The thought of what to wear can be exhausting.
Last Friday night was one of those moments. Seriously, I had no clue about what to wear. I was either dressing for yoga or a black tie event; I couldn’t get my mind around it at all.
In these instances I often fall back on a serious “no-brainer”; black tuxedo pants and a silk or chiffon style blouse. So I did.
With 5 minutes to get out the door, I donned the leopard silk, popped in my fancy drops and slapped on the red lips. Seriously it was possibly like 3 minutes and I was done. No thinking required because a good blouse can always save the day. Fortunately, the hair had already been washed and tortured straight earlier in the day; a good hair blow dry saves me hours.
Funnily enough, the blouse ensemble had more compliments than I have had in ages. As women, we do have a tendency to overthink things, at least I do. All the indecision and the madly-trying-on-only-to-be-discarded could have been avoided if I had headed immediately to what I know works.
Parties this week?
Save yourself some time and go straight to “GO“. The fabulous shirt will do you proud. xv
