Do you guys remember a few months back when Heath said she wanted to start implementing the French Five in her closet? Basically the idea is that you purchase only 5 items each season (only two seasons - warm & cool) and you keep up with your basics throughout the year. I'm wanting to do some version of this French Five myself. I think it's the perfect way to limit your shopping, but encourages you to pick a few fresh things each season. I think it's so funny looking at our picks. My picks are a little more girly, pastel and safe, and Heath's are black and camel (her favorites) and of course lots of handbags (her other favorite).
a silk pleated maxi dress, super cute sandals, a cute clutch or handbag, and a fresh embroidered top from Mango.
a fresh pair of sneakers, an everyday denim shirt, a flirty floral skirt, a tunic and neutral gladiator sandals.
So, what do you guy think about it? What would your picks by? I'm really curious. Do you think five new items for spring/summer and five new items for fall/winter is a lot? Do you buy way more than five per season? I'd really love to hear because I'm curious what the norm is. I don't think I shop a lot but when you really sit down to pick out your five for the season, it's really tough. I realized it's hard to just pick 5, especially when you count shoes and handbags. And jewelry, well that's a whole other thing. Do you have any other tips or rules of thumb you consider for shopping?
