Today's outfit is brought to you by my need to wear something other than a chambray shirt on Zoom calls. A few weeks into this new world, I realized that I was a really big fan of colorful skirts and pants, so my tops tended to be solid colors and understated. That was all well and good until I entered a universe where people could only see from my underarms and up. I decided to get a few new shirts that would make my days less likely to run together.
I decided that I wanted to get a few shirts that differed from my current styles, so I spent more time than I will admit looking through Nordstrom Rack and Macy's looking at some new brands. This top is from Madewell, and this brand might become a new favorite. I liked the details and thought it would be cute now and throughout the summer.
As I mentioned yesterday, my approach to feeling as normal as possible during all of this is to get ready each day. I'm not really wearing "normal clothes" because I feel no need to wear work pants, but I definitely realized early on that I needed to be reminded that life was still moving forward even in the middle of all of this, so I needed to wear real clothes and make plans and whatnot. I didn't want to feel like every day was a sick day (which is how I felt the first few days when I just wore whatever I felt like wearing). I know that plenty of people don't need to get out of their sweatpants, and I respect that. I'm just saying what has worked for me.
Now, back to my new shirt! :)
I wasn't originally thinking this one would work with work pants, but now I'm thinking it might. I'll have to try it out, but I'm not really motivated enough to dig those out of the closet...maybe if I hit a new level of boredom...
I am thinking that this top could be dressed up with some cute wedges or worn with denim shorts and Birks. Once again, I should probably try that out, but that's not happening. Let's not get crazy!
I'm including the link to the shirt here! Hope this makes your day a bit more fun!
