I thought it would be appropriate to share my first-ever outfit post and feature what I call my "Basics" outfit. This ensemble merely consists of each article I would throw in to top off an almost-complete outfit. These are the gap fillers, the items that can do no wrong. Similar to that of a cup of black coffee, an essential part of the day that you know will always give you that "brief pause, ahhhh..." moment.
If I am running late for work or an outing with a friend, I throw these pieces together! It's where comfy meets super cute, without saying "Oh, I just threw this on!" when in fact, you actually did.. ;)
I am a huge fan of high-waisted pants, and wear them whenever the opportunity presents itself. they are flattering to the curves and accent your waist well. Pair a black jean with a soft white tank (mine's from Urban) tucked in and you're golden.
I truly am obsessed with this jean jacket from Gap. It happens to be my husband's, and I do enjoy stealing his clothes... I love how oversized it fits, and how relaxed the denim is. I also enjoy how I can faintly make out the smell of his cologne :)
If there's a way to incorporate cheetah print, I WILL do it. These booties always make any neutral outfit pop. When going basic, it's always a good idea to add a pattern or texture piece to pull the look together. I got these from H&M a while ago, but you can also find a similar pair at JCrew.
The finishing touch to our basic outfit is a heathered grey felt hat. I LOVE hats, especially this one. I'm always on the lookout for a good brimmed hat, not too floppy and no too stiff. This one from H&M is perfect for the Fall season rolling in.
There you have it, ladies. The Basics. Share with me what your favorite staple items are by commenting below!
