Recent Additions To My Closet

May 2, 2016
New Clothes, J. Crew Caspian Plaid Boy Shirt,  J. Crew Billie Demi Boot Crop Jean, J. Crew Pleated Midi Skirt, Veja Esplar Sneakers

I talked about this before but I've really cut back on my clothing shopping since a major closet cleanout last year. I still add new pieces but I try to be deliberate with quality pieces and styles that I can still wear years from now. The last time I added to my wardrobe, it was a few classic black items but I have spring on my mind with these recent additions.

J. Crew Caspian Plaid Boy Shirt 
This is the first plaid shirt I've owned since college. Back then I had one that I got while interning at Ralph Lauren that I wore until it was practically threadbare. I like that this is a pastel plaid. J. Crew boy fit shirts run huge. I had to go down two sizes for a fitted look.

J. Crew Billie Demi Boot Crop Jean
A fun new silhouette with a higher waist and a little kick flare. These jeans are so flattering and comfortable and I've been wearing them a lot lately. Runs true to size.

J. Crew Pleated Midi Skirt
I got the striped version of this skirt last year which I wore it all the time. I think this navy polka skirt will be just as classic and versatile. I love the midi length and it has pockets! This skirt is generously sized so I went down one size.

Veja Esplar Sneakers
I was considering getting a pair of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers until I spotted these silver kicks and fell in love. And I love them even more in person. These sneakers not only look super cool but they're eco-friendly as well. They're going to look so cute with skirts and dresses as well as with more casual looks! These only come in whole sizes and run large.

What do you think of my new additions? Have you bought any clothing/accessories recently?

  1. I like J. Crew a lot! The skirt looks really great. I wish there was a store near where I live but the closest one is in Paris... Have a great week.

  11. Nice addition to your closet, I think my fav item is that midi skirt, but that shouldn't be a surprise since I'm a big fan of midi skirts. This flanner shirt looks very stylish as well, it is one of those items that always come in handy. I don't have one of my own at the moment, but there are a few I can steal from hubby, so that's settled:). I really like those silver sneakers. They have such a pretty shade to them, something whitish and metallish about them but still silver...how gorgeous. Bonus points for being eco-friendly.

    To tell you the truth, I didn't buy anything lately. I think the last time I bought something was back in January (two pairs of flare jeans). I guess I'm at a phase in my life when I feel like I have enough things in my closet. Next year I might make some new investments. I did receive one floral dress as a present from a friend for my birthday about a week ago. I didn't wear it yet but I probably will as soon as the weather stops being so wintery.

  12. I have the best excuse to add to my closet right now: Nothing fits me! Literally nothing, after one pair of eternity jeans ripped in the wrong parts (because I wore it to death, it isn't tight) I am down to one pair of trousers, so I have to go shopping next weekend with my sister. Could be worse...

  15. I really like your style, Rowena and each piece are timeless and can be worn regardless the current trend. I need to go shopping for clothes again too, it's been some time since I went clothes shopping.

  18. Oh haha I just got a pair of Adidas, they run SMALL, if you loo online a lot of people say they run big but they don't I had to get another pair. And these kicks are SO COOL! And yes I hear you about social media, I am getting sick of it too. Many say that blogging is going to replaced by IG and that is all anyone is going to do. Not sure about if that will actually happen but if so I would delete IG account. It is cool but not that cool.

  19. I love what you picked, great additions! I haven't bought any clothing or accessories lately. After cleaning out my closet again, I've been trying to adhere to the one in, one out rule. It's hard because I've been tempted by several pieces, but at least my wallet is happy :)

  28. I recognize myself reading your words. I also did a major cleaning of my closet recently and I was surprised what a huge amount of clothes went to the trash. I will try to buy only pieces that I know I would be wearing years from now. I really like your spring shopping items. The skirt is very cute, as well as the sneakers. Have a nice day, Rowena! xo

  30. I couldn't agree more with your quality over quantity philosophy - I've cut on my clothes shopping considerably, too. I'm really into midi skirts right now, and this one looks just perfect! Can't wait to see how you wear it!
