Basics Again | Accordion Pleats and Chambray

Wondrous Wednesday everyone!
The weather sure did get cold so suddenly, hasn’t it? It was below freezing the past two days here in DC! 
Well, I snapped these photos over the weekend when it was warmer outside. I went with an outfit formula I gravitate towards when I have “simply nothing to wear”: chambray and black. Some combinations never go out of style. I’ve worn some variation of this formula so many times over the years (like last summer and during the beginnings of this blog). It’s nice to know that as my style evolves, I can still come back to my style comfort zone and still look pulled together. 

Thanks for reading!

  1. I love the Kate Spade bag!

  2. This is the perfect outfit for a "warmer" weekend. LOL It has been SO COLD here too! Below freezing the whole week and a half. It's brutal. Hurts my fingers and face the most! I love the outfits you do, even as your style evolves. You really have your signature twist that shines through all your photos as time goes on. Very cool to see!!

  4. You have a new blog design, haven't you? I really like it! :) Also cute look you're wearing here, these denim-like blouses are just so versatile!

  5. Chambray top is such a classic closet staple that goes well with pretty much anything. Love that you made all these F21 pieces look classy and polished.
