Do you ever have those mornings where you panic and you suddenly think “ I have NOTHING to wear!” That’s how I felt this morning…I really think I need to get in the habit of planning ahead and laying my outfits out. The worst is when you try on four or five outfits and then you want to set your closet on fire.
However…when in doubt I usually raid my husband’s wardrobe. I’m not sure if it annoys him or not…but I’m pretty sure when we said our wedding vows “ you can also borrow my clothes” was included. My office is kind of tricky to dress for- it’s always permanently FREEZING. We have a warehouse with all of our clothing products so I suppose the warehouse workers get hot from moving around but then I’m freezing in the middle of July (it was like this last year too) and bringing sweaters to work. It’s a little too risky to just wear a sleeveless shirt without dressing in layers so I opted for a quick and easy outfit.
I LOVE my husband’s flannel and it smells like him (is that weird? It’s probably weird. I’ll embrace it). I pulled out my phone this morning and immediately looked up my style idol- Alexa Chung. Everything she seems to pull off is so effortless. It looks like she just rolled out of bed, happened to find the perfect outfit and threw it on. My life is not this fab. I love how she mixes up menswear with a little bit of a girly touch and really embraces closet staples, like white tees, button ups, and loafers. It might seem boring at first to just collect these kinds of outfit staples but you’re really making your wardrobe much more diverse- and you can start mixing and matching to make your wardrobe appear and feel that much bigger.
