With Style and a Little Grace: Currently Craving: Closet Basics

Currently Craving: Closet Basics

I was putting together some new outfits for the blog yesterday and I realized that my closet is seriously lacking in some basic pieces that are necessary for classic looks. I am really bad about not wanting to buy boring basics and I have talked about this in the past but they really need to happen. 

When you don't have black shorts or a basic pair of jeans that you love and that fit correctly.... you know they need to be added to your wardrobe. I carry my list on my phone of items I am always looking to add to my wardrobe. Here are a few that I am looking to add soon. 

Black Shorts - You just need them. I have denim, white, color, and print. I need black

Blazers - I would like to have one in nude, black and a fun color. First I think I will add the black. 

Pumps - Nude pump and a fun leopard pump. I would love nude Louboutins but that is not going to happen for a little while and I need some for now. J.Crew makes a great version, they are still pretty expensive. But I have found with shoes it is better to spend a little money.

Jeans - As with shoes, I think you need to spend a little more on jeans for a great quality. Rag and Bone can do no wrong in my opinion.

Blouse - A classic blouse in a neutral color. It can go with everything. Stylish by itself. I have talked about this top before but I think it is perfect and I want it in every color.

Skirts - I would like a great skater skirt, leather ( have brown need black), and a cute skort. This zara inspired one I found on EBay for $28 and I will make it mine. I know these are played out but I love it and want one. 

T-Shirts - Black, white and gray. 

Black dress - A simple day dress that I can wear in the Fall and with tights, boots, and scarves in the winter. This one by ASOS has been on my radar for some time. I don't have enough casual dresses.

Black leather jacket - You just need one. It goes with everything and adds just a little edge to any outfit. 

Classic bag - I really need a classic everyday bag. I have my Rebecca Minkoff mini M.A.C. that I love but it is more of a night time or on the go bag. Right now I carry my Longchamp Le Pliage bag daily, but I want something a little sturdier and bigger to carry all my crap. It is more of a summer tote as well. 

Colored denim - Black and grey for the Fall.
