I say wardrobe basic because they’re wardrobe basics for me and my personal style. I could not imagine not having these pieces in my closet. And I have accumulated quite a few. Tees and cardigans are one my my go-tos during Spring and Fall.
We all might have different definitions of wardrobe basics based on our life style. For someone with a bolder style a bright, patterned top might be a basic. But since you’re here we might agree on wardrobe basics/essentials (which will be a entirely different post hopefully soon).
Tees – still not sure there might be such a thing at too many tees. I tend to be just a tad picky when it comes to tees. I’m really liking this one..it’s not too low cut, the V part is not narrow and there is no indecent exposure when you bend down. Wearing size Small here and it fits great.
I mentioned these jeans in a different post but quick recap – they fit like a glove…well fitting glove that is 😉 I had to wiggle my way in but once past that they fit amazing. I love that they have stretch in the waist (one of my biggest problems with jeans is waist). To me they feel more like leggings. Very comfy though. And I find them slimming.
This cardigan…. For as long I was eyeing it you’d think it cost $$$ and not under $30. XS kept selling out and I settled for Small. It a tad big. Which I usually don’t mind…but once I wear a well fitted cardigan I start to over-analyze how others fit me (which is case with other items as well). Now I want it on xs 🙅(I might give this one to my sister and go for xs). And this over-analyzing is thanks to this cardigan. Bottom line: runs tts and it’s great for the price.
Still loving these flats. Wore them recently with a pencil skirt and they still looked amazing.
Cardigan: Old Navy

Also, don’t forget about the Shopbop sale Event of the Season – it ends tomorrow 4/14.
I ordered these jeans (kept hearing great things about Frame Denim) and a leather mini tote which is already sold out. If you don’t have a leather tote I’d recommend this one. I have a almost identical one and it’s a timeless bag.
Have a fantastic weekend!
