Upgraded Basics + Linkup

top c/o banana republic // jeans (on sale) // espadrilles (order 1/2 up) // jacket // hat 

If there's one lesson I've learned, fashion wise, it's basics are life to your wardrobe AND they don't have to be boring. I really wish I would have learned this a lot sooner. But I'm always find myself drawn to a great basic with details to impress. We all know black and white is classic--nothing new. It's when you find those special details, like the sleeve on this white top, it gives some personality to the look. And if I wasn't pretty casual, I could see this working with skirts and dressy pants for those who work in an office. I like knowing that, you know if I had a business attire job. 

Thank you for linking up with us! Our picks this week are Brittany from Kingdom of Sequins and Jill from Doused In Pink. 


  1. THat is a cute top, I like the detail on the sleeves and you're right it would be perfect in an office too :)

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you're having a great end to the week with a lovely weekend ahead!

  2. I totally agree about basics not being boring. I am living in them and learning that lesson now that I am home with Ivy more and wearing more casual things. Love your top!

  8. These are such great basics! I used to overlook more basic clothes thinking they were boring, but have realized that is what I love wearing and they really are anything but basic! Haha! They are the easiest to accessorize!
