When I was younger we had this sizable wooden brown trunk full of dresses, heels, hats & pearls. Oh how we loved the pearls. Whether it was playing a game of Pretty Pretty Princess... you know it had that high quality synthetic cast jewelry! OR spending the afternoon with the magical trunk becoming a princess, a teacher or a pirate (Couldn't leave the brother out). That trunk full of what everyone else just viewed as aged, undesirable clothes were little girls treasures.
I feel many of us have lost this truth most days. As dressing up has turned into a chore instead of a fun way to express yourself.
So I challenge you to put on your goggles or Kate Spade glasses and try to view your closet a little differently today. Play with mixing different styles or contrasting a burnt orange top w/ a purple skirt because who says you shouldn't start each day with a dose of fun? Who says you can't love lace and leather OR stripes with a safari print? Style doesn't need to make sense it needs to express who you are.
So put on that skirt and do a twirl. Your five year old self with thank you.
