The Fashion Magpie New Basics

New Basics.

SO inspired by the snap above — they look sophisticated but comfortable. Chic without trying too hard. Just the look for a mother-of-two? Below, my top picks for nailing the “new basics” look:

PERFECT WASH AGOLDE JEANS

$115 DENIM FTW

PUFFED SLEEVE (LOOK FOR LESS WITH THIS)

A STYLISH EVERYDAY KNIT FOR UNDER $100 (OR THIS FOR LESS)

COOL BUT NOT TRYING-TOO-HARD BAG (ALTERNATIVES: THIS OR THIS)

BLASE-COOL BOOTS (OR THESE, IF YOU PREFER A HIGHER SHAFT)

A STYLISH WHITE BLOUSE FOR $40

CHIC DESIGNER SHADES (ON SALE!)

UNFUSSY V-NECK PUMPS, AFFORDABLE VELVET SLIPPER/LOAFERS, AND THE CHICEST $35 YOU’LL SPEND THIS YEAR

Finally, I’ve never worn a big gold hoop but something about this look makes me want to try them. I like these.

P.S. More trendiness and what’s in my cart RN.

P.P.S. Bathroom reboot, a prelude to love, and when we were young.

  1. YES to gold hoops! Plus red lips as suggested by Sandra above. Have you seen the gold hoop earrings by the label Vrai & Oro? So minimal and timeless, and the quality is great too. I’ve had 2 of their earrings for a few years now and have been really happy with them. https://vraiandoro.com/products/lightweight-hoops-earrings?variant=12459967119426

    Also been very curious about this “kick crop” style of denim. I visited our Madewell store to try the Demi-boot denim and I think the style needs to grow on me. As a petite (as in five-foot-nothing), I’m not sure…I believe you’re petite too so I’d love to see how you style cropped denim!

    1. Was not familiar with that jewelry line but LOVE those! So chic. Very into it.

      I’ll keep you posted on the denim — in a few months :/ When I can fit into regular denim again!!

      xoxo

  2. Hoops are my signature! They lend a touch of drama to an outfit in a very simple way.
    With a red lip (so classic!) the whole outfit is elevated. Definitely try them out!

  3. Oooh, this snap is SO good for inspiration! Love their clean looks. Those AGOLDE jeans are perfection, and I love all of your other picks as well. Going to try and recreate this look when there’s less snow on the ground! :-/
