Life is unpredictable and uncertain; there’s no arguing that point. So many choices with so many decisions each day! Sometimes the most practical and un-glamorous items have the biggest effect and help minimize stress. These 10 items will significantly impact your daily life and hopefully save time and eliminate anxiety in your routine.
I firmly believe there’s a jean for every occasion and will never stop searching for the perfect jean. Like the unicorn, I know they exist. I just haven’t found them yet. I have come close though, and every girl needs a pair of jeans that she can grab and put on without a second thought. This pair above by AGOLDE is a classic cut and pairs well with any top or shoes and they’re 30% off right now.
A white tee is an essential workhorse in any versatile wardrobe. I have different versions of the white tee in my drawer but the one I reach for most often is this one by Rag and Bone. I like that the neck line hugs the smallest part of your neck/shoulder area. It eliminates distractions so the focus is on layered necklaces, statement earrings or an amazing jacket. It’s also the perfect length to half tuck or leave untucked without looking sloppy. I bought three so I always have one available to grab and throw on.
One of the most indulgent and satisfying things about staying at a luxury hotel is wrapping yourself in a beautiful soft fluffy towel after a long soak in the tub. You may not be able to duplicate the zen ambiance of the resort bathroom but you can replicate the towels. These Wamsutta Collection towels are beautifully thick and amazingly soft. The main problem I had with so many different towels I’ve tried is that they felt soft in the store but once the fabric treatment washed off they were scratchy and stiff or just meh to the touch. These Wamsutta towels only get softer after each wash. I kid you not, I’ve had guests take pictures of the label so they could buy them when they got home!
Who doesn’t want to bring the luxury hotel experience home with you? The towels are only part of it. What you really need are the crisp, soft bedsheets that are so indulgent to slip into which almost guarantees a restful night’s sleep. I know it seems ridiculous to splurge on towels and sheets. However, I promise you, you won’t regret it. You use these items every day of your existence and they can bring such tactile and visual pleasure to your life. These Wamsutta Hotel bedsheets won’t disappoint.
If you’re always frustrated because it’s such an effort to chop or cut your food, chances are you won’t be inspired to cook. The one item you use every day in the kitchen are your knives. This set of knives may seem expensive but it will simplify your life in the kitchen, and if you take care of them, they will last a lifetime.
Sexy lacy bras are great in theory but the nude bra is the little engine that could of the bra world. This Natori feathers underwire bra looks great under t shirts or filmy silk blouses and the lace detailing adds a little sexy to this workhorse. It does run small, so size up a cup size, and buy two so you can rotate them. They last longer when you give the elastic a chance to return to its normal state.
Again, a workhorse in your lingerie drawer. These Natori bliss perfection underwear are incredibly soft and leave no panty line even under your workout gear. Don’t be put off by the one size fits all. It seems really weird but they fit to perfection. Buy these in multiples so you’re never looking for a pair to wear under your white jeans.
Nothing can pull together an outfit like an amazing shoe and the slide is the easiest and most comfortable to wear. Plus, there’s a great laid back vibe with these; like you just slipped them on and ran out of the house. Any of these shoes will pull together jeans and a t shirt in an instant. There’s definitely a big gulp that comes with purchasing these Manolo Blahnik Maysale slides, but if you can do it, you will never regret it. The Balenciaga knife mule is another great option. I’ve written about them here. I also have my eye on these Gianvito Rossi slides and they’re 70% off!
If you’re a heavy user or just have low-battery anxiety you need this iPhone/ipad charger. It will give your phone a full charge in 45 minutes or so and an iPad in 2 1/2-3 hours. It’s a game changer. Don’t forget that you need to buy the cord with it.
These glass container will up your leftover game. They will streamline your storage needs and make it quick and easy to consolidate and store away leftovers for the next meal. They stack easily and look so organized in the cabinet or refrigerator.
