Concrete Catwalk // Back to Basics

August 27, 2014


I really don’ t want this Summer season to end, friends!

Every August, I start to think about what a full and blessed few months it’s been, but when the first morning chill arrives (happened last week!)… I start to dread saying goodbye to my favorite time of year.

Autumn is certainly a well-loved time around here as well, but it acts as a chilly reminder of the impending winter and that usually turns my stomach to knots at a moment’s notice.

May sound silly, but one of the main things that gets me most excited about the transition is switching over my wardrobe, and the chance to pick out a few new key pieces for Fall.  Until THAT happens, keep reading to see how I’m relying on a few simply styled classics to carry me through…


I’ve nearly LIVED in these rockstar super skinnies for the past year now, and am especially loving the new Old Navy.  Paired with a white pocket tee, the look is basic enough to hold up to my usual choice of bold accessories, without having a chance to look too over the top.

(Though to be fair — I occasionally DO love dressing a little on the wild side. *wink*)

All it took to jazz up this laid-back look was some glitzy jewelry, a bright pair of heels and my new hipster waist bag, and I was ready for a weekend full of exploring with Mom and Brother.

Do you ever lean on jeans and a tee build your look around? It’s a bit more rare for me, but I’m thinking I may have to utilize the concept of a blank canvas more often. :)
