Basic is the Way to Go

Today I come to you somewhat unprepared.  I've failed to photograph my outfits lately, as they were rather uninteresting.  However, yesterday I was was finally inspired to put a new outfit together and it was pouring rain all day long so I failed to document it with photos.  Hopefully I'll have time to recreate the look this weekend!

So today I bring you photos I took last month and never got around to posting.

dress: Target (similar) | jean jacket: American Eagle | necklace: American Eagle

I love a black cotton dress.  Sometimes just wearing a basic is the way to go.  Wouldn't you agree?

Also, Cup of Tea's Facebook page is so close to hitting 100 likes!  So if you're feeling helpful, come on over and like my page! :)

Hope everyone is having a great week!
