A year or so ago, I stood in my closet and made a bold declaration about how I would dress from that day forward. The combination of turning 40, having three children, and running a rapidly growing business was making me wish I could just throw on one of my daughter’s school uniforms instead of trying to put an outfit together.

Hangers in hand, I resolved to find a simpler way forward. Not only was I having trouble deciding what to wear, I was spending precious energy during the day fussing with clothes – adjusting a waistband, tugging at a skirt, retucking a blouse that wouldn’t stay put.

2. Love everything I wore
3. Not think about or fuss with my clothes during the day
4. Feel as good when I came home as I did when I left the house
