Keyhole blouses are a hot trend this season and I see them everywhere. This Flynn Skye Leah blouse is beautifully made and versatile enough to wear to the office and after-hours. When I bought mine on shopbop, it was sold out shortly after but you can still get one on Flynn Skye’s website.

White dresses are a bit of a high-maintenance but they’re versatile pieces that you can wear every season. These four white dresses are perfect for work, weekend and after-party events and you can feel polished, relaxed and chic in them. What more could you ask for?

Everytime I read an article telling me what essential wardrobe staples I need to have in my closet, they’re basically the same thing over and over again. It makes sense that you need to have the little black dress, the white tshirt and the nude pumps in your arsenal but if you like to shop but want to save money at the same time, it’s hard to decide which pieces you want to add to your collection every season. However, if you have a uniform like me and you buy the same thing over and over again, it’s not a problem. For example, I like white silk button downs so I tend to splurge on them every month. It’s important to be thoughtful and deliberate before you make a purchase and ask yourself “Will I be wearing this in three months?” and “Will I be able to pair this piece in multiple ways with what I already have?”.
Personally, I like to spend my money on these ten basics in different styles and colors. (button-down shirts, knit sweaters, form-fitting dresses, leather skirts, jumpsuits, black pants/jeans, tailored jackets, nude heels/flats, statement clutch, and good underwear). You don’t need to buy all ten items every month but if you have a budget, it’s a good idea to invest in one or two things from this list consistently.
Make a list of the stores that have great basics and are affordable. Besides the usual stores that every girl knows like Zara and Jcrew, search the internet or polyvore to find something that suites your personal style. Some of my favorites are Aritzia, Massimodutti, and Modern Citizen.(Source: Button-Down Shirts: Striped Shirt, White Shirt, Grey Blazer, Black Dress, White Dress, All Clutches are from Clare V.)

My bedroom aesthetic is comfortable, organized and simple. Books and flowers are a must have additions in my bedroom! My favorite one is this last bedroom where you can walk outside to an open garden. How dreamy is that?!

Florals and prints are a rare occurrence in my closet and I notice it everytime I organize my clothes where I usually see a pile of blacks and whites with little color in between. But when I saw this stylestalker oasis romper on shopbop, I immediately had to buy it. No question. No pause. I figure a lot of girls feel the same way about me as this piece quickly sold out in minutes and I was lucky enough to get it in my size. Can’t wait to wear it!

I like to think of the off-shoulder style as a sweet and romantic way to show some skin this summer. You can pretty much pair it with anything and one of my favorite ways to style it is to wear it with ripped denim skirt, nude sandals and a bright leather cross body bag.

Just like the little black dress is essential to your wardrobe, the little red dress should join the rank as one of those must-have pieces when you want to have all eyes on you. I bought this dress from Princess Polly and even though the neckline is a bit too low (seriously, is it just me or it’s kind of hard to find dresses these days without appropriate necklines?), I can’t wait to wear it!
