Now that the end of the year is upon us, I'm taking a critical look at my wish list and finally making some of the pieces mine. Between holiday shopping, celebrating my birthday, and giving myself a pat on the back at the end of the year, I've found more than enough reasons to treat myself to something nice (but honestly, do I even need a reason?).

From the tailored cargo pants that I'm obsessing over to snakeskin ankle boots to ladylike "grandma" bags and much more, there are endless items I'm dreaming of adding to my wardrobe. I won't even lie, a lot of the things I lust for are luxurious (I have expensive taste, what can I say?), which means that nine times out of ten these items linger on my ever-growing wish list without ever making it into my checkout cart—but that all ends here. I've narrowed down my massive wish list and landed on 16 key items that I'm sure will spark joy if I own them.

Ahead, get acquainted with the investment pieces I might just have to buy once and for all.

It's not every day that an It bag this unique is also this functional. 

I'll be making the move to NYC in the dead of winter, and as a fashion girl, I have no plans of purchasing a warm coat that isn't as chic as everything else in my wardrobe.

I'm over being boring, so I've added these to my cart in the hopes of swapping them in for my usual jean outfits.

Rihanna and Kaia Gerber both own this bag. Need I explain further?

From the watercolor print to the ruching, this dress is nothing short of dreamy.

These have somewhat of a cult following among the Who What Wear editors. What can I say? I was influenced by my (very chic) co-workers.

The mock-neck tops from Pleats Please are pretty hard to come by, which is why it's the item that's been on my wish list longer than any others. I've found it here in black, so I'm snapping it up before it has time to slip through my fingers yet again.

Based on the name alone, I have a feeling these are the kind of jeans I can wear every single day.

Comfortable and sleek shoes like these are majorly lacking in my wardrobe right now.

I've spotted this jumpsuit on more street style stars than I can count, and it looks great on each one of them.

I've had my eye on this exclusive hunter green colorway at MatchesFashion all year long. The bag shape is, well, as elegant as the name suggests, and the color makes it feel a bit more special than a standard black handbag.
