When was the last time you really got dressed up to go to work (or to do nothing at all?) It can be really easy to get into a fashion rut. When you are pressed for time in the morning, the most logical option is to grab whatever is clean, ensure that each piece is (somewhat) in the same color palette, throw on some comfy shoes and dash out the door. If you work from home, it can be so tempting to lounge in your pajamas all day. Well tonight, I challenge you to put some effort into planning an outfit for tomorrow that will brighten your spirits, dust the cobwebs off your closet, and expand your fashion horizons.
Your wardrobe is an easy way to make your feel better about yourself. It can transform your mood, accentuate your best features, and broadcast your personality to the world. Before you go to bed tonight, carefully go through your closet and put together a really fierce outfit to wear tomorrow. If it is snowing outside, rather than trying to blend in with the weather and wearing grey, blacks, and sad colors, try throwing on a bright green or yellow sweater. Or if you work somewhere more conservative, try wearing a deep purple or navy blue top or sweater. It will make you smile!
As you are looking through your wardrobe, don’t skip over items that you are “saving for a special occasion.” Everyday is a special occasion! This challenge isn’t about going out and buying something new. It is about re-purposing what you already have. No matter how many times you have said “I have nothing to wear,” I guarantee that there are some gems in your closet waiting to be re-discovered. If you need some inspiration, check out my fashion Pinterest board. I tend to go for more classic items with a boho/creative twist. I would love to build a capsule wardrobe and stock up on pieces that I love and that I can mix and match from season to season.
