A Pop of Red

by Christie Nowels

There's nothing better than waking up and throwing on a simple t-shirt and jeans to complete your morning look. When I was in college, my go-to outfit was my favorite sorority tank, Victoria Secret leggings, and Nike kicks. Upon moving to London, I realized quickly that your 'gym look' shouldn't always be your 'class look'... and that's how my simple morning routine began. The simple white tee is a staple for everyone's closet, but don't worry about breaking the piggy bank for this one! I opt for places like Forever 21, H&M, and Gap for my basic t-shirts both long and short. They come in a zillion colors for your liking so don't be afraid to be bold either!

The fun part of dressing simple is you can dress up your outfit with a bright handbag or coat. Since I'm originally from Florida, I have *slowly* been building my coat game. I haven't been too adventurous with colours/textures except for a Zara faux fur and Matthew Williamson baby blue peacoat I got at a sample sale. I've always been a bag girl so instead, I completed this look with my mom's vintage Louis Vuitton red handbag that she actually bought at Harrods during our first trip to London when I was 10 years old... I like to say this baby came home ;)
