As I was getting dressed today, I was reflecting on how I decide what I am going to wear. As a woman, we have many choices. Skirts, capris, pants, dresses, leggings, shorts, jackets and vests are some of the choices a woman has when she decides what to wear. Sometimes I let the weather be my guide. Is it grey and cloudy? Then I may want to wear something cozy, warm, and comfortable. Sometimes I decide to go against the weather. If it's cold and I am tired of wearing my good old standby black, I may choose to wear a bright colour. Sometimes it's a piece of jewellry that I want to build my wardrobe around. Sometimes it's a pair of shoes with a certain colour or look that I want to enhance. Am I dressing for work or for play? Getting dressed to go out with a friend or out on a date is fun!
It's far too easy to get into a rut and wear the same old, same old. Do you know what I'm saying? Buying a couple of new pieces of clothing or accessories can boost your mood and your wardrobe. Changing of the seasons always excites me, as that means I can start wearing different types of clothes (long pants vs. capris for example). The best part of clothes is I am able to express myself with colour and design and that always is a reflection of my mood.
What are you wearing today? What influenced your choice?
Have a great day, no matter what you decide to wear!
