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.

So I finally jumped on the liquid/faux leather legging bandwagon a few months ago and they have definitely become my go-to when I want a step up from my typical denim look.

I promise you'll never want take them off and the possibilities are pretty much endless. I love these ones from ASOS. Also, this hat is STILL available at Target for only $16.99, woop!

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!

Now we all know that the LBD (little black dress) is one of those closet staples that every woman should own, but I think another staple that doesn't seem to get as much notoriety, is the little black skirt. Admittedly, I didn't even own a little black skirt (let's call it the LBS) until last year, but I can confidently say that it really is a closet staple. Whether pencil, skater, or even faux leather, a little black skirt is a great base, especially for a chic fall or winter look.

I pulled mine out with plans to dress it up with pretty blouses and sweaters for the holidays, and as I was mixing and matching I fell in love with its versatility. I was planning on a pretty blouse and sparkly jewels, but love the casual look it took on with a soft pullover and cozy sweater vest. I snagged this one from Marshall's last year, but found this one from Forever 21 that's very similar. (And only $10.90!) They both have a velveteen pattern that gives it a luxe look, but the one from Forever is FLORAL! Swoon. 

I got a lot of comments on this vest the last time I wore it and if you don't have luck at Nordstrom Rack, it looks like Kohl's has the same one! Shop the look below for details!

It's officially Fall and while the weather may not know it, I'm still determined to at least dress like it's Fall. I told you I got new ankle boots from Nordstrom Rack this weekend and I couldn't wait to wear them! They are a gorgeous taupey-grey, have a cute little V dip on both sides, crisscross buckles (that I may have just now realized are supposed to crisscross, although I kind of prefer them not crossed anyway) and to top it all off--they have the most perfect heel height that makes them easy to dress up or down. They're really just cool boots, especially paired with distressed denim and a comfy knit for a touch of softness. 

This sweater vest (with pockets!) was also a Nordstrom Rack find. Seriously, run to Nordstrom Rack ASAP. This one is so cozy and has a really great effortless vibe. It's the perfect thing for transitioning into sweater weather, whether paired with a simple tee or layered over a summer dress. It's all about those Fall layers after all and I really love a good neutral layered look.

Oh, floral print. I adore you. I tend to welcome spring with floral and gravitate towards it throughout the summer months, but lately I've been thinking about how I can incorporate it into Fall, as well. Scarves, knits, blazers?? While I wasn't expecting to start the Fall season in shorts, I knew I had to at least give them a Fall spin. I thought this was the perfect look for the transition. Classic woven shorts and a floral knit with neutral (and gold) accessories.

I picked up these Franco Sarto d'orsay flats from Nordstrom Rack over the weekend and I'm so excited to have them for Fall. I've totally fallen in love with d'orsay flats and heels (so flattering and hello, lengthening!) and I love the classic color of these. Nordstrom Rack had a great selection of boots and booties (and sweaters and jackets and way too many things I had to resist) but I would highly recommend stopping by if you have one near you and are on the hunt for Fall shoes. My sister got the most gorgeous pair of Rebecca Minkoff d'orsay flats (like sister, like sister) and I grabbed a must have pair of ankle boots, as well. :)

Thanks for reading and Happy Fall!
