Style Staples // Accessories

Quality not quantity.  One of my goals for the new year is to edit my wardrobe, keeping this in mind.  This year I want to dress well with less for less.  Over the last year or two I've become more comfortable with parting with items that I don't wear, that are damaged, and ill fitting.  As I continue my editing, I've found that I don't need as much variety as I once thought.  It's not how much you have, it's how you use what you have.  Keeping this is mind there are certain timeless pieces that will give you more versatility than others.  When it comes to achieving certain looks and dressing for certain occasions, some things will give you more bang for your buck.  Over the next...(however long it takes!), I'll be sharing my picks as well as some styling inspiration starting with accessory basics!

 As I get older my style is definitely becoming more about dressing well with less for less, although sometimes that involves spending a little more at first for quality pieces that will last.  What are some of your style goals?  What are your "go to" accessories, any favorites?
