I’ve mentioned before how important I think it is to have a closet full of basics…with, of course, more fun and unique pieces scattered throughout. Basics are perfect for those days when you need to throw something on in a hurry, but you still want to look put together. This tee shirt dress from H&M is about as basic as you can get, but I love it. It’s comfy, casual and can be worn in many different ways.
In addition to basics, it is very important to stock up on transitional pieces that can move between seasons. While the past few days have been scorching hot morning to night, last week we had some days where it actually felt a bit chilly in the mornings and the evenings. For days like that, it’s great to have transitional layering pieces such as a denim jacket. Even though we are still in the beginning of August, fall will be here before we know it and it will be time to break out the booties and the lightweight jackets with more regularity.
