Every so often, when browsing clothes online, I come across something GOOD.
Like, REALLY GOOD.
Something that ticks all my boxes — quality + design + price. Something that feels timeless and can last for years, not just seasons.
These special, select items will make it onto my wish list — but as much as I love them, I may not buy them anytime soon due to my budget.
Which means, you might not end up seeing them on the blog at all.
Or, if you do see them on the blog, they may be almost entirely sold out at that point.
So I thought it would be nice to start sharing these finds the moment I discover them so that, if they fit a need in your wardrobe, you can shop them while they are still in stock.
Below, you’ll find 5 pieces that have caught my eye this week. Have a look! If you see something you like, you can shop it and support my blog by using the affiliate links below.
I’ve been looking for a good pair of wide leg sporty pants for a long time now. Many of the styles I find have just a little too much going on, with logos or too many pockets or contrasting colors — but I love that these are perfectly minimal with subtle little pockets on the side. That light color is just right for spring too!
Plus, when I’m shopping online and can’t try them on, I always feel more confident if the pants have an elastic waist or a drawstring because the fit is adjustable. I think they would look cool with the waistband rolled down, too.
I can’t decide whether the mini size or the regular size would fit my needs best, but I just know I love this bag. No embellishments, just an understated sculptural shape.
I’ve been eyeing the Little Liffner Tulip Tote for years now, but the price keeps stopping me. To me, this Cuyana tote has a similar feel — the soft, creamy brown feels similar to Little Liffner’s Taupe colorway that I just love.
Okay, we may be in the depths of winter, but a beautiful swimsuit like this (for under $50!) is something to go ahead and scoop up before everyone else starts shopping for swimwear.
Being in the sun is incredibly healing to me and in the summer, I swim almost daily. Don’t worry, I always wear sunscreen and a hat. Even still, some tan lines are inevitable and I like that I don’t have to worry about tan lines at all with this set. (Although it does come with removable straps!)
That longline bandeau top — gorgeous! I like to think that I could get away with wearing the top with some high waisted trousers and sneakers during the day, too. It gives me St. Agni vibes — my favorite minimalist Australian brand.
Sambas may be the “it” shoe right now, but I actually prefer Forums. They’re similar to the New Balance 550, but a whole lot easier to find. This color combo is EVERYTHING. That off-white gives ’em a vintage vibe.
Plus, since the Forums aren’t the “it” shoe of the moment, I like to think that makes them a little more timeless. That’s my little hack for building a wardrobe that transcends trends (well, hopefully anyway) — find something that’s adjacent to the “it” item, but not the “it” item itself. Then when the “it” item inevitably falls out of favor, it doesn’t matter because you’re not wearing it anyway.
Okay, I’m going to stop saying “it” now.
I haven’t ordered anything from Missoma yet, but I hear such good things. These chubby medium hoops REALLY caught my eye. The feel sculptural and minimal. I wear both gold and silver jewelry (often at the same time) but I loooove these in silver.
