It finally feels like spring in New York City, and I am so excited to be able to wear a few of my favorite warmer weather pieces, new and old. Sweaters are cozy, but I am beyond ready for tank tops and cutoffs!

Lucky for me, my office is relatively casual, so I am free to express my personal style most days a week. I picked up this denim jumpsuit from Reformation after coveting a similar one by Second Skin Overalls for over a year, and it is perfect for springtime in NYC.

This piece has a vintage feel with a modern relaxed silhouette, which makes getting dressed super easy–just add a pair of booties and you’re out the door! The no-fuss fit with structured details makes this jumpsuit ideal for the office, and the flare leg is a fun change of pace from the tapered overalls/utility suits I usually wear. Not to mention, it is really flattering and it feels just as good as it looks.

There are definitely dozens of ways to style a basic piece like this one, but today, I am playing up the vintage vibes with my favorite cat-eye sunnies (thrifted from Melrose Trading Post in L.A.), a bright orange lip and my go-to worn-in brown leather booties. I also added my Pop & Suki camera bag, because that comes pretty much everywhere with me.

You’ve probably figured out–if you’ve been following me for longer than, say, five seconds–that denim makes up a huge chunk of my wardrobe 😉

When it comes to apparel that isn’t activewear/loungewear, there is *nothing* more comfortable or confidence-boosting than worn-in denim (not even a super flow-y maxi dress, in my opinion)!

I’m not too sure what constitutes a denim expert–or if there is even such thing as one–but I *am* sure that if that label truly existed, it would be branded across my forehead.

Over the years I have tried an insane amount of denim in search of that ultra-flattering cut and a second-skin fit. And I want to save other women the trial and error by sharing my most-loved pairs with you!

One Teaspoon: This is one of the first labels that, as an adult, I really feel like resonated with me. I was instantly drawn to the gorgeous wash, impeccable details and fashionable fit of the Awesome Baggies in the Cobain wash.

Since then, I have expanded my collection to include more of the Australian label’s statement-making denim, including one of my favorite pieces of all-time: a white utility-inspired  jumpsuit.

One Teaspoon has really mastered those badass, rock ‘n’ roll vibes, and I am so obsessed!

Revice: From the second I pulled these bad boys on, they were both comfortable and flattering. Inspired by the shape and cut of vintage denim, Revice jeans really lift your bum and flatten your stomach. Bonus–they are made in the U.S. (LA, to be exact) with premium-quality, durable materials.

Levi’s Wedgie Fit: As soon as I picked these up, I knew I should have done it sooner! The Levi’s Wedgie Fit are the most comfortable and flattering jeans I have ever worn.

They have the high-rise look of a “mom” jean, but the wedgie fit, as the name suggests, tightens and perks-up your bum (whereas mom jeans tend to flatten and elongate the backside).

I also love that these jeans are snug through the thigh with a tapered (but not-too-tight!) ankle–perfect for pairing with literally any shoe.

Re/done: Re/done gets a lot of hype from bloggers and influencers, but they really are a great investment. Manufactured in Los Angeles from recycled denim, Re/done jeans are beyond durable.

The label’s range of essential pieces are great no matter what your style is like. Personally, I think they are ideal for creating a chic model-off-duty look.

In addition to classic jeans, Re/done is also known for a handful of signature styles. My favs? The Ass Rip jeans, which have a cheeky tear right below the bum. I love that the tear is reinforced so you never have to worry about it getting any bigger!

There is nothing more attractive anyone–man or woman–could wear than jeans and a white t-shirt (at least, in my opinion). Throughout the years, this combo has made me feel put-together, confident and, most of all, comfortable.

While I love getting dressed up and glam from time to time, I am definitely a sucker for borrowed-from-the-boys styles, especially during the daytime. Baggy trousers and grandpa cardigans are both staples in my wardrobe. Even more essential, however, are an array of jeans and white t’s.

To keep these pieces looking and feeling fresh, there have definitely been a few small tweaks in terms of how I style them as I’ve grown up. And I have definitely come to the realization that there are two go-to ways I love to wear these pieces.

The first is a relaxed top with high-rise jeans, and the second is a tight, stretchy top with slouchy, low-rise jeans (like I’m wearing today).

