FLORALS AND STRIPES

 
 Jeans: Old Navy | Blazer: Gap Factory  (similar - herehere and here) |
Shoes: H&M (similar - here and here) | Purse: Zara (similar - here and here)

This outfit came together in under 2 minutes. That's all the time I had between stepping out of the shower and when I had to be out the door to make it to my daughter's school for my volunteering gig. So I wore the first things I laid my hands on. And these shoes were lying by the door, so without even pausing to think or care whether they worked with my outfit, I was gone.

After I was back home, I realized I had a free hour before having to head back to the school, so again without much thinking I ended up at the mall where 2 things of import happened - 1) I ran into another woman who I enjoyed chatting with. Both of us recognized that we had seen each other somewhere before, and just got talking. Only later in the day did I find out that she was actually a former colleague of my husband's. But neither of us knew it when we were talking. We just bonded "organically" over shopping talk. And 2) A sales associate at Ann Taylor complimented me on my ensemble. She said I had put it together very well and she liked my styling.

What did I learn from this? Don't think too much about what to wear. Close your eyes and grab the clothes and they will style themselves. "Hmm...probably not...that has the potential to get out of hand very quickly. What if I grabbed my bathrobe?" is what you are thinking. But wearing a robe on your clothes is a perfectly legitimate style these days.
What else did I learn? It pays to be a little lazy with housekeeping, or if you want to put a spin on it then lets put it this way - always have a pair of shoes on the ready for a quick getaway. I can see Bond, James Bond nodding his head in agreement.
And what else did I learn? Its okay to talk to strangers sometimes. They don't always bite!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a great day.
