Spicing Up the Basics
Tuesday, March 11, 2014 27 Comments Images


This is a simple outfit today but pieces that you can always turn to. You may have learned this from me already and if not you will continue to but I always think you need stripes in your closet.  They are a must and they are hard to find so snag them when you find winners! I also think you need a good pair of wax pants or leggings, a black hat, and fun black heels.  There is a difference between basics and a little twist on basics which is what I tried to do in today's post. These aren't just plain black pumps but they are a fun lace up pumps that adds a little spice to the outfit.  Along with these pants, they aren't just any black jeans they are waxed and have zippers and just a little more fun.  So pretty much to keep this post simple.....stick to basics and spice them up to keep things more exciting!

  1. Love! One of my favorite outfits - simple and a little funky. I just ordered two striped light sweaters (on clearance, thank you spring!) thanks to your inspiration. Can't wait to style them as I learn to be better about this whole "put-together" thing. Fashion has never been a strong point of mine, ha!

  10. Couldn't agree more about basics with a twist! Basics are great but it's basics that an extra detail that really make them special.
