I wouldn’t say my wardrobe is anywhere near where I want it to be, the more I turn to just the basic pieces, I realize I know exactly the direction I want to take it in. I don’t think I will ever be able to narrow my wardrobe down to the whole capsule wardrobe thing, but I do realize the importance of being able to mix and match what is in my closet.
This outfit definitely consists of just the basics, and some of my favorite basics at that, but throwing this jacket on gives the white blouse and jeans a bit more edge. The last time I wore this jacket it was just with jeans and a tee and switching out the tee for the white blouse gives it a totally different vibe.
Then there are accessories…I’ve admitted many times that I am not a huge accessories person, but it is nice to have a couple pieces that can be mixed in every now and then. The Shopping Bag sent me this tusk necklace and I love the fact that it is simple, but still makes a statement. I’ve never been good at mixing in the big statement necklaces (though I envy those who can) with either casual looks or more dressy looks, but this necklace is definitely one that I can manage both ways. I picture it being a stand out piece against an all black ensemble for a more dressed up look. Plus a pop of gold is always a good idea 😉
