HK Hit List 2: Beyond Basics

Happy weekend, my friends! Thank you so much for all your well wishes and I'm feeling a lot better than I was a few weeks ago. Thank goodness because I'm flying to Hong Kong next week.

I have a lot of trendy things in my closet, and I think it's about time I stock up on some basics. Well, not totally plain stuff but classics like tees, hoodies and shift dresses, kicked up a notch.

I have lots of tees but I'm looking for more deconstructed ones with slightly different shapes.

Below: Rag and Bone Wide Striped Tee and Three Dots Scoop Neck Tee.
I don't wear much red but the gorgeous back on this classic shift dress might change my mind.

This grey hoodie by L.A.M.B mixes it up with a draped back.

As for accessories? I'd keep it nice and small with little grey oxfords and a teeny red bag.

Below: Rag and Bone Oxfords and Rebecca Minkoff Mini Bag.
Check back next week for my third installment of HK Hit List!

Mmm red, gray, and white--I love the simple yet sophisticated colour palette of your selections!

Some great choices there Liv!

I always forget about the basics and end up with a closet full of mismatched items that don't seem to work together. Thanks for reminding me of what's important! :)

P.S. Yes on that gorgeous hoodie! I'm a sucker for hoodies though...
