Playing Dress Up

We’ve all had those days where we’ve stood, staring blankly into our black hole-of-a-closet, searching desperately for something to wear but had no idea where to start. With the added pressure that comes from being late to work, having loads of errands to run, or my personal favorite – your handsome date is on his way to pick you up – a meltdown is inevitable.

I’ve found that by having a few neutral basics in your wardrobe you can save yourself some of the stress that goes into planning an outfit. Take the basic white t-shirt and jeans, for instance. Worn alone, you may look a bit blah… but by adding a few glamorous touches, you’ll step out of your house looking completely pulled together and fabulous.

Casual Friday

It’s Casual Friday at work, but you don’t want to look dumpy. What to do, what to do… Layer a graphic tank under your t-shirt and top it off with a cute jacket. A pop of color using great shoes, coordinating accessories, and a big fancy bag will have you looking amazing.

Running Errands

Now you have a ton of errands to run — now is not the time to break in those new heels. Cute and comfortable is the way to go! Adorable flats (oh, how I love animal print), minimal accessories, and a practical purse are essential for a day of walking and shopping.

Date Night

Finally, date night is here! Stress can cause bags under your eyes, which isn’t a good look, even for a beauty like you. Pull it together, love! An olive shrug and plum heels coordinate, without looking too matchy-matchy. Be a little fancy with gold and bronze accessories, including a clutch just big enough to hold your lipstick and keys (he’s paying, remember?).

A white tee and jeans doesn’t have to be boring. They can be used as a simple, effortless foundation and will save you so much hassle if you know what you’re doing. Try it out, my lovelies.
