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?
