Blue Basic.

Something you need in your wardrobe: a few variations of the classic button down shirt. (Or maybe you call it a button up, an oxford shirt, etc.) A fitted version, a slouchy boyfriend version, and something in between. Be it crisp white or baby blue, a shirt like this is an easy way to add a little classic American style to a pair of skinny jeans and flats.

Kansas City was blessed with a warm front last week; think 70° days and actual sunshine. A definite spring tease before the snow returned over the weekend, but I’ll take what I can get in terms of nice weather in late January. Warm weather meant venturing out jacket-less in a button down and ankle-length jeans. To finish the outfit: a pair of tortoiseshell flats (seriously love these; bring ’em baaaaaack, JCrew!), high ponytail, and a leather crossbody.

Shop the look:

A good high + low mix in your closet is smart. You can stock up on basics at stores like Target and Gap (which are improving on design + quality all the time), and pick up a few luxe pieces here and there, like this gorgeous almost-marsala-colored leather Saint Laurent bag. (Or not– if designers aren’t your thing, that’s cool too. You don’t have to spend big bucks to be stylish.)
