personal style

Is your work wardrobe slacking? You may be surprised what a couple updates will do to your overall look. Welcome the ruffle sleeve, the gray topper, the pencil skirt and over-the-knee-boots. These are some simple chic pieces that will finish any look. I can easily trade the boots for flats and a leather jacket, or the pencil skirt for skinny jeans. The options are limitless when you have neutral basics. See more workwear in THIS earlier post. What’s your favorite go-to look?

I’m all about the simple #ootd. Let’s be honest, I struggle everyday to get four children out of the house for school, so I’ve been finding myself gravitating toward the simplest of pieces. Here, a shirtdress, faux leather leggings, and and edgy nude heels take center stage. It also happens to be just as appropriate for meetings as it is for date night. For the latter, I would add a suede jacket and lace up boot . After all, basics can very well be classics when paired well. As for the smiles from my little guy, I’d like to thank the dried mango and lollipops, not shown.
