If Olivia Pope was a SAHM, What would she wear?

Watching Scandal and thinking of how I used to dress like Olivia (albeit slightly plumper) when I was working, tailored separates, fabulous coats and bags.

I need to get out of this yoga pants/joggers/hoody rut I've got myself into and claw back a bit of style.

Anyone with outfit ideas out there? All help gratefully received.

An ill fitting next hoody and her other half's track pants ... guess not

Nope, That's what I'm wearing right now though smile

That's a tough one. She's vary pared down, clean lines but feminine tailoring, luxe fabric and rarely prints. Her colours are neutral, ivory, charcoal, tan, sometimes a blush pink or khaki..... I don't think she would wear jeans or jeggings, maybe a tailored trouser with good knitwear or a knee length skirt with good leather boots.....? She's definitely more Massimo Dutti than boden.....

Oope, posted too quickly. I think I'll start floating about in silk pjs.

I could get on board with those silky pj bottoms smile

You're right butterflies, It's a hard look to translate into everyday wear.
