Don’t get me wrong, I love keeping up with all the latest trends, but there are those basic pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe. These ‘capsule essentials’ are those pieces that you will keep wearing season after season. Today I am sharing three of my wardrobe essentials that I believe every girl needs to have in their closet.

1. Black Jeans

Black jeans are so versatile and look great with everything from button-downs to sweaters. Honestly, you really can’t go wrong when pairing tops with black jeans. They are also perfect for dressing up at the office or date night with your sweetheart. I love the jeans I am wearing here from American Eagle. My biggest tip for black jeans is to limit your washing so that they don’t fade (totally gross, I know but it’s true). When you do wash them, wash on cool and air dry.

2. Button-Down

I love how classic and chic a button-down looks. Woke up late? Throw your hair in a bun and put on a button-down and no one will ever know. Obviously they pair perfectly with black jeans, or a pencil skirt for a little fancier look. I am wearing this one but I also love this one.

3. Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are my go to shoe. Doesn’t matter what time of year it is! There are so many fun styles and they work with seriously everything. I am not a big heel person, so I always opt to wear ankle boots with dresses, skirts, etc. You seriously can’t go wrong with a pair of ankle boots. I love this pair that I am wearing in this post and I’m trying to convince Kevin that I need this pair.

And there you have it! Three items that are must-haves in my closet! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Kevin and I spent all weekend organizing and decluttering our apartment and is still not done! We also, finally, went grocery shopping. For some reason Kevin wasn’t a fan of eating cereal for dinner every night. 😉 Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!
