In thinking about my last weekend outfit, it felt a little off from my stated style of Effortless California Polish.  It was a little too casual and not polished enough.  I think the issue comes when all my individual pieces are casual, and there isn’t one slightly more polished item.  Enter white jeans.  Something about white bottoms (jeans, shorts, skirt) instantly makes any look more polished.  This is still my weekend uniform of T-shirt, jeans, and comfy sandals, and yet this outfit feels way more put together than the last one.

Navy Striped Jumpsuit – Summer Workwear

I love jumpsuits for summer – they feel like pajamas yet make me feel put together instantly.  I get a lot of compliments on this one!  The cropped leg necessitates a nude shoe on my 5’2″ frame – while a higher heel would probably look better (probably true for all outfits), the 1-inch block heel on these sandals makes them very walkable.
