As I mentioned in this post, I wasn't sure if I would keep this dress. But with a pressing of the pockets, I like it much better and decided it would be great for travel and for both casual and dressy days this summer. I think I'll have the straps shortened a tiny bit so it's not quite so low-cut.
As for the scarf, this is one I have wanted for years and found brand new, tags still attached on Poshmark. I love Diane von Furstenberg, and loved how this large square silk scarf is a cool blend of colors, but is also her portrait. This picture gives a good example of the size of the scarf; this picture shows von Furstenberg with the Warhol above her. I've had a lot of success on Poshmark, both selling and buying. While I can't set alerts like I can with eBay, I find the prices more reasonable and love that shipping is always the same format and sellers strive for honesty, speed, and quality. Have you tried Poshmark? If not, check out my post about the app!
I called this post basics because this look is all wardrobe basics. While the dress and scarf are new, the concepts are not unfamiliar to my wardrobe. I stick mainly to a wardrobe of simple pieces like this denim jacket and dress, but update with personality-filled accessories like leopard print pumps, a scarf, or necklace with a bunch of personal charms. Accessories are a great way to give basics multiple lives over multiple seasons!
