I recently talked about feeling uninspired with my wardrobe. When that happens, I often turn back to basics to get myself dressed and out the door. In this case, it would be what Bridgette Raes calls novelty basics. A novelty item like this lace ivory top that functions like a basic ivory or white top would. It can be worn many ways. See how I wore this top HERE, HERE, and HERE.  I paired it with black pants and another novelty basic item- this grey pinstripe blazer to create an office outfit.  You could go with a plain grey blazer, but the pinstripes make this a little different. 

Alison at GYPO has released The Big Book of Outfit Formulas. It contains over 300 formulas covering all seasons. I don't have mine yet but I've heard great things about it already. 

Happy Hump Day!
