Some things in life are as easy as black and white. Simplicity is my new go-to for most things in life. To me, my life in so many areas is crazy and busy, and it can be overwhelming.
My daily life includes work, family, a social calendar, and a side business from home. Trying to keep all the plates spinning and keeping myself looking good has been a challenge each morning for me.’
I decided to try a new idea to me and that would include keeping my wardrobe super simple and on budget. A basic pair of blank pants and a basic white shirt and you have your foundation for a great new wardrobe.
Black pants and white shirts can be purchased cheaply from garage sales, thrift stores, online, or in the store. Add any color jacket or overshirt with a scarf or beads and you are all set.
Check out my video on how I mix and match a simple few jackets with my black and white foundation.
Let us not forget to have a pair of basic black or just a pair of comfortable basic black shoes. We all need a good pair of shoes that at the end of the day our feet are not hurting.
FitVillei is a great shoe company that reached out to me with a 30% discount. Their shoes have become my favorite comfortable shoe. Check out the link in the description for a discount code if you wanted to take a look at their website.
Thanks for stopping by and I trust this quick video will give you some great tips to refresh and or start a new basic and simple wardrobe.
Now there is a sandwich and then there is a sandwich. Growing up we were sent to school with a PB and J, a cheese sandwich, or a bologna and cheese sandwich at best. There were no frills about it and usually it came with an apple and 2 cookies, and you purchased your milk from the school lunchroom.
I remember when I started working full time and I had my first experience of going out to lunch with the girls….and I got a sandwich from a deli. WOW…. what a difference from the school lunches I was so used to.
From there on end, I was hooked on wanting to purchase a really good sandwich to enjoy on my lunch break. The problem is now…. deli sandwiches are costly and as much as they taste wonderful….my budget and my wallet do not like spending that kind of money daily.
So, what is a girl to do…. go back to cheese sandwiches and an apple every day……. No, Wait! Come and check out my ideas for a really good sandwich that you can make for yourself that is not only delicious but great for the wallet too.
Let’s not forget about also doing a little meal prep to start our week off right. Again, to save money on the wallet and still enjoy some great food, go and pick up one whole chicken to cook up and make several meals with it. One chicken can feed a family of 1 – 4 for several hearty meals for the week.
I have attached my video of all these wonderful ideas as well as my homemade coleslaw recipe!
