ELEVATED BASICS

December 20, 2015

As we’re descending to cuffing season, so are the thrills of frilly dressing. I’ve been more focused on finding practical, quality basics. Pieces that don’t cause a fuss, but will last you a lifetime. Hence these two new grey goodies: the Kalamarie bag and Margiela sweater.

This Kalamarie satchel with crocodile details holds all your files for daytime meetings and all your makeup for nighttime outings.

This Margiela sweater, which is 70% off right now, is the ultimate sweater. Just the right amount of oversized, with exaggerated elbow patches to keep it interesting.

I paired the look with my knit Opening Ceremony cashmere skirt, some vintage Celine heels, thigh high tights , and an O-ring choker. My tip for chokers: I like to turn it around so the back buckle is in the front. Makes it a bit more interesting.

shop the look:

    Perfect look with a ton of great basics ! I am loving the grey you incorporated, especially that gorgeous bag. The croc detailing makes for a great statement. I am also loving the elbow pad details on your sweater. This whole look is very chic, and even better, very timeless. Great look as usual!
