Tomorrow is Monday! The dreaded Monday… I’ve never really understood why Monday’s are so hated, honestly. Some weeks I’m wishing for a holiday only because I feel less accomplished than I’d like to…but I don’t have it out for the day like so many others seem to. What’s to hate about it?! It’s the beginning of a new week – a fresh start!
It can be tricky to transition from a day of relaxation to getting the gears back to work, but I always find that what I choose to wear has a great affect on my mood. Maybe for ‘Motivation Monday’ we need to focus on dressing the way we would like to feel, and cultivating that feeling through fashion!
I watched Eat Pray Love again the other day, and one quote stuck out to me more than ever. It states: “You have to learn to select your thoughts the same way that you select your clothes every day.” What a revelation! I feel like the two may go hand in hand – choosing your thoughts with intent, but also intertwining those thoughts and feelings with your wardrobe choice. Dress in a way that makes you feel motivated to GET OUT THERE and GET ER DONE!
Wide leg slacks have always been a favourite of mine, both inside and outside the office. As a more petite woman, I feel like they add length to my legs (which I will take however and whenever I can!). They also bring with them so much comfort, and from previous posts, you know that I love me some comfort in my wardrobe!
I received this wool trench for Christmas and it’s fast become one of my absolute favourite pieces. This jacket is SO warm, which is a must in our Canadian climate; it allows me to stay stylish even on the coldest of days. I fell in love with the structure of it before anything else. It fits like a glove, and its symmetrical lines are to die for.
A great bag is always a complement to a great outfit. I’ve spruced Louis up with a scarf to give him that extra *pop* he was needing. It’s a great way to spice up an older bag, and even the smallest addition (such as a scarf or a keychain) can give you the impression of a whole new bag!
What are your favourite ways to make Mondays more Merry?
