So the majority of my days consist of 1-718 outfit changes depending on my plans. I hate wearing the same thing all day. Usually by lunch I am out of the mood of the original outfit and ready for something different/more comfortable/cuter/not what I am currently wearing. It just happens. I am ok with it. I have come to pack for it pretty well on trips. It drives my husband a bit nutty. On days where an outfit change is not an option I have a lot of anxiety. I can not predict what I will want to wear to dinner when I usually can’t commit to a sweater/skirt combination past lunch.

Anywho, last week I was meeting a friend for lunch/gossip, taking back all the things I had been meaning to since Christmas came and went and ending this all day event meeting Joel for dinner(HUSBAND). Needless to say, I tried on roughly 94 different outfits and couldn’t find a good fit that would flow all day. I did, however, find a solution that didn’t take too much packing, just an additional sweater and pair of shoes. And guess what-by the time dinner rolled around I was still pretty pleased with the way things turned out. The long gray tank/oversized cardigan was so comfy that I didn’t feel the need to get away from it and Toms are always a good choice when running around town. Truth be told I wear a version of this outfit most afternoons and when bumming around town. Then for dinner throwing the sweater over the long tank was a perfect casual night out when paired with the boots. Maybe I will go throw that on for the rest of today…

I wish I could say this was me turning over a new leaf. Not putting so much pressure on the perfect outfit. Not needing to change so many times each day. Perhaps being able to pack a carry on for a weekend trip instead of checked luggage. Sadly not. My name is Mallory and I am addicted to an outfit change.

Until next time.
