The Holy Grails: Part Two

We all have our "Holy Grail" items--the things that we'll buy entire shelves of if they're ever discontinued.  Whether they be cult favorites or new discoveries, it's always wonderful to find that one product that makes life a little bit easier.  I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you, but turns out that I really love buying stuff and there were a few too many to fit all into one post.  This is Part 2.  Scroll down to the next post for Part 1!

Aerie Brooke Bra
I worked at Aerie one summer in college, discovered this bra, and never looked back.  This bra is everything.  It gives you just enough push-up, is extremely comfortable, and doesn't give you bra-outlines in tee shirts.  My friend Julia and I are obsessed with these bras.  Right now, all bras at Aerie are only $20, so now is the perfect time to stock up!

Tory Burch Reva Flats
These flats are like the Energizer Bunny--they just keep going and going.  I'm very hard on my shoes and my flats look just as nice as the day I bought them.  I also found my pair at Nordstrom Rack, which ended up saving me a ton of money.  Funny story, I decided that the best way to get the most out of these flats was to get a neutral color... So I bought the leopard print pair.  No regrets.

Hunter Rain Boots
First of all, these rain boots are on MAJOR SALE RIGHT NOW.  I've linked to the sale above.  Sometimes I feel like these boots never go on sale, so the fact that they're 70% off right now is insane.  These boots are classics and unlike some others I've had, never leak and get your feet all wet.  It's currently what I call the "rainy season" in Hilton Head, so these boots have paid for themselves several times over by keeping me warm and dry.

Tory Burch Riding Boots
I know this is the second pair of Tory Burch shoes on this list, but Tory Burch makes some seriously good shoes, y'all!  This is another pair of shoes where if you wait and stalk, you won't have to pay full price.  That being said, I know folks who have owned these boots for years and years.  While they're definitely an investment piece, they'll last you as long as you take care of them.

Old Navy Leggings
Comfortable, completely transparent, definitely made for working out... Apparently this is the trifecta to creating the perfect legging.  I don't think I've actually ever worn these leggings for working out but daaaaaaang they look good under a chunky sweater.

Lilly Pulitzer Worth It Handbag
I seriously debated including this bag, since it's very difficult to find still on sale.  But the world needs to know how great Lilly Pulitzer leather products are!  I bought my clutch about a year ago and have legitimately used it three or four times a week since.  It's held up in the most amazing way.  The clutch also originally cost around $200, which really is a great deal for a leather handbag with sturdy hardware.  If you have the chance to buy leather goods from Lilly, get them!  Their shoes are amazing as well.

Ray Ban Tortoiseshell Wayfarers
These are the ultimate pair of sunglasses.  They're sturdy, timeless, and fun.  I may someday add to my sunglasses collection, but for the foreseeable future, these are the only pair I see myself needing.
