Do you have a uniform?

I recently did a talk for women of the NZDF. These are people who wear uniforms (and from what I gather after talking to them, fairly ghastly ones at that) from Monday to Friday. But they, like many of you will also find that they swap one 'uniform' for another. Do you swap your work clothes for a uniform in the weekend of jeans and a T-shirt?

I bet many of you are nodding. It is really common to get stuck in a rut. To have that set top and trousers that you go to so you don't have to 'think' too hard. Or that you become so overly comfortable with that anything else just seems strange.

Anyone heard the saying 'variety is the spice of life"? Well it is true in many aspects and in particular in your wardrobe. There is nothing worse than feeling dull, frumpy and bored when you look at your clothing. Because you KNOW that transcends to how you express yourself when you meet other people. That lack of confidence with your clothes is pretty much what everyone's first impression is.

Don't get me wrong. A great pair of jeans and a T-shirt can look fantastic. But come on people! Not every single weekend, day in day out! Winter, summer, going out, staying in! If jeans are your 'thing' then think about say a pair of bootcut cords for winter. They have a jean 'style' but are not jeans. Likewise a pair of cotton 'jean-style' trousers.

If you are feeling brave how about a skirt! HOLY MOLY!!!!! lets go crazy and get a Maxi dress??!!!!! Spring is in the air and it is time for some changes. Make those colour and style changes. Inject life and adventure into your wardrobe. You won't regret it.

If you need help, come see us here at We are the perfect people to help you out of that rut, and into confident, happy, colourful, interesting clothing.

Hello Trudi!! Loving the idea of a maxi dress. Can we all wear them? Anything that hides the legs has to be a good thing. Hope you guys and gals are all good down in Welly.

Hi Sarah

I think if you search on this site you will find a whole blog dedicated to wearing Maxi dresses :-)

All is good here in sunny, windless Welly.
