This outfit has recently become my uniform – proof that quality essentials – black pants, neutral blazer, white shirt and statement accessories (my current obsession is this Marc Coblen watch – you can change the bezel & straps for a new look. Too cool!) – is the foundation of an easy to wear wardrobe. 

Lately a demanding schedule has seen, more often than not, me defer to some variation of these pieces, which really helps on early morning tapings & bouncing between multiple sets, but comfortable & durable enough to handle playtime with my boys.

What are the pieces that you depend on again & again?
