Simplicity Revives My Closet

This L.A.M.B. skirt was a gift and has been in my closet, unworn, for a while now.

As much as I like it, I have had a very hard time with it.  I never know what shoes or shirt to wear with it, and because I'm short, poofy skirts tend to make me feel like a cupcake, or on the other hand, I feel like it may be a little too youthful for me.
But....I like it!
I'm into the super high waist and the embroidered print.  So that's why it still hangs in my closet.  Until today...

Solution: A simple pink button down shirt.  Who knew?  And you can't see my shoes-sorry- they just happen to be an old pair (and dirty) of black and white oxfords from Target.  Done.

I haven't been into basics for a while, but I always love a clean, simple look.  It's classic and beyond trendy.  They can take something that seems unwearable and make it work.

What basics do you depend on in your closet?

The skirt is absolutely gorgeous!! Wished it was mine ;)
You can wear it with pumps, will look much better. I´m also very short (1,63m).

Have a nice day..

That skirt is cute!

My essential basic is a plain white tee. I own so many of them; but they never fail to come in handy!

Oh i think that skirt is lovely! I think going with a simple button up shirt is the perfect thing to tone down it down. It instantly makes it classy. Awesome styling :)

I think the skirt is really nice on you! The shirt is perfect with it, it's basic enough to let the skirt do all the talking! :)
