One of the concepts that I kept reading about when researching capsule wardrobes was the idea of having your own “uniform”. While I switch my look up too often to consider it a uniform, the pairing that I reach for when I’m tired or just don’t know what else to put together, is a blazer and skinny pants. This look epitomizes my go-to, lazy day ensemble.

I picked up this plaid schoolboy blazer a few years back from J.Crew, and I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of it. I posted about my Ryder pants here, and they continue to be one of my most-worn pieces throughout the work week. They are very comfortable, and I prefer their higher waist. An additional plus, they are machine-washable, unlike most of the J.Crew dress pants, so I am able to clean them guilt-free.

Also for the mornings that I’m feeling extra tired, I wear my glasses–which has been more often lately, that’s for sure. Sometimes staring at the computer screen for 10+ hours a day is too much for my eyeballs, and wearing my glasses lets me feel like they can breath. Anyone else get home from a day in contacts and just want to scratch your eyes out? That’s me more often than not these days.

What do you guys think of creating a “uniform”? Is it something you already do, or something you do without even knowing?

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
