Back to Basics

Sometimes I don't want to wear anything too fussy or experimental... sometimes it's all about the classic pieces in your wardrobe. 
I wanted to wear my Margiela screen-printed pumps today but they're kind of difficult to work with because of the heel height so I just paired them with H&M jeans, a Ralph Lauren pleated bib shirt, and vintage Versace sunglasses.
Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend!

Sophie Mathilde Hansen said...

I love the way you wear basic items and makes it look glamourous. It is a perfect everyday look and the way you combine your other looks with plenty of colors and funny details this outfit is a great contrast. By the way - your haircut is so pretty for you. I wish i would dare to do such drastic transformation. Thank you for great blogging.

love, Sophie

Hey you look great as always. I definitely love your clutch and heel!!

Anonymous said...

You were my favorite blogger. Now Delmy from fashionbananas is my fav. I love that she sometimes wear flat shoes and still look good. And mainly because of her writings and non fashion things. It’s inspiring. You only talk about clothes, wear high heels and take pictures with a camera that makes glamorous pictures.
Though I still like you, will visit you now and then. :)

Love the blouse, shoes and new haircut! I remembered you said you wish you had the guts to cut your hair like Audrey Hepburn. Well you did it! Awesome! You go girl!

La Petite Anglaise said...

I could not agree more! Sometimes it's fun to play dress up with extravagant embellishment and 'look-at-me' pieces, but nothing says timeless style like a classic white shirt and well-loved jeans combination. X

It's good to return to the basics because it seems as though you can never go wrong. This looks anything but basic though. It's divine. I have a question though. How do you always find jeans that fit perfectly? What are the key things you look for when finding jeans.

sistersay said...

This is one of my favorite outfits because it really inspires me- I totally forgot I could cuff my too-long skinnies like that, and I have a few pairs of pumps in that hard-to-work height as well. Love how the shirt is "oversized" without swallowing you- RL makes the best basics. Check out my take on skinnies @ http://sistersay.wordpress.com.

brit said...

Karla.. you always look fabulous and the basic look is no exception. I am such a fan of H&M jeans.. they are sometimes hit and miss for me but when I find a pair I love, I live in them for quite awhile! Those shoes with the basic jeans and white shirt is splendid.:)
