Shopping my closet

For the past while I’ve been trying to streamline my wardrobe by investing in more quality basics to stretch my closet farther. I’m by no means a minimalist, however, I am totally obsessed with fashion blogs about minimalism and capsule wardrobes. I decided to try shopping my closet to see if I could stretch some of my pieces farther. If you’re looking to streamline as well, you may want to try it. The idea is that you pull a favourite piece and try creating new outfits centered around it with pieces you already own.

Shopping your closet - camel blazer

A few months ago I purchased a vintage camel blazer and have been wearing it at least twice a week ever since. Pinterest is a great resource for outfit inspiration, especially if your closet is feeling a bit tired. Here is an outfit I created after doing some pinterest scrolling.

  1. I love this look. I’ve been wanting a camel blazer for ages! I really like your boots! I’ll have to try shopping my closet, as I always forget what I have. It’s always great making new outfits and looks using pieces and items you already have. Thank you for the inspiration!!

  2. I love doing this! I have a lot of fairly plain basics that makes it really easy to switch things around and create new outfits. I try to pull out older items that I love but don’t wear often and see what I can make them work with every once in a while. I’m a big believer in investing in basics too and spending smaller amounts on trend pieces that won’t get the same love x

  3. I love that blazer! I’m mad about blazers, they’re so versatile! I don’t have much in my wardrobe, as a 20 something Woman, most people would be surprised I think! I’ve never been into buying loads and loads of clothes, I just don’t see the need for it. I have stuff to wear? But getting good quality basics you can mix and match is a fantastic idea!

  4. Love the camel blazer and the boots! I feel like you could match those with virtually anything cause they’re neutral colors!
