If I HAD to pick a favorite basic piece in my wardrobe, I think it would be my white Ralph Lauren oxford. Oxfords just instantly make you look like you have it all together, ya know? Even when you wear them super casual like I did here! I like to think of it as my preppy-girl white tee. Everybody knows an oxford + pencil skirt means “Let’s get down to business!” – but they can just as easily be worn with shorts, sneakers (if you haven’t already jumped on the New Balance train, you should) and a baseball cap to give you an effortlessly casual, classy look.
Another great basic clothing piece – boyfriend-fit jean shorts. I’m just gonna say it. There comes a point in your life when the days of daisy dukes should be behind you. Sorry! But does that mean you have to eliminate jean shorts all together? Of course not! Longer lengths are your friend. I am realizing this more & more as I get closer to my mid-20s. No, you do not look like a grandmaw. No, they do not have to be bermuda shorts. American Eagle has great lengths to make you look a little more conservative but still super cute and on-trend. I am wearing these (go up 1 size for the perfect slightly slouchy fit) but I also really like this pair for those days when you aren’t feeling the distressed look.
Thanks for stopping by, & I hope you have a relaxing fun-filled weekend!
