Usually, I’m sharing an outfit with a white top and I’m sure you all know that’s my go-to outfit by now. But when I want an easy way to mix things up, I swap out my light wash jeans for black or white denim. I recently pulled out these white Everlane high rise skinny jeans I got last year and they’re a great effortless style for the season. I sized up in them last year and they’re an ever-so-slightly slightly relaxed fit on me. If you want them skinnier, I would definitely stick to your normal size, as they do bag out slightly. FYI, I’m 5’6” and have the ankle length and am wearing a size 26. They’re also a great price at $68!

With white denim on the bottom, the options on top are truly endless. Add white or cream for a flattering tone on tone look, have fun with pops of color and print or, if you’re like me—stick to your favorite neutrals. I added a grey long sleeve knit top for a cooler day but I love this outfit with a black or grey tee, as well. There’s something about adding a blue denim jacket on top that just completes the look, truly making you feel instantly put together. Whether you actually wear it over your shoulders or tie it around your waist, it’s the perfect addition. This one is from H&M and only $34.99. I love the slight crop and it has some stretch to it.

I slid on these white Sam Edelman slide loafers and they’re another style that adds a chic feel to any outfit. I kept things effortless with this Leatherology bag that’s actually a mini belt bag! You can wear it at your waist or slung over the shoulder as I did here. This is an amazing option for travel!

As always, thank you so much of reading and enjoy your week!

You know those outfits you throw on and feel instantly good, instantly like yourself? Every woman has one. Your go-to outfit formula. It can be anything from your favorite comfy dress, a great blazer or those jeans that fit just right. For me, it’s always some version of jeans and a white tee. My effortless outfit combination—always.

To start, these Levi’s 501 jeans are “mom jeans” that are actually flattering. 👏🏼High waisted, true denim feel, light wash. These are the lived-in, relaxed jeans you’ll love and there’s something about the silhouette that just makes any outfit feel instantly casual-chic. I think the distressing on these combined with the light wash lends to the perfectly casual feel. There’s something about this was that just screams effortless and I always reach for light over dark when I want that vibe. They truly pair so perfectly with everything from flats to sandals to sneakers to heels. I wear these for everything from weekend to dog walks to date night.

For an instant spring twist, this straw hat has been my go-to. 🙌🏼It’s a great price to test the straw hat trend and I’ve already completely over-worn it since I got it. It’s even been to Mexico and back! It’s a great vacation hat and works just as beautifully with your casual spring looks. I just love how it instantly makes an outfit feel put together and, to be honest, I’ve already had to try to stop myself from wearing it so much—it’s that good!

For something a bit polished, I swapped out a basic white tee for this sheer sleeve style by Velvet by Graham & Spencer. I love the airy feel and how it can so easily transition into something dressy but you could just as easily try this look with a white button-down or pretty white top for the season—or even your basic tee! That’s the beauty of style—wear what you feel good in and you’ll always feel great.

I’ve worn this outfit a million times over and tend to gravitate towards flats and slides for daily wear but there’s no denying the power of a great heel. For me, a “great heel” always means a low one and the 2” on these Everlane block heel sandals is perfection. These are incredibly comfortable and have such a wonderful “barely there” feel. Flattering on the foot with plenty of support and wearability—what’s not to love?

What’s your go-to outfit formula? As always, thank you so much for reading!

If you’ve followed along with my blog and Instagram for a while, you probably know I don’t wear heels very often. Though, let’s be real, of course I love the lift and length they give. What woman wouldn’t? But because heels are generally not functional for my lifestyle, my idea of the perfect heel is one that’s low, practical for both day to night, and—most importantly— comfortable! 

You could call me a bit of a low-heeled sandal connoisseur and I was so happy to find this Roxanne Heel by LifeStride from Zappos that checks every single thing on my must-have list: low heel (i.e. under 2 inches 🙌🏼), strappy style (love the double strap) and comfort above all else. LifeStride shoes are on-trend, easy to wear, perfect for 24/7 dressing and affordable. ✔️✔️✔️✔️

They’re all about creating comfortable footwear for every aspect of life, whether that’s work, weekend or everything in between and these sandals truly nail it. They’re cushioned with memory foam for all-day comfort (major yes!) and they’re the effortless footwear staple to take you through the season. I had absolutely no break-in period required and I love how the strappy silhouette can do double duty from dressy to casual, whether paired with dresses and jumpsuits for a spring wedding or denim for date night. Did I mention this pair is only $59.94? That’s an incredible amount of wearability for the price.

I also love the light taupe tone, or "Putty Lotus”, of this pair because it’s a color most people might be missing in their collection. I know I was! These do also come in black but a light, neutral tone always helps create added length down the leg line, which is always my personal preference. Basically, the closer the color to your skin tone—the more streamlined the look! These look great with blue jeans and white denim as worn here for a spring-casual ensemble or throw them on with a little white dress or simple black t-shirt dress all summer long. How cute would this spring look be for a casual Easter brunch?

These would even be great for a casual office paired with cropped dress pants and a chic blazer in the summer months, so if you’re looking for stylish and comfy shoes for work, LifeStride’s Roxanne heel has you covered!

Also, I have to mention I absolutely love shopping at Zappos because they have incredible customer service, offer free expedited shipping and you can often find pieces you love for less. It’s the first place I look when I need last-minute items for a trip or special event because I know I’ll find something great that comes fast and doesn’t break the bank.

As always, thank you so much for reading!

