Keeping It Simple







Blazer: Custom, similar
Dress: Forever 21, almost identical here and here
Purse: Coach, sold out
Necklace: BaubleBar, sold out
Earrings: BaubleBar
Shoes: Zara, similar

Happy Friday!  I'm looking forward to checking out the friends and family sales at Ann Taylor (code: Friends40 for 40% off) and Gap this weekend and attempting to clean out my closet to see what I really need (not want) for fall.  

Do you have those outfits which are your go-to outfits that have the ability to transform how you feel and make you feel instantly put together and more confident?  For me, sometimes it is the simple outfits that make me feel the best.  Bright colors make me feel happy so the color of this dress is perfect when I need a little pick me up and we know how obsessed I am with this white blazer (seen here and here , you get the idea...).  With a great pair of heels, this has become my outfit when I oversleep or just can't figure out what to wear. Now you know the truth of my morning if you see me in this outfit!

What is your go-to outfit to feel instantly pulled together?

Have a great weekend!

  13. That blue is SO beautiful and I love the details on that custom blazer! So cool! I also love those Zara sandals. I've seen nude strappy sandals like that but I love how those have a stacked heel. So much more comfortable!

  18. Simple can always be the best way to go. I have to say, with such a powerful cobalt blue color, this look is anything but simple. The fit is great on you. Perfect cut around the arm & shoulder and perfectly nipped at the waist. Can't get much better with the tailoring on this one. Happy I stumbled upon your blog.
