Here we have Exhibit A: A cropped tee worn with a skirt. This tee is definitely on the shorter side of my comfort zone – when I moved around, you could see a bit of my torso on the sides, due to the curved hem – but still loads of fun to wear. Perfect for an oppressively hot day when added outfit ventilation is welcome.

I like the way the lines and draping of these pieces look like waves, curvy and fluid.

I will say, though, that this skirt and a supercool pair of Helmut Lang pants I scored at more than 50% off have proven themselves tricky to style. When a garment’s point of interest is just below the waistband, you’ve gotta pick your tops carefully or you obscure the best bits. This skirt actually has an exposed elastic waistband, so tucking isn’t even an option! (I’ve tried.) But it’s comfy and elegant and works nicely with this Alternative top and a few others I’ve already got, so it’s definitely sticking around.

Dressed for: An Unexpected Staple

Already Pretty outfit featuring knit moto jacket, aymmetric tunic leggings, fringe handbag, black ankle boots

Boots – Steve Madden Winola (no longer available) – similar

This little jacket has turned out to be one of my favorite and most versatile pieces, and it was a total impulse grab from Twice. It’s comfy, washable, goes with so many looks, and lightweight enough for summer wear but also (somehow) warm enough for colder temps. It actually makes me a bit aggravated when impulse buys become staples. I would like the things that I meticulously research for months on end to become staples. And they frequently do. But so does the occasional shot-in-the-dark purchase.

Does this happen to you, too? Any current wardrobe staples that were impulse buys initially?
