The other day I was being interviewed for an article about personal style and the lady asked ‘what’s your formula?’ which completely stumped me. ‘Formula?’ I asked for clarity. ‘You know, what do you run to when you need to get dressed quickly.’ In the 15 seconds I had to think about it, I think I said boyfriend jeans, cute top, heels. But when I really think about it, I think it’s a dress and a denim jacket.
In fact, this is one of those outfits. All the elements of me feeling put together are here. I also kind of feel like my denim jacket is kind of a security blanket — I feel quite lost without it. We are currently stranded (in the lowest form of the word) at my in-laws this week. We came for a quick trip over the weekend and ended up having car trouble that seemingly will not end. This is day 4 and I’m running out out clothes. Luckily we shot a few extra outfits before we left and I’m an over-packer so for once it actually came in handy. Although, I might have to declare state of emergency on day 5 and hit up a Target or something. Things are getting desperate around here.
