Despite my longstanding fascination with style and fashion, I have never been one to go all-out in terms of dressing up. I'm definitely more inclined to plan an outfit than my husband, but my sartorial choices, most of the time, are on the casual side, especially since I work at home. Rare are the days I give a thought to the clothes I put on.
I want to change that, though.
Last Sunday, I shook off my natural tendency to pick out a pair of jeans and a white shirt and decided to unearth long forgotten pieces in my wardrobe. The change felt good, not in a life-changing way, but it was refreshing. My style slump had been going on for a while, it seemed, because my husband who usually doesn't mind the way I look took notice of my effort. "It's different," he said, "but a good kind of different." And I agree.
I've read that many successful people, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, choose to wear the same type of clothing daily to save time. While that's notable, I'd like to do the opposite. I've thought a lot about the things I do lately and have learned that I don't give much of myself to anything besides my family and my work.
Sure, it may sound excessive and absurd but I want to start putting more thought and heart into everything I do — even if it's something as seemingly mundane as dressing up. So here's how I'm planning to up my style game.
