Good basics make a wardrobe

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone!!

Weekends (especially warm weather weekends) are all about fun, relaxation, and casual dressing. The last thing I want to do is spend any unnecessary time putting together fussy outfits. That's why having great basics to choose from is a must.

That's how I start any outfit. A good basic (or two), then I throw in something a little different or unexpected.

But then there are those basics that are reeeally good. The ones that you can actually make an entire outfit out of. No fussy extras. Just un-fussy goodness.


...A soft, easy-going white tee, a good pair of distressed jeans, a braided leather belt, strappy brown sandals, simple jewelry, and a classic bag... Oh, and some classic cat-eye sunglasses never hurt. Brad said they make me look like Audrey Hepburn. His words. I'll take it.

I recently discovered the BEST place to buy basic tops (super affordable too).  Everlane is an online-based company that sells really well-made basic tops for crazy affordable prices. I've fallen in love with the "Ryan Pocket Tee". That's what I'm wearing in this post...
Oh, and to my sweet twitter follower who recommended that site to me... You are awesome.


Super easy, nothing overly-trendy...   Proof that sometimes, you can put together the right basics and come up with a look that makes just as much of a statement. Maybe the un-fussiness is the statement....

I just know it's my favorite way to dress and like it.

details:
jeans- Express
belt- Target
shoes- Target
bag- Louis Vuitton
sunglasses- House of Harlow 
cuff bracelets- thecurrentcustom.com
disc necklace- thecurrentcustom.com


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, and don't forget to take advantage of the Sephora sale! Check out this post for the details if you missed it!

  2. How is the quality of the shirt? I've been tempted to buy a white t-shirt from them but I can't tell if they're somewhat sheer or not. I'm so picky about that stuff!

    Thanks,
    Kelsey

    1. Hi Kelsey! I'm not wearing anything under mine, other than a nude bra of course. But usually I wear a tank under everything. I didn't have to with this one. They're thin and somewhat flowy, but not paper thin like some shirts like this.

  4. The only thing I disagree with is the distressed jeans. I think distressed jeans look sloppy. Just a personal opinion though. :) My basic bottom is a pair of dark wash super skinny jeans by Arizona.

  5. Tiffany, I would love it if you could do a bag collection video or blog post. Or just show what some of your most favorite purses are for different occasion or such. I would love to know what you think is worth the money. Thanks!

  6. There is no substitute for a 'perfect' white tee shirt. I ended up ordering a white tee and a black tee from Everlane after watching your YouTube video yesterday :) I'm looking forward to their arrival.
    Fantastic casual outfit with hot shoes!

  20. I love how amazing a simple plain tee can look with jeans and some accessories, such a simple yet lovely outfit to put together, and so easy to dress up and down.

  21. Yeah, I really like throwing in a shocker to a classic outfit sometimes, too. Your shoes aren't exactly something "unexpected" but I'd count them as that "one special touch" to that look! They look amazing!

  22. I've talked to a bunch of people who have those cuffs from The Current Custom, and all I have ever heard are great things. I want them myself but cha-ching... The combo Tiffany has is at least $500.
