{recap} French Wardrobe Challenge - January

I'm still on vacation in Florida, but here's my wardrobe update for the month!

I went a little crazy this month with 5 new items. One was my DKNY sweater from Net-a-Porter's End of Season sale (see it in a post here). Then I got a gorgeous suede jacket from TJ Maxx. Finally, Piperlime had 60% off all their sale items so I took the opportunity to buy a few tank tops. Only worn one so far.


  1. Just five seven standout pieces per season.
  2. Quality over quantity.
  3. Basics don’t count.
  4. Accessories don’t count, unless you’re spending a lot more than usual.
  5. Socks and underwear don’t count.
  6. Shoes do count.
