40 + Style Casual / Weekend Wear Fall/Autumn

It’s Pretty Basic, Really

Basics for the win again! Grab a few, mix and match, and VOILA… You have an outfit. When in doubt invest your money in good basics. Those are the work horses of your closet. The price per wear for this denim jacket is pennies at this point. Hands down it is the most worn item in my closet.

I too, am drawn to the crazy prints, totally ridiculous fabrics, and haute couture. I drool when I walk through Saks or Neiman Marcus. Hi Gucci. Hi IRO. Hi Chanel. Hi Stella. However, I realize that with my lifestyle, it is highly unlikely that I would ever wear any of those types of items enough to get my money’s worth. I’ll continue to put my money towards basics that I can wear over and over, because I’m a basic b*#$^.

  1. Gotta love the basics! I bought these chinos after seeing you wear them, and they are my new favorite. Paired them today with a black utility blouse and wedge heels. Simple yet classic. Thanks for the inspiration; I really like your style.
