OK, let's be real: how many of you "plan" your outfits? I mean, I sometimes do - if I have something special on my calendar, I'll pull together a look the night before. But a lot of evenings, getting dressed the next day is not a priority - I'd rather spend the time with a new book or watching Rizzoli & Isles (Don't laugh. A female buddy cop shop based in Boston? What's not to love?). That's why I'm really into basic pieces that can go with anything - you know, so when I blearily stick my arm into my closet at 6:30AM (pre-coffee, no less), I can find something comfortable but chic, throw it on, and manage to look appropriate for my day (always work, sometimes an evening event). I also love versatile pieces - like these suede boots. I'm wearing them over-the-knee in these photos, but the knee folds down for a less edgy style, as well. Early morning post-Netflix marathon? Handled.
