There was a time when I thought my Chanel bag was only for evening. Well, THOSE days are over. I realized it was just collecting dust in my closet so I have been taking it out for day more. I am typically fairly casual in my personal style. I work from a home office and am otherwise running errands when not being a soccer mom. So my daily uniform typically consists of jeans.
I am also loving this Madewell sweater because it is extremely soft. I have no idea what it is made of, but it’s yummy and has super wide sleeves. I am very into sleeve details these days and I wear a lot of Madewell. As you can see I do the half tuck and I was doing it before it was a “thing” and it’s not just to show off my Hermes belt which I have been wearing pretty much daily for the past 10 years. Truth? I have such bad metal allergies I actually get a rash from the tabs on the back of buttons on my jeans! I’m not even joking. Wish I were. So the tuck keeps me rash free. TMI? When it goes out of style I will still be doing it.
Also a hat is for the obvious bad hair days. We all have them, right?
