Key fashion pieces to get you out the door in no time:

Keep it simple! For the sake of limited time in the am All looks are built around easy to work with basics-i.e, denim/leggings and basic tees/tops with no buttons!

Designate "grab and go" area of your closet

1)  The mini-trench- One of our faves bc it pulls a tee and leggings or denim together in an instant.  AND if you're really short on time can be a life saver. You could have half of your pj's on and no one would know!!!!!!!!! I know this from experience!!

2)  Go-To Blazer- A great piece to have in your arsenal bc it can be thrown over anything from dresses to denim.  Again, when you're short on time pair it with your basic denim and top and this will take you from carpool to meetings, etc  

STYLE NOTE: To give it a little edge you can pair an oversized with it and roll the cuffs to give it a more current vibe.


3)  Tweed jacket-These aren't your mom's tweed jackets any more! For those who want a more on-trend look, an updated tweed jacket is also an easy piece to pair with your basics once again! The current tweeds have been updated with zipper detail, distressed fabrics, etc!

What about accessorizing? Any look can be tailored to your own style by adding accessories such as a statement bag, eccentric jewelry or just a great pair of sunglasses !  All looks can be easily paired with flats, boots or booties. Your choice!

Any of these pieces can be found at low and high-end stores for any budget.
