I’m really enjoying going through my spring clothing. I’m falling in love with my clothes all over again. Some pieces I’ve forgotten about and it’s almost as if they are new. It’s like Christmas! Now is a good opportunity to go through your clothing inventory and purge old/ unwanted items and make room for new ones. This is a great way to update your closet without buying an whole new wardrobe. Though I would not turn down an entire closet full of new clothes
Hope you are having a great week! XOXO
Generally, I find it a little challenging to get dressed for work. I want to be able to show my personality but still keep my attire work friendly. I’m also in my late 20s and want to look youthful but not like I’m trying to be too young. On the other hand, I also want to look sophisticated but not older than my age. Today I found it especially hard to get dressed since I had to wake up earlier than usual. My go to piece when I don’t have any inspiration is a skirt. They are easy to wear and I was always feel feminine and confident when I wear one. A little strange, huh? In the summer I like to feel the rustling of the fabric and the warmth from the sun on my legs. In the winter I like wearing tights and dressing up my legs. That’s actually the best way to fake perfect legs. You can’t see any bruises, marks or any other unsightly things.
So, tell me what is your go to piece when getting dressed when you’re short on time or don’t have the energy to get dressed.
This high waist Anne Klein skirt sits comfortably above my waist without digging into my flesh. It’s also the perfect way to hide my Post Thanksgiving day bloat. I really like the details of the shirt and the different patterns combined. I’m also rocking the socks with heels. I started liking the style after seeing it on mannequins in the windows at Club Monaco. I was afraid of channeling Ugly Betty (Loved that show!) but proceeded with caution. I think that ankle socks and heels would like nice with slim fitting cropped pants, strappy sandals or even peep toes too. If you’re trying the style I suggest wearing thin knit socks. Thick socks won’t be as comfortable or look as nice.
Normally, you can’t pay me to wear red but during this time of year I find the color quite appealing. In fear of looking like an eyesore I coupled the skirt with a neutral colored chunky knit sweater. I love this sweater. I foresee this item in heavy rotation in future get-ups this season. And these boots are so comfortable. They may not look it but looks are deceiving. I could run in these boots if needed. I had been on the hunt for boots like these and finally snagged a pair. Yay!
