My Go-To

black and white striped shift dress, hot pink pumps
neon statement necklace, T + J Designs
black and white striped shift dress, hot pink pumps
coach madison lindsey satchel bag, hot pink pumps, fuchsia pumps
Dress: c/o Onze, Shoes: c/o Vince Camuto, Bag: Coach, Sunglasses: c/o Sosie, Necklace: c/o T + J Designs, Watch: Michael Kors

It's no secret that my go-to is a black & white outfit with a pop of color. (see here, here & here, for example!) I'm guilty of never leaving myself enough time in the morning to get ready, so I rely on this trusty combination to keep me looking at least somewhat put together during my work week. Black & white stripes, a colorful necklace and/or pumps and bam! All set!

What is your go-to/fail safe combo? Or are you one of those girls who plans her outfits in advance and gets up with more than enough time to walk out the door perfectly polished?

  4. I'm like you Kate - "what is closest to me that is clean"- and bam! Jeans, tee, cardigan. Sometimes a necklace!

  5. My fail safe are cropped pants, a top and a blazer. I love the black, white and pop of color combo. Great style!

  6. I'm one of those night-before planners...although I still don't always end up perfectly polished! :) I'm just not good under pressure like you apparently are!

  7. Your go-to "uniform" is time-less and looks good on you, so setting aside the fun of experimenting with variety, I vote that you stick with this (I predict yesterday's window-pane dress will get lots of mileage). Since starting back to work this summer, I've been defaulting to wearing a light cardigan and neutral flats with sundresses to make them office-appropriate.

  10. Love your go-to! I don't usually plan my outfits, I think about them while I'm getting ready but sometimes I waste so much time deciding, that I really think I should start planning! x

  12. I plan my outfits the night before because I can't put anything together in the morning for the life of me! But I love black and white, and adding pops of colour. You can never lose.

  16. Hi Kate, I've missed your posts! I am so glad to be back blogging and finding inspiration from you! I love this! I have to agree with you, my go-to is usually very neutral with pops of color. It's just a timeless and classic look to me! I usually try and plan ahead, but it doesn't always happen that way :P xo
