Quarantine Wardrobe: My Favorite Simple Pieces

While we may not officially be under “lockdown,” I have basically still been quarantining myself. Being busy with classes has helped keep the stir-craziness at bay for the most part. Grocery outings, picking up food, appointments and a couple of Target runs have been the extent of my outings. To make these not-so-exciting outings feel a little more like occasions, I’ve been dressing myself up whenever I go out. I’ve also spent the occasional day-in dressed up, just to keep things interesting! Trying to avoid being my pajamas every day has led me to develop a mini “quarantine” wardrobe of simple and classic pieces.

Just imagine all of these looks with a mask!

Quarantine Wardrobe - Denim and Stripes

Summer in Georgia is pretty much unbearable, so shorts are a must. These denim shorts from Abercrombie are the only denim shorts I wear. They’re very comfortable and super high-waisted – a must!

Besides my Birkenstocks, these leopard-print ladies from J.Crew have been my go-to shoes all summer. Leopard truly is a neutral! I’ve been wearing them with most of my outfits to add some fun.

Quarantine Wardrobe - Denim and Stripes

I am a huge fan of button-up tops, or really anything with buttons. A strange affinity to have, but alas. For the sticky Georgia summers we endure, this billowy, and incredibly light and soft, short-sleeved button up has been a favorite. I often wear it over a swimsuit as a cover up, but love tucking it into shorts or jeans when going out as well.

They don’t call an LBD a classic for nothing! I’ve had this dress in my wardrobe for years, a Goodwill original, and never get tired of it. With leopard-print shoes, or some metallic sandals and some fun earrings, it’s both comfortable and elegant, without being stuffy.

Quarantine Wardrobe - Classic Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits and dresses are the easiest way to create an outfit. They’re basically already an outfit on their own! I’ve been slipping this jumpsuit on a lot when going out or wanting to dress up around the house. Easy and comfortable, without being hot.

Quarantine Wardrobe - Bike Short Casual

The very last outfit of this wardrobe features a trend that I never thought I would get into – bike shorts! While this isn’t much of a “look,” it is what I’ve been wearing a lot. The henley tank-top I’m wearing is from Target. They’re incredibly soft and comfortable – I have them in 3 different colors. As someone with a very short torso and long legs, this is one of the only tank-tops I can find that doesn’t go down over my butt! At only $8, they’re a great find for lounging at home, or casual outings.
