Sometimes the best outfits are so simple it's silly, really. A few things I'm bound to feel comfortable in:

1. A soft shirt in a pretty shape -- who doesn't love clothing that is just so soft! Bonus points if it actually looks good, right?
2. An easy color scheme -- can't go wrong with denim on denim, if you ask me. Plus we all know that blue is universally flattering.
3. A headscarf -- sometimes I just feel like the top of my head needs a little something. Is that weird?

I can already tell I'm going to reach for this new Gap top a ton this spring/summer. Like at least once a week. I've always been a fan of the blue-on-blue look -- it just makes me feel like me -- but I'm also excited to copy Jenni's outfit with the same shirt and my black high-waisted jeans and favorite new espadrilles.

Can we talk about this wall for a sec? Chelsea and I were driving around looking for a place to snap a few photos of this outfit when we passed this crazy wall. When you see the whole thing, there's like a big mermaid or something on it, but we thought this little section near the corner was perfect for my ombré blue 'fit!


  1. I love the headscarf on you! And denim on denim is just so relaxed & easy to wear.

    Ps. I just emailed you!

    xo, Maddy

  2. so lovely ^_^ can't go wrong with simplicity

  3. 1. your outfit is PERFECT. if my weird-shaped head would hold a scarf for more than 3 seconds, i would totally copy this outfit 100%. or when we meet up for tacos, you can teach me your magical scarf-tying ways!
    2. love that you are matching the wall that you took pictures against

  4. I bought a similar top from LOFT last fall and I love it. It's so comfy and versatile. You have been killing it with finding the perfect backdrops lately!

  5. You are so cute hon!! I love your outfit. The headscarf was the perfect addition.

  6. I love all the blue! So cute. (Also, please share your posing secrets because I have such a hard time not feeling/looking incredibly awkward in pictures I make my best friend take of me.)

    Maybe we should get coffee sometime soon? Eh?

  7. You seriously pick the best outfit backdrops! This wall is lovely and perfect! I need to start taking pictures in cool places!

  8. 1. I'm utterly in love with that necklace! It's perfect in every way.
    2. The headscarf look is adorable on you - it's something I'd love to try when my hair grows out a little bit.
    3. You look amazing in these flowy tops and skinny pants - you have the longest legs everrrrr!!! [insert thumbs up emoji here]
