There's nothing less motivating when you're getting dressed than looking outside to see a grey, dreary, wet day. While some use it as an excuse to toss on wellies and an oversized sweater, I try and see it as an exercise in self-efficacy: taking an otherwise dire situation and improving upon it by having a little fun. Whether that means challenging myself to style one of my favorite summer maxi dresses for Fall, or just tossing on a bright lipstick shade, making an effort to elevate my outfit in the morning gives me the jumpstart I need to combat a colorless day.
