I’ve never been all that into Valentine’s Day, which is why I rarely write about it here on CCF. But with a sudden increase in lip-themed things showing up in my wardrobe, I thought it would be perfect timing for a little something like this…
We’ve all read those “fashion must haves” posts where some expert tells you what every woman should own. I’ve even had people ask me this very question for their own stories. But why should I be telling you what your closet needs? Is it a universal thing? Does every woman need to own an LBD and a leather jacket? Let’s find out.
On this kinda cold and dreary hump day, I thought it would be fun to play a little game called “what if?” And who knows…if you guys are into it, maybe I can make it a monthly thing.
So the first in this [potential] series — today I’m asking the question what if your wardrobe could only consist of five things?
I’ve always found it kind of funny (also, slightly frustrating) that the most simple things in life are the most difficult to find. The ideal salad (that’s actually satisfying and filling…why can’t we have both?), a mascara that does what it says it will do (but wait, I just found that) and perfect basics. There’s a ton of companies out there who offer “the perfect basics” (t-shirts, jeans, sweaters, etc.) but the styles tend to be on the boring side. So, do basics have to be boring?
There must be something in the water down under because yet again, Australia brings us the answer — a not so basic, Bassike.
You know those miracle winter days when it’s not below freezing and you suddenly think it’s spring and heavy coats are no longer necessary? Today is not one of those days…but over the weekend (when these were taken) it was pretty decent. Although I learned the hard way, not decent enough to get away with just a sweater jacket. Oops.
