Simple Women's Striped Shirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Simple Women's Striped Shirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
I love stripes.  Stripes on everything for me!  They are so simple to pair with anything and everything.  The key is to find a simple women's striped shirt.

I like to get a simple one because I can wear them with skirts and also jeans.  However, having a more classy striped shirt is fun too.  I also like to get short sleeved, because once again I like to wear them in the Summer/Spring, but then layer it in the Winter/Fall as well.

Women's Button Down Shirts (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Women's Button Down Shirts (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
Women's button down shirts can be casual, but they can certainly be more dressy as well.  That is what I like about them.  Since I have two in my wardrobe I usually try to get one of each style.  A more fancy one that might require a bit more care and then one that is more casual.

I wear my button up shirts with anything and everything.  I can wear either of them with my skirts.  I have one that is kind of denim material so I try not to wear them with my cuffed jeans because I want more variation.  So I go to my colored shorts or my black pants for that shirt.  Just like my other shirts I try to find short sleeved shirts so I can layer in the Fall and Winter, but still wear them in the Summer and Spring.

Pleated or Flouncy Skirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

Pleated or Flouncy Skirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
I've said it so many times, but I love skirts.  This is one category that I always feel like changing up.  I love skirts and dresses and the way I feel when I wear them and the way they look.  

So once again a pleated or flouncy skirt was not hard for me to add to my wardrobe.  Once again the hardest part was figuring which ONE I would choose.  I tend to change these out about every year, just to give myself something new.

Ways to wear a pleated or flouncy skirt
Pleated or Flouncy Skirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
This really depends on the skirt.  Mine is a little more dressy.  I still wear graphic tees with it, but it looks way better if I can tuck in my shirt.  So that is one thing I always do.  Then since it is a little more dressy I don't ever wear my sneakers with it, but really any other pair of shoes in my closet I wear with it.

How to Wear a Pencil Skirt (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

I knew I needed a pencil skirt in my wardrobe.  Honestly, in the Summer I LOVE to wear my pencil skirt.  I like wearing skirts more than shorts.  So the hardest part is only having one! 

Ways to wear a pencil skirt
How to wear a pencil skirt?  Really how to NOT wear a pencil skirt is a better question.  Like I said I wear skirts in the Summer ALL THE TIME.  If you get a casual enough pencil skirt then you can  even wear it to a baseball game.  Just make sure it is neutral enough and also that it is comfy enough.  

I wear my pencil skirt with all the shirts in my wardrobe.  I wear it with all the shoes in my wardrobe as well.  The key is getting one that is versatile enough.

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.

Ways to wear floral or patterned dresses
Floral or Patterned Dresses (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)
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!

Ways to wear a simple high heels shoes
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)
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
Women's Cardigan Outfit Ideas (Minimalist Wardrobe List: A 36 Piece Wardrobe)

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.
