Not Into: Skinny Jeans

"Jeans are one of the essential elements of a wardrobe, so having a pair you love to wear is important. Lately, I love wearing loose-fitting white jeans with a tank and a blazer for a business-casual outfit or with my favorite T-shirt, a handbag, and sandals for a weekend look."

Into: Larger Bags

Not Into: Super-Tiny Mini Bags

"As adorable as micro bags are, I have too many items to carry, so I'm choosing larger totes and handbags that will hold all my essentials."

Into: Denim Jackets

Not Into: Longline Cardigans

"I always have an extra jacket on hand, and during the summer months when the nights are cool, a jean jacket is my choice. From cropped to oversize styles, there's a denim jacket for everyone."
