Styles with Staying Power

Hey gals!!! How’s your week going? Mine’s going really well. I’ve been super busy and getting things done. The weather has been insanely good, and I’m here to tell you that influences my mood tremendously. It just puts a little extra pep in my step, and I swear it give me more energy. Maybe Kent and I need to retire somewhere warm? HA! I thought today I’d talk to you about styles with staying power. After all, those are the best styles. I love it when things last from season to season. Don’t you?

THIS top. This top is a spring and summer gem. It’s light weight and the fabric is flowy and drapey. Last year it was all over the place, and I’m starting to see it pop up this year too. It comes in what seems like a bazillion colors, with slight style variations.

This jumpsuit is the perfect piece for travel, errands and just hanging around the house. The Daily Ritual brand is known for their knits. They are great quality, nice and thick, soft and comfortable as all get out.

A long white tank is pretty much a summer essential. I really like this one. It’s a stretchy material and the length is great. Not too short, and not too long. You can pair it with leggings, short and jeans, like I have on here.

Katie and I both got this top last year. It’s another one that comes in a bunch of colors, and they’ve added a sleeveless version and a long sleeve one as well. I love anything with a peplum, and the tiers on this one have the same feel.

This smocked top is what gave me the idea for this post. I bought this one two years ago and absolutely loved it. The same top came out in long sleeve for winter, and 3/4 sleeve for spring. (see that one here) Well imagine my excitement [for you] when I saw it was back in this color and two others for spring and summer. It looks cute untucked or front tucked, and I’ve also worn it tied in a knot in the front.


If you’re looking for a top that is a lot of bang for your buck, then slow your roll right here. This one is made out of really good quality material, and the sash is completely removable and optional, but it looks cute either way. The earrings I always wear with it are also one of my favorite summer pairs. They look adorable with so many summer looks and I get a ton of compliments every single time I wear them.

So what do you think? Are these styles with staying power?


My pick from last weeks link up is Darlene. I love how she styles shift dresses. Just look how cute it looks with a belt. Great idea.

      Tammy, you’d love that jumpsuit. It’s more like wearing pjs. #majorscore

    I hear you on the pleasant weather! We’re finally getting some, too, and it makes such a huge difference. I was anxious to see what you selected, since we share a love of peplums. I need to do some kind of overhaul, still mulling that over. New climate, new wardrobe needs. I ordered a couple of tops recently, but they weren’t flattering. I love the buffalo plaid!

      Oh I’m so glad you’re finally getting some good weather. It’s a real mood booster for sure. XOXO

    Lol, you and I both liked Darlene’s post last week!! #goodtaste I love all these cute pieces, I keep thinking of getting one of those jumpsuits and you know I want to get another one of these tiered tees – the hot pink is next on my list!

      Great minds. I don’t know why we’re surprised, being twins and all that. LOL

    I love tops with staying power. Loving your pink smocked top, and the gingham.

    These tops are all so cute on you! I just love the plaid one and am adding it to my wish list now! I definitely think they all are classic enough and versatile enough to have some serious staying power!

    • May 4, 2020 / 9:10 am

      Oh good. You will look darling in the plaid. Happy Monday! XO

    love them all! I had that jumpsuit in my cart but haven’t purchased it yet! Now that I know that you love it! I think I will go for it!

    • May 4, 2020 / 8:57 am

      Yes, do it. #enabler I know it will be cute on you and you’ll love the feel of it. XO

    Love that jumpsuit on you! I have a loungewear-material jumpsuit myself, and I love that it feels like a onesie but is way more put together than that! haha!

    • May 4, 2020 / 8:57 am

      I need to pull it out and start wearing it again. Yep, an adult onesie is the perfect description!!! XOXO
