One Outfit, Two Ways | No. 1

My style is all about fewer, better things. I like to primarily invest in really good pieces that I’m going to wear over and over again until my tailor laughs and says I absolutely won’t fix this again. So each season I pick up only a few inexpensive items to keep my wardrobe fun and trendy. Because I always love good outfit inspiration, I’m sharing one of my favorite outfits two ways.

One of my favorite Summer outfits is a bodysuit and jeans. It’s just such a simple outfit and super easy to style any way you want. This tends to be my standard outfit in warm weather; just add a long sleeve bodysuit and it’s my Fall/Winter outfit.

If you only have one real investment piece in your closet, make it your jeans. Jeans are maybe the hardest item to find that meet all the exact specifications for “good jeans.” If I have exactly the right pair of jeans, they are the only jeans I’ll wear for years. I leave myself enough budget for one really good pair of jeans every year. I don’t need new jeans frequently because I work in a business formal office, so I only wear them on weekends mostly. If you do work in a casual office, it’s still worth it to invest in good jeans the same way I invest in good suits or dresses for my office. If it’s something you wear often, it’s worth having high-quality pieces. One of my favorite brands for high quality denim is AGOLDE.

For my Summer uniform, I like to get the most out of it. So this year I picked up this one-piece swimsuit in white that absolutely works as a bodysuit or a swimsuit. I loved it so much, I ordered it in black as well.

The thing I love so much about this outfit is how easy it is to style for anything. For a more casual style, weekend brunch, BBQs, I style it with these cute, budget-friendly flats that look super chic. I love layering gold necklaces with a casual look and I really love this one that goes with everything. And I always wear my favorite Cuyana Summer hat for everything. It’s great if you have a giant head like me because it comes in a few sizes. If you don’t have a giant head, you don’t realize how big of a deal this is. I’ve had this hat for 2 years now and don’t know what I’d do without it.

For a dressed up look, drinks out, a date, I just throw on an oversized linen blazer and heels for a super simple look. I like a gold statement earring for dressier looks or for work and I think it looks so chic with an elevated basic outfit.

For Summer beauty, I wear my Dior Lip Glow basically 24/7. It’s truly one of the best beauty products I’ve ever used and force everyone I know to buy it. It’s great for super casual looks because it works with your lips to bring out the right color for you. I typically stick with the “Pink” shade for an everyday natural look, but also love the “Raspberry” for a little brighter pink. It’s more of a lip balm feel so it’s moisturizing which I really love. For a nighttime look, I pretty much only wear Tom Ford lipsticks. I love all of their shades and find it lasts the longest for me. For a good red, I love “Dressed to Kill”.

Making fewer, better things work in my closet is really easy when everything can work together. Making one outfit work two ways or four ways is no big deal when you have high quality basics.

This weekend was spent in a beautiful city high in the snowy mountains of Colorado called Breckenridge. Have you ever heard of it?
It's picturesque and has some of the kindest locals I've ever met.
For those of you who don't know of it, here are some interesting facts about this small city:
▪️Nearly 70 lbs. of gold was said to be mined in Breckenridge during the gold rush.
▪️The Gold Pan Saloon is one of the oldest running pubs in the country. It was founded in 1859 (I was there!).
▪️The town of Breckenridge is 7 miles long and 2 miles wide.
▪️The highest chairlift in North America is Breckenridge’s Imperial Express. At its peak it reaches 12,840 feet.
▪️The entire town has free Wi-Fi for both residents and visitors alike.
▪️More than 3 million people visit Breckenridge each year.
If you're thinking of taking a winter sports break, Breckenridge is the place to do it. Snowboarding, skiing and tubing are just some of the highlights the city offers! 🏂
  • Saturday afternoon plans I don’t want to cancel.☀️ @garyjanetti is one of the funniest writers and we probably don’t deserve him. Add this to your reading list because it’s fantastic and hilarious. I’m not into audiobooks at all, like please don’t ever recommend them to me because I will report you to the police, but I would listen to Gary read the audiobook of his because he’s so funny and I think it would be an absolute delight. 5 stars. 💛

  • Found my new favorite high-waist jeans 👖❤️ It took me a really long time to find a pair to replace my favorite Gap pair that ripped in the butt while I was leaving a Barnes & Noble months ago. 😐 Lesson learned to not trust $20 jeans. I’m writing a whole post to give you some insight into how I created a more curated closet and some of my standards to be less wasteful in my shopping habits. If you have questions about shopping more thoughtfully, pairing down your closet, etc., feel free to leave them in a comment! 👇🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • The outfit I’ll probably wear all of fall. 🍂 Just insert leather jacket. In other news I’ve given up using my blow dryer on the weekends. Well I do blow dry my bangs because if you don’t blow dry bangs you are living a wild, lawless life I am not prepared to live. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
