Thoughts for Thursday | What I Need in My Closet

Happy Thursday! I'm linking up with Annie and Natalie today for "Thoughts for Thursday." This week? All about what I need in my closet! 

I say "need" in a very loose term: I have a ton of stuff in my closet, but that's just it: stuff. I don't have all of those key pieces everyone "needs." I will go in my closet in the morning and just stare, reminding myself I just need to clean out that dang closet. I will chalk it up to being pregnant last year and having a bunch of transitional pieces...or maybe I don't have an excuse at all! Ha! My biggest problem is that I have work clothes and lounge-around-the-house {read: yoga pants} clothes. I have nothing in between! 

That said, here are the things that I have a running list on my phone in the Notes Section {yes, I have that}. 

Brightly-colored skirts 

I don't know about y'all, but I have a plethora of black and navy skirts in every shape and size. I need some bright ones that I can throw on with - like below - a black or white top and cute accessories and it's a cute, put-together outfit! 

A pair of leopard print heels {that I like}

I have had my current pair of leopard print heels for what seems like forever, so I'm in the market for some new ones. Preferably these, thankyouverymuch! 

Colored skinny pants {not jeans}

I have a couple pairs of colored pants, but they're more on the slack-ish side. Basically, they're just not my favorite. I need a few pairs of cute colored skinny pants. I have a couple pairs of black and white ones {and jeans, of course} but not any colored ones I just love that I can wear to work. Anyone have a pair they love? 

A new fur vest 

This one isn't necessary since I already have one, but the one I have has a little sweater-like trim on it. I love the one below! 

A good white dress {that I can wear to work}

I have a really cute white sundress that I love wearing on the weekends in the summer, but I need one like the one below that I can wear to work in the summers that is cute, yet still professional. 

More infinity scarves 

I have a ton of scarves, but I need more printed scarves that I can mix and match with outfits like below. I never would have thought to put that scarf with that shirt, but I think it's adorable! 

However, all of that to say, Pinterest has provided me with quite the outfit inspiration as of late! Here are some of my recent favorites that I've copied: 

I hope y'all have a wonderful day! Almost the weekend! 


  1. Oh my goodness, I love all your fashion picks. Bright skirts and all the leopard print are my favorites, though. We have very similar taste, lady! I hope you can find everything you want!

  2. Stopping by from the link-up. I desperately want to revamp my wardrobe. If I could find a money tree it would be a lot easier lol. :)

  3. Loving all your new closet "needs." Leopard heels are a must and I've been crazy about fur vests this fall too! They have some great looking ones out there at a great price right now!

  4. Love these!! And I need a fur vest!!

  5. I love your style and basically everything you picked! :) Hope you get some of it! Stopping by from the link up :)
