Our Favorite closet staple- classic straight cut, dark wash jeans
Look: Business Casual Friday @ the Office
We are suckers for a good dark wash jean, but this straight leg pair is one of our faves. The classic fitted shape and darker color make these pants perfect for a 'business casual' Friday at the office.
These dark wash jeans easily could pass as business slacks, especially when dressed up.
Jeans and a blazer is the new suit and tie look in the start-up professional world, making this outfit on trend and stylish.
Kate Middleton is known for rocking this look, having sported dark wash jeans with a navy blazer on a few occasions. (See our favorite here!) The Duchess's casual wardrobe is the inspiration behind today's look, with a little tweak.
We love the light neutral blouse with a navy blazer layered on- a very smart look when trying to still maintain a professional style a la casual. We worked in some cognac leather via caramel colored wedges along with a leather purse with a pop of the same cognac for a coordinated but not matchy-matchy ensemble.
Keep the rest of your accessories simple and minimal for an elegant - yet casual - business casual look.
Look: Savvy Traveler
Whether you are road-trippin this summer for a family get-away to Disneyland or flying cross-country for a little beach vacay, this outfit ensemble is your best friend. However you plan on traveling, it is sure to include long stretches of sitting and prolonged moments of standing. But style doesn't have to be forsaken in the name of comfort!
The key to chic travel wear is to balance comfort and style.
With a trusty pair of straight leg dark wash jeans, you can mix and match tops, shoes, and accessories to dress up or down for your vacation schedule needs.
The ever-classy J Crew striped shirt is comfortable and also accommodating to a casual or slightly more dressy occasion. Accessorize with a silky scarf to dress the look up.
Traveling anywhere necessarily means walking, and usually, more than we are used to. As such, go with your favorite pair of neutral flats - already broken in!- for a more pleasant trip.
Our last and most important tip is to corral all your belongings into a practical bag. We're noticing a wave of fresh (and darling!) backpacks hitting the market, and we are loving it! A convertible tote like this Henri Bendel number makes it convenient to grab your bag and go- in style!
