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!

Another day, another midi dress. By now, you can probably tell I’m very into this style lately. No shame. There’s just something about the effortless fit that makes me love throwing them on. I feel classic, feminine and chic in an instant and you don’t have to worry about showing anything off when you bend over? Win, win, win. These are perfect for running around town. And a classic striped midi dress? Even better.

I honestly thought this Vici striped midi dress was going to be more of a cotton fabric when I ordered it because I didn't read the description. I didn’t realize until it came that it was more of a slinky, polyester and spandex combination, but I ended up loving that because it’s wrinkle-free, super stretchy and perfectly swingy. This would be a great piece for travel!

I tossed it on with a denim jacket for a cooler evening but still kept it dressy with slide heels. Again, I love how you could also wear this with sandals or even sneakers for a casually cool vibe. For me, I think the key to midi dresses is having something that nips in at some part of your body and this does a great job of flattering the waist. I'm 5'6" and the length is great with both flats and heels. 

Thank you always for reading!

One of my all time combinations (besides denim and lace) is leather and lace. I'm a big fan of mixing styles, and feminine and edgy are two of my all time favorites together. Liquid leather leggings and a top with romantic details was one of my go-to's, especially throughout the cooler months, and I love throwing on a faux leather jacket over a pretty blouse, but I don't think I've ever had a piece that did the mixing FOR me. Until now! When I saw this faux leather and lace cami from Jewel Be Mine I was instantly intrigued. I love the edginess of the leather with just a touch of lace and as weird as this sounds, I really think it might be one of those classic wardrobe staple pieces. I initially thought it would be a fun piece to have for a night out, but I was determined to make it work for day, as well. And you know what? It really did work. I knew a denim jacket would instantly tone down the sexiness it gives off, but a simple cardi could do the same. Paired with white skinnies (or even a fun printed pencil skirt) it was perfect for a day of window browsing and wine tasting. It didn't hurt that there happened to be a motorcycle convention and my leather fit in quite nicely. But really--I'm excited to get some wear out of this one!

I also snagged this studded deco necklace (below) from Jewel Be Mine. They have some really fun pieces at affordable prices, and again--a good mix of edgy. classic, feminine, glam. Their clothing is similar with somewhat of a classic "California" vibe and touches of glam and edge. At seriously great prices! My top is only $39!

I'm a big fan of neutrals and pastels all year round, but especially during the winter months. There's something so crisp and clean about about a little winter white, grey, or even pastel pink. These Jbrand skinnies are a soft pink that get a lot of spring and summer wear, but I am loving the lighter colors for fall and winter, too. A denim jacket, neutral booties, and a pop of oxblood take this springy look into winter!
