The weekend is here and I could NOT be happier! It’s a shame that things get so busy throughout the week. It makes you long for the weekend. Then before you know it, the short weekend has come and gone. I was in my closet the other day and noticed that I don’t have enough basic pieces. That may sound crazy considering the fact that I have so much clothes. But it’s true. My plan for this year is to work on that. I need to replace trendy pieces with more basic pieces. That will make my wardrobe more versatile. One of the few basic pieces I do have, are shirt dresses. The great thing about shirt dresses is that you can wear them throughout the seasons. What makes them basic pieces is that they can be layered with things.
There are simple ways to spice up a shirt dress. One of my favorite is to layer it with a long cardigan. For my outfit today, I’m wearing an olive green shirt dress from Forever 21. The solid color of the dress made it really easy to add my long, Aztec patterned cardigan. True, this is definitely not the best option for days as cold as we’ve been having lately. But my goal is to show you the possibilities when it comes to styling. Who cares about my comfort? LOL!
