I prefer (and recommend) collecting a wardrobe instead of purchasing it one all at once. With the latter, you tend to make purchases that are unnecessary and you fill your closet with garments that are not particularly wow.

Over the weekend I went shopping at the Need Supply and I left with two wardrobe builders: the Genevieve Big Neck Scarf (shown with this striped sweater) and the Jones Blouse.

The big chunk knit snood is casual but stunning and looks like it would come with a big price tag (but, it did not).

The Jones blouse reminds me of a Rag & Bone dress (seen here and below) that a friend gave me. I will still be wearing my new top with my D.I.Y. harness and Panama hat, but with my grey skinny jeans or black leather pants on bottom. (Some of you did suggest I try a pair of pants with the dress as well. Thank you, relatives, I heeded the advise.)
