If there’s one thing I love to splurge on, it’s good basics. Most people would probably question my shopping habits thinking that splurging on something “boring” is silly. I, on the other hand, see it a different way.
Take this Alice + Olivia slip dress, for instance. It’s about as basic as it comes for a little black dress. Nothing special, just a simple black slip dress. I tend to spend more on pieces like this because of the infinite ways to wear it. Sure you could splurge on a unique, out-there piece. But would you get much wear out of it? Probably not. I’d rather spend my money on items that I know I’ll wear over and over again. This slip dress and suede jacket combo has been a favorite lately and easily goes from a day out shopping to date night all with a change of shoes. The perfect example of how one basic dress can be worn so many ways. It’s versatility makes it a wardrobe classic worth splurging on.
I’m currently on my way to LA, then San Diego for the weekend to see some good friends! Be sure to follow along on Instagram (@jaclynmittman) and Snapchat (@prettypetals87)!
