As I'm approaching my thirties, I'm noticing that I don't want to dress as trendy but rather I want to learn from the women of Paris and Milan who dress so timeless and classically chic. I don't have the budget of an upper east sider so I'm going to have to settle for less than top designer labels. But I don't think that you have to suffer. Stores that everyday women can comfortably afford offer the basics and with the right styling we can all be fashionistas in no time.
I made my list for what I need to buy to update and freshen my look and what will always look pulled together and appropriate whether I'm in the office or grocery shopping on the weekend.
1. Classic trench coat (in beige or red)
2. Gauzy scarves in fun colors or patterns
3. leopard print ballet flats & bold green and yellow ballet flats
4. white denim jacket and/or white denim jeans
5. a big oversized white leather handbag
6. the perfect black dress
7. crisp white shirt
8. bold colored cashmere sweater
9. black trouser
10. black pencil skirt
11. "the" perfect jacket/blazer that fits well
I have some of these items but I think it would be good to update them and check the fit of each and just make sure I have an updated, tailored version of each.
I still love trendy accessories and such but I'm thinking of updating my wardrobe slowly with classic, timeless pieces. I watch the runways and I watch blogs and every makeover show imaginable and this is the conclusion that I've come to after watching and thinking about it.
I totally love this shoe in yellow (and bright green)
