Look 01 – Major Players


Style Bee - Outfit 1 - Chambray Shirt

Ah! The first outfit post of 2015. The new Closet Mission has commenced and I was blown away by the amount of support and positive feedback it received. Thanks so much for your comments and for joining me. We’re onto something good, I know it!

Right now I’m focusing on a shopping fast, where I don’t buy any clothes for 30 days (all of January). I’ll be sharing some tips on how to successfully fast later this week and I’ll dig a bit deeper into triggers and what makes us crave the shopping fix so often. I’m aiming to expose the pesky reasons behind impulse buying and be better prepared to spot them when they try to get the better of me.

Since I’m on a spending hiatus, I’m looking at my wardrobe as it is now and working with what’s there. During these 30 days I’m trying not to think too hard about outfits and to simply follow my instincts. This will probably lead to frequently repeated outfits and not so occasional mornings spent staring blankly at my options, thinking I have very few. But that’s ok. It’s kind of the point actually. To get a better sense of what’s in my wardrobe and take stock of it’s strengths and weaknesses.

As such, I’m kicking off 2015 with a look featuring my strongest closet players. A chambray shirt, black skinnies and black leather boots, a combination I can imagine wearing for years. It’s simple, comfortable and effortlessly chic. Right now I’m topping it off with a wool coat, textured bag and wrapping myself in a paisley print scarf to battle with winter cold. This is a truly failsafe look.

Do you have an outfit like this in rotation right now? Take a moment to jot it down for those mornings when you’re drawing blanks on what to wear.

    I just found your blog and have only read a couple posts but I LOVE IT. This outfit is classic and one that I would absolutely wear. And thank you for sharing sizes for reference! I’ve been wanting to get the Everlane chambray for awhile, but I go back and forth between XS and S. Reference points help!

      Hi Jenna, Thanks so much for your comment. So nice to hear that you like the blog! I’m glad the size reference helps. It’s always a big dilemma when shopping online. xo

    Love this look! <3 Definitely a favorite of mine too. One I always go to as well, and will wear for years to come. Loving the size. We are the same height but I've got about 25lbs on you. It'll help when I order my Everlane splurge 🙂

      Thanks Jodie! I can totally see you in this outfit! I thought the size might help because whenever I read blogs it’s something I wonder about. Glad to hear it does! Everlane splurges are the best kind of splurges haha XO
