With a brand new year just over a week away, I can't but help find myself feeling nostalgic and grateful as I reflect on all of the experiences and memories 2021 brought me, both professionally and personally. And while I never want to wish time away and always try to remain present in the here and now. But as we wind down the year, I sure do get giddy with anticipation looking ahead to the next 365 days, as I envision and dream up all the possibilities, blessings, and opportunities that are waiting for us! I'm a big believer in putting out into the universe - and to the big Man upstairs - what you wish to receive. So I always take a moment at the end of the year to visualize and then write down my hopes and goals for the coming year. A mental and spiritual refresh, if you will! I'm also a big proponent of the idea that how you dress and what you wear also greatly impacts your mood and productivity. So in my humble opinion, a wardrobe refresh for the new year is also necessary!
I've picked out five pieces that your closet is calling for, and all are under $100. Cheers to a new year, new clothes, and the same fabulous you!
Champignon Graphic Tee // You can honestly never have too many graphic tees, as they are super versatile and can be styled a multitude of ways! I adore the dusty rose color on this one and the oversized fit makes it the perfect pairing for your favorite leggings. Plus the roll sleeves along with the distressed hem gives it a little extra flair!
Plaid Oversized Shacket // Take that graphic tee and layer this cozy oversized shacket right on top! A shacket is the perfect transitional piece when it's not quite cold enough for a winter coat but the temps are just too chilly to not have a little extra warmth on the arms. The hem length on this one is a smidge longer in the back, which is ideal for bum coverage! I prefer the gray version to pair with the dusty rose graphic tee above, but I am crushing on the caramel brown option, too!
Yordana Bootie // Finish off the graphic tee, legging, shaket trio off with a fabulous pair of chunky ankle booties! In case you've been living under a rock, combat boots and chunky shoe aesthetics are back in a big way and this pair is the perfect mix of trendy yet timeless. This bootie comes in three color options - black is my preference for this look - but I do love both the nude and tan hues! The thick sole and mid-heel along with buttery soft faux suede are guaranteed to make this shoe the most comfortable cold-weather pair you will own.
Wink Face Slouchy Sweatshirt // You'll be reaching for this cute and cozy pullover all winter and into spring! The smiley face trend is going strong right now and I'm here for it. A smile goes a long way, so why not wear it on our sleeve! Whether you are rocking pajama bottoms, joggers, leggings, or your favorite pair of jeans; this sweatshirt is effortlessly cool and comfy, to boot.
TOMS Alex Sneakers // I know I sound like a broken record but I LOVE a good pair of white tennis shoes. They are hands-down my most worn item from my closet and an absolute wardrobe must-have! They literally go with everything. The MVP of your shoe line-up! From dresses, skirts & bodysuit combos, to jean or biker shorts and all your favorite comfy stretchy pants; white sneakers add an element of classic cool and with a quick round in the wash, come out looking good as new. So basically you save money when you buy these!
So as you think about your own wardrobe refresh for the new year, tell me, what pieces are you adding that I missed! Sharing is caring, cheers girlfriends!
