fashion tips



I don’t pretend to be a fashionista or an expert on the subject. I have been either pregnant, postpartum or nursing for the past 4 years!! Because of this I have been out of the fashion world and now I am trying to reclaim my self image or style. I want to be a hip, put-together looking mom and not the frazzled, frumpy one I have been. We also just bought a house with a walk in closet and my husband has more clothes than I do! So I am on a mission to find good fashion that is classic and fits my body.

Here is what I have found to be 10 great closet staples that will have staying power in your wardrobe:

1. Striped tee

2. Chambray shirt

3. White pants

4. Knee high boots: cognac, black or a colorful pair

5. Bright carryall purse

6. Leggings

7. Metallic shirt (who doesn’t like the bling!)

8. Black patent leather pumps

9. Tailored blazer

10. Pencil skirt (many colors if you like!)

I still need to purchase a few of these myself, but when I do, I will be doing outfit posts showing you how to accessorize!

Your Turn!

Do you have some items you think I forgot? Please leave a comment below and let me know!!

Thanks for stopping by!


  • What a flexible list! I can see how these pieces mix and match for a variety of outfits. However, I simply can’t have white pants. Whenever I’ve tried white pants or skirts, they’ve instantly attracted stains. I’m too sloppy I guess.

    • Yeah, white pants are definitely tough! I wear it only to the event I was planning and take them off immediately when I get home. Thank you so much for your comment!
