{Guest Post} Classics :: Closet + Home

Please welcome Becca!
She is here sharing classics for your closet and your home
Such a pleasure to have this lovely lady guest posting for me today!

Hey y'all! So happy to be here today. Mae's blog (and baubles!) have always been a favorite!
I thought it would be nice to move away from the some of the trendier things
we see around the blog world and show you the classics that you can find in my closet and home.
(ok, some may still be on my wishlist!)

Yes, even classics don't last forever.  Shapes, lengths and fit change.
However, these are basics that have been around in one form another for quite a while.
They are all pieces that I believe will last in your closet for the next few seasons, at least!
Once you have your classics, then you can decide what part of your budget you want to spend
 on trendier pieces to keep your closet and home looking up to date and fashionable!
Hope this helps you build the basics, they are oh so important! 
Lets get to work, shall we?


kate spade earrings: a perfect classic that will go with anything, and adds just enough pop!
 chambray shirt: dress it up or down. pair it with any color or print, this shirt is perfectly comfortable white wide leg jeans: flattering on every body type and will pair perfectly with the tops in your closet lace tank: layer it in all four seasons, batenburg lace is the classic of classics
black skinnies: everyone needs the perfect pair of black pants. great with heels, boots or flats.
black dress: the classic black dress is a must. find one that  can be worn on any occasion
 leopard flats: animal print has established itself as a classic. it will add personality to everything. striped top: one can never have too many stripes. they will be "in" forever
gold link bracelet: wear it alone or with an "arm party"
 black heels: great with jeans, skirts or dresses and these from Zara are amazingly comfy!
classic neutral couch: is a perfect basic for your living room, add your flair with pillows 
original art: is a staple and must have for a room, know your taste and invest in great pieces! (1,2,3)
kilim rugs: have been a great staple from the middle east for decades now
statement bookends: mine are gold horses and I know they will be in my home forever, look to thrift!
ginger jars: are another classic that have been around but are making an even bigger come back
jute rugs: are another great basic that can be used in any room, also great for layering
candles: make a house feel like a home, lit or not they add warmth and a wonderful aroma!

Thanks so much for having me, it was a blast.
Hope y'all come back and visit me at LowLife Couture!
