I firmly believe that one’s mood plays a huge role when it comes to dressing up. There are days when you just want to dress to the nines even if there’s no particular occasion and then, consequently, there are also days when you want to dress down even if you have to be all over the place.
However, I don’t equate dressing down with being uncoordinated. People with that mindset should get a new perspective. Just because you have errands to do and you think no one will see you, doesn’t give you an excuse to look unpresentable. You owe it to yourself–every single second is a life-changing opportunity and you don’t want to deter certain opportunities just because you don’t look prepared or ready.
But don’t worry, I think the art of dressing up and the art of dressing down is a tricky thing. Everyone has a learning curve. It took a while for me to get it but hey, at least I got it. Just remember that just because you’re in a hurry, doesn’t mean you should simply grab the article of clothing that’s sitting restlessly on top of your (freshly ironed, I hope) clothes pile. Put a bit of thought into it, just a little will go a long way.
Better yet, stick to fool-proof favorites.
I know that the bottomline is that, so what? You’re just doing errands right? And what people think isn’t really important? I know that the bottomline is, it’s really not important what people think. I mean, at the end of the day, you’re there to please yourself right, so as long as you’re not doing anything wrong?
Yeah, I guess. To each his own. I just think it’s settling and it’s a waste of possibilities. Everyone should be prepared for anything life throws at them… especially style-wise.
