Seeing my blog traffic rise to unseen heights thanks to sweet shout outs of Annebeth and Paulien (thank you ladies), it's clear to me that I'm not the only one with thoughts on the fast fashion mentality that is dominating the fashion industry these days.
Probably there isn't going to happen a huge mentality change in fashion any time soon, but you'll see: basics will be hot again this summer! So why not take a look at queen of the basics, Olivia Palermo, to get some inspiration. Thanks to her, I'll convince you in no time that basics are the new way to dress and keep your cool all summer long.
No one can deny that she has a killer sense of style. How is it even possible that she never fails to look chic and put-together?! Answer: Olivia loves to keep things simple and just knows how to do it. Instead of mixing all her eye-catchers in one outfit, she shows that one statement piece at the time is more than enough. Less is more for miss Olivia.
I envy her effortless looking style with the perfect hair and makeup. I can't stop imaging her mornings like this: 8am the alarm rings, snooze 'till 9 am, 9:05 doing some yoga, 9:30 brushing teeth and makeup, 9:37 brushing hair, 9:40 grabbing some clothes without even looking, 9:45 looking fabulous and ready to grab a coffee. Realistic? Probably not. I think that looking effortless like Olivia costs a lot of time. But her style convinced me: for me this summer some basics please!
