I had a bit of an epiphany this evening. I was walking out of work and thinking about how I hadn’t taken a picture of today’s outfit. I didn’t think it was up to snuff. I didn’t think it was good enough.
If I don’t think the outfit is good enough to photograph and post, why should I think it’s good enough to wear at all? More importantly, why should I wear it at all? I obviously don’t think it’s that cute. It was actually pretty generic, with a top that doesn’t fit quite the way I would like.
So why did I wear it? It was easy; it was fast; I liked the color of the top. But that isn’t enough. Perhaps, if nothing else good comes of this blog and no one ever reads it, I will at least start to pay more attention to what I wear, get rid of the of the stuff that doesn’t fit correctly, and focus on buying things I love instead of lots of things in general.
Now if I could just find a nice, flowy black tank top to wear under things….Maybe this one. Update: Ordered.
(Comment from Sandra: This month’s MORE magazine had an excellent article on this exact concept.)
