Closet Classics

A Manhattan girl should always have these staples hanging around…

The White Button-Down Shirt.

This is a favorite amongst many women on the go, with it’s simplistic chic sophistication and multi-styling capabilities. You can wear this one shirt in several different ways.

By simply utilizing less buttons, adjusting the collar and pulling on your sleeves, this can be an off-the-shoulder top. You can even roll up the sleeves, add a belt, or wear this shirt as a dress…Dare to be bold, am I right?

For a casual Saturday look, I opted to loosen the side-seam buttons, skip the bottom-front 4-5 buttons, and tie it up. I also left the back side of the shirt to hang, for an interesting twist…Business in the front, party in the back?

Here are some of the White Button-Down variations Forever 21 has to offer: Tulip Back, Drop Shoulder, Crepe Cuffed, Sleeveless.

The Quintessential City Bag.

I’m all for the small, trendy bags of the season, believe me. However, it’s just not practical to assume that a girl who needs to travel for a fair bulk of her day would choose  to rock a micro-mini cross-body. I adore this slouchy Zara bag, because I can carry my entire world inside and it would look just as trendy. Its expandable nature makes the bag easy to stuff to the brink, or travel with the bare minimum.

City Bags can be found on Zara’s website.

A girl’s got to have an array of jeans for every kind of occasion.

You can never go wrong with a pair of clean, raw-cut, straight Levi’s. These babies certainly get the nod of approval for a day out in the park, casual Fridays, even bar-hopping nights…But let’s face it, my life is not that exciting and I am totally Netflix and Bingeing Halloween cookies in my Levi’s. What? It’s Spooky Season!

Can you guess where these sling-back kitten heels are from? Obviously, Zara.

Baseball caps are a savior when your hair has taken up an unpredictable nature.

This is my current favorite to wear, since it matches just about everything I own.

A funky pair of earrings.

I dig tomboyish outfits being played up with slight girlish details, such as these beaded, dangly earrings. I feel uber cool and casual, but still fashionable. I’m 99.9% sure one of my Aunts got these for me in Peru, but I found some awesome earrings at Zara’s website: Circular Metal EarringsMulticolored Square Earrings, Star Earrings.
