Top 5 Wardrobe Essentials
A classic white button-down shirt. My go-to brand offers a stellar option for an affordable price point. Style it underneath a dress or layer with cardigans, sweaters and other blazers. White button-downs are extremely versatile!
The perfect pair of denim. My go-to jeans are this style, which also come in plus and petite sizes. Beyond loving the wash of the jeans, the length works perfectly on me. Also, the fabric has a lot of stretch, which takes me from day to night.

Last but certainly not least, it would be remiss of me not to talk about the Sail to Sable x Style Charade collection. You’ll always find me packed with at least one or two Charlotte dresses, an Anne dress and the new Gwen Lounge Set.
