What a week! I was so relieved when Friday hit. Not only was it a welcome change to sift through my denim piles; it was also nice to mix up some layering pieces as well. Between a very FT job, one ear infection, one sore throat, a broken car handle, mommyhood and crappy sleep - this was about as creative as I could get. 

Looking back in retrospect, there's nothing not to love about this outfit. It's still polished enough for a Friday but relaxed enough without looking sloppy. Like I always say: stock pile neutrals in your closet for those brain dead days. Zero effort and still looking chic is a must when you're in a pinch. 

That and a good tube of lipstick can save any day.

P/S You need a classic trench, too. They make every outfit seem more pulled together.

I bought this particular trench 10 years ago and it's still in great shape. Every time I think of donating it; I pull it out one more time and it still does the trick. Found at Zara, too!