My Trunk Club Vacation Favorites

My Trunk Club Vacation Favorites | www.girlmeetsgold.com

I shared a bit of my recent Trunk Club Trunk in my Instagram Stories over the weekend and I love how you guys are always so intrigued. You may remember earlier this year I vowed to shop less and buy with more intention and my Trunks have definitely helped with this. I know, I know—how is a box full of clothes helping you shop less, exactly? Well, to start, I have them set up to come every two months and concentrate on not shopping in between those months. I focus on asking my Stylist for classic, wardrobe staples and find that when I have to “check out” by providing feedback for each item, it helps me really pinpoint if I actually do need an item—or if I don’t. More about Trunk Club in THIS POST but if you’re interested in getting your own Trunk, you can use this link to be set up with my Stylist, Lauren. She’s amazing.

Anyway, back to this month’s Trunk and my vacation favorites! I asked Lauren to focus on vacation staples since we’re heading to Mexico next week and she sent a great mix of classic, effortless pieces and a few items that pushed me with just the right amount “trend.” I requested easy-breezy items, summer whites, sandals, etc and Lauren included just that. Without further ado, here are my Trunk Club Vacation Favorites…

My Trunk Club Vacation Favorites | www.girlmeetsgold.com


Always a fan of easy-breezy-effortless, this BP. linen blend midi dress is the perfect lbd for the season. It’s lightweight and airy and I love the button-front feature for a little something special. If in between sizes, I would say go down a size if you want it more fitted, or go with your usual size if you want it to be a little more relaxed. I’m usually a US 0/2 and have the xs and almost could have even done the xxs if I wanted it to be slightly fitted. Personally, I like how it’s relaxed just enough. For sizing/length reference, I’m 5’6”.

I should also say now—I am wearing my entire trunk with this straw hat because I immediately pulled it off, put it on and basically never took it off. It’s good and under $50. More accurately, it’s $44 and also comes in the prettiest lilac tone.

I’m also wearing these Soludos sandals in the majority of these outfits. I actually bought these last year and laughed when I saw them in my Trunk because Lauren totally knows my style! Personally, I think they’re adorable but I did return them because they’re not the most comfortable. My absolute favorite, no-break-in-required sandals is this pair from Bella Vita and it’s hard to top them. Available in additional colors here!

My Trunk Club Vacation Favorites | www.girlmeetsgold.com

Next up was this pair of white linen pants and these were another easy yes. I just love how they look and feel effortless and breezy and the styling options are endless. Wear them by the pool with a one-piece or bikini, dress them up with a crop top and wedges for vacation cocktails or throw them on with a white tee and slide sandals paired with a denim jacket for something a little more everyday-appropriate.

These come in a ton of colors (navy, oatmeal, black and striped) but I love the bright white. The coverage is great and they’re just ever-so-slightly see through—nude underwear and you’re good!

I have these in an xs.

Always a fan of midi skirts, this Leith front-button midi skirt in ‘peach clay’ got me just enough outside my neutral comfort zone. This does have a matching top but I love how a white tee keeps the look a bit more simple and effortless. Midi skirts instantly make me feel more feminine and I could live in them during the warmer months. Perfect for date night and summer days. How sweet is the button detail and flutter hem? I have this in an xs.

My Trunk Club Vacation Favorites | www.girlmeetsgold.com

Full disclosure, I didn’t end up keeping this Billabong X Sincerely Jules Twist Flirt Jumpsuit because it was a bit too small—sadly, it wouldn’t zip!—but so many of you loved it, I had to share. This print screams tropical vacation and would be such a fun piece for a beach trip. I would take a top version of this in a heartbeat and pair it with white or blue cutoff shorts—or my white linen pants! If you’re planning to snag this one—definitely size up! For reference, I’m wearing the xs and would have needed a small.

Lastly, these were pieces I almost kept. These navy paperbag waist knit shorts were so, so comfortable and I love the style. They’re also a steal at just $39. I personally was just trying to minimize what I kept and couldn’t justify them because I already have something similar in my closet. I love them with this striped Madewell tee though for a nautical-inspired vacation look.

The J.Crew eyelet midi wrap dress was another gorgeous and feminine silhouette but I have another similar white midi dress in my collection, so I passed. I felt a little bit “Southern Belle” in this dress and can see it looking so sweet for a trip to Charleston or somewhere similar. It could also be great for a spring or summer bridal shower.

An Affordable Vacation Look with Wide Leg Crop Pants

An Affordable Vacation Look with Wide Leg Crop Pants | www.girlmeetsgold.com

I found the effortless outfit everyone will want to be living in for both vacation and all summer long. 🙌🏼Would you believe me if I told you these pants are $13.88, my tee is $6 and this entire look (shoes included) is under $57 with tax and free shipping?? Well, it’s true!

This look is head to toe Walmart from their new spring shop! Take a peek into both the bold stripe and cool cotton sections and you’ll find tons of affordable, spring-ready styles. One of my favorite combinations for the season is anything effortless and this outfit is the epitome of casual comfort.

Let’s start with the pants. I promise, promise, promise these are a must-have. I don’t use the word “need” very lightly but these Derek Heart Wide Leg Crop Pants are truly an essential. Comfy, effortless, flattering, have pockets—they’re basically a dream for both vacation and the spring through summer season. Sometimes I feel wide leg styles can be tricky but the cut of this pair is ultra-flattering. I adore the button fly and how they almost mimic a midi skirt effect with a subtle flare. And for $13.88, I am truly blown away with both quality and fit. For sizing reference if it’s helpful, I’m in a small and wear a 25/26 in denim.

For an easy outfit to take on vacation, simply pull them on with a white tee. I added a knot to give this one by Time and Tru a bit of extra shape and added interest. These are the details that instantly make you feel put together! You could easily add a pair of slide sandals (like these) but I love the way block heel sandals dress the look up just enough. These shoes are beyond comfortable and the price is insane—just $32! I highly suggest snagging this pair!
