As Virus, Inc.‘s resident Baby Strat, I’m not regularly called out to pitches and presentations anymore, which means that more often than not I’m at work in an oversized sweater, skinnies/leggings, and flats. But sometimes, I’m re-commissioned for active service, which requires a little more sartorial effort.
VSCO Cam is a revelation.
…the bulk of which, to be honest, is spent on my hair. :))
Considering that on a daily basis I overthink everything else, my closet is full of no-brainer basics (in “boring” colors) which, true to form, I manage to still agonize over in the morning. There are days, though, when playing the lottery with my wardrobe pays off, and the items I pull out in a mad dash somehow come together into what I would think is a perfect office-to-evening ensemble.

It’s an argument for classics over trends–“couldn’t be bothered” pinnings and underpinnings (yep, I actually gave those some thought too, thanks to this article) that, paired with the right attitude (and maybe a slightly-impractical camel-hued coat), are still guaranteed to stand out in a sea of Forever 21 jewelled hues. (Not that I don’t love F21.)
Moral of the (ten-second) story? Sometimes, basics are boring. But sometimes, these “undercover” hues can be the best provocation.
Until next time!
