Yep, I’m a rebel. I’m wearing white after Labor Day. But, if you haven’t noticed…I’m not the only one. Why not continue to enjoy the extended summer weather and reflect its light in your attire? I jumped at the chance to wear my new favorite top that I scored on clearance at Nordstrom Rack. When I saw the airy flow of this blouse, I just knew that it was coming home with me. And then I saw the flight of the beautiful birds as its pattern; I instantly fell in love! Would you believe this was under $30? I know, white after Labor Day approved!! But for the skeptics, I added a bit of season transition into my outfit with suede booties to complete the look.

There are key pieces to a wardrobe that can transcend the trends of time. One of those key pieces is the denim jacket. If I had to pick a few articles of clothing that were a “must have”, this would be one. Another transitional garment is the black t-shirt dress. Worn alone with sandals, layered here with skinnies, this basic dress can be a perfect packing item when you want various looks with minimum articles to pack. Third, is the skinny jean. Now this jean cut doesn’t seem to be heading out any time soon, as we see jeggings of the sort in all stores. It is my go-to pant when heading out the door just out of sheer comfort and versatility.
When these pieces are all worn together it may just seem a tad boring or well, basic. Add your personal touch with your favorite bootie or hat, signature jewels, plus that customized manicure and you’ve got a style you can call your own! So all this to say, while basic may be basic…these pieces stand through the timelines, unclutter the closet, and serve as the backdrop to your creative styling!
