How do you get dressed?  Not the physical act of putting on clothes- I mastered that weeks years ago, but how do you choose your clothing?  For me, it seems like it is different each day.  During the week, I pick out my clothes the night before and pack them away in my gym bag so I can get dressed in the locker room after spin.  I usually take into account the weather forecast, how long I'll be expected to be on my feet, if I need to look extra profesh for meetings or if I want a look that will transition well to happy hour after work.

My daily needs vary, hence my outfits are always of different comfort and dressiness.  I like that flexibility, because it allows me to wear a fancy dress one day and relaxed pants the next.  I can dress like a fancy lumberjack Monday and a modern day Mary Tyler Moore on Tuesday.  I don't envy people who wear uniforms or who have a very strict dress code that don't allow for some play.  It would save me a lot of time and money, but let's be honest: who needs more time and money?

How do you decide what to wear?

I work in law so you would think that it was all black suits, but since I am a paralegal in a relaxed firm, I have the freedom to wear whatever I want, which is nice. Like you, I always have to think ahead in my day as far as my outfit in terms of what the kids have planned, etc. I love this coat so much!
