Hello everyone! My name is Fran and I blog over at Franish. I'm so excited to be guest posting for Audrey while she's busy traveling and being important ;). I started blogging a little less than a year ago as a way to stay motivated to try out new things when getting dressed even though my job puts certain safety restrictions on what I can wear at work. I work in a research lab and the rules are that my legs have to be covered, I have to wear flat shoes, and I have to wear a lab coat over my clothes. So even though I can't wear heels at work, and certain shirts won't work under a lab coat, there are two items in my closet that I can change up at will and allows me to keep my outfits interesting.
A blogging friend of mine used to work at J. Crew and she said that they had a 3- piece rule - they had to be wearing at least three items of clothing while at work. A striped shirt and jeans can be somewhat mundane, but add a scarf and you're on your way to effortless layering. I have too many scarves to name, but I do have some favorites. A leopard scarf, a flannel scarf, a polka dot scarf and a solid scarf is the start to a great collection of scarves. You'll always look chic (and comfy) with minimal effort. Again, you don't have to drop a ton on scarves - Forever 21, H&M, and Target have great and inexpensive selections.
Thank you for letting me ramble at you! I'm a huge fan of Audrey and have learned so much from her, so I'm honored that she asked me to post for her.
I love that 3 piece rule idea. I'm totally finding that to be true, and with the cooler weather here begging you to wear scarves, it's much easier to do! Thanks, Fran! Check out more of Fran's outfits at Franish right now.
