On the rare occasion when I’m feeling somewhat “uninspired” in the wardrobe department, or if I’m in a hurry to put together a look for a last-minute invitation, then jeans and a T-shirt (or sweater!) will probably always be the combination that comes to my rescue!!
And I imagine that’s very likely the case for most of my readers, too!! Denim is now considered appropriate attire for virtually every situation; and together with the right top – an embellished tank for a cocktail party, or an old band tee for a painting party! – we truly are ready for just about anything!!
But after that, it’s usually the choice of accessories that take a relatively basic ensemble into more interesting territory. This morning I was headed to our local Starbucks for my go-to soy chai latte and a couple of hours of blogging…so I hoped my biker jacket and studded bag would give off just enough of a “tough girl” vibe to keep away unsolicited conversation from strangers (I was there to work, after all!!)
It didn’t…I was still briefly ambushed by a client who recognized me from my job. But hey!! At least he got to see me in something other than my scrubs, right?! 😉
