As you probably know, we recently moved house. That means (I think I’d forgotten this) every single Q-tip from the old house has to leave and find a place in the new house. That goes for shoes, tights, scarves and earrings too, who knew?

My sequined Old Navy skirt has had dozens of wears. It doesn’t wrinkle, it’s hand washable, and dries in a few hours. That’s the kind of basic you need when everything is in bags, boxes and trunks! A cozy ASOS tee, good for work and weekends, gets polished up with a suede belt. A scarf can be tossed in my bag. Red lipstick is in the purse already, and away we go. Not the chic-est look I’ve ever pulled off, but it’s neat and deliberate.
How do you dress amidst physical uproar? Have a very favorite knit dress, or ponte trousers, or reliable dark jeans?
