I’m sure we’ve all heard the style advice about procuring wardrobes that are appropriate for the lives we actually lead…in other words, don’t keep buying fancy cocktail dresses if most of your evenings are spent at home in front of the TV!!
And while this advice makes perfect sense – why “waste” money on a closet full of pieces that you adore, but never have the opportunity to wear – I also love the idea of leaving the rules behind and dressing for the life you dream of!!
Admittedly, someone who’s employed in a corporate field needs to invest in items that work for that particular environment…which will likely require a sizeable bit of closet real estate. But my own collection of medical scrubs fits into a single drawer of my dresser, which leaves the rest of the room in my wardrobe available for all my various fashion fancies!!
While I’ve kept things casual today with a cut-off denim skirt and the vintage wool turtleneck I inherited from my dad (thanks Dad!)…it’s also quite possible that I might be in that previously-mentioned party dress when I’m headed to the bookstore for an afternoon of Starbucks and browsing!!
