After having Charlie and working the past few months to get my body back to its pre-baby shape, I made a pact with myself to really pair down the items I own and make sure the new things I did purchase would have a long shelf life in my closet. You may have noticed that my outfits the last 6 months are much simpler than something I may have worn before Charlie. Time for myself is short so I need pieces that are easy to assemble, comfortable, classic and outfits that I won’t second guess when I walk out the door – you know? I’ve discovered that there are a few items that I rely on heavily…
A great pair of jeans. I have short legs so there are two styles that I rely on to give me some length – flares and skinny/straight denim that hits just above my ankle bone. A few of my tried and true favorites are these, these, these, these and these. Also, how amazing do these sound?
A white blouse. My closet is definitely ruled by white tops – boho styles, silk button down, feminine tank, off the shoulder. They are classic and always help me to feel put together. This season and I am loving this, this, this, this, this and this.
A crossbody bag. There is something casual yet chic about a good crossbody bag and I have to thank them for always forcing me to pair down my shit. There are so many great styles for spring including this, this, this, this and this.
Statement sunnies. If you ever need to complete your look, statement sunglasses are the way to go. On days when I look like a hot mess I am so grateful for my sunglasses. My favorites include these, these, these, these, these, these and these.
What are essentials in your closet? Do you have a go-to uniform?
