Slip Dress and Suede Jacket

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)!

    Hi Jacklyn. I love this look! 🙂 The photos in the link to the jacket look quite yellow. Is the jacket you are wearing the same colour as what is linked? Thanks!

      Hi Kim! The jacket is not exactly the same, but very similar. The coloring in the photos (the jacket I’m wearing) look a little darker than it actually is. So I think the color to the one linked is pretty similar. Hope that helps!

    Excuse me! I am loving your new site (and this look). I couldn’t agree more that you should spend on the basics. Have fun in Cali! And – thanks for making me want pretty much every item you packed. 🙂
