Back to Basics

Tee: Forever 21 (similar)
Jeans: American Eagle (similar here)
Heels: Target (similar)
Bag: Forever 21 (similar)

We all have those moments when we look into our closets and think, "I have nothing to wear." For most of us, this is clearly not the case. I find that when I put myself into this situation, I am often over-thinking my outfits and attempting to create the most elaborate looks possible. That usually plummets into a series of unnecessary difficulties -- forgetting to pack lunch, missing the bus. Getting dressed really shouldn't be so tedious by any means.

That is what basics are for. The combination of a t-shirt and jeans may not sound all that exciting, but it always works. It can be worn for almost any occasion, from a casual day at school to a night out in the city. Today I've dressed up my basics by incorporating subtle statements. While it is still just a t-shirt and jeans, the combination of distressing, faux suede, and a bold print adds a personal touch to the look. Basic doesn't have to mean boring.
