a few of my favorite things (in my closet)

While we are on the subject of closets, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things in mine. Why keep the best things to myself?


First up, the Banana Republic Timeless Tank. I have many of them in several different colors and wear them almost every day. They are the softest, stretchiest knit and they hold up brilliantly.

Gap Always Skinny jeans for the not-so-skinny mommy. These are my go-to jeans for the winter because they are perfect boot-tuckers. They do not fit as tight as it looks in the photo and they cover the hiney nicely.



Smartwool socks. BEST. SOCKS. EVER. Enough said.

Heels from a boutique shoe store in London. I have no idea what it was called or where in London it was. Sorry I can't help you there. But I love these shoes and I had to include them in my list.



My Frye boots. This style is the Mildred Engineer (what a name!) and they don't carry it anymore. But I spotted these in the store, tried them on, then went home and found a barely worn pair on eBay for cheaper. It was meant to be. I also own the Veronica Slouch and love them too. Frye boots last forever.

This sweater was one of the first things I ever purchased from Anthropoligie and it started my love affair with their clothes. I love buying shoes and tights from them also. They are a little pricey for my budget, but this is what I do: I go online and browse occasionally and add the things I love to my wish list. Then I watch for them to go on sale. If they don't sell out first, they are almost always discounted to half off.

So there you have it—the wardrobe items I would not want to live without! What are yours?
