2014 New Year’s Resolution: Start wearing the clothes I own.
Sounds ridiculous right…but I noticed that over the past few weeks I have been reaching in my closet for the same 4 or 5 items when I am getting dressed for work.
So on Jan 2 I pulled out every blazer, blouse, skirt, pant and dress that I had…
And for the next 18 days I am challenging myself to wear something that I love, yet rarely put on, every day!
I will also take a much needed hiatus from shopping.
It’s OUT with the new and IN with the old this month!
This look was inspired by local Toronto Stylist Sandra Pittana, as seen on the City Line Holiday show (she looked fab in a Apple green and pink ensemble)
I was also inspired by the classic cool of Kate Spade and J. Crew.
At this point in my career Spade and Crew are a little over budget but inspiration is …FREE!
I still cannot believe this outfit was hiding in plain sight in my closet and to think I almost gave this shirt away!
Can’t wait for tomorrow’s look!
What to wear to work, office holiday party:
Pleated skirts, loud colours and hounds tooth print may not sound like a winning combination, however, I have gotten more than my money’s worth out of this Club Monaco skirt.
The black stone necklace and black stone earrings add a sleek sophistication to this look.
This outfit gets mileage while at work and after work at the many informal holiday parties coming up this season.
Note: houndstooth print has been in style for decades and keeps coming back, therefore if you find a piece you like it’s likely to last you a long time.
