10 Items Every Woman Should Own Before 30

As the clock ticks down to the day I turn 30 (not fretting or anything) I’m becoming more of the woman I want to be. Not only emotionally and intellectually, but also when it comes to my personal style. I’m taking more risks, but also being mindful of what is appropriate for every part of my life. Knowing what works for me and what does not work for me. What I should splurge on versus what I can save on. Where and when to buy certain items. Over the past year and half I’ve really been sticking to the ‘less is more’ mindset when it comes to my wardrobe. If I purchase something new I remove something from my closet so that it’s not cluttered with pieces I no longer wear anymore. Editing and maintaining your wardrobe should not be something you do only at the start of Spring, but on a regular basis. Along with editing your wardrobe, you should also have key pieces that are considered your ‘go-to’ timeless items that will help build any look you want. These are the pieces that will help create your style uniform. The ones that will come in handy for that very important meeting, interview, first date or dinner party. I’ve rounded up my top 10 pieces every woman (and me) should own before 30.

 

Leather Love

This is such a relaxed look for me, perfect for the weekend. This is a look I would wear to an outdoor festival, concert or BBQ. Even though this look is head-to-toe neutral, I mixed it up with using different fabrics. In this look Im wearing a satin blazer, jersey knit t-shirt, leather shorts and wedge sneakers. What I love about jersey knit tees is that you can easily knot it to give your basic tee some excitement. A little secret, these leather shorts are actually leather trousers I cut into shorts. I didnt have leather shorts so I thought why not, its summer, you can never have enough shorts. The blazer was something I added last minute to this look, to kind of dress it up a bit. On the flip side, I then dressed it back down by tying it around my waist. Topped off the look with wedge sneakers; leather shorts and wedge sneakers just go well together. I love the versatility of this look.
