Back To Basics

It’s that time of year when I pull out my warm-weather run around pieces and scrutinize them. Are the whites still white? Tees in good shape or, do they get demoted to workout wear? Also, I’ve bought most of my big ticket items that were on my list from when I first spied them on the runways. Now, it’s all about the basics. Even though it’s not warm enough for tee shirts, I tuck them under jackets. And my favorite weather is when I can wear shorts with a big sweater, that warm/cool crosscurrent.

Denim shirt, aviators, slide, white shorts, striped hoodie, white Dr. Scholls, black tee, Levis 501s, tote, grey tee,white tee.

  • Great basics, and thanks for the reminder to pre-order the Emerson Fry linen tees, they’re the best.

  • I love the look of the Italian Slapper slide by Emerson Fry, but I had to send them back because the leather band is ridiculously narrow! I wear a B width and couldn’t even begin to push my foot through the band.

  • It’s so funny Dr Scholls are now $88!!! I used to buy mine in the back of Rite Aid when I was in high school! Wish I had saved them!

  • These are all lovely. I’m after a pair of 501s

  • I still remember the epic eye rolls that I would feel compelled to direct my mother’s way when she wore her Dr. Scholls. Flash forward to now: the white ones you have included above look impossibly fresh and chic and I really must have a pair.

  • Preston, you nailed it here, totally my kind of run around vibe. Actually just picked up new white boyfriend jeans, jimmy jimmy boyfriend skinny, and a white rag & bone neck tee to get myself out of town quick as it seems one of four daughters has closeted the others. 🙂 Thanks for all your inspiration, love your blog.
