French Twist

As I’m packing for another trip I realize that I have a few key pieces in my wardrobe that are really my ‘workhorse’ items – those things that I wear again and again in a million different ways – these jeans and chambray shirt are two of my most worn and loved pieces.  They are each items that I consider ‘investment’ pieces, ones that I put a lot of thought into and considered how they would work with what I have and how much I would wear them.  Do you have pieces like that in your wardrobe? I’d love to hear about your ‘workhorse’ items!
