if there is any style tip i can impart to you dear reader it’s this: figure out what looks good, and feels good on you and stick to it. in other words – get a uniform. for me, i like to keep it classic, and simple. tailored blazer, sweater, jeans for winter. tailored blazer, tee, jeans for summer. ballet flats, sleek pumps, or ankle boots complete the look. add a few key accessories like today’s fringe purse and my uniform stays on trend. i’m also a big fan of belts, and you’ll typically find me wearing one or two of my favorites time-and-again. it’s the small details like handbags, shoes, and belts that will elevate your outfit, but gives your personality a chance to shine. for super simple style stick to a few key pieces that you can mix and match, and wear with confidence.

Great outfit! And, yes, figuring out what looks good on you and creating a uniform is definitely a good idea. I always love the fun touches you add to your outfits!
a uniform keeps my life simple!
The sweater and the fringed bag add a lot of fun to your “uniform”. I totally agree with Miss Andrea…figure out what looks good on you and stick to it. It’s the unexpected touches that keep it from becoming ordinary.
the devil is in the details!
I love this “uniform” so put together . I sooo love the frenchie sweater, my brother just got one as a pup, Jack, so cute! Why can’t I find a shih tzu sweater/ top? ☺ love the bag too
this sweater is one of my favorites as we had an english bulldog for years! even though this has a frenchie on it i can’t help but think of buster every time i wear it. i’ll keep my eyes out for a shih tzu sweater if you keep your eyes out for a german shepherd sweater.
that is my “kind of Uniform” You look put together and classy! Well you always look classy and put together!!!
what a sweetheart! life is less complicated when i know i have a go-to look i can put
together in minutes.
