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!

No matter the season, there’s nothing I love more than throwing on easy staples. While I’m a huge proponent of investing in quality over quantity, sometimes your wardrobe just needs staples that don’t break the bank. Staples you can live in, get dirty in, play with your kids (or dogs) in, workout in—without worrying about wearing them out and spending more to replace them each season.

I know it’s unrealistic to think everyone is able to justify spending $60+ on one shirt and while I know a lot of you appreciate my everyday, “basic” style, some of you do express you’d like to see more affordable options. Today, I’m partnering with Walmart to celebrate fashion for all—at prices everyone can feel good about. Their fresh new spring shop features bold stripes, modern romance and cool cottons but you guys know I’m all about those classic wardrobe staples: my effortless neutrals.

I picked up a few new tees, jeans, an on-trend circle bag—even a chic trench coat and every clothing piece was under $30. Some even under $10!! 🙌🏼Did you know Walmart also offers a designer department where you can shop premium brands from Lord & Taylor? I love how you can truly shop high-low. I snagged these Sam Edelman sandals for just $59.50 to add an elevated look to my basics. They’re perfect for spring through summer events like Easter, Mother’s Day, bridal showers, weddings and more! I’m always a huge fan of finding low-heeled sandals for all of these occasions and these ones are incredibly comfortable. I also just saw a brand new pair on the site and absolutely love the look of THESE and they’re only $32!

Walmart offers free 2-day shipping which is incredibly amazing and something I think more brands should offer. It’s truly a one-stop shop and I’ve also found tons of great home staples at affordable prices. You have to check out the new MoDRN line!

Below I’m outlining my favorite wardrobe staple finds from Walmart, along with everything I’m wearing in this post. I found everything runs pretty true to size. These jeans come in several colors and are SO soft, comfy and flattering. I personally love the distressed version but a dark wash is certainly a closet staple and the “Brownstone” color looks fresh for the season.

As always, thank you so much for reading!
