When I have to be somewhere early (i.e. work), I try to have at least a vague idea of an outfit the night before. More often than I would like, this planning doesn't happen, which makes for exasperated mornings involving changing multiple times, running late, and feeling dissatisfied with my final ensemble.
But sometimes, just sometimes, everything falls into place. Yesterday was such a morning. I put very little thought into my clothes, left the house (on time) in the first and only look I tried on, and found myself happy with the result.
Staying true to my personal style while dressing appropriately for work can be a fine line to walk, but I thought this look had a nice mixture of color, pattern, texture and layering without being over-the-top.
