As I mentioned in my first Blog 3 steps to loving your closet my first step is to write out a wish list for the upcoming season and identify what pieces are essentials and what ones are trends.
Essential Pieces are key items you will use to create multiple outfits throughout the season; this is when I’m willing to spend a little more money. ( But I still try to get the best deals I can.)
After I write my list, I check my closet first. For example, I use my Faux leather jacket and ankle boots that already used in the Fall and Winter for my spring outfit looks. You don’t need to go and purchase a whole new wardrobe every season. The goal is to use as much clothing pieces you already own and sprinkle in the new season appropriate pieces to freshen up your outfits.
Here’s a look at what my personal “Essentials list” looks like for Spring 2019 with some added styling notes on how I envision wearing these pieces.
Shell jewelry has to be my favorite trend for spring. Loving the chockersand layered style necklaces mixed with gold jewelry pieces. I remember living in my puka shell necklace in elementary school, so this trend is close to my heart.
