There are three different types of basics in this particular outfit:

1) black and white - doesn't get much more basic then that.
2) crisp white shirt.
3) black birkenstocks.

For some reason, on this particular day, I was just craving basics all around.  Whether it was the cloudy weather, the craziness of life or my lack of creativeness that day, I think the outfit worked, basics and all.

I also got a bit of a chop on the ole' locks.  And I love it!  Such and easy, effortless and chic haircut!
