Outfit of the Week: Red, White, and Blue

Back to BasicsFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

This outfit was originally inspired by the fact that I couldn't find anything to wear. I decided to go back to basics, with a staple every girl should have in her closet: the white tee. As I constructed the outfit, I realized not only did I have a cute, versatile outfit, but it was actually patriotic for Memorial Day. Serendipitous, indeed. 
Here's my inspiration board breakdown:
  • Basic white tee. Pay as much as you'd like, but the cheapo ones work fine for me. I suggest getting one a size or two bigger than what you wear. I could easily come up with a hundred ways and uses for the white tee. Don't forget a V-neck one as well.
  • These cropped jeans from American Eagle are super cute and comfy.
  • I love the colors in this scarf--reminds me of a watercolor painting. It's also patriotic!
  • These summer sandals are comfortable and don't overpower the rest of the outfit. Maybe wedges are more your style?
  • An armful of bangles adorn my tan arms. These pick up the colors in the scarf nicely.
  • Y'all know I love my makeup! I'd spritz on a little Clean perfume to match my basic and clean outfit.
  • My toes would have a classic red polish on them.
  • I love NARS lip gloss and this red color is just enough red for me, since I'm not brave about wearing red lips!
  • I gotta have my mascara, and this Pro-Curl XXL from Maybelline is really popular this summer.
