The 3 Classic Pieces You Need in Your Closet | Chambray shirt, white jeans, ballet flats, leopard purse | Midtown Magnolia Blog Hi friends! I apologize for the radio silence on here. I am struggling lately to find balance in my life. Now that I’m back at work I feel like I’m being pulled in a million directions and can never get anything on my to do list done! Not to mention my sink and laundry basket are constantly overflowing. As a neat freak, this has been hard to live with!

Anyways, back to the blog. I had all intentions of sharing my postpartum fitness journey with you all this past Monday and the post ended up taking much longer to write then I thought. So, be on the lookout for this post to publish this coming Monday!! For today’s post, I wanted to share with you a simple look that’s stylish yet effortless. I love this look because it can be worn year round due to the fact that it’s made up of three classic pieces – a chambray shirt, white jeans, and flats!The 3 Classic Pieces You Need in Your Closet | Chambray shirt, white jeans, ballet flats, leopard purse | Midtown Magnolia Blog

A chambray shirt is a wardrobe staple in my opinion. It’s great for wearing on its own like in today’s look or layering under sweaters and dresses during the cooler months and styling with skirts and shorts as it warms up. I can’t wait to layer it under this striped dress for spring and then wear it with a fun pair of shorts this summer! If you don’t already own a chambray shirt, I highly recommend investing in one and this one has been my favorite for years. I recently wore out the one I’ve had for five plus years and invested in the exact same one again.

In case y’all didn’t know, I’m obsessed with wearing white jeans year round. I style them just as frequently as I do regular blue jeans. And, I especially love how fresh they look in the winter. It’s a nice change of pace from all the dark colors you see. A good pair of white denim is a wardrobe staple for it’s versatility. It’s like a clean sate that pairs with ANY top!

The final classic piece that you need is a great pair of flats. If you find the right pair of flats, you can dress them up or down. They’re also a more comfortable office appropriate alternative to heels. I have always been a fan of J. Crew’s flats for their classic, quality styles that can not only be worn for years but last for years. Plus, they’re comfy too!

To give this look some style points, I added this fun leopard print statement purse that I’ve been wearing non-stop! I bought it for myself as a Christmas gift and am so glad that I did. To me, leopard is a neutral and pairs with everything. Plus, the cute circular shape and cross-body or handbag option make it just the perfect little bag. I’m obsessed!
