Anyway, I'm going shopping with my mom this coming weekend, and I'm determined to change some of my shopping habits. I always seem to buy either one: shoes, two: pants/skirts, or three: more shoes, which has led to a closet that is full of a multitude of shoes and bottoms.. with no tops to wear with them. I think I just get a bit overwhelmed with the amount of tops out there, and I never feel like going through and looking at all of them. So, I am specifically going to just look at blouses, although I am on the hunt for a specific pair of shoes (when am I not? ha), so I may have to pick those up as well. As for my Polyvore sets, they are helping me to plan out things for buying a more professional looking wardrobe. Since I'm graduating soon and will be looking for a job, I figured I needed to start getting serious about picking out pieces that will be the most versatile, meaning I can wear them in a professional setting as well as on a more normal basis.
Enter my Polyvore sets:
Apt. 9 Top / Wallis Blazer / Gap Dark Wash Jeans / Oxford Heels / FOSSIL Structured Leather Handbag / Target Gold Bangle Watch / ASOS Bangle Bracelet, $15 / House of Harlow 1960 Earrings / Butter London Nail Polish
J.Crew Striped Tank / H&M Knit Cardigan, $38 / Banana Republic Black Pants / D'Orsay Flats / ASOS Strap Satchel / FOSSIL Wrist Watch / FOSSIL Pendant Necklace
Now, I know I have a long way to go before having an awesome professional wardrobe, but I think I'll start out by acquiring a few classic tops that will also enhance the wardrobe I already have! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I've already started this process by scoring one awesome black chiffon peplum top at Forever 21 this past weekend on sale for $11.
Happy Monday, my friends! Let me know whatcha think, and if anyone has experience building a professional wardrobe, do you have any tips?
