What’s your go to outfit?

There are days when I either lack inspiration to be creative in styling my outfits or in a time crunch. When this happens, I default to my default outfit style option aka “back up style”. This Summer, my default styling option has been a pencil skirt paired with a cute top/blouse. In addition, I make each outfit special by adding unique touches  such as my choice of accessories, the color palette, or shoes.

I relied on my default style a lot  this Summer, so much so that my coworkers were convinced I did not own a pair of pants. They were shocked when I appeared in jeans on a casual Friday. See below for some of my favorite looks created with my back up styling option.
