    Yes ma’am!
    Buy quality and u have it for years.
    I wore a tweed blazer a few days ago ,similar to the one in today’s post, that I bought at Talbots 20 years ago.
    I have beautiful sweaters from Talbots,LandsEnd & shirts from Ralph Lauren that are dependable basics. Chico’s is great too!
    One reason I love your posts,u help keep us looking classic but current.

    Quality classics are the best. I know that I am need of a blazer or two & some new pants, as I have lost a little weight recently. My closet cleaning is on my calendar for next Tuesday.

    I love all these suggestions. I worked in a very conservative field for years – wearing suits and heels every day. As time went by when people started dressing more casually, and I wanted to simplify my life, as well as max out my 401K at the same time, my wardrobe became more of a capsule wardrobe before it was even called a capsule. I always have bought high quality classics that I could mix and match. Two days a week I wore black slacks, one day a week I wore a shorter black skirt, another day it was taupe, and one day a week I even wore dark wash jeans. A young intern in the office complimented me on my style, and she said she had never seen me wear the same thing twice! Not really!! It was just a matter of purchasing high quality classics and occasional shopping with a great deal of thought put into a purchase before making it. One particular favorite outfit was a taupe jacket and pants that I wore with a black turtleneck, white shirt, or a nice black or white tee. I wore that for probably close to 6-7 years. Since retiring I still like to look sharp – I just purchased a black moto jacket to add to my wardrobe.

    That’s a lovely outfit. It finally got very cold today here in NC, so boots would be good! I love the notion of shopping in one’s closet–I have so many clothes, and this year I told myself I was going to limit spending on new things. Turns out lots of things seem “new,” as I’ve combined them in different ways, and I have been really enjoying it. I’m saving money, too. Always a good thing. Looking forward to your posts to come.

    love the 80s dress for success feel of this outfit…fashionally nostalgic, with just enough current to make it work. i often struggle to do this, i find it hard to take a look from the past and make it look current.

    My husband gave me a 14K gold necklace, similar to the one you are wearing, 25 years ago for our anniversary. I wear it everyday, with everything. It has been the best investments in my wardrobe.

    I remember Glamour and Mademoiselle magazines always had a feature about mix and matches your wardrobe, so that everything goes together. I have followed that edict for decades.
