Looks I Love

Lately I've been focusing on getting back to the basics with my wardrobe - I haven't been buying many new things & the purchases I've made have been much more careful and well thought-out.  I've been leaning towards simple & classic pieces that I can remix in modern ways to get the most use out of my clothes.  Here are a couple of the looks I'm currently loving featuring pieces that are on my wish list (and under $65) for the transition into fall:

ASOS Wrap Pencil Skirt // Ravel Tassel Heeled Loafers (on sale!) // Gap Leopard Flats (20% off w/ code GAPNEW)

I've been trying to do the exact same thing with my wardrobe. I've been focusing on buying pieces that I can mix and match and that I can use year after year.

Love your ideas and your blog.

I love this! Both looks are so cute and perfect. I did the same kind of post for today! I think it is important to get pieces that can go from season to season with just swapping out a few things.
