Fashion Basics: Welcome to My Closet

Friday, March 27, 2015

Another Friday and I am ready for the weekend! Next week is our spring break and although I will not be going out of town I am ready for a break. I am working for a few days but the office will be a little quiet those days and it has got me thinking about going back to the basics. So I thought I would share with you all some of my fashion staples from my closet. I will say my closet is a hot mess these days. I have added so much to it since starting this blog (sorry to my husband Derek) and it is getting a little cramped. Once the weather turns more Spring-like around here I will do some Spring cleaning.

Jeans: First and foremost for me is a pair of go-to skinny jeans. I am a big fan of the skinny. As much I would love to be the kind of girl that could pull off boyfriend jeans, that does not work for me. I am not Chelsea of the Zipped blog. Right now I am obsessed with the Legging Jeans from Gap. I wear them constantly.

Tee shirts: Although I love me some fancy clothes fo sho, you cannot beat a comfy tee. They are just so versatile. I love to dress them up or down depending on my mood. It is easy to do, either pair it with a great statement necklace and heels to dress up , or jeans and flats to dress down. Always a must. Target and J.Crew Factory are my go-to places.

Flowy tops: I have learned over the years that a forgiving top does wonders for my self-esteem and overall look :) I cannot get enough of chiffon or polyester threads. I will say, the top has to have some structure to it otherwise it looks like a maternity top. Again I frequent Target, or local boutiques like Primp or Primrose Park for my go-tos.

Shoes: I am going to categorize these under ankle boots, flats and heels. They are too diverse I cannot decide. I wear a lot of ankle boots and flats for work. So it is critical that they are not only fashionable, but functional. I typically get these at Target (seeing a trend?) because they are fashion forward, inexpensive and I will not feel guilty if they get beat up. The ankle boots can be flat or heeled, but if they have a heel they need to be chunky so they are more stable.

For high heels, my blog title speaks for itself, I am drawn to blacks and neutrals. I like my clothes to be versatile so I always think of the entire contents of my closet before I purchase. Needless to say, I have several pairs of black heels in my closet. I frequent DSW or Macy's when looking for new sky high pumps.

Statement Necklace: I have posted before about my obsession with necklaces. I would be embarrassed about it if I did not love them so much. I think I cannot own enough. I love what a statement necklace can do for an outfit. It can change a casual outfit into dressy, or simply amp up an already classy ensemble. Statements just take everything ot hte next level. Honestly, 80% of my current necklaces are from Primp boutique. They have the greatest collection of necklaces ever. The rest are from Target, no joke.
