Easy Basics

Basics really are the best, aren’t they? As much as I love embellishment and fun, frilly details, I also love easy, basic pieces. It’s outfits like these that don’t require much thought at all. With the tiny glimpse of spring that we had this week (which then quickly fleeted), I was all too excited to break out some things I hadn’t yet had a chance to wear.

These jeans for one, are fantastic. They have a great stretch to them in addition to the button fly and cropped hem. I can’t wait to wear them more! Then there’s these slides that blew up on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago. I don’t always like to jump on the bandwagon with those items that everyone seems to be wearing, but I couldn’t pass these up, especially for the price. And finally, I was dying to break out my denim jacket, if only for a day! I have tried my fair share of denim jackets, and this one wins by far. I actually have it in a darker wash as well because it’s that good. It’s cut slightly higher in the back which gives it the most flattering fit as opposed to being boxy. It also has some stretch to it which makes it all the more comfortable and not stiff like many other denim jackets I’ve tried. That being said, if you’re on the hunt for a jean jacket this year, this one is worth the investment and will become a go-to for years to come!
