10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

There’s something so chic and cool about an oversized blazer—especially in a classic black color. I fell in love with this one the first time I tried it on at Amour Vert, so when they offered to send me one to style for you, it was an easy, “YES!” Not only do I love the fit, but more importantly, I love that it’s made ethically and sustainably—from soft and textured silk noil, a zero-waste fabric made from leftover filaments. That being said, it has more of a linen look and feel to it (not a smooth silk look), which adds to the casual-cool vibe.

In all of these outfits, I’m wearing my Emma Hoop Earrings in Mini Brass Bicone and Waves Coin Necklace. Both are currently unavailable, but I have some similar styles coming next month as part of the holiday collection, so stay tuned! I also have on my Yearly Co bangles—I have the twist bangle and two initial bangles with my kids’ initials on them.

Shop the blazer here (runs big!), and keep reading to see 5 ways I’ll be wearing mine this fall and winter.

Proof that style doesn’t have to be complicated. I love the simplicity of this look. The mules and bag add a bit of pattern and color, and the bodysuit has a sleek fit that contrasts the oversized blazer nicely.

Here’s one to file away for a chilly day (or if it’s already cold where you live, I’m jealous!). These leggings run small, so I recommend sizing up. And the mules run narrow, so size up 1/2 size (and I don’t recommend them for wide feet).

This is an all-time favorite look. Similar to the first outfit, it’s simple yet stylish and most importantly, it’s comfortable.

Same sweater and boots, different colors—the mix of red and leopard makes this look more bold and interesting.

Here’s a sort of high-low mix—silk top and heels paired with ripped up mom jeans. It’s a win for me! And the pop of red with the bag keeps it playful and fun. I love the circular shape of this one, but this is another great red option that’s rectangular.

    I don’t yet own a blazer and have been too intimidated as I’m not sure how I would wear in Austin. But you’ve inspired me!

    • Natalie says:

      This one is nice and lightweight—probably would work for a warmer climate like Austin! I’ve been able to wear it a bunch and it’s still warm here in San Diego.
