I'm a big believer in uniforms. (I'm a product of public schools, so I guess I don't have any school uniform repulsion.)
Uniforms make life easy. Now, I'm not talking about those fashion-y people who wear all black every day. Or have a closet full of the same perfect, crisp white shirts. Or Steve Jobs for that matter -- what's up with all the black mock turtlenecks?
I just want a cute, modular wardrobe that I can not think about, and just throw something on while herding a speed-crawling 10-month-old.
Actually, I think my workday uniform is more like an equation:
First, it's all about the tunic...
then, add some of those skinny jeans, leggings, whathaveyou (don't worry, the tunic prevents "overexposure")
then, for Fall, add boots... flats otherwise
top it all off with a cozy scarf...
...and a cute tote bag for your book, lunch, water, stuff
This one's from Hayden-Harnett... it's SO great. I have it in navy, and check out the lining:
so cute it hurts.
SO... classy ladies (and gents)... what's your uniform? Uniforms: thumbs up or down?
(all items, except for tote, are from Anthropologie. Not to say that I shop there THAT much, but I... kinda... sorta..... do. A little.)
