Blue Jean

Let’s take a deep breath. We’re overworked, overtired, undernourished and underslept. It’s easy to get caught up in a tornado of public activity and production and not realize that you’ve been neglecting basic maintenance in your home and private life until you wake up one day in your clothes after another bewilderingly unsatisfying four hours of sleep and, staring out over the cacophony of receipt paper, single shoes and scattered clothing that has become your apartment and in the mirror at the single tear following the course of the imprint of the floorboard that creases your cheek, you murmur, “Help.”

You look fabulous when you go all out, but sometimes you need to pull back in to catch your breath. When your life is nonstop GO GO GO, reach for easy, basic, comfortable pieces that you don’t have to think about and that will get you through the day by being your soft, accommodating, effortlessly flattering friends. Make your wardrobe one less thing to worry about and spend the extra time you just made doing things like sitting down to eat and running a brush through your hair once in a while. Don’t worry, the clothes on your back– they’ve got your back.

May we present to you a two-piece outfit that serves as an exceptionally flexible base for all your ventures and adventures.

To begin:

The tunic.

Dora Tunic

To end:

The jacket.

Petrelli Jacket

You can add:

A scarf.

Handknit Cowl by Jill Lauren

A necklace.

With Care Necklace

A sweater.

Beckett Sweater

The tunic is long enough to be a dress on its own, but we want to be toasty warm and cozy. So add pants. Any kind of pants. It looks good with black leggings, jeans, chinos, skinny legs, bellbottoms and trousers alike. For shoes, go with a durable, goes-with-everything classic:

Campus Boot

Don’t think. Don’t worry. Just put it on and go.
