Earlier this week G and I took a mini trip to Santa Barbara. Our flight left super early in the morning and we spent the day checking out the pier and walking down State Street. Obviously I wanted to look cute for our trip but I really wanted to be comfortable for the flight and our day of walking. Luckily, New Chic recently sent me some updated staples that fit the bill perfectly.
I love adding “classics with a twist” to my wardrobe and these pieces are great. The first item I picked out was this black and white striped tee. I’m a sucker for anything with stripes and I love how this feels timeless but still has some interesting details to it.
This top is super comfy and I love the asymmetrical cutout back. It’s a fun detail that makes this top so much more interesting than your average striped tee. I’ve been wearing this pretty much nonstop since I received it.
I also picked out this gray embellished cardigan. I get cold really easily so I’m always stocking up on light sweaters that I can throw in my bag just in case it gets a little chilly. I like the pearl and crystal details on this cardigan and it’s actually really thick and warm- much warmer than I was expecting it to be. It was perfect for keeping me warm on the pier with the cool ocean breezes.
The last item I got was this fun statement necklace. I love statement necklaces but they can be so expensive for an item that isn’t all that versatile. I love the bright pink jewels mixed with the crystals and black cord on this necklace and the price is great! My necklace did come in pieces (the rings that hold it together were loose so the pieces came apart) but I was able to fix it very easily with a pair of pliers. Other than that little mishap, I’m really happy with the pieces I received from New Chic. Shipping did take a few weeks (and my necklace had to be shipped twice before I received it) but the quality was much better than I was expecting and the prices are so low! These updated staples were perfect for our trip and they were all so fun to wear.
