{closet makeover} step four :: make a list!



Moving right along to the next step in my Closet Makeover today {the most fun part yet} - defining your wardrobe staples. For me, wardrobe staples mean classic items that serve as the base to many different looks - they can be worn through changing fads, with countless accessories and trendy pieces. I started by sitting down and making a physical list of required items for my closet, and what from that list was currently missing from my wardrobe. For example:

{peach tank -- pink tank -- maxi dress -- shift dress -- chambray shirt -- silk button-up -- statement watch -- classic studs -- boyfriend jeans -- blazer -- striped tee -- v-neck -- colored belts -- tan belt -- nude pumps -- leather sandals -- keds -- black flats}

My mind is turning imagining the countless chic looks that could be created from just those staple items! This list will now serve as my guide to responsible shopping - which just happens to be the next step of the Makeover! Stay tuned.  

What's on your list of wardrobe staples?

  1. I just discovered your blog from Jess at Curating Style and have to say that I am already a fun. I love your pretty, minimalist blog design. And I think this closet makeover series is really fun, I can't wait to do this when I move back to the states soon (and off of a Caribbean island where life is fabulous, but nice clothes are not an option!). I like the pretty pic of you and your mom, too - thanks for reminding me that mother's day is this weekend - that's a bad one to forget!

  3. It is important for us to take the time and sort our clothes so that we can determine which ones could already be donated and which ones can be kept. With this, you get to organized your clothes and make more room for new items.
