sunday, january 11: january core collection

Kendra Pearce - Tuesday Afternoon - January Core Collection

One of my goals this year is to simplify my wardrobe so that it really works for me. Rather than focusing on the negative (getting rid of items by “clearing out” my closet or only wearing certain items), I’ve taken a different approach. I’m focusing on the positive (what I absolutely love)! Each month I will curate a selection of 10 core pieces on which to focus. Why ten? It’s a nice round number and seems to work well for me. My ten core pieces will consist of 4 tops (shirts, blouses, sweaters), 2 bottoms (pants, jeans, shorts), 1 dress/skirt, 1 jacket/coat, and 2 pairs of shoes. I will choose my pieces based on three criteria: Do I love it? Does it fit? Does it make me feel good? Each morning I will pick one item from my core collection and build an outfit around that piece. The rest of my ensemble can come from my core collection as well as the rest of my closet. My hope is that at the end of the year I can combine all the core collections into one well curated and functioning wardrobe. So without further ado, here is my very first core collection.
