I am not a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. I am, however, an elevated t-shirt and jeans kind of girl:
Specifically, I’m a coral jeans, linen tee & metallic flats kind of girl. They’re basics, they’re just elevated basics. Instead of standard blue jeans, I chose a bright coral. And instead of a plain cotton tee, I chose a boxy linen tee. And, instead of neutral flats or, tennis shoes *shudder*, I chose a metallic, ankle strap flat.
By wearing variations of basic pieces that fit my colorful personal style, I can make a “classic” look work for me.
