Easy Decisions: Sueded Days

Have you ever had one of those days where you don't have a clue what to wear or you aren't in the mood for putting in any effort to get dressed? It's not that you put too much labour into it normally, but it's just one of those days ... for me this was the outfit for such an occasion. Clearly it was all about the dated outerwear to come to the rescue.
I knew that I had loads on my to-do list: meetings, phone calling, running errands, etc. I also knew that it was going to be a longer day than usual, therefore my concentration was solely on cover and comfort. I opted for a longer suede jacket to cover what I felt was my "blah" of an outfit and added a belt to hug it all together. It was an easy and comfortable look filled with enough structure appropriate for all of my appointments.

  

Certainly not my exact "go-to" ensemble, but definitely one with the ability to grab and wear in a few moments and when you're running around, well a garment with pockets is a smart choice.


I hope the beginning of your week is going well.

    I hate days like that, but you recovered nicely.  Wearing the jacket open and belted is very smart.

    both the belt and the necklace are great touches to this outfit. i find that i'm constantly having "i don't have the effort" wardrobe days. that's when i bring out the skinny jeans and the oversize cardis.

  56. Sometimes it is really hard to choose when it comes to clothing, you open the closet and keep moving the dresses but couldn't get what you want to wear, my girlfriend does this all the time, by the way this jacket is looking awesome on you.
