When it comes to our style it’s all too easy to fall into a rut.
A string of busy weeks, work & family commitments, impending deadlines and other life demands can mean our style ends up taking a back seat. Who really has time to plan the perfect outfit when you have a work presentation to prepare, kids to drive to school, a house to tidy, a ton of emails to respond too and a to do list as long as your arm?
Maybe you’ve gained weight recently and instead of taking a cold hard look at your new body size in the mirror it’s easier not to think about your appearance and throw on some baggy clothes instead.
Maybe you’ve been feeling stagnant in your personal or professional life, wanting to make some changes but not knowing where to begin, and your wardrobe has become a reflection of your inner feelings.
Maybe you dread getting dressed in the morning because you feel everything in your wardrobe is outdated or boring. You feel like somewhere along the way your inner self got lost in the stresses of life and you don’t know how to create a wardrobe that connects to the real you.
Do any of these read familiar? In times like this we tend to grab for the nearest pair of jeans and comfy sweater or opt for the old favorites we’ve worn a million times. We want something safe, comfortable, convenient and easy. We tend to detach from the fact we don’t look our best and tell ourselves we can deal with it later or it’s not important for us to look good anyway because we are to old / overweight / busy / past our prime / you fill in the gap.
