i made a list

i’ve made grocery lists and to do lists and even packing lists but how i have come this far in life without making a WARDROBE list is like, so dumb.

as i was making said list i was thinking that my lack of list in this department is the reason i shop for the occasion and subsequently have very little for every day dressing. it’s why i look like an edgy homeless hooker when i go to the grocery store.

so now i have to be very strict with myself. only from the list only from the list only from the list because i DO love a sequin.

i don’t need another party dress. or trendy sweater. or anything with sequins.

and no, i’m not buying 6 coats tomorrow. it’s just apparent to me now that i need well made basics/staples in my closet to make getting dressed easier. making this list helped me see the bigger picture.

it’s also helped me to put together some every day inspiration looks onto a pinterest board and subsequently find the pieces and pin those too. so when i’m ready to purchase i am basically purchasing an entire outfit.


here’s my fall/winter vibe…
