My Top 11 Wardrobe essentials

So I’ve been helping clients a ton lately with paring down their closets to only the items they wear often and helping them figure out how to fill in the gaps with pieces that they’ll be able to layer, use during most seasons and keep their wardrobe current. I’ve finally been able narrow it down to these 11 pieces that I think are essential to any closet during any season.

The Denim Shirt…

This staple is perfect alone with a pair of jeans, layered under a sweater, T-shirt or sweatshirt or buttoned all the way up with a statement necklace. I wear mine during every season of the year in all different ways. I love that it can be casual or dressy, too.

The Biker Jacket…

Another great item that can be worn in any season of the year. It’s perfect over a flowy summer dress, paired with a casual graphic tee or worn over a long sweater in the winter. I would definitely recommend one that is comfortable and has some stretch to it to maximize it’s use.

The Graphic Tee…

There are so many great uses for a graphic tee. I love them under cardigans, tucked into a skirt or worn under denim overalls. It’s a great way to bring in color and pattern to any outfit.

The Light Weight Scarf…

I say lightweight because then it can be used during more than one season. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons for this type of scarf and are great when you don’t really want to plan an outfit but throw on a cute scarf with a solid shirt and your outfit is automatically amped up.

The Distressed Jean…

Goes with everything, worn during any season and great dressed up or down- need I say more!

The Black Bootie…

Paired with a cropped jean or worn with a t-shirt dress these add so much to a simple outfit, plus they’re comfortable!

The Flannel…

Fall, Winter and Spring are the perfect seasons for this shirt. This is my go-to for the ‘I want to be comfortable but still cute look’.

The Denim Jacket…

Another great layering item in the spring, summer and fall, this jacket never seems to go out of style. I love to wear it with chunky scarves in the Fall, over sundresses in the summer and pretty much with anything in the spring.

The Baseball Cap…

The perfect solution to the ‘no wash hair day’ or the ‘I don’t want to do anything to my hair’ day. Baseball caps make any outfit lighter and more fun.

The Crisp White Shirt…

This piece is timeless. I think any stylist would tell you the same thing. I layer it, I wear it alone, etc., etc. Paired with white jeans and any fun shoe (sandals, leopard flats, red booties) make the perfect statement outfit in any season. Add a fur to it in the winter and it’s cozy, too.

The Tennie…

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with these but right now I’m in love. T-shirt dresses, cropped jeans, short skirts- paired with a cute tennie and you can go all day long!

Holiday Party Outfits

Texture is one of the best ways to make a statement with any outfit planned for a special event, especially during the holidays. My favorite as of late is…..VELVET!!


This bodysuit from Nordstrom Rack is under $20 and is fabulous paired with pants or a skirt.



This never seems to go out of style during the holidays and always adds just the right of ‘bling’ for a holiday gathering.


This sequin tee from Anthropologie is both comfortable and festive. I love the ‘winter white’ look this outfit gives when paired with white dress pants.


Last, but definitely not least, is FUR!!!!! This timeless favorite can be added to an all black outfit and heels to make it an easy and warm way to attend a holiday affair.

Denim Gaucho Pants Styled 3 Ways


I’d been dying for pants like these and I finally found the perfect ones at Soel Boutique. Their new website makes it simple to buy any of their fabulous pieces. The pants are lightweight, stretchy and SUPER comfortable. I love their versatility since they can be dressed up or down. This look is more dressed up by adding a high heel clog and simple collared white shirt.


The waist sits at the perfect height- not too short and not too high. Adding jewelry and a clutch with this outfit makes it a little more fancy.

pants1The pants work great with a low heel- love this outfit for an everyday look- you can never have enough stripes!pants2

Finally, totally casual might be my favorite look with these cropped denims.

pants5Tennies and a tee work great with them. Can’t wait to make good use of these this spring and summer with how comfortable and versatile they are!!

Winter Coat Picks


This gray trench coat from H&M is the perfect color and length to wear with so much.


I love the high collar and how it keeps me warm during the really cold months.


Shearling is my new favorite coat material- soooooo comfortable and warm!! This one is also from H&M .


When I saw this TopShop coat from Nordstrom I knew I had to have it! The neutral color and soft, loose fitting fabric was exactly what my wardrobe needed. I purchased it in a couple of sizes bigger than what I normally wear so it could wear as more of an oversize coat.


Not to mention the fur collar- it’s like a built in scarf!


And finally my winter wouldn’t be complete without the purchase of a new faux fur. This patchwork, waist length fur works just as well with pants or jeans as it does with skirts and dresses.


Plus the color of the patches works well with so much!! Such a great purchase from H&M .

1 Dress, 4 Ways


This dress was such a great find at Nordstrom Rack. I knew that it would be perfect for this holiday season to dress up or down.


I just added some jewelry and heels to dress it up even more, perfect for a holiday party or Christmas Sunday outfit.


Love how the darker lip color by Mac and layered necklace from Nordstrom add just the right amount of elegance to compliment the dress.


To make it more wintry I added this blush fur from H&M and closed toe heel booties. Even though the dress is thin, these additions make it warm enough for th0se colder days.


Going for a more casual feel, I layered a chunky scarf from Nordstrom and denim jacket.


These black wedge booties from Nordstrom Rack are great for a contrasting color to the neutral dress.

dressleatherLeather and lace! Probably one of my favorite combos. I like the mixing of urban and country with these added pieces.


And a hat makes everything cuter- right?! Burgundy and blush is a combo I’m obsessed with right now- the perfect mix of feminine and chic.

Vintage Fringe Fall Jackets


I pretty much passed out when I saw this jacket!! The color, the length, the wide flap collar- everything about it was exactly what I never knew I always wanted!! I had to have it in my life for fall- no question:)  Vintage Fringe offers so many great jacket options from pea coats, short and long, to show stoppers that you won’t want to take off because they make the entire outfit. Shop this casual jacket directly at Erykah Waterfall Jacket – I promise you won’t be disappointed.

I had a similar feeling about this Tiffany Fringe Jacket as I knew it would be that ‘wow’ piece to add to my Fall jacket collection. fringejacket

Put it over a white tee and you’re good to go- comfortable, warm and unique- I seriously cannot get enough of fringe right now.fringejacket2

Finally, this French Terry Sherpa Jacket is the perfect combo of dressy, chic and comfortable- a winning combo in my book.


The length works great with pants as well as skirts and dresses. The zipper details and sherpa lining add great style and make it unique. But you can’t beat how comfortable and warm it is- which in Utah where I’m wearing my jackets all day most days- is an added bonus!blackjacket2
