Have you ever found something you really liked but had to seriously debate with yourself whether or not to spend the money?

Sometimes when I love a piece but it’s more that I want to spend, I’ll be bold and decide to invest in it. But it has to meet a few criteria, first.

I have to think of a variety of ways to use it. If it’s a piece of clothing, I have to be able to think of at LEAST 10 ways I could style it. Most of the clothes I have (probably 90%) are neutrals, so that’s not typically too hard. If it’s a BIG investment, I ask myself what I’m willing to get rid of in order to replace it with this new piece. That way I really know I love it, as I try to only keep things in my closet that I love.

I also agree with myself that I will make sure it gets its use, so I make an attempt to wear it multiple times in a month to make myself feel better.

I did get these busted knee jeans with store credit, but they were more than I’d typically spend on something that I consider “trendy” because of the design. Who knows how long they will be in style?! But I knew they would go with SO MUCH in my closet, so I took the leap.

If you love the olive green, but want a more conservative pair, I also found this pair and this pair that are super similar without the distressing.

I wanted to round up 10 different ways I’ve thought to style these jeans and pass on some style inspo to you if you’re wondering how to get more use out of the olive pants (or something similar) in your closet. Everything featured besides the jeans I already had in my closet, and they’re some of my favorite pieces in my rotation. There are 14 pieces spread through the 10 outfits.

Side note: I just got these black booties recently and am OBSESSED with them. They’re so cute, and the wedge heel makes them really easy to walk in!

What is a piece you’ve invested in that you love?

XO,

Dani

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
