After my short stint of feeling all lady like and like, totally sophisticated, I realised that on a rainy Wednesday it is much easier to pull on a big knit, leggings and battered old converse in order to face the day.
My name is Lauren and I’m a complete lady like fraud.
Now it’s not that I don’t like being lady like but on a rainy day, it’s just a little hard to button up, slip on those heels and leave the chunky knit at home. My days mostly revolve around being creative and unfortunately, a pencil skirt just doesn’t inspire me to write a killer song , persuasive website copy, or think up a plausible excuse as to why I didn’t do the washing up yet again this morning.
Do you remember own clothes day at school and how it completely changed your work ethic and attitude in class? Being out of uniform and in your own clothes sparked individuality and an awareness of who you were. Well, the very same thing applies to me now. When I’m particularly fashionable, I feel inspired to write about the industry and all that it entails. When I’m power dressed, I am pretty much ready to rock into any meeting and talk about hard cash, spreadsheets and forecasts (unfortunately this doesn’t enhance my understanding of it all), and when dressed in comfy clothes, I’m ready for a day of bleeding myself dry of creative juices.
For me, the clothes I’m wearing set me up for the day ahead and dictate exactly how my brain will work that day. So here I am, sat crossed legged on my swivel chair having written half a song, a few guest posts and lots of web copy. It seems to be working for me!
Do you find the same thing?
