NOT SO BASIC

Hey ladieshappy holidays! 

Gosh can't believe that's the first time I'm saying that here. December has legit been like running on a treadmill and lifting weights, at the same time! Hectic to say the least. I'll have a more thorough update for you all once I can reveal what has been keeping me extra busy these days but for now let's chat about the pieces I'm styling here. 

I'm a huge believer in comfort + function when it comes to all things sartorial. I mean, heels aside, you'll probably never catch me in something that takes away my peace of mind. Mainly because a girl likes to eat, ok? That's why when the Hong Kong-based brand Grana approached me to send me a few things, it was a no brainer. 

Grana offers luxury basics at affordable prices, amongst other things. They believe quality clothes should be accessible to all and that fabrics are the heart of any garment.


Keep on scrolling to see how I styled a casual 'everyday' look and a festive 'fit featuring
my new favorite basics!


Funny that I'd share this look on the coldest day of the winter so far, right? Worry not, no humans were harmed in the shooting of this outfit. I've always had a soft spot for a good 'Canadian suit', and by good I mean well balanced. The key is to choose two completely different shades of denim and voila! Particularly loving the color + feel of this Grana Japanese Denim Button Down as it lends itself for an array of outfit possibilities. Fun fact: Denim was actually born in France and popularized in America but in today's day and age, Japan is where the best denim is made!

This look is a perfect example of how I take basics to the next level with a little help from accessories. Take away the shimmery blazer, the statement earrings and the piano clutch and you have yourself an outfit that lends itself to the office or small gatherings with friends. Add the aforementioned and you're ready to par-tay! You guys will probably see this Mongolian cashmere turtle neck tons this season as it is the softest thing known to mankind!

P.S: their clothing does run a bit loose so make sure you order a size down/your size!
