Eighteen

 

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?
(Perhaps a little unintentional alliteration?)
