On a regular day I get up at 3 am. I try to get out the door by 3:30 am. I am not thinking about anything besides getting in the car and driving the hour commute to my job. That is the goal. The beginning of my day is not much different from the rest of the 24 hours of nonstop go.
I have read that the most successful people buy very basic clothing styles to keep life less complicated. Arianna Huffington is Editor in Chief of AOL Huffington Post, says she starts her day without looking at her phone and uses the extra time to do yoga. Rosie Huntington, a model and entrepreneur says she makes breakfast, replies to emails, and sips her coffee. Michelle Kohanzo is the manager for The Land of Nod. She ONLY takes 30 minutes to get dressed and drink her coffee. Anna Wintour plays tennis every morning. Isabel Marant, a fashion designer, has a cup of tea and swims 35 laps before she is in the office. Not one woman talked about spending the time to put together an outfit.
A simple wardrobe allows you to focus on the important tasks you have to complete during the course of a day.
I try to think about this when I shop. Is this going to work with my wardrobe? Sometimes I cave and I buy those pants that literally will go with nothing… but they were on sale!!! I am sure you know what I am talking about. Picking out an outfit should be the last thing on your mind during a busy work week. Shop accordingly.
Here is my formula: 1 accessory + 2 shoes + 1 pair of jeans + dress shirt = You can’t go wrong
Throw in a fur dress for some pizzaz and you are good to go. I think this outfit is the perfect example of what to wear on a regular day.
