Details: Cupshe ‘Cup of Cozy’ casual sweater, here |
Every morning this week I’ve woken up to 40-degree weather. Brrr! When I said I want the fall weather I didn’t mean that fall weather. However, after a weekend filled with rain and long lounge sessions, it feels good to wake up to blue crisp skies, hold the crisp. As you know, my fall wardrobe is in limbo right now because much of my clothing is back in New Jersey. Although I’ve slowly been picking up new pieces, and this only means that I’ll have to purge some of my older clothing. It really is time for me to let go of my (past) clothing. And speaking of new, yes, you guessed it! This chunky khaki knit is brand spankin’ new, and if you see me on the weekend there’s a 95-percent chance I’m wearing it all.weekend.long. I’ve been resorting to simple looks lately and I’m starting to realize that less is actually more. This also applies to my ever-growing closet. I’ve been going through some of my clothing lately and am realizing that with many pieces, the quality is lacking and there are way too many one-hit wonders. That is, clothing I wear once and abandon because it’s a fleeting trend that doesn’t last more than a month. Lately, I’ve been styling simple staples and not only have I received various compliments, but I feel and look more sophisticated and mature. I’m 27 years old now. I have to start acting like it (only when I feel like it). In all seriousness, a closet purge is in order for me and if I can give you any advice on how not to let your overwhelming closet filled with one-hit wonders get the best of you, it’s to invest in staples and only staples. You know, those timeless pieces that add sophistication and class to your wardrobe.
