stripes tee and white denim

whenever i’m in doubt as to ‘what to wear today?’ i reach for the classics. having certain wardrobe staples on hand just makes life easier. and i always say i never met a stripe i didn’t like especially if it’s a black and white striped tee. so guess what? several striped tees are folded neatly in my drawer ready to wear at a moment’s notice. striped tees are classic and timeless and add a nautical flair to a casual outfit. even though i wear white denim year round, i tend to wear it more often come spring and summer. since summer is slipping away at a rapid pace, it’s time to make hay while the sun is shining which translates to wearing my white denim on repeat. they were last seen here and here.

thanks to classic wardrobe essentials today’s ootd is easy peasy and took all of five minutes to assemble. striped tee – check. white denim – check. summer sling backs – check. black clutch – check. it may take a bit of work at the beginning to fill your wardrobe with classic essentials, but once in place you’ll never wonder ‘what do i wear?’ again. if you’re new to the blog check out my back to basics series that discuss the core pieces needed in every wardrobe.

    A good classic look with a novel twist–I like the wrapped look of the tee. I still love those slingbacks–I have them and wear them a lot. Always get compliments on them.
