STYLE GURU STYLE: Classic Essentials

Over the past few months, I have been focusing on building my wardrobe with high-end essentials that will last many seasons. But my everyday wardrobe consists of clothing from stores that are kinder to a college student’s budget.

I have fallen in love with the campaigns from J.Crew and Brooks Brothers. I am inspired by the classic looks of these brands, and mix the basics up with more youthful pieces from my closet.

We’re in just the beginning of winter here in Boston, and I’m already sick of the snowy weather. To lighten up my mood, I’ll throw on a dress or skirt to trick myself into thinking it’s 75 degrees and sunny outside.

In my featured look, I’m wearing a baby blue long sleeve swing dress from Forever 21 paired with my pebbled leather Tory Burch boots (got ‘em on sale). I’m also wearing my favorite leggings from the J.Crew Factory. I prefer these leggings because they have a seam on the side and up the back of the leg which give them more of a structure to look more like pants.

I always make sure to add a couple accessories to complete the look. I’m currently loving Waxing Poetic brand jewelry (mostly because my mother and I are able to trade charms.) This brand is available online and at boutiques. I recommend seeing the beautiful jewelry in person so you can see which pieces match your personal style. I purchase my WP jewelry at a local boutique, Robin’s Nest.
