On Mondays, I’m all about simplicity. When I was getting dressed this morning, I honestly had no idea what I wanted to wear… But I knew it had to be something quick, easy, and no-ironing-required.
My life is in a major transition right now, as is my wardrobe.
C and I are now the proud co-owners of the family florist business, and after years wearing corporate 9 to 5 attire, I’m kind of struggling with figuring out how to dress for my new role. I want to be casual and comfortable, but still look like a business owner. Clothes also have to be more dispensable now, because I’m learning that florists can get dirty! Cute aprons are quickly becoming my favorite accessory.
I’m putting away the stilettos and pulling out more ballet flats and sandals, trading the Express Editors and pencil skirts for jeans and leggings, and reaching over the sheath dresses for the easy breezy frocks in the back of my closet. I’m trying to figure out some tricks for being casual and practical (two words I’d never use to describe my style) while still feeling like myself. And without a major wardrobe overhaul.
The good news for you is that a lot of the things from the “work” side of my closet are now available for purchase on the Shop My Closet page! There’s still a lot of things I need to add, but it’s like selling your children, and I have to emotionally prepare myself to part with all of my favorite pieces.
Looking forward to what’s ahead — for my life and my style ;-)
