Building My Work Wardrobe : Basics

Hey, ya'll well I'm headed back to work in a few days! That means Summer Vacation will officially be over (Alexa play Mariah Carey You Will Always Be My Baby)! Yes, I'm a little sad but I'm looking forward to a brand new school year and what's to come. With that being said let's talk fashion and what I'll be wearing to work.

Over the school year, some of my items go through wear and tear. Some items I can no longer fit or just need to be found in my closet.  Over the past two weeks, I've been slowly but surely re-building my wardrobe for work. I'm not talking about purchasing a whole new wardrobe but slowly building a foundation so I can add pieces throughout the school year each season. So today I'm sharing tips on how I re-build my wardrobe for a new school year.

1. Take An Inventory
This time I did things a little different, I knew exactly what I needed when I shopped for a few things. But after picking up a few things I was able to clean out my closet and throw away things I didn't need. By that time I was able to check and see what I already have and I still need to complete the basics of my wardrobe.

2. Create A Checklist

Now that I've taken and Inventory of what I have  I'm able to create a checklist of what I still need. I would hate to go shopping and purchase items that I already have in my closet.

3. Purchase Basics
When I say basics I mean items that I can pair with different items throughout the school.  No matter the season I want to be able to create different looks with each item for example.

4. Where Do I Shop?

When I'm shopping  I tend to find plenty of good deals. I head straight to the clearance rack and from there I find so many pieces. then I will find my way to the full priced rack.  Here are a few of my favorite places to shop for my clothes.

  • TjMaxx
  • Marshalls
  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Belk
  • Lane Bryant
