currently crushing, sam edelman chain sandalsI wore this outfit yesterday morning to grab coffee with my boyfriend and check on the new house and I realized that it was a combo of all my favorite basic pieces,  some old and some new.  It’s staples like this that end up getting worn again and again – making them great investment pieces.  I usually buy reasonably priced basics and save up for statement-making investments and these items are no exception as they’re not all that flashy ( except the sandals get tons of attention)…

I think I could wear these Summer basics year-round here in LA and never get tired of styling them in different ways.  What are some of your tried-and-true Summer basics?
