About six months ago I was having a much-needed brunch with my girlfriends. The “my-six-month-old-is-home-so-bring-on-the-mimosas” kind of brunch that ends with a belly ache from laughing and lots of catching up. After that lunch, my friend, a fellow working mom, texted me a picture of herself and said “thank you for not making me have to think about what to wear today.” Her toddler was tugging at her shirt – the same one I wore the day before along with similar jeans, flats and accessories. It was then I realized I should revisit the idea of starting a fashion blog (or restarting the one I half-started five years ago). And it was all because of one simple go-to outfit of mine.
Cut to now and my revised version of that outfit, fresh with a new (smaller!) chambray shirt, new (smaller!) black skinnies, a different necklace and some booties, just in time for fall. It feels so good to have such a cute, easy, and even inspiring outfit to turn to when I don’t want to think about what to wear. And it helps that this outfit aids others in not having to think about what to wear either!
