After wearing the striped skirt with the navy blouse & pumps to work – I changed parts of the outfit that evening to attend a Jr. League meeting. On top I swapped into a t-shirt & jean jacket and on my feet I switched the shoes to my comfortable brown wedges.
I often get asked about wardrobe basics and starting a work wardrobe. I’m going to work on a One Suitcase (hopefully by end of the month) centered around starting a work wardrobe from scratch. But in the meantime I found a really cool site called Into Mind that has a great blog post that helps you diagnose why you don’t have anything to wear in your closet. In the post you follow a little flowchart answering questions and you get to end points like, “You have no idea what’s in your closet” or “You have no definition of your personal style” or “Your wardrobe does not reflect your lifestyle.” And then based on your result there are links lower down to an array of posts on how to remedy your issue. Pretty nifty!
And since I’m linking to stuff – ShopStyle asked me to put together a spring link board so I took the items from my February shopping wishlist and picked out both super expensive and reasonably affordable versions of all the items. If you’re interested – you can find the ShopStyle board here. (Although it looks like stores have changed their inventory since I put that together a month ago so some of the items I picked are missing.)
