I’ve been out of the rut of consistently wearing all black for two years now, and have played with color and prints more than I’ve done in a long time. I realized one Sunday standing in front of my closet that getting back to quality basics would be very helpful. I have so much color and print going on without enough staples to tie it all together. When you’ve downsized your wardrobe extensively as I have, it is extremely important to always make sure that you have at least five strong basic pieces that can be the foundation for your wardrobe for both the spring/summer season and the fall/winter season.
That Sunday I was extremely frustrated trying to determine what to wear simply because I had gotten away from my wardrobe checklist, and hadn’t replaced some much needed basics. I recently found these black skinny pants at a local consignment shop that just made sense. Paring them with simple pieces that day was just refreshing.
You may also have noticed that I’ve styled my hair in two strand twists. This used to be a favorite go-to style when my hair was so much shorter, and I was focusing on a simple and easy style to maintain healthy hair. Well I’m back to wearing my hair in twists again with a little something new. I will be sharing more about this style later this week.
Enjoy your week!
