It’s Pretty Basic, Really

Basics for the win again! Grab a few, mix and match, and VOILA… You have an outfit. When in doubt invest your money in good basics. Those are the work horses of your closet. The price per wear for this denim jacket is pennies at this point. Hands down it is the most worn item in my closet.

I too, am drawn to the crazy prints, totally ridiculous fabrics, and haute couture. I drool when I walk through Saks or Neiman Marcus. Hi Gucci. Hi IRO. Hi Chanel. Hi Stella. However, I realize that with my lifestyle, it is highly unlikely that I would ever wear any of those types of items enough to get my money’s worth. I’ll continue to put my money towards basics that I can wear over and over, because I’m a basic b*#$^.

My Adidas

Last week for my birthday (45!), my family gave me the sickest soccer mom suit EVER. As soon as the temps drop, I live in mom suits when I’m at home. I love being comfortable. There. I said it. Yes, I love clothes and looking cute, but the instant I get home all that crap comes off and stretchy pants go on.

So, about this mom suit? They got me an old school Adidas track suit with the three stripes and old trefoil logo. Jacket AND pants, you guys. I feel like Run D.M.C. or the Beastie Boys! I haven’t worn the full outfit out yet, but I did sport the jacket to my company’s game day picnic. Because I am cool like that.

I can’t wait to wear my full suit to the grocery store to pick up cucumbers, ground beef and toilet paper. Bad ass mom suit for the win!!!

Transitioning to Fall in Olive Green Gingham

I love that gingham is a thing. This shirt makes me especially happy, because it is a dark olive green and the gingham checks are bigger than normal. The color works well with my coloring (yay!), and the larger than normal gingham check pattern adds a bit of interest.

This shirt has been great for early fall. It’s a nice weight cotton poplin so it’s breathable on those warmer fall days, and the color says “hey fall is coming…  let’s go get a pumpkin spice latte”. I foresee it being layered under blazers and sweaters as the temperatures drop.
