Go-To Looks

You know how you have those go-to outfits?  When you're digging through your closet for something to wear and just can't decide... Or when you're on a time crunch and don't have time to switch in and out of several ensembles.  Up above is my favorite go-to getup for a night out on the town.  (I actually sported this Friday night.) 
Dark, bootcut jeans because they're always flattering.  Camel-colored booties with just a bit of a cowgirl kick to them because I love the hue and they have just the right amount of heel.  A form-fitting, black v-neck tee is my ultimate go-to item.  A black leather crossbody bag keeps my hands free.  And lately I can't stop wearing my pocketwatch-style necklace.  Typically a pink lipgloss kinda girl, I resolved to start wearing red.  With such bold lips, I keep the rest of my makeup simple: a dusting of bronzer on my cheeks and eyelids, some black eye pencil on the outer half of my top lids, and lots of mascara.




For a causal workday or class, I'm all about the plain white tee.  Pairing it with slightly distressed skinny jeans and a soft beige cardigan is my equivalent of sweatpants and a sweatshirt.  (I don't dress down much...)  When I keep the colors so plain, I'm almost always inclined to grab for my red flats for a pop of color.  I usually carry my caramel-brown slouchy bag and wear over-sized pearl studs as far as accessories go.  For cosmetics, I stick to my go-to pinks: rosy blush, rose-hued lipstick, some pewter eyeshadow with the slightest tinge of pink, brown eye pencil, and again lots of LashBlast mascara. 
Lastly, this is my go-to outfit for those in-between occasions.  Not dressy enough for a night on the town.  Not casual enough for going to class.  I find myself grabbing for these articles of clothing when I'm heading out to dinner or the coffee house.  It consists of my black skinny jeans, a plain white tank, and loose gray cardigan.  I slip into my new gray biker-style booties and wrap a fun scarf around my neck---likely my bright turquoise one for a burst of color.  A charcoal bag keeps things simple and I'll usually skip jewelry altogether.  As far as makeup goes, I brush on a bit of rosy blush.  I do my eyes up with a bit of purple that makes my green eyes pop, completing it with some black liner and mascara.  A little nude-hued lipgloss adds shine.


So now I want to know what your go-to look is for a night out, class, work, or just chilling at the coffee house!

I think maybe I live in a colder climate than you do... I haven't worn just a tee since October! My go-to outfit for shopping or hanging out with friends is black leggings (either my thick sweater ones or my corduroy ones) with a long tank top layered under a long-sleeved tee with my collegiate cardigan. Add boots, a warm scarf, winter coat, hat, & gloves, and I'm good to go! Oh, and a quick coat of mascara with a smudge of lip gloss.

Do you happen to know which brands the brown and black purses are from?
