This morning was that moment.
The I-am-all-out-of-ideas-and-in-a-hurry what will I wear morning.
I don’t like these kinds of “getting ready” days, especially on the weekend, it is a serious waste of time and no sum game. Loving fashion is one thing; procrastinating about it another. Set pieces that work when the mind’s creativity won’t is the answer to this never-ending conundrum. As practiced as “what to wear’ has become, I still falter.
Do you have these days?
I’m standing, semi-dripping, in front of an open closet looking with blind eyes. I know I’m sick of the puffer and want to wear a more tailored coat as an outer layer, but what should be underneath? It’s the weekend and casual and comfortable is my game and yet I don’t want to wear the black turtleneck again. It’s been on several outings this week. A dress? Maybe? I can’t say I’m feeling the frills.
Then my eyes fall on the ever faithful; the one and only never-let-me-down blouse. A leopard print in a chiffon fabric that can hang out on the weekend or tuck in if it’s business.
The answer is right there, in a sea of cream and black, the leopard blouse is my knight in shining armour. Working out the rest takes ten seconds – jeans, a pair of sneakers and a double-breasted coat.
When in doubt? This was my answer?xv
