There are those outfits where you put a great deal of thought into planning – accessory matching, makeup pairing, hair vibe, shoe contenders – the works. Then there are outfits that you just throw on without a single thought yet somehow they can still be a favorite. I was having one of those latter days recently and wanted to wear something that I loved, felt comfortable in and didn’t need to think about. Enter a chambray shirt, jeans and loafers. I have to remind myself sometimes when I get wooed by the fancier, bolder and more high maintenance pieces that I need to have a closet stocked with basics before I can dabble in something more adventurous. So I am on the hunt now for another pair of perfect skinny jeans and another loose chambray shirt because I believe in multiples of your staples. And I believe in wearing good mascara and eating a hearty breakfast, but for now – let’s keep it to one personal mantra at a time.
