Although I managed to get away with shoes without socks twice this week, I don’t have high hopes that us Torontonians will be baring our legs or arms to the elements any time soon, which means one unfortunate thing: more of the same everything you’ve been wearing for the past forever. I don’t know if it’s been a particularly long winter or a lack of wardrobe expansion thanks a a tight budget, but on a daily basis I look at my rather large, very full closet and proclaim “Uggghhh, I have ABSOLUTELY nothing to wear!” This, of course, couldn’t be further from the truth. I have plenty to wear, I’m just (a) sick of it, (b) not quite sure how to style it, or (c) don’t know what shoes to wear with it in this strange and unpleasant climate.
Hence my “participation” in Dean Street Society‘s “Style Me April Closet & Instagram Challenge.” The premise is simple: each day has a theme to help provide some outfit ideas and hopefully get you thinking outside of your go-to-outfit box. I referenced my “participation” in quotes, because the idea behind the challenge is merely to provide inspiration. There are no real rules and certainly no prizes, except, perhaps, a new way of looking at your existing wardrobe. Moreover, I’m currently unemployed / quasi working from home, so getting dressed in anything but lulu’s isn’t even a thing that happens every day. That said, in honour of a new month, this evening’s date, and this blog post, today I will be living up to the challenge and “Skirting Around Town.”
Any other tips for breaking out of the winter wardrobe doldrums?
