I’ve been doing my best to closet purge. I’ve really been thinking about every purchase I make; trying to decide if I’ll wear it often enough to buy it. When I buy an item I like to think about all the different ways I can wear it and what I already have that I can pair with it. I belong to the Kate Middleton school of fashion; reuse, reuse, reuse.
Because of this practice, I end up with a lot of neutrals. I love neutrals. I think they are incredibly classic and you can easily mix and match them to create countless outfits. I’ve got a block of black, tan, grey and white. I do have some bold pieces, but for the most part they are relatively plain – I don’t have too many patterns.
This outfit is an example of my neutrals collection. The black boots pants and tank are all what I would call staples. The sweater is also incredibly neutral; I’ve paired it with many different things and have even worn it over dresses. It’s from my sister’s sister-in-law’s (follow me?) clothing line Trybe. It was gifted from my sister and I just adore it.
The purse I just picked up from amazon. I wanted to get a small crossbody bag that I could take with me while traveling. It’s much bigger than I expected (I didn’t read the dimensions…), but I really love it. I’ve decided to use it for everyday. It’s got a ton of pockets. It was $12.68 and it’s real leather. I might order a few more colors.
