Afternoon At Home

20130331-IMG_5712-Edit (1)

The truth is that even though my job often requires me to do a lot of running around, a great deal of my days are spent doing work at home. I really love these days. I move around from room to room for different work setups and inspiration, with my computer and pups in tow, treating myself to a square or two of dark chocolate and a cup of green tea around 4pm (I love the Yogi brand Blueberry Slim Life). When I don’t have a meeting or appointment, I don’t have to give a moment’s thought to what I wear. Often times it’s special if I throw anything but sweatpants and a drapey tee, which can be every bit as chic as a fully styled outfit in my book. But what I reach for in my closet when I’m on autopilot is usually some variation of this outfit – rolled up boyfriend jeans and a casual shirt of some sort. I love a rumpled crisp white men’s shirt like this one from Banana Republic. It’s comfy for lazing around at home, but if I have to run out the door I’ll throw on a watch and my favorite Moschino belt and I’m set for casual errands without feeling frumpy.

  1. OMG YOUR DOGS ARE SO ADORABE. Sorry for the all caps, but really, they’re so cute! I love lazy days at home, but more often then not, I’ll bee found I’m a pair of shorts and a simple tank rather than such a chic outfit!
