As you guys know, I love wearing neutrals and classic pieces. I do mix in trendier pieces here and there, but in general my wardrobe is pretty neutral. I don’t quite consider myself a minimalist, but I definitely consider myself a versatilist (totally making that a word). The reason I love neutrals and classic pieces is because they’re so flippin’ versatile and give you a limitless outfit combinations.
The other reason I love versatile pieces is because, if you do it right, you can keep them and wear them for multiple seasons. Not all of my neutral pieces are timeless, but a lot of them are. And I don’t mind spending a little extra money on those items so that they’ll hold up longer. If you know you’re going to wear it for two, three, however many years, why not invest in a quality piece so that you’re not replacing it with the exact same item next year?
I thought I’d show you guys the types of things I don’t mind splurging on because they’re clothes that I actually keep for more than one year. I’ll also share different price points because I know splurging means something different to all of us. 🙂 Given the fact that we still have a couple of months of cold weather ahead, I figured I’d share my cold weather picks. And these are items that I’ve actually had in my closet and worn for at least three years! They may not all be the exact same item that I own since, like I said, I’ve had these things for a while, but they’re a current version of them!
Clothes that I actually keep for more than one year

If this is something you guys end up liking, I’ll totally do it again once we start trading our gloves for sandals, hehe. I’ll also share the types of things that I wear year round if that’s something y’all would be interested in too. Drop a comment below and let me know your thoughts!
