Styling MY Core Uniform


 I have recently been spending so much time in the studio
that I have been a little …  shall we say 
off my mark when it comes to
 getting dressed for the day.
IE ... I spend most all my day in workout wear.
So I knew it was time today to pull together another version of 
a daily uniform.

We haven't had much winter here in Southern California
so a simple denim tunic and jeans fit the bill.
I can again … get done what I need to at home in my studio
and then
with the power of accessories 
go out in style.

For this first look  I have added in  my very favorite Tamera Beardsley Design howlite bracelets
and
 one of my original pendant necklaces
with my newest Antique market find … 
my basket purse.

 For the second look I added my favorite shawl
 that I still love to pull out
for instant style and drama.
Pairing it with my Panama hat 
finishes off the look perfectly.

 I pulled out my Chanel meets Anthropologie jacket
last seen HERE
 paired the jacket with my leopard turban
and
 my collected antique necklaces.

For this last look
I pulled out my latest Chinatown find
and
 paired the kimono with my
turquoise howlite necklaces and bracelets
finishing the ensemble off
with the same basket purse.


Now I have four solid looks 
for my core working uniform
for my week in the studio.
And
 now I know I can still dash out 
quick as can be 
by just pulling on some well chosen  accessories.

I already feel better about working this next week
knowing I won't be trapping myself at home 
with the  ….
I don't know what to wear
for a quick dash out.

I now know exactly what I can wear!

  3. I apologize but I missed to become a FB fan earlier... with or without a giveaway, I should have done that a lot earlier!
    Your bracelet is beautiful and I have entered.
    I love the basic navy blue tunic+jeans but your styling versions are amazing. I cannot even decide which is my favourite.

  13. Okay, you've just raised the bar AGAIN!! First of all, I need your uniform!! This post was a BRILLIANT tutorial on the art of accessorizing. Clear, concise, artistic and do-able. It's been on my mind as well, this uniform thing. Secondly, I love the idea about writing the blog you want to read as a vehicle for transformation. Definitely food for thought!!

    Keep spreading the joy. :-) Your beautiful artistry is such a pleasure and inspiration. XXXOOO

  14. I believe it is important to look somewhat put together when leaving the house, and you pull it off beautifully. Spent way too much time perusing your blog this weekend and really enjoyed. Looking forward to the next installment.

  15. You, my dear friend, make it look so easy, and you look like the front page model. Every look is spectacular, elegant, glamorous, and says, this is Tamera! Your accessories are To. Die. For.
    I have yet to wear my (ever precious) howlite turquoise bracelet without getting compliments to no end. I'm definitely entering to share one with Tori. (although I plan on purchasing one for her birthday).

  16. What a perfect uniform that lends itself to so many fabulous looks! The bracelet is stunning.

  17. I love how creative you are with your base outfit! I am enamoured with your designs and the way your carry yourself in photos. The turquoise colour is really so beautiful and bright...it really connects with me emotionally (in the sense that it evokes memories of a favourite aunt). Isn't that funny that colour and style can be like that?

  18. LOVE the tunic outfit with the jacket- stunning! x

  19. Love, love, love your pairings! The bucket bag is some character and you pulled it off perfectly!

  22. I'm already a fan on FB. Thank you always for your inspiration. I love it. I miss the days when people dressed up to "go to town". Life is so much busier/fastpaced in these modern times...but who says you can't take your every day uniform and dress it up a little. LOVE all the looks you've come up with with yours. Thanks! crapo(at)shaw(dot)ca

  29. I advocate a uniform as well and love being able to dress this way since retiring. There are so many versions and I love all the changes you have done to yours. I have entered for the bracelet. Turquoise is my all-time go-to accessory.

  30. I'm entering the giveaway! What a gorgeous bracelet! I'm loving your style, Tamera. What a great idea to use your at home basics to build some outfits for going out. I could definitely use that system on the weekends, where I enjoy a lot of at home time, punctuated with quick trips here and there!

  31. I love how you have mixed up the accessories and layers over your simple work outfit to create such colourful and chic looks.

  32. A jeans and a tunic can be so simple but you look maximum good dear Tamera! I like dark blue and it makes a wonderful silhouette and looks very elegant. Your necklace has such a nice color and fits perfectly. Love also your glasses on the first pictures.
    AND your gorgeous smile.. wonderful!

    wish you a wonderful week
    and many greetings from Germany

  34. Again, beautiful basic outfit and glamorous, interesting outfits using accessories. Your Howlite jewelry is wonderful. I would like a close up look at the necklaces. I especially love the one with the basic outfit, but also like the vintage array of necklaces. I love your talent for mixing and accessorizing. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

  36. What you have, you can't teach: unlimited creativity, a beautiful face, mind and heart and a bangin' bod! What a treat to watch you go through your own styling paces. I learn something new every time I pop by.

  37. Love having a daily uniform, it's just so much easier to accessorise rather than build up a full outfit from scratch each day.

  38. I love me a daily uniform as well - makes life sooo much easier - and yours are so glam, I hesitate to call it a uniform. I loved all of them!!

  41. Hi Tamera! I want to thank you for doing your part to UP THE STYLE of Southern California because as both you and I know it's pretty much just workout gear and beach wear! You are forever a source of beautiful inspiration and I am taking your blogging series Quite Seriously! Thank you. I'd love to take part in the give-away!

  43. If howlite lowers stress, I'd better enter your giveaway. Do you make anything like a whole howlite suit of armor?
    Loving the pre-planned accessories to Diva the errands.

  44. I would love to win one of your bracelets. I admired Adrienne's when she wore it after meeting you. With Spring and Summer coming up I love to wear turquoise jewelry. I have earrings but no bracelet and I think this would go with most of my wardrobe!
    Thank you for this opportunity.
