Starting the Week Off Strong

Although I hate Mondays, I try to be optimistic in all respects regarding the start of a new week. This includes my attitude towards not only work but also about my wardrobe. On Sundays, if I'm feeling particularly ambitious, I'll plan a few outfits for the week and set them aside to wear but as we all know, the best laid plans often go awry! The outfit in today's post is one that I wore a couple Mondays ago and I was happy that I was starting the week off on a stylish foot. Then I started to get a tickle in my throat and I woke up on Tuesday morning with a cold! Well, that meant toning it down a notch in the wardrobe department and wearing clothes that prioritized comfort over style.

Now that I'm finally over my cold and feeling better, I'm making it a goal to get back to being my normal stylish self again. I'm also making it a goal to take advantage of some of the gorgeous pieces that are already in my wardrobe instead of just wearing my new, recently purchased pieces. Sadly, because of blogging, I often prioritize new purchases over old pieces so that I can feature them on my blog or Instagram account but I would like to find a way to feature some of my older pieces too! Take, for example, this gorgeous skirt. It isn't exactly old (less than a year) but I haven't worn it since it came out last summer. It was fun to style the skirt a little differently and now I'm motivated to start this week off with some other pieces that I haven't worn in a while!
