I love going shopping in the new year (I mean come on, THE SALES!) But normally when I shop after the new year I end up buying a lot of random trendy things that I end up barely wearing and eventually donating. This year I've been planning to buy some much needed essentials.
I've been in desperate need for a good pair of black skinny jeans, and I've been eyeing these ones. The ones I currently own Im pretty sure are leggings from American Eagle 5 years ago, so it's safe to say I was in need to an upgrade. These jeans retail for between $110-$125 but they fit amazingly, so finding them for under $50 made me know I HAD to get them.
As a business student, having a black blazer is kind of essential. I'm going into my second semester as a junior and I still didn't have a black blazer, let alone a decent blazer of any kind. This one is a classic and I can wear it with jeans or dress it up when I need to. Being a marketing major I won't need to have a ton of suiting apparel, but a fun blazer will be necessary.
Every denim jacket I've ever owned either had a bunch of holes in it, had sweatshirts for sleeves, or didn't fit properly. All I've wanted was a good denim jacket that I could wear with anything and keep as a staple in my closet. I love this one because it has some stretch in it and it's just a classic colored denim.
I can never leave the J.Crew Factory store without buying a necklace! I love all of the simple statement necklaces and this one is no different. For only $25 I couldn't say no.
Overall I left feeling like I had bought basics that I will actually use so often and that will last me a long time! If you want to shop what I'm currently wearing check out my new "Shop My Closet" page. I'll be updating this page as often as my wardrobe changes!
