OOTD - The Everyday Basic Outfit

As an at-home mother of two, I feel like I tend to have a formula in the way that I dress.  One of my constant goals is to break away from that formula.  I really have a tendency to get into a rut when it comes to getting dressed.  This may have a lot to do with the fact that I am constantly running behind in the morning.  I always have the best of intentions when planning out the timing of my day, but inevitably some minor catastrophe happens and the whole thing is thrown off.  Then I find myself standing in my closet with five minutes left until I need to leave for wherever I am headed, and one child is asking her 200th question of the morning, and the other is clomping around in a pair of my high heels.  (Sound familiar to anyone?)  So, at this particular moment of my day, any sort of outfit inspiration goes right out the window in favor of the quick and easy solution.  Back to the formula.  

For me, the formula is a pair of dark skinny jeans, a solid color top, and my all-time favorite flats.  The last step is to throw on some jewelry (preferably a bold necklace to give the illusion that some thought went into my look) and I am done.  Today was exactly that day.  Pictured below is specifically what I wore today, a picture perfect "formulaic outfit".

Do you have an outfit formula?  If so, share it!
