Hello friend!

In this series I’d like to share simple go-to looks that will always work for you. This past week I had one really rough day. I truly did not want to go to work. I was not feeling well. But I had to go in as I had a few meetings I could not miss. So I forced myself upĀ and dragged myself to my closet. Needless to say, I was in no mood to dress up (gasp! it happens!). With very little energy available to create a unique look, I turned to one of my old stand-bys: a striped dress with a patterned scarf.

The simplicity of a striped outfit paired with a bold floral print just screams happy and pulled together even if you don’t feel that way. I got many compliments that day despite feeling unwell.IMG_7965 (2)

This look works with both swing style dresses shown above as well as more fitted dresses like below.

Dress: Kohls; vest: Express; scarf: Norstrom Rack; shoes: Nordstrom

This look is also ideal for travel. The dresses and scarves do not take up too much valuable luggage space. They are comfortable to wear, work for many occasions and will not wrinkle easily. Can you ask for more?
