Hey fashion fam! I hope you all enjoyed a sweet night celebrating with your loved ones last night [insert heart eyes emoji]. 🙂
All of the Valentine’s Day hype the last few weeks has put me in a super giving mood, which lead to a very generous purge of my closet this weekend. I was hanging laundry (and running out of hangers, honestly) when I realized I had so many gently worn items that I just no longer wear.
Most of it was office attire (skirts, blouses, jackets, pumps, etc.) so I had a great idea to find a local women’s shelter in my area and donate anything I hadn’t worn in a few years. My hope is that it ends up in the hands of someone who’s looking for a fresh start!
Once I was through with with purge, my natural reaction was, “Hmmm now that I have all of this room, what do I need?” The answer was truly nothing, but who follows their own rules anyway.
If you find yourself in a similar place, I suggest Tanger for a few simple pieces that are a little bit more versatile than the items you ultimately end up donating. Ones that could be styled a million different ways and worn no matter the season.
So… Here’s what I found!
No, you’re not seeing double. I somehow ended up with both of these tops in my shopping bag. 😉 They’re from my favorite, J.Crew Factory and are truly the most versatile pieces you could add to your office attire.
The pairing options are endless – black skinnies, white skirt, cuffed denim, bold blazer, simple cardigan, statement necklace and the list goes on…
Of course black and white is always a winner when it comes to playing the matching game, so who could go wrong!
After a successful stop at J.Crew, I stopped into Shopper Services to pick up my coupon book and LOOK WHAT I SAW!
You guys, it’s the FREE giveaway tote for new TangerClub members that reach their $250 spend level. I cried a little inside because I’m way past this, and I couldn’t help but share with you guys. How perfect is this tote for laptops, notebooks, etc. It’s big, but not too bulky and super sleek!
And of course while perusing, I had to stop into Saks OFF 5th (where I always leave with shoes). I spotted these beauties when looking for something a little more neutral to add to my collection.
I’m usually all about a good pump for the office, but sometimes you just need a break (for function not from fashion)! These grey, suede pointy toe flats have just enough detail and a stylish shape to avoid looking too generic.
Happy (and comfortable) feet for the win!
All that to say… If you have items in your closet that someone else might need more than you do, never feel afraid to pass them on. Share the fashion love!
But, I also give you permission to reward yourself with a few new timeless pieces. Happy shopping everyone!
