It’s been a year since I left the regular working world and I still find it hard to break out of the boring, comfy clothes routine. Work out gear, sweatpants, old tees – that’s pretty much how I roll these days. I have to get better with that, switch things up from time to time, especially when I’m two seconds from falling asleep. Late nights and early mornings can make for an easy sweatpants day but doing that only makes you feel even more tired. The same way makeup can make you look more awake than you are, the right outfit can make you look more put together than you feel.
Enter my slouchy tee.
Blue Slouchy T-Shirt: DIY / White Ribbed Tank: Old Navy / Sweatheart Jeans: Old Navy / Black Sneakers: Reebok
I actually made this a few years back from a cheap t-shirt from Micheal’s and some iron on letters. I put it on when I want to feel a little sassy and channel my inner-80’s baby. To keep things PG, I layered it over a tank. These jeans are a style step up from the yoga pants but I just can’t give up my sneakers. (My little girl’s a runner!)
Blue Silk Scarf: Goodwill / Silver Drop Earrings: Beya / Horn Necklace: Forever 21
One of the things I love about accessories is that they can dress up an outfit in two seconds. Scarves are perfect for the days when I’m not in the mood to do anything with my hair (my curly puff was getting kinda of old!). Throw on some earrings and a long, pendant necklace and I actually look like I’m going somewhere other than my daughter’s Story Time session at the library.
So tell me, how do you get out of your fashion rut?
