It’s happening. The hustle-and-bustle of the holidays is creeping in and things are starting to feel busier than ever. I have little time to spend trying to come up with what to wear which means I end up relying on choice favorites that are both functional (read: can work with many different pairings) and chic. You’re looking at a few of those favorites right here: my SAM jacket, Ganni blouse, and my beloved block heels from Chloé.
What is it that gives these items priority in my closet? It’s that they have all that basic-but-special quality. They’re each simple enough to wear a number of different ways (this jacket easily goes from the office to cocktails), yet each one has some sort of unique detail that makes it just a little bit more special than the average closet staple. In the case of the jacket, that detail is the fur collar. It’s a perfectly tailored black blazer on its own, and the fur collar is just the icing on the cake. The same goes for the shirt: the floral print takes an already-perfect silk blouse to a more interesting place. (Fact: I love the shirt so much that I bought the dress version, too.) Lastly, those Chloé heels! I’ve already told you all just how much I love these shoes. Not only do they win the award for most comfortable (there’s some sort of magical cushion in there!), but the scallop detail adds the sweetest little touch.
