61 Feminine Essentials For A Complete Wardrobe

The Bare Essentials

I am no minimalist. I love to be a bit extra & definitely think more is always more. But if I lost everything, or wanted to start my wardrobe from scratch, these 61 feminine essentials would create a complete wardrobe ready for every season. That’s right! This post includes clothes, outerwear, accessories, the whole nine yards! I guess you could say this would be my version of a super chic capsule wardrobe. Honestly, I truly believe every woman would benefit from having these items in their wardrobe. I’m not going to say you need them, because you don’t “need” any of them, but having this solid base will enable you to look chic & feminine with ease no matter what season you’re in.

Under The Sea

Along with the endless hair accessories you can find just about everywhere, there seems to be one other constant theme from retailers recently: shells! Shell accessories are an easy way to stay on trend this spring/summer. Whether it’s a pair of gold shell earrings or a shell woven bag, this trend is one I am so thrilled to take part in this season. What a fun way to feel like you’re bringing a bit of the beach wherever you go?!

Look At This Stuff, Isn’t It Neat?

How fun are these pearl embellished gold shell earrings? I’m totally obsessed. These lovelies will go with just about every outfit I will wear this spring/summer. I just love the statement they make while staying totally in my comfort zone with the gold tone & pearls. Another fun shell accessory I’ll be wearing this season is this fun woven shell bag. Of course, I’m keeping this in the same theme with the sweet pearls covering the clasp. This bag can be worn as either a clutch or as a crossbody making it easy to transition from day to night. I already love woven bags for the coming season, & this adorable shell shape is just the icing on the cake!

A few other pieces I’ve added to my collection recently include these gold shell hoops, my starfish studs, & my nautical charm bracelet. There are so many amazing styles out right now, & the great thing about this trend is that you can find quality pieces at an affordable price.

A Life Long Love

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved fashion. In fact, even before that, when I was just a tiny thing, I was known to say things like, “I really neeeeed jewelry.” (when asked what I wanted for Christmas), & I always chose a dress over pants or leggings when given the option because I always needed to “spin”.

In high school, I had a couple of friends with whom I decided to make a true fashion statement everyday at school & not care what anyone else thought. We would look through fashion magazines & find trends or accessories that we thought we could DIY at home, since we didn’t have any money. We sewed buttons on shirts, made hair clips & headbands, distressed our own jeans, etc. I’m sure people thought we were ridiculous (my boyfriend at the time definitely did), but we didn’t care. Fashion was a bond we shared. It gave us confidence to be whoever we wanted to be. Of course, I have had my share of terrible outfits, but that’s all part of the process.

This is why I love this beautiful thing we call fashion. It shapes you, expresses your mood & feelings, as well as holds that moment to a time in history.

My Daily Masterpiece

How cool is it that we can literally wear art on our bodies every single day?! Not only do we get to wear art, but we get to create art by piecing a look together bit by bit. Each accessory creating more depth & meaning to the daily masterpiece. A new creation each day! Isn’t that an amazing thing? Choosing colors by mood or season to make a statement.

I love that an outfit can say so much with no words at all. Your daily look can say, “Look at me”, “Don’t look at me”, “I’m so happy”, “I’m quite sad”, “I just want to be cozy”, “Don’t take your eyes off me”, or it can even be the most subtle & perfect form of rebellion. Even not trying to make a statement is making a statement. Whether you think so or not, YOU are an artist, cultivating your craft one day & one outfit at a time.

No End In Sight

Another huge reason why I love fashion is that it is always evolving & changing. There are always more colors & prints to mix, more ways to combine what I already own, more accessories to play with, & more silhouettes to discover. I love that while some pieces are classic & timeless that will be worn year after year, others are trends that fade with each new year. There is literally no end in sight for fashion & what will come next.

Fashion gives so much room for play & individuality, while also being a common ground for each & every one of us. I love that just switching one article of clothing like a coat, a handbag, or a pair of shoes, can completely transform a look. There is always more to discover, rules to learn & then to break, trends to love & trends to hate, a time to purchase & a time to donate.

Overall, I love fashion because of the joy & confidence it brings me. Each day I choose to dress up for me. A fun & bold outfit makes me walk proudly, laugh often, & be the best version of me that I can be.

Jord Watch

Jord Watch

Hello Everyone!

Sometimes, a beautiful watch is just the accessory you need to complete your fall look. They are the perfect juxtaposition of function & fashion, helping us look professional & put together while adding that extra, elemental detail that looks amazing in photos. This time of year, when all I want to wear are knit sweaters, camel coats, & roll necks, I find that a chunkier watch fits right in & really helps a look come together.

In the spirit of Christmas that is quickly approaching, I’m happy to announce that I have partnered with Jord Watches as a part of their Holiday Campaign. I’ve always loved the look of a wood watch, & the craftsmanship & care put into these beautiful products is unmatched. (*Read through the end for an exclusive holiday discount!*) My watch is a gorgeous zebrawood with a bold navy face. Navy is one of my very favorite colors to wear year-round, so when I saw this one, I knew I needed it in my collection. The coolest part about Jord Watches is that they are actually made of real, hand-finished wood! I’m in awe of the quality of this product, & even though is it wood, it’s splash-proof! (phew! Although…better not submerge it in water.)

The watch itself is great, but another selling factor is the packaging! Every watch comes in it’s own wooden box that acts as a humidity control home for your wooden watch. The bottom has a drawer with vents & is equipped with humidity packs to ensure optimal humidity when storing your watch. The top secures by a very satisfying magnetic pull, & looks perfect displayed on a bedside table or vanity.

A nice, hand-crafted wood watch makes the perfect holiday gift for someone special in your life. I know my boyfriend already has his sights set on the Hyde Series watch in walnut & black, which will probably be making it into his stocking this year (hopefully he isn’t reading this!). For women, I would suggest the Frankie Series (like my watch), or the brand new slimmer band Cassia Series. The walnut & vintage rose has my name written all over it!

Since this partnership is for their Holiday Campaign, they very kindly gave me a coupon code for 25% off your entire purchase! Just click here, & you will be emailed with your very own discount code. This is their biggest deal of the year…so don’t miss out!
