My Essential list did not change much this year but some of the individual items got upgraded. Last year, I focused on adding trendier jeans, replacement shoes, and completed my layering tee capsule. My complete list is on Angie's blog and the finds shown below are either replacements or additions that have been added most recently. The white Nikes are several years old but I've been wearing them lately because I think they work well with the ugly sneaker trend. The higher waist jeans are much more comfortable for me than the lower waist jeans, so I am thrilled there are lots of options now. Adding the workhorse tees have made my wardrobe more of a capsule wardrobe with mix and match options. Last year's focus on Essentials really helped me understand how important they are.
