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.
EASY OUTFIT FORMULA
White Denim + Striped Tee + Chambray
Add Ons: A fedora, your favorite bag and a pair of bright shoes for a pop of color.
[Jeans: Similar/Chambray: Similar/T-shirt: Similar/Shoes: c/o Ecco/Purse: c/o Wink & Winn/Fedora: Same/Watch: Same]
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.

Even though it’s been a lot of fun looking forward to fall fashion, I’m just not quite ready to let go of my favorite summer outfits yet. This chambray/maxi dress combo is one of them. I’ve worn it to church, sightseeing in New Orleans, to doctor’s appointments, even to run errands. It’s been my all-purpose summer look. I’ll be retiring it soon but here’s one last tribute to one of my summer favorites.
I’ve worn several variations of this outfit – with and without the fedora, with a head scarf, with statement jewelry – but this one with this gorgeous yellow and blue scarf from my friend Avril at School Gate Style is one of my favorites. Stop by and check out her beautiful scarves and accessories, like these.
