I seem to be wearing a lot of the same pieces over and over and finally had the genius idea to put all my favorites together.  I have really been into re-mixing the things I have lately, in an effort to A.) fall in love with my closet again, and B.) actually wear everything I have and stop buying more (hasn't really worked that well so far, but I'm still optimistic).  In doing this, I have found that my favorite pieces tend to be the most versatile things I own and that by wearing them different ways, I don't get bored of them so easily.  Each of these pieces have proven to be worth their weight in outfit gold, as I have been able to get quite a bit of mileage out of them by dressing them up, dressing them down and dressing them right in between.  What type of pieces tend to be your favorites?
