Mood Enhancer: White lace top + peach jeggings

This outfit was an exercise in taking the ordinary and making it, if not extraordinary, then at least a little bit better.



I am working night shifts this week, which means not a lot of sleep, so I am looking for easy and comfortable outfits like this one: A loose tunic and jeggings. And if this had been a few years ago, I would have stopped there. My idea of accessorizing was picking out shoes that matched my outfit.


But since then I have really started to enjoy taking a simple outfit and turning it into a look, conveying a mood or an idea. So I think about adjectives — how am I feeling? How do I want to feel? How do I want people to feel when they see me?


In this case, I was feeling tired and kind of down, so I wanted to turn that around with a look that was light, airy and soft.


What about you — do you use clothes to reflect your mood, or to change it? For me, it depends on the day.

  1. I love that first picture of you so much. I can't pinpoint exactly what makes it so great (the outfit? the pose? the face you are making?), but it jumped off the screen at me.
    I do a little bit of both when it comes to what I want an outfit to feel like. That's the great thing about clothes is they can be used however you want to use them.

    1. Thanks! I was feeling pensive, it must have showed through. I have been trying to experiment with different poses because there are only so many ways you can stand up against your closet doors ...
