Do you have a favorite print? Stripes and repeating geometric patterns are the only ones I purchase.
I have worked from my home office for many years, learning long ago to dress for the day prepared for anything. I have my morning coffee before 4 AM, and by 7 AM am ready to face the world, with much of my administrative work completed already.
My simple formula for dressing for work never fails me, and I am always comfortable. I start with a neutral color top and dark wash jeans or simple black pants. These staple pieces are the perfect blank canvas to accessorize, which means I don’t have to change everything I am wearing numerous times a day.
My attorney may call me to sign papers that I have to take to my accountant. I may have to go to three different banks and the Post Office before I return. When I make those rounds, I will likely wear a blazer.
When my sister calls me to meet her for lunch, I can throw on a scarf and grab a crossbody bag to look casual but put together.
When I return home, I may put on a vest and a pair of slip-on sneakers to comfortably finish my day.
I’m excited to try some of these new salad ideas.

I visited my stylist for a long-overdue trim last week. I may not see him again for three months. The products I use are from Beautycounter here. My hair is naturally wavy, so I lift it with my fingers as I blow dry it on the low fan setting, but high heat setting.
