If there's one type of outfit I return to on pretty much every single day off (when I actually have a reason to leave the house), no matter the season, it's the standard tee and jeans ensemble. Every single time I think 'I'll find something else, stay away from the jeans', I tear my wardrobe apart and then pick up the first pair of jeans I find, a t-shirt and then I'm done. I'm probably the laziest style blogger in existence.

So, naturally, I'm trying to find more interesting ways to style our favourite go-to casual two-piece (they're basically a co-ord at this point, right?) for Spring/Summer, and challenging myself to make it all about the details and the accessories, that's the whole purpose of them, to liven you up a bit!

Granted, my love for blazers still hasn't died off (it's been years, Samantha, get over them!) so they're often the item I throw on to make my look a little less casual and a little more, Oh look who actually made an effort! Whether you throw on a blazer and some heels, a denim jacket and some flatform sandals, or a fedora and some Converse, work around the essentials and enjoy reinventing the straightforward trend.

White Tee & Black Jeans

I love the simplicity of this look, yet I felt so good in it. Whether is was the lovely soft tee or the strappy platform sandals I could clomp about in, it all felt effortless yet neat, perfect for a day of shopping followed by a night of cocktails. What more do you need from a spring/summer outfit?

Sage Blazer & Statement Bag

If I can get away with a throwing a blazer on over my jeans, you just know I'll grab the opportunity with both hands and run off into the night with it. Stick on a chunky chain necklace, some strappy mules and a sage croc print statement bag, I'm ready to go just about anywhere. This versatile look is easy to recreate and another idea day-to-night outfit perfect for any occasion.

Belted Jacket & White Converse

This casual look has been pulled from my photo archives, but I still love it just as much as I did back then, and throw this on whenever I'm struggling to make an effort. I'm not usually a hat wearer but there's something about this look that makes me want to throw on a fedora and a rope bag, and play all day in the sun.
