Wardrobe Staples

Everyone agrees that the traditional wardrobe staples are things like a great crisp white button down shirt or an LBD but these are a few of my must haves this season that are really versatile staples.

1. A denim shirt - I wear mine open as a sort of faux jacket or as show below and it works with nearly everything!

2. A pleated midi skirt - I'm really in love with the midi length it's not "new" but it has certainly made its way to staple status.

3. A brightly colored bag - I used to be one of those bunches of black bags people but now I'm addicted to candy colored bags. 

Here's what I'm wearing:
Denim shirt - OneStopPlus
Skirt - Avenue (similar here)
Shoes - Christian Siriano for Payless (get them here)
Necklace - Kenneth Jay Lane (similar and less pricey version here)
Bag - Rebecca Minkoff (similar here, here and here)
Watch - Burberry

  1. A jean shirt is a definite must-have. I wear them actually more than a white shirt. Cute.

  2. I also am really falling in love with the midi-skirt trend! I just bought that same skirt you're wearing, and the black one (I think they are both still available), and I am just having the damndest time trying to figure out how to style them. I like the way that you've paired the brown with denim, Kelli! I absolutely LOVE the hair. I've been thinking of super-long braids myself, but just can't sit still for that long. You're looking great!

  3. Such a sexy and classy look! Im a sucker for denim shirts and you wear it well!


  4. Looks fab! That skirt is amaze, so wearable! And love the splash of yellow :-) xx
