Closet Cravings #3: The Basics

Thursday, February 12, 2015

As I settle into my 26th year, my style has become so much more about being comfortable with the added bonus of simultaneously looking presentable.  I hear my 13 year old self chastising my mother for embarrassing me by wearing men's cashmere sweaters and loose fitting clothing, yet I find myself wearing only vintage cashmere men's sweaters and considering brands like Eileen Fisher [GASP].

I mean, wouldn't you wear that outfit?  Maybe you saw this coming, but that is straight from the Eileen Fisher website.  In any case, I'm all about the basics these days.  If you want more fashion posts, click here.

1. Alessandra Rivera Chloe hat - I don't know about the rest of the world, but if you're going outside these days in LA you must have a chic hat.  It is absolutely obligatory and if you don't no one will like your selfies on instagram.

2. Rebecca Minkoff Finn convertible clutch - I know fringe is kind of trendy, and usually I splurge on basics rather than trends, but this bag makes me want to do the opposite.  Plus, it'd be perfect for COACHELLA.  If you're into that sort of thing.

3. Julian & Co arrow necklace - A staple dainty necklace that you can wear alone or layered is a key piece that any jewelry lover, nay, woman, should own.

4. Rag & Bone skinny jean - distressed is the way to go these days, and I am seriously needing the perfect pair of black pre-destroyed denim jeans.  Because who wants to go to the trouble of paying less money and ripping them yourself over the years?  Instant gratification is not overrated.

5. Zara multicolored ethnic scarf - IS THIS SCARF FOR REAL?  We all know how obsessed I am with kilim...and now I can swathe myself in it!  This finally fulfills one of my life long dreams from childhood.

6. Madewell slub v-neck pocket tee - I can't say I've found the perfect 'basic t-shirt' brand yet, but these are super soft with a looser fit and don't cost $85 like some other t-shirts (I'm looking at you Alexander Wang.  But if you want to send me several "prototypes" I'm totally open to converting.)

7. DV by Dolce Vita Caden boots - These are the perfect winter-to-spring-to-fall booties.  If you can wear something more than half of the seasons, it's definitely worth it.

8. Free People turtleneck pullover - This sweater is the perfect accouterments when you want that 'I just threw this on and didn't try to look this good' look, which is what I go for basically every day.

What are you guys wanting in your closet right now?
