Intelligent Dressing. Why on earth did I name this post that? Well, to be honest, I just thought the outfit looked intelligent. There is something about wearing a tie around your neck that lends to the belief – I went to an ivy league school. Okay, so not in real life. If it is anything like other college campuses, those kids are wearing jeans/work-out pants, t-shirts, and hoodies. But isn’t the make believe so much more fun? I have loved the tie on women look since seeing Elle Woods rock it in Legally Blonde. “What, like it’s hard?” Little early 00’s quoting! I am queen of dropping movie lines and annoyingly asking which movie it is from! Mmmm kay, back to the post. I have most recently been inspired by the tie after seeing it from the Saint Laurent runway show. It is so incredibly sharp and classic! And yes, it screams I mean business. This particular removable ASOS tie is under $10 and can pretty much work with any button-up. Just make sure you button all the way up to the top! Another awesome way to style this look would be with a wide leg pant, blouse tucked in, and tie around the neck. So chic!
side note – I am off to Houston for the weekend to help with my mothers non-profit – Grammy’s Cookie Convoy (check it out). She sends thousands of cookies to the soldiers overseas (5,000 at a time) as a “hug from home” so they know they are not forgotten! She is such an inspirational woman and I always get excited to help and also a little overwhelmed with emotion at the number of volunteers who show up to help and the stories they have of their own kin fighting overseas or personal stories of wars past. My mom is touching so many lives and I only hope one day I can be half the woman she is! Sorry, had to take a moment to brag about my mom and share her non-profit! She so deserves all of the accolades.
