Just the Basics

On gloomy days, instead of wrapping myself up in a blanket and watching YouTube videos (which is so tempting), I try my best to just walk around if anything. This specific day was actually warmer than usual, so walking around downtown seemed perfect! I found so many little shops and picture-perfect backgrounds that I never even knew existed!

I tried to make my outfit a combination of all the basics in my closet, aka things that everyone needs.

A plain-colored sweater: You can probably make a thousand different outfits just from one sweater. Layering is super easy, you can dress it up or dress it town; the options are endless!

Button down/ Chambray top: This is another item of clothing that can virtually be used for anything! A simple button-down top is great to have for multiple reasons: first, you can wear it any season! Pair it with a pair of fun shorts or with a pair of jeans and a sweater over it (like what I did below!) Second, It can even be dressed up tucked into a tutu or a sparkly skirt.

A Pair of Distressed Jeans: If you don’t own a pair of distressed jeans, you need to hop on the bandwagon now! These Gap jeans specifically that I found at a secondhand thrift store are so comfortable and form-fitting! I’m a relatively curvy girl with very short legs, so having jeans that fit me perfectly are a rare find! Even though I still had to fold the ones I was wearing (please tell me some of you guys relate), I still give these distressed jeans a solid A+!

Check out my outfit below!!!

Exploring Small Town, USA

About a month ago, my family and a couple friends went exploring in our mini van and ended up at this hole in the wall located just near Taylor University! Not only was the aesthetic absolutely perfect; the espresso tasted amazing as well! Ever since I got my Kendra Scott necklace for Christmas, it has been a go-to accessory for all of my outfits! And, as you can see, I’m also pretty obsessed with Alex and Ani bracelets. They add such a nice and simple touch to any outfit!
