I have been all about adding more ‘wardrobes staples’ to my closet in the past few months.  I guess I have finally realized it is WAY too sad cleaning out my closet every few months and realizing how many ‘trendy’ items I have purchased that barely see the light of day.  I really hate knowing that I have wasted money on items that will only be worn for a season or two.  Thats not to say I won’t still buy some trendy pieces, but I always make sure that I am spending a lot less on them.  I have finally kicked the mindset that it’s silly to spend a lot on simple items like a white t-shirt, a classic cable-knit sweater or a pair of nude pumps because they aren’t ‘fun.’  That thought is RIDICULOUS because those are some of the exact items I SHOULD be splurging on considering they will never go out of style.

This camel coat is something I know I will have for years.  The simple and classic silhouette makes it easy to style.  I paired this with yet another staple, a simple white button down.  This is another piece I have learned to purchase carefully as I have bought so many affordable options that wrinkle with wear and do not hold their shape.  Wrinkled clothes are just the worst!  Who wants to sit around an iron something after every wear? NOT ME!

I hope you are all having an awesome weekend.  We are having a super lazy day…as in I’ve already taken two naps and have barely moved from the bed.  Yesterday was spent getting new brakes on my care (thrilling, I know) and scouting out some more wedding venues.  We may have found the one (eeeeks FINALLY) which I’ll share more about once it is all finalized!

    Jess! I used to go through basic pieces for cheap as well thinking it would save me! I mean, how silly?! Investing in quality pieces like this gorgeous camel coat is so smart and it will last you FOREVER. Plus, it’s neutral and you know I can’t get enough of that 🙂 I can’t wait to see how you style this coat in future posts to come! xoxo
