I don’t know if y’all have figured this by now about me….I like lists. I wanted to share with you my top five pieces that have been in heavy rotation this season for me. They are all super affordable! Also they have washed and worn extremely well.
#1. Zara Riding Leggings
I am not joking when I say order these right now. Order them in navy and black….maybe even order two pairs of black and put one aside for next season. The price point is unbelievable! Like hello $35 and free shipping. They are thick and suck you in perfectly. The waistband comes up a little higher so no muffin top. It has a side riding panel and gold zippers at the top. I wear them with ballet flats, low pumps and they look absolutely perfect with boots. My sister was lusting over them and they came back up on their website. Order them I promise you will not regret it. Sizing Guide…..I got a size small they look tiny when you hold them up but they really stretch and compress you in.

# 2 Nine West Ballet Flats
You know when you get a pair of ballet flats and you’re all excited because they are flat and should be comfortable? Instead they rub the back of your heels and give you blisters? Or like my Tory Burch ones that squeezed the back of my heel so badly that my heel would be numb by the end of the day. I found these ballet flats at TJ Maxx they were $29.99. They have a really pretty pointed toe and are beyond comfortable. Mine have black rhinestones on the back of the heel. The style is called Smile at Me. I think they are old I can’t find them online but here is an exact dupe minus the sparkles. Best part they are on sale score! Get them I promise you will love them. I literally wear mine 4 times a week. They are so comfortable and there was no breaking in period.
Continuing on with my post from yesterday about how I can now only online shop at Forever 21….I got this sweater when it was still August here in Florida because I knew the trends with oversized sweaters like this were here to stay (at least that is what Pinterest told me). I bought it and sent it one of my girlfriends at work and told her to buy it even though it was still 95 degrees out. We were both very happy because the next day it was sold out. This one is very similar. It has long almost kimono like sleeves and you can literally throw it over anything. I get stopped at least three times a day when I wear it. I also started cinching it with a thin belt (because Pinterest showed me how). I also really like this and this as well.
# 4 Dark Gray Skinnies
I’m sure my office is sick of me wearing these. I swear I have a few pairs. I wear them with the above ballet flats, or these pumps mentioned in this post, or tucked into boots. I found my ultimate pair at TJMaxx on clearance (I had one of those total “hits” days a few months back). They are by BlankNYC. They run true to size, I got a 28 in the them and they fit pretty standard. Keep an eye out for them at your TJMaxx/Marshalls. On clearance they were $29. I could only find them so far online for full price but they had a lot of TJ’s. Apparently the style is “spray on”….I don’t know all about that. I can you that I can breathe in them and they are appropriate for work. I put a thin cuff at the bottom when wearing them with heels. I also have two pairs from Forever 21 which have really kept their shape and don’t bag out after extended periods of wear. Here is the link to the style…naturally no gray online…I found mine in the store…it was a miracle and they were on the clearance rack. However they come in a million other colors.
# 5 Blazer from H&M
Don’t get me started on what a cluster that store is. This is the only thing I have bought from there because I lasted 3 minutes in the store before I had a panic attack. Maybe other stores are better but my local one is like total overload with people, clothes and very narrow pathways. Also the dressing rooms were a wreck. I tried this on in a mirror by the checkout line. I wear it all.the.time. I travel with it, crush it in a suitcase and then wash it in my standard washing machine. I let it hang dry and it’s good as new. It holds its structure really well and I’ve had it for two seasons and still looks really good. Hello amazing price point! You may want to get two colors. I have the navy and I wear it with everything. I roll the sleeves up and it has a cute stripped pattern underneath. Size Guide. I ordered a size 4. It fits snug. I would recommend going up one size if you want to wear thicker pieces underneath it.
One Splurge If You Can Swing It- Toms Desert Booties
I could go into a dissertation about these booties. It involved stalking down some girl in Vegas who was wearing them and searching every Nordstroms and Toms Distributor but they were sold out last season. The minute I got the email from Toms they were back…I ordered them….in August…..and they sat in my closet…until November. They are so comfortable. I wore them all day on Gaparilla and no problems. Perfect wedge heel. I wear them with the above skinnies and riding pants. I have seen them with dresses….haven’t done that but trust me you will love them. I have patients stopping me mid sentence to ask me about them. You will not regret it. Of course this season they made plenty so you do need to worry about backorders….or stalking the poor people at Nordstroms…I think they are scared of me.
Well there you have it! My top 5ish things in my closet on serious rotation. Do you have any these similar ones? What has been your go to pieces this season? Share with me! Hope you have a great day! xoxoxooxoxo
