Life is rarely black and white. Shades of grey color the world…and my closet. You thought I was going to get philosophical there didn’t you? Nope, I’m just talking about these fabulous pieces I’m using to transition into spring. I planned to wear them with a sleek jacket or comfy cardigan and then spring came to February so we can just pretend I won’t be huddled up in sweaters and Sherpa boots again next week.

I’ve been talking a lot about capsuling lately and I have to admit I’m failing miserably at both my goals for this month (I’ve bought 2 new cardigans, a tee, some leggings…need I go on? And, I’ve pulled more than one piece out of my closet to accentuate the original line up). That said, I am sticking to neutral classic pieces and finding out what I enjoy wearing over and over…and what I don’t. Black, white, and all the shades in between are definitely a do and a must for the building blocks of every wardrobe. Black looks good on everyone. As far as white and grey, you can do cool charcoal or warmer greige and stark white or creamy ivory. For me, no question, I like the clean crisp whites, dark midnight blacks, and faded charcoals.

Once you get past picking your colors, choosing classic styles is key to a great wardrobe. Tees, jeans, and leggings are all great basics but to give your outfit a little punch, choose pieces that accentuate your own unique vibe.

Four items you need in your closet right now.

1. Tunic. A tunic is like a tee but more put together. It’s perfect with leggings or skinny jeans.

2. Casual Tee Dress. Dress it up or down. The tee dress is probably the most versatile item you will own. I love that it’s perfect for a day running errands and equally awesome for a night on the town. Go neutral so you can dress this up anyway you want (scarves add a cute pop of color and don’t be shy about adding jewelry or a fun shoe).

3. Blouse. A good blouse will take you from mom to office ready. Who am I kidding, my office is next to my laundry room but I do like to throw one on when I’m going out with the girls. It’s an easy way to pull yourself together. Sleeveless options make a good layering piece and can be worn tucked or untucked with jeans, leggings, or a high waisted skirt.

4. Statement pants. My favorite right now are the moto leggings. But, you can do this with color, pattern, or texture. I love the moto look right now because it brings me back to the 90s and that’s a big fashion trend right now (I never thought I’d see the day but I’m curiously glad to- just don’t bring back the stirrup pants and scrunchies please!).

Don’t forget to give your outfit a little kick with the right shoes for your day: tennies to mom it, comfy for a casual day out, or sexy heels for a date (yes, even if it’s just out with the husband- show him what’s been hiding under the mom bun and penguin slippers).

What do you think? Do you see the world through grey colored glasses? I know I certainly do and my closet is loving it.

    1. I’ve been looking at that blouse for a solid year- so glad it’s finally in my closet. And, I have done the same thing! Then I saw pieces fly out of my closet after wearing them once and realized I need to choose pieces I love- and will actually wear. Give me all the neutrals!

  8. I’ve been meaning to look into a capsule wardrobe. I have way too many random pieces of clothing that don’t match with anything! I love those pants that you have too!
