Ah, the first of many cool weather based ‘AskDS’ posts. Your questions about cooler weather stylings have been rolling in & today I’ve chosen 3 that I think we can all relate to at one point or another throughout the week.

I’m just o-ver getting dressed. I don’t know fashion, it takes too much time in the morning to get things together, and I never feel cute. I work in an office where leggings aren’t an appropriate form of clothing. I’m lacking inspiration and cool clothes.
First of all, leggings are NEVER an acceptable form of clothing. And as far as inspiration goes, Pinterest really can save your ass on those mornings where you think you have absolutely nothing to wear. I cheat at least once a week and check out my ‘outfit inspo‘ Pinterest board for ideas. No time to curate your own? I kinda dig mine.
Now, if you can’t be bothered with Pinterest, we’ve got a bit of a dilemna on our hands, don’t we? So let’s break your closet into three parts: Pants. Skirts. Dresses. Out of 5 workdays, you now have 3 covered. So let’s break it down a little further: Tapered pant. Wide leg pant. Skirt. Shift dress. Shirt dress. HUZZAH! That’s 5 days, ladies.
