New Additions To My Closet

June 2, 2017
Closet additions

I've been mostly shopping my own closet for the past year but following a seasonal closet cleanout, I did a little shopping IRL.  I'm still all about building a timeless wardrobe and adhering to only buying strategic pieces that are classic, versatile and work with existing pieces already in my closet. I actually didn't own much black so I've been slowly working in more. And when the weather warms up, I pretty much live in dresses and skirts. Midi has been my preferred hemline for a number of years and it's nice that the length is so popular now because it was impossible to find when it wasn't. I managed to take advantage of some great sales and made the most of gift cards and coupons. I spent less than $30 on five of the pieces and two were just over $40. The only item that topped the $100 mark are the sneakers and they're 40% off. I think I'm set for awhile. My husband's wardrobe has also gotten an upgrade at the same time since I also do his clothes shopping.

1. Who What Wear Bardot Midi Dress
I went to Target to buy some bread and ended up with this chic polka dot dress. It's so flattering and comfortable. Also slightly longer than shown on the model.
Fits TTS / Purchased size S

2. Gap Embroidered Denim Tank
This tank has such lovely details and looks so much more expensive than it was.
Fits slightly large / Purchased size XS

3. Who What Wear Colorblocked Pleated Midi Skirt
A high end look at a bargain price. I've worn this skirt a few times and always get compliments on it.
Fits slightly large / Purchased size XS

4. COS A-Line Wool Skirt
This classically styled tailored skirt is a wardrobe staple that I can see myself wearing for many years to come.
Fits TTS / Purchased size 6

5. J. Crew Clip Dot Tiered Skirt
The swingy tiered silhouette is feminine and versatile and I love the pockets. Looks great paired with the Gap embroidered tank.
Fits slightly large / Purchased size 4

6. H&M Culottes with Ruffles
The ruffles are a really nice detail and my husband says these culottes make my legs look super long which is always a plus.
Fits TTS / Purchased size 6

7. Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Leather-Trimmed Flyknit Sneakers
I was coveting a pair of Nike Air Thea's as well as a pair of Nike Flyknit's so this pair gets me both. They're incredibly lightweight and the gold adds a touch of luxe.
Fits TTS / Purchased size 8

8. Victoria Beckham for Target Asymmetric Scallop Trim Top
This was the one piece I wanted from this collab and it does not disappoint. The scallops are so cute and it's really well made.
Fits TTS / Purchased size S





Have you purchased any new clothing lately?

  1. It is true, midi was so hard to find only a few years back, which I always found strange. It is the perfect length for work after all.

  4. I remember you saying that you wanted to build a timeless wardrobe. It seems to be a long process but I am sure you are on your way, Rowena. Midi skirts are very appropriate for the office as the length is just fine. Going to the groceries for some bread and ending up with something new - haha, this made me laugh. The sneakers look very comfy, I am not surprised they are the most pricey from all the things you bought. Love the VB top! Enjoy the weekend, Rowena!

  5. These are all such great classic wardrobe pieces, Rowena. The gold touch on those Nikes are rad, and love that COS skirt as well. We have one COS store here and I think I should really go and browse even.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. I can see you wearing all of these pieces. I think number one, two and three are my favourites. I'm such a fan of midi dresses and love detailed summer tanks, and pleated skirts. I only recently purchased more casual pieces: a chambray shirt and Tees because most of what I wear is dressed up office clothing. Happy weekend, Rowena!

  8. I am pretty close to your style and adore the Bardot dress, dot skirt, and that scallop top! I got too many pieces from the VB collab (for my kids though!) I wish I had gotten some of the scallop pieces but really liked the calla lily print.

  13. I need to try a good midi skirt, mine skirts have always been above the knee and as I am closer to 40, I need to invest in a more age appropriate clothes. xx

  14. I love a midi hemline as well although I've been doing a lot of minis lately. What great finds! For under 30 bucks, this is a steal. My friend bought something for me from the VB for Target collection, I can't wait to rock it. Enjoy your haul Rowena!

  17. Love what you bought, Rowena. Love the timeless, elegant touch of every single piece. Victoria Beckham is one of my favorite designer and she always design timeless pieces, I think that's the reason I love her collection so much. Enjoy your weekend, girl.

  18. I need to start being more selective in my own wardrobe, especially when it comes to acquiring classic pieces. I don't think I'm too far off in terms of basics but I do think I could up it in terms of quality. I feel like at my age I should be focusing on quality. I love that colour block skirt. That is such a pretty shape and hue, I can see why you're getting compliments on it. Same goes for that J Crew skirt. I love J Crew. I haven't shopped there in years too. I'm constantly browsing online but I think I prefer going in store for them.

  19. I am trying to do this too and choose more carefully. And yes LOVE the midi length. Being a small size but being almost 5'8" most dresses and skirts are tops on me so I was over joyed when the midi length became popular and I hope it sticks around!
