Brilliant basics have acquired quite a bit of real estate in my closet and as many of you know, I love styling those pieces in endless ways so that they always feel new.  Neutrals and updated classics make it all possible and here's a few bits detailing how to do it.

So, as the weather has taken a turn towards the warmer side (finally!), I find myself reaching for my summer pieces more and more.  Still, classic colors like black and beige do still play a very big role in what I'm wearing.

Easy-to-wear summer dresses are one of the necessary pieces that I think every closet should have.  Naturally, you will want to tailor them to your lifestyle and needs but really there are so many options out there that I don't doubt there is something for absolutely everyone to fall in love with. 

This one is such a perfect choice for summer.  The light, airy fabric is so very pleasant to wear and the drawstring waist and button up front make flattering on so many shapes and sizes.   Pair it with some cognac colored sandals and a straw tote and you are perfectly dressed for summer.

This minimalist style shirtdress is in need of very little effort to style making it another extremely nice option for summer.  I love it with a pair of dark sunglasses and a great, classic black bag.  A buttery pair of slip on sandals finish the look with some flair.  

Each time a write a post here, it becomes more and more clear as to why I absolutely love classic pieces with an updated feel.  They are simple to style, flattering to wear and they make getting dressed so nice and easy.  That to me is how it should be.

I hope you found something here that inspires you and that you can incorporate into your wardrobe as well.  The pieces mentioned today are all linked below should you want to shop any of them.  Hope everyone is looking forward to something fun this weekend.  I'm sort of giddy about mine.  Have fun everyone and thanks for reading.
