Whenever I travel to new cities I love to check out stores and boutiques that we don’t have in Michigan. For my birthday last year I spent the week visiting my best friend Nina who currently lives in Los Angeles, while attending UCLA. I made the most of my birthday weekend by shopping at stores like celebrity boutique, Kitson, where I found this Alice & Olivia black metal should tee. On one of my trips to Chicago I found this amazing illusion skirt at Zara. Paired together, the basic elements that make a great work outfit have a lot more personality. Who says that basics are boring?
