Wardrobe Staples: What I Have In My Closet


Wardrobe staples could be very different for everyone’s closet.

For me, I have quite a few “staples”. These are things I’m CONSTANTLY wearing and re-wearing. The pieces that my mind automatically think of when I say, “What should I wear today?” I always love taking a peek into other people’s closets.

Black Jeans

I was actually not a big fan of black jeans until like 2016. I remember my very first pair of black jeans, they were from Paige. They were stretchy and everything I wanted basically. Since then, I tried a lot of different black jeans. I really liked this pair from Gap (seen in this post). They didn’t fade much, and I wore the crap out of them for years. Then, I was introduced to Everlane and my wardrobe was changed forever. Not only do I love their cashmere, but also love their Authentic Stretch denim.

Bralettes

This is kind of a new staple for me. To be honest, I hate wearing bras. And to be even more honest, I don’t really need one (itty bitty committee right here). When I started working for Free People, I knew I was introduced to the Adella bralette. I realized I had seen this bralette EVERYWHERE. I wear one pretty much every day. They go under everything, and are perfect if you’re wearing a more revealing top (like this one).

Cashmere

I’ve loved cashmere for as long as I can remember. I totally blame my dad for this because he also loves cashmere. I was really big on J.Crew cashmere for a long time…until I learned about Everlane. My go to is the cashmere cropped mockneck sweater (I have it in a few colors). It’s the perfect length to tuck in, and to layer longer shirts underneath.

Wedgie Jeans

If you haven’t tried Levi’s Wedgie jeans, you’re missing out. I wasn’t really sold on them at first, because I assumed they wouldn’t look good on my curvy hips and short legs. Well, now I’m pretty much obsessed with them – I have a pair in black, light wash, and medium wash! I love that they’re more casual and laid back.

Good Flats

My go to shoes are loafers and mules. There’s something about them that make a look feel so polished and put together. Some of my best investments are my Gucci mules. I also love my Chanel ballet flats. I usually keep a few pairs at my desk even when it’s winter because that’s how much I love my looks worn with flats.

Good Boots

Christmas In New York City: Wollman's Rink, Central Park

I also think everyone should have a good pair of boots in their closets. A few years ago during Black Friday, I purchased two pairs of boots in black and taupe that were seriously AMAZING. Even though I usually reach for my booties, I still think it’s important to have a good pair of booties, over the knee boots, and knee high boots.

  • Gonna admit it, I was 100% a hater before I stepped into @precisionrun🤫 I've had a love/hate relationship since I started running competitively in 2006. After a knee injury, laziness, and just being over running 35 miles a week for 4 years of my life...I stopped in college. I decided to get back into it and complete a few half marathons. Then, the lazy mindset crept back in, so I quit👎🏻 And that's how I became a hater. Honestly, I just resented running a bit. Until last night. Thanks to @davidsiik, running became FUN for me again. I can't wait to incorporate #precisionrun into my every day routine and fall back in love with the sport that has done so much for me❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 #ad #running #runner
