While I am dreaming of floral dresses & sunshine, it seems like winter will still be sticking around for a little while longer. This time of year is always such a weird time for finding something to wear, I mean, not like we go anywhere, but you know what I’m saying. So when I am not wearing pajamas, I have a few basics that I love, they’re comfy enough to wear around the house but also can be dressed up quick with some fun earrings for happy hour! Let’s dive into my favorite basic closet staples right now!
Everyday basic grey long sleeve shirt. Ok I can’t tell you how many of these I have, I love it in white and grey (surprise) and I have a few of the other colors as well. I love scoop neck and the cute pocket, it’s also oversized, so I size down if I want to tuck it in cute with jeans, and also have it in my normal size to wear with leggings and layered to go outside with a puffy vest!
The perfect destructed, light wash vintage style denim! I love this cut and love the high waist, all of my Madewell jeans are my forever favorites because they just fit so well!! My favorite way to wear these is with a bodysuit or with an everyday tee, like the next one on the list!
The MAMA tees & sweatshirts just don’t get any better! They are made of the softest material and wash so well! There are just too many graphic tees circling the universe right now, I love that these are simple, modern & come in tons of gorgeous colors! And you can match with your kids, which is always a win in my book!!
I think you all know by now that I am a sweatshirt collector, so no surprise that this pink sweatshirt is high on my list! I love this textured material, I have a similar one from a few years ago and it is still one of my favorites! Also, pink forever.
This basic black swimsuit is about as good as it gets! I know we are talking about winter, but typically all the good suits sell out by the time summer rolls around. Also, Spring Break is coming and we could all use a quick beach vacation, yes? The texture and fit are so flattering, and you know I can’t say no to scalloped edges! It also comes in a one shoulder, so cute!! These run TTS, if anything maybe a tiny bit small, there is also a long torso version which I always do!
Honorable mentions that are not on this list but are always my go-to closet staples:
The best everyday black leggings (they’re a great lulu dupe for a third of the cost!).
Another sweatshirt, this grey vintage crewneck I’ve been wearing all week, it is so soft!!
Here’s the best part, almost all of these are on sale or are less than $50 anyway! While I love a good splurge every once in a while, it’s almost always these items that I am grabbing from my closet! Hope you find this helpful! XO
