We had so much fun and so many new members join us last week, that I’ve decided to continue the #justgetdressed Challenge for 2 more weeks: November 3-16.
The focus is simple, yet often difficult: #justgetdressed. Yes…get dressed, every day for 2 weeks…by 10am if possible. If your job requires you to get up and get out of the house, then in some ways this is a no-brainer. But maybe you can challenge yourself to break out of your dressing routines, wearing the same combinations week in and week out? If you work from home like I do, the challenge is more obvious. It can be easy (…and tempting, and habit-forming) to spend the day in front of the computer wearing “comfort clothes” — yoga pants, sweat pants or even pj’s. Who’s going to notice or care? Your kids? The parents in the drop-off line? Probably not. But humor me for two weeks, and notice how much better you look, feel and even act, if you actually GET DRESSED, even if you’re staying home all day.
Make a commitment for two weeks, but don’t stress about it. I’m not talking about heels and sequins, or wearing elaborate outfits. In fact, I’m going to work in at least one “comfort clothes” day — but you’ll still look put together…and dressed. There are no “rules”, no “have to’s” and no pressure. Just some ideas and inspiration to help you shop your closet, get out of your ruts and put a bit more thought and creativity into the daily “what to wear” conundrum.
So, check here every day for the next 2 weeks for your daily challenge and outfit inspiration. If you haven’t already, you can join us on Facebook by clicking here and joining the free challenge.
Will “getting dressed” change your life, solve your problems or get the laundry done? No. But I can bet it will change the way you feel and how you approach your day. What do you have to lose ? Let’s give it a go!
