New Year – new wardrobe staples! 

I’ve decided that each month I’m going to summarise all of the new additions to my wardrobe to help me reflect on what I’ve bought and whether I’ve been making the same mistakes again. 

One thing that clearing out my wardrobe taught me was the brands I love and the ones I need to steer clear from (*cough cough* Primark, Boohoo). So this is a good chance to put my learnings to the test! 

For ease of reading (and to indulge my love of lists!) I’ve listed all of my purchases below;

1. Light pink shirt – Topshop £26 


This is my favourite shirt of the month – the colour, the fit, the fabric – just perfect! 

2. Light grey jumper – Missguided £7 


This was a great bargain and a perfect staple for my wardrobe. The colour is lovely, it drapes well, it’s a little on the thin side but I can just wear a top underneath! WIN! 

3. Black matte Doc Martens est. £100


Okay, these were a Christmas present but I cannot get enough of them and have worn them (not joking) every single day since I got them. They’ve fitted into my wardrobe perfectly and go with EVERYTHING! I’m sure if you look back you’ll see them on every single outfit post of this year so far! 

4. Black dress £7 Missguided 


I’ve been loving Missguided this month and the fact that they have a now released an app is pretty dangerous for my bank account! I needed a new black long sleeved dress as I threw out my old one when I had the clear out (it didn’t Bring me Joy – check out my post on my clear out here) and am more than happy with its replacement! I love the button detailing on the shoulder 😍

5. Khaki cropped long sleeve top £3 Missguided 


I wouldn’t be me and true to my word in my previous post about my love of Khaki if I didn’t purchase anything in this colour! Another Missguided bargain to add to my staples! I don’t think I’d wear it with these jeans, maybe a nice black midi skirt and my DM’s (just for a change 😜).

6. Cream peplum top £28 Miss Selfridge 


I have the black version of this and fell in love today when I saw that Miss Selfridge were offering this in cream! I’ve worn the black one to death (wore it yesterday in fact) so I know that I’ll be getting my money’s worth from this piece! 

I’m going to call it a month now and ease up on the spending! Let me know your favourite pieces and if you’ve found some gems this month in the comments! 

Until next time …
