Top 10 things that remain the same with change—go!!

Denim layers forever. I am not gonna lie I have 8ish denim jackets and love them all to bits for different reasons. Will forever be a denim girl (who is also team Canadian tuxedo). I know denim is quite basic and essential to most people’s wardrobe, but it plays such a massive role in my style, so had to make note.

Strike a balance when wearing designer statements. So, I am not a big logo girl/prefer less loud styles—so when it comes to designer, I like things that are more understated. But when I do fancy something a little more bold, like my Chanel dad sandals, I went with the style where the C’s are black and blend in with the shoe. Balance is key for me when adding something a bit fancier to a look. Keeping looks grounded by mixing masculine and feminine as well as elevated things teamed with more laid-back and casual.

Forever fangirl of Totême and Khaite knits, their pieces are works of art and worth the investment. I bought from both brands a few years ago now and they’ve remained close favorites and I know will continue to be part of my wardrobe for a long time.

Celine sunglass girl for life. I have a bevy of other brands but always come back to these. I got my first pair a decade ago.

Mainly neutrals with investments for versatility. I love a fun print or color but when it comes to higher ticket items, I like to select something that can work with the majority of my closet…

& Other Stories is my secret for amazing denim shorts. Agolde for jeans (k this one isn’t a secret but needed to be stated).

Mixing jewelry metals makes life easier and more fun. Ever since my engagement and wedding bands came along, I have been having so much fun mixing metals. Historically a “gold girl” but that’s not the case anymore. I love it all and think mixing is so elegant.

Signature fragrances (yes you can have more than 1): Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede / Velvet Rose & Oud and Byredo Bal D’Afrique.

Converse, and only converse. Once you find a sneaker label you love, stick with it. I have lived In converse for maybe 2 decades now? And will always have them on rotation.

I am with Coco Chanel on this one: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Less is more in my book.
