I love the thought of having a basic look. It makes life so much easier. I’ve been cleaning out my closets which includes my wardrobe. I have found it so freeing to have less. I still have a long way to go and think I could do better but for now, I’ll enjoy where I’m at. Keeping it simple, one day at a time.
What I love about having a basic look is the fact you can take you to many situations. A basic white tee and a black blazer can be worn for work, meetings, dinner out, every day errands. Just throw on your favorite accessories and go. I don’t have to think about it. Just put it on and go.
Lately, I have been wearing a lot of black and white. Oh my word – it is so easy. I think the hardest part is letting go of color. I’m not sure where I am on this one, but I’m still tossing it around in my brain. It looks so clean and classy. I’m not sure where I will go with this but I’ll keep you updated once I know.
A great basic look I enjoy and one that will take me anywhere is a simple t-shirt with a cardigan or a jacket. Whether I’m wearing jeans, skirt, trousers, shorts. It will work for all situations. Here is the formula I have been using to help me get that basic look.
- Top – whatever top you want. It does not have to be a t-shirt.
- Bottoms – skirt, jeans, shorts, trousers. Your choice.
- Your complete – jacket, cardigan, vest.
This is so simple. When I keep this in mind, it really motivates me to look my best because of the simplicity of the formula. Now…the statement earrings. Some days, girls, we don’t like to wear necklaces. There are times I’m just not in the mood, however, I can wear a great pair of statement earrings which will have the same effect as a statement necklace.
What a great daily outfit. Simple, stylish, put together, classy. Rolled up into ONE great formula.
If you’re going to do it, do it well.
