There is a time, during the winter, when I lose a bit of inspiration with my winter outfits. I feel like I’ve already worn a bit of everything (even if my wardrobe is there to prove me wrong), the weather is grey and cold and therefore limiting, and I need a bit more imagination to create new and interesting winter outfits.
THE POWER OF MINI CHALLENGES…
In these cases, usually, I resort to the good practice of the mini challenges. They are, in essence, simple and practical strategies that force our hand a bit, in a good sense, helping us to create many new winter outfits with what we already have in the wardrobe. (And maybe even with the new things of the season that, so far, we’ve hardly put in).
These mini-challenges are particularly effective because they start from us: from our style, from our individual tastes, from clothes and accessories that we should wear anyway (because of the weather conditions or our daily needs). And, from there, they help us to use our creative vein to create many new winter outfits.
In my case, my challenge today was to match two neutral colors that I usually never wear together: camel and taupe.
While I was there, I also challenged myself to take advantage of two accessories that I’ve been using very little lately in my winter outfits: these faux leather snake print ankle boots and my Gucci Dionysus, which I’ve been neglecting a bit lately.
