Every girl has to have that one outfit that serves a pure “dress to impress” purpose. This is the go to outfit to take on the “meeting your cranky boss to ask for a raise” ensemble, or the “meeting your friends that you haven’t seen in a while and you want them to think you’re thriving even though you cried over the Notebook and drank two bottles of wine and downed an entire block of Gouda last night outfit.” However I choose to wear this combo, I know that it will trick everyone, including myself, into thinking that I have my life together.
Sometimes when life gets tough, it’s easy to bundle up in a paint splattered sweatshirt and some frayed but oh so comfortable pajama pants and hole up to watch four straight seasons of The Mindy Project. I believe that breaking out a refined outfit in the midst of life’s chaos can instantly brighten my day and make me feel like I can accomplish anything.
