People see my “image” on Facebook, or Instagram, or even here, my blog, and think they know what my day to day life looks like….
In their minds, my life goes a little like this: I sleep till 10, play dress-up in my closet, have a hair & makeup team show up at my house, then frolic around town with a photographer in tow, head to a radio station maybe once a week where I prerecord my daily talk show, and then I drink wine and eat fabulous meals with a handsome man, or head to a elitist charity event.
UMMMMMMM. NO. NOT IN THE LEAST.
Here’s the reality: My days begin quite early by walking a 47 pound pitbull for, at least, 30 minutes, followed by a quick breakfast, maybe a pilates session or a trip to my apartment gym. After that, its time to hit the pavement: Grind away at emails, work meetings all over town, or strategically planning what outfits I want to share on my blog and then photographing them with my blog photographer. Another midday dog walk happens, followed by lunch on the run…usually “to go” and eating it 10 minutes before I begin a 4 hour radio show from 3-7pm (yes, I am actually there LIVE every single day!). Its back home to walk Fancy, and make a quick 10 minute wardrobe change, and if I’m lucky and our schedules align, its time for a late dinner with a tall, dark, handsome man, or make a 15 minute pit stop at a charity event…then follow-up on emails again, one last dog walk to wind down, and its time to hit the sack…Yes, I’m quite the earlybird to bed…say, 1030pm or so.
I tell you all this because my daily M-F outfit planning is VERY IMPORTANT. I need a look that can take me from 10am-9pm, so finding those hero pieces that can go from day to night is crucial. Take this lightweight Nasty Gal sweater: When I leave the house in the AM, I can pair it with a distressed boyfriend denim, my go-to flats, and a big handbag that carries everything I need for the day. But when I leave the radio station and head out for the night, I want it to feel more dressed up, and with some quick changes, its a whole new look: I can pair the sweater with a dressier short or skirt, swipe on some deep plum lips, lace up some sassy heels, and swap out my oversized tote for a clutch…and VOILA!
What’s the one hero piece that you reach for when you need to go from meetings to martinis or the boardroom to the bar?!
