As a blogger, it can be tempting at times to jump on a bandwagon of the latest trend, whether you actually like the trend or not. But I’ve learned over the years that I am always the most proud of my content when it is a true reflection of my lifestyle and myself.
Today I am providing you with a few must-have items to easily build a classic wardrobe.
1. A comfortable cotton dress
2. A structured jacket
On cooler days, I layer on a classic trench coat or my favorite distressed-denim jacket. The extra layer is functional for those unpredictable spring months, but it also adds another element of classic style to the outfit. Denim jackets are always fun to tie around the waist to help define your waistline.
3. A versatile mid-heel boot
I invested in these classic brown booties a few years ago, and they still remain the most popular pair in my closet. The mid-heel height makes them appropriate for any situation, and the brown suede works from fall to spring — definitely a proven investment piece!
4. A bold lip
Finish your timeless look with a classic red or soft pink lipstick. Nothing can make you appear or feel more chic and feminine than a pretty lip. A soft pink may be all you need for daytime, then kick it up a notch before dinner with a bold red, for the perfect finishing touch.
But putting a look together doesn’t start or end with your wardrobe. Your skin care and beauty routine is just as (or more) important! Always remember to start your look with soft skin. The new Dove, with Moroccan Argan Oil, replenishes 12 times more of skin’s natural nutrients by nourishing and protecting from dry skin in the shower. I love that I can get my skin soft and clean in one step with the Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash and Beauty Bar, as it effectively cleanses without leaving skin feeling dry.
