The daily standards

#teenvogue // ZARA skort and bag, COS breton, ACNE pistol boots, VINTAGE necklace

I've always found it intriguing what items we deem as 'staples', and I still don't think it's something you can pin down. The whole concept is very personal, subjective if you will. One person may deem a pair of bright blue shorts as more of a statement piece, but I can't help but feel that by classifying slightly louder pieces as 'statement' pieces we immediately limit when and where we can wear them, and thus don't get the full amount of worth from the money we spend on clothes that aren't quite 'simple' enough. In this sense, somehow I think it's wise to not ask yourself 'where and when will I wear this?' when buying an item, simply ask 'will I wear this?' because theoretically you can wear whatever you damn well please at any time and no one really has any say in it other than yourself. Want to wear a ball-gown to Tesco? Why not, it's your body. If that is what you want to deem as a staple piece, is it really someone's prerogative to correct you? I certainly don't think it is. A staple wardrobe is simply a wardrobe full of items that you could wear everyday if you wanted to; nothing more, nothing less.
I obviously preach the above with the instinctive trust that you all realise this does not apply to onesies or crocs, and now mocs since those too have clearly become a thing too.

  27. I totally agree! i think about 90% of my wardrobe would be considered 'statement' pieces by most but stuff it, they are the base to every outfit i make so they are totally my basics too. I wish I could buy Zara in Australia. i want that skort in every colour!

    love outside is colours

  29. Love this outfit, especially the skort!
    I agree with what you mean about staples being something you want to wear; I always manage to end up being slightly over-dressed when I go places (which you wouldn't believe judging from my outfit posts haha)

  30. I love this outfit, one of my favorites of yours! And I agree on your idea of staple pieces: I always read on blogs that one should own a white blouse, blue jeans, a black blazer etc. these are items that I don't even own, because they are too simple for my taste and they just don't fit my style. I'd personally rather buy a cute dress instead of a black blazer and as I almost wear dresses almost every day, I would consider a cute dress as my staple piece. That said, COS really does the best basics, such as the lovely breton you are wearing! :) Well priced quality, timeless items. xx aimee

  44. love this outfit, probably one of my favourite outfits I've seen with the skort trend. I've never heard of 'mocs' (although they sound awful).... am I living under a rock? x

  45. I agree, staples are such an individual thing.

    You look gorgeous, I love the striped top (one of my staples, incidentally), and this skork will forever make my heart sing.

  52. Oh Camilla, I swear you wear like all of my dream outfits. That skirt is SO gorgeous, everything in Zara is at the minute! And haha that's my philosophy towards buying clothes as well, probably explains my lack of money and clothes hangers at all times.
