simple stuff

As I am trying to define my style, I find myself gravitating toward a more simplistic dress code. I still love to have fun with fashion and having the base (essentials) of my wardrobe allows me to do that while still looking chic and pulled together.

The "base" of this look would be the jeans, white tank top, and black tote. While the "fun" would be the gold necklaces, heels, and panama hat.

If you have great essentials in your closet, you can be assured that it is that mush easier to get dressed in the morning. And that much more fun!

I encourage you this week to create a look with your essentials, and then make it your own with accessories, jackets, scarves, whatever you heart desires.

Top - MNG by Mango via JCPenney ($17) | Jeans - LOFT ($32) | Heels - BCBGeneration
Necklaces - DIY & TJMaxx ($25) | Tote - H&M ($25) | Hat - Old Navy ($15)

Happy Hump Day!
