About 5 years ago I made the not-so-difficult decision to completely revamp my closet and wardrobe, weeding out all the pieces I no longer actually wore. The most signifiant edit I made was getting rid of any piece that was actually colorful. Insert your gasp here.
Now, if you know me or have ever peeked at my Pinterest “neutral style” Board then you know that I didn’t have to get rid of too many things to make this happen. If you look at my closet today it’s a thoughtful array of grey, white, black, chambray, denim and nude, with the occasional mix of drab green and navy blue. Any print is far and few between and generally comes in the form of a classic stripe or plaid.
Creating a capsule collection was a pretty easy task for me, though I’m always on the hunt for staple pieces to add to my collection. Always. Having a whole wardrobe of pieces that mix and match each other usually makes getting ready a breeze, and with my entrepreneur / mom lifestyle I love piece that can take me from the warehouse to a meeting to carpool without missing a beat.
Because I love to share stories here about things that are vintage and classic, I thought it would be fun to incorporate a little style series to share some of my favorite pieces. Chances are, they’re pieces you’ll be able to keep around season after season, generation after generation.
Love to know some of your favorite wardrobe staples!
