There’s something about a classic jeans and tee look that I can’t get enough of. When cozy cotton and denim come together in an outfit, they make the ultimate dream team.

Don’t get me wrong, I love dressier looks, but as I get older, my style has become more focused on being comfy while still being put together – enter this not so basic outfit currently on repeat! Dave snapped this pic last week during our road trip to southern California.

The basic tee is a classic style staple that can be worn for any season. It can be dressed up or down to create a look that works for day or night. Paired with a high-waisted skinny jean (which helps elongate your frame) and summer slide sandal, the tee goes from basic to bonafide fashion statement. And, I have yet to find a basic tee and pair of jeans that aren’t comfortable enough to wear every day.

It can be hard to balance life at times, so going back to basics helps me stay on top of my personal style game without sacrificing comfort. Summer is an especially busy season, with traveling, outdoor adventures and extra family time. So the easier it is to stay stylish and comfortable in the summer, the better.
