Back to Basics

Pants from Stage // Tee from Vanity // Vest and Shoes from Maurices
“I Read Banned Books” Bracelet from ALA Store

I have a lot of solid color tees that I wear to work with my khakis, and recently I felt the need to dress them up. So I headed to the trusty Mall, and I picked up a couple of these lightweight flowy vests.

I like how it adds a little bit more visual interest, but it doesn’t take away from the colors involved in the outfit already. Plus, they go with all different colors, so I think these will be versatile additions to my closet.

This is one of my favorite accessories to pull out of my jewelry box to dress up my solid colors. I picked this up at the American Library Conference this past June, and it was worth every penny. Naturally, I look for excuses to advertise my love for great books, and this is a fun way to do it.

You’ll be seeing a lot more of this vest and the other that I purchased here soon, I’m sure. What are some of your favorite ways to dress up your basics?

  1. Was Ryan making you laugh in the first photo haha. I love the second one with the full view of the vest. It’s cool how the small things really add to an outfit. Awesome bracelet!
    I like to layer with my basics. Plus adding bling bling is always fun! 🙂
