I saw this on Gweneth Paltrow's website GOOP, and love the idea of having a uniform. You know, so you don't even have to think about getting dressed.

Click on the link and read the article. It's short and it's got me thinking.

Her uniform:

My uniform would be considerably less glamorous, expensive and well, TALL. But it's got me thinking . . .
1. I would love to come up with few "uniforms."
2. I would love to take pictures of my outfits, for future reference. (We did that with a couple of friends once, I post about this idea more a little later.)

I subscribe to GOOP (I am a huge Gwennie fan, ever since Sliding Doors and Emma), but I laughed at how ridiculously expensive her uniforms would be. Jill Stuart, Tod's, those boots/shoes alone are at least $500 a pair. But, you are right, you could find something much less expensive, although I would LOVE to own those Bottega riding boots. My current uniform is jeans, Gap t shirt, and flip flops. In the summer, it will change to shorts or skirt, Gap tank top, and flip flops. Pretty boring, but with 2 toddlers plus a baby I nanny for, it has to be easy and able to get messy!

i love the idea of a go-to uniform on days i am not feeling especially creative. my uniform now is basically (sweaty)gym clothes in the morning and grungy clothes in the afternoon and if you are lucky and there is an evening event i may put something together.
anywhooo, one of my new year's resolutions was to take pictures and make a quick reference outfit wall. it hasn't happened yet. i suggest you start one and post it here and hopefully i will do it too. hopefully we can inspire some new outfit choices.

I love GOOP! This is a great idea and after a wardrobe-design article that I read in INSTYLE last year I've had the take pictures and put them in a photo album on my to do list. Maybe this was the final piece of inspiration needed to get me moving! THANKS.
