Top 10 in My Closet

Katie of Let's Be Preppy! did a really fun post a few months ago (see her post here) and I just had to do my own. It is SO hard to narrow down a whole closet to just 10 things! I decided to just include clothing and shoes. And looking at my list now I feel like I've left a few things off that I really love! But these were the first things I picked out so that's what I'm going with.

These are the basics that I think every girl should have in her closet (little black dress, white top, favorite jeans, etc)! I can make multiple outfits out of these items and that was my goal!

1. Truly Madly Deeply Nautical Pullover (sweater/sweatshirt). I wear this as a top. I have it in anchors and sailboats. I usually pair it with jeans. Soldout online but I've seen some in the sale racks at Urban Outfitters.
2. Old Navy Crochet Mock-Neck Top (I have this in white and black). I usually wear this with jeans and a black cardigan. When I worked in an office, I wore this with nice black pants.
3. Vineyard Vines Sandy Dollar Top. I usually wear this with jeans or black pants (like lululemon pants) and my gold and pink Kate Spade cardigan. This is my official going out top.
4. Kate Spade flats. My so called fancy shoes. I rarely wear heels so I need a nice pair of ballet flats. I wore these to my sister's wedding. Can be dressed up with a dress or dressed down with jeans.
5. Gap Always Skinny jeans. You MUST have a pair of jeans that you love. If you find a pair that you love, BUY MULTIPLE!
6. J.Crew sandals. I have these in gold and black. I wear them ALL THE TIME! With dresses or jeans or even the critter shorts (#7).
7. J.Crew critter shorts. I have multiple pairs but the anchor ones are my favorite!
8. Black cardigan. My favorite is one I got at Zara. I wish I had bought another one. I love the fit and it is so comfortable. I pair it with the white top (#2) and jeans (#5) or dress (#10).
9. J.Crew riding boots. I love these. Bought them on sale years ago. I pair them with jeans (#5) and nautical top (#1) for a casual daytime look. Or with my black dress (#10) for a night out (yes, I mix black and brown!)
10. Old Navy black dress. Every girl needs a little black dress. I found this one at Old Navy and it has been my go to dress for years. I wear it A LOT! Wish I had bought a spare.
