friday faves: wardrobe edition

Sorry fellas, this one’s for the ladies. Unless you’re a guy who suffers from wardrobe anxiety and is occasionally late strictly because you couldn’t decide what to wear. If that’s you, then read on my man.  And we’re sorry for gender stereotyping.

We’re in a wardrobe rut. For who-knows-what reasons, our clothes just haven’t felt good lately. We’re missing those go-to pieces that make us feel really good, and instead we’re drowning in way too many ‘meh’ pieces that have us feeling, well, meh.  Friends, meh is not good enough and these four friday faves are here to back us up on that.

1. A few weeks ago, the internet delivered Matilda Kahl – the wonderful woman who wears the exact same thing to work every day. Her story may be old news by now, but we still can’t stop thinking about how genius it is, and we found her reason for making the switch to a work uniform incredibly relatable.  2. Here’s the lovely Kate of Wit & Delight showing off her take on the uniform.  3. Soon after we read about the uniform, we read about wardrobe capsules. It was like the universe (okay, the internet) was telling us to rid our closet of meh and fill it with what a very smart woman named Mom calls “investment pieces”.  Fashion blogger Caroline Rector is a pro, as proven in this piece on The Everygirl. Follow Caroline’s minimalist process on her blog, Unfancy. Summer capsule planning starts now.  4. We don’t care how superficial this sounds – the right clothes make a person feel good, dammit. And when we feel good we spread that feeling to those we meet. This little post is about cultivating happiness.

    Fantastic article, Jessica. Relevant to me at the age of 66. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe and had a similar idea going when I was in the working world – good basics with a few “investment pieces”.
    Really enjoyed reading this, as always.
