I take one step at a time, one day at a time. I enjoying sharing my writings with others, as I hope to use my work to touch the lives of others.


We can all recall times when we wanted to hit the road with friends or just get out of the house for some quiet outdoor time, but can’t seem to find anything to wear, even though our closet is overflowing with clothes. This may cause frustration at times. It may feel like every piece of clothing we have has outlived its purpose and is just occupying space. Our closet seems to have lost its spark and the excitement of getting dressed up has gone. The eagerness to take the perfect selfie had flown through the window.

Here are a few items that every closet should have to help you to create a whole new look. These items are great for wearing with the clothes you already have, as it gives them a look and a feel that is shiny and new. You can even recreate an entire outfit by incorporating one or more of these key elements. This will make you feel good and look good while sticking to a budget! The spark you had when you first purchased your clothes will be rekindled!

Key Item #1: Ripped Jeans

Jeans are pieces of clothing that everyone has and everyone loves! They are one of the most comfortable and extremely versatile clothing anyone can own. They can be worn almost anywhere and fits almost any type of mood. Jeans can be used to make a unique fashion statement, even if the jeans itself isn’t. There is just something very appealing in seeing the ruffles and frayed areas on jeans. Not only that, but jeans are one piece of clothing that everyone can rock! Whether you are slim, curvy or plus size. We can all look great and feel great. While being aware of the occasion, one can easily create an outfit that looks and feels great. The rips themselves are stylish and attention-grabbing, so finding a top to compliment is the easiest thing ever. A plain top can easily fit well with one, or if you want to pop, a bright or multicolored top with or without patterns can easily make you look flawless. Finding a pair of shoe to wear is also no problem as sneakers, sandals, slippers, heels all go well with the jeans. It is all up to you and the occasion that you are dressing for. There is no way one cannot look good in ripped jeans, whether it is new or old.

Key Item #2: Cardigan

Having a cardigan is absolutely the best thing a woman can do for herself. A cardigan is one piece of clothing every woman has or should have in her closet. Even if you have never worn it, it is or should be in there somewhere. The great thing about cardigans is that they are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors. I don’t think there is a color that a cardigan is not made in. They also come in amazing styles with unique prints. They fit all body types, which is amazing, and can make any outfit pop! It is very hard to go wrong with a cardigan.

Key Item #3: Hat

Hats hats and more hats! Everywhere you turn there is someone in a hat! It has been said that hats are making a comeback, but if you asked me, they never left! If you don’t have a hat that you are truly in love with, or at least have one hanging somewhere in your closet or stuffed in a drawer, then you are truly missing out. Not having a hat puts you at such a disadvantage as it is a key item to have to save your outfit when you feel all hope is lost. Hats are fashionable and add a touch of class to the outfit. It is also great to provide shade during those sunny days that we love and hate at the same time. It is also effective against the wind, rain, cold temperatures, and a lifesaver for those not so great hair days.

Not to have a hat is such a loss. They can completely change your look for eeek….to sheek! They should honestly be called a girls’ best friend. A hat can completely change the frame of your face. It makes you more attractive and can give hints towards your personality. This makes it great for those first impressions or first dates where you want to give a hint of your personality. A good hat is also good for your confidence. It can make you slay from head to toe….literally.

A great tip for selecting a hat, especially if you don’t plan on getting more than one or two, is to select one that can be worn with multiple outfits. Colors such as grey, nude, black or white will do perfectly. But please don’t think I am saying that brightly colored hats are a no-no. Most definitely not, bright colors are magical and can give you that bold look that most people desire.
