One of those classic, can’t beat it, outfit combinations has to be a white tee and jeans. It just works! When I’m wanting to wear something classic and comfortable that’s usually what I reach for. In an effort to mix it up just a little bit, I looked for some updated pieces to my favorite classics.
These patchwork jeans from Old Navy are so fun and such a nice switch from my typical skinny jeans. They’re distressed but the floral patchwork detail adds a fun element, that’s perfect for fall. Likewise, instead of a white tee, I paired my jeans with a lace blouse. The detail is feminine and looks good with skirts as well as jeans. I think it could also work underneath a shift dress, when you’re wanting to layer a little bit more.
Do you have an outfit
combination that you typically reach for? It’s fun to think of different ways
to update them. I think next time instead of a t-shirt dress, I’m going to wear a shirt dress. It’s a small change but it makes a difference.
P.S. These photos were taken in New York City on our apartment’s fire escape. I am a little afraid of heights so walking out there with heeled boots scared the heck out of me! Thank you Val for encouraging me to take a risk for these photos! I love when you’re the daredevil to my scardy cat, like when we went on a helicopter ride in Alaska! Scary but worth it!
