Fashion // A Wardrobe Full of Basics

Top: Zara, Skirt: River Island, Coat: Primark, Boots: Primark

Wardrobe basics... now where do I start? Basics are key pieces that everyone and their man and dog should own, they are so versatile and tie outfits together. For me, these are something that I never really raved about, they always seemed a little boring and I just could never style a plain top; I understand how silly that sounds but I always felt like; A- I was trying far too hard or B - I just looked extremely frumpy and boring! 

But true basics do not need to be boring, think outside the box and be a little more daring which is something that I have learnt over the past month after a little trip into Zara and finding this beaut striped tee. 

After my other half bought me the grey v-neck t-shirt from the Ivy Park range in Topshop for my birthday last year and I have not stopped wearing it making me realise how vital it is to own basics but also I now love a good v-neck and don't mind to have a little cleavage on show - after all I turn 24 soon!! 

I am still on the lookout for more basic tee's, it may take time and a few stressful shopping sprees but I am determined build up my collection and have fun styling them up.
