Welcome to another week of Sunday Best! Last week was great! I loved the awesome outfits you linked up and I’m really anxious to get even more inspired this week!

Jeans and a white tee will never go out of style

Tee: Old Navy
Jeans: LOFT
Sandals: Clarks
Necklace: NY & Company

I have a confession. This entire post is cheating. Not only is this outfit almost an exact repeat of an outfit I posted at the end of summer, but I also have shared one of these pictures already AND I took these pictures on the same exact day I took last Sunday Best’s photos . . . Forgive me. Alas, I have been tied up with work and figuring out how to time manage AND take pictures daily that I haven’t quite figured out the best work flow. I’m working on it! In any case, I had to share this outfit because it truly is my go-to outfit for nearly every casual occasion.

The last time you saw this, I mentioned it was a K.I.S.S. outfit. Keep it simple stupid. Because sometimes simple is best and because simple always works.  Cropped jeans and a basic white tee is universally appealing AND it’s really easy to add an accessory, like this statement necklace, to make it a little more polished.

Can I also give a quick shoutout to this gorgeous backdrop that has made an appearance several times on the blog as of late? This is Hartwood Acres, a stunning landmark estate that features this gorgeous mansion, horse stables, sprawling acres of foliage and hiking paths, and an outdoor concert venue. It’s a great place to walk, bike, picnic, explore, and relax and the perfect place for pictures.  It’s so great to have that nearby to enjoy. Where do you go to “get away” and admire nature?

Ooh, just another reminder: if you’re interested in participating in one of my two amazing group giveaways for July and August, be sure to sign up soon!

  1. I actually like the outfit – simple but put-together. I must remember the “KISS” formula next time I get dress :P
    And what a gorgeous backdrop! Was it used in any movie, do you know? Because that facade looks super familiar (esp. in the photo of you sitting down.)

    1. Thank you! It’s a great formula :) And yes, actually! I think a lot of movies have been filmed there, but most recently, The Fault in Our Stars! I haven’t seen it yet (shocking, I know), but my parents were able to watch some of the filming while on a walk. Pittsburgh (and it’s suburbs, like this one here) is THE place to be for film these days :)

  2. I don’t think it’s cheating at all! It’s an efficient use of time when you have a blog and a job to take pictures when ever you have the time. Also when ever you’re at such a gorgeous place. That building looks amazing. What a treasure to have near by.

  3. I love simple as sometimes (or many time) less is more. I love the rolled up jeans. The backdrop is so awesome.

  4. I love K.I.S.S. Outfits. That’s another great necklace and here are those Pretty Sandals by Clarks, once again. =)

    Gorgeous, gorgeous background. WOW!!
