bringing basic back

how do you wear a crop top in the dead of fall? fleece vest + trucker hat! in all seriousness, this is one of my favorite looks that i wore last year while on vacation in arizona. the blog was a wee baby and i wasn’t fully focused on fashion… so this look slipped through the initial cracks, but it’s back and better than ever on the streets of nyc and i’m loving every minute of it!

patagonia vests are a guilty pleasure of mine. they’re warm, cozy, forgiving, and perfect for everyday casual-wear! this particular print is a last-season limited edition, but patagonia never disappoints with their tribal prints, and this year’s is just as spiffy. my top is an easy-to-wear long sleeved tee in a bright maroon. it looks cute with jeans but believe it or not, even better with sweats! a trucker hat is instantly elevated with texture – leather & suede are great options for fall. i topped this look off with a rose gold necklace by gorjana and some classic ugg boots with exposed fur.

sure…. this may be the most ‘basic’ outfit you’ve ever seen #ontheblog, but sometimes – especially when the air is crisp and the leaves are falling – a girl just has to get back to her roots…. and i’m unapologetic about how much fun i had wearing (and shooting!) this look! what do you think? do you take a day to be cozy every once in a blue? follow along on instagram to stay in the loop, and shop your favorite pieces from this look directly below!
