Houndstooth

Some items in my wardrobe have lasted throughout the years despite changing trends.  This houndstooth skirt from Ann Taylor has really stood the test of time.  I purchased it back in 2007 and it's still going strong.  It's made from wool and is fully lined so it is quite warm in the colder months.  Paired with classic charcoal and red, this look will also stand the test of time.

I am happy to invest in pieces I know I'll wear a long time.  Winter coats, great boots, nice dresses and well made skirts tend to be where I splurge.  Costume jewelry, tops, sundresses, sandals and anything super trendy (I'm thinking of my leopard print jumpsuit!) are always going to be affordable or even thrifted.  I just can't justify dropping a ton of cash on something that I won't be able to wear in 2016.
