A reader wrote to ask me, “Why do you always wear neutrals?” My answer is, “They are timeless; I can wear my classic neutral pieces in endless combinations, get dressed for any event in five minutes, and always feel confident.” Trendy tops and print items from the past didn’t stand the test of time. I grew tired of them in a few months. They were never a good investment for me.
I wear neutral, solid, classic pieces repeatedly for years and never grow tired of them. They are the building blocks that allow me to create any look.
Another question I get often is, “What do you wear while you are just hanging out at home?” These photos show you my look for Tuesday. I worked at home for the first part of the day and then went to the Post Office to mail the remainder of your orders and then to the grocery store. After that, I stopped by the garden center to get flower baskets for spring.
I buy knit tank tops in a larger size so that they don’t pull across the bust. I don’t remove the sweater, so the fact that the armholes are too big never shows.
The lightweight navy cardigan and tank (here) are from Chico’s last year. The Levi’s 724 (here) high-waisted straight leg jeans are the same style I’ve been wearing since high school. A similar watch is here. The loafers are by Børn and no less than five years old. (Similar shoes here) I’ve carried that Dooney & Bourke salmon tote (here) for a couple of summers. Totes are very convenient while running errands.

Those are my favorite Balenciaga sunglasses (similar), and Mr. Mickey gave me those earrings years ago. All of my hair and skincare products are by Beautycounter here. My lip color is Little Black Dress by Beautycounter (here). Even my hair cut is easy to maintain. The classic cut with layers works with the texture of my hair.
