My 3 Wardrobe Essentials



Think like a Blogger Prompt - 3 Wardrobe Essentials 

So today I thought I’d show you my 3 must have staple wardrobe items. They are probably no brainers if you’ve been following my blog for a while because they frequent almost every single post in some shape of form. While things like LBD’s and jeans are always hailed as wardrobe staples and I have to agree, there are a few items that my wardrobe would be incomplete without.

Striped Tee
I truly believe everyone should have at least one striped tee in their wardrobe. Chic, easy to style, versatile and are the perfect item to wear when you’re not sure what to wear. Stripes are a really neutral wardrobe item as well as they can be paired with pretty much any colour. Plus you get 10 Parisian points! Personally I think you can never have enough and I've never met a stripe that I didn’t like.

Fedora
A while back one of my friends told me that they hadn’t seen me without a Fedora in about 6 months. It’s probably true actually because I was straight up addicted to them and I have a tower of them in my room to prove my point. I don’t know why I like them so much, maybe it’s because Im so lazy with my hair but I just like the vibe they add to my outfits. They are warm and add a certain something to an outfit. Fedora wearing tips - If the brim of the hat is small, wear the hat more tilted towards the head with the front of the brim sitting on your forehead. With wide brim fedora’s wear them right on the top of your head.

Leather Jacket

My Forever 21 faux leather jacket has been a staple in my wardrobe for so long. I’ve actually had two of them after I lost one on a night out and then in some twist of fate I found one a year later in F21. These go with pretty much everything and are something that just take an outfit to the next level. I love pairing mine with girly dresses for a mix and match rock chic look. Yeah I just cringed at myself for writing Rock Chic. No one should ever say that ever.

    1. How Dr Eboehi The Great Spell Caster help Bring Back My Ex Lover: Husband

      Hello My name is Kathie Sherine, Am from USA, Texas. and I am very happy for posting on this blog on how a great spell caster helped me in bringing back the love of my life. I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like Dr Eboehi this world would be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell castes promised to help them but couldn't but with Dr Eboehi I tell you your problem is solved already. My Husband and I had been apart for 3 YEARS and I couldn't bear without living without him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster called Dr Eboehi and how great his work is. I contacted him via email (eboehispellcaster@yahoo.com) immediately and follow the step that he ask and in the next 48 hours my lover called me and was eager for my forgiveness and that he wished nothing more than to have me in his arms forever. I filled so much joy and happiness that I found Dr Eboehi, I hope you all here will find this testimony of mine and get your husband back in just 48 hours thanks... contact his email: eboehispellcaster@yahoo.com or call (208) 627-4749

  24. I agree, only I always feel self conscious in a hat and had one blow into the road a few times which isn't great. I have far to many striped tees and my leather jacket pretty much worn out from use.

  28. Love your 3 essentials! You can never go wrong with a striped tee - I own too many to count, lol. I wish I could pull off a fedora, but I can never find one that actually fits properly (apparently I have a big head, haha). Loving these blogger prompts, girly! :)

  29. I've never tried any of these but I think my style essential would be a bow, comfy sandals and a pink blazer. You do make me want to try a fedora gat though.
