the perfect outfit.


{Shirt: Similar | Necklace: A-Thread | Jeans: Similar | Shoes: J. Crew}




Sometimes all you need is a great patterned shirt and a fantastic pair of jeans.  If I could build my whole wardrobe around this concept, I would.  It's the greatest, simplest style formula.  On those days when I feel like a vest is too fussy, or an arm party is just more than I want to deal with, or I can't seem to make it past the first two hangers in my closet, this is what I turn to...the perfect outfit.

If I had any recommendation for someone wanting to invest in a great wardrobe, it's to go with this simple formula because it looks amazing by itself but you can easily add a fur vest (oh I can't wait to do that!), a cargo military jacket, a simple blazer or swap out the jeans for a pair of colored pants or a pleated maxi skirt or even leather pants (how amazing would that be).

It's easy, no fuss.  Perfect.

What's your ideal outfit?

  1. I can't begin how to tell you how much I love those top! It's perfect, I'm in love with the prints. And yeah, I agree those are perfect pairing down the shoes. I have similar shoes but mine wasn't from J.crew I got it Rubi (Cotton On) I think it's an Australian brand.

  10. We are so different! My perfect outfit is a dress - preferably a well cut 1-peice knit dress. I think I own 5 different ones in my "work" wardrobe. I would wear a dress/skirt every day if I could. It takes real effort for me to wear jeans . . .

  11. Great outfit and I totally love the versatility. I think I am more of a dress and statement necklace gal when it come to my perfect outfit, simply for the ease of it, but this has so many more options to play with :)
