Personal Style | Daily diary: edition 2

Even though dressing up comes naturally to me, there are some days when my mind draws a blank about what to wear. Even if I attempt a terminator-like closet scan, I'm still at a loss. When I worked from home, I could get by in my pajamas and t-shirts. But as a 9 to 5-iver, there are no off days. You may be stressed or depressed but you better show up well-dressed, honey.

I've had a couple of days where I've felt like nothing looks good on me or my closest is threadbare but I've soldiered on. Sometimes it involved dipping into my mom's closet and sometimes it took another coat of lipstick. So if there was a medal for being terribly confused about my choices but still arriving at a great look, I'd win a gold.

I've evidenced my Bruce Almighty sartorial choices before and this was just another one of those attempts. Also, there was no better time to wear all white than in summer!

So keep those spirits up, ladies - even on those off days!
