Staple Pieces







Sleeveless Trench: Glamorous | Tank: Mossimo | Jeans: BlankNYC | Heels: Steve Madden | Clutch (similar style): Phase 3 | Bracelet: Topshop

The other day someone asked me how I would describe my style and I honestly had no idea what to tell them. I mean, I am definitely more on the conservative side but that could mean a million things, and since I have started fashion blogging I have had to think outside of what used to be my fashion box. I think as a normal consumer (not as a fashion blogger) it is extremely important to have staple pieces. Take this set of photos for example... The tank I am wearing here is new but I bought it in three colors because it is only $15 and I know that if I buy a new sweater or a statement pair of pants and pair them with this tank and a few accessories, I now have myself a seemingly brand new outfit. Along those same lines, the jeans I am wearing are under $100 and they can be dressed up, like in the pictures above, or dressed down (see this post). These are two examples of pieces that are so important and can be used throughout the year. I think the best answer I could give anyone about defining my style is classic, conservative and versatile with a side of sass. So vague, I know, but that's the beauty of it. Personal style is whatever you want it to be. 

I do a lot of my shopping online in my pajamas and call it lazy, but it's much easier than sifting through departments and hoping they have your size. This trench, however, is one I picked up in store. I saw it on the hanger and had to have it. The quality of the material and the structure are incredible. I wore it tied back which is super flattering in that it hangs just in front of my stomach (not my favorite feature), while still cinching in on the sides. It can also be worn tied in the front and with a long sleeved shirt for colder weather. I talked a little about this tank above, but seriously, buy it and buy it in every color that will benefit you. It is a lightweight crepe material that can be worn tucked or untucked and it is racerback which is super flattering. You will be seeing this one and it's counterparts through the spring and summer. I have it paired with my current favorite skinny jeans and ankle strap heels to give this outfit some extra sass.

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
