Back to Basics

It can be so refreshing to just get back down to basics: plain white oxford shirt, boot-cut jeans. Of course, I wouldn’t be true to myself if I didn’t scratch the itch to sparkle things up a bit. So I throw on my Pretty Shiny Sparkly necklace (the Spike the Punch bauble inspired by and named after yours truly), my bejeweled Steve Madden booties, and my new pink & gold clutch from H&M.

And I’m ready to take on the world!

(Or, as was the case The Avengers 3D.)

Photos by my adorable husband. Thanks hubbie! 😉

    Nothing wrong with some basics! Although, your fabulous necklace, gorgeous shoes and bright lip colour keep this from being anything but boring! Love it 🙂

    I love that necklace and tomorrow I will be the proud owner of one. 🙂 I had to send it to my brother’s who lives in the US and it will fly over to Germany tonight. Have a wonderful weekend! xo, Christina

      That’s so exciting Christina, thanks so much for going through the trouble of ordering it internationally. I was so flattered that Elizabeth wanted to name her necklace after me – as they say, “if the shoe fits!”
      Enjoy! xo

    Back to Basics: It can be so refreshing to just get back down to basics: plain white oxford shirt, boot-cut jean…

    I completely agree that sometimes the chicest outfits are not ones splashed with neon, mixed prints or tye dye. It’s good to keep it simple every now and then – you can’t go wrong with this combination! 🙂

    Your photos always look good but these are especially fantastic – you are glowing!

      Thank you so much! It must be the newlywed effect… (and the fact that I’ve been on vacation for a month might help a little too)

    Basics are always definitely refreshing!
    P.S. LOVE that necklace!

    Definitely classics for a reason. I used to have the most amazing shirt that was deliberately made to look like you were wearing a crumpled men’s tuxedo shirt. Sounds hideous but it totally worked for me as I never really look “put together” so much as “thrown together”!

    Love this classic look- there is no way you can go wrong with it! And your necklace is lovely.

    Love that necklace! Sometimes, nothing beats a simple and casual outfit!

    In love with those booties! Love anything that sparkles 🙂

    I love boot-cut jeans so much! They’re so much more comfortable than skinny jeans!!

    Going back to basics – sounds great to me! You can never gone wrong with classics like a crisp white shirt and good pair of jeans. I love how you’ve styled the look with those absolutely FABULOUS Steve Madden sparkly silver booties and your Spike the Punch necklace! The perfect amount of sparkle! 🙂

    I think this outfit will never be out of style. There’s always something about the simplicity of the white shirt and jeans combination that makes anyone, male or female, look sexy. I know I put these on once in a while.

    I love simple styles with a personal twist! Your makeup is also stunning, especially the lips. What color/brand did you use?
