I don’t know about you guys but I am constantly looking in my closet and thinking ‘I have nothing to wear’. Not totally true but I finally realized why I think this. Meat & Potatoes. 

I’m sure you’re thinking I’m crazy right now, but hear me out. I read this Michael Kors quote the other day.. “70 percent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes. 30 percent should be icing and fluff— that’s colour, pattern, shine, accessories.” Basically I’ve been buying tons of pieces that are fluff, I realized I needed more day to day apparel. I started shopping for basics and I have noticed SUCH a difference in my closet! 

Distressed jeans are my go to right now, they can add edge to any outfit but still basic enough to match everything. Every girl needs white button down in their closet, you can layer it now and pair with shorts later. My favorite thing to splurge on is a purse, you can wear it over and over and over without getting sick of it. I can mix and match this outfit so many different ways. 

BaubleBar is my go to for jewels and right now they’re having a 50-75% off sale! 

Happy Hump Day everyone. xo, Riley
