A basic white blouse and  jeans are staple items for any wardrobe.   This silk blouse is by Equipment and definitely an investment piece.  It’s comfortable and will last a couple years or more if laundered properly.  The blouse is  available in eight colors including black and various prints so you have options!

Finding the perfect jeans can be a challenge but once found, you’ll wear them time and time again.  I wear lots of denim and dress them up or down depending on the day.  These are AG Denim and are super comfortable without feeling baggy.  Also a wardrobe staple are skinny’s!  Wear with any style boot or top for a chic, polished look.   My favorite skinny jeans are from Rag and Bone.  I’ve had them for two years and they’ve yet to look worn or feel stretched out.   They hold up well after washing and have just enough stretch for comfort and style. By the way ~ if you want to preserve your denim, wash gently, inside out and don’t dry them all the way;)    Boyfriend jeans are super cute with a big knit sweater, and kitten heels or booties.   Current Elliot are my favorite for a cuffed, boyfriend style.  Last .. the high waist, button up jean.  I found a pair  on sale over at A&F (similar).  You can check this blog post to see how I styled mine!

These fringe heels have been my favorite recently (I have to wear opened toed shoes while I can!) and comfortable considering there is a heel.

A leopard clutch is another wardrobe staple and this one is my favorite.  It’s priced well and the fold over style allows for plenty of room for my essentials.   Clare V. has lots of options too!
