Lately, I’ve been wearing more color and more outfits that are a bit out of my comfort zone. But, to my surprise, I’m thoroughly enjoying this change of pace. Granted, I still wear my black leggings and kimonos faithfully, but even then I try to add a little pizazz to my day to day “uniform”. The pizazz can be as simple as an avant-garde piece of jewelry, or a colorful lip. As long as it gives my outfit some umph, I’m here for it!

I’m embracing change, figuring out how to make certain trends work for me, and most importantly, I’m having fun. I have a new found joy when I’m putting together outfits or shopping for new pieces. It’s quite refreshing.

I think every once in a while, everyone’s wardrobe needs to be refreshed. Granted, I’ve been known to take a minimalistic approach towards my wardrobe. I’ve written about it several times, and I still practice a lot of minimal wardrobe techniques. However, having the same wardrobe – with a few new additions here and there – season after season can cause you to enter into a style rut. This happened to me. Again, each season I thoughtfully add new pieces. But I began to notice the bulk of my wardrobe has been the same for a very l o n g time.

Now, don’t take this as me telling you to purchase an entirely new wardrobe four times a year. That’s definitely not where I’m going with this. I’m just saying there’s nothing wrong with gradually refreshing your wardrobe. Being in a style rut is no fun. It’s uninspiring and can easily cause your mood and productivity to plummet. Trust me; the right clothes can do wonders for your mood AND your productivity! When I feel good about what I’m wearing I get a lot more done. I’m also more inspired to try things like a new lip color, or even a new hairstyle.
So tell me, when’s the last time you refreshed your wardrobe? Let me know!
Thanks, as always, for reading and commenting and until next time, be blessed and stay safe.
Love & light…xo!

Oh I love this dress on you! Sometimes it feels good to clean out our closets and fill them with some fresh new pieces. I have things I love and will probably always love, but plenty I just feel so-so about. I think the goal should always be to work towards a closet you love.

Thanks so much, Lydia! And I agree. A good closet clean-out is always a great idea!
You look fabulous in florals! I love this dress on you. I love that the floral print is on a larger scale it makes it more fun and chic! And I agree with you a closet refresher is always a good idea. And it’s fun to step out of your comfort zone every once and awhile.
Thanks so much, Jackie! I felt amazing, which is always a great thing.
