Wardrobe basics

  1. Skinny jeans - Michael Jors
  2. Black leggings - J. Crew Pixie Pant
  3. Leopard Wingtip jacket - Emerson Fry
  4. Black wool coat - Zara
  5. Faux Fur coat - Elie Tahari
  6. Black blazer - Theory (old)
  7. Sheer blouse - Pussybow top, Urban Outfitters
  8. Cashmere sweater - J. Crew
  9. Walking boots - Macalister Wedge, J. Crew
  10. Oxblood pumps - Emerson Fry

In my attempt to regain my style mojo, I need to rebuild the basic wardrobe. Aside from the standard 9-5 business suits which will imminently be thrown into the Goodwill pile - as I hopefully, will never have use of them again, I'm left with just a few things:  my designer shoes, a pair of jeans, tank tops, and a worn out parka from Zara.

For years I couldn't fathom anyone over the age of 12 or over 90 lbs should ever submit themselves to the embarrassment of skinny jeans, leggings, jegging but there must've been a paradigm shift in the fashion world, because I adore them now! When I put slipped into my first skinny jeans, they looked fabulous. And this was three months postpartum thighs - so hell, I'm a late adopter, yet again.

I've recently started acquiring a few wardrobe staples but have a quite a bit of catching up to do. One of the positives of living in the Minnesota tundra is I can use the excuse of the frigid weather to build a robust collection of coats and jackets depending on the temperature range:

50-60 F: trench coat & pumps
40-50 F: My leopard heavy linen coat & wedge boots or pumps
30-40 F: My black wool coat/camel wool coat & knee high boots
10-20 F: Parka & wellies with knee high socks
10 and below F: stay inside and play dress up for this blog

Below is my lust/want/need list:

  1. Classic trench coat - Burberry Mottram trench
  2. Leather riding boots - Gucci lace up boot
  3. Leather knee high heel boots - Maison Marghela
  4. Camel wool coat - Dolce & Gabbana on Farfetch.com
  5. Handmade knit cardigan - Irenastyle on Etsy
  6. Parka - SAM Adirondack fur lined Parka
  7. Silk blouse - Oscar de la Renta
  8. Mulberry bag- Bayswater in flame red
  9. Leather gloves - Purple opera length gloves, Carolina Amato
  10. Nude glitter pumps - Manolo Blahnik BB Glitter Pump
