So I've decided to start a new series. It's called Closet Staples and I think you all are going to love it! Ever since moving to NYC, I've been really careful about what I add to my closet. It's been more about quality over quantity (which at first I was forced into because of the limited space I have), but I've loved having a smaller, more curated closet with pieces I absolutely love instead of pieces I feel partial to or don't wear at all. I've adopted a 1 in 1 out policy (sometimes even a 1 in 2 out policy) for every time I purchase a piece, and I LOVE it! I sell my gently used stuff through Poshmark, Tradesy & eBay. A little extra income to pay for new clothing? It's a great system.
With that, I've decided to start the Closet Staples series to give you guys what I think are quality, important pieces that every woman should have in her closet, starting today with the Chelsea boot. This is actually a more recent piece that I've been coveting, but the style of the Chelsea boot is sleek and absolutely timeless. I'm not sure what took me so long to hop on board with this, but I ended up finding an insane steal on a pair of Chloe's on eBay, and then I also discovered Freda Salvador, and it was all over from there. Check out some of my other favorites below!
If you're going to splurge, I highly recommend the Acne Jensen's or a pair of Chloe boots. The Jensen's have been around a while, and are extremely popular within the fashion community... For good reason. The pointy toe and slight heel give the boot such a sleek, edgy look. On the other hand, these are the perfect wallet friendly pair - they are IDENTICAL to the Jensen, for a fourth of the price. That is, if you can find them. They're sold out in a ton of colors and sizes unfortunately. I'm dying to grab the burgundy shade. And lastly these. They're under $50. Done and done.
