A few weeks ago I did a MAJOR closet clean out. I instantly felt this huge sense of relief and was able to really see what was in my closet! I realized I had been neglecting some of my classic pieces that I used to wear all the time in New York. Living in LA certainly doesn’t inspire me to get dressed and put together lol – I’m just being honest! It’s VERY casual here and always warm (which is amazing!) so most days you’ll find me in boyfriend jeans and a plaid button down, or Alo Yoga work out clothes and Nike sneakers. I like to be comfortable when I’m home answering emails, on conference calls to discuss my latest project, or playing with Charlie – and Derek doesn’t ever mind/care what I wear which is great! We tend to cook at home more than eat out (who am I?! I used to eat out EVERY night in NYC! haha) so comfy clothes reign! Anyways, my point is, that seeing those classic staple pieces in my closet a few weeks back made me feel put together again – and they gave me a little pep in my step – AND they allowed me to play with other pieces I hadn’t worn in a while. In the past 2 weeks – you’ve now seen me wear a white button down 3 times, and my favorite classic wash jeans countless times, and these black pumps 2 times. Investing in well made, classic pieces to sprinkle in with one of a kind, special pieces is ALWAYS a good idea. Use your classic pieces as the foundation or anchor to your outfit and style them knowing that you’ll always look put together and feel confident!
