Every closet needs some classic basics, like a relaxed chambray shirt and comfy little flats.
Post is a collaboration with J.Jill. All opinions are all my own.

I have to admit that basics haven’t always thrilled me. I was always one to go for the interesting, the trendy, the edgy piece instead! But as I mature, I really appreciate how basic staples are the building blocks of a workable wardrobe.
This classic basic is 100% woven cotton with rolled up short sleeves. Machine wash. Size down one size. (c/o)
These almond shaped flats are super comfy with an elastic strap on the heel and padded insoles for comfort. The black and dusty rose shades are leather, but I picked the camel color which is suede. Great basic summer to fall shoe. True to size! (c/o)
The J.Jill Basket Bag(c/o), Old Navy Curvy Jeans, Kendra Scott Elora earrings, pink sunnies (cute option), black leather belt (good basic option), and my Daniel Wellington petite classic watch. (c/o)

My pick from last week’s link up party is Jen of Librarian for Life and Style. How fabulous does she look in this pretty bright red blouse, black fit and flare skirt, and adorable statement piece bag?
How’s your week been going, Friends? I’ve been super busy getting ready for going back-to-school next week. In case you missed it, be sure to check out my back-to-school outfit ideas. They’re actually great wear-to-work ideas for many jobs!
And New York Fashion Week is only a month away. I’m getting super excited about that! In this post, I’m looking at the fall 2018 runway trends and ways to translate them to your closet right now.
As always, thanks so much for being a part of my style and blogging journey!
