Life In Balance: Project #3 – Wardrobe (update)

I didn’t intend to be moving on with this project so soon, but after watching the Christmas episode of New Girl I became obsessed with the idea of wearing a sparkly belt to holiday events (like Jess). I finally found one at J Crew and ordered it in both gold and silver. Apparently a few people had the same idea as me, because both colours are now sold out. I wore the gold version on Christmas Eve and I plan on wearing the silver on New Years Eve.

I also stumbled across the Forever 21 Ponte Knit Jacket in hunter green and it was too cute to resist, so I took the opportunity to also order my favourite jeans and a navy sweater to make up for the shipping cost. Of course I won’t be wearing the jacket or sweater any time soon, but it’ll be nice to have a few new things to wear as the seasons change in March. As it stands, my wardrobe shopping tally for 2013 now looks like this –

2x Black Pencil Skirts
1x Black Pants
1x Black Cropped Pants
1x Dark Denim Skinny Leg Jeans (1 pair purchased)
4x Blouses
2x Black Tee
2x Black Tank/Singlet
4x Cardigans
1x Black, Grey or Navy Sweaters (1 sweater purchased)
1x Blazer
1x Black Fitted Coat (to replace H&M trench)
1x Maxi Dress
2x Casual Dresses
2x Black or Jewel Toned ‘Evening’ Dresses
1x Country Road Opaque Tights
1x Scarf

I don’t have plans to buy anything else in the next month or so, but we’ll have to wait and see if anything catches my eye in the end of year sales…

4 Thoughts on “Life In Balance: Project #3 – Wardrobe (update)

  1. I’m going to steal this list to build my wardrobe!

  2. Which are your favourite jeans? I’ve never tried any denim from Forever 21, are they good?

    • I’ve been buying the Forever 21 skinnies for a couple of years now. Quality is pretty poor, but when I pay $10 per pair I’m happy to wear them to death and then replace them!
