Let me start by saying that I am in no way a Fashion Blogger. I LOVE to shop, but a stylist, I am not. I leave that to my many fashion blogger friends whom I adore and gain inspiration from. However, when you find a good thing, or several, you want to share! That’s what this post is…..a sharing post.
Over the past year and a half, I’ve been working on creating a more minimalist wardrobe. I already wear the same 10-15 outfits on a regular basis, why not remove the access and keep only the things that I love that bring me comfort and style? Over this period of downsizing my wardrobe I have slowly come to recognize what my style is. Classy. (with a few graphic tees for work)
My color palette is very simple: black, tans, whites, and blues (denim, navy). I am drawn to these colors and feel more myself when I put an outfit together. This Fall I wanted to bring in a few more pieces to help complete my wardrobe. (I have a rule: when I buy a piece of clothing item, I remove a piece of clothing item. This helps me from having an abundance of items that don’t get worn.)
- Let’s start with the black blazer. I have not owned a blazer in quite some years, but knew it would be an essential piece to completing my outfits. Pair it with a denim shirt, a white blouse, a lightweight camel color sweater, dress up a graphic tee, or even go for the Johnny Cash look and dawn all black. Either one, you can’t ever go wrong with a good quality jacket.
2. The perfect Wide Leg Jean Trouser. Jeans are my LEAST favorite things to shop for, in fact, they rank right up there with swimsuit shopping. (not a fan) But when you find the perfect one for your shape, your style, and your comfort, well, it’s enough to write a blog post about. 😉 I LOVE these jeans from Ann Taylor and currently with the code BIGDEAL you can get 50% off your purchase.
3. This soft knit tunic top was not an item I was on the look out for, however, when I saw it I knew it needed to be apart of my Fall Wardrobe. Wear it with your favorite leggings or jeans and a pair of ankle boots. PERFECT outfit for a trip to the Pumpkin Patch.
4. Ankle Boots are a must for any Fall (even winter) outfit. Choose from any colors and comforts that best fits your style!
