Stylist Secret: Leather Hole Punch

Any personal wardrobe stylist worth her salt has a kit of essentials that help ensure clients look their best.  Why not create your own at home kit to combat any potential wardrobe malfunctions?  Common kits include the usual suspects: lint rollers, safety pins, a sewing kit, double-stick tape, Static Guard, etc.  

One item that I haven’t seen on other’s lists but that is indispensable is a Leather Hole Punch ToolWhether modifying a belt for a spot-on fit or adjusting a sandal strap on those Stuart Weitzman’s you just bought, I love how this nifty, inexpensive gadget can both increase comfort and give a professional finish.

Transitional Twill Topper

 The Cotton U-neck - Everlane

It can stay chilly in the Midwest until well into May but many of us are already thinking about spring and some transitional outfits.  The clean lines and beautiful drape of this cafe au lait twill coat lend it to both office and casual wear.  Styled here as a weekend outfit, I paired the coat with my new favorite jeans and a black tee.  The olive bootie-styled sandals look great with the blacks and denim but will be useful come summer paired with navy, tan or cream. The fun fringe bucket bag finishes the look!
