Valentine's Basics

 
Tim wears: Mens stripe pocket T-shirt c/o Ropa
 
I'm wearing: Womens Essential Stripe Singlet c/o Ropa
Essential carry bag: c/o Ropa
Denim cutoffs: Tobi
Wedge sneakers: Adidas
 
Have you guys ever felt that even with an increasing paycheck and an expanding wardrobe you still struggle to find something to wear day-to-day? I get that sometimes and only recently I realised maybe it's because I'm spending too much money on unique garments, and not enough of an investment into basic pieces! It's the basic tees and singlets in versatile, simple colours, that form the basis of layering with other pieces to create a no-brainer outfit you can take anywhere.
 
Ropa are an Australian-based brand all about providing affordable wardrobe essentials, and living life less complicated. Due to Ropa's unique minimal overheads, unlike other stores the pricing is close to wholesale prices. With this striped singlet I found it so easy to pair it with denim shorts, comfy sneakers and a leather white cap to bat off the hot sun. Plus even during the cooler season I can wear it underneath layers of knits and jackets.
 
You can never have enough basics especially in different colours and styles and cuts. With Valentine's Day approaching fast, these basics from Ropa would make perfect gifts that are practical, comfy and versatile so you'll have plenty of opportunity to see your loved ones wearing your presents on a regular basis :)

  19. I agree basics are so essential to a wardrobe, I often buy pieces that are not classic enough so I'm trying to improve on picking classic investment pieces instead. You look great, love this super cute outfit!

  28. I have a ridiculous amount of love for how you're wearing matching striped tops, yet in very different styles. The halterneck-style of your top is so on point; you look amazing :)
