This year I am focusing on a simpler and more “me” wardrobe. I’ve cleaned out my closet about 4 times since the start of 2017. I really want to focus on collecting quality pieces over quantity. Also pieces that I know I will wear over and over again, not just once or twice. Clutter is not a friend of mine and I’m looking to kick him to the curb. I want a wardrobe that consists less of “I bought it because it was on sale” and more “I would buy this full price because I can’t pass it up”.

I’m so guilty of buying clothing because it’s on sale or really cheap. Then it turns out I wash it once (or wear it once) and it’s ruined. Now, I’m going to focus on building up my wardrobe with key pieces that I KNOW will get worn.

Making way for new clothes means I need to actually get new clothes. I’m really into the bohemian style and love comfy clothes. I’ve put together a list of items that would be perfect additions to my wardrobe (and pretty much any girls’ closet) for the new year. All of these items are from Shein, which is where my embroidered shirt in these photos is from. Every piece I’ve gotten from Shein has been great so far. Seriously, this shirt is great quality and a steal at just under $22. Shein is one of those companies that have a ton of clothes that are in style but for a fraction of the price. You also really need to pay attention to the sizing too though.

Below are all pieces that I think are versatile and fit my style. I can think of at least 3 different ways to wear/accessorize each of these pieces (and that’s important when buying new clothing items).

I’m really into embroidered items and things that have tassels right now. Embroidery is gorgeous and unique. Tassels add the fun. That’s why I am in love with this top I’m wearing in these photos. It pairs well with jeans, leggings, and distressed jean shorts (that’s 3 outfit ideas right there, get yourself this shirt).

P.S. Can you tell that I changed my hair?! I want to gravitate towards the whole “sun kissed” look. Light brown roots with blonde ends, or balayage. My problem? I have naturally blonde hair. While my roots aren’t white blonde like I’ve had my hair for a while, they are a dirty blonde. So while I give my hair a break before doing the whole balayage thing, I wanted to disguise my roots. So I had my Mom (she’s a hairstylist) add in lowlights so my roots aren’t as noticeable. In the end, I want something like this. What do you think?
