On Mondays, I’m all about simplicity. When I was getting dressed this morning, I honestly had no idea what I wanted to wear… But I knew it had to be something quick, easy, and no-ironing-required.
My life is in a major transition right now, as is my wardrobe. 
C and I are now the proud co-owners of the family florist business, and after years wearing corporate 9 to 5 attire, I’m kind of struggling with figuring out how to dress for my new role. I want to be casual and comfortable, but still look like a business owner. Clothes also have to be more dispensable now, because I’m learning that florists can get dirty! Cute aprons are quickly becoming my favorite accessory.
I’m putting away the stilettos and pulling out more ballet flats and sandals, trading the Express Editors and pencil skirts for jeans and leggings, and reaching over the sheath dresses for the easy breezy frocks in the back of my closet. I’m trying to figure out some tricks for being casual and practical (two words I’d never use to describe my style) while still feeling like myself. And without a major wardrobe overhaul.
The good news for you is that a lot of the things from the “work” side of my closet are now available for purchase on the Shop My Closet page! There’s still a lot of things I need to add, but it’s like selling your children, and I have to emotionally prepare myself to part with all of my favorite pieces.
Looking forward to what’s ahead — for my life and my style ;-)

  1. >Jeans and tee, I remember I need to buy more jeans because I am working as in badly needed. LOve the bangs, super cute like Asian women. Minimalistic style rules and matched with boots, nice idea.

  5. >Congrats on your new endeavor! What a fun new experience!I absolutely love this look, and I actually really look forward to seeing some more casual outfits because that is where I struggle the most. I wish my casual attire had more style…working on it!I know what you mean about letting go of your clothes. It's the hardest thing in the world for me. I took out like 10 tops last week that I hadn't work in forever and didn't even like much anymore, but because they were practically brand new and still really nice pieces, I was so sad to let them go.
