Basically Cool

Today’s post is all about basics and how they are essential to my wardrobe.  I was sent this classic Breton Stripe tee by USC (from the Rock and Rags by Firetrap collection) and knew exactly how I wanted to style it.  Basics are such useful pieces to have because even combined with other basics they create simple yet classic looks which can be mixed up, dressed up and interchanged with your entire wardrobe.  My ever wonderful photog and bessie Annie said this outfit reminded her of an American College girl and I think she’s got a fair point there, it’s kind of Campus chic, laid back but effortlessly cool at the same time.  I’ve added some detailing with the accessories but otherwise this look is pretty basic; Tee, blazer, shorts.  USC has a great range of high quality basics at the moment so why not head to their site to check them out here.

    Great look, the colors are so pretty and just fantastic for spring. Loved the accessories: the booties and the bag are spot on as they always are. <3 xoxo
