Worth the Investment

Worth the Investment - Sequins and Stripes You know that feeling when you miss an item that you wish you had purchased last season only to see it hit stores again the following year? I love that! That is when you know the piece is worth the investment, seasonal, and without a doubt a staple in your closet. I don’t know about you guys but in Chicago staples are essential. We wear the same season of clothing {think lots of layers} almost 9 months of the year and I’ve realized that instead of wasting my money on items that only last a year, it is worth it for me to invest in pieces that I know will last me much longer. I always keep a running list in my phone of items I’d like to save up for and above are a few items currently on my “worth the investment” list. Do you have any items that you’re dying to add to your closet? I am already dreaming up ways to wear each of these pieces. Now and later! {Especially the pink Tibi skirt which I lusted over last year, so pretty now with a chambray shirt and over the holidays with a sparkly top}.  I’d also like to add this leather jacket and these Stuart Weitzman boots, just saying. Also, my leopard Loeffler Randall flats are back in stock!

I have been on the hunt for a new watch and Daniel Wellington sent over the prettiest Classic York Lady watch from their collection. It is such a classic and so pretty with the rose gold face and crocodile strap. DW is offering S&S readers 15% off their site with code sequinsandstripes until the end of August. I highly recommend taking advantage!

  1. So true! Especially in Chicago, better to invest in high-quality staples like jackets and boots that are worn the better part of the year. Loving your selections here!

  2. Every single thing on here is making me drool. Thanks, Liz. Thanks a lot. 😉
    Seriously, though, I love these posts! I’ve been needing some inspiration lately and have been anxiously awaiting another post like this from you. You never fail in pointing me in the right direction.

  3. love these! I have that wallet in classic black and love it! It has definitely been able to withstand a lot of wear and tear! 🙂 I hope to get the r&b jeans and a pair of the NB sneakers as some staples for this fall in Ohio 🙂

  4. I think your notes here are so on par, lately I have been trying really hard to just stick to basic pieces that I will have season after season. I have an Annabel Ingall tote and I just love it, highly suggest it. I have had it for a year and use it countless times ever week and still have not tired of it. Such a great style and really well made.
    Oh my gosh that Vince jacket..could that please just magically appear in my closet?!
