better basics.

{Sweater: Similar | Top: c/o eShakti | Cords: Similar | Shoes: Target}





I have a fault (well more than just one but I'm only addressing the one here). When I go shopping I want to buy fun pieces that add a little something to my wardrobe. I mean we all have to live on a budget so I want to use my money to purchase things that I know I won't be able to get a few months down the line or that other stores won't be carrying. I want the standout pieces. But that means I have very few basics. I don't have a lot of white, black or grey staples.

It's hard for me to put money toward those things, but this top makes me want to. If you have a great basic you can build a ton of original outfits, especially as the weather cools and you add more layers.

Are you guys like me? Do you tend to gravitate toward standout pieces and shy away from the basics? Or do you already know what I've just learned: that a great basic can be the perfect base for any outfit?

Here's to spending more on simple but beautiful basics.

Oh and happy halloween! Check out the post below of my lil one's costume! So fun!

  3. LOVE this outfit! Those shoes are perfect for fall!! I definitely have an issue with basics, but the total opposite of you: I have, like, 6 plain white tee shirts. It's kind of ridiculous, haha.

    Happy Halloween! :)

    1. You get them Shanna! I think we both share the same love for the same shoes. Case in point: polka dot loafers, corduroy leopard flats, chevron flats and these oxford wedges!
