Free People tank and rings, Bailey 44 skirt, Super sunglasses
I’m probably not alone when I say that every season brings a new “constantly worn wardrobe staple.” It’s usually one of those purchases you don’t think much of when it is made, and maybe not even the one you are the most enthusiastic about buying. It’s probably not the most expensive thing you purchased this season and likely not the most exciting either. But for some reason, it’s THE ONE. For me, this summer, there are two. My first is this black maxi skirt I found at Nordstrom. It is amazingly soft, just the right length, and so comfortable I could sleep in it. In fact, every time I open my closet, I have to exercise restraint not to grab it and put it on. It can be worn with just about everything. A crop top lends it a sexy look while a fitted tank and jean jacket create a more casual vibe. I’ve worn mine for something as low-key as a pedicure at the corner nail salon and to look uber sexy at a pool party where I forewent the bikini bottoms (beware of panty lines ladies) and just wore a bikini top and sandals.
My second is the crop top. I have about three versions of this top. It looks amazing with jeans for a casual look; with a short fitted skirt (Pleasure Doing Business, for instance) for a night on the town; with cut-off shorts for a beach day; or like here, with a maxi, for a day of shopping.
