When in doubt - wear black, add sunglasses.
Sometimes pulling together an outfit requires more energy than I can muster in the mornings. So my steadfast rule - wear black; add sunglasses.
I wore this outfit to go to mass at Westminster Cathedral on Easter Sunday. I know what you're thinking, dressed head to toe in black isn't exactly church appropriate and definitely doesn't give off joyous Easter vibes. Well, I was tired and needed an outfit to give me motivation to leave my house.
That's the thing about getting "dressed up," people often assume you're just being extra but sometimes a killer outfit is that little push you need to get your ass out the door. "Get up, dress up, show up and never give up" - it's somewhat of a cliché but, at it's core it is true. Doing each in turn gives you the courage to do the next one. Getting up can be tough, especially when you're not a morning person and your bed is just so comfy. Dressing up is the next challenge but when you put on the right outfit, it totally makes you feel like you can take on the world and all it has to throw at you that day. Simply, getting dressed in something that makes you feel incredible is you showing the world that you're ready to fuck shit up. Once you've dressed up, well you're half way there.
