What to Wear on "One of Those Days"

Most of us have had one of those days. You're tired. You're grumpy. And you just got a look at yourself in the mirror. These are days when you're exhausted, feeling uninspired, or when you're just feeling down.

Contrary to popular belief, you should never dress like a slob when you're having "one of those days." Quite opposite, actually. When you wear an outfit that is nice, pulled together, and not sloppy, you mood will instantly rise.

I wore my new coat the other day, and I just couldn't help but smile because I felt good, and it looked good. On "one of those days" you can still have a simple outfit without looking frumpy. My tips? Avoid the sweats at all costs. Stick to simple pieces that work best for you.

Outfit 1: Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy


This could be the simplest outfit out there! When you want a simple outfit, an easy outfit, and at the same time, an outfit that is stylish and chic, this is the way to go. Throw on some skinny jeans, your favorite pair of boots, a slouchy sweater, and you're good to go. For real. Add some accessories, and no one will be able to tell you were having "one of those days."

Outfit 2: Openly Glamourous, Secretly Simple


This outfit is a cute, chic outfit. It's great for those who want serious comfort, or for those who don't like to wear jeans. Let me explain why it's perfect for "one of those days." For one, leggings are really comfortable! One tip, though. Make sure you wear a shirt or tunic or dress that covers up your butt. No one wants to see that. A layered long sleeve shirt can be good weather wise, and ballet flats are perfect as a pop of color. Be sure to accessorize. With this outfit, you will look glamourous, and only you will know that you're having a bad day.

Outfit 3: Pop of Color


This is another outfit that looks so glamorous, but is actually quite simple. A colorblock dress keeps it clean, and a melon colored cardigan adds a bright pop of color. Another outfit for those not into jeans, the tights will keep you warm, comfortable, and chic. Yes, that's all. A simple dress and one pop of color and you're good to go!

Outfit 4: Sky High


For an instant mood lifter, slip on some heels or wedges...anything to give yourself a boost! A floral blouse draws interest to the outfit, and a trench coat keeps it classy. This is another simple outfit. Just a pair a jeans, a blouse, a coat, some killer heels, and you've got yourself another easy outfit for "one of those days."
