simple is beautiful

Recent Finds | Re-Fresh Your Basics

Thursday, April 24, 2014

I've been itching to update some of my basics now that spring is in full swing and found some recent finds to pass along to you.  I like to keep my outfits simple and add on a colorful accessory such as a necklace or scarf.  It makes getting dressed easy and I can switch things up as the day goes.  If temperatures warm, I can easily drop the scarf and add a pretty necklace.



I would have never in a million years thought that I would like jeans from Loft.  Not that there's anything wrong with jeans from Loft, but I just never thought of them as a jean source.  Before our trip I was desperate for white jeans and had tried several other stores.  I'm happy to say the modern skinny ankle jean did it for me!


I've been searching for the perfect blazer.  Each one I tried on was either too long or too short.  This one fits just right!  I love wearing it with my white or denim jeans.  It definitely adds a bit of sophistication to my every day attire.  The added bonus is the price!

I'm not sure what I did before I found this sweatshirt.  It is perfect for those in between days when it's neither hot nor cold.  I wear it with white denim and a scarf or statement necklace.  Sometimes I layer under a pretty blouse and pull the sleeves and collar out just so.  It is super soft and has become one of my favorite basics!


I'm smitten for these eyelet shorts!  They also come in navy which I may go back for.

Gap has a great selection of bright and cheerful espadrilles.  This is perfect for me since I keep my outfits simple.  A splash of color here or there goes a long way.

I hope you are having a great week!

  3. I love your classic style Rene! Those eyelet shorts are darling and that blazer does look like the perfect blazer. I may need to go try that on at Nordstrom. Great length and cut.

    1. Love this blazer Allison! I've tried several at different price points and this one really worked for me. I love how it dresses up jeans and looks great with a tee or a nice blouse.

  4. I'll take the eyelet shorts and the legs the model is sporting! Those white skinny jeans are super cute and I concur - I wouldn't think of Loft as a place for jeans but I'll give them a try if you recommend!
