A Little Bit Country...
When I wore this outfit to church, a friend cheekily asked me if my horse was parked outside... So yeah, I can see how it's a little bit country, but it's still totally wearable. This great chiffon pleated skirt is the right length to wear with either boots or heels without looking uncomfortably short. Paired with my favourite white tee and a cute purple jacket makes this outfit church-worthy and comfortable to wear.

Belted Comfy Cardi
Later in the day I kept this tee on and switched my "country" kicks for comfortable but still dressy grey pants, and a great comfy cardigan. Cinching the cardi with a belt defines my waist and switching up accessories to a magnetic necklace (styled by my 4yr old) and large face watch was a fast and easy way to go from church to daywear.

The cardigan, while super comfy, doesn't work well under pretty much any jacket, so a quick switch from cardi and belt to a nice cream faux leather zip-up jacket makes an easy transition for running errands.

So there you have it. The same classic white tee, switched up a bit by having a sweet pin-tuck ruffle at the neckline makes an easy transition with lots of other topper pieces. Investing in a few key classic pieces can make your wardrobe feel much larger than it actually is. And I'll be challenging myself to find new ways to wear many of the pieces I have in my wardrobe.
What's your favourite classic piece to wear with everything?
