As an interior architect, I’m really involved in all of the renovations of me new house. This means that I’m on the job site early in the morning, running back and forth to Home Depot, lifting heavy bags of concrete, and sometimes even laying the tile in the shower. If that was my only job, getting dressed in the morning would be a piece of cake–jeans and sneakers and then out the door! A lot of times though, I have to take meetings during the day for different things, or I’ll have dinner plans without having time to really get ready. On days like this, I like to wear easy and versatile pieces that I can easily swap out.I’ve had these Frame Denim jeans (similar here) on repeat for the last like 5 days in a row because it’s so easy to wear anything with them. In the morning when I head to the new house, I throw on something basic and warm, like this black turtleneck, with my Nike Roshe Run sneakers, and if it’s extra chilly, I’ll wear another layer like this Madewell sweater coat, then throw my stuff into a neutral bag, like this Chloe Inez with grey python (similar here, here, and here). Sometimes I shower.
Quick change after the job site. Changed from the black turtleneck into this chunkier grey one from Madewell, and took my sneakers off, switching them out for these velvet ankle strap pumps. They also come in black, and there’s a similar pink velvet flat version. Also, everything on Madewell is 25% off with the code LATEBIRD. I swear this isn’t sponsored by Madewell.. I’ve just been pretty obsessed lately.Voilà! Ready for the rest of my day and I didn’t even have to stop at home first.
