The New Year is a time for self-evaluation and reflection of the past year.  We love the idea of a fresh start!  Out with the old, in with the new!  That includes old clothing from your closet, gathering dust!  

One of our New Year's resolutions is to make a clean start in our closets.  Donate, sell or trash items you haven't worn in 6 months- 12months.  Donate those skinny jeans you haven't fit into since you were in college.  There is no use holding onto things we can't wear or that set up unrealistic goals for the new year!  Kill two birds with one stone; donate and give to those less fortunate while making more room for new, new, NEW! 

This week, our efforts are focused on building a solid wardrobe with quality basics.  Here are our 5 classic closet must-have's for the modern woman!  Shop similar items available in the shop via the links below the inspiration photos.  Happy shopping and a happy 2018!

These are an item we believe every woman should have in her closet!  A comfortable, chic bootie is a season-less option that can be dressed up or down.  Pair with cut offs and a breezy tank for a summer night or pair with a chunky cardigan and skinnies for a chilly fall day.  Heeled like the LK Bennett Simi Bootie or flat like the Marc Fisher Yale, leather or suede, a classic bootie will always been in style and is totally worth the investment for a quality pair. 

2.  The Clutch

We think every woman should own a classic clutch!  Perfect for night time and events or can double as a wallet for day time and be thrown into your tote.  Go classic with an all leather clutch in a classic shape or, opt for one in a fun print like leopard or metallic. A good clutch is worth the investment and never going out of style!

3.  Statement Earrings

Last, but definitely not least on our list is the classic pump.  Any neutral tone will do, whether it be white, black, nude, grey or even navy!  Opt for something 2.5"-3.5" for something comfortable to walk around in, yet still lengthening and sexy!  A pump can pair with your pencil skirt and blouse for work and easily transition to nighttime when paired with leather skinnies and a silk top for dinner and drinks.
