NEWS FLASH: Basics with Basics, It Just Works
One thing I’ve learned about time management is that if I want to make it to work on time, I must have my outfit planned out the night before. However, I’ve never been able to get into the habit. Does that happen to you too? You know you should be doing something, but you still refuse to abide? I know I can’t possibly be alone on this!
Anyway, don’t think I’m late to work every day, because if anything I’m usually one of the first to step foot into the office, and I think my solution of sticking to basics has something to do with it. Winters in the east coast you’ll have me reaching for a turtleneck more often than not, and for that reason, I’ve maintained my basics collection replete with an array of high-neck tops.
Next, if I want to feel put-together instantly (and walk out the door in five minutes tops!), then a blazer is not only evocative of a working professional, but it does its job of making you look good as soon as you slip into one. Nonetheless, it’s now a wardrobe essential that’s not just for work, but weekends too! At the moment, I’m particularly drawn to boxy, vintage-inspired silhouettes.
To get away from regular black, a pair of corduroys in a fun color takes away from the mundane that comes with winter dressing. As for shoes, essential black booties will always and forever go with just about anything.
Wearing: Pink top from Uniqlo, vintage blazer by Ann Taylor, corduroy pants from Copper Key, Argento Vivo earrings, and vintage Etienne Aigner bag.
