all the basics

sweater - h&m (similar) | shirt - gap (similar) | pants - old navy | shoes - gift (similar) | bag - michael kors (similar) | sunnies - h&m (similar

My most favorite of things is an outfit compiled of simple basic items.   There is nothing particularly special about any of these pieces and they all seem to fit together nicely.  This basic striped sweater is my ultimate weekend go to, I love when I can style it for my workday because I know that I will be super cozy in it all day.  Yesterday was no exception; with temps in the teens I couldn't forego the layers.  
The zippers on these pants make them seem ultra casual. But, the glory of a business casual office that merely rules out denim is that they're not denim (YIPPEE! Dance party!), so they work nicely at work. 
This peachy button down is definitely a closet staple; I love it's warm summery hue and it is fitting enough to fit under a multitude of sweaters. 
And my bag, gosh I love you.  In such a versatile color I suggest every girl pick up a simple leather bag in a cognac color.  

What classic basic pieces are you dressing in these days? 


  1. Loving this look! Especially how you layered your stripe top over that pink blouse :)

  2. Cute look! I like how you gave it a preppy look with the popped collar. Love the pants!


  3. Lovin' your layering!
