Happy Friday ladies. Spring isn’t exactly right around the corner for me and I know many of you are still buried in snow. Today I’m joining one of your favorite bloggers, and my friend Susan, to chat about the clothes we’re reaching for most often this time of year. Women’s wardrobe basics will vary by climate and lifestyle so here are some wardrobe essentials for how I’m living now.

In a nutshell, I’m reaching for a cozy sweater (cashmere or not), jeans or slim pants, flat footwear, and a scarf. I bought this sweater at the outlet mall in Palm Springs last week (do I ever wish we’d had more than an hour there) and found it here on sale. I’m wearing a medium.
I wear scarves year-round but they get more use during the colder months. These lightweight silk and cashmere scarves are gossamer-thin yet substantial enough to wrap several times without being too hot. Mine is several years old but they’re always coming out with pretty new colors and patterns.
Uncomfortable footwear has zero place in my wardrobe now and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon. I’m reaching for shoes with extra cushioning these days so some of my favorite ballet flats have been relegated to short outings. I have to make myself not wear these sneakers every day because they tick all the boxes for me.
Vests are a great option in my climate so I’ve begun to amass a small collection. They never go out of style so I always keep an eye out for unique ones.
Blazers are often all I need to stay warm and I like how they add a level of polish to my outfit.
There are those sneakers again 🙂 If you had asked me a few years ago if I would be wearing slip-on sneakers many days of the week, I would have said no. Life has changed so my wardrobe essentials have changed with it.
If your sartorial choices remain consistent year to year…as many of mine do, now’s a great time to either update or refresh parts of your winter wardrobe essentials because almost everything is marked way down.
Now let’s go see what Susan at une femme d’un certain âge is reaching for this time of year.
What are the wardrobe essentials that you reach for every winter?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
