5 Spring Essentials Worth Investing In

As much as I love shopping I try to abide by a couple of rules when it comes to the things I buy. The most important rule that I go by is splurging only when it comes to items that I know I’ll get the most use out of. It’s always easier for me to justify a purchase when I know I will wear the item over and over, and also can style it multiple ways. These items vary from season to season, but I’ve rounded up the 5 items that I feel are most worth investing in for the spring.

1. A statement bag.

I tend to steer clear of bright colors or busy patterns so for me having a stand out accessory is a must. It makes it so easy to add a fun detail to any look no matter how dressy or casual it may be. Although, there are so many options for styles and sizes I love the cross body style for a spring bag. I’m usually on the go, so this style is the most practical for me. Also, how gorgeous is this color of this bag? I love the subtle statement that it adds to any outfit. If blue isn’t your color this bag and this one are both great options as well!

2. Simple and versatile jewelry.

It wouldn’t be an essentials post if I didn’t mention the She’s Unique jewelry pieces that I’m currently obsessed with. Because all of the pieces they have are delicate and understated they make for the perfect essentials to add to your spring wardrobe. One of my favorite pieces from the collection is the double baguette ring I’m wearing here. Some of my other must-haves are the stacking rings seen here and here, and the choker. These are pieces that will go with every outfit you put together this season.

3. Neutral, comfortable shoes.

We all know what a struggle it can be to find shoes that go with the majority of your wardrobe and that are also still comfortable to wear for long periods of time. This heeled sandals officially meet these requirements and are definitely a new essential in my closet. Because of the block heel they are still easy to walk in while also dressing up any look. I also love the taupe color- it matches with virtually anything!

4. Distressed denim.

Jeans and a tee shirt are my go-to everyday style. Since, I tend to keep it simple I like to add detail to my looks with a fun pair of distressed denim like the one’s here. These jeans are one of the most used items in my closet, which makes it worth investing in (even though the price point is super affordable on this pair!). Having a pair of jeans that are versatile and that you are comfortable will be well worth the money spent.

5. Classic white shirt

The simplicity of a white shirt makes it one of my favorite closet staples. The possibilities are endless when creating ways to style it- you can wear it with shorts, jeans, dress it up or down. The white collared shirt I’m wearing here is a fun spin on the classic piece because of the subtle pattern and the oversized fit. I like wearing shirts with this fit either tucked in or tied at the waist to create a little definition.

 

There you have it! All of my must-have pieces this season. If I missed any, let me know in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have an amazing weekend!
