Lately, I have been in one of those moods where nothing that I put on looks right. The sad thing is that I have tons of clothes, but every once in awhile I just can’t seem to find the right outfit. This could also have something to do with my BF who likes to poke fun at some of my outfits. He isn’t too keen on things like belting outside of a cardigan and other stylistic details that I see other bloggers do and try to mimic.
Perhaps I have been eating too much Thanksgiving, but yesterday I wanted something that was a little dressy, but comfortable and unfussy. I tried on one top, but it didn’t skim in the places that I wanted it too. I tried on another outfit, but it was too warm. I tried on another and it felt too contrived.
I tried on another and another and another.
Some of them I didn’t like, some of them my BF didn’t like. (I pulled out a green trapezoid top to wear with skinny jeans and he remarked that it looked like a maternity top. So not what I was going for.) Ultimately, I wound up with something that both looked good and made me feel good.
Do you have a Go-To outfit when nothing seems to be working? Tomorrow, I will be back to the classroom, so the options will be limited to professional clothing. But, limited options isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it helps me from feeling overwhelmed and lost by giving me some sense of structure or “rules” to adhere to.
