It’s true – I change my outfit a lot. I am constantly reviewing products, testing out new trends and I have the other full time job of being a mom! So I get a lot of questions about what I actually end up wearing during the day. There are always a few key factors I consider when picking my outfit: comfort, versatility, and of course, fashionable. I’ve learned a lot over the years about what works best for my body type, what I like and don’t like, and how accessories can really bring an outfit together. I always find it important to keep on hand a few great basics and build the outfit around them. I’ve broken down each component of my outfit to explain why I chose it and offered a lot of other great options to fit your personal style.
I tend to gravitate towards lighter wash denim with a bit of distressing – especially for daytime. Blank NYC makes super comfortable denim and offers the newest silhouettes. These Madis Ripped Jeans have a high waist fit and raw edge detailing at the knees and hem. I find most of the Blank NYC offering to be under the $100 price point.

A basic t-shirt is always a great closet staple, but a t-shirt with a twist (literally) can easily take that pair of denim up a notch. I always look for that something extra in a top to add a little fashion and a little fun to my outfit. This knot sleeve top by Everleigh is the perfect example. This 100% cotton top makes it easy to wash and wear time and time again.

Next up are the shoes – I have become a bit sneaker obsessed. As mentioned before I am constantly on the move and so sneakers are my go to! Dolce Vita offers the perfect mix of sporty and casual sneakers. I love the accents of print or sparkle and again that under $100 price point.

Another thing I’ve learned over the years is that “3rd piece” can really bring an outfit together. Whether it’s a statement scarf or an easy cardigan this is the piece that make the outfit feel more styled. A quick swap for a leather jacket makes this look ready for a night out or try swapping for an on trend shacket for a trip to the park. For this look I’ve chosen the utility jacket – equal parts versatile and stylish. This Free People Jacket is the perfect addition for a cool bus stop morning yet fashionable enough for a zoom meeting.

Finally the accessories – those little bits that can really show off your personal style and your personality. A hint of color or a pop of sparkle can really make the outfit SHINE! A monogram necklace and a crossbody bag complete this look for me.
