I have to say, it’s been a great week so far. You know how you just have some weeks that go right and good things happen – it’s been one of those! I’m not even talking huge things… just little things, but I think it’s wonderful to recognize and appreciate those. I adore the quote that reads, “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things”. I’d love to know, what’s one thing that’s happened to you this week that made you happy?

When it comes to fashion, I’m really big on ensuring the pieces I buy aren’t going to be out of style in a season. Today, I wanted to share 3 timeless fashion pieces every woman needs and flashback to a few outfits I’ve worn in past seasons which highlight how timeless these pieces are! I am STILL wearing them on the regular now… for example, a statement blazer – I’ve had the one below for a few years and every time I wear it, get compliments and questions about where it’s from. The trends I’ve chosen to highlight are those I believe transcend seasons and will look polished, sophisticated and stylish on almost everyone – not just for now, but also for years to come…

I’d love to hear from YOU. What is one piece you adore and wear season after season?

Beauty: Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer (the best, my makeup lasts ALL day)    |    Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (#3N1 – holy grail of foundations)    |    Beauty Blender Makeup Applicator Sponge    |    Concealer (NC30)    |    bareMinerals Mineral Veil Powder (Illuminating)    |    Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer in Medium    |    Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Blaze    |    Estee Lauder Mascara (the best!)    |    Maison Margiela Replica Perfume in Beach Walk    |    OPI Nail Polish in ‘Cute and Small’ (it’s the PERFECT soft pink)    |    YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in #13 Le Orange

This is one wardrobe staple I am completely addicted to. I have a real thing for statement blazers, because I adore how you can easily throw one on and take your look from casual, to perfectly polished in a second. They are beyond versatile and work with almost anything – I wear mine with everything including jeans, shorts and dresses!

I am such a girly girl, so when all this military style was coming into fashion, I wasn’t sure how I could wear it. But I think the key to fabulous style isn’t following a trend explicitly, it’s about learning what works for you and putting your own stamp on it! I glammed up a chic army green blouse with my favorite leopard print belt and a statement necklace. Of course, a requisite pop of red lipstick (color #13 Le Orange) completes the outfit.

I think we all have those extra special pieces in our wardrobe. For me, it’s this leather jacket! I bought it a few winters ago and couldn’t wait to bring it out again this year. The leather is buttery soft and I’ve never had a jacket this warm. After my experience, I became somewhat obsessed with leather jackets and bought a second one. I believe they are so timeless and although not cheap, a quality piece with a simple, classic cut is absolutely worth investing in.
