I often find myself having to dress for multiple occasions in a single day. My priority is to be comfortable but since I can’t always wear skinny jeans with boots, I try to keep other staples on hand that can read casual or dressy relatively easy. These wide-legged trousers that I’ve had for going on six years fit the bill perfectly. They need a little doctoring to accurately take up the hem (right now they are safety pinned) but worked perfectly for my day: work, children’s group at a local elementary school, and then a substance abuse graduation event. Of course all transitioning quite easily into blogging and watching Nikita on the couch after.
Of course no outfit would be complete without a variety of thrifted/consigned items like this scarf, belt, and Kenneth Cole jacket and my trusty “scruffy” boots (not thrifted, but bought on sale!). As a co-worker described it, my outfit was very “fashion meets un-fussy,” but whatever gets the job done.
What do you wear when you have multiple priorities in one day?
dress worn as top – Kersh (Eurotrash) / trousers – Banana Republic (outlet) / belt – thrifted / scarf – consigned (Tunic) / earrings – Stella and Dot / ring – H&M / boots – Nine West / jacket – Kenneth Cole (Finicky Fox)
