Despite all of the peplums and pencil skirts, a-line dresses and silky tops in the world, sometimes nothing is better than your favorite jeans and a great t-shirt.  I’ve been traveling for jobs a ton lately, and when it comes to packing, I love to choose things that don’t have to be dry cleaned and are wrinkle resistant — a drapey tee like this one and my favorite jeans are usually the first in the suitcase! But just because it’s a simple combination doesn’t mean you can’t add your own flare to it. This Lovers + Friends top fits and feels like a tee, but the gold studs make it more stylish and dressed up.

If I were going out in the evening, I might throw these on with some over-dyed black jeans or leather skinnies, but for the day my favorite boyfriend jeans do the trick (I also wore them like this!).

I’m kind of a minimalist in general, but even more so when it comes to jewelry. I love these brightly colored stackable rings by By Boe. Sometimes I just wear a couple at a time, but this particular day I piled them all on. My bracelet is Forever 21 and the watch I’m wearing is the first Christmas present Aaron ever gave me! He bought it at Wanna Buy A Watch– one of my favorite vintage shops in town!

I am super into the pointed-toe pump right now — it feels more fashion forward at the moment than my round toe pumps and added a little bit of an edge to this simple jeans and t-shirt look. These are from JC Penney (similar to these) and my bag is a YSL Roady which they don’t make anymore. I am obsessing over the new more structured bags at Saint Laurent— stunning!

Since jeans and t-shirts are major wardrobe staples and I am always looking to try new ones, I would love to know who makes your favorite denim and tees? Do share! Also, if you want to follow along on my travels of late, this is the place to do it!
