Life in the city absolutely needs staple pieces. These are the ideas that you fall back to when you realize your original planned outfit is too much and too painful.
I roll out of bed each morning starting at 5am and end back home at 10 or 11pm. Here are some of the essentials I have learned to love and worship:
“Doctor” Level Boots
Doc Martens are known to be one of the comfiest, most long-lasting pair of boots you can own. The Chelsea boot is versatile and the vegan component makes it easier to break in compared to the regular boot. Breaking them in is hell, but worth it in the long-run!
Cotton or Linen Tops
Humidity is something I am still learning to live with here in the city. One minute its cool, the next its pouring and sticky. Having a simple, 100% cotton top can be a lifesaver on those long, packed train rides home after a surprise rainfall. Linen is great for this too.
Big city or small town, black leggings are everyones go-to. The pockets on this Mesh PowerHold Capri just makes things even more convenient for you.

Because changing from wearing flats on the streets to heels in the office doesn’t help you with anything. Especially if you work in retail and not in a nice, little office.
