Anything but Basic

(Vest: Asos / Shirtdress: Rebecca Taylor / Pants: Forever 21 - Similar: here or here / Wedges: Bandolino / Sunnies: Wholesale Celeb Shades / Watch: Michael Kors / Pinky & Knuckle Ring: Infinitine)

For the most part, this outfit is composed primarily of very basic pieces; however, styled together, they come across as much more than that. My latest favorite addition to my wardrobe is the white shirtdress from Rebecca Taylor. The layering possibilities for this piece are seemingly endless, and for someone like me, who thrives on layering, that is exciting. I paired the shirtdress over pants to give a bit of a change up from normal outfit lengths. Because the white button-up is on the longer side, it allows the floral pattern of the pants to pop out last minute, which I think is a really cool twist. To break up the white, I added a black vest with a longer hemline in the back to really push the uncommon lengths to the extreme. I feel the vest pulls in the black background of the pants quite nicely, as well. To bring out the feminine feel of the florals, I chose a ladylike pair of wedges. The straps really highlight the ankles (I'm strangely obsessed with ankles and wrists) and give length to the front of the foot, which I believe lends way to the illusion of longer legs (win!). Finally, I threw on these incredible round sunnies, that really packed a statement and had me feeling like Linda Rodin, which, P.S., is my life goal.
