I often plan my outfits, especially for work, the evening before. I don’t actually try them on, but I lay them out and think about the accessories I’ll add.
Occasionally on the morning of, something doesn’t work as hoped. Yesterday I found my dress was itchy, and this morning, I felt too, um, constrained (I blame the laundry!). When this happens, I prescribe myself a dose of Favorites.
|This isn’t today’s Favorites, but it’s a reliable go-to: denim ankle trousers and a no-iron white shirt.|
I stand in my closet and ask “What do I feel great in and love to wear?” I give no thought to how recently I wore it, or whether it’s new/trendy. Today I chose flowy wide leg trousers by Soft Surroundings, and a black long-sleeved tee from GAP’s Body collection. A necklace and bracelet, and out the door. I’m still wearing all these things as I type here at 7PM.
I am moving more and more toward this simple model of dressing. It keeps my closet much more manageable and affordable, and allows me to splurge on delightful shoes. I am taking fewer Outfit of the Day photos, because there’s a lot of repetition. You don’t want to see all my black tees, do you? ☺