I can’t wear this combo without a thick leather belt; I love the way it pulls the entire look together. If the weather (or the occasion) calls for it, I will also throw on a jacket in a color that ties into the belt. Today I opted for a gray knit one so that I could get away with wearing the black belt with brown shoes 😉

Embellishments, subtle patterns and distressing also bring these looks to life! Plain, no-nonsense jeans are great, don’t get me wrong, but I looove a strategically placed tear or two (or 10). Details like these are the perfect way to add texture and depth to a super basic outfit, but still look relaxed.

Gold or silver necklaces (the more the merrier) are definitely a must for me when wearing jeans and a white t-shirt. The metal instantly gives the entire look a more polished vibe.

One final way I keep this look feeling fresh is by swapping the shoes from year to year. For both jeans-and-white-t combos I mentioned, I tend to go for booties; they give me height but keep the look casual.

Currently, animal prints are my favorite option because they are made of neutral colors, yet they add a new pattern/texture element to the mix.

I have two pairs of snake print ankle booties (one brown, one white and gray) that I absolutely could not live without. They are the perfect combination of fashionable and effortless. (In the past, however, I’ve loved styling these outfits with Doc Martens and other chunkier styles.)

Someone who really inspires me to create more stylish, yet casual outfits is YouTuber Lauren Elizabeth. She always looks incredibly put-together, even in jeans and a white t. I take a lot of cues from her when it comes to personal style, then put my own spin on them. Keep scrolling for inspo and to shop my entire look! 🙂

One trend I am absolutely loving this season is the longline blazer! They are sleek, stylish and sexy (basically every adjective that starts with an “s”)!

After mega-babe Emily Ratajkowski surprised us all with her seemingly sudden courthouse wedding, I had to get my hands on the gorgeous, mustard yellow longline co-ord she wore!

I don’t normally shop at Zara–the quality is usually lacking and their company values are extremely questionable–but these pieces were priced higher than usual for the retailer, so I figured they were worth a try. Thankfully, the fabric is thick, the color is vivid and the buttons look strong.

This suit has a relaxed, retro-inspired flared fit despite its tailored appearance, but the adjustable tie belt emphasizes the waist. I love how Em Rata styled it with a chic black hat and a simple pair of heeled sandals.

She definitely caught a lucky break in New York’s blustery winter, because by the time my suit arrived, temperatures were below freezing again. So, I styled it with my go-to office shoes, my heeled black booties.

I kept my makeup neutral and fresh because the suit makes such a statement; I wore my favorite blush by Tarte called Seduce, a rosy nude, as well as ColourPop’s Lumière, a muted mauve lip.

As time goes on, I definitely want to play around styling this suit, both as a set and as separates. And of course I can’t wait to wear it with a floppy hat and heeled sandals à la Em Rata.

Surprise! I am thrilled to share that I am now a Pop & Suki ambassador. Last summer I fell in love with this accessories line, and now I can’t imagine living without my personalized Camera Bag or Leather Notebook.

To celebrate, I am treating you guys to an extra blog post this week. (The piece originally scheduled for today will go live Sunday evening–did you see the sneak peak on IG?)

It’s perfect timing. Considering I have a super busy and exciting week at work next week, I may not be able to stick to my usual MWF posting schedule. So, there will be a fourth post this week.

Today, thanks to Polyvore, I am showing HM readers how I style my black P&S Camera Bag for four occasions: Daytime (business casual), evening, weekend casual and Formal.

Shop this bag (and the rest of Pop & Suki’s range) here!

Day:

While this bag may be small enough to fit in your go-to work tote, it holds a ton. Keep it on hand (and stocked with a lipstick, compact and your wallet) for when you run out to lunch, grab coffee or go anywhere that doesn’t require your bigger items (such as a daily planner or laptop).

Evening:

For happy hour with the girls or a dinner date, leave your tote at home. Everything you need easily fits into this small and lightweight bag: your I.D., bank and metro cards, makeup and even a portable phone charger! It’s my ride-or-die for a night out.

Weekend casual:

Ditch the standard crossbody strap for the Fanny Strap next time you head to the farmer’s market or a flea market! You will be hands-free and have easy access to everything you need–plus, you won’t have to worry about misplacing it.

Formal:

Forgo straps completely, and you’ve got a clutch that is just as unique as you are! This bad boy can hold way more than the average evening bag. Not to mention, it’s more versatile and looks more modern.
