I’ve been cleaning out my closet, and I’ve realized that I wear a lot of the same things over and over again. While I don’t think I would ever enjoy living with a minimalist wardrobe of, say, 10 pieces, I do think it is important to recognize the pieces you reach for most often and keep those pieces in mind when you shop. So, here’s a look at some of my go-to pieces.
Things I Wear All the Time
Cat eye glasses. I posted about these BonLook Dolled Up cat eye glasses when I bought them last year, and they pretty much live on my face. Sure, I wear contacts during the day, but I’m always relieved when I pop them out and put on these glasses.
Denim and chambray. A few years ago I would have been horrified by the thought of wearing denim and chambray together, but now this is a go-to combination for me. Even if I’m not wearing them together, the Old Navy chambray shirt and Gap skinny jeans are worn at least once a week.
Joggers. At first I didn’t like the look of joggers, but now they are the pants I wear when I want to wear sweats but don’t want to look that lazy. I’m not sure that joggers look that much more put together than sweat pants, but I tell myself they do. These Gap joggers are usually paired with a plaid shirt or the above mentioned chambray shirt.
Black boots. I love boots, especially in winter, and I naturally gravitate to black. For years, my go-to winter shoes have been Ugg boots, but when my last pair ripped next to the seam (not on the seam, which would have been an easy fix), I decided to try a new brand and landed on the Kirkland Shearling Buckle Boot. Trying on shoes at Costco is far from a luxury experience, but $30 for sheepskin boots is hard to beat. These boots have found a home on my feet.
I, also, wear the Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Booties (c/o Shopbop) a lot. These booties are the ones I usually grab for auditions and nights out. I like the height they give me and how they look great with pants and skirts.
Bucket bag. I love Rebecca Minkoff bags, and the Dexter Bucket Bag (c/o Shopbop) has gotten a lot of wear and still looks great. Unlike the usual bucket bag with a drawstring closure, this bag simply snaps shut. Plus, it has plenty of pockets.
What are the things you wear all the time?
