Late last month I was thinking I didn't have many blouses or printed tops so I placed a large order to thredUP. I still have credits from them and found some great options. I had originally planned to return a couple of them, but after a week I still couldn't choose which to send back so I kept them all. It required me to really clean out my closet, but it was worth it. Now I have some go-to items for work or casual wear that are in a classic style and easily remixable. The windowpane blouse from SheIn fits right in with what I've been wanting and I feel like that section of my wardrobe feels more complete now.

I was able to find lace up flats that had been on my wish list at DSW with some reward dollars for quite a steal. They are surprisingly comfortable and I am so excited to wear them. My hope is that the blush color will be versatile. I debated a tan color, but was worried it would be too close to my skin tone. These are perfect. 

For next month I still have a colorful winter coat on my list. A bright blue would be fun, but haven't been finding the style I want (maybe this one or this one?). I am also on the hunt for a pair of skinny jeans with skinny ankles. I love my joga jeans, but they aren't as tapered as I would like. Any suggestions?

  1. You got so many great pieces! I'm on the hunt for a colorful winter coat too! Love the red one with the asymmetrical zipper you have your eye on!

  2. I love that burgundy jacket and how you wore it. It's so different, but will probably go with so much. And those lace up flats will go with so much. Great buys.

  6. Are those Anne Klein flats?? Because I have been eyeing up a pair of her lace-up flats from DSW and may take the plunge this month! You got so much for practically nothing--way to go!! I especially love that burgundy asymmetrical zip jacket!

  17. You got a lot of great stuff this month! I love the blush lace-up flats, and I think that color will be really versatile. My favorite skinny jeans right now (with a skinny ankle) are the Loft denim leggings. Although they're fairly stretchy, they're more like jeans than leggings to me, but they are fitted all the way down through the ankle. Perfect for tucking into boots!

  18. This is a great roundup of the new items in your closet. As far as your jeans go, I really like the Paige verdugo ankle skinny jeans. They are a little more of a cigarette cut

  20. I love everything you got from the top row! I haven't checked out ThredUp in a long time (I find that you really need to set some time aside to find something good) but maybe I should check it out again as you got some really great pieces.

  21. So many great items from ThredUp. I am a huge fan of bow blouses and love yours. My favorite things from last month are the pretty floral Deloom dress and both of your gorgeous coats. I also added a pretty windowpane blouse (purchased last weekend) and I have very similar laceup nude/tan flats to the ones you got.

    I am interested to see an updated closet report by the number post, from you =)
