Over the past couple of years, I’ve noticed myself reaching for all the neutral basics in my closet on repeat (more here and here). I’ve found myself craving simplicity. I love the fact that I’m able to mix and match basic pieces so easily. They’re also so easy to dress up or down with accessories and I LOVE that they’re so perfect for ALL of the work zooms. Today, I’m rounding up my favorite basic tops that I’ve been living in this year which are all under $60.00 (clickable above). You can’t go wrong with these tops–they literally go with everything!
After a bunch of very hot summery days in LA, we finally landed on some slightly cooler weather this week. I’ve been saving these flared jeans for the occasion because I’ve been living in dresses for the past few weeks. Today, I paired these jeans with a crisp white button-down–which is one of my favorite basic pieces in my closet.
I can’t believe how hot it is in Los Angeles this week. Yesterday, the temperature on my car read over 110 degrees and being outside felt like someone was baking the whole city in an oven. So much for getting excited about fall layers–at least for now!
Fall in Los Angeles is a season you kind of have to create for yourself. September through early November here are usually still extremely hot and I oftentimes find myself dreaming about fall back in upstate New York where I grew up. I miss the leaves changing color, brisk mornings, an actual need for hot drinks (let’s face it: pumpkin spice lattes in LA just don’t have the same ring to them) and most of all, I miss fall layers.
So thankful for such a peaceful weekend with my hubby after so many weeks in a row of packing our schedules non-stop. Outfit-wise, I’ve been tying a bunch of fun scarves around my neck on repeat. I love a good pop of color and modern twist on vintage.
