OK, first off, the reason I am walking in every photo in this post is because I have found it is the best way to see the side stripe on the side of these jeans; so please don’t laugh at me too hard 😉

If you’ve been following along for awhile, you know I repeat favorite items from my closet over, and over, and over again! Right now, I have noticed that a ton of my outfits on the blog in 2018 feature these striped jeans! It is not really a surprise because even if I don’t photograph my outfit, this is the first pair of jeans I reach for in the morning.

There is something to be said about a pair of jeans that offers both comfort and style. These jeans are soooooo soft, they are great on days when I am tired and just want to throw something on; yet they are ideal for dressy denim looks due to the silhouette, the side stripe details, and the raw edge. I just love them!

These jeans have proven to be easy to wear with flat shoes, boots, sandals, and heels. They really go with any shoe! I love wearing them with flat mules, boots, and my block heel slides! One of these days I plan to wear them with block heeled pumps for night out on the town.

Do you have something in your closet you just can’t get enough of?

Can’t get enough of my . . . Gucci Princeton mules

Wearing classic black Gucci Princeton Mules

I can’t get enough of my . . . Gucci Princeton Mules in classic black! When the Gucci Princeton Mules first started trending last year, I instantly fell in love. They offer classic, effortless styling with just a bit of understated glam. This is totally me!

My personal style is California Casual with a touch of glam. So when the Gucci mules started appearing everywhere, I knew I needed a pair. Although they have been designed in so many different colors and patterns; it was the classic black style which drew my eye. I knew I would wear them often; and I was right!

This pair of classic black, Gucci Princeton Mules has been in my closet for a year now. I have worn them throughout the year, in all four seasons. You can see in this post a sample of the outfits I have worn them with; and this is only what has been photographed!

This is a pair of shoes I reach for several times per week; and if my feet hurt from another pair of shoes, I slip into my Gucci mules mid-day for instant comfort. These really are a true pair of go-to shoes. They are comfortable, effortless, and easy to walk in. Last summer, I walked all over Chinatown with my family in these mules, and they were amazingly comfortable!

As an alternative to flats, I find myself reaching for my Gucci Princeton Mules so often that my classic black flats are collecting dust; no joke! I can’t remember the last time I wore any pair of flats other then my Gucci mules!

In the past, I have talked about investment dressing and owning closet staples which can last through anything. These Gucci Princeton Mules are a prime example of an investment piece every fashionista needs in her closet. They are truly classic, and a must-have! I would love to own another pair in a different color; or perhaps indulge in an embroidered pair!

Can’t get enough of my . . . black top handle satchel!

black satchel and outfit details shown in this post:

I think as a blogger, it is always fun to go through your posts and find items which reappear on a regular basis. In May, I discovered my favorite boyfriend jeans were on repeat; and I wondered if you were getting bored of them, or loving them! It was fun to write a post about how much I wear them, and love them. To this day, I still wear them often, although I am trying to not post them as much, for fear I’m boring you. What are your thoughts? Do you enjoy continuing to see an item I wear on repeat, or does it bore you to see it so often? Please weigh in with a comment!

This top handle black satchel by Givenchy has been in my closet since 2014. I found in early 2015 that is it a workhorse handbag. I wore this satchel to fashion week in February 2015, and found it was perfect for carrying my camera, as well as everything else I need to hold in my purse. I loved it so much, I purchased an Antigona in pale blue. Although the pale blue does not get worn nearly as often as the black version, it is still a workhorse and favorite bag of mine.

There are so many things to love about my small Givenchy Antigona bag. Aside from the sturdy build, hearty sugar leather, and ideal size; this bag can be worn with almost anything, for any occasion! I carry it when I wear jeans, workout clothing, dresses, skirts, office attire, casual attire; you name it! This bag has a classic, almost-doctor-bag silhouette which offers a chic look, and timeless style. The construction is extremely sturdy; I have discovered this over the years by carrying heavy objects such as my DSLR camera. I have also found, that it is my favorite bag for getting through fashion week.

Although I love owning shoulder bags, clutches, and totes, my Givenchy Antigona satchel is my all-time favorite bag. I cannot imagine living without it. I keep it out and ready for use everyday. It fits snacks and toys for my kids, as well as work items for when I am on the go in the fashion scene. This bag has it all. When you hear the term “investment bag,” my Givenchy Antigona goes beyond the financial definition of an investment bag, for me, it is a priceless tool that gets me through the day.

This bag transcends seasons, and trends. Like a Chanel 2.55 bag, the Givenchy Antigona is a classic. Someday I would love to add one to my collection in a neutral hue such as tan or beige.

Do you have a handbag in your closet that you can’t get enough of? I would love to hear about it!
