BASICS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME
Today was a successful day for me. I got my grade for my final thesis and I got an A. All the hard work pays off. When I think back of what I was going through the past weeks, I think of little to no sleep, my bad mood and a lot of coffee. Lacking in concentration at home, I had to go to the library so I wouldn’t get distracted. But to save time, I just went to Starbucks right across the street of my workplace. I was there from 9AM until 3PM and then just walked over to take my PM shift until midnight. Same shit the next day again. I was busy all day and there was no place for other thoughts in my head. When I’m stressed I don’t even want to spend a second about thinking what to wear. Being stressed means that there’s no time to shine with your outward appearance. Still, there’s nothing worse than not feeling comfortable when you’re on the go. So here’s what I do. Basics is the name of the game. My picks: a pair of destroyed denims and a simple white top. I could leave it like that and just put my leather jacket on, but as I’m not a fan of too simple outfits, I paired the basics with some key pieces, wearing my Valentino Rock Studs. Further I took a scarf which I like to add to my ‘boring’ outfits. I combined it with my basic outfit in three different ways:
is perfect for bad hair days.
is perfect for spring days as the weather can get kinda coolish in the evening. Further … wearing a scarf as a scarf might be functional, right ? ;P
THE U S E L E S S KEYPIECE
I’m not quite sure why, but I like it when something is flying away when wearing my outfits. So if you have a longer scarf, you can actually use it as a belt and just leave it hanging on the sides (lol nah). I like to just put it through one loop of my jeans. Sometimes I do that when I don’t have enough space in my bag to bring a scarf with me and I know that I’ll need my scarf by the end of the day, so I won’t freeze my ass off. At least that’s the excuse I use. Actually I just really like wearing it that way.
How do you pimp your basics? Let me know, which scarf pairing do you like the most? Any other ideas?
