You don't have to have a big meeting on the calendar to spruce yourself up a bit. Even if I am scheduled to be home-based and have no meetings on the calendar, I always try to throw in a bit of style. Case in point: This casual look I put together.
Nothing about this outfit looks like it takes too much effort, yet if you ran into me you would know I care about style. How to do it? Likely you have a skinny jean and black boots in your closet already. Now all you need to do is gather some great accessories, a cute top and head out the door.
For WAHMs, SAHMs or anyone with a non-corporate life, an outfit like this can make you feel pulled together. When I like what I am wearing, I act more confident and am ultimately more productive and happy. Schlumpy clothing does zero for my mood.
Let's break down the pieces. The jeans are old and from LOFT. The boots are new (and my friend Caryn Bailey from Rockin'Mama has been after me to send her the link--here you go!)--the Keena from Vince Camuto.
The Coated Canvas Bag is from Lands' End. Its light and durable, the zippy dots make it interesting as does the contrast monogram. The top is also from Vince Camuto. The black and white top has faux leather shoulder accents--making it anything but basic and boring.
