I hope you guys find lots of outfit inspiration to make getting dressed in the morning easy and fun! In this post, I’m sharing lots of transitional outfit inspiration, my new favorite tee from Urban Outfitters (worn three different ways), and my new favorite work out tank.

Last Friday, I posted about transitional outfits and while I was writing it, I got inspired. The next day, I wore a flannel top with shorts and a cardigan tied around my waist.
Top- J. Crew, Blazer- J.Crew for similar, Jeans- AG, Shoes- Converse, Earrings- Nordstrom for similar, Watch- Cartier
Shorts- Anthropologie, Sneakers- J. Crew for similar, Hat- Red Sox
This outfit transitioned throughout the day. I had a breakfast meeting, so I wore a blazer with my jeans and popped the collar of my oxford. It started to heat up later in the day, so the blazer came off. Then it was off to the ball fields for my son’s t-ball practice. It was really hot by that point, so I threw on some shorts and a baseball hat.
Top- J. Crew for similar, Jeans- Citizens of Humanity, Shoes- J. Crew for similar, Watch- Michael Kors, Earrings- Argento Vivo
Mixing the preppy look (oxford) and the edgy look (hole-y jeans) for interest and fun! I sloppy tucked the front to show a waist line, popped the collar and rolled the sleeves for comfort and to make the look more casual.
Top- Nordstrom for similar, Jeans- 7 For All Mankind, Shoes- Via Spiga, Flats- Nordstrom, Sweater- Splendid, Bag- Coach, Necklace and Bracelets- Jeny Baker Designs, Cuff- Giles and Brother, Bangles- Alex and Ani, Earrings- Argento Vivo, Watch- Michael Kors
This outfit was also inspired by the transitional outfit post. I had fun wearing a sleeveless top with my wedge sandals in fall colors. I started the day with a light weight sweater and ended the day wearing it to dinner. But by the time dinner came around, I had to get rid of the heels!
Top- Here and here for similar, Pants- Rag and Bone for similar, Shoes- Via Spiga, Bag- Urban Outfitters, Necklace- Nordstorm for similar, Earrings- J. Crew Factory for similar
For this transitional outfit, I paired a summer-y top with a pair of what I usually consider fall/winter jeans and my wedge sandals. I think I’m going to do this again tomorrow. What summery top will you wear with your jeans?
Top- Everlane, Jeans- AG, Booties- Nordstrom for similar, Druzy Necklace and Bracelets- Jeny Baker Designs, Beaded Necklace- Stella and Dot, Earrings- Argento Vivo
I wore this to parent teacher conferences. It’s dressy but casual, with a sloppy tuck to show a waist line. Can you tell I’m obsessed with showing a waist line? -ha! It’s one of my favorite tips, because it makes a huge difference!
Top- Saint James, Jeans- AG for similar, Sandals- Nordstrom for similar, Watch- Michael Kors, Earrings- Argento Vivo
Easy. Classic. My kind of outfit.

Transitioning with a black sundress and a vest on top. Next up, a sundress with booties.
Up next is my new favorite tee from Urban Outfitters worn three different ways. I first blogged about it here. I knew I was going to love this tee! I love where it hits, I love the weight of it, I love the neck line, I love that it’s not tight… Well, I love it.

See how it hits just at the waist but doesn’t hug?

See how the neckline isn’t too low but is just right?

I love this new “marble wash” tank. It makes me feel cool for some reason. -ha! Oh, and it’s super soft.
Love all your outfits! What size did you buy in the first Jcrew plaid button down (comments say it runs huge)?

Hi! I don’t actually have the one that is linked, but love both similars! But since I know you and your size:), I would recommend you get the x-small or xx-small.
Love the outfit post but…. I also love getting a little peek of your beautiful new home.

Carly, I really enjoyed seeing how you transitioned your outfits throughout the day. It seems like I always end up changing my outfits completely, but you gave some great tips to show how easy it is to make simple adjustments to what you have on. Thanks!
Carly Lee (C. Style Blog) says
Thanks, Kristin! I’ll try to do more of them. Thanks for your comment.
Love all of these ideas!! Anyway you can share you size on your fav Urban Outfitters shirt? It looks so big on their website! Thanks!!
Can you tell me if the floral “summer-y” top is Club Monoco. I like the pattern of that one and can’t seem to find it.
