For a gal who loves getting dressed, I typically have a hard time doing it. Mornings are rough for me, mostly because I am so not a morning person (OK, I'm not much of a morning person on weekdays, but come weekends, try to keep me in bed past 8:30 ... funny how that works). I will snooze that alarm for pretty much as long as possible, do the let-the-dog-out thing, then the wash/dry deal, and then ... stand in front of my closet and stare.
I'm not staring because I am amazed at how wonderful my clothing is, or doing a mental "ooh, pretty" at everything. I'm staring because I have about four minutes before I have to leave and not a single thought in my head. Sure enough, this happens pretty much every morning. Seriously.
Now I've tried the whole laying out my clothes the night before thing, or writing out outfit ideas, or checking out my own pinned outfits for inspiration, but pretty much anything that requires forethought doesn't work for me. Whatever I plan in advance, for sure I just won't feel it that morning - trust me, I've tried.
What does work for me? Time. As in, I need to allot at least 15, sometimes 20-25 minutes, to get dressed each morning. Just the whole putting-it-all-together part. So if someone needs me in a rush in the morning, who knows what they will get!
Am I the only one with an off-kilter getting ready routine? This may be a ridiculous question to ask, but how do you get dressed each day?
