Putting together this post at the end of the year is daunting, but I’m always happy I do it. Looking back at my outfits is a nice way to reflect and see exactly what I’m putting out there, making sure there’s versatility, and that I’m not boring you. This year I think I did a good job of wearing more than just ripped jeans and tee shirts everyday. I also worked hard at investing in wardrobe staples and continuing to build my neutral versatile closet. I’m really excited for 2016 as you’ll see a lot more posts dedicated to helping you build a classic, neutral wardrobe that’s not only timeless but ageless. I’ll show you how to buy for all seasons and how to adapt your closet to trends and holiday dressing. The best part, I’ll share where to splurge and where to save (more of the saving part though).

If there’s anything you would like to see in 2016, I’d love to hear from you in the comments or shoot me an email, crystalinmarie (@) gmail.com.

Again, thank you for stopping by each and everyday. Your support means everything to me and I can’t wait to provide more inspiration in the coming year.
