I slowly realized that picking out an outfit in the morning just wasn’t for me.
I mean, sometimes it would take me 5 minutes to figure out what I wanted to wear, and believe me, that was 5 minutes I didn’t have. So when I started a M-F job I decided that the days of frantically pulling out clothing in the mornings were gone.
And it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
I’ve begun to take 30-45 minutes each Sunday to pull out, try on, and pair my work week outfits. Some are easy and some take a few tries, but at the end I have 5 outfits hung up together and ready to go. It still gives me options, but I know whatever I pick will work and look good. I also make sure to check the upcoming weather for the week (and make sure you check the weather of the town your job is in if you commute!) and try to plan accordingly. This way I know not to wear my suede flats if it’s raining or to plan on pants if it’s going to be a freezing cold day.
It seems like such an easy thing, like it shouldn’t have taken me this long to figure out, but I had always been stuck in the think about it in the morning group. It’s so easy to put it off or choose to not want to spend your weekend planning outfits.
Especially if you aren’t into fashion.
However, if your like me and never seem to have enough time to find something you actually want to wear, then try this routine on for size.
