Hello my friends! It has been way too long. I finally carved out some time to get back to writing my blog. I’ve been super busy with work, family and planning a super exciting series of events that are happening next week. I’ll fill in on those later 😉
Last week was my first full week of the Beyond the Suit Shop Your Closet challenge. I’ve been so good. Despite all the temptation around me (I work in a major shopping area) I stayed focused and didn’t shop. And, most importantly, I spent time in my closet getting reacquainted to all the clothes I own. I dug deep and found some treasures! Clothes I haven’t worn in well over a year and, I’m ashamed to admit this, but clothes with tags still on them. But this challenge is breathing new life into my closet. I now realized sometimes we can all get in a rut with our work attire. Working in a corporate environment can stifle creativity so we wear the same clothes, the same way, all the time. This is why I am really pushing myself to look at my clothes through a new lens and come up with new ways to wear them. Here’s a tip: When you just feel like you have no other way to wear a certain article of clothing, open up your Pinterest app and do a search for that piece along with the word “work”. Instant inspiration!
So here some of my my looks for the past two week. If you are doing this style challenge with me, don’t forget to tag your photos on social media with #BTSShopYourCloset. I’m keeping an eye out for your creations.
And check back in a few days for major news!
