Welcome back! I took an unexpected week off from posting last week. Ya know, life happens (sigh) but it goes on so, I am back! Yay!
I am a huge fan of staple pieces!
Seriously, hats, jackets, t-shirts, comfortable denim and neutral color shoes. Having these pieces will take you a long way giving you unlimited wearable options. I know what you're thinking, you look ridiculous in hats, but I promise there is a hat style and size that fits your head. Trust me. Coming from a girl with a big head and even bigger hair. I purchased this hat and jacket at Forever 21 last year and they have held up well. The ruffle top was on sale at Lane Bryant earlier in the summer and the denim jeans were a sale find at a Macy's One Day Sale (Ha! Yes, they still have those). I live for a sale in case you couldn't tell!
Staple pieces also transition well throughout seasons. For example, a tee shirt can be worn over a turtleneck for a layered look in the winter months and a hat can instantly elevate the most basic airport attire when traveling.
In the photos I am wearing a white tee with ruffles. I love this top! It softens the look of this otherwise more edgy outfit. It transitions from work to play which I go for when choosing transition items to layer.
