With each addition, my collection has grown, each piece proving to be a timeless investment that withstands the test of time. It’s incredible to me how these designs transition from one season to the next, making them staples in my wardrobe rotation. When it comes to indulging in designer pieces, I’ve adopted a patient approach. If something catches my eye, I’ll hold the thought for several months before biting the bullet. I also tend to wait until the right moment, allowing a particular need to be met whether that’s filling a gap in my wardrobe or satisfying a travel need. Although I wear everything I’ve invested in, there are certainly some pieces that see more wear than others. In this post, I’ll unveil the designer pieces that have been on repeat in my daily life!

I love this bag for elevating more casual fits. Its versatility as a crossbody bag, coupled with the convenience of the additional strap, gives it more mileage than other bags. The size is also just what you’d want for daily wear.
