Step One: Pick a basic, any basic! I chose a white tee and this simple Theory ruched skirt.
Tee: Enza Costa
Step Two: Add some kick ass accessories (arm candy especially) and leave nothing out. This includes necklaces, belts, scarves, sunglasses, bracelets, rings, toe rings (just kidding, NO toe rings). I think you catch my drift, eh?
J.Crew, Rachel Rachel Roy, from Jeweler, glamROK x 2
Step Three: Add a totally inappropriate pair of shoes. Here, booties were an obvious choice. I love a suede bootie in 100 degree weather, it's so (in)appropriate.
Boots: Rag & Bone
And now for the full, finished look of from bad to rad.
Call me a magician if you must. Your wallets will also thank me, for now, I've given you all, dear readers, the tools to create something from nothings. Peace.
