I am consistently running from work to dinner, from a meeting to a play date. I imagine you are like me and your days completely get away from you. I can’t be thinking about my clothes every five minutes, so I wear a lot of versatile clothing. I wear minimal makeup and run my finger through my hair before I get out the door. With that said, I like my clothes to look a bit more polished so that I don’t resemble a rag-a-muffin.
My hint for versatile clothing is to look for pieces that can be dressed up and dressed down. One of my favorite looks right now is the jersey pant, with heels and a leather jacket. If you have comfortable heels pair them some amazing jersey pants and a jacket and instantly you looked polished while remaining comfortable.
Some days I’m running from work to play. Once I’m done with business, the heels come off and I throw on a pair of flats and perform my motherly duties; such as chauffeur, clean-up crew and chef. This way I can go throughout the rest of my day in the comfort of flats while not looking like I just rolled out of bed.
Rule of Thumb:
• Choose heels and flats that would be in the same family (e.g. same color, same style, same material, etc.).
• Choose a top and bottom that are basic and can stand on their own.
• Choose jewelry that is subtle and classic.
We all have days where we are running around. Why not look great and feel confident while we do it?
