Before I even say anything, I’m just going to throw the graphic up.
You might want to sit down.

Because it’s just that good.
Wait for it.

The rafflecopter is at the bottom of the post, but before you enter, please take a minute to read this reader e-mail and see my answer!
Love your blog more than chocolate cake. And I really love chocolate cake.
I’m in the middle of over-hauling my wardrobe. I had 3 kids in 5 years, and now that the baby is a year old, I’m coming out of my fog. I want to add key pieces to my wardrobe that will be great for me right now, as well as for years to come.
Do you have around 8-10 things that you would recommend for me to add to my closet?
I’ve pretty much been wearing maternity clothes and/or yoga pants for the last 5 years, and I’m done!
I can’t wait to see what Pinterest Told Me To tells me to do!
You love this blog more than chocolate cake?
Well now, that’s sayin’ somethin. Thank you so much!
I have to admit, when I first read your e-mail, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to pull that many things together.
But it seriously took me all of about 2 minutes, and I’d come up with my 10 GO TOs right now, and it took almost no thought.
These are the things that I keep reaching for (time and time again) in my closet RIGHT NOW.
And what’s cool is that these items are also the exact same things that I gravitate
towards during the early fall.
And SEVERAL of the pieces also work for summer (if I’m going out to dinner, to the mall, or really any place that could be blasting the air conditioning).
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, every single one of these items will be highly familiar to you because you see me wear them constantly!
This runs large, so order a size down. Mine is an x-small.
2) White v-neck t-shirt HERE
For size reference, mine is a medium.
3) Stella and Dot renegade bracelets HERE
Great for layering with all my other bracelets.
4) Stella and Dot Kimberly necklace HERE
Love. That’s all I have to say. Love.
5) Michael Kors watch similar HERE
(Or click HERE to see 8 different MK watches on sale!)
I wear this watch just about every single day. And I get compliments on it just about every day.
It’s such a great accessory.
6) Military jacket HERE
This is such a great jacket to throw on and make any outfit cuter!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
7) MUST HAVE denim jacket HERE (at Nordstrom, only x small and large available still),
and HERE at Macy’s in all sizes.
This jacket is definitely fitted, which is why I love it so much. For size reference, mine is a small.
8) MUST HAVE distressed jeans (sold out for months), but jeans from the same maker HERE.
And THESE are from a different maker, but they look similar-ish to my original MUST HAVE clean cuffed jeans.
9) Michael Kors mandarin moccasins HERE
These are true to size. And so amazingly comfortable. Seriously, you won’t believe how comfy.
These shoes are DARLING.
10) Vince Camuto nude patent flats HERE
These are true to size. They aren’t as comfy as the MK moccasins (not many things are), but they are still good. The nude patent is so pretty.
So…how many of you out there already have at least 3 of the GO TO items?
What about at least 5 of the items?
Anybody have more than that?
Leave a comment letting me know!
Since the MUST HAVE denim jacket is at Macy’s, and I know so many of you prefer to order from Nordstrom, I thought I would highlight this new jacket at Nordstrom. Even though it’s a darker blue than the original MUST HAVE, it’s greatness. And it’s also a little bit different than the other medium blue they used to carry. I’ve seen it in person, it’s a tiny bit distressed, and I ADORE it.
This would be a great jacket to have.
Let’s just be honest.
I’m really wanting it myself right now.
Here’s what I’m thinking….
I wear my stonewashed one AT LEAST twice a week.
Okay. I’m lying. I wear it AT LEAST 3 times a week.
It has basically replaced all of the cardigans in my closet.
(And purely fyi, I will never speak of how many cardigans I have collected over the years. And Lisa, Shay, Erika, Andrea, and Narci will never tell either. Because I know their secrets too.) 😉
When I typically would have reached for a cardigan, I now reach for my denim jacket.
It goes with everything, AND I think it’s a much cuter look than a cardigan.
So, it pretty much JUST MAKES SENSE that I consider adding this darker version.
