50 closet classics: Time to go shopping

I came across this image on Pinterest the other day.  It was one of those, "with these XX number of pieces of clothes you can have an infinite number of outfits."

Of course that led me to whine, "but I don't have any of those pieces!" Well, actually I have quite a few similar pieces, which means I should really cut down on the dramatic, "I have nothing to wear" moments I seem to have every day. 

This outburst led to more time spent on Pinterest and led me to finding an image from Matchbook Magazine titled, "50 classics for your closet: the go-to basics every matchbook girl should own..."  Well I don't consider myself a Matchbook girl or a girl for that matter, but I was hooked by the pretty polka dot umbrella and the purple loafers. 

I checked off the things in my closet that I have and like for the grand total of 26 items.  Technically, I have a few more of the items unchecked, but I'm not really a big fan of the piece I have so I hope to get a more classic piece instead.  Although, I don't think I'll ever own a black bikini ... I just don't see that ever falling into my closet. 

I don't think the hubs is going to want to hear this, but it looks like I'm short on quite a few classic pieces. I guess that means it's time to go shopping :)

Oh who am I kidding? I'm on serious shopping lockdown after a few indulgences last month.  Sigh, it looks like I'm stuck on window shopping for my remaining items.

How about you? What classics do you still need to add to your closet?
