Happy Tuesday ya’ll! I hope everyone is having a great week and crushing those 2019 goals. A couple of people recently asked about my process of selecting clothes. I used to be really into trendy pieces that would go out of style quickly. At the end of 2018, I decided to take more of a minimalist approach to life. I purged everything from my closet to hair products. I’m more focused on staples that I really love and wear/use often. I’ve been filling my closet with basics that can be interchanged. Check out how I styled the same coordinated set from Boohoo below. This is actually one of three sets I own. It’s so easy to mix and match pieces from them if you want more bang for your buck. Since my blog is fairly new, I thought it would be fun to do some “get to know me” questions as well. Check them out after the pics!
I absolutely love this off the shoulder set from Boohoo Plus! I’ve worn the top with other bottoms such as a faux leather skirt. The pants get more wear because they’re so easy to pair with just about any top. I’ll usually throw a duster on with them because they are form-fitting.
The black plants I’m wearing here are apart of the coordinated set above! Decided to pair them with a glam blazer, also from Boohoo+.
I’ve worn these DSW pumps about 10 times since purchasing them on black Friday! I love how they can be easily dressed up or down. I paired them with some ripped jeans and a white blouse recently!