Do any of you ladies out there own both a dark denim and a light denim?
If so, leave a comment saying if you wear both of them plenty to justify me buying a 2nd one.
Click HERE for the jacket that has a good shot of living with me this time next week.
Click HERE for all Kut from the Kloth denim jacket options at Nordstrom (including this white one that’s back again for summer…and would be so cute with khaki shorts and all colored denim pants)!
And make sure you come back tomorrow for about 74,000 additional
outfits with my Top 10 GO TOs that I’ve put together in the past.
When you see them all together you will realize that they are WITHOUT A DOUBT the items that I grab again and again. And again. I wear them all so much it borders on stupid. 🙂
ONE MORE THING BEFORE YOU ENTER THE RAFFLECOPTER!
I used some of my GO TO pieces to complete 2 outfits below.
I don’t think I’ve ever highlighted THIS dress.
Click HERE for this dress.
It’s super stretchy and super comfy.
In addition to the MUST HAVE jacket and Kimberly necklace (links in post above), I’m also wearing my MUST HAVE wedges (HERE) and my green Serenity Stone Drop Earrings (HERE).
I took these next pics to show you the cut of it on top.
The whole thing is stretchy and has a lot of give to it, so it would definitely be comfortable to wear all day long. I think you could dress it up with wedges, but it’s versatile enough that I think it would also do well with some nice flip flops!
Click HERE for the dress.
40% OFF OF EVERYTHING AT LOFT right now (and I think it ends today).
I thought you girls might want to know about my favorite shorts. They
come in 12 colors, and at 40% off are only $23.70! For that price, you
can get AT LEAST 2 colors, because I
promise you will live in them all summer! I got light khaki and the
powder blue (nimbus cloud). I have these same shorts in the dark khaki
and black from last year. LOVE them. I buy the 4″. but if you’re a
taller girl or just prefer longer shorts, they also have a 6″ version.
4 ” inch shorts (what I’m wearing) HERE
6 inch shorts (what I’m wearing) HERE
From what the reviews say, consider buying a size down. I bought the 2s.
The 4s were okay for me in the waist, but the hips were way too big.
I’m telling you. You’re going to love these shorts.
And by the end of summer, you’ll have at least 4 pair.
Here’s another outfit with 3 GO TO items in it.
This outfit has the jacket, the Kimberly necklace, and the nude patents flats (all links found above) and the turquoise serenity stone drop earrings (HERE).
But it also has THESE pants from Anthropologie that are the perfect spring/summer pant.
I love the fun color, and I think they are a great alternative to a colored skinny jean.
They are WAY more comfortable than a jean, that’s for sure!
Click HERE (and take advantage of the FREE SHIPPING right now with orders of $150 or more with the code WEGOTTHIS).
Here’s the Anthro collage I put on facebook Saturday afternoon. (Links to items below collage.)
Yellow Pique smocked swing top (also comes in white) HERE
Orange Paisley sleeveless shirt HERE
Stripes and Floral 3/4 t-shirt HERE
Coral Cuffed pants HERE
(I came home with the yellow top and the pants!)
So…if you’ve been wanting to order from Anthropologie, NOW IS THE TIME!
FREE SHIPPING GIRLS! (And this is something Anthro rarely does.)
And look what just went on sale for 33% OFF!
Remember THESE from my wedge post?
*If you missed the WEDGE POST, click HERE!*
There are 4 color
options, including a black and cognac pair, I just happened to really
like this light color combo of the camel and bone.
Something about the light color combo was just different and fresh!
I didn’t know if I was going to love the thick strap across the top once I put them on, but I did!
It made them unique, and they were quite comfortable.
And remember, more outfits tomorrow showing you TONS of ways to wear my Spring (and sometimes fall and sometimes summer) GO TO items! It’s gonna be fun!
Don’t forget to enter the AMAZING giveaway!
(Psshhhhh. Like THAT would happen.)
