If you were to look through my wardrobe you’d notice a few things: I love bright colors, stripes, sandals and dresses. You would also notice that when I find something I like, I end up buying it in pretty much every color. I love to get all dolled up and wear fancy clothes, but more often than not I’m wearing comfy clothes that I can bum around in, while still looking respectable. Below are the items that have become absolute essentials in my wardrobe. And by essentials I mean I have more multiples than I should admit. Regardless, these staples are comfortable, cute and classy, and I don’t think I could live without them, and neither should you!
1. Tissue V-neck tee from J. Crew / 2. Kate Spade studs / 3. Long sleeve painter’s tee from J. Crew / 4. 5″ J. Crew jean shorts with cuff / 5. Tory Burch cardigan sweater / 6. 3″ Chino Shorts from J. Crew / 7. Tory Burch flip-flops / 8. Tory Burch sandals

I love your style!
Gah, I was hoping to find some gorgeous striped tees here after reading the first few lines..! You wouldn't BELIEVE how hard it is to find a blue and white striped shirt over here that
a) doesn't have that weird short in front, long in the back style
b) isn't too white; I look like my own ghost in that color
and c) fits my 6'1'' frame.
It's definitely a #firstworldproblem, but a problem nevertheless!
Rant over, I definitely love your style, though! Cute but relaxed, perfect combo 🙂
Dear Life, We Need To Talk
Stumbled across your blog and I love it! Read your interview with everygirl and I'm inspired by your heart and your style! Thank you for doing what you do 🙂 Looking forward to following along with you!
These are definitely some of my essentials too! I love the J.Crew shorts for summer, the Tory Burch flops are perfect for the beach or pool, and I'm pretty sure I live in my Kate Spade studs. Loving all of these! Looking forward to following along with you.
Love this post! Would you ever do a post on work out/running essentials. Like what you always keep in your gym bag and what bag you use for a gym bag! Looking for a cuter alternative to an old nike bag.
Love your blog 🙂
Thanks Virginia! That is a great idea and I'll definitely write a post about that! Thanks for reading…and until I get a chance to creat that post check out this workout related post from a few months back: http://www.lifewithadashofwhimsy.com/2013/12/time-for-detoxand-goal.html
I absolutely love striped shirts too Johanna! Here in the US I often rely on J.Crew or Old Navy for them, not sure about where to find good ones in Germany though!
Soooo……the workout wear post will just be a link to LuLu??
Haha basically…yes. I love my lulu but I do have some other pieces in mind for this. Stay tuned!
