This week I’m sharing about unexpected basics. Of course black pants and a cream cardigan are great staples to keep in your closet–but what about unexpected basics? The things you wear over and over again but they have more personality. I have a few items in my closet that work with so many different types of outfits that I end up wearing them multiple times a week. I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

Some of my favorite pieces that work lots of different ways are my red wedge shoes, my camo skinny pants and my leopard print belt.

Oh, the red wedge. I wear them all the time {and with everything!} You can see them here, here, here and here.

Red shoes are just FUN! Add a little red lipstick and you’re all put together.

Don’t worry, I am wearing pants in the picture above-they’re just camouflaged that’s why you can’t see them! Haha! I crack myself up. I just got these camo pants at Target and they are super comfy and go with lots of different tops and shoes.

And last but not least, a good leopard print belt. Or a good leopard print heel. Or a good leopard print scarf. Leopard print is fun and versatile!
