Jeans & a tee – you just can’t go wrong!
Happy Friday friends! It is day 5 in the summer 5×5 style challenge and I am all ready for casual Friday. This jeans & tee combo are just so classic and, even in itself, can be worn so many ways. Here is my final challenge day look!
I love ankle jeans for the versatility in length. They look GREAT as is with a pair of heels or booties, but then I love to cuff them for a more casual look. I think it totally gets more wear out of your 1 pair of denim jeans.
It’s the same shirt, but different day. This Velvet Tee I ranted about in my last post is back again. I love the slouchy fit of this tee and, to give it a more laid-back look I paired it with my fav bralette. I wanted to keep the look clean so I picked black on black. Bralettes have been my saving grace with a toddler – I mean WHY must she still shove her hands down my shirt and pull at the neck for all to see? Throw a bralette on and I no longer feel as exposed because a) its cute! and b) it looks intentional like a cami.
I love my converse for running around town. I think they are such a great way to give an outfit an instant casual vibe. These slip ons are GREAT and so easy (yay no laces!!) but I also have my eye on this great white pair.
Although I wanted to keep my outfit super casual, it wouldn’t be me without a girly touch. That’s where my accessories come into play. I love how delicate and feminine pearls are. They are simple enough to spruce out any outfit without being too flashy. Some detailed earrings and necklace are just what this outfit needed to pull together.
So there we go – I made it! 5 outfits with only 5 pieces. This challenge was SO much fun and really made maximize the pieces I already had in my closet. These last 5 days have made me see the versatility in the pieces I already own. That is key in creating a great capsule wardrobe. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the budget to buy a new wardrobe every season, so this is the perfect way to really stretch your creativity and come up with great outfit choices with the pieces you have.
