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.
