7 Day Dress-Up Capsule

I haven't felt like getting dressed properly over the last few weeks.  There were moments that called for it and I did pull myself together, but for the most part I have spent my time in my sweatpants.  I don't think that there is anything wrong with this.  I was hurting both physically and emotionally and staying in my sweats was comforting.  

In the last few days I have started to feel much more like myself.  I am physically feeling much better.  Sometimes, when facing something difficult, I need to make the effort into my appearance in order to buoy my mood and to help me function better.  Yesterday, I decided to create a dressier capsule for the next week.  I think it will help bring me out of this funk.  Honestly, I am ready for it.  I needed time and space to feel my feelings, but I also don't want to check out of life for too long. 

My dress-up capsule contains 7 articles of clothing that I would consider to be dressier than my normal fare (although not really that dressy).  I am trying to go the extra mile to feel good in my skin again.  I have included 3 dresses, 1 sweater, 1 skirt, 1 pair of dress shorts and a blue tank.

I will post my outfits next week and let you know if this experiment worked!  I will also be posting on Instagram.  Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. I've been loving seeing your outfits on Instagram! I think you're so right about dressing up being a mood-booster!

  2. Thanks, Jess! I appreciate that!
