There are certain pieces that I think no matter how you describe your style, you just NEED to have for summer.  In my book, those include a lightweight, white cotton tanklace up sandals and original blue ankle jeans.  All three of these pieces are unbelievably versatile and will last you season after season since they are timeless!

As I've gotten older, I've become much more aware of how far a few classic pieces will take you in a wardrobe.  Classic blue jeans & white tops are among the pieces that I wear again and again when I want a timeless look and they never seem to fail me.

If you haven't heard of Lilla P yet, don't fret, because I hadn't either until recently, but after learning about them, they have quickly become one of my new favorite brands.  The brand creates sophisticated staple pieces that are SO flattering. Each piece has such versatility and is guaranteed to become an essential in your wardrobe.  Not only do I love how lightweight this top is for hot days, but I also love how crisp and tailored it looks; it paired perfectly with skinny jeans for a casual spring day and think of how cute will it look with a pencil skirt for a work day?! Classics are a fashion girl's dream - so many styling options! 

I know skinny jeans seem to have been put on the back burner this season in favor of denim culottes, flare jeans and many other jeans styles, but skinny styles continue to be my favorite type to wear.  I love that they are basic enough to be paired with anything and let the rest of my outfit take center stage. In the summer time, I reach for ankle length pairs to show off a hint of skin & a fun sandal. (Sizing Tip: I'm wearing my normal size in SHORT length, which just has a shorter inseam!)
