I can't be anymore straightforward in stating that the best investment pieces for one's wardrobe are simply plain basics than wearing this outfit straight up your face. The sooner you realize that the often ignored blank canvases will save your life as soon as the temperature snoozes 30°C, the bigger you'll thank yourselves. Unfortunately, it took me a closet-full of statement pieces and piles of unworn printed dresses to realize that all I need are a few cropped tanks and tees in plain blacks and whites to complete a summer daily dress up equation. Indeed, it works. Because you can only be so versatile with prints and patterns as long as you have the right accessories and shades to go with them. The rest becomes unwearable - unless you're Sussie Bubble who can mish and mash just about anything and everything, flattering or not, and remain ridiculously famous.
As it is, Saturday, like most other off-day weekends call for a laid-back outfit, specially if you're out to run errands and do meet-ups in between. And with the scorching heat, would you rather melt or die styling? Because I ought to think that styling work best with layers - back me up here Chezka. But even then, basics ease up layering too. The point is, it's not about completely sacrificing style but making it easier to achieve. That's where the beloved ones come in.
Or do you have counter thoughts? If yes, please enlighten me.
On the other hand, I wish you a wonderful weekend as I'm having. Thanks to all your positive remarks on my rather "feeling blue" post previously, I'm in better spirits. Thank you! I really appreciate it.
