Closet Basics in Black

Hi friends and happy Monday!!! Today I’ve got a great closet basic in black to share with you. Every woman’s closet needs pieces that are mix and match and this skirt falls into that category. This is a piece that will be a real workhorse.

This skirt a great little piece to have in your closet. You can dress it up with heels, or down with flat sandals like I have here.

The tie is attached, and I have it wrapped around to make it shorter for a simple knot, but it can also be tied in a bow if you just bring it to the front.

You know how we love our pockets, and so of course I was thrilled with that and it’s lined about half way down. I thought this would be an elastic waist pull-on style, but it zips in the back. The website says it runs small, and it does. Unless you have a naturally small waist, you’ll probably want to size up.

This cami is one of my favorites. Loft has killed it this summer with these new [to me] cami’s. They aren’t too low cut which is always a plus. Mine is almost sold out, but this one is very similar, and I have it in off white. Also a good one. I like how these to together almost comes off as a little dress. PS. I am loving this necklace and wearing it daily, usually layered with this necklace.


This skirt comes in 5 color-ways/prints and they are all pretty.

    I really like the skirt but can’t justify the price for it! If it eventually goes on sale though, I may grab it! Been weeding out my skirt collection and updating them one at a time!

    • July 12, 2019 / 9:48 am

      Good idea Mireille! Hope you’ll be able to snag one. XO
