Walking Back to Basics

As I get older, I have found that my style has really evolved into something that is specific to me. Lately, I tend to stay away from the pieces that are considered “trendy” and stick more with something classic or what I know will work for me.

This look was a way that I could implement a few trendy pieces into my wardrobe while still buying classic pieces. by sticking with classic black and denim, I was able to portray a chic look that still had some fun, trendy details.

This fun sweater has the cutest ruffle, peplum hem. It really adds a touch of whimsy to the outfit. The fact that it is a classic black sweater, though, means that I am going to be able to use it with multiple pieces and allow it become a staple in my wardrobe for years to come.

You can never go wrong with a great pair of denim and this pair is no exception. They fit great which is the most important part of any pair of denim. I urge you to not focus so much on the size when trying on a pair of denim and, instead, try to get a pair that looks good and fits you well. Too tight jeans can make you look bigger than you actually are and baggy denim can make you look shorter. Every single pair of denim is going to fit you differently so it is crucial that you try on multiple sizes and styles to find what works for you. The pair that I chose is slightly high-waisted giving me a little extra control in the tummy area. They also have a great flare leg which helps to elongate the leg.

I keep my accessories very simple and classic. I went with this gorgeous Kendra Scott necklace in a fun color and my favorite leopard flats. A little leopard really adds a fun pop to any outfit and since it has practically become a neutral, it is trend that you can utilize on a daily basis with almost any outfit.

Bottom line, you should be wearing pieces that make you look and feel great. For me, I know that I can never go wrong with classic black and a pair of great fitting denim. Everything else is just a little extra icing on the cake!
