An Easy Go-To Outfit Formula for Spring and Summer

An Easy Go-To Outfit Formula for Spring and Summer

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.

’Tis the season for holiday parties and if you’re anything like me—you almost never know what to wear. 😂I typically rely on some combination of jeans + a pretty blouse and if you’re a jeans gal, as well, that really never fails. 

Try giving your holiday look a fresh update this year with bright winter white in sheer lace. This Free People bodysuit is the prettiest combination of classic and feminine and just begs to be dressed up with a little holiday sparkle. For something a bit more subdued and edgy, it also comes in black!

I tucked it into my go-to Levi’s 501 jeans but this pairs perfectly with any of your favorite bottoms from denim to dress pants and mini skirts. Hello, cute New Year’s look with a sequin mini. 😍I love how it has a bit of natural looseness at the waist so it gives off that effortless tuck perfectly—without the work! It also has snaps and a thong so it’s seamless and doesn’t disrupt your, ahem, bathroom trips.

For an indoor party (or California winter temps), these Madewell Harper Mules are so perfect. Comfy, easy-to-wear and chic as can be.

Top off your look with festive faux fur—the faux part is most important. I love this one by BlankNYC and it comes in several great colors for the season. It honestly elevates any look in an instant but really looks great dressed up or down. For reference, I’m in the size x-small. 

Of course, you can’t go wrong with velvet or sequins and this little & Other Stories bag is sheer holiday perfection. The perfect arm candy to make a statement. 

I hope you’re all having a great holiday season and, as always, thank you so much for reading!

UPDATE with Black Friday Sale Info:

Free People Sweater - 30% off HERE, 30% off + additional 25% off with code SCORE HERE

Levi’s 501 Jeans - 40% with code INDIGO

Rebecca Minkoff Bag - Currently on sale + an additional 25% off with code THX 25

Slingback Flats - Part of the Buy More, Save More sale; up to 25% off at Shopbop

I found one of the softest sweaters of the season and it’s this Free People Break Away pullover. I think having a classic grey sweater in your collection is a must—there’s just something effortless about them—but this sweater does also come in a few more fall-ready tones like mustard, olive and a dark, pinky burgundy color that would be great for holiday festivities.

I’ve worn this sweater with my go-to Levi’s 501 jeans shown here, tucked into skirts paired with boots and tossed on over my faux leather Spanx. It’s a really great, versatile piece and I love the mock neck. It does run a little oversized (as most Free People pieces do), but I think it just lends to the lived-in, effortless, cozy look. It also tucks well but looks great left undone, as well.

Whenever I need a quick outfit for on-the-go days, I reach for an outfit combination like this one but now that it’s finally cooling down, I’ll be swapping my flats out for booties!

FYI, this sweater is currently 30% off at select retailers! Check the first two links below. I’m wearing an xs.

As always, thank you for reading!

I fully believe everyone needs a teddy coat in their collection. They’re definitely a trendy style for the season but it’s also a style you’ll want to pull out each season when the weather changes. Since I snagged a couple low-end styles to test the trend last year, this year I decided to splurge a little on something a bit more high-quality and classic. Enter this perfect Madewell Sherpa Jacket

I absolutely love the silhouette of this one. It’s not overly oversized or too slouchy like some I’ve seen and actually has a bit of structure which, to me, helps it feel a bit more classic. I also love the golden brown tone that adds a rich fall hue to any outfit combination. It’s super soft and the inside is lined with silky fabric. This is truly something I’ve been reaching for morning and night to take the dogs out or just run outside. I even throw it on for extra warmth at my very casual office. It’s just a great casual layer for fall and winter and something you can reach for daily. 

I can see this teddy coat looking cute with any color denim (like black for an edgy look) and even a cute and comfy skirt + over the knee boot combo this season. For sizing reference, I’m generally an xs or small and went with the size small.

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Comfy fall style that’s also cute? Yes, please. Sweatshirts you can live in are always a must-have for every season and it’s a total treasure finding styles that are just as pretty for dressing up as they are for lounging at home. I grabbed this Anthropolgie Boucle Sweatshirt to kick off the fall season and it’s officially become my favorite thing. And it’s definitely not your average sweatshirt!

It’s a boucle fabric which is French for “buckled tweed.” Basically, it means it’s textured yet soft and it gives this slouchy sweatshirt style some structure. I love 100% cotton basics that are really not so basic. 💯

The $98 price point is definitely at the top of my typical budget for a sweatshirt but this is also not your typical sweatshirt. I can see throwing this on with cute jogger pants and sneakers, wearing it with denim in any color, dressing it up for the holidays with a bit of holiday sparkle or tucking into sweet little skirts and pairing with over-the-knee boots. 

