If you’d ask me what the ultimate spring shoe is, not from just this spring, but every season – it would be a pair of white chucks. Goes with anything, is a sneaker (because we want to be active and outside in spring) and I can’t believe I didn’t have a pair until now, with my endless love for great basics. Now I do have to watch out sometimes not to confuse basics with essentials, because when I tried to convince someone the other day that leopard trousers were really a great basic anyone should own and he (maybe that was the problem) didn’t agree I realized that there’s definitely a difference between basics and essentials. Basics are items you do really need: the black leather jacket, the black skinny jeans, the white t-shirt, and so on. Essentials can change when your style, trends or even the season changes. Most of all, essentials are personal. Everyone has their own essentials, for me a pair of leopard trousers is an essential, for someone else it might be a red skirt or a pair of sliders (definitely an essential for this summer). You don’t have to own all the basics, nor all the essentials. But I do enjoy owning and wearing them more than just random items I like and than buy, which I don’t do very often anymore.
To make a long story short: here’s what I’m wearing today. The basics: white chucks and an oversized black knit (which to me are also essentials)/ the essentials: leopard trousers.
I know it’s a big of a vague story but that’s what was on my mind today – I hope it makes sense and I’ll do a post on my spring essentials later this week!
But not before I have a big surprise for you guys tomorrow ;)
