OOTD- The Staples

I have heard countless declarations that the chambray top is a must have in any lady's wardrobe and I completely concur. I've never encountered any item that could go from work to play so seamlessly. Now, I can't necessarily say the same thing about a pair of polka dot pants, but for my closet they are a close second to this top. This little ensemble was perfectly ready to handle a day at the movies and if I was still a young whipper snapper and headed out for a night of mayhem and debauchery, a few simple changes in accessories (and a few buttons undone) could have made it work just as easily for a night out. If I could only figure out how to make my pink velvet shoes work with any and every outfit, then my closet would be closer to perfection, but something tells me that one item will be a bit tougher to figure out.

What is one item that you are constantly reaching for out of your closet?

Outfit Details:
Chambray top and pink belt- J. Crew outlet (similar here, similar here in a sleeveless version
Polka dot pants- Madewell (similar here, similar here with white background,
Black sandals- old Zara
Pink Chanel- old consignment find (similar here, alternative here in darker pink
Pink link bracelet- BaubleBar (similar here, similar here in red)

  1. i think the item(s) i reach for most often are my striped tee(s).

    i just bought a chambray shirt,because every blooger is raving how versatile they are.

  2. My chambray shirt for sure is one of my to-go pieces of clothing. It just goes with everything!

  3. I have this pretty blue and white hat that seems to go with all my blue outfits!

  4. I LOVE the chambray shirt. I purchased it in December when they had the 30% off sales and I can't get enough of it. You are right, it moves effortlessly from work to play. It was such a great investment. I love this outfit on you!


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
