Hello all you lovely people. Apologies for taking a break yesterday- we were doing a lot of work on the site. But today we’re back and I wanted to share some of my go-to pieces in my closet.

I am one of those people with way too many clothes. As you know, Emily and I both keep everything, so I am the type to keep something in hopes that it will fit again or I will figure out how to update it in a new outfit. Usually I end up being glad I kept things, and I like having as many options as possible. But now that I am living at Anthony’s in one room with one closet and limited space, I have brought over only my essentials to tuck into any corner I can find. Here are some pieces I can’t live without:

My weight fluctuates pretty often so right now flowy tops are the most flattering, since I am enjoying food very much right now and am round and happy. :) Having sleeves that accentuate my shoulders seems to balance out my curves. Or that’s the conclusion I’ve come to- this isn’t an exact science or anything. Ha.

I was so excited when this trend came around. So comfortable! And you can do so much with them. These were originally supposed to be just normal jeans, but once I brought them home from the thrift store and wore them for a while they got pretty baggy in the legs. Voila! I had boyfriend jeans without even meaning to.

Something about the structure this adds to an outfit makes it so useful. If I’m wearing a flowy top and boyfriend jeans, this adds the lines angles to make the outfit less jellyfishy (that’s a word I just used…deal with it). With dark jeans, a sparkly top and heels, this adds a little masculine vibe to a sparkly and girly outfit. It just goes with everything- I love the dark grey color.

It’s still slightly chilly (for California standards) so a scarf is great to add something fun to an outfit while staying warm. I got the leopard one at a dollar store and Anthony’s mom gave me the white one for Christmas. I love the airy white material and the gold accents! Makes me feel fancy and feminine.

A must have for me since I can remember. I love these with heels or ankle boots, and I love the detail on the ankle:

I also have some things on my wishlist:

  • Ripped jeans
  • Replacements for my bright yellow flats that died (RIP)
  • Studded flat sandals
  • Bright heels
  • A black romper
  • Black knee-high socks

Why are most of those shoes? Sigh. I have a problem.

What is your favorite piece in your closet? What is your guilty pleasure? Mine is obviously hoarding shoes.

    These are legit….I would probably replace boyfriend jeans with loose cardigans and motorcycle jacket for casual blazer but in theory…these staples are on point

      Thanks Nina! I am a huge fan of loose cardigans and blazers too… I just need to replace my old ones that I’m not as in love with anymore :)
