Happy Friday y’all! Maybe it’s because I was traveling Monday but I feel like this week FLEW by and I don’t feel 100% ready yet for Friday to already be here haha. But, nevertheless, always excited for the weekend!
Today I want to share with y’all a concept I’ve been trying to adapt when building my fall wardrobe, and that is: the importance of having great basics that you can wear lots of different ways.
When I first saw this striped vest I thought it was the cutest thing. I loved the colors and the fact that it somehow looks like a scarf, a vest, and a cape all at the same time. I love that this striped vest can be a statement piece, yet it’s super easy to mix and match with SO many different things in your wardrobe! (And it keeps you warm at the same time!) Below you’ll see I paired this same striped vest with these jeans and a white tee!
Also, this black swing dress is SO versatile. It’s a great basic, stand alone dress but also the perfect dress for pairing with blanket scarves and OTK boots. It’s a dress you can wear with sneakers while traveling, or with suede heels for a going out look! AND under $50!
There’s always a time and a place to buy super trendy statement pieces, but it’s so important when you’re creating your fall wardrobe to add pieces to it that you can get TONS of use out of! This striped vest, this black swing dress, and these suede booties are three of those things for me! I wear them all the time and in so many different ways!
Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! We’re heading down to Waco tomorrow for the football game…sic ’em!
