Must Have Core Pieces: The Modern Classics
I'm the kind of person who spends more money on accessories than clothes but that's probably because I'm a basics girl at heart. Skinny jeans, leggings and t-shirts are the back bone of my closet because they're so easy to dress up and dress down, depending on how I accessorize myself. I never really find myself saying "what am I going to wear?" but I usually ask "what shoe am I going to wear?"
I favour quality over quantity and prefer to invest in well made t-shirts, sweaters and leggings. Right now I'm really digging the ones from Eris & Thread, a brand that's homegrown and operating straight out of Toronto. They're all about the modern classics and feature beautifully cut knits, tees, and scuba jersey. Here I'm wearing their Ingenue black tee paired with navy leggings for a bit of colour. I like the feeling of being comfortable and moving around the city with ease which is why I'm drawn to pieces like this more and more each day. What are your go to pieces right now?
STYLE TIP FOR THE BUSY WOMAN:
I've actually been doing something really naughty recently. On the days I go to bootcamp after work, I go into the office dressed in leggings and a t-shirt. I throw a cozy cashmere knit over top to "dress" it up and pair my outfit with black ankle boots. I look office appropriate and when it's time to hit the gym, all I have to do is change into sneakers! ; )
PS - I wear a sports bra under my tee. The ultimate in lazy girl dressing.
