Over the past year I have come to learn that I find myself going back to the basics with my wardrobe and then have fun with the accessories. I have a handful of printed apparel that I may occasionally wear, but most of the time I find myself reaching for a basic tee and a classic pair of jeans. I don’t want to sound too boring when I say that, but I like to call it the Jen Aniston look. The woman has her go-to pieces and always looks polished wearing them even when you take a step back and realize they’re just basic items.
With that being said, I am a girl who loves her handbags and most importantly her hats. My hat collection has grown to almost 50 pieces ranging from basic old ball caps to beautiful fedoras like this one from Will & Bear. I am that quintessential “hat girl” and love to take any outfit and top it off with a hat.
When I’m selecting pieces to add to my wardrobe, I’m crazy picky about material and that it has to be comfortable. I cannot stand a stiff shirt or one that is too short in the waist. The other day I popped into Target to browse the new UNIVERSAL THREAD line and almost walked out empty handed until I spotted the classics — a soft white button up, a grey & white basic tee and a mustard yellow tank.
I’m wearing the white button up here with a classic pair of blue jeans from the LOFT and a pair of leather TOMS slip-ons. Since we were out and about playing in Carpinteria and Santa Barbara, I wanted to bring along my new Fossil “Ryder” satchel so it could fit my camera and a few other essentials while still giving me a very classic look. To say that I’m obsessed with the handbag is an understatement. It’s like it was made with me in mind (I’d like to think it was).
I’d love to hear from you, do you purchase fun, statement pieces of clothing that may only last you a season or do you try and create a capsule wardrobe with going back to the basics? I’m really interested in the capsule idea, but I’d have to do A LOT of purging on my Poshmark closet. I’m not opposed to doing it, I’m just wondering if I could really stick to it.
Anyone have advice on this?
Here are all the links to items I’m wearing:
