I think every girl has items she just can’t live without, like a favorite bag or shoes and so on. But when I think of essentials I think the simple things, the building blocks of an outfit and the pieces that can top a look off. My go to pieces are always a blazer and tee – usually together. And, If I am being completely honest here, I am more than impartial to a red lip, so much so I have days when I wish I was born with blood red lips. Okay, maybe thats a bit of an exaggeration, but really, they are magical with how they make a look instantly glamorous. Another accessory I couldn’t drag myself to leave home without is my aviators, I will admit to even being that person who wears sunglasses at night. And heels. Don’t even get me started on those, you will never hear the end of it! I LOVE heels. More than love, if I could marry a pair of shoes I would marry a pair of black pointed-toe pumps. I’m legitimately head-over-heels in love with them, pun intended. I see essentials as pieces you can wear on a daily basis but they never get old, they’re timeless and simple, yet extraordinary. (See what I did there?)

I wanted to quickly share the outfit I wore this past Saturday since I had comments on where to find the outfit pieces and jewelry! I had a very busy weekend between family, friends and errands, and over the next few weeks between grad parties and finals will be having more, so be aware that I may have more than a few “insta-outfit” posts – you’ll just have to forgive the iPhone quality and enjoy the shopping instead!
