back to basics
last week was just one of those weeks. i’ll spare you the details and share the only one that is truly pertinent.
wednesday morning, bleary eyed, i threw on blue jeans and a plaid button down. slipped on animal print ballet flats. topped it all off with a vintage chanel black and white boucle jacket.
the fedex guy at the studio said, that’s quite an outfit.
(quite a bad one)
it was a default. because favorite blouses are threadbare, and both dress coat and beloved booties have (literally) fallen apart at the seams. i haven’t shopped in half a year but i don’t need to tell you that.
you can tell just by the look of it.
we all get in ruts. for many reasons. especially w/ work wear because (for better or worse) it comprises the majority of our lives. and i would argue that this isn’t entirely superficial. it’s about presenting yourself. feeling confident. important stuff…
so i bit the bullet and got back to…
silk pintuck / thomas mason tuxedo shirt / wedge booties
