I'm all about mixing patterns! And, stripes and plaid are a favorite combination of mine. Plus, plaid button up shirts can be worn so many different ways. If you haven't noticed - I like to buy pieces that are easy to switch up (hey! I work hard and like to know I'm going to get my money's worth!). Also, can't go wrong with a striped dress. Tie your plaid shirt around your waist, throw on an army green bomber or pair it with some bright pink tassel heels. One dress, so many cute ways to wear it!

I take this Madewell bag everywhere - in fact, it's my go-to bag when flying because it's super durable and spacious (like it fits all the things I couldn't stuff into my suitcase lol). It's been a great investment and it's timeless too! As are these white converse and this gold Michael Kors watch. I've had the watch for years and I still love to wear it. It can work with a casual outfit or looks just as good with an outfit you wear out or to work. I'm here to help you find pieces that will stay in your wardrobe rotation - you should have pieces you love in your closet! And they're always better when they don't look the same boring way every time you wear them.
