30 Items I Couldn't Live Without in Spring 2019

If there’s one thing I’ve learned as an adult, it’s to invest in things I’ll actually USE. So when I say I can’t live without these 30 items, I mean it.

Now that I’m a married 25-year-old – living on self-employment and freelance funding – I try to make every penny count. Up until this month, I’d put myself on a no-shopping ban for spring. I only recently invested in a couple of pieces because I sold some of my other clothing, so I basically just swapped out items. Everything that I already had in my closet was being put to extra good use. I think I’ve found more ways to style a basic novelty tee than I even knew existed!

All that being said, I figured it would be fun to share with all of you the items from my closet, beauty cabinet, and home that I’ve gotten the most use out of through these spring months. From the best setting spray I’ve ever used to my favorite purses, it’s all included!

      I got a phone case from the same company, Nunuco, for my last phone – and it was perfect. So when I upgraded, I knew I had to get another! I got two for good measure haha. They’re CUTE and UNIQUE but also FUNCTIONAL. They have a grippy side so I don’t drop my phone!
