I am fully convinced in the power of a minimalistic wardrobe.
Procuring pieces that defy the test of time despite the latest season/trend. The piece that you can pull out of your closet blindfolded and still feel happy with your choice. I’m slowly working on donating items I just don’t wear and only purchasing versatile pieces I love.
Thanks to a close friend, I recently read The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe and developed a newfound passion for building a wardrobe I love. Are you sick of feeling like you have a closet packed with clothes but never have anything to wear? READ. THIS. BOOK.
I finished this book and off I went in search of versatile pieces I could wear dressed up or down. And then I found this this navy dress. I wore it to a friend’s Diwali party and paired it with this purse (It look me nearly a year to track down the Prada Saffiano Medium Tote in Blush – it is wait listed everywhere!! Head to SaksFifthAvenue.com to sign up if you’re in the market for a purse to last you a lifetime!) and a pair of blush peep toe slingbacks (similar here).
I’m sure it sounds funny to boast about finding a dress under $50 when I’m pairing it with pricier accessories, but I happen to be a huge proponent of pairing some affordable with some investment pieces to extend the life of your wardrobe.
At under $50, available in a multitude of colors, and Nordstrom’s free shipping and free returns offer – this dress is a no brainer!
So here’s a serious question. At what point do I need to step up my photography game for this blog?! My poor selfie attempts aren’t cutting it are they? There are tons of things I want to share with you all – from recipes to fashion finds but then quickly realize the need for clear photography and feel immobilized. Quite the conundrum. Any pro-bloggers out there with tips of the trade?! Other than dropping buku bucks on an SLR 😉
Here’s to a wonderful Monday, friends!!
