Wardrobe Essentials

Full disclosure time!  I have none of these staples.  Either that, or I have the shittier version that should not see the light of day (but does).  In short, I am not going to share a picture of the inside of my closet.  It’s too shameful, eyes will burn, etc.    

This all harkens back to the Lululemon v. American Eagle yoga pants debate that I have been having with myself since the dawn of time.  Ideally, I would open up my walk in closet, and it would look like the above.  But in that world, I would also be taller. 
This is not to say I don’t shop, don’t get me wrong, but I have clearly been buying all the wrong things – like 4 sets of floral jeggings or something.  I don’t mean for this to be mean spirited.  I drool over at polyvore like everyone else, and then I work with what I have.

    This is a great guide to wardrobe basics but I have to agree. I have about 6 of these items and maybe 3 are quality. Maybe we need to go shopping. Or get rich and hire a stylist.

    I love this post. I bookmarked this set and keep going back to it. Maybe I'll really clean out my closet and start over again with these items. Would make my life easier (and empty my bank account). Oh well…I can dream a little.

    I thought of it like a nice template. In the end, I just hate wasting time deciding what to wear. We need to adopt the European lifestyle and just repeat outfits – if it looked good yesterday, it will look just as chic today!
