My Go To Outfit

Good morning...I mean afternoon ladies!!  I'm so sorry that I'm behind today, but I was doing a guest post for my SIL Lindsey today.  It's on spring colors and bikinis, so be sure to check it out here!  Work and grad school have been kicking my butt lately.  Only 98 more days until I'm out of school for the summer, but the heck's counting?  Sometimes I don't have as much time as I want to really pick out a good, new, creative outfit to wear for the day.  Somedays I just want to pick something up that I already know "works."  Everyone has that go to outfit that they wear, and I'm no exception.  Mine would definitely be a blouse, usually 3/4 sleeves, silk preferably, skinnies, 5 inch peep toe pumps, a couple bracelets and my favorite Coach bag.  In the winter, I'll throw on a great infinity scarf too.  In the summer, I'll change it up by pairing this with a cute pair of lace or scalloped silk shorts and sandals or flip flops.  I think I just got a little excited just at the mention of the work FLIP FLOPS.  They aren't fancy, but they sure do mean it's summertime, and that is reason enough to wear them all summer long.  Do you have a go to look that has become your uniform?
