Concrete Catwalk // Back to Basics

IMG_2790I 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...IMG_2821I’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. :)
