I also think it was curious that I didn't have a strong sense of what my wardrobe needed. I was unable to give any requests when I got the note that my fix was being chosen, only that I needed breathable fabrics that would not be fragile and too delicate.
So the first thing I saw was the gray knit shirt. As soon as I glimpsed the vintage-vibe pink insert in the back, I knew I would love it.
Shorter in the front and longer in the back, it is perfectly comfortable and soft. But the back makes it so much more than a simple gray knit shirt, and I know I will love wearing this over and over again.

Next, I found the wonderful floral skirt. Reminiscent of a vintage wallpaper pattern, it is fully lined. I was afraid it was too long at first, but then realized it fits like a 1950s pencil skirt. Another versatile piece, I know I can easily dress it up or down.

Trying it on with the navy blue knit top I also got in this fix was an obvious choice. It will be fun to style it with a simple lacy tank and jean jacket too. All the colors allow for plenty of options.
The darling little top is so lightweight and soft and has a lace accent across the top of the shoulders, which keeps it from being just a basic t-shirt. I love the length of the sleeves as well as the length of the torso, which works well for my long waist.

Let's talk about classics, shall we? A button front white shirt with a a couple of perfect twists: elbow sleeves are perfect for me. I hate anything long and floppy around my wrists, so I always push up my sleeves. The sides have coordinating knit panels that keep it fitting smooth. This shirt is knit with a cotton back, so it breaths and has the vibe of a basic white shirt, while being as comfortable as a T. The cut is super flattering.
Finally, I got another pair of jeans. At first I thought, "I don't really need more jeans." But then I tried them on and realized, "YES I DO." Especially since they are an extremely dark wash, almost black, which makes them appear much dressier than normal jeans. They are bootcut, and a little on the long side, perfect for wearing with my favorite heels, which also makes them great for church, date night, and school programs. I have lost exactly 1 pound of baby weight: thanks for noticing! I'm not exaggerating one little bit, so my new stylist is some kind of genius, because I feel like I lost 20 pounds.

Here they are with the little navy t-shirt....adorable, right? Having these basics is a great treat. I didn't realize how much I needed some of these wardrobe extenders, but I know I can layer, mix and match, and wear these things in so many ways.
