Black+White+Camel = Basics

So how about that snow day today? Glad it wasn't anything crazy serious - bonus was a nice quiet day working from home and left my apt only once haha. I was getting a little cooped feeling, happy my dance class was still on this evening. Danced out my couch butt and now onto this week's style post :)

What's black and white and camel all over? Yo basicssss girl! Since living in NYC I have definitely learned the power of basics/neutrals. Don't get me wrong, I do love a fun print but sometimes when zero thought needs to happen I think black, white, and camel. It is seriously the ideal outfit formula. I wanted to put together something a little dressier than the average legging/top combo and the above is what happened. My favorite pieces in this look would have to be my skirt and shoes. I found this cute camel A-line button skirt from H&M last season. I tried my hardest to find similar styles online - not a ton of luck! But check in stores because I know I've seen a few floating around.  Channeling inner Ariana, it has a soft micro suede feel and my previous boss knows how much I love these button down skirts haha. It was all I wanted to buy last Spring ;)

Also these shoes were such a great find, less than $30 and I found them at a Macys Backstage in Queens. They too have a faux suede feel and the block heel is just so comfortable. Although it was chilly on this day - you'll catch me in more Spring looks here with these caged heels. Ok yessss- the top and bag were also Backstage finds as well. SO many great things to shop and outfits to be created in these stores. This leather mini bag caught my eye last holiday season as it reminds me of a Fendi 2Jours bag - Ah another life bag goal. You really never know what you might find.

You know how I feel about my leather jacket - the perfect outfit completer. Linked here are a few of my favs from a previous post I did. Pretty much if you mix and match any neutral basic color for the most part it works. This past winter (jk still in it) I lived in black/grey leggings, a black sweater, and my camel scarf. No matter what I'll always have wine/burgundy to my basics color palette - gotta add that lipstick in. Here I am wearing my fav new matte Lip Paint by Tarte in Bling...this stuff has some serious staying power!

How pretty is this choker? I been obsessed with them this season! Tie necks, layered, velvet, chains...love them all. I've seen a lot of cute options online and in stores at Asos, Forever21, H&M, Zara, and Macys. A friend got me this one for my birthday last month and I think it's so unique. I don't have anything like it and I've received so many sweet compliments on it. Thank you Sarah, you know me well :)

Also I have to make a shoutout to my girls (Sarah and Angela) for helping me get these shots. Total group effort lol The GLitzsquad, Gsquadd, GlamSquad...we decided there was a lot we could do with the whole G thing haha. The day before we took these it was easily 60+ degrees so I figured the next day would be warm too. Perfect right? JK. It was cold, I was freezing here, and my friends were total stars helping me carry my move in worthy bags of outfits and shoes. We made an afternoon of Coffee/lunch at Maman, champagne pitstops at a Bagel Diner, and camping out from the cold at the Nomo Soho (coming soon in a new post). Thanks again guys - Champs on me next round :)
