I used to whine and complain about having to wear a uniform to school every day. But now? I’m all in on the uniform thing — 100% all in. Because in the summer months (or all year-round, really), I’d rather spend less time standing in front of my closet, stressing over what to wear, and more time doing important things, like hanging out with friends.

This is why I love the combination of linen and denim. Full disclosure: I traded in my jeans for shorts now that the temperature has reached 90-degrees. But these are my favorite pair I’ve ever owned and I need to tell the world. The fit is perfection. I guess that’s why they call them the “perfect summer jean.”


This outfit combination is perfect if you work in a more laid back office environment, and can easily be dressed up with colorful accessories. I’m loving bold scarves at the moment — they can be incorporated into your hairstyle, tied around your neck or your bag. Take a look at this onethis one, and this one (the color palette is my favorite).

And speaking of bags, I’m obsessed with this one. The sweet team at Hobo sent it to me and I’ve been carrying it with me everywhere since. The leather is soft and the color is perfect for summer. It can easily be carried into fall, too. I love how it looks with white, denim and everything, honestly. It’s so good.
