Shopping. I love shopping online, shopping in real life. I love shopping for clothes, for food, housewares, for beauty products, random whatnots. For all kinds of goodies. While shopping at home doesn’t require any strategies for getting dressed, going shopping in real life does.
One day, while I was sitting out in the shopping district of my town, I noticed most people were dressed casually, in simple clothes, that didn’t need a fuss. Sure most people wear simple clothes because that’s what they wear, but I wonder if that’s also part shopping strategy. Have you ever been shopping in lace up boots? Or a dress that zips on the back? Sucks. For me, half the battle is just getting a good pile of clothes worth the getting undressed to try on. Or when it comes to shoes, once I take off my shoe, I try on the whole store. Wearing a finicky outfit can make me more reluctant to give things a try.
Here, a lovely shopper is wearing a wonderfully chic and classic outfit, that’s perfect for shopping. Ballet flats for easy walking, and slipping on and off, a classic t-shirt that works well with layers, a blazer, and of course dark skinny jeans. The perfect building blocks for a wardrobe.
Honestly, I never thought much about it, but it’s true, I dress differently when I set out to go shopping in real life. Is this something you do to?
