I don't know about you guys but as I get older I'm noticing a shift in my style. When it comes to trends I love incorporating small accent pieces into my wardrobe but my day-to-day 'uniform' is pretty consistent.
On any given day you'll find me running errands, grabbing lunch or coffee with a friend, meeting with clients or sourcing design materials. As I work from home I like to plan my days when I'm out of the house to be pretty back to back which means I can find myself going from an under-construction work site to a meeting with a client all in one day so my wardrobe needs to be pretty accommodating to the wide range of activities I do.
Usually a pair of jeans (blue or black) and casual top are the building blocks to whatever I wear, topped off with a cute blazer and always, a stylish pair of shoes. I've learned that I can be pretty rough on some of my wardrobe and there are pieces I'm willing to replace more frequently and then others where it's worth the investment in quality pieces, such as footwear. After all, when you're on your feet all day you need to be a) comfortable but also for me - I definitely want to be stylish!
I came across Donald Pliner late last year and fell immediately in love with the site. Classic pieces that are stylish, thoughtfully designed and high quality. I love pieces that are classic with a twist, like the Matisse Collection Keriesp booties. We all know black booties are a wardrobe staple but with a suede covered beaded heel, these boots are on another level. The designer in me loves the little twist and they've quickly become my favourite bootie to add a bit of fun to my day to day look. Next up on my wish list - these Lilian leather loafers with the best fur accent!! (Adorable!)
The Keriesp booties are definitely my favourite shoe right now and as I get older and continue to refine my wardrobe and become a little more minimalist in my approach to style, I realize the importance of investing in more quality pieces such as these. Have you guys noticed a shift in your style as you get older? What are your wardrobe items that you look to invest in as your style evolves?
