I’m heavily motivated a few times a year to do a massive closet edit. January is one of those times. As always, I intend to purge the unworn pieces I won’t be needing anytime soon. This includes things I’ve reserved for travel and need to be updated, occasion pieces that have grown tired, and styles I have too many variations on (my biggest problem). I’m imagining a highly curated closet with a parred down palette highlighted with a sprinkling of prints, plenty of great shoes (another problem) and collected bags.
I’ve been paying close attention to the pieces I reach for again and again. Neutral sweaters, black tops and jackets, straight or flared jeans (blue, black, ecru), and wide tailored pants are at the top of the list. Print blouses and dresses fall closely behind.
A uniform of late has been easy, soft jeans in a natural faded finish with a pale cashmere knit. I’ll pair this with cozy Uggs around the house or sneakers for running around. For an extra layer of warmth, I’ll toss on a peacoat or down vest. Cross body bags still work for me and I’d love one in winter white. The Victoria Beckham Cheeky Posh stick is often all I’ll use in the morning on cheeks and lips. It looks natural and stays put. In line with this pale palette, I’m giving my heavy black frames a breather and reaching for something lighter like this pair from a Brunello Cucinelli x Oliver Peoples collaboration.
A detailed edit of the closet purge will follow soon.

I just love a light, soft palette in the dead of winter!
It feels so fresh after the holidays…clean!
