wardrobe essentials: blazers and trenches

I know I've talked about this before here but I'm a firm believer in wardrobe building with essentials. In the bigger picture and long run, it just makes more sense - to me anyway!

Solid outerwear pieces is one of my favorites and currently I've been on a blazer kick again which means I've pulled out some oldies but goodies like my Zara longline blazer from probably 2012? See - good pieces always last no even if it's simply from Zara. I've also added a few more to my collection because I know they will all get plenty of wear including a tweed-ish black one, a tuxedo blazer and you guys already know my navy pinstripe one from earlier this year. And since it's Summer, I pulled out my favorite white trench from Line and Dot that is probably 2-3 years old now? It's so easy and effortless that I reach for it every spring/summer. I was also digging around for my white blazer but I think I somehow lost it at the dry cleaners the other year so I found a perfect light weight one from Zara (trusty Zara) that will easily join the white trench for countless seasons.

I always look at the material and construction of blazers/trenches when I'm buying one. I like mine to fit well especially in the shoulders so it looks sharp and clean. Who want's a dowdy looking blazer or trench? And sometimes if the blazer is so on point, I actually buy them in two sizes: one to be fitted and one for an oversized vibe.

And not necessarily on the essentials side, that pink trench. When it comes to more trendy, fun pieces like this pink baby, I allow myself one every now and then but I would honestly never spend much on it. This one is from MissGuided and was super affordable. I much prefer to put the bulk of my shopping budget towards things I know I won't get tired of easily - but yes sometimes I have a soft spot for something trendy like pink currently.
