All black & flats is the name of the game when i’m on set styling shoots or working with a client. 1. its professional 2. it allows the subject/talent to pop & be the focus! I generally like to add pops of print and color such as this Elizabeth & James silk blouse I layered underneath my blazer, and of course my leopard print loafers! I also carry this little crossbody purse to keep all my styling necessities such as safety pins, needle&thread, clips, etc
This is my working uniform…what is yours?

Sometimes we all get so caught up in something “new” to wear that we forget about our basics. I had an A-ha moment this morning as I sat dauntingly in front of my closet with thousands of fancy pieces but absolutely nothing to wear (yet again? yes I have those moments too!) Decided to get back to the basics with a loose soft cotton top & my fave pair of jeans!
HOW BORING (you might say) …BUT the key is to Accessorize your basics with the right pieces so you don’t have one of those moments. You know…your “I’ll just roll out of bed and throw on jeans and a T-shirt” type of look.
1. You can NEVER go wrong (especially in the summer) with a Panama hat..its near impossible to not look chic in one of these babies.
2. Love the look of men’s belt (this one is from my fiance’s closet..thanks baby! i’ll put it back in the closet tonight )
3. OBSSESSED with thick wooden bangles. I love the idea of mixing & matching different types & sizes of bangles. Gives an outfit a boho summer vibe!
4. although this Michael Kors crossbody purse fits just about 2 credit cards & a lipstick…definitely not the most practical but YES the most awwwwe-dorable thing I have laid my eyes on this season!
So the next time you say ” A full closet and I have nothing to wear”… Think again. You just might say “An Empty Closet But Everything To Wear”
How do YOU dress up your jeans and T? I would love to know! Leave a comment here, Tweet me, or Facebook me with a pix of how YOU dress up your basics!
