little weekends make the world go round!

Hey, everybody! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! This weekend was very relaxing and fun for me. I finally took some time for myself to get out of the house and do something different. On Saturday, I went to a 'Power Yoga' class (whatever that's supposed to mean...?), and at first, I was very skeptical. But surprisingly, I found that I really enjoyed it, even though it was super hard (I have never sweated so much in my life!). Later that night, I went out to dinner and bowling with some of my friends. It was nice to do something low-key and get to catch up with everyone. It's the little weekends like this that can really change my outlook and perspective, as well as make me appreciate the simple things in life, like sweating up a storm, good food, and close relationships with friends!

When going out on the town on the weekends, I generally stick with the rule, "The simpler, the better." Therefore, all of my classic essentials are in heavy rotation. I've compiled a list of my ole reliable clothes, shoes, and accessories that I can throw on with any outfit and know it will look great. 

First, my monogrammed necklace...must I say more? It goes with everything, while adding some girly flair to every outfit. Next, my Ralph Lauren oxfords (I have quite a few... they're a guilty pleasure!) are literally the most perfect button down shirt. So easy, effortless, and versatile...simply
the best!

During these fall and winter seasons, my Patagonia vest has definitely been a staple in my wardrobe. It's so warm and cozy, while also providing a great alternative to a fleece or pullover jacket. Following that, my Michael Kors watch has been a must-have in my jewelry collection for a few years now. I'm so happy that I chose a gold and tortoise-shell pattern because it literally goes with anything and everything.

I purchased this Groop Dealz statement necklace earlier this fall and have been hooked ever since. I check their website a few times a week to scope out their cute, new stock. They've got great designer look-alike jewelry for fabulous prices (like super low! :). I wear this one ALL. THE. TIME. It's definitely worth checking out their website!

Can we just take a moment to appreciate these amazing boots (on sale now!!)? This camera, though it's a very nice one, is still not doing those boots justice. From the rich, perfectly worn, brown leather to the gold buckles, these boots can do no wrong. They work with casual jeans and a tee to a dainty blouse and skirt combo.They were a great investment, and I've really loved wearing them over the cold months.

I hope you all enjoyed my weekend escapades and list of classic essentials! Tell me in the comments what your reliable fashion must-haves are. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
