Well, fellas. I thought it was about time I shared some of my staples in my wardrobe. Truly, these are staples year-round. Now let me start off by saying that this is not a capsule wardrobe, under any circumstance, and I am not the type of girl that will ever have a capsule wardrobe. I'm sure of it. Don't get wrong, I think it's a great idea, but I generally feel pretty comfortable in most of my clothes, and I usually thrift off a bag or two each month either way.
These pieces fit into my casual wardrobe, as well as my work wardrobe. I don't generally have to pick between the two. I prefer a casual and comfy look, even when it comes to work wear. I do have a couple of pencil skirts and a blazer thrown into my closet for work, but a lot of what I wear can be switched out between both work and the weekend.
I do have heels in my closet, as well, but those are generally reserved for special occasions and/or presentations I have to do at work. I generally prefer little to no heel when it comes to my shoes.
So, without further adeiu, here are my wardrobe staples.
|I'm a big fan of a black maxi. I have two front Target that I wear all throughout Summer. Here are few similar styles: one, two, three, four|
|A comfy shirt dress is one of my favorite things. You can find a similar one here (same dress, different colors).|
|This comfy sheath dress is also from Old Navy, but from last year, and I can't find a similar one. It has zero stretch to it, but is so comfy, and also layers great.|
|I got this dress on a great sale. It's comfy and great for layering, or wearing as is. You can find it here (same dress, different color).|
|Another Old Navy favorite. Stretchy cottony comfort. This one is similar, but in a different color and wider straps. Still, you cannot beat a jersey swing dress from ON.|
Tops & Sweaters
|Seriously one of my favorite tops. I wear it regularly in the summer, but also tend to layer it under sweaters when it's cold out. I got this one from Ross or TJ Maxx probably 3 years ago. This shirt is a similar style, and would be a great layering tank!|
|One of my favorite, and comfiest shirts. It great with a pair of jeans on the weekend or a pencil skirt for work. You can find it here.|
|This is one of the comfiest shirts I've ever owned. I could really wear it every single day. You can find it here in a variety of colors. (The shirt is much darker in person than on the ON site.)|
|Once again, another great Old Navy find. I looks great with a pair of jeans, or structured work pants. You can find it here.|
|This one is the same as above in a different color. Once again, it can be found here. (The shirt is much darker in person than on the ON site.)|
|This sweater, from TJ Maxx, is so comfy and cozy. It's great with jeans or layer over a dress or romper. A similar one can be found here.|
|I could wear this sweater every single day. It's great over dresses, jeans, for work, at home, whatever. It's warm and chunky and so, so comfy. This one is a similar style, but patterned, instead of tan.|
Pants & Shorts
|I own these pants in this style in black and also in this style in navy. They are so comfy, and some the best pants possibly to wear to work!|
|Some of my favorite shorts are LC by Lauren Conrad. They are cute, comfy, and have pockets! This style isn't sold anymore, but you can find a similar (and super cute) style here!|
Some of my go-to jeans can be found here, and also pretty much any pair from Old Navy.
|These, in particular, are Xhilaration from Target, but they don't sell these exact ones anymore. You can get similar styles from Target here, or you can get more splurge-y ones from Birkenstock.|
|The kilty hardsole moccasins from Minnetonka are some of my major go-to shoes. I have several pairs, in coral, teal, gray, and basic brown. You can find all of those here and sometimes for about half off at TJ Maxx!|
|I always love a good sneaker. I love to wear them on the weekends, with jeans or a dress. I just love that comfy feeling. You can find these exact ones here.|
|Ankle boots are always major go-tos. I almost always wear them through fall and winter. I always make sure to have a pair in tan and black. You can find the black ones here and the tan ones here.|
|I also keep a pair of leather ankle booties for rainy days. These are Clarks, and are some of the comfiest shoes ever. You can find a similar pair here.|
