back to basics

back to basicspictures by Mattias Swenson

B/W. These past couple of days have been super hot here in NY and dressing up has been the last thing on my mind, so back to basics it is! I scored these silk whyred pants on a sample sale years ago and they are one of those perfect pieces I always whip out when I’m in a hurry or don’t have anything to wear. Actually all of the pieces in the look above are things I wear on a weekly basis which probably proves that I should listen to my mom and invest in more timeless basics. They are after all the foundation of your wardrobe!

  1. I can definitely agree with investing in timeless classics. It seems I’ve been wanting to wear my white tee with black skinnies every day!

  3. I love this outfit! Plus, your hair is so so amazing, please do a tutorial on it!

  4. Envious of your upper body! It’s nearly impossible for me to look so confident in a sheer white tee. My boyfriend may have to fall asleep next to the Hulk tonight, I’m green with jealousy!


  5. I’m a huge fan of black skinnies and a plain top, love the monochrome look I could definitely see myself in an outfit like this! x
