The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, and health.

 

I am not a fan of spending a ton of money on fashion. I feel like there’s a ton of ways to get around spending half your paycheck on clothes ( hello Forever21! ). I mean, let’s face it: some fashion bloggers showcase some expensive-ass items. Like, no I don’t have 2k to drop on linen pants. TSC is about balance & spending a fortune on clothing isn’t exactly balanced.

That being said, sometimes beautiful, quality pieces AKA staples are a total neccesity. Certain items to splurge on: a plain white vest, an amazing bag, or a pair of timeless white pumps. And when I found the site THE DRESLYN, I died.

I died because OMG, it’s so damn cute, but I also died because discovering a one stop, quality online shop for staples is rare.

Anyway, these are the clothing investments I’ve made in the last year:

One.) Striped Linen Shirt: my favorite!! I wear this over bikinis for summer. It’s so cute with black skinnies & white oxfords.

Two.) Crispy White Dress: this dress is timeless & basically looks cute for a night out with pumps or a day at the beach with flip flops.

Three.) Black Silk Pants: everyone should own an amazing pair of pants. I wore these for a night out with the girls with a black silk top & black lips.

Four.) White Pumps: if you know anything about me, you know I’m obsessed with white shoes. ESP these pumps:

Five.) Black Sling Bag: I believe every babe should own one rad, black bag. This one is my latest fav.

Six.) Black Leggings: leggings really suck it all in, so these are perfect when you’re feeling bloated. I wear these when Aunt Flow’s in town.

Seven.) A Staple White Tee: my closet is 75% white tees. This is my latest fav.

Eight.) White Vest: vests make every outfit better. I love a long one that’s sort of fitted. Rag & Bone is just the best brand…ever!

Nine.) A Pair of Black Flats: these are perfect for day to day & they’re super comfortable.

P.S. this bag I got for my birthday is my new boyfriend & such an insane, forever staple:

  • Great collection. Love them!

  • A pair of cut-offs and a good pair of stratigally worn in chucks are the perfect summer staple. you can try as many different type of tops with per the venue and still look fetching as well as prepared for the heat.

    Best part cut-offs are free depending on which pair of denim you want to sacrifice in your closet.
