Get Dressed On The Soul Express

Get Dressed On The Soul Express

It’s true, I’m all for a good soul-expression…in any shape or form.   Which is why I take the act of getting dressed everyday pretty serious.   Aren’t our outfit choices our most obvious way to self-express?  Obviously there are other factors that come into play such as weather, activities planned, and of course clothing costs.   But you can still look fab while working out the mind, body and soul.  Here’s what I’d wear if my soul (not my wallet!) had the final say in my outfit for the day.

I’ve been on a mission to find the perfect pair of sweats since Alexander Wang ushered in the whole sporty chic thing.  I’ve tried several styles without success — which got me to the realization — there’s a fine line between slouchy cool and just sloppy.

    Cool ideas! I love to wear something bright–it seems to give me a boost when my energy sags and I see a shot of citrus yellow tee or similar. Love the black pant with horizontal stripes above. Who makes those? Thanks for the inspiration! xoxo
