I tend to gravitate toward neutral colors which little pops of blush, deep greens and plums for Fall. I am very proud of myself over the past four years that's I've edited my closet to a fewer items, but things that bring me a lot of joy (this book is super helpful...I saw her live in Paris last year and she is darling).
Because if we really think about it, we wear 20 percent of our wardrobes. I totally do this. I love reading fashion blogs, but the idea of having so many cloths, so many options (which if I were gifted or could afford to buy a lot..then of course 🙃) it actually gives me anxiety. Since stopping teaching, I wear jeans, a white/grey/blue/blush t-shirt and cashmere wrap (as of this past weekend!) daily. Every day. I am currently looking for pieces that are not trendy and that I can wear forever, which is key. I don't mind spending money on quality items that will last me 10+ year (like this jacket, which trendy in Charleston is warm and does it's purpose).
Here is my mood board for my closet essentials!
