|I am often asked if I create my week's outfits ahead of time or if I throw them together in the morning. The truth is, I used to put much more thought into planning my outfits than I do now. These days, I find myself wanting to spend less time thinking of what to wear in the morning. Instead, I'd rather spend my mornings playing with Lucy (our dog), or putting together a well-rounded lunch and packing my gym bag for later, or just sleeping in a bit longer. |
Sure, I still randomly think of cute outfits that I can create at a later time, jot the ideas down in the "notes" section of my phone, and reference them in times when I'm running low on inspiration. But, for the most part, my outfits now are quickly thrown together in the mornings and always focus on three things:
practicality, comfort, and style.
So, what's my (not so) secret formula for creating quick looks that POP?
1 Pattern + 1 Bright pop of Color +1 Interesting piece of Jewelry= Perfect (quick) Outfit!
