Does it take you forever to get dressed in the morning? I know that it can take me forever! I sometimes just stare in to my closet feeling uninspired and annoyed that I have nothing to wear. Tired of wasting all this time, I took inspiration from one of my favorite minimalist fashion blogs called Into- Mind. This blog introduced me to the concept of developing a personal uniform. Think of a personal uniform as a signature look that can be easily replicated with the items hanging in your closet.
In order to develop my own spring uniform, I first took inventory of the items I already owned. Next, I looked to current spring trends to see which of them I wanted to incorporate into my wardrobe. I’ve been loving the whole flared denim and 70s revival that has currently hit the runways. Plus, I already own a number of flowy peasant tops. Ta-da! My 70s inspired spring uniform was born.
Unlike my failed capsule wardrobe attempt, the personal uniform has really worked for me. It’s nice knowing what combination of clothes to wear each morning and has made getting dressed less of a hassle. Since I already owned a number of peasant tops, the only new item of clothing purchased was a pair of distressed jeans from Express. I LOVE these jeans and will be doing a review of them in later post.
So tell me, what would you choose for your spring uniform?
