Back to Basics

Back to Basics Disney

When it comes to feeling good about what you’re wearing, selecting pieces that make you feel comfortable is almost always the way to go.  I don’t mean wearing sweatpants all the time…(although don’t threaten me with a good time ;))…I mean more comfortable in the sense that you feel like yourself, and you feel confident with what you’re wearing.  It translates in how you carry yourself, if you feel good about what you have on, it shows!  From my experience I think this even translates on camera.  For me basics and neutral colors are usually where I feel the most comfortable.  While I love to experiment with style and try new things, I always find myself gravitating toward the same simple tones and pieces, and I’m cool with that, it’s who I am.

When styling for this shoot I wanted the focal point of my outfit to be my new booties from Faryl Robin for Free People.  I love that the pattern is fun and different but not too crazy, and the heel is the perfect height and shape.  After playing with a few different looks, I decided I wanted to keep the rest of this look simple to let the pattern of the boots be the statement…So back to black I comfortably slipped as I put together some of my favorite classic pieces.

I tend to lean toward neutral pieces I can mix and match easily, and keep for a long time.  The jeans I’m wearing you may recognize from my post Hudson Creates the Perfect High Rise Skinny: Meet Barbara,  the top is a basic black tee from Forever21, and the Jacket (borrowed from my sisters closet… thanks sis ;)) is from All Saints.  The booties are the Addison Boot from Faryl Robyn x Free People.

Jared Smith picked some awesome locations around downtown LA and shot in a way that I think really brings this look to life.  I love the way the simplicity of the outfit seems to fit in with what feels like two extremes, the cold grey  metal and the bright polka-dots.
