Basics


Fact: you can never go wrong with basics.
Basics get a bad rap sometimes, but basic doesn't have to equal boring - just throw on some fun accessories! Adding my DIY choker & leopard booties to this outfit gave it just the right amount of edge. I have to admit Victoria's Secret PINK makes a pretty perfect v-neck (super soft, slightly sheer, a little oversized). In all seriousness, I could live in these Levi cut-offs for the rest of my life - so comfortable and they go with everything! What are your go-to basics?

  14. I love this look! I've been buying a lot of basic tees like this lately. They're so comfortable and easier to dress up or down to fit to your mood. Love how you added the leopard booties to make this outfit stand out.
