You know the days where you feel like you have so many clothes but nothing to wear? That happens to me a lot, and on those days I gravitate towards my favorite classic pieces. Not surprisingly, these tend to be neutrals. I’ve had this faux leather jacket since my Nordstrom x Topshop event in October and wear it at least once a week – it’s a wonderful basic that’s great to throw on over a tee + jeans combo or a more dressy ensemble like this outfit. I kind of can’t believe the jacket still available, mostly because it’s only $85! This silk Theory top is a recent acquisition but I’ve worn it multiple times already – it’s a simple silk piece, but the layered look makes it a touch more elegant. It’s easy and looks chic with any bottoms. The skirt was a Nordstrom sale find and is now sold out unfortunately, but this Alexander Wang look-a-like is a close second. This trio of colors is abundant in my closet and I am constantly jumping back to them when I’m bored of prints and loud details. What are your go-to items on days like this?

PS – I’m driving down I-35 this morning heading back to Austin for Easter weekend – how you are spending it? Hope you have a happy weekend and eat lots of Reese’s peanut butter eggs!

    I love the balance here of modern and classic. The leather skirt and jacket give the look some edge but the layered top is soft and feminine. I’m a neutral girl myself so this ensemble definitely speaks to me!
