Our financial investment strategies are simple: in the long run, we hope to have more gains than losses, a bit of long term security to provide for the ‘what ifs’ and hopefully a dream retirement where we can practice yoga, enjoy the little things and keep the sagging bits from looking too droopy. In similar fashion, we also like to build a wardrobe around a few investment pieces. These are items that will last forever, go with everything and just might take us into retirement. Our two ‘play it safe’ investment pieces that we totally love are these Christian Louboutin Corneille 100mm Nude heels and the Saint Laurent Sunset Silvertone Stamped Croc wallet on a chain.

Nude heels go with everything, make the legs look longer and Christian Louboutin has shades for days to complement a variety of skin tones.
We love that this YSL bag can go cross-body for ‘hands free mommy’, cool girl night out, or a little safety while exploring the city. We do, however, suggest the one shouldered look for a ladylike vibe on a hot date, at the country club and any occasion involving a run in with someone who you’d prefer perceives you as ‘a gal with her shit together’.
Throw on these investment pieces with your favorite jeans, whether they are the all black skinny’s of the season, like the Mothers above, or the ones you’ve lived in for a year. Grab a vintage slub tee (long or short sleeves) and head out for a fun brunch or wild night. Our faves right now are J Crew, Target & Vince.
When you have an event that doesn’t involve a gown, jeans or yoga pants, this is what you wear. Your classic black dress. We love our luxury designer and department stores, but we found this Missoni beauty at the Missoni Outlet in Bicester Village, just outside of London. If you are in London, this place is worthy of a trip and you can take the train straight to the outlets.
