An Unofficial Uniform
Lately I've been thinking about the idea of an unofficial uniform that I can wear mostly on a daily basis. Kevin does it! haha. He always wears blue jeans and just a ratty t shirt that he has unless he is actually going somewhere. Last week I went to Target to buy some more maternity clothes and ended up with two more pairs of jeans and also a couple of shirts. These were just some plain shirts but I thought that they could be used in more ways and could be either dressed up or dressed down depending on what I'm doing or where I'm going.
Then it hit me the other day, that maybe I could just wear those types of things every day and it would keep me from having to truly think about it since I don't really care about my clothes, I just want to look nice and presentable. So I kind of had the ball rolling in my head already when I listened to a podcast where they were talking about having an "unofficial uniform" for their daily work and that made it all click for me. As a girl, I have plenty of accessories that I can use to change the look and feel of my outfit while at the same time, keeping it easy and low-key.
I also have noticed a trend of mine is that I lean towards grays and navys. I went to Dirt Cheap and found some great deals on some shirts and a dress! I was so elated and when I laid them out on my bed this is what I saw:
Yep, navy and gray. This was kind of funny to me but it was also kind of a relief because once I realized this, I know what to look for now! It's kind of fun when you take another step in finding out your personal style and I'm very excited about moving forward with my "uniform" and seeing how I can adjust it to how I'm feeling that day or what I will be doing. I don't know, I feel like I've discovered a secret to easier daily living or something, ha!
I can't wait to see how this turns out for the rest of my pregnancy and this year. I hope to post some updates and stuff like that!
