“You’ve got nice clothes, so wear them.”
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve told friends and clients this. As I look at my photos this week, it’s pounding in my head over and over and over again like a drum beat. I did, actually, push myself a little, and put together a couple of skirt outfits, and I loved the lace detail blouse with the fur vest look, but for the most part, I stuck to super comfy looks that used the black tee, black crew neck sweater, and jeans that are in my 8 pieces.
These staples and more laid back looks make sense since I work from home, but I want to keep wearing the dressier items I have even when there’s no “reason” to. Who cares if I wear a tulle skirt to the grocery store?
That being said, I love how cuffing sleeves and pant legs and using a different completer piece can totally change the look of basic pieces. Add a statement necklace, and you’re immediately more polished.
The choice to stick to those 8 pieces and put together outfits using at least one is going to stretch me as the month goes on- I’m excited to get more creative!
