And Now, My 10 Coolest Buys of 2019 (So Far)

It’s my job to scour high and low for the most-desirable, bound-to-sell-out new fashion items on the market—and there’s nothing that gives me more pleasure than sharing these finds with you, dear readers. But this also means I tend to shop a lot. Once I spot an item that excites me—be it a versatile basic I know I’ll wear on repeat or a bold statement piece that is sure to turn heads—I find it pretty darn hard to exercise restraint. (Luckily, I purge my closet as much as I buy, otherwise my poor husband would seriously have no space in the closet at all.)

I’m also trying to be more thoughtful and conscious of my spending habits and fashion choices. Don’t get me wrong; I still love a great of-the-moment Zara or H&M find, but I’m taking the time to think about the longevity and quality of pieces before I immediately add to cart—opting to invest in jeans, dresses, and tops that I know will last me a lifetime. Today, I’m sharing some of my best fashion buys of the year so far. From trendier pieces to really simple staple items, these are my personal picks I’ve been wearing and loving. Scroll below for a peek.

For all my morning, afternoon, and evening situations. It’s such a pretty print, it has a flattering neckline, and the slit gives it a modern flair. (I’d recommend wearing a strapless bra with this one due to the wider neckline). 
Another floral dress for the win! I’ve seen this one on some of my favorite fashion muses, and it looks super pretty in photos and IRL. It also comes in a red hue. I actually think the lavender shade is rather versatile and perfect for the warm season ahead. The dress is made of silk, is super flattering, and well-suited for fancy soirées with the right shoes and accessories. Buy a nude slip to wear underneath as the material is slightly sheer.
This season I opted for a great quality, modern silhouette that is ribbed and has a slightly higher neckline by one of my favorite new brands, The Range. Its minimalist tops are amazing quality and can easily be dressed up or down.
The black pair look great with jeans and skirts alike for a chic day-to-night look.
The white pair look great with dresses, jeans, or a cool pair of khakis.
This is unquestionably my go-to weekend top for brunches, beach days, early evening drinks, and everything in between.
They sit at the perfect height on the waist and have an ideal straight-leg fit. 
The top looks so good with crisp white jeans. I’m wearing the Joan Crop by J Brand in this picture.
This silvery slip skirt looks way more expensive than it actually is.
I’m wearing my cool flatform Tevas with a Réalisation Par leopard print midi skirt and Madewell tee.
I like the opposing look of a polished blazer paired with a bohemian shell chocker necklace. It’s a great way of integrating the trend into your look during the work week. The added pendant necklaces also give it a cool-girl touch. I’m wearing the shell necklace with a Maje pendant and pink Theory blazer. 
This anklet looks so cool with sandals, sneakers, and heels alike. I’m sporting by ballerina-meets-boho look with Joy Lab leggings.

Up next, the nine Zara buys that earn me endless compliments.
