Closet Basics

May 23, 2017

Similar top here & here
Bag, Louis Vuitton
Similar hat

You know those productive days where everything goes according to plan? Yeah, today was one of those. It was great. I started the day with a workout to set the tone for my week, got some blog work and house cleaning done, and even had time to take my lazy pups for a walk :) Here's to hoping the rest of the week goes just as well!

So I have preached about the importance of basics/essentials for your wardrobe before and this outfit is an example of why. An easy sleeveless top, ripped denim, accessorized with a hat & retro sunnies. You could take this same outfit and pair it with pumps and a top knot for a chic date night look. Platform espadrilles are another need for your closet- they make your legs look 38373 ft long and are so flattering! I wear these a ton (as seen here & here) and never get over how much better I look in them haha.
