Staples (a portion)

Use yesterday's post as the norm, my norm. I love heels and fancy get-ups, alas my 'norm' consists of mainly flats & 'skinnies' (Skinny style jeans). Of various forms, colors and styles - for easy transitions & numerous combinations! My closet consists of a few staples in the Flat & Jeans category. 

Flats: For me, are essential for running around the city, where walking many blocks is the norm - I rarely drive and use public transportation 90%. I have fancier flats to the super casual, and just by changing the shoe you can take an outfit up or down a notch or two! My go-tos are ballet flats, loafers, Topsiders, TOMS. The key is find something you like and get it in multiples - you will wear it more! 

Skinnies: The most commonly worn jeans in my closet are skinnies. I love them, stretchy and easy to throw on. Find a brand that works on you and get various colors! And Patterns! The best part is you can find them at every price range - I personally splurge on the calssic denims that will last and have saved on the trendier, colored versions. I have a wind range - burnt orange cords, red, cobalt, dark/faded/black denim.

Flats: (Leopard) Loafers, (Red) Ballet Flats, (Gold) Topsiders, (Yellow) Toms
Denim Skinnies: Floral, White, Dark  

 What do you wear around on no-muss-no-fuss weekends?

  2. Leggings and oversized t shirts. I try not to go outside. Kidding but sort of serious. I need the topsiders and those floral skinnies on the asap.

  4. I agree I'm ALWAYS in flats and skinnies. I wish I could wear heels more to elongate my 5'2 frame but OH WELL!

  5. Love your staples. Mine are the same - lotsa skinnies, lotsa flats - basically my uniform. I feel so much more put together when in heels, but sometimes it's just not happening!!!

  6. Yup, my staples too! I actually have three of the four pairs of shoes you posted :) Sometimes if I really want to wear heels at work, I put them in my bag and just slip them on at the office. There is just no way to walk any significant length of time in them, plus, they make me walk a lot slower.

  7. This is me to a tee! Flats are essential in my wardrobe since I stand and walk much of the day. I absolutely live in skinnies. I wish I had a pair in every color! You can pair them with anything!

  8. This is definitely my go to casual weekend look as well! I love skinny jeans with a basic t and flats. I have too many pairs of TOMS and Sperry's to count, but they work so well with so many things!
