Getting It Together

Happy Monday all!

I have a confession to make, I suck at outfit planning. I can plan one for a post but when it comes to my daily life, I don’t do it.   Due to my lack of planning, I spend a good part of the morning  scrambling to put an outfit together for work.  Another downside to my lack of planning is that I don’t wear a lot of of clothes in my closet.  So, in an effort to utilize  my closet more, I’ve decided to try outfit planning for the week.  Below is sample of what I’ve already put together.  When I started putting my outfits together, I instantly felt relieved and less stressed. Now if I can work on not losing my  keys in the house, I’ll be set!

What are some of your outfit planning tips?

Have a wonderful day!

Monday:

Monday mornings are hard anyway, so trudging around to find something to wear has resulted in me doing Flo Jo like sprints to catch my train!   I’ve been wanting to wear this forest green Eloquii skirt with this Loft sweater for awhile now but I never got around to doing so.  I plan on putting together more color combos to beat the upcoming Winter blues.

Tuesday:

Tuesday is my in day at work so I can wear jeans. I think I’ve said this before, I suck at casual dressing. Usually I just throw on a top and some sneakers.  With outfit planning, I can elevate my jeans look with a fun sweater and cute flats.

Friday:

My company is having it’s annual Christmas party so I definitely want to look nice.  Eloquii gifted me a pair of their FABULOUS Kady pants a few weeks ago but I haven’t worn them yet.  I think the festive occasion is a perfect place to debut these pants.   Usually I  shy away from  wearing  form fitting pants because I don’t like how my stomach looks.  To address that issue, I’m pairing the pants with Eloquii’s faux bustier peplum top to cover my tummy.

    This is a great idea! I realized I also need outfit planning in my life, but haven’t gotten as far as you have. 🙂

    Love all the outfits, especially Monday’s! Animal print booties are on my NEEDS list right now!. I do this every week or else I wouldn’t wear all my clothes. I actually write them down in my planner usually on Sunday afternoon or evening, and check to make sure nothing’s dirty or needs repair. And having a record where I can check back let’s me note outfits that I think were successful AND not repeat anything in a two week period. Yeah, a bit anal I guess, but it helps me wear all my clothes. Of course, I always have a back up outfit or two (usually grey dress or black and white combo) in case I’m not in the mood! Good luck with this Ms. G – you’re off to a great start!

    What an inspiring post! I am very lazy about planning outfits so I tend to wear the same few favorite items over and over. How boring! Your examples really help! Thank you! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    I relate so much to this post. As much as I love to see put together outfits, I get a bit lazy about putting together outfits for myself.
    Love what you put together here.
