Yesterday I wore a black jersey tunic dress, black leggings and flat gray slouch boots. I was accessorized with silver hoops and a colorful scarf– simple but important details! When my friend saw me at morning school dropoff she commented that I looked cute and asked if I was trying to make the rest of the moms look bad. Then she asked if I was going someplace fun. My reply? “The store then I am going home to blog until I come back for Kindergarten pick-up. I’m just sick of wearing jeans!”
I explained to her that it’s just as easy to put on the outfit I wore as it was to throw on jeans and a sweater. We both agreed that it looked better too. The message I want you to get from my experience is this: It’s not hard, nor does it take more time, to look great even when you just doing dropoff or running errands. People notice your efforts and they comment. You feel great knowing you look great! What can be wrong with that?!
Here are some outfits to inspire you:
Short Sleeve Cable Knit Sweater Tunic + tights + ankle boots
