Preppy in Plaid

[ Scarf, Gap, similar here; White Sweater, Gap, similar here; Bag, Louis Vuitton Artsy; Red Jeans, Jessica Simpson, here; Black boots, Michael Michael Kors, very similar newer style here; Black Satchel, Tory Burch, love this style here; Black winter coat, Calvin Klein, old, but this one is super cute here ]

So, as of recently, I have been trying to reinvent my wardrobe. As such, purchasing more timeless, classic pieces. The start of my journey began when I bought this beautiful plaid scarf at the Gap (on sale!) I have been on the hunt for a cozy, bright red, plaid scarf for quite some time now. I really wanted the infamous Burberry plaid scarf, but due to already having two other Burberry scarves (yes, I realize I have a problem, and no, I'm not sorry about it), I thought I should probably be a little more frugal with such a bold piece. I didn't realize how much of a statement this scarf made with anything I wore! I like it most with neutrals.
With all this being said, I know this scarf will stay in my closet for many years, as I hope the items that I will be purchasing from now on will also. 

What are some of your favorite staple pieces in your closet?
Thank you so much for reading!!!

I'm back!!!! After a year..

Hi, Beauties!!
Thank you so much for reading! This is the first post on my new adventure.

I just started my career as a Qualified Mental Health and Intellectual Disabilities Professional, and it is the most rewarding, albeit tiresome work around. Within the mental health field, there isn't much of an emphasis on fashion (obviously, there are bigger issues). So, with that being said, I'm starting this blog up again for my personal interest and to share with others what I love most and that is fashion, style, and anything that sparkles * 

I can't wait to share this adventure with you, and I hope you feel the same.
a "real" post will come shortly!!
