If you are like me or many of the women I talk to, you might have found yourself in a rut of always wearing the same 'combos'. Always 'x' top with 'y' pants and the same shoes...
No wonder we get bored with our wardrobe even if we own a lot of 'stuff'...
So today we are talking about versatile pieces that can be worn in so many different ways.
This is not my best outfit but there is a good story behind this top. ;) I have owned it for so many years! And the morning of the photo, as I was looking for what to wear, I saw it and remembered all the different ways in which I have worn it. That day was going to be a jeans day, so I kept looking. Then I went back to it, thinking, "Oh! This will go with jeans too!" I have never worn it with jeans!
I usually wear it with pants and skirts for more dressy outfits.
What I want you to know is that there are ALREADY so many new possibilities that you might have not thought of to combine items in your wardrobe in a different way.
I have seen it over and over again with the hundreds of women I have worked with. You already own a lot of things but you might have got stuck in a rut of wearing the same over and over again.
When you start looking at your wardrobe with more creative eyes, the amount of possibilities that opens up for new outfits can be amazing!
It is so much fun!
This is a great example of the same top with 4 different bottoms. Look how completely different these outfits look. And it is even easier when you wear the same bottom with different tops.
Why not set aside some time this week, on a day that you are feeling relaxed and happy. Play some music, have a drink or a coffee and look through your clothes. Look at them as it is the first time you were looking at them.
Try new combinations and lay them out on your bed. Change the tops, bottoms, or the accessories. Create at least 5 new outfits you have never worn before (with what you own today).
It sounds simple, but believe me, it will open up a lot of new energy in your wardrobe!
I am wearing: Jeans and shoes: Colombia, the top is so old that I don't even remember, sorry.
Have an amazing week!
