Back to Basics

Top & Bandeau-American Apparel, Jeans-Gap, Handbag- Tressje, Shoes-Steve Madden, Rings- Purple Label & YSL c/o Designer Apparel, Bangle-Vintage, Necklaces-House of Harlow 1960 & Blue Bride; , Sunglasses-Karen Walker 

With this being the coolest summer we have had in a long time I have been yearning for a fall wardrobe sooner than usual. I love basics and dressing more relaxed and comfortable. You don't have to sacrifice style when wearing basics. I love wearing bandeaus and this tank from American Apparel is perfect to show it off. I am really particular about how my tanks fall. They have to have length for styling and tucking into jeans. This is definitely my favorite outfit for shopping and running errands (and you can bet I have my new Gap flats in my giant bag). If only I has those Ance pistol boots with this outfit!

Thank you to Cat for my beautiful necklace! Check out her Esty store Bride Blue!

We have been having the hottest summer ever so I am def look forward to the cooler weather of fall. I love that necklace!

Christina said...

Sometimes it's really nice to see a chic, casual outfit. Many times when I go for casual, I look well, a little too casual for my taste. It's nice to throw in some interesting details like jewelry and a bandeau.

Pretty Pleased said...

I'm loving the way you've adorned your basics! That camel bag and your stunning accessories get all the glory:)

This is such a great example of a brilliant outfit put together with neutral classic colors and basic pieces. I have been debating picking up a bandeau and I think this post has me sold!
But I what I really want to know is; where can I get that double-finger ring???
Love, P

Couldn't agree more with you on the tank requirements. I hate short tanks and I like them loose an airy. I have actually refrained from buying ones that are too low on the sides--some people say side boob is in, but NOT me! Never thought to buy a bandeau--must try.

Phuong said...

you look lovely in this basic outfit

jen lainy said...

This is a great look for you. I also love your last shot with you looking over your shoulder. Adorable!!

filthy g said...
