remember that last gap style post i did with the punchy pants? i’ve teamed up with styld.by and rue again and we’re going the more muted direction with small hits of color.

this is one of my go-to looks – dotted shirt, dotted colorful scarf. dot girl for life.

and yes, this shirt is as comfortable as it looks. i have worn it more days in a row than i would like to admit to you actually.

i have been in desperate need of more basics in my wardrobe like this. it feels like my closet is filled with way too many statement items and not enough just-throw-it-on-and-run pieces. i am making it my goal this fall to invest in more of these comfy basics.

what about you? do you want some fall basics for yourself? i’m pretty impressed with this roundup of iconic outfits over here (and the site design is nice – side note!) snag this 30% off code below for the item of your choice! enjoy your weekend! -bri

  • 2. Lottie  |  August 17th, 2012 at 6:57 am

    i really love your top!

    i am the same as you i think i always feel i have more dressy outfits but my everyday wardrobe is a bit empty and lacking. think i need to invest in some basics especially sweaters and stuff for fall.

  • 3. Kelly  |  August 17th, 2012 at 7:10 am

    That discount code is so great! I’m going to finally pick up the polka dotted smoking slippers I’ve had my eye on… and maybe some basics while I’m at it, all thanks to you! :)
