HOW TO DRESS UP WARDROBE BASICS

I’ve recently thrown out most of my wardrobe to force my hand at saving and investing in quality wardrobe pieces.

Initially I felt too under-dressed to leave the house and run my errands, but thankfully I could pull the look together with my well-loved leather tote and new Gino Paoli open-toed boots.
