Two Teens And Their Mama: Favorite Pieces From My Wardrobe

Favorite Pieces From My Wardrobe


Update:  Sorry my post is up so late today.  We had a very big windstorm last night, and in the middle of finishing this up - poof, no power for 12 hours!

I'm linking up today with the Lifestyle Sistas to share the five favorite pieces from our wardrobes.

SO hard to choose.  Clothes are a hobby for me, and I like almost everything in my closet. If something's not quite right, I thrift it.  But I'll do anything for my Sistas, so I thought long and hard, and this is what I came up with!  I cheated a little bit, and some of the "pieces" are more like "categories" :).

Favorite piece that I've had forever.  My Dale of Norway sweater.  Right after we graduated from college, my boyfriend (now hubby) spent a month backpacking in Norway, and he brought this back from the town of Dale for me.  It's handmade and the details are absolutely beautiful.  Even though it's 25 years old and I've worn it quite a bit, the sweater still looks brand new.

Favorite accessory.  I love, love, love scarves, and I have a lot of them.  They instantly add a little something to any outfit.  This is just a small portion of my collection, and I would like to find a better way to store them - but I wear them all.



Favorite new piece.  This Daniel Rainn blouse that I received in my very first Stitch Fix. I love the fit and the colors, and there are little iridescent polka dots on the fabric.   This top makes me happy every time I wear it.


Favorite shoes.  If I was a proper fashion blogger, I would choose a pair of Jimmy Choo or Manolo Blahnik pumps.  But my favorites are my Skechers Go Walks, the most comfortable pair of tennies I've ever owned.  I can walk for hours and my feet don't even notice.  And I think they're pretty cute too.


Favorite piece that I wear most often.  I have a LOT of sweaters.  I'm cold all the time, and where I live I can wear them from September to June.  I've got cardigans, pullovers, lightweight, turtlenecks - this is just a small sampling.  I think my hubby is pretty tired of my sweater collection - but until we move somewhere warmer, they aren't going anywhere!


Check out my other Lifestyle Sistas to see their favorite wardrobe pieces, and link up with us below.  Be sure to come back next Friday when the Style Me Bloggers will be doing a Christmas Home Tour.  I can't wait for that!

  5. Oooh, I saw on Pinterest to use shower curtain hooks attached to a hanger to store your scarves. So there you go :-). LOVE your Norway story. That sounds like an awesome adventure! I'm Norwegian, so that really speaks to me and the sweater must be a wonderful reminder of that time. I bet you relive it just a little every time you wear it.
