BFBN: fashion emergency

It's "Tips and Tricks" day in the Babywise Friendly Blog Network and our topic is Emergency Preparedness.  I racked my brain trying to find something (anything!) to post about.

If you look on our Emergency Preparedness Pinterest board, you'll notice a lot of interesting and helpful things - uses for duct tape, foods that last forever, budget tips, 72 hour kits, etc.  These are all very useful, practical, and necessary pieces of information.  I legitimately have nothing to contribute of that nature, so bear with me.

I decided I'd write about clothes.  I know, fashion is something I'm soo well-versed in, but this post is mostly for me.

Sometimes fashion can be an emergency.  Not a real life emergency with actual stress, but an Alicia-Silverstone-in-Clueless kind of emergency.  An I-have-to-leave-in-10-minutes-and-I-have-no-idea-what-to-wear emergency.  This has been so hard for me lately, mostly because I'm not quite back to my pre-baby body so getting dressed is annoying, frustrating, and it takes forever.  I'm all about wearing t-shirts, but every once and a while, it's nice to know you can still look decent.

So, I looked through some of my pins on my style board and picked a few fall outfits.  These are basic outfits with very basic pieces that I could mimic.  Maybe if I could keep these ideas in mind, I wouldn't stand in front of my closet for 20 minutes, thumbing through my clothes.

A white tee, striped shirts/sweaters, denim/patterned button down shirts, jeans/pants, scarves, a blazer - simple items and simple outfits. 

What are your go-to items/outfits when you're in a crunch?

  1. I was never much of a scarf girl but I have definitely changed my mind over the past year! A scarf can "finish" any outfit... t-shirt, skinny jeans or leggings and a scarf. Done!

    1. Yes, I completely agree! So ready for scarf weather! :)

  2. Nice information regarding the emergency outfit, but suppose a person love to wear 100% pashmina Scarf due to the winter, but didn't have it, What to do?
    In that case, just take the pashmina cloth of any other cloth, fold it two to three times... now the scarf is ready...
