While I do enjoy experimenting with my style, I always find myself coming back to classics, slightly preppy looks – like this simple schoolgirl-inspired contrast-collar dress and tailored wool coat. I recently had to head out of town unexpectedly with only 30 minutes to pack. With no time to spare, I reached for the easy, no-fail pieces in my closet like this dress and it’s grey counterpart. Now that I think about it, I probably have 5-6 versions of this outfit in different colors and sleeve lengths… and that suits me just fine. To keep the look from being boring, I added red lips (on my face and on my dress, lol!) for an unexpected touch of color.
And what about you – do you have a favorite fallback or style that you come back to again and again?
I’m officially on the bell sleeve bandwagon with no signs of getting off anytime soon. The snow has slowly started to melt, so I’m enthusiastically swapping out all my winter coats for fresh and colorful lightweight spring jackets like this one. As soon as I tried it on, I knew I just had to have it. I mean who could resist this fire-engine red show-stopper? Since the coat makes such a statement, I decided to keep the rest of my outfit pretty simple with a striped turtleneck and black stirrup leggings. Speaking of stirrups…
