Lay the foundation with Katie


Welcome divas…

Nothing in life can function to its highest potential without a solid foundation.  That applies to your wardrobe as well, and it is not too late to lay that foundation!  So today I am going to share some pieces (with respect to the upcoming seasons) that I believe are key to having a functional wardrobe that will be versatile & basic enough to work with so that you can present yourself in a polished & stylish way as you grow your “arsenal” & build off of it according to your personal style and whatever is currently trending that you may want to incorporate into it.

– Pair of skinny jeans… I would recommend dark denim for the purposes of this post (skinny, or whatever cut is most flattering for your figure, if you don’t know how to find a fit the flatters make sure to check out Jacky O’s post on Sundays)

– Black blazer

– LBD (little black dress)

– Pumps in black and/or nude

– Pair of hoops

– Printed scarf (I recommend leopard print as it is a versatile, timeless classic if you’re on a tight budget & can’t decide which print to go with… okay maybe I’m just a sucker for leopard print).

– Ballerina flats or some cute loafers

– Black leggings

– Button down blouse (still on my search for the perfect over-sized white with blue pin stripes myself)

– Sweater dress or tunic that can be dressed up or down

– Basic pair of boots or booties

– Handbag for every day that is versatile

– Versatile clutch

– Graphic tee

– Piece of statement jewelry
