3 ways to pick your weekday casual in a New York minute

Relaxed, sophisticated style. That pretty much sums up the ideal wardrobe situation for a girl on the go. But it’s not always easy looking effortlessly chic when you need to be dressed and out the door in 10 minutes. Balancing a full-time career as a creative director and managing a fashion blog on the side can be a challenge – especially when you try to squeeze world travel into the mix. I’d say I’m pretty happy with the balance I’ve found so far, but I’d be lying if I said I walk out the door every day feeling great about the outfit I grabbed. I mean loose jeans and a raggedy sweater from ’09? What was I thinking. I often try to share tips on work life balance as I know many of you understand the struggle is real.

But it’s right around the corner, and for those of you who don’t want to live in flip-flops for the next 8 months, listen up. For starters, whoever invented flip-flops is really getting on my nerves. I’m not saying theres not a nice pair out there… somewhere… maybe. But seriously? Neon pink plastic and some cheap floral foam sole? You can do better. Don’t even get me started on Old Navy $2 steals. Let’s be real… you know they’re awful. So why are so many people die-hard fans? Perhaps their easy? Cheap? To be honest, the reasoning evades me. But sometimes the alternative to sandals in the summer really can be a bit of a struggle to make things looked balanced with the lighter summer attire and closed up styles. And while boots aren’t a completely new trend in the warmer months in …
