SAHMonday: Blush Tunic and Olive Pants

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

The Power of the Outfit Completer

Let’s talk a minute about how to make a basic outfit feel special.  I’ve always been a big believer in adding a third piece or an “outfit completer” to a top and jeans.  You may have already noticed but all of my SAHMonday outfits use this formula.

My tassel necklace is the third piece in today’s outfit.  Some other “outfit completer” ideas are a cardigan, printed scarf, statement necklace, statement earrings, utility jacket, quilted vest, denim jacket, pendant necklace, leopard print belt and printed flats.  For more outfit completer ideas check out this post.

Today’s SAHMonday outfit formula utilizes one of my go-to favorite color combos – blush pink with olive green. All you need is a blush top, olive jeans or jeggings and gold ballet flats.  Add in an outfit completer like this tassel necklace for an instant outfit.

    I’m a huge believer in the “completer” piece. Since I no longer work I don’t dress like I used to in the corporate world but still like to look and feel put together. I have developed a pretty basic wardrobe that I can wear any day or anywhere and just a piece to in order to have the “complete” look. In fact, today I wore a black long sleeve tee, black leggings and jean jacket, I added a pretty turquoise necklace to amp up the look. When I got home I just removed the jacket and necklace and still feel comfortable. If we go anywhere later, I’ll just add back the jacket and necklace.
