Outfit Post: Simply Inspired

Why does Monday always come so quickly. Every Friday I make big plans for all the things I’m going to accomplish and then Sunday afternoon rolls around and I’ve checked little to nothing off the list.

I’m heading out of town tomorrow evening so I’m trying to up my productivity (at work and home) today so I can leave without being totally stressed out. This outfit was worn on a decidedly less stressful day, a weekend one where you can get away with wandering.

Earlier this year, I did a month long series of outfit {pin}spirations, putting my closet’s spin on looks I love. Since I’ve been in a bit of a fashion funk, I’ve decided to try and spark the challenge up again.

If I could, I would copy everyone of Julie’s {Sincerely Jules} looks but I lack the slim build, budget and jet setter lifestyle to pull most of them off. Every once in a while she’s rocking something that I can translate and when I added these blue loafers to my closet, I knew I had to try my hand at this look. (p.s. – bummed I can’t find the original post – if anyone can find it, let me know!)

I took a little liberty and added the jacket to combat the fall chill but otherwise tried my best to channel her simple look.

Shopping + Inspiration: The Perfect White T-Shirt

One thing I am constantly on the hunt for is a great white t-shirt. Plain, I know, but so versatile, so effortless,  so simple and great. They go with everything. Prints, plain jeans (my favorite look), skirts, shorts, trousers. It’s your closet’s swiss army knife.

When you find a great white t-shirt, my advice would be to buy at least two of them. You know those suckers are just magnets for stains and I inevitably get so bummed when my favorite tee gets a drop of makeup, ketchup or any other deadly stain on it.

One of my favorite white shirts has moved from its top priority spot to the work-out tees drawer since it’s started to look a little dingy and old. Now begins the quest for my next great t-shirt.

Obviously it’s not too hard to pull of the white t-shirt look when you’re one of these beauties. But if you just search white t-shirt on pinterest, you’ll find tons of everyday inspiration along with some famous faces mixed in. I’m narrowing down my options on which tee will take the coveted top spot on my stack of shirt but there’s a strict criteria to make it. It’s gotta be v-neck, a little slouchy but not too sloppy, thin but not shear and most importantly, soft. Here’s what I’m choosing between.

Outfit Post: Green Jeans

I’ve got to start out today’s post with a big giant H A P P Y  B I R T H D A Y to Lex What Wear and a big congrats to Alex, my best blogging gal. If you haven’t ever checked out her site, today’s a great day to stop by. I’m so proud of Alex for starting the site and then following her dreams to New York (follow her on instagram to check out some of her envy-enducing antics).

Today’s post is kind of a throw back to what I was doing earlier this year when I looked for outfits to recreate (read: copy). I saw this look from Frankie Hearts Fashion and knew it needed to go on my “copy soon” list. I opted for a white t-shirt instead of gray and Superga’s instead of Converse (mostly because Converse make my feet look like giant water skis). Basically this is just a colorful spin on jeans and a t-shirt.

Oh and please pardon the wrinkly knees. Love these jeans but they always end up doing that. What’s your favorite colored denim to rock or do you just stick to basic blue?
