Basics can be très chic, too!
What I wore to work yesterday...
- Leopard print tank - Forever 21
- Oversized Chiffon blouse - American Apparel
- Dark denim skinnies - H&M
- Sandals - H&M
- Red bag - Zara
Here's me looking like the ever-eager summer intern--hah! Excuse the band-aid on my foot, I have a mysterious cut with seriously no idea on earth how it got there. But anyway, these sandals are new! They were only $17.95CAD or something like that--sooooo cheap, and so very comfy! Words I would use to describe my personal style include comfort, simple, laid-back, creative and polished. I can't stand being in clothing that looks messy, and I certainly can't stand the feeling of being not so put-together. Not to worry though, I make up for this lack of messiness with my woodland-creature beast-like tangled mess of hair.
To the point, though I have a girly love for bows, lace and all flowers, I still tend to stick to a lot of basics...I have a lot of things that are the same style. All my bottoms are slim-fitting, and most of my tops are loose-fitting. To give you a better example of what I mean by this...I have this chiffon blouse in 5 colours--haha. Anyway, a lot of people think that basics are just things that everyone should have, but can't really be dressed up--like a good pair of jeans, or a plain white top. Your basics don't have to be boring! If you choose simple timeless basics that can go well with pretty much anything that is trending at the moment, I promise you elegance. You will look pretty and polished!
