If I could put all my favorite pieces of the season into one outfit, it would look something like this – ripped jeans, a suede green moto jacket, and a bag with a chain strap.
I usually keep things simple, white, black, grey, denim. But when it comes to accessories, I love to add a pop of color with a colorful bag. And I have a soft spot for pink. I have pink high heels, pink sneakers (just got them and you’ll see them in an upcoming post or my Instagram feed) and pink bags.
These striped shorts have been in heavy rotation for me this summer. I love pairing them with button-up shirts. Here I show you two ways to do just that.
With a full-time job and a kid under 4, I’m always focused on putting together a minimal workweek outfit that is also on-trend. Dressing minimally takes away a lot of the anxiety of piecing together complicated outfits. But I still make sure to look fashionable.
Play up your minimalist wardrobe by layering textures and mixing patterns. Texture adds interest without having to add more pieces to your outfit. I love how the stripes and salt-and-pepper texture of the coat work together in an unexpected way. I’m a big fan of stripes and find them super versatile, and a perfect fit for the blacks, whites and greys in my minimalist closet. So coming up with new ways to wear stripes is always exciting to me.
Can we also talk about transitional shoes? It’s so hard to find shoes for transitional weather. There is definitely a lack of footwear out there that sits between boots and sandals, and works in the rain. Until I found the shoes I’m wearing in this post, I had a very difficult time dressing for rainy days. I either wore flats, which didn’t do much for me in the rain, or boots, which kind of got old after months of wearing boots during the winter anyways. So I’m happy to finally have found casual heels to wear with jeans.
