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.
