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.

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!

GET THE LOOK
Have you heard of Nepali by TDM yet? Even if you haven’t, you may have already spotted their scarves on a few celebs like Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway, Gwen Stefani and Courteney Cox.
When Nepali contacted me to become a brand ambassador, I jumped at the chance. Not just because they’re popular among celebrities but because they’re about so much more.
Each piece is handmade by their community of Nepalese women artisans using eco-friendly processes. Nepali provides their craftswomen with above-market compensation, access to healthcare, and full scholarships for their children to attend school. They believe that economic freedom and education are tools of empowerment to help women break the cycle of poverty. How could you not love this company?
The scarf that I’m wearing today is the Bambi Abbie in Nectarine and Monaco Blue. It comes in 7 different color combos and is made of 100% lush bamboo.
Nepali is offering a special discount just for GYPO readers. Get 25% off their entire site with coupon code GETYOURPRETTYON.