I also want to quickly point out this Treasure & Bond panama hat which has become an instant favorite. Normally, I find it tricky finding a fall hat that fits me and stays on comfortably plus feels flattering. I think I have a high forehead, so maybe that’s part of it but I absolutely love this one. It’s adjustable so you can get your perfect fit and the taupe tone goes well with everything plus adds a casual-cool, fall-ready vibe. I will definitely be pulling this one out through winter. It’s a great price at just $39!

As always, thank you for reading!

By now it should be no secret that I’m a big fan of Levi’s. I wear a pair of Levi’s jeans almost every single day and if I could only choose one denim brand to wear for the rest of my life—Levi’s would be it, hands down. Which is why I am so beyond excited to partner with Levi’s for this post!

As someone with extremely picky denim needs (high rise, comfortable, nip in at the waist, room for the bum), Levi’s has become my go-to for flattering, effortless fits—that don’t break the bank. They have everything from 100% cotton, true-denim fit and feel to stretchy, skinny, straight and everything in between. And so many of them are under $100. 💯Levi’s are truly the jeans you will reach for, over-wear, live in. 🙌🏼

Most days you’ll find me in skinny jeans but I personally love the relaxed look of straighter, boyfriend styles. What I don’t like about boyfriend jeans? Feeling frumpy. But does anyone?? Enter my dream denim from Levi’s: the 501 and Wedgie Fit

You’ve seen me in my Levi’s 501 jeans countless times and today I’m wearing these High-Waisted Levi’s Wedgie Fit Jeans. These two styles are pure gold. They’re technically a skinny silhouette (which I love), yet somehow give you that perfectly relaxed, lived-in feel. You know the jeans you can throw on with a tee and also dress up with heels and a blazer and feel just as chic both ways? Yea, these are them. I’m wearing the ‘Higher Love’ wash here but my other favorite is the 501 jeans in ‘Can’t Touch This.’ I am typically in-between sizes (25 & 26) and wear a 26 in both of these. I notice the 100% cotton styles like these do bag out slightly with wear but sizing up (especially if you’re already in between sizes) still works well, otherwise they can be too tight in the thighs and rear. I get asked about Levi’s sizing quite frequently, so I wanted to outline the sizes I wear in my favorite styles below.

My Levi’s Sizing

Levi’s Wedgie: size 26; no stretch

Levi’s 501: size 26; no stretch

Levi’s 721 (99% Cotton): size 25; low stretch

Levi’s 721 (85 - 95% Cotton): size 26; high stretch

Levi’s Mile High Skinny: size 25; low stretch

I love the slightly darker, true-blue wash on these wedgie jeans which will be perfect for the fall season. I paired them with this adorable Levi’s ruffle sleeve top and threw on a shearling lined denim jacket for a little denim on denim action. This is the original sherpa trucker jacket in ‘Extremely Lovable’ and it has a really cool vibe that’s still classic. I can see pairing this with black or colored denim, over an all-black look for an edgy vibe, even over fall dresses. It’s warm but not overly bulky and will be great for layering this season. I’m in an xs but would suggest sizing UP if you plan to wear over sweaters.

As always, thank you for reading!

One of my most-worn items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been this Treasure & Bond duster cardigan—hands down. 🙌🏼I love having easy, effortless styles I can throw on to feel chic and put together in an instant and I've always said a duster cardigan is the epitome of that. I love the casual-chic vibe of a grey heather tone but you really can't go wrong with black, tan, white—everything.

This one is a one-size-fits-all style and on my 5'6" frame it's a great length to wear with jeans, shorts and even dresses. I've paired this with a white slip dress to give it a casual vibe, it looks great with a black t-shirt dress and is the easiest thing to throw on over your favorite white tank or tee. Here, I layered a lace camisole underneath for a feminine touch and love how the cardigan drapes so effortlessly. This was the perfect look for a day filled with lunch and errands and I love how the cami dresses up your look over a plain white tee. Add sneakers for an extra casual vibe or booties to take the look into fall. 

This duster cardigan has truly been the first thing I reach for when I wake up to take the dogs out, when I have my morning coffee on the patio (or couch) and I love it for work when you're in a/c. There's just something about a duster cardigan that's effortless and easy and will surely be a must for your fall wardrobe. 

A note on this cardigan: It does have wool in it, so it has a slight scratch when you first put it on but I noticed it softened up perfectly and does not feel itchy. I linked to this exact style plus a few more favorites below.

As always, thank you for reading!
