Back to Basics

One thing I love about all fashion is the never ending amount of outfits made possible by layering. But as much as I love being creative and unique with outfits during this time of year, sometimes you just need a little trip back to the basics. A silk button down, leather jacket, jeans, and a pair of boots make for the ultimate basic (the good kind of basic) fall look. My rule of thumb is if I’ve been trying to find an outfit to wear in my closet for more than 10 minutes, just go for the classic jeans and a button down look. Basics that aren’t basic.
