For many years I have cleaned out our closets around the holidays. I used to be a one season wonder kind of girl. If I had described my wardrobe I wanted to latest most trendy pieces, but with as complicated as this year has been it has caused me to step back and take a look at what I really value and what is just a passing fancy. We have downsized and simplified in as many areas as we can and my closet has been one of those things.
I am learning to fill my closet with high quality classical and transitional pieces that will hold up all year long. These are my top 5 picks.
1. Cozy Sweaters: Eesome. Every woman needs a light weight sweater that will work for her in Winter, Spring, and Fall. Like this Black Twist Back Sweater in classic black.
2. Booties: A Ryder
The magical thing about booties is that they can be worn with anything. Skirts, leggings, jeans, it doesn't matter they all work! Like these gorgeous Avery's from A Ryder Girl.
3. Light weight jacket: Special A
This jacket from Special A isn't just high quality it's also the perfect color for any season. Just a bit oversized so you can easily wear it over a sweater or hoodie but all will highlight a print or your favorite graphic tee. What's not to love?
4. Cardigan Queen: Kori America
Cardigans really are a girls best friend. I still have some in my closet from college. We won't talk about how long ago that was... This classic grey waffle knit cardigan from Kori America is giving us all the swoons. You can wear it over a blouse like this Henley or your favorite graphic tee shirt, no effort needed.
5. Slip on loafer: Gypsy Jazz
No matter what the season these loafers from Gypsy Jazz will have your feet smiling. Extra thick memory foam insoles that make your feet sigh with relief and they wash up beautifully.
