Floral or Patterned Dresses (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Floral or Patterned Dresses (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
It took me awhile to get on the floral wagon.  I have been on it for quite a few years, but I remember when they became popular I was a bit hesitant.  I only have 2 dresses in my whole wardrobe!  This can be a bit difficult.

So when it comes to floral or patterned dresses I have to be very picky.  I need it to be beautiful, but I also need it to be versatile.  One year I had a striped dress, but this year I went with a floral dress.  If you have a small wardrobe know that you can swap them out when you get tired of one of them.  I tend to wear one for at least a year.  If I love it more then I continue wearing it.

Honestly, if the dress is not too fancy I wear these often.  I love wearing dresses and skirts in the Summer.  So I will wear them during the week (even to an event as casual as going to the park) and also to church or more formal occasions.  I have worn all different shoes with my dresses.  Again, because I make sure that it can be multi-functional.  I have worn sneakers, boots, booties, high heels, flats, sandals, and flip flops.

Simple High Heels Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Simple High Heels Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Question:  Do high heels and motherhood go hand in hand?  I mean really?  I knew I wanted high heels in my wardrobe.  I am blessed with some height.  I am not the tallest girl in the world, but still I am tall enough.  So I don't NEED heels, but I wanted them.  

So I had to set out and look for simple high heels shoes.  I like to go the simple route, because I don't wear them often.  I need to be able to run after a toddler that doesn't want to do something.  I need to hold my kids hands and not worry about toppling over.  Do you get what I am saying?  My simple high heels shoes are great!

Simple High Heels Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Heels can be worn with just about anything.  However, as a mom I tend to wear them to church and if I have a fun night out that I want to dress it up a bit then I will wear them.  If I still worked in an office I would be wearing them a lot more often.  However, they get about one use every week.  That is okay with me.  

Just remember you can wear them with nearly anything.  They do tend to dress up an outfit, even jeans.  So think of that when you are pulling out your outfit every day.

Since I don't tend to wear mine very often I get mine from either Jane or the next recommendation.  I splurge on other things, but heels are not one of those things.  If you are looking for a good deal then this is a great place to start.  Search for "heels" in the search bar to see if anything comes up.  Also, there are a ton of outfit ideas when you search this way!

Women's Flats Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Women's Flats Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
I haven't worn my flats that much lately.  However, Spring is here and I see a lot of women's flats shoes being worn!  I love Spring and all the fun things that I get to pull out after the Winter.

Flats are so practical as a mom.  You can run after you kids in them and not worry about breaking your ankle.  They are a perfect choice for many different styles.

Women's Flats Shoes (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Flats can be worn to the park.  They can be worn to church.  They can be worn to a girls night out.  There are so many ways to style flats.  Again, and I know I keep saying this, but I like to go with a more neutral color if I am only going to have one pair of women's flats in my closet.  I want my options to be open. 

I wear them with my tailored cropped pants.  I wear them with skirts and dresses.  I wear them with jeans.  They go with all the different shirts I own too.  So really the possibilities are endless.  Even if you aren't a mom you still need a pair of women's flats in your closet.

Women's Cardigan Outfit Ideas (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Women's Cardigan Outfit Ideas (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Do you want to know my problem with having a women's cardigan in my closet?  It is the thing that I struggle with all the time when it comes to cardigans.  It can be frustrating. 

It is the fact that I want ALL the cardigans.  I love them.  I don't want just one.  I want like 50.  I wish I was joking.  However, I have stuck with one AND I have survived.  I know...crazy.  

Ways to wear a women's cardigan

Honestly, you can wear a cardigan with EVERYTHING.  Here is my tip though.  If going with a minimalist wardrobe then you need to think about what you are pairing the cardigan with.  So think about the color.  I used to have a black, white, and gray one.  Now I have this navy one.  Those colors go with most things.  That is how I wanted it. 

I also went with a more loose fit or in this case a little more "chunky" because I wanted it to be able to go over any type of sleeve (for the most part).  That way if you have a sleeve that flares more you won't have a huge bulge in the arm of your cardigan.  I hope that makes sense.

