The fall colors are in full swing and I have definitely been taking advantage of the long sweaters, booties and fall tones. With the start of a new season, I have been trying to build myself more of a capsule wardrobe and have been really leaning towards more basic pieces. I have been so sick of putting away my wardrobe at the end of a season, only to find that when I pull it out for the next year that everything feels outdated or…say it with me… “so last season”. I have really wanted to focus more on buying pieces that I can wear into winter or spring and easily purchase just a few new items as the weather changes to mix and match with my more basic pieces to make them feel fresh and new again. I have cleaned out my closet(s), over and over again, only to find that I always just lean towards those more simplistic options. For this outfit, I paired a basic black and white tee, high waisted Levi jeans, tan booties and a cardigan with a pop of autumn green. While the first three pieces fit more into the “basics” category, the green cardigan makes it fall appropriate with its longer length, ribbed detailing and pretty color. I am hoping that by being more mindful of the pieces I am buying each season, I won’t be constantly switching out items (and eventually getting rid of them) as often as I currently am! What do you tend to do…Do you lean towards more basic or trendy items?
