I feel pretty indifferent about turning 30. I wish I was one of those people who believes that your 30s are your new 20s, but as the new decade approaches, what I feel most of all is nostalgia. So in order to raise my spirits and get me feeling how I should about finally turning 30, I decided to make my last year in my 20s extra special, at least sartorially speaking. Below, you will see a list of clothing items I've decided need to be a part of my life this year. Will I actually buy all 29 items? Definitely not. But the overall list, which is a mix of basics and fun thrills, will give you a glimpse into how I plan on dressing this year and beyond.
With the "big-girl" bags and trendy tops in this roundup, you'll quickly realize that I don't plan on changing my style much as I age. Instead, I plan to really lean into the pieces that make me feel most like myself. Style is tied to identity, not age, so take this list as more of a celebration of me entering into this next chapter because if there's one thing in this world that I get way too excited over, it's clothes.
