Hello, everyone!  How is your week going?  Mine is going alright, but I’ve been really trying to make it a point to stay positive no matter what!  One of my resolutions for this year! 🙂  Some days are harder than others, but I know that my mindset makes all the difference!  I just have to keep telling myself to “stay positive” and keep my mind on the bright side of things.  Anyone have any good tips of how to do this?  Would y’all like a blog post with a roundup of my tips?  Let me know in the comments!

Anyone else out there a basic kind of girl like myself?  Now, let me clarify.  I really love going all out on my outfits some days and wearing statement accessories – y’all know how much I love my accessories!  However, I do love a good outfit full of basics!  One of my absolute favorite basics in this cami.  I got it last summer, and I have worn it so many times I’ve lost count!  It is perfect for layering, and you will get SO much wear out of it!  It also comes in a bunch of other colors, too! (linked below)

I also love wearing cardigans.  I think this item definitely falls in the “basic” category because you can do so much with it!  I wear these to school so often during the week because I never know how my classroom is going to feel! ha! I also really like being able to cozy up if I’m chilly, or take off a layer if I get too warm!  I love that you can layer it up with a long sleeve tee underneath or a good cami (like the one I mentioned above).  There are so many looks you can get just from one cardigan, it is definitely a great basic to have in your closet!

Here are some of my other favorite basics:

Just imagine all the possible outfits you could create with just a few of these items!  Definitely something you want to stock up on!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate all of your support! 🙂
