This outfit is what happens when you invest in good basics.

I banned myself from shopping this November (it went well!), so I worked with what I already have in my wardrobe for office wear and weekend ensembles. I have a good mix of trends and classics in my wardrobe, and most of them have a wear-now, wear-later allure. Which means that  I can find  fresh ways to wear them over and over again, the way I did with this slip-dress-over-a-tee outfit.

The slip-dress-over-shirt trend is a blast from the 90’s. I’ve personally never seen this number outside of music festivals or the F/W 2016 runways. By extent, I guess you could say that I’ve never seen Clueless, too. I’m sorry to disappoint you?

Anyway, I wore a simple, black-and-white combination of said trend. Except for the slip dress—which is my mom’s—everything came from my wardrobe. Guys, nakakatipid ‘tong trend na ‘to! That’s the whole point, really. We all want to maximize our wardrobe.

I took things up a notch with playful details: multi-strap flats, a denim jacket knotted around the waist, and a kitty beanie. I love the kitty beanie the most—I thought it lent my outfit a tiny bit of that je ne sais quoi factor.
