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!!!
