Some updated basics i am currently craving right now.

1.  This plaid scarf is everywhere on the fashion blogging scene. Even though I don't own it, (it's currently sold out :( ) I still have already planned outfits in my head with it.
2. Every girl needs a basic pair of black pumps. They elongate legs, and will pair well with almost any look.
3. Distressed denim has been on my list for awhile, but I cant seem to find the right pair. I don't want too much distressing, just the right amount. Like these ones!
4. I already own a pair of leopard flats, but they are to the point of looking worn down. I love the gold toe on these. And yes, leopard is the new black :)
5. As I have posted about before, this black structured purse is still amaze. I love the gold detailing. A black purse is definitely a basic in any wardrobe and worth investing in.
6 & 7 & 8. Midi rings. I am obsessed with. They add a little bit of edge to any look.
9. This dainty gold cross necklace is so perfect. It would be a piece I would wear daily.
10. These cage heels may be a bit trendy to call a basic but the black color makes them just that. And for the price, definitely! As with the plaid scarf I already have many outfits planned in my head with these.

I hope this inspires you to update the basics in your closet!
