I like to spice up the ordinary. I would describe my style as classic with a bit of edge. That maybe sounds super lame (it probably does), but I don’t know how else to put it. I like to be a little edgy. I like to mix and match styles. You know, the good stuff. So, when I was introduced to this collaboration with Mikarose, I got super excited because one thing that I LOVE to do is infuse my style into basics. Yes, although this skirt is floral, I’m still considering it a basic. It’s a more or less neutral colored pencil skirt–you can do a lot with that. And a leather jacket? Basic. Gray turtleneck? Basic. I appreciate my wardrobe staples, that’s for sure. You’d think, dang if I put all of my basics tighter that has to be a pretty boring outfit, but no! That’s not true at all! Having basics, or staples that you love in your wardrobe can create all kinds of outfits that not only you will love, but that will also wow your friends.
Another beloved basic? These Talaria Flats! I’ve blogged about them before (here) and I love them! They are another great staple for a simple, sophisticated flat. If you’d liked to learn more about Gaia (my clutch), I’ve blogged about their amazing company here.
In additional exciting news, I am teaming up with Sandy from the Sandy A La Mode blog to give away $100 shop credit to Mikarose! If you haven’t heard of them before, they’ve got tons of dresses, tops, skirts, accessories and even a new swim line for women! All of their stuff is super cute and like I mentioned before, they have great wardrobe staples.
