Do you have a go-to outfit for summer? Something you can wear anywhere from three to ten times in one week. It’s sort of like when you find a new song on Spotify and play it on repeat for 3 weeks solid before getting the tiniest bit sick of it. I always end up having one or two things each season that I live in. Most of the time I know it within the first few moments of putting it on.
I got this Old Navy dress when it was supposed to be spring. When it arrived mid-April it was 30 degrees outside and raining. I tried it on, did a few twirls in front of my mirror and felt great. I knew this would be the summer dress for me.
When I was in high school I had an outfit schedule. My friends and I didn’t want to repeat an outfit for at least 3 weeks. We strategically planned when we would borrow one another’s clothes and absolutely make sure there was no cross over. Looking back I cringe at how ridiculous this was.
My high school self would cringe at the site of my current closet. It’s much more sparse, but full of things I love, which I wear as an often as I want.
I may wear the same black dress 5 days in a row because I like it, I feel pretty it in, and it’s comfortable. I no longer waste time thinking about the last time I wore something.
For me, that’s what fashion is really about is: simplicity, feeling beautiful and comfortable in my skin. If I can accomplish those things, I consider it a win!
