Living in San Francisco has made it really easy to fall into a bit of a style rut. The weather is the same every day, year round and the style tends to be very casual which means jeans, a sweater and ankle boots or sandals tends to be the uniform of choice. I fully embraced this shift after first moving and swapped out my heels for flats and dresses for denim but after nearly 3 years, I’ve been feeling like I’m in a little slump and making an effort to add some oomph back into my everyday uniform and look a little more pulled together than what I’d usually wear for a day in the office or errands on the weekend.
But let’s be real, I don’t actually want to put much more effort in. The jeans and a sweater combo has worked for so long because it’s just easy and whenever life tends to get a bit crazy, I don’t want to spend much time or energy thinking about what to wear. Enter this simple silk dress from Everlane. It works for all seasons, can be dressed up or down with different shoes and accessories and requires zero thought. Win! I’ve also been able to pack it for work travel, including a hot trip to New York City, yet it can also hold its own amongst SF’s foggy chill with a jacket layered over and paired with ankle boots vs. sandals.
Do you have an easy everyday outfit go to?
