Wardrobe Essentials for Women

Here’s the thing: I have way too many clothes. I realize that. Most of us realize that, I think. My problem is that my style is starting to change. No longer do I enjoy running around in XXI clothes (or, heaven forbid, my old obsession for Charlotte Russe). Almost every time I look through my clothes, I have this overwhelming urge to throw everything I own away and start from scratch.

But how do you start from scratch? Thus started my idea to put together a list of essential pieces to buy again if I ever actually get around to starting a fresh wardrobe. Obviously, everything listed here can be altered to fit your style!

Bottoms and tops:

c600x600

dark wash jeans, regular wash jeans, high-waisted black leggings (my favorite), sweat pants, pencil skirt, jean shorts, tan shorts; black tee, white tee, button-up, sweater, zip-up jacket, flannel, blazer, pea coat, hoodie.

Dresses, shoes, socks:

Wardrobe Essentials (dresses, shoes, socks)a night dress, a day dress; nude heels, black heels, brown boots, black boots, athletic shoes, day-to-day tennis shoes, ballet flats, sandals, slippers; knee socks, ankle socks, no-show socks, regular socks, tights.

Winter accessories, bags, & underwear:

Wardrobe Essentials (winter, bags, underwear)an infinity scarf, regular scarf, beanie & gloves; wallet, clutch, black bag, brown bag, overnight bag, backpack; bathing suit; thongs, regular underwear, sports bra, white/tan/black bra (with at least one with a strapless option).

So if you ask me, these are the basic building blocks to any wardrobe! Let me know if there’s a piece you can’t live without.

Let’s play “what’s my new favorite accessory”

New Hipster Frames

These finally came today. Thank you, universe. Even though I feel like I’m looking through a fishbowl (therefore contacts will remain my #1 choice), I have a feeling I might wear glasses a lot more than usual. Also shout out to my just figuring out the whole “sock-bun” thing. I don’t know if I don’t use a long enough sock for my hair, or what, but I feel like it always comes out looking like a messy wrap bun–never nice and neat like Pinterest says. And now, what is possibly my favorite photo of me ever:

big frame hipster glasses with high bun

Join the hipster craze. Buy some big ol’ frames. These frames are Guess. And here’s to a fantastic week! Love you (yes, you).
