a lesson in basics



Shirt: J. Crew; Skirt: Vintage; Shoes: Valentino; Sunglasses: Ray-Bans; Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Jewelry: Gorjana "Super Star" necklace c/o; Michael Kors watch

When in doubt, sometimes it's best to just go with a few basics -- a men's white button front shirt, leather pencil skirt and kitten heels (bonus points for studs!).

    1. They definitely run a bit small (for me anyway) and a bit narrow. I got a half size larger than I normally get -- hope this helps and would love to see how you rock them!

  30. Love this dressed up basics look, Krystal! I find that the best outfits are often the simple pieces infused with amazing detail or made from beautiful materials: the shoes, skirt and bag are definitely prime examples of this. You look classy & beautiful!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  37. Definitely schooled, but there is nothing basic about that skirt, bag, or those shoes! Certainly sophisticated and classic, and this look can go almost anywhere. I wish this could be my uniform. So, so chic!
