Ever find yourself needing to go from schleppy to dressy with only a couple of minutes to spare? Been there, done that!
As a working mom, I’ll admit that my wardrobe is not always the Lanvin or Isabel Marant that my mind’s eye thinks I’m wearing. Recently after a crazy day, I found myself with just 10 minutes to change from a Helmut Lang cotton jersey skirt and a tank top (not totally schleppy, but definitely casual and comfortable) to something fit for a nice dinner. My solution? Topping the outfit off with a blazer, awesome heels, and jaw-dropping jewels.
These are the essentials you need on hand for an instant pick-me-up that will make you feel fabulous, not only because you look fabulous but because you’ve got it so going on that you can move from your home office to the red carpet in a snap! Jeans, silk pants, and even shorts can make the switch with a few easy accessories (don’t bother with cut-off denim, though). As I walked out, my husband’s jaw dropped, and he actually checked himself to make sure he was properly dressed. Let’s just say I was pretty pleased with myself…
