Everyday Basics

This  week has me sending texts that make my friends say, “Reading about your day has me exhausted.”  That’s why I am relying on the everyday basics of my closet to get me through this week and every day this month if I’m honest.

This time of year there are parties and special events and blog posts to upload with holiday looks, but what I’m really wearing on the daily is all my best and favorite basics. These closet staples are must-haves and make it possible to just grab and go every morning. I want to get as much done now while the girls are in school so that I can enjoy their time off at Christmas.

Monday morning had me running all over the town.  It was warmer and the sun was shining bright. No jacket needed.

Staples like a stripe shirt, black booties, and a cardigan work with all denim washes and pull a look together.  I added a green statement necklace from years ago to brighten it up.

    You always wear everyday basics perfectly. A boatneck striped tee in black+white is crucial to a woman’s wardrobe.

      Seriously. It is like a uniform and sometimes I think it may seem boring but it works. In the summer I tend to wear a lot of all black looks because it feels more me and I call it my “Angelina Jolie Mom Mode”. That lady is always in all black while traipsing about.
