The Best Luxury Basics
Getting dressed up all the time and trying out new trends is obviously a big part of my job, however I have to admit that the comfort of simple basics is something I truly love returning to with my everyday style. These days I find myself investing in simple quality pieces more than anything else, like this Comme De Garcons sweater and Golden Goose sneakers that I found over on Farfetch.
I started to realize the wear and tear I have on my basics, so why not invest in ones that will last? I was so sick of buying cheap hoodies that didn't last longer than a few months, so I started revamping my collection of staple pieces and scouting out quality ones that will continue to work season after season.
Throughout the week, I'm usually running errands for the blog, organizing shoots or travelling for work. The airplane has become a second home for me this past year and with a tight schedule, I need to be presentable when I land while still be comfortable to fly. This outfit exudes exactly that, the Comme De Garcons sweater is chic on it's own but even better when it's layered with a jean or leather jacket.
Since I only travel in flats or sneakers, these distressed Golden Goose ones are a nice change from a simple white pair - I'm obsessed with the little details on these shoes! They even pair well with a summer dress, making it easy to slip on at the airport if I have a meeting or event to quickly get to.
I'm a big believer in feeling and looking put together all the time, even it you are running around the city. Your outfit doesn't have to be uncomfortable or pretentious for it to be stylish, some of my favourite outfits are made up of staple items like this!
