Fashion Friday// Five Closet Must Haves

I must confess, I am frugal by nature.  But I am also drawn to pretty store displays and the newest season trends.  So with this little dilemma I have learned to prioritize my needs and wants as I build my clothing options.  As I talk with girlfriends I find that, for the most part, we are all in the same boat.  Loving those pretty dresses and shoes but having some set budget on what we can purchase.

Naturally this got me to thinking that a 'must have list' might be helpful to share.  So without further discussion here are my Five Closet Must Haves:

A few pairs of perfectly fitting jeans.  This is not the "oh they were on sale and they looked cute" kind of jeans.  This is a pair of jeans that flatters your body type and fits throughout.  A pair that you can dress up or dress down.  Preferably in a dark wash.  A pair that you invest in, knowing that, yes, they may cost a little bit more but they will last that much longer!

A blazer.  This is one of those items that is a great staple.  Dress it up.  Dress it down.  Add a glitter tank underneath and it's ready for a night out!  Whether it's a tailored blazer, a boyfriend blaser or even one that is oversized you can make this one piece stretch your wardrobe.

A great pair of boots.  There is no limit to how you can wear boots.  Over skinny jeans, with a cute pair of boot socks and a skirt, with an adorable lace dress.... really a great pair of boots can go with anything.  The main thing about boots is that, like the way in which we invest in a great fitting pair of jeans, it's that much more important to invest in shoes.  When you decide to invest in shoes the payoff is well worth it as they tend to last for years!

Spanx.  Figure flattering spanx are a girls best friends.  I really don't think I need to say much else! ;)
Although I will say; as with most staple items investment is key.  Sure you can find some cheaper versions (which I've tried) but as always you get what you pay for ladies!

And last but not least, A little black dress.  This is just a classic piece.  Perfect for that special occasion, that date night or a girls night out.  As long as it's flattering to your body type and compliments your figure you can never go wrong with a little black dress.
I hope this inspires you as you build your dream wardrobe.  Remembering that there are things you do want to invest in and even save up to get.... like those frye boots I'm saving up for!
