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!

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 have been loving the versatility and that you really can pull them off for day--and night!. I spent my Saturday out watching people watch football and this was the perfect comfy/casual weekend look kicked up a notch. If you don't have liquid leggings in your closet yet, get on it. 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!
