Closet Confidential

Good Morning! I am excited to be linking up with Kiki of In Its Time & Jenna of Dearest Love for the Circle! Today’s challenge is a closet confidential where we fish through our closets and all answer the same questions. Are you ready for a peek into my closet (SPOILER ALERT it won’t be too surprising! I am a fan of the capsule wardrobe so most of these things you have seen before… and before!)

1. WHAT IS THE OLDEST ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET?
That would be my old and worn Eagle Lake Camps Sweatshirt. I got it at camp the summer Bruce and I met (2005) and I have held onto it! I am sure that I will never give it up – so many memories and so comfy. It is my slob winter cuddle wear! SPOTTED: here in this old school photo.
2. WHAT IS THE NEWEST ITEM?
So since I took these pictures I did pick out a new shirt from my last Stitch Fix box but we’ll pretend that didn’t happen! These are my wonderful ThredUp find – Banana Republic shoes brand new for like $10! If you have not tried out ThredUp yet, I highly encourage you to do so (and if you use that link you get $10 off your first purchase!)Β SPOTTED: here!
3. WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM?
My ONA bag was the most expensive item in my closet but I adore it! I needed a beautiful camera bag for everyday wear and to keep my camera safe and sound. SPOTTED: hereΒ Β & here.
4. WHAT IS THE BIGGEST BARGAIN?Β 
This one is hard because I feel like I mostly always get bargains! But this one won out because it is a beautiful dress from Stitch Fix that I used referral credit to cover all of it! Did you know that about Stitch Fix? For everyone who uses your link to sign up for their first box you get $25! SPOTTED: here and here
5. CURRENT FAVORITES:
I have lots of favorites. Really everything in my closet is one of my favorites because I believe it is better to have a small amount of clothes that you wear all the time, rather than a large closet filled with things you never touch.
My Gap button-up, my Gap stripped tee, my beautiful earrings from bespangled jewelry, this beautiful tank from Stitch Fix, and my all time favorite shorts from the Gap! Looking at my closet you can see that Gap & Stitch Fix are my go-tos for fashion! You can also tell that I live in a beautiful world of blues and greys. I am blue, abadi, abadi!

 

That’s all folks! To see more of how I style in my everyday life make sure to check out My Style posts! And now it is your turn! Answer these questions in the comments or on your blog!

  • LOVE great leather bags!!!

  • I love your style! I'm obsessed with stripe, like that navy shirt. So cute!

  • Blues are to you as blacks and greys are to me! Haha! I'm trying to get some more color in my closet though. πŸ˜‰

  • Dying over your camera bag!! It's so cute and looks so functional!!

  • Love love all of these items! I want an ONA bag so badly! Christmas, maybe πŸ™‚

  • Amy

    ahhh I love all of your closet items! πŸ™‚
    that sweatshirt = so many feels! yay for memories that are tied to clothing (I have a few like that!)
    THE CAMERA BAG = WANT! πŸ˜‰
    and I'm still dreaming of the day I can join stichfix!

  • Love this post! It's so fun to see your style!

  • Uh, thanks for getting that ridiculous song stuck in my head now! Haha! Though seriously, I appreciate you sharing this because I feel much better about my monochromatic wardrobe now. I'm pretty certain we'd match if we ever met!

  • It looks like I may have to break down and check out Stitch Fix πŸ™‚ Such cute stuff! I'm eyeing the Ona bags for Christmas and was wondering if you use yours as your purse too? Or if it's solely for camera stuff?

  • Emily! I should show you a picture of the inside! It has room for my camera and extra lenses as well as a laptop and some side pockets! If I want to bring my camera, I just throw my clutch in there and make it a purse!

  • HAHA! I feel like you just need to wear what you feel great in! and Blue is my thing!

  • Awesome! I would use mine as a regular purse most of the time (wallet, sunglass case, planner) and toss the camera in on the weekends sometimes so I'm glad to hear it can fit a bunch of extra stuff. I'll peruse through and pick one out πŸ˜‰

  • I have a Kelly Moore Camera bag and love it! It was a gift, but it's definitely the most expensive bag that I own…I love it though! And I always think you're stylin' πŸ˜‰
    Some of my go-to brands are definitely Gap, Loft, and J.Crew

  • I love all of your clothes. Obvi…seeing as we have lots of the same things. πŸ˜‰
    DO YOU LOVE YOUR ONA BAG?? It is so pretty!

  • Your ONA bag is fabulous! I'm definitely saving for one.

  • I have a pair of shorts just like your Gap ones except mine came from New York & Co. I've been living in them all summer!

  • This is so fun! I love how you did all your photos! And I love those shoes from ThredUp!

  • I am so in love with that polka dot dress and the ONA bag. Beautiful pieces! You've got such great style! Thanks so much for linking up with us!

  • I adore that polka dot dress! And the Gap floral top, ONA bag (you knew about my love for that one, though!) and all of the lovely blues and greys in your closet, too. Those are the two colors I have the most of in my closet!

    p.s. I just put in my first order at ThredUp and am so excited to try it out! You found a great pair of sandals!

  • Love that polka dotted dress! So cute! I have a couple old sweatshirts that I just can't get rid of for sentimental reasons… they're so dang comfy though! πŸ™‚

  • GAP. i love it there. did you see the $45 off $100 deal today? i didn't snag it, but it was such a good deal!

  • I also included an old sweatshirt in mine as the are just the best for cozy nights in!

  • This is probably a dumb question…but what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? I hear a lot about it and have an idea of what it is. I'm just curious! Oh, I love that polka dot dress and bag. So cute. Thanks for the heads up on Thred-up – I'll have to check it out πŸ™‚ -Jess @ Sweet Little Ones

  • Great question! I learned about it on UnFancy! http://www.un-fancy.com/
    but it is the idea that you have less clothing in your closest and only things you love.

  • Yeah! I try not to always jump on those πŸ™‚

  • they are just irreplaceable!

  • That bag & dress are great! I love them both!
