Easy Outfit Formula | White Denim, Chambray and Stripes

Hey pretties!  I’m starting a new monthly series today called Easy Outfit Formulas.  I’ll bet you can guess what it’s about.  That’s right! My favorite tried and true outfit formulas that make it easy to get dressed everyday.

Today I’m featuring one of my favorite spring to summer transition looks.  If it’s cooler where you live, you can wear long jeans instead of cropped with a long-sleeved chambray.  When the weather heats up, you can swap out the jeans for white shorts and pair them with sandals instead of flats.


White Denim + Striped Tee + Chambray

Add Ons:  A fedora,  your favorite bag and a pair of bright shoes for a pop of color.

white-jeans-ecco-ballet-flats My feet stayed happy all day in these super comfortable bow ballet flats from Ecco.  They are very lightweight and have long-term cushioning for all day wear.  The leather is soft, lightweight and breathable.  These would be great to wear for shopping, a field trip or a day at the zoo.

It’s Your Turn:  How would you make this easy outfit formula your own?  Tell me in the comments!

Getting my pretty on with Fashion Friday.

  • My favorite part of your outfit is DEFINITELY your pop of color flats! Love ’em so much!

  • Love this outfit!!! The flats, the bag, the hat…I want it all! (I also want your amazing genes!)

  • I absolutely love your bag!

  • I would say this is THE best outfit formula for summer! Can’t go wrong with that!

  • Such a nice casual look, love this bag.


  • This is such a polished, chic look. The accessories really make the outfit. You look great!

    I would put a red tank under the chambray shirt. I love red, and I love your look too!

  • Lovely look, Alison! The little leopard details of your handbag are so cute.
    Your ballet flats look great and comfortable at the same time!

  • What a great outfit! I love your handbag! I’m looking forward to more from this series. 🙂

    xo Always, Abby

  • Very cute – love it! I’ve been wanting to get a fedora to rock this summer. It’s a great excuse not to do my hair too! 😉

  • Love it all! Those shoes, that bag. Perfect! And this post confirms I need a short sleeved chambray shirt asap.

  • Love this and the versatility of it depending on the weather! Love the pop of color with your flats!

  • LOVE this outfit look and the shoes are the best part. 🙂

  • I copied your look today! My shirt was blue and white striped, so I put a hot pink tank under it instead. Obviously I love this look! You look amazing as always.

  • adorable as always! Ill definitely refer to this as the spring/summer goes on

  • Great outfit formula. I wished I could rock the fedora like you do.

    That is indeed an easy and chic formula and I am all about Outfit Formulas, Alison. Such a cute Alison look. =) Loving the bag and flats, my friend.

    This look is slightly Nautical too and I am all about Nautical lately. Check out this week’s Outfits. LOL

  • Love the fedora! I couldn’t pull of the white jeans with kids around, but a pair of jeans with a cute t-shirt some Toms on my feet and some aviator sunglasses would be my easy outfit!

  • Debbie

    I adore the whole outfit but that bag — oh my I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

  • Perfect outfit essentials. Love it – and that fedora is super cute!


  • Lovely outfit, and what a great idea for a monthly series! That bag is really pretty… I’m heading over to check out the site!

  • I love chambray and white together. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a chambray shirt that I feel comfortable in. I need to look harder I guess?? You look adorable. LOVE the red shoes.

  • Alison,
    Sorry it took so long for me to get to this post. But, boy is it ever worth the wait. I adore this outfit, classic and very Alison. The hat is so pretty on your compliments your perfect features, and I am in love with the red shoes and the bag!

  • For my climate and body my changes are:

    shorts (capris aren’t flattering on me)
    striped tank (instead of t-shirt: too hot w/additional shirt)
    same short sleeved chambray – cute!
    hat – yes!
    swap flats for low wedge sandals (I’m short!)

  • You have me convinced that when the weather cools back down again, I need to invest in some white jeans. I love how the chambray looks with them, but I’ve avoided it in the past – can’t wear it with regular jeans without people wondering what prison you escaped from. The white jeans, though, are absolutely perfect with chambray!

  • You’re adorable! I didn’t buy your top pick for white jeans (instead got a longer pair), thinking they’d be too short, and now I’m regretting it and realizing the cropped look is way better for summer!
