Sometimes I feel totally uninspired. Then I look at my clothes and just feel annoyed. Annoyed because I have already worn the outfit I was thinking of, I didn’t leave enough time to put together a new out, or I am just sick of the season in general and want something new. When this happens I really try to take a step back and look at my clothes in a new way. Maybe try putting something together in a way you would not normally do such as pairing two colors together you usually keep separate. Or wear two bright things at once. Who says you can’t? If everyone is talking about breaking the fashion rules or that there aren’t any fashion rules anymore, why are we still dressing with “the rules” in mind? I say to heck with it. If I am bored and feel like wearing a DVF wrap dress to the grocery store at 9am on a Saturday morning I’m going to, why not? Even if that makes people think I am doing the walk of shame, let ‘em think what they want! At least I will have given them something to be amused by…or jealous of! I believe that here in MN we tend to follow the rules too much. We have a lot of great personalities and places to shop, so why not have some fun? I challenge you to one day a week wear something that you would not normally wear in that particular situation. I am not saying dress like a street walker to go to church but I am saying wear something bright on a grey day or wear that summer dress in the fall you still love with some layers over it. Even if it is something as simple as a great piece of jewelry with your lulu lemon jacket go for it! Mix it up and have a little fun…we may just surprise ourselves!
