How many times have you woken up, walked into (or just stared straight at in my case) your closet and thoughtâ€¦ I have absolutely nothing to wear. Hand raised x 1000! If writers block is real and artists need muses, I think we all need something for those days when our creative juices need a little jumpstart.
Those are the days when I go back to the basics. When all else fails, theyâ€™re always there for you to rely on when an exciting combination or creative pairing just isnâ€™t going to happen.
Every woman has her own version of wardrobe staples, and for me theyâ€™ve changed a little bit over the years, but mine typically start with a good pair of jeans. I live in jeans a lot of the year â€“ theyâ€™re so easy and still polished if you find the right pair. One of my favorites are the Madewell skinny skinny because theyâ€™re a perfect dark indigo color and fit snugly.
This past Fall, I finally invested in a white blouse that I knew I would want to wear with everything. This Equipment blouse is heavily rotated through my outfits and especially on days when Iâ€™m feeling bit more classic. Paired with a pair of nude heels like these Vince dâ€™orsay pumps, it makes me feel polished but still surprisingly comfortable.
Around these three items, you can pretty much create any spin on classic that you want! I put on a statement necklace and pulled out a pretty little purple suede clutch for a little more color and then grabbed this trusty neutral coat that has been a winter favorite.
