everyday uniform

A magazine journalist recently interviewed me and asked me to describe my daily go-to look and I was stumped. The truth is I don't have one, but I do have a dozen or so pieces that are in constant rotation (and, as you know, often updated!). And I do have a daily mandate, which is to look pulled-together (even when I am just sitting at my computer all day long) and feel comfortable. The clothes I turn to on a daily basis include a striped t-shirt (which, the mother-of-three model, above, beautifully elevates with a jumble of long silver chain necklaces and a polished cropped jacket); a black cashmere sweater; utilitarian but chic flats* (which are 30% off); sleek black pumps; low-heeled ankle boots or sandals* (depending on the weather and my agenda); jeans (cropped*, slimming boyfriend, and skinny); an army jacket (I love this new parka-meets-blazer from Warehouse); a well-made, perfectly-cut t-shirt in grey and white; a polished sweatshirt; and a go-with-everything blazer and statement jacket. Also, below are some other inspirational throw-on-go outfits that are as stylish as they are easy!

Hi Marlien
The link to the "go w/ everything blazer" just goes to the general net-a-porter page.
