I’m not sure what my deal is but I’ve been on a huge fashion kick! I must say as nice as it is to have warm weather I’m soooo ready for 40 degrees. I miss my beanies and chunky knits! To be honest, I hate dressing for the Summer because I really never know what to wear due to the fact that my ass will be sweaty once step out the door. Like my boy John says, Winter is coming…
CLEANING OUT MY WARDROBE & MAKING A LIST
I have been updating my wardrobe for the A/W time and still have a few pieces that my closet is lacking. I took everything out and made piles of what to keep, replace and donate. I had to really analyze what was left and what was missing. I knew I wanted to add texture and pieces of interest (these can be trendy bits). My color palette normally consists of a lot of black and white but I’ve slowly been dipping into color (grey doesn’t count right?!).
Shopping is a ton of fun but I do the majority of it online, below is a link to today’s video on how I go about picking items. There’s also a bit of a haul which are items I’ve accumulated over the past few months!
1. A GREY WOOL COAT
I want a nice wool coat but I also don’t want it to be covered in lint so a light grey seems like a good choice. I was looking at a few on Aritzia’s site which look amazing, I prefer a more structured coat but it can still be oversized as well.
2. SOME CASHMERE
I totally blame Anna for this, she has got me wanting everything cashmere! Everlane just re-did their entire cashmere sweater collection and they do great basics. I’m just having difficulty choosing a color other than black smh, I can’t promise anything!
3. TWEED OR CHECKED BLAZER
Yea it’s trendy but it also counts as a staple in my eyes. It’s a print that has been around for ages and looks so sharp. I have one that I picked up from Zara but it’s on the thinner side so I’m on the hunt for a good quality blazer. Sezane showed a preview of this Wednesday’s release and I’ve already set a reminder!
4. HIGH-WAISTED STRAIGHT LEG DENIM
I’m still looking for a good pair, I’ve tried Top Shop and the fit just isn’t right… I might have to get these in stores when I go to Brooklyn next month, any suggestions?
Things In My Wardrobe I’m Loving…
5. NEW PLEATED BLACK TRO– USERS[/title] I have worn the shit out of my Everlane Trousers to the point where the knees are grey, so this is actually a replacement purchase. I’ve ordered a pair off Aritzia and hopefully the fit is great, I’ll keep you posted!
