I’m often asked, How do I stay out of yoga pants? (Though I’m known to never pass up a stylish pair.) My answer is anything but breakthrough but here it is: basics. I invest in great basics. If you follow me on instagram you’ll see the same re-occurring pieces: red slinky heels, great jeans in blue, white and black, a classic moto jacket and the ubiquitous ray-bans. I love mixing and matching and so should you. The school drop off shouldn’t be complicated and won’t be when you have a plethora of basics to fall back on. My usual school drop off attire is an alpaca duster, cutoffs, a tee and trainers. And if the facts that second grade homework takes hours every evening and my toddler quit potty training and has resorted to diapers (cue the tears) aren’t reasons enough for simplicity, then I’m not sure what is. I have no time to dance around outfit planning. I’ve found that if you invest in enough quality pieces, you’ll only be resorting to yoga pants on the days you’re actually heading to yoga. Now, that’s revolutionary.
