Closet Essentials + GIVEAWAY

Hello Loves,

(Scroll down for giveaway)

As you all know, I have been eagerly clearing out my ridiculously over flowing closet to make way for some more essential and updated pieces. With ‘refilling’ my closet I am looking to invest. Instead of falling into the grips of fast fashion (which don’t get me wrong I will still indulge in now and again), I plan to purchase high quality key pieces. This may be a little pricier initially but they will last. I am looking for classic items. Transitional pieces from season to season, year to year.

Someones ears must have been burning as I was recently contacted by the gorgeous supermum, Karla, founder of the fabulous online haven Sash Boutique. You know how much I love my online shopping! I have now teamed up with Karla to give you my top 3 closet essentials… and a pretty amazing giveaway!

The Leather Jacket:

Can you believe this, I’ve never actually owned a leather jacket! How can this be?? I have no clue… I am however very particular. After raiding Sash Boutique, I saw this gorgeous incredibly soft faux leather Rizzo jacket by Jack. Leather jackets are an absolute essential, something I have been missing out on! A leather jacket can completely amplify an outfit… fancy wearing sweatpants and a white T? Throw on a leather jacket and you will actually look socially acceptable. It’s amazing!!

Check out this leather jacket by clicking HERE.

Use coupon code: Filipaj for 30% off entire purchase, from now until June 30th

The White Shirt:

A white shirt, perfect for any season and occasion. I fell in love with this cotton, polyester, linen blend wrap shirt by Free People. This shirt is so soft, breezy and luxurious. It also has side slits allowing you to wear it in a number of ways. Throw on over the top of a tank like a jacket, wear as the traditional shirt, or tie the front to show off your figure (perfect for high waisted jeans). I am currently wearing this shirt right now, pairing it with Stella McCartney for Adidas yoga pants. The white shirt is probably THE key closet essential.

The Ripped Jeans:

I actually fell in love with this last item the moment I met Karla, she was effortlessly rocking these bad boys. This is also probably the most important closet essential to me… the ripped jeans! Oh boy how I love my ripped jeans. These Free People babies are the IT ripped jeans (they are actually called The It Jeans). They literally look perfect on EVERYONE! They are also yet again, haha, incredibly soft… I wish you could come round right now and feel how soft these beauties are. I feel amazing in them. A perfect pair of ripped jeans, in my opinion, are incredibly sexy and such a transitional piece. Throw them on with a pair of sneakers or a classic heel, they will always look amazing.

    A perfect look from head to toes. Love the leather jacket!

    I completely agree with your closet essentials. I couldn’t imagine my life without a leather jacket and a basic white shirt. This is a fun look. I love your shoes.

    Your leather jacket looks buttery soft, like leather jackets ought to!! Soft and pliant and sexy 🙂 it looks really good with that white top and ripped jeans. Classic Chanel with a touch of rock n roll.

    And speaking of looking all cool and gorgeous, my weekly Project Sister Act Friday link-up is live and on the blog now, Filipa, and I would love for you to come and share this outfit xoxo

    You look beautiful in your basics Filipa <3 We agree with all your basics; foe leather jacket, white blouse and ripped jeans. We actually just filmed a video on it, but I need to edit :/
    I can't believe you just got a foe leather jacket.. but you picked a great cut, that you can wear for years <3

    Hope you have an amazing week 🙂

    You look ah-mazing, girl! I love everything about this outfit, which is so chic with a hint of edge and I’m loving it all! That jacket is so fab, seriously! It’s not very often you see a leather waterfall jacket, so this is definitely a unique piece! I’m also loving those jeans, which look wonderful on you, as well as those fab Nine West shoes, so chic! I also agree with all your essentials here, they really help to fill in any wardrobe with versatile options! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

    Definitely a great way to spruce up a classic look! Love the shoes and accessories you incorporated

    A white tee and pair of jeans are truly essential pieces. I have a bomber jacket but I seldom wear it since it’s really hot from where I live. Anyway, I like how you styled your outfit. Looks like a model off duty look <3

    Totally agree! All three are closet staples, although I have yet to find my perfect leather jacket. I’m on the lookout though 🙂
