— Never underestimate the value of having a great selection of go-to basics. I absolutely love a good quality basic tee. Whether it’s solids, stripes, long sleeves, or short sleeves, I have a good collection of tees that can be thrown on with a pair of jeans, or dressed up with a statement necklace and some heels. One of the best places in Steamboat to find these is at Embellishments, in the back of Steamboat Art Company. They carry a wide array of styles, many of which are so buttery soft, you just can’t help but fall in love.

I grabbed this navy blue one as soon as I walked in the store. I love that I could wear this with leggings around the house or with boyfriend jeans, great accessories and heels, and it would instantly turn into a totally different look.

This brown sweatshirt dress is just awesome. It’s perfectly suited for my typical day working from home and running errands. And this striped sweater is so adorable! It’s actually made to look like there’s a blouse under it, which I love.

Lastly, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and Embellishments has a great selection of dresses right now. Danielle grabbed this polka dot one, and I’m so glad she did! I could see this worn in the summer with black wedges, but the hint of floral pattern mixed in with the polka dots makes it just says, “date night.”

If you haven’t to Embellishments in a while, stop in the next time you’re downtown. Of course Steamboat Art Company is well known for the jewelry and home decor that they sell (I’ve wanted one of those stars for years!), but every time I check out the clothing at Embellishments, I always find things I love!
