Quite a while ago I did a post on my 5 Closet Workhorses. One of them was my camel cardigan. It's been worn quite a bit since then. I love the length and relaxed fit. Originally it was an Old Navy clearance find. I didn't even like it that much, but thought it could be useful. Who knew how useful it would be! Last month I was going through my closet and noticed it. Knowing now what a great piece this is, I wanted to find a replacement for it in better quality. Now I have one that fits me better and is all wool. 
It's important to identify those pieces that you turn to time and time again. That way, even if you can't afford to have a whole wardrobe of high quality clothing, your closet workhorses can at least be of good quality. Those closet workhorses are going to get lots of wear and survive a lot of washing so they need to be made well!

  5. I am a huge fan of pink with camel - love the combo. This outfit is stunning and better off that it is all through ThredUp. How lucky! I own a similar well-made camel cardigan by Lord & Taylor. Hope I still have it somewhere. One of your most polished work looks. Please remember to link with me on Monday for the pink-themed linkup. Thanks and have a great weekend!

  7. Love the camel cardigan! I agree, if you have a piece you are wearing a lot of lower quality that is a good piece to target when getting more expensive pieces, you know you'll use it!

  11. I love this skirt! I have one that 's a similar colour, and I was worried that I wouldn't get enough wear out of it. WRONG! It's way more versatile than I initially thought!

  12. It makes sense to replace pieces we use a lot with better ones! This outfit is so pretty, pink is one of my favorite colors yet I don't wear it often.

  27. Oh, your floral tank is simply stunning! I am not really a floral person, but this one really caught my attention. I really like the different color combination you have used here - I need to try camel and pink sometime. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday, Laura!