Cuffed Pants for Women (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Cuffed pants for women might be an easy category for every women to check off.  It seems like a majority of women have them in their closets already anyways.  They are great because they go with anything.  I like to get my in jean form because that way they are more versatile.  

You can choose which style of pants best fits your personality and style.  Do what you love to wear.  I usually say in these posts to pick something that will go with a lot of things.  Remember if you have a small wardrobe this is something you want to do. 

Ways to wear cuffed pants

Honestly, the possibilities are endless.  I wear mine with any type of shoes.  Although, when I wear these pants with my boots, you don't see the cuff, but I still wear them with my boots.  I wear them with all types of shirts too.  There isn't a type of shirt that I don't wear with them.

Honestly the best place to buy them is your favorite place to buy pants.  If you have a shape of pants that you like then buy some skinny or straight jeans and then fold them up to add the cuffed part.

This is where my current cuffed pants are from.  There are SO MANY types of pants here that you can find what works for you and then cuff them.

Blazers and Denim Jackets for Women (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Blazers and Denim Jackets for Women (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Let's talk about blazers and denim jackets for women for a bit.  I liked the idea of having a denim jacket in my closet, but I also liked the idea of having a blazer.  I knew I had to pick just one so I thought about the pros and cons.  For the denim jacket I saw pros in the fact that I am a stay at home mom.  I rarely have to get dressed up for anything so more casual made sense.  However, there is a con with that too.  I loved working in an office for many reasons, but one of those reasons was the fact that I got to dress up. 

So any chance I can get I loved the idea of wearing a blazer.  I also knew I could make it look more casual at times.  So in the end that is what I went with.  This is completely a personal decision.  You pick what you will wear more and what you feel comfortable wearing.  

Ways to wear blazers and denim jackets
Blazers and Denim Jackets for Women (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Lets first talk about blazers.  You can wear blazer with just about anything.  I love mine to dress up a graphic tee.  They are great over blouses and any of your shirts as long as the colors go well together.  They are great with jeans, but also great with skirts and dresses.  I wear my blazer with all my shoes and it works.  If I had to give a piece of advice it would be to get a blazer that has long arms.  Mine is 3/4 length on the arms and I wish I would have done full length on the arms.  If you only have one then I would say go long.  Also, go with more of a color that will go with a lot of shirts.  I went with burgundy and kind of wish I would have went more neutral.  Just some things to think about.  I am going to be getting a new one soon and will get neutral with long arms.  

Now lets move to denim.  Denim jackets can make a more dressy outfit seem more casual.  So I don't recommend wearing them to something super formal.  But you can still wear them with dresses and skirts.  The only thing I say to NOT do with a denim jacket is to wear denim jacket with denim colored jeans.  Wear them with your black skinny jeans...another reason to get black skinny jeans.

It seems they always have quite a few denim jackets in stock, but the blazers are hit and miss.  However, I like to check them out because the prices are great!

I like the different looks you get from Venus blazers and their denim jackets.  They are great priced as well which helps.

Women's Fashion Sneakers (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Women's Fashion Sneakers (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
I have never been a sneaker girl.  I don't know why, but I haven't.  I always wanted to be and I would buy them and then NEVER wear them.  So when I decided that women's fashion sneakers needed to be one of the 36 pieces in my wardrobe then I knew I needed to commit to wearing them. 

Now not only am I a sneaker girl, but I actually LOVE when I get to wear my Vans sneakers.  I LOVE them!  I have actually had a lot of compliments and had many people buy the exact same sneakers after seeing mine.  So I am fully on board now.  

Ways to wear women's fashion sneakers

I wear mine with basically everything.  If you are headed to a really fancy event then don't wear them, but I have worn mine with skirts and dresses before just in more casual settings.  I don't usually wear mine with my cropped pants because they just look funny with the style of cropped pants that I have, but that isn't the case of all cropped pants.

I like to go to Macy's because they usually have a huge selection to look at.  I don't usually go there only to look for shoes.  I go there to get a few things, but they have a great selection of shoes.  So if you are headed there anyways then this a great place to stop.
