A Look In My Closet: OOTD

I have been MIA for the past several days because I was on vacation.  I spent 4 days with my besties in the Outer Banks, 2 days at home, and then 4 days in South Carolina visiting family.  I thought I would share some of the outfits I packed along with me for a little outfit inspiration for you guys in case you are headed on a corona-cation. Obviously, we couldn’t do a whole lot because of social distancing, so these outfits are all pretty casual. I wore each of them with either my Converse Shoreline Sneakers or a pair of flip flops. I also pretty much packed the same outfits for both trips. Sadly, I did not take a single picture while wearing any of these outfits, but you can get the idea from these flat lays.  All of the jewelry featured is from Trades of Hope. Any purchase of this jewelry helps to empower women around the world out of extreme poverty and human trafficking.

A Look in my Closet: OOTD

It has been a while since I have given you guys a peek into my closet at some of the outfits I have been wearing.  It has been crazy busy, but I did remember to snap some pictures of a few of my recent outfits.  While many of these pieces are no longer available, I have found pieces for you that are similar.  My hope with posting these outfits is that you will use them as inspiration to create your own looks.  That is what I do all the time.  I gain inspiration from all over the place.  I love taking something that is already in my closet and pairing it with something new, which is what I have done with most of these outfits. It is like taking something old and making it current and on trend again.  Check them all out.

A Look in My Closet: OOTD

Summer hit full force near the end of last week.  At one point on Saturday when I got it my car, the thermostat said 100 degrees.  I don’t even know what the heat index was, but it was HOT! I really thought that I was escaping 100 degree or more temps when I left South Georgia! I guess I was wrong.  Hopefully it won’t last long and the cooler days will come back.  I was out Saturday in the heat doing a little formal gown shopping for a Gala I have coming up this weekend.  I will show you what dress I picked next week along with all of my outfit choices for our Trades of Hope Inspire Retreat.  I am so excited and cannot wait for Thursday to get here. Anyway, it has been a while since I have let you have a peek into my closet so I figured that it was about time to show you what I have been wearing this past week.

A Look into my Closet-OOTD

When I was working full time, I dressed up every single day except some Fridays when we were allowed to wear jeans and a school t-shirt with tennis shoes.  I wore dresses, skirts, dress pants, and nice tops every day.  When the weekends would roll around, I would still dress nicely.  It may have been a nice top with jeans and cute shoes, but it was never really what I call “crummy clothes” unless I was sick or cleaning all day and not leaving the house. My oldest will tell you that I am always fussing at her for wearing “crummy” clothes all the time. She lives in athletic clothes or a t-shirt and jeans or shorts all the time, even to go out to dinner or out with friends. It drives me nuts. My youngest is more like me and wears dresses just to hang around the house. You never know what is going to go on in a day or who you are going to run in to. Don’t you want to look your best?

I have always had the mindset of dressing up. You guys know that I am a little obsessed (okay, a lot obsessed) with clothes.  I have all of these nice clothes, so why not wear them? I have also always had the mindset that a person should always try to look their best no matter what is going on.  Looking cute just makes you feel better and more productive.  I don’t know about you but when I dress “crummy,” I feel lazier and just want to sit around and do nothing.  Don’t get me wrong, I do like those days every now and then, but for the most part, I get up, shower, put on makeup, and get dressed almost every day of the year.  I was the girl that was in labor that showered, put on makeup, and dressed cute before leaving to go to the hospital.  Then while I was still in the hospital, I made myself get up and shower and get dressed just to sit in the hospital bed.  Even now that I am not working and I am home most of the day, I still get up and get dressed every day. I have dropped my daughter off at gymnastics wearing a dress and people have ask me if I was going somewhere that day to be all dressed up.  The answer was usually no. I just wanted to look good. I don’t see it as getting dressed up or looking fancy. I see is as just wanting to look good and feel good about myself. It is just part of my nature.  I truly believe that how you dress yourself daily is a reflection of the person you are and a reflection of your drive and ambition.  I could totally sit around in sweats and hoodies or yoga pants all day or even stay in my pajama pants, but that’s not who I am.  I can still be comfortable and look cute.  It is possible.  I have decided that a couple of times a month, I will just show you what I wore during that week so you can see what I wear on a daily basis.

Here is what I wore this past week. You can see that some outfits are very casual, but they are still cute. They don’t look or make me feel “crummy.” They make me feel confident and ready to face the day.

As you can see, several of the outfits are pretty casual, but they are still cute. It is so important to feel good about yourself.  The perfect outfit can always give you a boost of confidence.  Always be dressed for success no matter what is going on in your life.  Now, go get up and get dressed.
