Trending Tuesday: #springbasics

If the world of alicia was the internet #springbasics would be trending. Kind of a lame trending topic, well sometimes you need lame to wear with your statement pieces! Here’s what basics my basic girl wardrobe needs:

 

Plain White Tee:  And some not so plain white tee’s… basically I need something I can utilize with a casual look or one for work.

Basic Black Slacks:  When most of you work pants are plaid you find yourself needing some basic black work pants.

Black Maxi Dress:  The hunt continues for a simple black maxi dress.  For me my must haves are wider straps and a slit because I need that movement flexibility.

Navy Striped Shirt:  Believe it or not this is a basic, especially during Week O’Nautical and much harder to find than anticipated.

Metallic Flats:  Metallics go with everything and as much of a heel girl I am, I need a practical walkable shoe.
