Showing you different ways to wear closet staples is one of my favorite things!


I often hear from you guys that you know you own versatile pieces, but you just can’t come up with different outfit ideas for those pieces.

I’ve done tons of Dressed Up/Dressed Down posts over the years — you can find a bunch of them HERE! — but today I want to do a Dressed Down/Dressed Down post.

Two casual outfits with one piece.

I’d love your feedback on these kinds of posts!


I’d actually love to have your feedback — would you prefer more Dressed Down-Dressed Down posts, or do you prefer the Dressed Up/Dressed Down outfit ideas?

Compile a bunch of basics for a perfect winter outfit.


This first outfit is so simple. Stripes, dark wash jeans, and a leather jacket. Most of you can probably recreate this outfit from pieces in your closet because they’re all basic closet staples.

Toss them together with a good bag and and some cute ankle boots, and you have a really simple, chic outfit.

[tip]: If you need a little extra warmth, toss on a big cozy scarf or a warm beanie!

Try light wash jeans and a cozy sweater for an intro-to-spring look!


This second outfit is one of my favorite outfits to wear as spring rolls in.

I don’t usually wear light wash jeans during the winter — you’re much more likely to see me in dark blue, dark gray, or black denim — but as we head into spring the lighter denim is back in the rotation.

Paired with a cozy sweater, a felt hat, and some ankle boots keeps it appropriate for colder weather but feels less dark and moody for winter.

 [tip]:if you need extra warmth, toss a wool peacoat over your sweater!


Tell me which outfit you like better!

    Love the double dress down post. And, I like the second outfit better (because it is cozier/comfier and I have worn that many times!)
