I’m not great at keeping New Year’s resolutions but one I am going to try and stick with this year is saving more. In order to do that, I’m going to try and focus on buying quality, classic pieces and less stuff for the sake of stuff. So this month outfit posts are going to look a little different. I’ve been pinning tons of images of outfit inspiration and I’m going to try and recreate them with things already in my closet. I’m also going to try and mix and match things in my closet in new, unexpected ways. We’ll see how it goes.
I love how every month Glamour magazine takes a handful of items and shows how to mix it up, so that’s what I tried to do here. I’m taking six of my go-to basics and mixing them up for work, weekends and just running around. You’ve seen these items around here plenty of times (here and here and my favorite, here) and this surely won’t be the last time. But I think having staples like these – a white button-down, a utility vest, a chambray button-down, cropped black pants and skinny jeans – in the closet is a must.
What are your go-to closet items? Is it an accessory, the perfect LBD or a great pair of jeans?
