it’s a winnie-the-pooh kind of day. you know the one, blustery, breezy, and a little bit freezy. it was the kind of spring day i grew up with, in the midwest. but the sun made an appearance and should stick around for a few days. so i’ll take it.
so how do you dress for a transitional day? the one that can’t make up its mind between winter and spring? layers, ladies, layers. and having a style uniform doesn’t hurt. today, i’m sporting my favorite – the 4 B’s – blazer, button down, blue jeans and booties. typically i wear ballet flats with my style uniform. but seeing as the temps only flirted with the fifty-degree mark booties won hands down.
i tried my best to keep this ootd somewhat spring-like with a nautical navy blue blazer. this one is by Banana Republic 2014ish but take a look here and here for similar choices. if the buttons on a blazer aren’t to your liking, you can always switch them. this is an easy way to update any item in your closet. blue jeans are a wardrobe staple 365 days a year. when in doubt as to what to wear on a casual day this blue jean mama reaches for a pair. plaid is seen everywhere this spring and summer, so a plaid shirt was a no-brainer. and leopard? well, it’s a neutral, so i added a leopard belt for contrast. notice how it ties the suede booties into the mix. to add a little pizazz to my style uniform, i grabbed a camo backpack from Patricia Nash. now i’m off and running and ready to brave those stiff winds.
having a style uniform makes getting ready in the morning as easy as 1.2.3. some days we just need easy. right? happy tuesday!
