So while prepping for this big cross country move I have realized I have WAAAY to many clothes. While working with my friends from Top Shelf Organizers I ended up getting rid of like 5 or 6 trash bags of clothes. Clothes alone guys, that’s not even the shoes…which was like two bags. That sounds terrible, but amazing at the same time. I keep looking at my closet and seeing how empty it looks and how I’m not fighting against all the clothes to put more in. It’s really a freeing feeling.
But I feel like with any move this purging thing is inevitable, we all go through it and tell ourselves we’re never getting back to that point. Ha, which never happens, but really I am going to try this time! Anyway to this point of being able to keep your closet minimal I want to share with you a really cool store, Ruti, that has so many pieces that are versatile and can be worn so many different ways.
So here’s the thing on Ruti, she wanted to design clothes that were comfortable and practical. Which as a Mom is something that I’m always thinking about when I’m shopping. I recently popped into their store in Berkley and did a try-on haul with my friend Ana. We both found this amazing sweater and new we had to have it. It works in so many different ways. Here’s is a look at my in-store try-on haul, plus two ways to style this sweater casually. Be sure to head on over to Ana’s YouTube channel after to see what she tried on and her ways of styling this sweater in red
Now, how cool are all of those pieces!?! I’ll be honest, some of the pieces are pretty expensive, which you know I’m typically pretty budget friendly. But with the versatility of them you will wear them a ton and it is so worth it. Plus they are made so well that you’ll be able to wear them for years.
Now, I know you’re probably thinking, Kallie you just told be to get rid of a bunch of stuff. True, but doing that first helps you realize what basic functional items you’re missing, or how you could replace three of those with one classic staple. One of the most basic and classic items is a cardigan. We all love them and we all need them. So I found the perfect one that meets your function of a cardigan, but also a light weight jacket.
I love finding a store that has clothes that are cool, flattering and practical.
