My wardrobe has gotten so very boring over these past two years, but you know what else it become? Easy. And comfortable. And occasionally I’ll enjoy getting dressed up for a particular reason, I’ve really come to enjoy the ease that is a basic and comfortable wardrobe.
I picked out a few of my most worn staples and rounded them up below. These are all items I wear over and over again throughout the weeks. I’m looking so forward to cooler temperatures to incorporate some different jeans or pants with boots and scarves, but for now, I’m usually wearing something that that can be made from the items below.
I’ve enjoyed getting StitchFix boxes (just got my third fix and am still undecided on whether I’ll keep anything), but I’ve also resolved that keeping my day to day outfits simple and basic make my mornings easier.
The single most worn item in my closet is my madewell denim shorts. Man I love those. They stretch a bit so I actually wish I would have sized down, but they have held up through many washes and still look and feel great. I’ve never owned any other denim from madewell, but I’ve been so pleased with these shorts that I may try on some jeans this winter.
I also am a new convert to Lululemon shorts. I resisted this for years. I thought they were over-priced and just popular because of the brand. But after a recent quest for black athletic shorts left me coming up empty handed, I finally decided to order some online and see what the heck the big deal was. And I’ll tell you what the big deal is, and I mean that literally. My butt and thighs are the curviest parts of my body, and these shorts look and feel awesome. I’ve never worn athletic shorts that I felt better in. The shape is flattering, they fit is perfection, and the length is exactly right. So, if you’ve resisted like I have, I’d truly recommend trying them.
Other than totally athletic days aka no jewelry and extremely minimal makeup, I always wear a bit of makeup, do my hair, and put on jewelry. That helps me feel put together despite my plain outfit.
I’m curious, what is that one item in your closet that you are always reaching for? Is it a top or a bottom?
