I have a secret: I don’t exactly enjoy dressing up. So if I can get away with looking put-together, without actually putting in any effort, I’m game!
I often have a good laugh when I show up for a girl’s night with my friends and they mention that I look so “dressed up.” Ladies – I didn’t even think about my outfit this morning, let alone style it to look dressed up! I tend to reach for my t-shirts and jeans on most days, but if a tee is dirty, I’m usually opting for a comfy, sleeveless blouse during the summertime.
There’s not much effort that goes into wearing a blouse paired with denim bottoms. If you follow my totally not-so-exclusive tips to looking put-together without any thought, you’ll rarely have to drain your energy choosing an ensemble ever again!

Would you like to know my secrets to enhancing a casual outfit? It’s color and accessories.
Wearing color instantly brings life to an outfit. That’s why this gorgeous, coral sleeveless blouse from Aritzia is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. I’ve noticed that I feel a thousand times more cheerful and more put-together when I have this vibrant tank on. It’s incredibly lightweight (without being sheer) and it’s the perfect length to flatter an array of body types. The straps are wide so you don’t have to wear a strapless bra, the neckline isn’t too plunging, and it doesn’t stick to your skin, which is awesome for those toasty days in the sun.
Another key to looking put-together without any effort is adding cute accessories. I nearly always wear a layered gold necklace. I mean, really, with any outfit! From graphic tees to plunging dresses, I’ve usually got a couple of strands around my neck. They take two seconds to clasp on and make it look like you took way more time getting ready than you actually did! Add a cute pair of block-heel sandals (still comfy, but nicer than flip flops) and a pretty bag, and you’re set!
