Your go-to combo … any time you hit the town

Go-to combo: Cinq a Sept blazer | Halogen cami | Coated denim | Schutz sandals | Balenciaga bag | Poppy Finch necklace

Your go-to combo … any time you hit the town 🌟

The birthday celebration week is starting (!!), and I’ve been so touched by all the pre-birthday love and kind messages from all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! When I’m back from our big trip, I plan on meeting a couple of close friends for happy hour, and will get a little dressed up. I plan on starting with this AMAZING Cinq a Sept blazer, which is often the the basis for my easy go-to combo for any time you hit the town: a great blazer, silky cami and jeans! Since this is the perfect outfit for any time you go out, I thought I’d write about it 🌟

This dependable trio is easy, effortless and stylish, and if you add heels and a great handbag, you can be ready in ten minutes — I’m not kidding. I gave this “go-to formula” to my friend a couple of weeks ago, and it is ALL SHE HAS WORN to every occasion since, including lunch, dinner, happy hour, a grad party and even a business meeting! Keep reading for a little style board inspo, and some ideas on how to put this outfit together. Cheers 🥂

P.S. I’m working on another YouTube video, which will be published this week (pre-filmed before vacation) and in case you’d like to see the other videos, click here.

The Best Blazers

A great blazer works with everything from dresses to denim to work pants, and it’s the eye-catching piece of every outfit. It always looks polished, and it’s worth investing in several you love. The Veronica Beard scuba jacket and the Miller dickey jacket are all-time favorites (I have them both in size 2 for reference). This Cinq a Sept is also a good option, and is available in several colors as well. Here are a few others that caught my eye!

Silky camis

Silk camis are the perfect layering piece. I suggest owning a cream one, a black one, and a color you love. They work under all jackets and cardigans, and you can wear them all seasons. With a great blazer and jeans, you’ve got your go-to combo for (almost) any occasion! This one is bra-friendly and affordable, and I always recommend the CamiNYC ones — check them out here and here.

Go-to combo essential: Great Jeans

The backbone of every closet, great jeans are so easy because you can wear them on the weekends with sneakers or slides, and in cooler months with sandals (for going out) and booties. I love a good coated denim, as well as black, gray, dark wash and faded wash. This is an integral part of your go-to combo! I wrote about the secret to buying jeans in this post — check it out here. Here are my picks!

Crossbody bags

A favorite crossbody bag you can wear with jeans or a nicer dress is a must-have in everyone’s wardrobe. Try one with gold chains — it’s eye-catching, and so pretty! This is an important piece in your go-to combo, and the options are endless!



Dressier Sandals

Dressier sandals work all year around. I realize there are exceptions, for example, if it’s raining or snowing — but if I’m going out, they’re my go-to! Invest in a couple of pairs, like a black and a neutral. The simpler the better because they’ll work with many of your outfits 🙂 Here are some recent picks I think you’ll absolutely love!
