So I’ve been talking a lot lately about having dependable, chic basics in your wardrobe. Those pieces you can go-to no matter the season or current trend cycle and you’ll look polished and chic. And I have found that Gap is the place for those necessary basics. Whether it’s T-shirts, boyfriend jeans or dresses Gap has those simple basics we all need at good prices. I recommend always checking the sale rack at Gap, I have found many treasures there.I mean I got this dress for fifteen dollars… it doesn’t get much better than that.

Spring has sprung in Florida and the heat is on! That means this racerback, jersey and poplin cotton dress will be on repeat in my life. I’m obsessed with this dress because of the simplicity, it is light, airy, moves with the wind and can look chic with heels or flats. These chunky white and black snakeskin heels are chic and versatile, and can be worn with just about any outfit. And that’s because Michael Kors knows simple, chic, dependable basics.

Like Marilyn Monroe said, ” give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

And Happy Women’s History Month!

Seeing Red

DSC_2688 CSC_2763 DSC_2701 DSC_2714 DSC_2739 DSC_2725 CSC_2757 DSC_2685Wearing: H&M Turtleneck sweater, Wrap skirt from T.J. Maxx in NYC, Charles David thigh high suede boots, Target black belt, Sephora cream lip stain (01), Michael Kors watch, Vintage and Etsy gold rigs

When it comes to sweaters I am a huge supporter… it’s too bad I currently live in Florida where spring has already sprung. So my sweater wearing days are about to come to a end for the season, but this red turtleneck wool sweater needed a moment. Wearing oversized, chunky knits with belts wrapped tightly around the women’s waist will give them that cinch we all need when wearing a big sweater. Try pairing your oversized sweater with a skirt and boots (like me here) or pair it with a wide-leg trousers but always remember to cinch your waist.

There is no color I adore more than black. I am drawn to neutrals rather than bright hues of colors, but everyone needs that one to-go vibrant color. Mine is red! I suggest finding that vibrant color that looks best with your skin tone and style. Then find a way to incorporate it into your day to day routine even if it’s just a pop or color on your lips.
