Foundation Focus

IMG_2654IMG_2668IMG_2552IMG_2652IMG_2626IMG_2608IMG_2598Details: Anthropologie cape – similar || (g) Paige jeans || Vince sneakers || (g) Greg Michaels jewelry

The foundation to every successful wardrobe is by starting with the basic, yet everlasting quality pieces you’ll appreciate for more than five years: a great outwear coat, true blue skinny jeans, slip-on sneakers that match everything you own and lastly, jewelry that doesn’t turn your fingers green.

When I say “basic” I’m describing both the color and function of each piece with the utmost respect and confidence in them. Yes, they cost a bit more than the average knock-off but when it comes to investment, spending money on something that goes with almost everything I previously own and can be worn for YEARS to come is 1000% worth it. That’s just my two-cents on the matter. Shop similar below:

Now let’s talk jewelry – I know you’ll want in on this giveaway opportunity. I’ve teamed up with Greg Michaels to gift one lucky winner (2) jewelry pieces of choice! This is open to International readers as well! YAY giveaways! Check out the amazing collection Greg Michaels has to offer and get stoked.

My pieces are the newest additions to my right arm party – shop them below or keep them in mind if you enter the giveaway!

    Loving the shoes and cape together! The cape seriously looks so comfy, I’d wear it to work in a heartbeat.

    The two jewelry pieces I’d get are definitely that bracelet (maybe in white)….I was actually drawn to it before I saw the giveaway. And then the other piece might be the bubblegum necklace….I really like most everything and reasonably priced…how refreshing!! Jodie
    ps…Really like the cape, I thought it was a jacket at first—maybe that’s why I liked it—it’s not so capey??

    Love love love the simple, yet timeless pieces. As for the jewelry, the Snow Day necklace and the Julieanne Earrings are definitely two of my favorite!

    Love the jewelry! What I really want to know about is the nail color you have on your nails!

    I’d get the Marnie Ring with Multi-Color Crystals and the Diana’s Lily Bracelet with Rose Gold Plating!

    I agree that it’s totally worth the investment to buy pieces that you will last more than one or two season. That cape is pretty awesome!

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!

    Honestly I love the Babe leather bracelet SO much, I want one in every color! But I’d settle for white and black 🙂

    There are beautiful choices but so few in a gold tone. I would choose the Parker Earring and Necklace Set. And this may count as two items which is fine. I would also get the Diana’s Lily Bracelet with Rose Gold Plating. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I love your foundation pieces.
