When I posted this look on instagram, during my time at The Homestead, I called attention to the graphic tee and asked if anyone knew what l’avenir meant in French without googling it.  A graphic tee is a great conversation starter (and caption topic) because it clearly stands out and is the featured part of this look.  So often, we have statement pieces that become the focus of our looks – whether it’s Cath in her big hat or a sequin dress, or the both of us in a gorg faux fur coat. We tend to gloss over the basics, because they are staples that we tend to reach for on the daily.  SO, let’s not do that this time. Let’s talk about two pieces that every girl needs to have in their closet. 

During the winter + transitional months, black jeans and a black cardigan are a must! I picked up this Who What Wear Target Collection Black Cardigan in the fall and it has been worn and worn and worn.  $35 very well spent. It’s still avail in a few sizes, so grab it while you can! If your size is sold out, here are 7 other options, all affordable and all the perfect staple for your wardrobe.

These black skinny jeans from Mott & Bow have been my go-to pair for years! They have the perfect amount of stretch, and hug in all the right places! At $118 they are a total steal considering the amount of times you’ll reach for them.  Not a skinny jeans kinda gal? Here are a few other pairs to consider, all at reasonable price points >>

PS. l’avenir means the future! So, cheers to that.
