I’m craving ease.

Simple. Unfussy. Basic, if you will.

I’m looking for it in all aspects of my life – how I work, what I eat. And most importantly, what I’m wearing.

And there’s no easier outfit than a blouse/skinny jean combination. Especially when both pieces are made from comfortable, soft denim.

Also, when your pants double as Spanx. Comfortable Spanx, that is.

I’ll happily spend a little extra on classics like blouses and flats.

Especially fancy flats. It’s probably been a year since I last purchased a pair of heels. But statement flats (like these Gucci loafers) are my favorite way to zhush up a simple look.

Pricey? Very. Worth every penny? Definitely.

Especially when they match your favorite grab-and-go small purse.

Sticking to the same color (in varying shades) is another style trick I use to upgrade a simple outfit.

And blue is my new black – especially a rich navy and a pale chambray. My love for an all-navy look is no secret (see here and here), and I can’t stop. Won’t stop.
