Off Day

Hope you don't mind, there isn't a new outfit today. I'm taking a PTO day from work and plan on lounging around in comfy clothes {ie yoga pants, uggs and perhaps sweatshirt} all day. You guys are okay with that, right? No worries though, I have my thoughts on this week's Friend Friday questions and a weekly summary below {in case you miss my face that much}.


Week Review


1. How do you determine what you will wear that day?
I definitely don’t have it down to an exact science {nor do I think that’s necessarily the best thing}. For me it’s a combination of circumstance {what’s going on at work, or lack there of}, inspiration and a pinch of trial and error. In a previous post, I mentioned wanting to be more intentional with outfit choices and I do. If I have time to pull some outfits or experiment in my closet I take advantage of that. But there is something to be said about the process of standing in front of your closet, without an inkling as to what to wear and putting together an outfit. Call it living on the edge, or being spontaneous {or a little nerve wrecking} but some of best outfits happen that way.

2. Do you plan outfits out in advance for a whole week, month, weekend?
During the 30 for 30, I tried to plan as much as possible. I jotted down ideas, combinations, hung pieces together {I was obsessed, okay?}. But outside of that I try to get a vague idea of what I want to wear for the week. On a good week, 3 or 4 of those outfits come to see the light of the day on the blog/real life. Other weeks they all get scratched. Who knows why, it just happens that way.

3. Do you have any specific way of tracking outfits and items already worn so you don't repeat?
I suppose blogging is my attempt put an end to outfit repeating {or at least on the magnitude that I was repeating outfits}, but I don’t think repeating outfits is necessarily the WORST THING EVER. Some outfits just work and deserve a bit of flaunting/celebrating. But with that said re-wearing the same 5 work outfits week in and week out is something I don’t want to fall victim to. Quite honestly blogging helps me avoid being lazy.

4. How do you discover new combinations of items in your closet? (Trial try-ons? Hanging items together?)
Some days I get inspired to try different things on. See what works {usually what doesn’t} and go from there. I definitely like to hang “outfits” together in my closet to eliminate tearing my closet apart each and every morning, but that’s just on a weekly basis. I also like to look at magazine, catalogs and other bloggers to see what combinations other people are trying. You’d be surprised what other people put together {and look great in btw} that you never so much as thought about.

5. To streamline the process for 2011 what is one new thing you can do to cut down your dressing time?
Two thoughts here. First, to be more sure of myself. Take Wednesday {snug factor and all} for example. What you saw on the blog is what I put on first that morning. Fast forward 20 minutes later and I was wearing something completely different. At which point I looked in the mirror, shook my head and immediately put back on my first outfit. If I could just stop second guessing myself I would save 10-30 minutes a day.

Second, I have 2 closets which in the past I used to put all my “fun” clothes into one and then all my “work” clothes into the other. I’m trying to break the habit of pigeonholing my clothes. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to keep everything organized, but in the mean time I try to peruse both closets equally for inspiration.

Pin It!

  3. I also have two closets. Since I have way more tops than bottoms, I keep pants, skirts, and dresses in one closet and keep tops in the other closet. I also bought an inexpensive garmet rack and put a mixture of pieces on there that I know I want to wear in the coming week. Just an idea for you.

  4. I hope you enjoyed your day off. I'm surprised to hear that you are unsure of yourself - you always look so easily put together. Also, I'm jealous of your two closets.

    The Auspicious Life

    P.S. I'm totally watching Easy A from netflix today. I put it on my queue after seeing all your tweets.

  6. I agree with question.
    So many others think they shouldn't repeat an outfit ever.
