basic wardrobe...





Taking a cue from Simple Home, i'd also like to simplify my wardrobe... since moving into my new place last July, my closet has gotten a little messy. I just love the feeling of clearing it all out and surveying what new basics i'd like to add. Of course, I wish I had an endless budget... but for now it's nice to to add just a few new pieces and give the clothing I find myself not wearing anymore to charity...

Some things i'd like to add:
A fitted black blazer...
Some white, black, & navy v-neck tees...
A new pair of dark, skinny jeans...
A few pieces of delicate gold jewelry...
A cream-coloured short trench...
A dusty-rose ribbed tank...

What basics would you like to add?

nude high heels - as high as you can stand; they go w/everything

i'm totally with you on the basics. i'm a big advocate of less is more. love the woman's hair in the bottom photo. oh, and i would add striped t's to the list - they're timeless.

I've been wanting a fitted black blazer too!

For v-neck tees, I highly recommend these from J.Crew - http://bit.ly/4ySYO4. I've never bought the same thing in multiple colors until I found these.

You should add these to your "most coveted" list so you focus on getting these items instead of impulse purchases! I just wrote about this:

I would add a natural color scarf made of cashmere or alpaca for winter as well as a Borsalino hat with a bow on the side :-)

Anon - Nude heels! How could I forget? That a perfect item to add to the list...

Jessica - Ahh... I am always on the hunt for the perfect striped tee... has to have stripes in the perfect width and colour!

Sasha - I was JUST looking at those yesterday! Glad to hear they're that great!... I may pick up one to try out...

Kena - So true... i'm off to read your post next!

Anabel - Nothing better than a perfectly, soft scarf... which I so need in the chilly office...

Danielle said...

ditto on the nude heels! and I'm also in desperate need of some rugged, slightly worn, flat brown boots!

I dare say, the Joe fresh tees are amazing. I just size up and they're super comfy.
My friend works for Joe and, actually, she met you and told m about your blog!

A white dress shirt that fits like a dream...let the hunt begin! :)

I always admire people who can make a white button-down so chic, but to me whenever I try to put one on I get school uniform flashbacks!

hurray for basics! :)

Daniella said...

Jen Sc - Do you mean Anna? She's friends with Amanda? That's so funny! I'm glad you dropped by...

Mandy - A white dress shirt is a good one too... but they always look odd on me for some reason, lol...

Jen Sc said...

Yep! It's Anna! She does the little boys line of clothing! She's a great friend of mine! I'll be staying at her place Wed-Thursday while I work at North York Gen. Hospital for a year!
Sometimes, it's such a small world!
And I LOVE your blog! Fabulous and inspiring!
