Three staple pieces.

Gap cardigan; Forever 21 top, skirt, necklace and belt; H&M shoes; Fossil watch

I wear this cardigan multiple times per week. It's just one of those items - a staple - and I don't know what I'd do without it. Why am I in love with this piece? It's lightweight, long, comfortable and goes with literally everything. Thanks, Gap, for being awesome and creating the perfect cardigan.

And then the pencil skirt. What woman goes through life without a pencil skirt? The best part about this one - it's stretchy and comfortable so I can actually lounge around in it. Yup. Perfection. And I think it was $10? Thanks, Forever 21, for also being awesome and creating the perfect everyday-pencil skirt.

Lastly, the watch. I never go anywhere without my rose gold watch these days. Yellow gold is a little too flashy against my super-ghostly-pale skin tone, and silver seemed too.. blah. Rose gold came out on top and I couldn't be happier. Also, the face is the perfect size and doesn't take over my wrist. So thanks, Fossil, for being awesome and creating the perfect watch.

What are some of your staple pieces?

  2. Definitely my variety of pencil skirts - couldn't live without them! And my H&M boyfriend blazer - can wear it with almost anything. Also my cobalt blue shoes - they are kitten heels so they are easy to wear and make my outfit pop!

    Love this skirt! And top.... Also I'm a huge fan of the rose gold watch - I always check it out on the fossil site


  3. Yess.. my rose gold Fossil is awesome too! I wear it basically everyday haha..I really love this outfit on you-- you look amazing!

  4. I've got a few jackets that are staples at the moment, it still being freezing around here and all! Love a stretchy pencil skirt. Oh and I literally laughed out loud at your comment on my blog about watching 5 movies this weekend Kelly! Haha ain't nothing wrong with a bit of relaxing :)

    Life etc

  5. I agree, cardigans and pencil skirts are classic pieces that will always be in style! Blazers and button downs are on my list too :)

  6. A rose gold watch is pretty much #1 on my list right now. There's one from Michael Kors that I drool over every time I see it, but...well, it's MK, haha. Did you get the pencil skirt recently? Because $10 AND comfy is just too good to miss out on...Imma need to get me that exact same skirt :)

  7. I have a fab Fossil watch but I never wear it because one of the stones fell out- boo! Cardigans are such an effortless piece, I need to add more to my collection. You could totally take this outfit from summer to fall with boots and a heavier sweater!

  8. I think that this is, hands down, one of my favorite outfits I have ever seen you wear.

  9. I love that top! That shade of green really suits you!

  10. I totally love my rose gold watch too. I wear it constantly. And that green is fantastic on you!

  11. Love this look - the pop of min green is awesome!
    I couldn't agree with you more - pencil skirts are a godsend. They're so feminine, but professional. I practically live in mine.

  12. Such a great staple to have in your closet. I adore the polka tank though, it makes your whole outfit!
