“Put Together”

When I work with clients I always ask this question (in so many words), “When you leave a room, what would you like people to say about your appearance?”. The answer is always pretty much the same- “I just want to look put together”. Me too! In my mind there is no easier way to achieve this than by just adding a scarf. I love to wear jeans, a tee and flats. Add a scarf to that combination and viola!– a put together look with very little effort. That’s what I’m talking about!

I recently bought this white long sleeve shirt from Nordstrom for $14.95… can you believe?!?!

I love the mercer pocket tee from the Gap for a short sleeve version.

Today I was with a client that loves scarves. She had a Tory Burch scarf (on the left) that she wanted to wear more, but wasn’t quite sure what to pair it with. I was so excited to find three outfits using the scarf. The picture on the right is her scarf collection. What I learned today, is that you can never have too many scarves. I think Europeans are on to something- ha!

Sequins!

I’ve always loved sequins, so why has it taken me this long to buy a sequined shirt?!?!?! I know why! I always felt like I had to go somewhere fancy to wear it. I’m loving the new sequin trend! The best part is that they are putting it on casual/comfortable silhouettes, like cotton tanks and sweatshirts. Now that’s what I’m talking about- a little bit of glam, but I’m still comfortable.

I love that I can wear this sequined shirt with my jeans just as easily as I could to a Christmas party with a black blazer, my black slim leg pants, and heels. I wore this to Thanksgiving to be festive and a little dressy, but still comfortable. Plus, my Aunt used to have a no jeans at Thanksgiving rule, so I thought I’d show up in sequins- ha!
