Easy Basics

Temperatures are rising, the schedule is getting hectic, and as much as I love putting together polished looks, lately I find myself just reaching for old favorites, like this many-seasons-old Banana Republic sundress.

Have you heard? Gray is one of my favorite neutrals.  I went to a "Mortified" show years back (look it up! It's the best) and there was a bad poetry slam.  One person read a poem he wrote in middle school about the color gray, which does "not have the decency / to be black" and I immediately realized that gray rules, even after middle school.

Guess what else rules? Not wearing a bra.  I thought I'd go ahead and state the obvious.

Sometimes, you just need your easy basics.  And unfortunately, that sounds like a terribly cheesy pop song from the 70's.  Happy Thursday!
