Happy Monday lovely friends!!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  After some random severe weather (like tornado sirens blaring on Friday night), we enjoyed gorgeous weather on Saturday and hung out all day.  On Sunday, Mr. S and I worked on some house projects FINALLY!  We have some beautiful pieces from his Grandmother, and we’re trying to make room for the old and new!  I did a quick DIY with an old shopping bag by framing it.  (You may have seen on Instagram.)  So fun right?!

When I don’t have time to “think” about an outfit, I reach for my uniform – a tee, blazer, jeans, and heels.  The blazer and heels give the outfit a polished look.  BONUS if you have a pretty piece of jewelry to throw on like this fabulous one-of-a-kind necklace by AK Designs.  My talented friend crafted it from a 1920’s Eisenberg Original fur clip hand wrapped with gold-fill wire with labradorite and pyrite beads.  I LOVE that it’s a mix of old and new just like my closet and home!  A necklace like this would be perfect for Mother’s Day.  Hint hint!

The Style Rx:  Top off a tee and jeans with a blazer and heels.  You’ll look freshly pressed even if it takes you less than 5 minutes.  Wearing monochromatics (the same color family) steps up your game especially if it’s white or black! 

Another “uniform” for workdays is a dress when I’m running late.  There’s no matching required!  Just dress, shoes, and go!  What’s your go-to uniform?! 

My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them. – Bono

    Cute! Any tips for modifying for the brutally hot Texas summers? Don’t think I can do a blazer. Also what shoes would work besides heels? I don’t think I can carry my babies while wearing heels :) I guess I’m asking about a “summer uniform” but something that still looks put-together and stylish.

      Tyler! Thanks for taking the time to comment and what a great question!! After Little M was born (July/Aug), I tried to look chic in a hurry by wearing maxi dresses. You can wear them with lower wedges (or flat thong sandals) to safely carry the babes around. I wore no arm jewelry but did wear some smaller necklaces/earrings. And cotton/linen scarves are another great way to accessories (or hide stains – LOL)!

      Also, I found some great linen pieces – like a linen cardigan from JCrew (in this post: or a linen blazer (if it’s a little chillier) as a great layering piece for the summer!

      Hope that helps!! :)

    I like your easy fashion formula! I don’t wear it often byt jeans and a blazer is a great combination I admire so much on others like yourself Sam :) I got all excited when I found another Zara blazer, like my black one but in cream…of course it got wet in the Sydney storms and so now I don’t know what to do with it, poor thing stinks. even after spending the day outside in the sun to dry. I was looking forward to wearing it, have had to re-think all my outfits for this week haha. Somehow none of my other blazers seemed as right, haha.

    This is an awesome go-to outfit, I love that it’s both classy & casual. I wish that I could wear heals around the city more, but I tend to wear them down within a few excursions. One day when I own a car maybe that will change.
