! and of course a signature accessory--mine is a headband!

  9. I love that your finds are actually affordable! :] You look great!

    A pair of jeans, yoga pants, and good workout shoes would make it into my top 5. During my study hibernation, comfort is key, so I've exclusively been living in t-shirts and sweats/yoga pants. :P

  10. agreed with this! and that dress looks amazing on you!

  11. Could not live without a pair of Jack Rogers!!

  12. Couldn't agree more with these!

  13. One- I love your outfit!!! It's absolutely fabulous and fits you so well and two- I couldn't agree more. The LBD, Statement necklace and wedges are a definite must!

  14. Love the outfit, especially the bright colored necklace and bracelet! I've been on the search for the perfect LBD for so long--your's is super cute!

  15. So.....I don't have any of those *cough*. On another note, I think your hair looks amazing in all those photos!

  16. I love that necklace (and the bracelet)! I agree...a black dress is a necessity! I'm still on the hunt for the perfect scarf for all seasons. You have such a pretty smile too!

  17. Totally in love with those shoes!! You look awesome!

  23. Stopping by from the Treat Yo Self link up!! Love your wardrobe essentials! Totally agree - every girl needs these 5 items! Carly x

  24. I love the final part about a scarf for all seasons.... I am sad to say I have become slightly obsessed and the "scarf for all seasons" has turned into 32 scarves for a couple different seasons. How I ended up with this many is beyond me, but scarves are a definite must. I love your post. Also loving seeing another blogger in her 20s without kids! So hard to find! For sure following!


It makes me so happy each time you leave a comment. I love connecting with my readers! Happy blogging friends.
