During the stages of my life when I was living out a suitcase (staying abroad in Italy, interning at Nordstrom HQ in Seattle), I developed a pretty perfect “uniform” for myself. This simple combo always looks good, and can be completely retooled for an entirely different look with just a few small tweaks. Here is the formula:
BLAZER + T-SHIRT + JEANS + CHIC SHOES
That’s it. It doesn’t get much easier than this to achieve sleek, stylish minimalism.

Sporty Street Style

This is a rare look at my more casual and sporty side of my style spectrum. I totally get the appeal of athlesiure, because it is so easy and comfortable – but it just really isn’t my style. Truth be told, this look is probably as close as I will ever get.
