Nothing Better Than a Basic

I love clothes but I'm not exactly wearing heels and dresses every day. I'm really into elevated basics — like quality denim and good tanks — that can be thrown on when I'm in a rush which is always. Here are some of my favorite everyday looks that are comfortable and easy to recreate.

A good strapless top.

Tube tops are kind of like elevated white tee because you can wear it with jeans but it looks more dressy. I'm wearing one from Donnie and this Ref one is cute too.

Good blue denim + a good black belt.

If you're going to splurge on anything, splurge on jeans. There's nothing better than denim you can wear every single day (huge fan of these Agolde straight jeans). Same goes for the belt. And then all you have to do is add a high-neck white tank with pretty bra straps showing through. So easy. The Agent Provocateur bra only goes up to a D but Cuup has more sizing options and really gorgeous colors.

An oversized white button-down.

Obv a white button-down is great with a swimsuit for vacation but it looks just as good with jeans or shorts. I'm wearing an LPA one but it's almost sold out now so I've linked some similar ones.

Washed black jeans.

The easiest way to switch up a look is oversized washed black jeans. Again, paired with a white tank, belt, and a necklace. I like a lower cut tank with dark denim.
